  1. 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
  2. Sorry this is not really helping your problem But i use this

    http://www.amazon.com/Xbox-360-Wireless-Gaming-Receiver-Windows/dp/B000HZFCT2/ref=dp_cp_ob_e_title_1

    With a wireless controller and I love it can go sit on the couch or accross the room great for projector setup. It does the quick click connect on this dohicky and controller and bam ready to go.

    Thent
  3. 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.

  5. didnt need any program to use mine

  6. 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.

    You have to download/install the Xbox360 Accessories Software to get anything 360 related to work on a PC.
  8. 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

    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.
