    Xbox Wireless Controller Adapter not turning on?


    I recently bought a new game for my computer and i normally play it with my Xbox controller. I have had this controller for three years. I would normally Sync the controller and the Adapter, then I’m ready to play my game.

    But for some reason, this morning, the adapter wouldn’t turn on at all. The controller is working well, but I think there is something wrong with the adapter.
    I have tried searching this issue on google and nothing seems to work.

    The Xbox drivers don’t even show up in Device Manager when I look for it. I have plug the adapter a few times and nothing is working. I honestly don’t want to buy another controller. Please help.

    :)

    I would also suggest you to uninstall all the hidden devices under USB hive and check if you are able to connect the wireless adapter. Please follow the steps mentioned below to uninstall the hidden drivers:



    1. Press and hold the Windows + X key on the keyboard.
    2. Select Device manager.
    3. Click View tab.
    4. Select Show hidden devices.
    5. Expand Universal Serial Bus and remove all the greyed out devices. To remove the greyed out devices, right click on the device and select
      uninstall.
    6. Restart your computer.


    Please reply with the status of the issue, we will be glad to help you further.
