Welcome to FixYa,

You must have Windows XP Service Pack 2 or Higher to install the controller. It is a requirement that is located on the package. If you do not meet these requirements , the driver will not install.

If you indeed meet this requirement and still cannot get it to install, allow it to connect to Windows Update and search for a driver.

On a side note, when you bought the controller, the documentation tells you to install the software first, and then plug in the controller driver.

You can grab the latest controller driver software from here:

My controller keeps making me head backwards


Sounds like a calibration issue. It can also be a hardware problem in which case you will be better off buying a new controller. You haven't clearly mentioned exactly what brand your controller is. Is it Logitech or Microsoft brand? It is for PC or XBOX?

If its Microsoft brand and for PC you can try calibrating it from Control Panel -> Game Controllers -> XNA Gamepad -> Properties -> Settings -> Calibrate.
