    My new wired controller isn't working.


    When I plug my controller in it vibrates, but it won't turn on. Yesterday it started to only connect when the chord was in a certain position, but now it won't turn on at all. I've tried using different USB chords but it still doesn't work.

    Hello NekoPeaches! I'm Kris and I'd be happy to help you with your question.

    Sorry to hear you are having issues. Which controller is this?

    Xbox 360 wired controller not functioning properly on my windows 11

    I've updated the driver and used this controller on other PCs with windows 11 and the problem still persists.

    The information of my system is attached below:
    Hi

    If your controller isn't working on other PC running Windows 11 it tells me something is wrong with your controller.

    There aren't any compatibility issues with older Xbox 360 controllers and Windows 11. I've just tried my old Xbox 360 wired controller in my brand new Windows 11 based PC and it works fine. The fact that it isn't working now is likely coincidental.

    Wired Xbox 360 controller not working on PC

    Thanks MildewySundew70, worked like a charm. I've been at this for a couple of hours. New the controller worked on both my xbox and my other laptop, a Toshiba, but my alienware 14x wouldn't accept it. BTW my controller was a wired one. so it works one both
    wireless and wired.

    XBOX360 and Android TV Box

    Hi,

    You should be able to. From my own experience, my old 360 controller has worked fine on Android. Quite a few games actually support controllers from the get go. Real Racing 3 worked straight away.

    Since the 360 isn't Bluetooth, you'll need to connect a wired controller to the USB port. And, it
    must be a true wired controller, play and charge won't work.

    Xbox One controller doesn't work with Windows 7 laptop

    the answer is it is a wireless controller they dont work with the usb charging cable ive tried it on windows 7 and 10 you need a proper wired controller apparently.
    That's true for 360 controllers, but not Xbox One. The Xbox One controllers work wired and via wireless on PC. My wiress controllers all work fine via the micro USB cable on my PC.

    Windows 7 doesn't come with drivers built in to the OS though, they may need need to be downloaded manually if Windows update isn't picking up the controller.
