  1. Trouble with WIRED xbox controller for PC


    I have seen others post on this in the past but I have not been able to find a solution for my problem. My wired xbox controller stopped working with my pc all of a sudden. It was like the power just went out. Now, whenever I plug the controller in, the
    lights flash in player 1 and player 4 positions and then the lights go out. I am using windows 7 and my machine is custom built. The controller worked for about 5 months before stopping suddenly. I do not have an xbox to test the controller with.

    I have tried re-installing the drivers. I have tried restarting. I have tried every usb port on my computer. I have manually updated the drivers through the device manager. A weird thing is that a while ago I tried plugging the controller in and it worked
    suddenly, for about 1 hour, and then died again. Since then I have tried all of the things above again with no success.

    Has anyone been able to solve this issue? I have been digging through various forums for solutions and I haven't found anything.

    :)

    ^^I'm pretty sure you can plug in your Xbox 360 controller to your PC for The Binding of Isaac if your controller is wired, for Braid as well and other PC games with controller support added.

    controller for Windows

    To play on a PC with an Xbox 360 controller you need to get a wired controller. On Xbox 360 the "wire" is only used for charging on the wireless controller.

    Hiya!

    Paul from the Xbox Forums Team here to assist with the issue, it looks like you're trying to get a Xbox 360 controller to work on your pc. How is this controller connecting to your PC? Is it a wired controller or wireless controller? If it's a wireless 360
    controller there is a wireless dongle that would be needed to have the controller work on PC. Please let us know.

    Happy Gaming!

    This is wired USB controller. I think that wire is broken.

    Sorry for bad English.

    Wired versus Wireless Controllers/Headsets

    I used wired when I play PC for both Controller and headset. On xbox, I use a wireless controller, but a wired headset.

    Xbox 360 wireless controller.

    You can't, however you can use a WIRED Xbox 360 controller to play games on a pc as the drivers for the wired controller are built into Windows

    Hey there InnerTerror3090.

    Sorry to hear about the controller troubles on your PC. To make certain, did you purchase an official wired controller, or are you using a Play & Charge kit to connect your controller? Be sure to check under Device Manager to verify if the controller is connected
    as well. Keep us looped in with how it goes.
