  1. Xbox one controller S won't pair with Windows 10 computer


    My new bluetooth controller worked perfectly out of the box then the controller went to sleep and I was never able to connect it again. I tried pairing it again and now it will show up as Input instead of xbox controller and will not pair.

    :)

    Bluetooth Pairing - Xbox One Elite Controller

    Hi,

    I've got a new Alienware desktop running Win 10 Home x64. Bluetooth appears to be working, but I'm not getting the Xbox One Elite Controller in the list of available devices when I attempt the pairing. The light on the controller flashes normally when I
    press the pairing button, but on the PC, I'm only getting four or five generic 'unknown' devices. I've tried a few, but none will connect.

    To troubleshoot, I unplugged the power from the Xbox, just to make sure there wasn't a pairing conflict between the game console and Windows. Doesn't help. I've also tried pairing in the new Win 10 interface, as well as through NCPA.cpl.

    When I get home, I'm going to try pairing the controller with another computer, but I'm also interested in any suggestions this community can provide.

    Regards,

    Brad
