    Xbox Wireless Adapter for Windows - Turns off after turning on


    I recently re-installed windows 10 and now my Turtle Beach Stealth 600 no longer works, it worked before the reinstall of the same OS.


    I have the usb Xbox Wireless Adapter for Windows and a few seconds after it turns on it shuts itself off along with the wirelessly paired headphones.


    I have uninstalled and reinstalled all drivers, my system is currently up to date, I have NVIDIA Geforce Experience with Overlay turned off and do not have steam on my computer, I do have the blizzard interface for CoD. I have tried turning everything off and activating my headset and nothing works.


    The adapter is installed fine, something keeps shutting it off before the headset shows up in my audio I/O selections.

    Cannot turn on wireless adapter after clean install of Win10

    A couple years ago I upgraded my brother's Lenovo T420 Thinkpad from Win7 to Win10. All went well. No issues at all. Skip to present. For some reason the system would not boot to Windows. I opted to do a clean install. That went without issue, except now I cannot seem to turn on the wireless adapter / radio.

    • Windows Wifi settings radio is ON
    • Checked physical switch on side - ON
    • Checked BIOS - Nothing there
    • Checked Wireless ON/Off function key. They seem to work with other functions. Just do not turn on or off the wireless radio.
    • Went to Intel website and installed latest driver for the adapter
    • Went to Lenovo website. They do not offer Windows 10 support/driver etc for this model. When I try using their automated scanner to select the correct drivers and utilities it locks up. I assume because I am running Win10 and Win10 is not supported.
    • Since the original WIn7 x64 drivers and utilities worked before I was going to manually download and install, but their nomenclature is confusing. Software is listed Thinkpad, Laptop, Desktop, ThinkCentre. This is a Thinkpad laptop. Which do I download?

    The bottom line is that the wireless adapter worked fine after upgrade from Win7, but will not turn on since the clean install of Win10.

    Does anyone have any suggestions other than tell my brother I broke his laptop *Eek
