  1. PS3 Controller with SCP Toolkit stops working since Windows Update


    Ever since the most recent Windows update, my Playstation 3 controller stops working if no buttons are hit after 20 or 30 seconds or after I use my USB external keyboard on my laptop. This is a problem because when I play Final Fantasy XIV, sometimes I need to type something in the chat window during dungeons or boss fights. Sometimes I need to type something in in order to make an event trigger, and going back to my controller, only to see that it is unresponsive.

    When the controller stops working, the "Player 1" light is still lit indicating that both Windows and SCP Toolkit registers that the controller is plugged into the USB port but the buttons are just unresponsive. The only way that I can fix this is by unplugging and plugging the PS3 controller back in. This is a major problemespecially if I am playing healer in Final Fantasy XIV.

    This issue started literally after restarting to install the most recent update a few weeks ago. I got the update around midday and I used the controller for several hours without any issues before the update. After I decided to restart and let my computer install updates, this issue started immediately after those updates.

    I tried a reinstall of SCP Toolkit and the drivers that come with it, but it made no difference.

    I have heard that that update has caused a lot of games, apps, and programs to not function properly but I am not seeing anything regarding the problem that I am having with the PS3 controller since the update.

    This is an HP Envy 17 j177nr with Windows 10 Home 64-bit


    Does anybody know what the problem could be?

    :)

  3. USB/PS3 Controller Error

    I'm having a problem with my PS3 controller, it turns off randomly when i'm playing, and then if i for example disconnect my mouse and connect it again it will stop working too until i turn off my computer same thing for every USB device but it seems it's
    starting with the controller, when i check my devices page it shows an xbox 360 controller with a yellow warning marker even though i've never used an xbox controller on my computer, it also gets very hard for my computer to turn off when this happens and
    takes longer than usual for it to turn on again, i use scp server to use the ps3 controller so i do not know if this could be the case even though i've used it for years now
