    Xbox Wireless Controller Adapter not turning on?

    Hi and thanks for reaching out! I'm an Independent Advisor and a Microsoft user like you. Please allow me to assist with your issue.

    Try connecting the controller using a Micro-USB cable to the computer. This will no longer require the wireless controller adapter.

    If the controller is working, then it is the wireless adapter that is not functioning. You may try testing it with another computer. If it doesn't work with another computer as well, your wireless adapter for the controller is faulty and should be replaced.

    Please let me know if I can help you further!

    Xbox One Wireless Adapter for Windows 10 disconnects after 7 seconds

    The wireless adapter has a limited range. If you are using a desktop computer use the USB extender to get the wireless adapter as close to your controller as possible.
