Windows 7: Xbox 360 wireless controller issue

Xbox 360 wireless controller issue

I have a wireless Xbox 360 controller for Windows that I have been using for a while now. I used it with Vista and then with Windows 7.
Everything worked perfectly until few days ago...when I tried to turn the controller on (pressing the middle button), the green lights just started flashing and blinking. The wireless receive had not lights on. I tried unplugging the receiver and plugging it back in but that did not help.
It's so weird since I just played LIMBO few days ago with the controller and now it's not working...

Can someone help me please with this issue. Thanks in advance!

Have you tried another USB port? When I was considering buying it I read reports of the receiver frying some ports due to its high power requirements.
