@ZeeHero9271 said in My controller is suddenly not working:
There is only one slot as far as my PC is concerned. and it quit working and will not work again.
All Windwos 10 and now 11 PCs have 4 controller slots controlled by the system. When a controller is unplugged for even a fraction of a second and the PC no longer detects it, it moves it up a slot since it thinks it is a new controller when it re-detects it. When it reaches all 4 slots used, any time a new controller is detected it replaces Slot 4. There is no way to manually change this in Windows 10 or 11. The system also detects the keyboard or mouse as a controller in Slot 1 if the Controller isn't plugged in when you first start the computer. This is a problem that Microsoft as still yet to fix since the release of Windows 10. The only way to fix it is to return to the screen where you log into Windows, unplug and plug the controller back in, then log back into your user profile.
