  1. I think my XBOX wireless adapter for windows 10 broke with less than a months use


    I got this thing July 5 and it was working great with a basic black 60 dollar XBOX series S/X controller until today. I was playing gears of war ultimate edition and it just stopped responding the light on the adapter and the controller was lit indicating it was still connected. I turned it on and off the lights turned off and on correctly on the adapter and controller but there is zero PC recognition nothing in the accessories app just nothing and no buttons worked. I unplugged the adapter plugged it back on lights work multiple USB ports nothing. At this point I uninstalled the adapter and deleted the driver and reinstalled it rebooted the PC and it worked for 20 minutes until the same thing happened. So I’m like ok I’m gonna use it wired so I plugged it in wired and the XBOX light is blinking like it still trying to connect to the adapter like it’s in wireless mode not wired mode and it would not work wired. I even took out the batteries. So I thought great my controller is broken. Then I rebooted my PC and retried it wired and it worked I gamed for 5 hours and rebooted my PC a couple times to make sure it wasn’t like trying to go back to wireless mode and it didn’t. Everything worked perfect and the latency seemed immensely better im not sure why. I don’t have any problem using it wired from now on I just don’t know if it’s actually broken the same thing happens every time when I try to use it or if there is anything I can do. Thanks

    :)
