  1. Xbox One Controller Wireless Adapter for Windows drops the controller and then stays on


    When I turn on my pc everything is fine. My controller doesn't trigger the wireless adapter though so I have to push the little button on the side of it, and the same one on the top of the controller. After they find each other the controller only stays connected to the adaptor for about 10 seconds then start blinking. The adapter on the other hand doesn't start blinking, and in fact the light stays on and solid even after I turn the computer off. If I try to push the little button on the adaptor nothing happens. The light doesn't start to blink, nothing. Also if I pull the adaptor out it won't make a sound or turn back on when I plug it back in.

    :)
