    Why does my Xbox elite controller series 2 refuses to connect to my windows 11 PC?


    The controller connected just fine to my pc for about 6 months and then one day after restarting my pc my controller would say it is connected in settings for about 2 minutes before shutting off and while saying it was connected none of the inputs would register with the game I was playing (Lego Fortnite). Afterward I unpaired the controller from my computer and tried to repair it to no avail, instead it would show up in the menu but when I commanded my pc to connect to the controller it would hang up and the return a message saying, "try connecting your device again." With all future attempts of doing so ending in the same error. I have tried updating the controller firmware as well as the operating system and I even uninstalled all Bluetooth drivers and reinstalling them with no luck.

    :)

    Why does my Xbox elite controller series 2 refuses to connect to my windows 11 PC?

    Hi there! My name is Darhyl and I’d be more than happy to help you with your query.

    I'm sorry you are experiencing this with your Xbox Elite series 2 controller.

    I understand that you have already exhausted all the workarounds such as updating your controller's firmware. Kindly try to connect your controller to a different PC or console device to see if it works.

    If the issue persists, I'm afraid you will need to check your free warranty replacement order for your Xbox Elite Series 2 controller through this link:

    https://support.xbox.com/en-US/help/hardware-network/controller/controller-warranty

    If your controller is no longer covered by warranty, you can also check the out-of-warranty replacement options using the same link above.

    Thank you for your kindness and understanding! Please feel free to let me know if you need anything else.

    Best Regards,
    Darhyl

    Elite Controller Series 2 - Windows 11 - Controller won't connect to Bluetooth as Elite Controller

    Would someone be able to assist me with my current issue?

    I recently bought the series elite 2 controller and I cant seem to connect the controller directly to my pc with the cable to configure the buttons. I am able to connect it via Bluetooth. I have windows 11 and it has been updated to the latest software and I just downloaded the xbox accessories app. When the app is opened it fails to recognize my controller.

    Thank you in advance.

    Xbox Elite Controller 2 will not connect VIA usb or Bluetooth to my pc

    The original XBox Elite controller requires the Xbox Wireless Adapter for Windows 10 so without that adapter it will not be recognized properly by Windows. The newer, Elite Series 2 can connect to a Windows 10 PC without the need of an adapter.

    Cannot configure xbox elite series 2 in Accessories app

    • To configure the Xbox Elite Wireless Controller Series 2, get the Windows 10 May 2019 Update (or later) and make sure your PC has the latest fixes.

      See how to get updates
      .
    • The Xbox Accessories app won’t detect your controller if you’re using Bluetooth to connect to your PC. Connect your controller using Xbox Wireless, or plug the included USB-C cable into the back of the Xbox Elite Wireless Controller Series 2 and plug the
      other end into your PC. For more info, see
      How to connect an Xbox One Wireless Controller to a Windows PC
