Xbox 360 Controller not working?

I have just recently bought myself a HP ENVY DV6 laptop, and a wireless Xbox360 controller. The controller is made by Microsoft so it isn't a cheap 3rd party ripoff. I went to play Oblivion and about 1/2 of the buttons weren't working, including the z-axis. I went to the game controller settings and the buttons all seemed to work fine, but the z-axis was still not working. The laptop is installed with windows 8 (it came with the laptop so there wasn't ever win 7 to start with), and I've heard that heaps of other people are experiencing the same problems with Win 8.

  1. If you heard that heaps of other people are experiencing the same problem, then I guess there's not much you can do except wait for updates to the controller drivers, for Win 8.
  2. So Windows 8 has botched the proprietary Xbox controller drivers? Write an email letting them know and they should patch it relatively quickly.
