I have 2 Xbox Wireless gamepads, which I use with USB cables (I don't have the receivers at the moment). Everything was working fine until now. Didn't use them for a few weeks and now the PC just does not react in any manner to connecting them.

The only thing that happens is a controller vibrates when connected, but even the white lamp in the middle does not light up at all. There is no device connected/disconnected sound when I plug any of them in any port and I could not find them being detected as anything in the device manager either.

Struggling for a couple days now -- I don't even have an entry point to fix the problem since the system just ignores the existence of the controllers. The controllers work well on another PC.

Try downloading the 'Xbox Accessoires' app from the windows store. after the installation, open the program and connect your controllers. See if it does anything
