didnt need to install a driver for my xbox controller on asus P8Z68-V PRO/GEN3

just plugged it in and the driver automatically installed

make sure you are using a rear usb port not a front or top of case one

and use a usb 2.0 port in case your usb 3.0 drivers not installed

Odds are, you have the version of the 360 controller that has the USB recharge kit. That version will NOT connect via USB [the USB is only for charging the controller].

Only the original wired controller will work with a USB connection, the rest have to connect wirelessly using a usb wireless receiver.

In any case, there is a separate program you need to install for the controller to work with a PC.

uninstall the driver run ccleaners reg cleaner then reboot.
1s windows starts just plug in the controler and the correct driver will auto install. if you connected to the web.

have to disagree that the software is necessary to make a wired controller work on a pc--it may give you additional info etc

but i have used my wired controller for years and never even seen or heard of that software before

You have to download/install the Xbox360 Accessories Software to get anything 360 related to work on a PC.

no you dont... it works as soon as it loads the driver. which win 7 does automatically as soon as it detects the controller. you then configure it and calibrate it the same way you would with any other pad in windows.
of you manually download the driver it will often not work as the OP has found out.
