    Nintendo Switch Pro Controller and Windows 10


    Hello.

    So I have recently built a new PC.

    Win10 64 bit
    AMD Ryzen 5 5600X 6-Core Processor 3.70 GHz

    Mother Board: Asus TUF Gaming x570-Plus


    I have been unable to get Windows 10 to recognize my Nintendo Switch Pro controller.

    This controller worked and STILL works on my old PC Intel gen 2 i7 cpu and a gigabyte mobo


    The controller also works on my brothers PC which has the same hardware as mine,

    The USB ports work on the board as I used the same USB C cable to charge my Google Pixel 4a and transfer video files to my hard drive.


    I've updated the chipset of both the Motherboard and CPU, I'm currently running the most recent update of Windows 10.0.19042 build 19042

    The ports are not just identifying the drivers for the controller but there is no power draw to even charge the device.


    I've been on Asus forums I've been on AMD forums and no resolution has been reached.


    At this point I believe it to be an issue with Windows it makes no sense that my Controller can be identified and function on two other separate machines one being near identical to mine and yet when I try getting it to work with my PC its as if the USB is not connected to any device.


    Any thoughts or assistance is greatly appreciated.

    :)

    Nintendo Switch Pro Controller not being detected by Windows 10

    Hi,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    We appreciate your effort on this. We understand that when you connect the Nintendo Switch Pro controller to the computer, it is not being detected, we will look into this for you.



    However, it would be great if you can help us with the details requested below:



    • Does the Nintendo Switch Pro controller gets detected in any other computer?
    • Were you able to use the Nintendo Switch Pro controller earlier on your current computer?
    • Is any other USB Device detected on your computer?
    • Do you see any Unknown device or a yellow yield sign on any device in Device Manager?
    • May I know the troubleshooting steps that you have tried so far?


    To check for unknown devices, you can press Windows key + X, and select
    Device Manager.



    If you see any Unknown device or a device with yellow yield, right click on the device and select
    Update Driver.



    However, we would also suggest you to refer the steps mentioned in the article

    Error: “USB Device not recognized” when you try to access a USB external hard drive.
    except Method 1 and 2 and check if that helps in resolving the issue.



    Let us know how it goes.



    Regards,

    Nikhar Khare

    Nintendo Switch Pro controller and Nintendo Gamecube PowerA Controller connection issues.

    My problem is that my Nintendo Switch Pro Controller can't seem to connect to software such as Steam, but is recognized as a device. And, my GameCube PowerA controller won't connect at all to my new HP Pavilion desktop when it connected to my much older
    Dell Inspirion.

    Please respond at the nearest convenience
