I honestly don't know how old this controller is, but I wouldn't be surprised if it's dead. However a couple months ago when I last used it, it was working perfectly fine.
I run Windows XP 64 bit, so my first step was to go to the Cordless Rumblepad 2 download area, select windows 7 as my OS, choose multilingual 64-bit as my download, and install that gaming software. During the installation of the software, it didn't detect my controller, and I havn't been able to get it to detect my controller at all.
On the receiver, the light doesn't flash unless I press a button on my controller. The controller only has a red flashing light when the receiver is not plugged in via USB. When I plug the receiver in via USB, the controller doesn't show any light at all, and the only button that seems to work is the vibration button.
I have tried the 5 + 7 trick and the 6 + 8 trick while replacing a battery, and it does nothing, I have also tried replacing both batteries with brand new batteries to no avail.
So I guess my question is, is my controller/receiver dead, is there another way to fix this, or did I do something wrong when choosing the installation software?
Thanks for your time!

If you selected Windows 7 as your operating system, but your operating system is actually Windows XP X64, this could cause issues.
Please remove the Logitech Gaming Software, reboot and install http://www.logitech.com/en-us/441/287?softwareid=6
