    Xbox one controller wired on PC


    Hi,

    So i connect my xbox one controller to my pc without a problem, plug and play.

    I use it on steam to play some games and for some reason whenever i hold the controller to 'flat' position it shuts itself off.

    When I hold the controller vertically in my hand i can play perfectly for hours, however when i hold it a bit to low, ie angle of 45 it shuts itself off. When i then take it to 90 degree agle it turns back on...

    Does anybody have an idea why this happens?

    Can’t connect Xbox one controller to pc

    Hello SubieTY,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    Initially, we need to pair the device to show up in the list while connected through Bluetooth. Check with the below mentioned steps and see if it works.


    Hope it helps.

    Xbox One Controller Wired Connection Registers as Generic Controller

    Hi Trey,

    Using a micro-USB cable is one way on how you can connect your Xbox One Controller to a Windows 10 PC. Once connected, it will install the most current drivers needed for your controller. Regarding your concern, have you tried using another micro-USB
    cable? If not, we suggest that you uninstall first the current driver for your Xbox One Controller on your computer, restart, and then connect the controller using another USB cable.
    There's a possibility that it affects the computer to get the correct driver for your controller.

    If your Xbox One Controller still treated as the generic controller, we recommend that you manually install the driver by performing the following steps:

    • Press Windows Key + X and choose Device Manager from the list.
    • Once Device Manager opens, locate and right-click Xbox One Controller.
    • From the menu choose Update Driver Software.
    • Click on Browse my computer for driver software.
    • Click Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer.
    • Locate Microsoft Xbox One Controller on the list and click
      Next
      to install it. If you can’t locate Microsoft Xbox One Controller driver, you might have to uncheck
      Show compatible hardware option.

    Let us know if that works for you.

    Xbox One controller not recognised by windows 10 PC

    Hi,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    1. Were you able to use the XBOX One controller on this computer before?
    2. Have you tried connecting the XBOX controller on a different computer?


    Here are the few steps you can try to fix the issue.



    1. Select Start, then Run, then type
      sysdm.cpl
      , and then select OK.
    2. On the Hardware tab, select Device Manager.
    3. When the controller is successfully installed, you see three entries in Device Manager. There should be two entries under
      Human Interface Devices:
    HID-compliant game controller

    USB Human Interface Device

    Additionally, there should be a third entry in under
    Microsoft Common Controller for Windows Class:

    Xbox One Controller for Windows

    1. If you see yellow exclamation points next to any of these entries, there's a problem with the installation.
    2. Double-click Xbox One Controller for Windows.
    On the Driver tab, select
    Update Driver and check the status of the issue.



    You may also refer the suggestions from
    Catherine Cus dated August 24, 2017,
    if the above
    suggested steps doesn’t fix the issue.

    Hope it helps.
