  1. Controllers won't show up in bluetooth list Windows 11


    Hi,I recently bought a new pc and tried to pair my xbox elite series 2 controller to it, it did not show up in the bluetooth list. Assuming I did something wrong I check if I could connect the controller to a different device, that seemed to work just fine.So the error is in my pc, maybe the bluetooth was just broken, I've tried reinstalling my bluetooth drivers by uninstalling them in device manager, I updated the xbox controller, I've updated my windows and basically everything is up to date, still not working. I was thinking to buy a different controller to see if that would work, so I boug

    Xbox controller does not show up in Bluetooth pairing list

    I had an Xbox One wireless controller for PC and I have been using it on Win11. A couple of days ago I have unpaired (removed) the device from Bluetooth paired devices list. Since that day, I am unable to pair the controller anymore. The controller is in pair mode, but it does not show up in the detected device list.

    What I have tried so far:

    • Connected the controller via USB cable and it is working
    • Paired the controller to another PC and it is working
    • Reinstalled bluetooth drivers (did not help)
    • Refreshed firmware on controller (did not help)
    Today I have bought an Xbox Series X/S wireless controller for PC too and it does the same error. The device cannot be paired and it does not show up in the list.

    Could anyone help me with this problem? I have bought two controller already and none of those are working via Bluetooth. Both can be paired to another PC, so the controllers are fine. It has been working on my PC before until I have unpaired it manually.

    Also my Bluetooth is working because I am able to connect any other devices but Xbox controllers.

    4870x2 won't display at 1680x1050 at all!

    OK. Now I know what ur problem is. Step by step:
    1. Go to Catalyst Control Center
    2. Click on the word "Graphic" right on top left corner. It will display drop down menu
    3. Click on Display monitor and will see the list of monitor at near bottom
    4. Right Click the monitor and select "Configure". It will show up the window
    5. There will be 3 option to select. Select the middle one and then click on the tab which show the bar with 15%.
    6. Drag the bar to max, and the screen will stretch to the native resolution 1680x1050.
    7. Also click the tab with showing RGB drop down list and select the last one (it will change to image quality for pc).
    That's it. Good Luck.

    Xbox controller does not show up in Bluetooth pairing list

    Hi RiCE41,

    Thank you for reaching Microsoft Community. We're sorry for the inconvenience this has caused you.

    I am aware about the trouble you’re having with pairing your Xbox controllers to your PC through Bluetooth. I value the time and effort you have given out in trying to resolve the problem. I am here to help you further and let us work on this together.

    • Would you mind sharing the make and model of your PC?
    Here are a few additional steps you might try:

    Make sure that your Windows device is running the latest update. To check that your device is up to date:

    1. Select the Start button on your taskbar.
    2. Enter Settings in the search bar, and then select the Settings app.
    3. Select Windows Update > Check for updates.
    Run Bluetooth troubleshooter.

    Try these solutions if your controller doesn’t connect and/or your controller’s light blinks but never pairs with your Windows device.

    1. Select the Start button on your taskbar, and then enter Bluetooth in the search bar.
    2. Select Find and fix problems with Bluetooth devices.
    3. Use the prompts on-screen to complete the troubleshooter.
    Restart your PC.

    Select the Windows logo key > Power >Restart.

    Remove Interference.

    Move closer to your PC and eliminate potential interference (such as from cell phones or other Bluetooth devices).

    The steps can be found at Set up Bluetooth on your Xbox Wireless Controller | Xbox Support.

    Let me know how it goes.

    Kind regards,

    Lavenia
