  1. Xbox Wireless Controller Remove Failed


    Recently my Xbox One wireless controller has stopped connecting to my PC.


    When I go to PC Settings and go to Bluetooth & other devices I see that there is an Xbox Wireless Controller already there, however when I try to remove this it says "Remove failed" after a few seconds.


    I have tried going to Device Manager and uninstalling the device from there, but when I scan for hardware changes it just reappears so obviously isn't uninstalling.


    I can't connect my controller through Bluetooth or USB anymore and it's very frustrating so any help would be appreciated.

    :)

  3. Wireless Xbox One controller requires PIN for Windows 10.

    Hi,

    You will be asked for a PIN when connecting your wireless Xbox One controller via Bluetooth on Windows 10 if your Bluetooth drivers are not updated. It is also possible that you have to reset the controller to remove the PIN. To resolve your concern, restart
    your controller by following the steps below:

    • Power off the controller by pressing and holding the Xbox button on the controller for 6 seconds.
    • Press the Xbox button again to power it back on.
    • Connect your Xbox Wireless Controller to your PC using a USB cable or the Xbox Wireless Adapter for Windows.

    You can also update your Bluetooth drivers by following the steps on this
    link
    .

    Keep us updated with the results after performing the suggested solutions above.
