  1. Series X Controller Issues


    Hi,

    I’m posting here out of desperation but hopefully something gets brought up that I haven’t tried yet. My situation is as follows:

    I bought a Series X controller to use with my PC and I’m aware there’s an issue with Windows 10 right now where it works fine wired but does not get recognised as an Xbox controller when used through Bluetooth (Shows up as Bluetooth LE controller or some weird name). Looking up online I’ve seen people have various success trying to solve this specific issue, some claiming that their controllers work perfectly over Bluetooth and others saying that their controllers are now in useable.

    After a few hours of tinkering I thought it might be a good idea to start over - I was supposed to go ahead and uninstall the Xbox Controller device in Device Manager but now I think I accidentally uninstalled something called “Xbox Controller 4461” (the numbers I assume are unique to my controller) under Bluetooth instead of under Xbox Peripherals. Now my controller won’t pair over Bluetooth with any PC, I’ve tried on 2 desktops and a laptop and so far no dice.

    At this point can I still salvage my controller or did I just do something irreversible?

  3. xbox series x controller via bluetooth not recognized in games

    The Bluetooth steps I gave were only in case you need them. The actual repair steps for your controller were the first links I gave. Have you started on them yet? Please do not skip any steps. We often find out later that the fix was the skipped step.
    If you need help performing any step I will help.

    More here including how to update these controllers:
