    XBOX 360 Controller Won't Sync with Receiver


    I've reserached for hours and I can't find any info that works.


    To start, my device manager DOES recognise the receiver and I've tried all drivers. If I press the sync button on both the controller and receiver they will "recognise" each other but won't connect.


    I was using my controller for Forza and after being idle for 5 mins it's gone haywire.


    Anyone know what else I can do?

    :)
