You can find Windows drivers for your PS3 controller HERE. Read and follow the instructions available. These drivers even support wireless bluetooth connectivity which you can setup if your laptop has bluetooth. The developer of the driver includes a full tutorial on installing and configuring the PS3 controller.
connect your controller to the PS3 with the controller charger cable (not original, nor pairing, only charging), then turn on the ps3 followed by controller (had a using controller on and assigned controller one , automatically)
i used a pencil, and while all lights blinking, poked the small hole near front, L2, and on back
Turn your ps3 on and plug in your controller with the usb cable provided with the ps3 and then press the ps button while it is plugged in and it will connect. Then unplug the controller and it should wirelessly connect.
push the select and L3 buttons at the same time after you push the connect button on the little mechanism, it should flash fast then press the home button to register it., make sure you follow the directions exactly. console must be off and the mechanism must be plugged in to port 1, turn on click the connect button then L3 and select at the same time then home button. the thing is garbage though the control are unresponsive. Took forever before i could get it to register.
