Since Microsoft or its forums won't answer me, I decided to try here.
I have one of those 360 Wireless Controller thingies for my PC. I can get it to connect just fine on all XP computers, but no such luck with my Vista. I even downloaded the Vista-specific drivers! Once in a blue moon, the controller will work, but as soon as I restart my computer, it stops working again! Anyone know how to solve this?
Have you tried to mate the 360 controller and the wireless receiver in vista. Otherwise, I would say remove the wireless receiver, uninstall the drivers, reboot, install the latest drivers 32bit here
and 64bit here
, reboot if asked, then
plug in your receiver. After it's detected, turn on your 360 controller and mate the controller and receiver.
