Try blowing it down with a hair dryer or shaking it out ad gently use a cloth cause something might be sticking to it or inside. (Trust me because the same thing happens with my computer mouse and keyboard). O and it also might be a technology error so maybe reset the device.
If by "Doesn't connect to the PC" you mean won't play games, it's because only new games can use the 360 controllers as it doesn't use the DirectX input, but uses XInput instead.
There are supposed to be solutions, sometimes through updates for the games (an example in reverse was an update for GTAIV, which allowed the use of the older DirectX joypads.) I've also seen software (switchblade) that allows various pads to work with RPGs. Not too sure if that would be suitable for you though.
Since I have both types of controller (both X360 and a Saitek Pad) I've never had to resort to any other fixes.
See if any xbox controllers will connect to your 360. If you can't get any to connect to your xbox 360 then that means you have a bad controller board. If you can get other controllers to connect then that means you need to configure your xbox to accept that xbox controller.
To connect the controller to your Xbox 360 console, follow these steps:
Press and hold the Xbox Guide button until the controller turns on. The Xbox Guide button is the round button with the green "X" near the center of the controller.
Make sure that your Xbox 360 console is turned on. If your Xbox 360
console is not turned on, press the power button. The power button is
the large round button on your Xbox 360 console.
On the Xbox 360 console, press and release the Connect button. The Connect button is the small round button on the Xbox 360 console.
On the controller, press and release the Connect button. The Connect button is the small button on the front edge of the controller, between the left bumper button and the charging port.
After the Ring of Light spins and flashes one time on the
controller and on the console, the controller is connected. The
quadrant on the Ring of Light that remains lit indicates the position
in which the controller is connected.
