Odd button mapping with 360 controller (troubleshooting expert needed)

ok let me get the usual answers out of the way- Windows 7 x64
  • i've reinstalled the drivers and xbox controller software multiple times with no result
  • have restarted multiple times
  • the devices (usb wireless adapter and controller) both appear in devices and printers and device manager
  • this is not a synching issue, the controller synchs fine
  • it is an official gamepad and has worked with no issue before
  • have tried disabling one or both in device manager
  • correct input is recognized via the testing menu
  • have tried x360ce, xpadder, and pinicale game profiler correct input is recognized but not transferred to the game. (all uninstalled now)
  • b is recognized as a, x is recognized as b, triggers controlling camera vertical axis
  • correct controls are recognized by steam big picture mode and certain games but not others.
  • have current directx, c++ package, and .net framework
  • yes the games are compatible and have been set to gamepad mode in the menu
i have tried every solution i have found during my search on the internet and nothing has worked so im hoping someone knows what the issue is. i think it is linked to xinput/dinput from what ive read but i am not sure. there are plenty of other examples of people with this issue on this google search.
