#17chopsticks7Posted 4/20/2013 3:47:23 PM
i just bought an xbox 360 wireless controller, and a receiver for my laptop,
and somehow i just cant seem to connect my controller and i cant understand why
all four lights keep blinking on my controller, then when i press connect it starts circling, and then all four lights start to blink again.
while doing this i also press the connect button on the receiver obviously.
i just repeat this multipul times and still nothing..
i even followed all these steps and still it didnt help:

i heard awhile back that they are very power hungry, something about unplugging all other usb devices and it should work.

unplugging all usb devices also didnt work, and still continued having the same problem

the receiver shouldn't show up as unknown device if you use the software from the webpage.
