Xbox 360 game controller drivers not installing
So I just got this Xbox 360 controller for gaming and downloaded the hardware at the Microsoft Hardware web site, but when I go to activate it in the "game controllers" option in the control panel, the icon doesn't show.
So I went on the internet trying to find some way to get around this whole thing.
I found a post on this web site that was very useful and it took me to device manager where I followed the step by step instructions to install the driver, but when I tried to install the driver on my PC it would say:
"Windows found driver software for your device but encountered an error while attempting to install it."
Then it says: "This device cannot start. (Code 10)"
I don't know what else to do and I'm a noob when it comes to computers. Please help.

Description of Code 10-related errors
The Code 10 error code is generated when Device Manager has insufficient information or the error that is bubbled up by the device drivers is not recognized by Device Manager. Additionally, this error may occur when one of the drivers that the device needs does not start. If many drivers are being used by a particular device, it can be difficult to determine the one that failed.
This link should pop up a Fix-It solution, give it a try.
