wired 360 controller not being read by my computer

#1chrono625Posted 10/27/2013 11:40:08 AM
Just updated to 8.1 and now my 360 controller is not being picked up. I plug it in and it will blink a few seconds and goes blank.

Is there a specific driver for it?

Check device manager first, the driver should automatically install on 8.1.

I checked the device manager and I see XBOX 360 CONTROLLER with a yellow problem mark.

Is there any place to download 8.1 drivers?

unplug it
right click in device manager and uninstall it
plug it in
let it reinstall drivers

I'm not running win 8, but that's the first thing to try with plug and play accessories.

Is it madcatz? If so you may need a custom driver.

Oh, you thought they made this game for you? You clearly bought the wrong game.
