So I've been using a 360 controller with my PC for quite some time without any issues. I decided to go with the new XBOX One adapter and I really enjoy using the X1 controller more than the 360. Here's the problem. For some reason and it's always random too, my PC freezes up and starts beeping at me and then I have to reboot. Sometimes it even says overclocking failed during startup and makes me go into bios. This ONLY happens when the Xbox one controller is being used. Never happens with my 360 controller. And that's with hours and hours of gaming. I can try for 15 minutes with the X1 controller and then it freezes. Does anyone know why it does this and if it's a known problem???? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

FYI, I have the latest driver installed and I've even taken the other dongle back and exchanged just in case there was a problem with it.

Uninstall/reinstall drivers? Try a different USB port?

I have the same issue, except it's doing it now after going back to the old 360 adapter. I'm going to reinstall windows and my games and stick to 360 for now. Definitely going to send my Xbox One adapter in for warranty replacement as well because in the end I want to use the new controller.

I'll let you know if I have any luck but it'll be a few days, being lazy since it's doing it less often while using 360 adapter.

Mine does this too, and it only happens when the controller disconnects while I have Uplay up. Are you using Uplay?

I'm running Windows 64 but I don't know how to check what drivers I have for my Xbox One controller. It automatically recognized the device and I can't find it under device manager. Also, this happens with Steam as well. It happened while I was playing the new doom:-(

Beeping?

I had this issue where my computer would start beeping and get really laggy whenever I tried to click with the mouse, and I'd have to unplug the computer and restart it because everything froze up.

I followed this and now it's fixed, supposedly it is an Xbox One controller driver bug.
