Has your Xbox 360 Wireless Receiver for Windows given up the ghost? Does your PC completely ignore the hardware when you connect it, not even detecting the device as an “unknown” piece of hardware? If so, then a small internal fuse has probably blown. This is a design fault with the Xbox 360 Wireless Receiver but it is easily corrected. Simply send the unit to us and we’ll repair it for just £6 plus return shipping, way cheaper than replacing it with another genuine unit.
Please note this repair is for the genuine Microsoft Xbox 360 Wireless Receiver for Windows only, and only for the fault where the receiver is not detected at all by Windows. If your receiver is detected by Windows but is shown as an “Unknown device” or you cannot pair controllers to your unit, that’s a different fault and likely due to a problem on your PC.
