Windows 7: Xbox 360 Controller (Wired) Issues

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
Xbox 360 Controller (Wired) Issues

Hi guys,

Bear with me, I'm not the most proficient with technology and such so technical jargon and the lot will just confuse me
NOTE: I have read other forums with similar problems but it doesn't seem to be working out for me (then again half the time I have no idea what they are saying -.-)

I have an Xbox360 controller (wired) which I want to connect to my Laptop to play games. Unfortunately it's not connecting, and I'm not sure what the problem is (Microsoft Accessories status doesn't pick up connection either).

So um, please and thanks
