I would start by trying to load the most recent drivers for the controller, if there is a driver

Next, I would go to device manager and remove all of my USB devices, then reboot...windows will reinstall them on reboot

If that fails, I would not be even a little surprised if the controller was dying...those things take a lot of abuse
