Recently I've been trying to connect my PS3 controller to my laptop via USB.
I had it working perfectly using the method in this video.
Problem is shortly afterward my computer crashed in a game (unrelated, battery fell out) and now the controller no longer connects properly. (In fact it wont even turn on when connected to the computer)
I've already tried re-installing drivers, and retrying the steps in the video in order.
I've tried many methods at this, but most others require a bluetooth dongle or just flat don't work at all.
Any ideas on what I need to do to get this working again?

I've been working on this a 3-4 days now, and it's disheartening to have the one method that actually worked, ruined by something so trivial.

Just a thought, have you tried using it with a PS3? It might be that the PC crash left its internal firmware in a bad state and connecting it back to a PS3 might reset it.

The controller never disconnected from the PS3. Though, this is the first time I've used the USB directly connected with the PS3, (Charging battery) since the attempt on PC.

I'll update if things start working again. For now I have a possibly serious hand injury and wont be working on the computer much for a while.
