Windows 7: Xbox 360 controller not working on PC.

Xbox 360 controller not working on PC.

Hello. I don't know if i am posting in the right section , feel free to move my thread.
I am sorry for my english but i'm a bit frustrated right now , which is why i made myself an account to post on this forum.

The problem is when i'm plugging my xbox 360 controller on my computer , the lights are flashing and i can't use it.
I have downloaded the good drivers on microsoft website. (My controller is wired by the way.)
I have downloaded the driver multiple times , uninstalled it , restarted my computer etc.
I have tried everything that was on the internet , at this point i don't know what to do anymore and i'm frustrated.

In fact , the controller works fine and the driver too , but when i move the controller or take it in my hands , the lights start flashing and it looks like the driver ''disconnect''.
I have made a video of it where you can see me taking the controller in my hands and the lights flashing , you also hear a noise of ''new material detected'' when it flash because the driver stop working for a second or two.
Also , if i move too much with the controller , i get a blue screen of death.
All my drivers are up to date , i'm using a program called DriverUpdate and i have the full version of it.

Thank you for future assistance. I highly appreciate it and sorry again for my english , i described my problem as much as i could.

Try a different USB slot.

If you are using Windows 7, and have the wired 360 controller for PC, there should be not need to download drivers at all.
Just plug it in and wait for the message its ready.

Its possible the USB slot its plugged into is not getting a good connection.


Another proble could be the Driver Update program has installed a bad, or wrong driver for something. Im not sure about the particular one you are using, but many guess and are quite often wrong.
You are better off letting Windows get what you need, or download directly from the manufacturers site.
