Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Controller
If this is for your console:
*Solution* - It means your controller isn't synced with your console. At the top of your controller, there is a little sync button with waves next to it inbetween the two bumpers. Press that button once, then go to your console and press the similar button located on the front of it right next to Memory Slot B. You'll see the green light run circles around the main button for a second until they recognize each other, blink a couple of times and then you'll see the green light in the top left quadrant of the controller and the console.
If this is for the PC:
*Solution* - It could be in relation to a driver issue, power issue or both. First try unplugging any other USB devices you have to your machine besides the 360 controller. The wireless dongle used to connect to the controller uses a lot of onboard power. If unplugging everything but the controller get's the controller to sync, you might have to consider getting an upgraded power supply unit if you have a desktop or just getting a wired controller.
If that doesn't fix it, you can try uninstalling the current controller drivers you have on your system, downloading and installing the new drivers from Microsoft's web-site and try syncing again.
