Issue with controller after building PC

Hi!! I've just recently built a gaming PC. Parts below

- Cooler Master Master Watt 750 Watt Semi-Fanless Silencio Fan, Semi-Modular 80 PLUS Bronze Power Supply

- CORSAIR Vengeance LPX 16GB (2 x 8GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 3200 (PC4 25600) Intel XMP 2.0 Desktop Memory Model CMK16GX4M2B3200C16

Fitted them all together. Installed windows from flash drive. Downloaded drivers from here


Everything seems to be working perfectly except when I go to use my Astro C40 controller, it doesn't connect. It shows up in device manager under "other devices". It works fine on my laptop but on my laptop when it's plugged in it shows up under "Xbox 360 Peripherals". It also shows up in the Astro configuration software.

When I plug it into my PC, it shows up in "Other devices" but it will not show up in Astro configuration software. It tells me to connect to a wired connection and then when I do, it just shows a screen saying "Firmware 0.78.0" and nothing happens. I went into device manager, and under "Other devices" it says "Astro C40" with a yellow exclamation mark. When I search automatically for drivers, it doesn't find any. On another thread here it advised if you "browse" for drivers and manually select Xbox 360 Peripherals then it will work but when I do that, still nothing happens.

I feel like I'm missing something simple. If anyone has any advice, I'd really appreciate it!
