  1. PS4 Controller not connecting to anything


    Hi, so after I got a new computer with windows already installed on it, I haven't been able to connect the controller at all, before, it would just show an orange light continuously and any of the programs that I would use for the controller such as Steam or any other game would not recognize the controller, after tinkering with it a bit, i found that I don't even have something called libusb-win32, I tried tinkering around with that, as well as DS4Windows, which wouldn't even see my controller anyway, after nothing worked, I compared it to another laptop in the house, which seemed to read the controller just fine, Steam and other games would see it as well, so, when I looked at the drivers the laptop had I saw that it has no drivers, so I tinkered even more and I got to the point where the drivers were missing and instead of a game controller it went to a HID usb device with no drivers. Now, whenever I connected it, the controller didn't register as being plugged in, there was no light, nothing, if I pressed the button to connect to the PS4 the home button it would just keep flashing white, trying to connect to the PS4, then I read a post that said that I could add a new driver for my HID usb device and make it back to a game controller, I did that but still no response both from my controller and the computer, going on Steam and recovering Steam Firmware Controller doesn't help either, I'm at a dead end and I have no options, I tried mostly everything. To summarize, I probably don't have the right drivers, or don't have drivers at all for the PS4 but I can't find them anywhere, everything says to download DS4Windows which doesn't do anything for me.

    :)

  2. Unable to connect PS4 controller to PC

    I can connect the ps4 controller just fine, my issue is that it wont show up at all after being paired. I have to unpair it, connect the device, enter the 4 digit code, it gets very tiresome. Method 1 didn't work because I had no greyed out devices. Method
    2 I have been doing, I am just trying to figure out a quicker way to connect it.

  3. Unable to connect PS4 controller to PC

    I play video games regularly and I use a ps4 controller to play them. I use a bluetooth usb adapter to connect the ps4 controller to my pc, however, I always have to go into settings, click " remove device" from the pc, then connect with bluetooth and type
    in the four digit pin which is 0000. I tried using the "windows key + a" shortcut to open the menu with all the connection options then click connect. When I click connect nothing shows up even though my controller is on pairing mode. Is there a fix for this
    issue?
