I have a game controller that works perfectly fine on one of my PC's. It is recognized by the PC and is able to be tested from the control panel (game controller settings shows it). When I connect the same game controller to my newer PC, however, it is not recognized and the game controller settings show nothing. I have copied the same exact drivers from my older PC and tried restarting it in every way possible but it does not seem to work. The PC does, in fact, play the sound when the controller is connected like normal. The controller does not seem to be recognized in-game but for some odd reason, it is recognized by the HTML5 game controller tester (html5gamepad.com) and shows all input from it. Device manager recognizes the gamer controller and does not show it as an unknown device. Any help in trying to get it working is appreciated. Thanks in advance.

It would help to know what controller it is exactly. The Operating System for your 'older' PC and new PC too. You ever go to the manufacturers site to get any software they may have for your 'new' operating system? They maybe totally different drivers... Copying drivers and actually 'properly installing them' are two different things.
