    Xbox Series X Controller Keeps Disconnecting in PC Games?!


    So I've had a Series X controller (WIRELESS CONTROLLER BUT USING A USB CABLE) now for a good 6-8(?) months and had no issues. Last week it randomly started cutting out whilst in game (F1/Rocket league) and I would have to unplug and replug the usb cable to get it to work again, although this fix would only last 5-10 minutes. I changed USB cable and changed USB port. No fix. So i reinstalled drivers and still no luck. So I thought the controller was borked and decided to get a new one. But it's still happening. Sometimes it will stop working and the light will stay on and other times the light will start flashing (as if trying to sync?) It's like my PC just stops recognising the controller for some reason.

    Another thing to mention is that when I tab out of games after the controller disconnects my PC is eternally stuck scrolling through stuff (or holding tab?) For example if i try and open a drop down menu it will just either scroll through repeatedly or scroll straight to the bottom. If i reconnect the controller it doesn't fix the issue and i have to restart my PC to fix it. Even if i unplug the controller it still keeps scrolling. I'm assuming the issue is connected.

    So to conclude I've reinstalled Drivers. Updated Windows. Changed the USB cable and USB port. Bought a new controller. Issue still persists. I've looked all over the internet but the only people who have had similar problems were having issues with the Blutooth and it worked fine over USB. I'm not using Blutooth so the advice doesnt apply to me.

    Would really appreciate any help as I really need a stable controller for Competitive RL. Thanks!

    :)

    I've bought a xbox pc controller but it does not work properly.

    I'm Samy an independent advisor. Welcome to the community. How are you?

    Is your Xbox 360 or Xbox One/Series S/X controller? Currently, your controller does not turn on at all even disconnected from your PC?

    Xbox Series X Sync button/synced controller stopped. Sync button must work as I am able to get to BIOS. Sync button wont blink.

    Thanks for the reply. Interesting, I did not know that it was "wirelessly" connected while connected to a USB C Data Cord. As soon as I unplug, it stays disconnected (in sync mode the controller also keeps blinking then turns off). If this is right I don't know why I also can't sync any of my other Xbox controllers to the series X unless connected with a cord (works on an One X controller also, stops when unplugged). I don't know why the sync button (blinking) stopped operating all together.

    I replaced my batteries and tried to pull and place back in earlier with no luck. I also updated the controller as I set up as new.

    The interesting thing is I am able to use the series X controller perfectly on PC wirelessly with windows 10/Xbox PC adapter. I have no problems on PC wireless.

    Hi,

    The Series S and X controllers work on same devices the earlier controller can connect to. This includes:

    Xbox One Game receiver for Windows 10

    Bluetooth (PC, Android, iOS)

    Xbox One, One S, X and Series X/S.

    Xbox Series X Controller Keeps Disconnecting in PC Games?!

    Ive had this issue before. one way that this issue might be caused is the batteries in the controller are low, even if its wired it still causes this issue.

    As for the endlessly scrolling issue this can be many things, one of these this is that you may have an application installed that is controlling your peripherals if so i would recomend you uninstall this program,

    if this is not the case go to setting click "Update & Security" go to "Recovery" and click reset this PC

    Yes. It took a couple of hard restarts, but it eventually re-synced (before eventually disconnecting again).
