Having problems with your Microsoft Xbox 360 Controller ?

Xbox controller just keeps blinking

\015 I bought a Microsoft Xbox for Windows controller yesterday. This is the hand controller that's linked wirelessly to a received plugged into a USB slot on my PC. I'm using Windows XP Service Pack 2. Hooked it all up and worked beautifully for the rest of the evening. Went to fire it up today but the green light just keeps blinking. Have uninstalled and reinstalled, tried new batteries, but nothing seems to work. It just sits there constantly blinking at me. Is not recognised by the PC as being connected and the Status Box thingy does not recognise Drive E (which I assume is the controller device).\015\012Cheers,\015\012Russ\015
