EasySMX 9101 (ESM-9101-EU) not reconnecting after PC power off

  • • EasySMX 9101 (ESM-9101-EU) connects to Windows 10 PC no problem on first install. 2 top red LEDs on. Perfect.

    • After PC RESTART controller reconnects perfectly with single press of middle logo button. 2 top red LEDs on. Perfect.

    • PROBLEM: After PC POWER OFF, then power back on, controller will not reconnect: I press the middle logo button and then all 4 red LEDs flash slowly. I can press all controller buttons but nothing will connect controller to PC.

    • SOLUTION: I have to physically disconnect the USB dongle for 1-2 seconds then plug back in. Once I do this controller reconnects perfectly. 2 top red LEDs on.

    I have tried many solutions to fix this problem:

    • Re-installling Xbox 360 Windows drivers

    • Try different/new controller

    • Disable power management for all USB devices in Device Manager

    • Delete/uninstall all old/unused USB drivers and devices

    The problem seems to be related to the drivers: On first install and after PC restart the device is listed as "GAME FOR WINDOWS" — this is when the controller works/connects perfectly. But after PC power off the device is listed as "PC USB CONTROLLER" — this is when all 4 red LEDs on the controller flash slowly.

    Please help! Thank you

    Hello, Follow the tutorial in the video, turn off the power saving and try again.


  • @EasySMX Thank you for the video, but as I already mentioned in my previous post, I have already tried the Power Management method for USB Root Hub. I unchecked the box and tried again but the controller still does not reconnect when I press the middle logo button.

    Can you tell me what 4 flashing red LEDs means please? They flash slowly; not fast like when trying to connect as normal. And the red LED on the dongle does not flash at this point; it stays solid red as though it has found a connection (no blinking).

    Thank you
