Just died in the middle of a game, I've tried changing batteries, using a USB cable and re-syncing to no avail. Does anyone have any suggestions?

    I would buy that elite controller pretty sure you can use it on the pc too.

    I will look into that but atm I'm trying to get it working so I'm not forced to buy a new one, it's completely unresponsive.

    You can use the normal Xbox one controller on pc too.

    Only on windows 10 and you need one of their own adapters, con artists

    I use mine on Windows 8 without an adapter, just need to download a driver free of charge from their site.

    I've heard good things about it, would second that.

    More sturdier than the regular controller, close to XB 360 quality atleast what i have been told!

    Can you open it? Do you have the correct tools?

    It's a long shot but if you got it apart you might see something obvious.

    No power makes me think something has unplugged.

    Did you chuck it. Or did it just stop working?

    If it appears to be dead and isn't under warranty, may as well crack it open and see what's what ;)

    GL man!

    It just stopped working mate,I thought it was the batteries that had gone at first.

    Okay guys looks like I'm going have to open it up and take a look. I'm going to have a watch of some YouTube videos first then I'll bring you an update!

    Ive got one and it's brilliant. Got it when first released so got it for RRP, wouldn't pay £170 for it like you'll have to now though to get one.
