  1. Xbox Controller Freezes on PC


    My Xbox Elite Series 2 controller keeps "freezing" whilst in game. The controller stops accepting inputs, but holds on the input that was being pressed. If the analogue stick is pointing left, it stays pointing left but no other buttons work. It happens more frequently the longer it's in use.

    I'm using the controller plugged in, and the only temporary fix is to unplug the controller and plug it back in again.

    Other inputs(keyboard, mouse, ect.) still work. I've tried multiple USB ports, updating the controller using the Xbox Accessories App, making sure other drivers/Windows updates are up to date(I'm not aware that I took an update that caused the issue).

    Anyone got any suggestions?

    Thanks

    :)

    Xbox Controller Freezes on PC

    Hello, Craig. Thanks for reaching out. I'm Lucas, an Independent Advisor and a Microsoft user just like you. I'll be glad to help you out.

    Are you able to test it on other computer or a console to see if it works fine? This way we can know if it's a Controller issue or Windows/Software issue.

    Also, this always happened with the controller or it started to happen a few hour/days/weeks?

    Waiting for your answers, my friend.

    Hi Lucas

    I might be able to test it on another device in a few days. I don't own a console or another PC to test it on, so I'll have to see if I can borrow one.

    The problem started happening a couple of days ago, the controller is probably 18 months old or so.

    Thanks

    Controller stopping randomly

    Have you try with USB cable connected to update the firmware?

    The controller is old (wireless) our new (Bluetooth), because if is new and you have a PC with Bluetooth you can try on PC and if see its freeze there too. If that happens its the controller.
