    Wireless Gaming Adapters: Xbox One S Controller Wont stay paired to PC
    Hey my PC for some reason wont connect to the Xbox one S controller I just got via Bluetooth

    Here is what happens:

    - Says controller ready to pair

    - Asks for password (just click next)

    - Says "Connected"

    - Then says "Paired"

    - After that, the controller keeps blinking as if still in pairing mode

    - Then in Bluetooth Devices it says "Xbox Wireless Controller Ready to Pair" again!

    And then the process repeats itself.

    It connects when I use a USB cord but the cord is too short to use comfortably.

    I have fully updated windows 10. And it the Bluetooth adapter can connect to my other devices. Any Suggestions?

    :)

    Xbox One Windows 10 Wireless Adapter Issues

    To the OPs problem for no sound and no vibration that should be fixed with the latest driver updates.

    For pairing, how are you pairing the controller? I have mentioned this on other posts, one easy alternate way to pair is to have your controller connected wired to the PC, plug in the Wireless Adapter to the PC as well, wait like 5 seconds, and unplug the
    controller, the driver stack will automatically have paired the controller to the adapter, just like on the Xbox.

    Once you pair the controller successfully and never use that controller for any other PC or Xbox, then the address of the adapter is saved in the controller. Repairing to the same adapter is not required. If it is not connecting, plug/unplug the adapter
    instead to reset the adapter.

    Xbox One Wireless Adapter for Windows 10 disconnects after 7 seconds

    I purchased an Xbox One Elite Controller and Xbox One Wireless Adapter for Windows 10 and can't get them to stay connected. They will sync up fine but will not stay connected for more than 5-7 seconds at a time. The light on the wireless adapter will turn
    off after being connected for a short time, and then a few seconds later will pair up again. I've tried reinstalling the drivers and my Xbox One controller works fine when plugged in via USB. Please help as this is incredibly frustrating. PC is running Windows
    10, of course.

    How to connect new controller to microsoft windows controller adapter?

    Hello Quinquadrate,

    I asume you are talking about the official Xbox Wireless Adapter Controller.

    Is that is true, you can follow the steps described in here for connecting it : https://beta.support.xbox.com/help/...ories/xbox-wireless-adapter-for-windows-setup

    If not, the other solution is :

    Plug the Wireless Adapter to your PC

    Connect your Xbox One Controller to your PC via USB cable

    When the controller is connected, unplug the USB cable from the controller

    At this point, the controller should be paired with your Wireless Adapter (or at least, that works for me everytime!)

    Xbox Controller Settings

    Usually, if the controller is paired with the PC, it should not turn on the console anymore, as it should only be able to be bound to one single devic.

    There is no setting to "force" the console to stay off when a bound controller is turned on. What Adapter did you get? Is it a Bluetooth adapter or an actual Xbox Wireless gaming adapter?

    Can you try to connect the controller to the PC via a Micro-USB data cable (be aware that some smartphone charging cables only have the power lines connected, but have no data lines, so the controller won't be properly detected with such charging cables)?

    If you connect it once with an USB cable, the controller should "forget" it was bound to the console, and now that it's bound to the PC, should not turn on the console anymore.

    Xbox controller on PC

    Hello,

    When you say Xbox controller, you mean an XBox one? it seems to me that the first version of the XBox One controller does require an adapter to be able to connect to your PC. The newest version of the XBox One controller does support Bluetooth communication
    and hence it can be paired to a PC.
    its an xbox one controller and i cant do bluetooth because my pc wont allow it
