    Trying to connect xbox controller to laptop


    I've been trying to connect my xbox controller to my laptop. I am aware that I have the older controller and so I need a micro usb to connect it. however, when I plug the controller into the laptop it keeps flashing without connecting.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    :)

    What version of Windows is on your computer? It needs to be Windows 10. You'll also need the Xbox app installed. If you're good on both of those things, first try other USB ports on your computer. You can also try to update the firmware on it through the
    Xbox Accessories app for Windows 10.

    My earbuds are not working well

    So if I understand you correctly, you are streaming from your console to your laptop, and you have your controller connected to the laptop with your earbuds connected to the controller?

    How is your controller connected to the laptop? Via MicroUSB cable or via the Xbox wireless adapter for Windows 10?

    Controller Not Connecting to My Windows 10 Laptop.

    Hi Mister Quasar,

    First of all, thanks for responding.

    I do have an Xbox One S that the controller works fine with, and I did try following that guide, but the said problems came up.

    I wasn't able to connect the controller to another Windows 10 laptop, but that was because the laptop itself has some sort of problem with the Bluetooth.

    I do know that on my laptop, when I try and click to connect to the controller, it comes up with the message: "Check the PIN and try connecting again".

    Sorry, the image is a bit big.

    no party chat when streaming xbox app.

    this is a known common issue. a few things that worked for me.

    1. connect the controller to the laptop rather than xbox. i use the xbox wireless apadter so i can wirelessly connect my controller to the laptop.

    or

    2. start the xbox then load the game. once in the game start the xbox app and start streaming it to your laptop. then resync the controller to the xbox. this works 8 out of 10 times.
