  1. Connecting A Controller to Computer


    I'm having problems trying to get an Xbox One controller connected to my Windows 8 computer via USB. I don't think that my computer is recognizing that I have a controller plugged in and I don't know how to fix it. Can anyone help?

    :)

    Can’t connect Xbox one controller to pc

    Hello SubieTY,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    Initially, we need to pair the device to show up in the list while connected through Bluetooth. Check with the below mentioned steps and see if it works.


    Hope it helps.

    1. Open Admin command and type: ipconfig

    2. Win+X->Control Panel->Netwok and Sharing Center
      Follow the screen shot. This should disable internet access from this PC but allows access to local device(s)
      NOTE: Use the IP & Subnet Mask from step 1. Leave Default gateway & DNS Server blank

    Xbox Controller is not connecting to Wireless Adapter

    Hi,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    I appreciate your time and patience to work on this issue. To have a better clarity on the issue please reply to the following questions:



    • Are you using an Xbox one controller?


    If you are using an Xbox one controller, I suggest you to refer the steps in the article

    How to connect an Xbox One Wireless Controller to a Windows PC
    and see if that helps in resolving the issue.



    I would also suggest you to uninstall all the hidden devices under USB hive and check if you are able to connect the wireless adapter. Please follow the steps mentioned below to uninstall the hidden drivers:



    1. Press and hold the Windows + X key on the keyboard.
    2. Select Device manager.
    3. Click View tab.
    4. Select Show hidden devices.
    5. Expand Universal Serial Bus and remove all the greyed out devices. To remove the greyed out devices, right click on the device and select
      uninstall.
    6. Restart your computer.


    Please reply with the status of the issue, we will be glad to help you further.
