New controller of XBox 360 not working properly

Asked By 20 points N/A Posted on -


I am using XBox 360 and bought a new controller recently. I attached it to a computer with Windows XP and ran the installation CD, the controller did not sync with the receiver. On pressing the sync button of the receiver, it starts flashing and pressing the same for the controller, the light starts spinning. Its an original controller brought from Microsoft retail store. What can the problem be with it? Can anyone help me troubleshoot this problem and repair it?

If this is a wireless controller, it will not work. At the time only wired controllers where  configured to work properly with Windows software. To install a wired controller. Follow the instructions on your disk. Make sure the controller is not plugged in when installing.

To make sure it works

Step 1: Click on start on search type joy.cpl.

Step 2: Click the controller. Go into  Properties

Step 3: Mess around with the controller pressing buttons and the like

Step 4: If that doesn’t work try a different USB plug
