  1. Tony says:


    it will not work on a laptop. For a desktop, you could buy a special card that would allow you to do that but not on a laptop

  2. Vincent says:

    plug it in. It is a USB port isn’t it? It may require a driver to work on your laptop.

  3. Justin Reyes says:

    Yes, you need the Xbox 360 Wireless Adapter for Windows. It cost around $ 20.

    Otherwise another option (and in my opinion a much-better option) is to buy the wired Xbox 360 Controller instead for the same price. Windows Vista and Windows already have pre-installed drivers for the Xbox 360 Controller (Wired version) but not sure about Windows XP yet.

    Need help?

    If it’s a wired USB controller, all you have to do is plug it in to a USB slot on your computer and it’ll register.
