I alslo assume that this should fix the 'driver error' popping up from the Bluetooth wireless controller device. If your controller is disconnecting after trying to pair via Bluetooth, try the following: Reset your computer or shut down and make sure the controller has adequate charge (anything above 10% should do.). The Xbox One S Bluetooth controller doesn’t work with Steam Link, yet. The problem is that the Steam Link will need specific Bluetooth drivers to get the Xbox One S controller to function.


I try to connect my XBox One S Controller to PC via Bluetooth. I can see a controller named 'Gamecontroller', sometimes it has the name 'Xbox Wireless Controller'. When I try to pair now I have to enter a pair code or something. When I leave it blank and just press OK it seems to install the driver or something and then is 'connected'. But my controller's XBox button is still blinking and I cannot use it. Any ideas?

I have three recommendations to solve your problems.

  • Connect and troubleshoot Bluetooth on your Xbox One Wireless Controller Xbox One Wireless Controllers may support connecting to your PC via Bluetooth. Your controller has this feature if it looks like the one on the bottom in this illustration.
  • (Xbox one controller) One day the controller. If so, hold the Xbox button for a few seconds, and it should pop up in the Bluetooth menu. So long as there is nothing beneath the name like 'Driver Error' or anything, you are.

Since it is one of the features of the new Xbox One S controller to be able to connect wirelessly to your pc, I suggest you

  • restart your controller by pressing and holding the home button for 6 seconds
  • remove the controller from your pc devices. Go to Settings > Devices > Bluetooth. Then you can select the controller and then select 'Remove device.'

  • then follow the steps in this video Use Bluetooth to connect your Xbox One controller


The alternative & best way to connect a Xbox One controller to your PC is to buy this:

It doesn't cost much, you can get for less than $20 on Amazon, and trust me my friend when I tell you it will make your life easier. You simply plug it in the USB port of your pc and connect your controller wirelessly. Magic! Also it supports up to 8 controllers simultaneously as well as 4 chat headsets and 2 stereo headsets, so it's definitely worth it in my opinion!


If you need to use the controller urgently and the first solution did't work, just use a micro usb cable to play temporarily until you get the problem fixed.It looks like this:

I think I found a solution. My wife had the same problem after the firmware update, so I fixed it that way:

  • Plug the controller by USB on the PC
  • Uninstall the driver of the contriller in the 'device manager'
  • Unplug the controller and turn it off
  • Turn it on again and pared it by bluetooth again

After these steps, it should work.


Are you using Windows 10? You may need to update the controllers firmware to establish a proper connection. You can do this either by connecting the controller to your Xbox One while connected to the internet, or connect it to your PC with a micro USB cord. See this link for updating the firmware through a PC.

To pair the controller, hold the sync button on the top-left of the controller while you search for new bluetooth devices on your PC. It should appear as 'Xbox One wireless controller for Windows' as you stated.

If you still have issues connecting your controller, you can also use the Moga Serial to Windows Interface tool to use the controller as an XInput HID. Be certain to use the Xinput option with the utility.
