    Is it an official controller made by MS or is it a copy made by another company? It has been reported that such off brand controllers will no longer work in Windows 10.

    Nice. Doesn't help me at all, but like I said it works for a lot of people. It also doesn't work for a lot of people.

    I really think it has something to do with my Windows 10 install. Don't know why, it's just the only thing I can think of. In a week I should have the replacement PC, I'll install the Xbox 360 disk and then I'll plug it in, see what happens.

    Yours is a Microsoft Product as some were not here i saw ? Microsoft Windows 8.1 always had the drivers and no need for disc and Windows 10 is same. Was not sure if mentioned by Dch48 if this is true about non-microsoft items, if so maybe the issue.
    Does other USB devices work fine ? Considering thinking it was Windows install.

    What I said is part of the new Windows 10 feature that is supposed to reject non genuine things, whether software or hardware. It has been reported before that the 3rd party controllers stopped working in Win 10 but that the real MS ones were okay. I have a MS wired USB Xbox 360 for Windows controller and it works fine. I didn't have to install any drivers either. It just looks like a standard Xbox controller with a dongle that adapts it to USB.

    It only figures that the first things affected by the new "feature" would be their own products.

    Is it a wireless controller with a detachable cord? If so, you might only have a charging cable and not a data cable.

    When windows reports that device descriptor failed, it means that the GND and V+ lines are properly connected. The D+ and/or D- lines are either not connected or are connected to GND.
