I am trying to use a XBOX wired controller on an Alienware X51 R2 running Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium Service Pack 1 64 bit and the controller is not being recognized. 

I've tried downloading and installing the Xbox360_64Eng.exe driver but it made no difference.

The controller works fine and was automatically recognized by my Dell XPS 17 Windows 7 laptop without any additional drivers.

When Google searching I found another Alienware user with the same problem but they gave up on the XBOX controller and switched to a PS4.

Has anyone else encountered this issue and found a resolution?

There are times you strive for greatness, to reach lofty goals and accomplish

noble deeds. Then there’s the rest of the times you just want to blow stuff up.
