I have this generic gamepad controller Ipega PG-9068 connected to a Windows 10 PC. The device was detected and functioning normally via Bluetooth. After disconnecting and reconnecting it, the gamepad 'flag' is not applying to the device again.

It is not a device issue. It works normally in another PC.

No driver is provided by the manufacturer. It is plug and play, no driver needed.

So, although the device gets connected via Bluetooth and recognized, the calibration button won't be enabled.

The computer has already been restarted, the Bluetooth device has already been removed and added again. No "update drivers" applies here because it is a generic device that works on any other computer.

Now, how can I get Windows to recognize it as a gamepad again and allow it to be calibrated?


  • Windows 10 v1809 build 17763.864

  • Only 1 Bluetooth device

  • What version of Windows 10 are you running? What type of BT adapter are you using? Do you have multiple BT devices connected to your machine. Please edit your question to include this vital information. – Ramhound Jul 10 at 15:51
  • Did you try the "Reset to default" button followed by click on OK? – harrymc Jul 12 at 15:43
  • @harrymc yes I did. – Azevedo Jul 12 at 16:25
  • “USB 3.0 Bluetooth dongle 4.0” - Please be more descriptive. Is there a reason you are still running 1809? – Ramhound Jul 12 at 16:35
  • If this happened recently and System Restore is enabled, you can rollback the state of Windows to a point in time when the gamepad worked correctly. – harrymc Jul 12 at 17:53

Any time that I had issues with that button it was because i had to force a correct driver to explain to the computer where the throttle/axis where.

Or I had to install a gamepad wrapper.

A program that would trick windows to thinking it was an xbox controller.
