  1. Xbox 360 controller for Windows 8.1


    Alright please help me out here,

    I have windows 8.1

    I have an HP Pavilion g7 notebook

    I installed the drivers on the Xbox site for Windows 8. To play on windows 8 I had to install Windows 7 for 64 bit. But then I had to right click the set up I downloaded... Properties... Click the Checkbox "Compatible with" then Windows 7. I double clicked
    set up.. agreed to terms of service. Restarted my computer..

    It would be plugged in prior or not plugged in cus I did it so many times. All it would do is BLINK. I tried different ports, different controllers. I tried the Hardware and Device thingy once, I have installed and reinstalled doing the same thing over and
    over again... with no luck

    On my device manager.. its on its own section of Xbox 360 Peripherals. Then i hit the down arrow beside it, below it lists "Xbox 360 Wireless Controller via Play and Charge kit" The device works properly so I am completely lost.... please help

    :)

    The Play and Charge kit doesn't allow a wireless controller to connect to a PC as a game pad. You'll need the wireless gaming receiver for a wireless controller to connect.

  6. Not via a play and charge kit. The play and charge kit simply charges the gamepad it doesn't turn it into a wired controller.
