My XBOX 360 controller for Windows [Wired] stopped working suddenly!!!

I use it regularly for playing games as having a great addiction to games.One day before while playing Don Bradman Cricket 14 it stopped working suddenly in between the game.It was not having any problem before it.its about 8 months i m using it.

As it stopped working in the game, i tried to unplug and plug it again...it worked back as normal but again after 2 mins it stopped responding again.Again the same happened and so on til now...
it doesn't work more than 2 mins...

The X sign on the controller glows even after it stops responding...

I checked it in control panel and it detects there too...

i even tried joy.cpl , it detected there too but when it stops responding it also don't show any activity in the properties of JOY.CPL

I even tried to update drivers, reinstalling the drivers, disable and enable the HID complimant game controller and usb input devices....

all gone in vain....

and yes when i try to unplug and plug the controller again and again once or twice the quadrant on controller showed on the 2nd quadrant....


So plz help if anyone can as i m not able to play games on my laptop...

  1. Try a friends controller to see if it's just yours?
  2. I had a problem with my Xbox one controller recently. I had to remove it from device manager and reboot before it started working again. Worth a try.
