    Can't download drivers when I plugged the controller into the laptop


    Hello,


    I am having trouble connecting the ps4 controller to my laptop. I have tried a USB connection and it did not work. When I tried the Bluetooth connection, it worked and the lightbar showed me a light blue colour and then I went into the settings Bluetooth tab it says that it is connected but when I tried to use the DS4 program it says that no controller found. Also went to the control panel, device and printers section, the controller is there but when I clicked to show more info on the controller, everything is unavailable for some reason. I tried troubleshooting and it came up with no problems found.


    I hope someone can help me with this issue.


    Thank you.

    :)

  4. Can't download drivers when I plugged the controller into the laptop

    Plugged in but battery does not charge

    If the laptop works without the battery then charger is functioning correctly. Take a cloth with a bit of rubbing alcohol on it (or some on-the-go alcohol swabs), and clean the metal contacts that connect your battery to your laptop.

    Make sure to install all Windows important updates.

    Install latest versions of your laptop device drivers you can download the latest device drivers from the device manufacturer or from your laptop manufacturer website.


    Step 1

    1. Shutdown your laptop.

    2. Remove the battery.

    3. Connect the AC power adapter to your laptop.

    4. Power on the laptop

    5. Open the Device Manager by typing Devmgmt.msc into Start Menu or from Control Panel.

    6. Under the Batteries category, right-click all of the Microsoft ACPI Compliant Control Method Battery listings, and select Uninstall (it’s ok if you only have 1).
