Xbox 360 Wireless Controller for Windows Won't Sync With The Receiver

I Have Windows 7 Home Premuim x64 Bit Service Pack 1

I just bought the Xbox 360 wireless controller for windows which comes with a receiver to play on the pc. when i got it i just plugged in the receiver and connected the controller it came with and it worked fine just after using for a while, did it stop connecting to the controller and after that i wouldn't connect anymore so i installed the software that it came with update the driver but still it won't connect then i unistalled the driver and software restarted the computer installed everything again and still i can't get the controller to sync with the receiver Ive looked everywhere and i cant find an answer

Even tried This But I cant install the diffrent driver because it says driver has already been installed and is up to date

I had this issue a while back, have you tried a different USB port? Mine was fixed by connecting via an externally powered USB hub

Does This Apply To Your Controller?

Synch the controller and USB dongle by pressing the button on the dongle, and then pressing the small white button at the top of the controller.

The one I have has four quadrant lights that when you press the large "X" it will select one of the quads and stay lit. The controller only works with some games I guess.

I used a cheap one from a supermarket, as long as its externally powered it should be fine, I used to use the rock band one for Xbox 360 and that worked a treat, so it's really personal preference
