Xbox 360 controller for pc

Hi guys,

I have this problem with connecting my xbox 360 wireless controller to my windows 8.1 computer.
I don't have any wireless receivers for my controller but I do have cable to connect it to my computer (from the charger kit).
Also I have installed both the drivers for wireless and wired controllers. My computer does find the controller and recognizes is it
but it won't show it in any of the games. I can't use it this way. I have followed the instructions on the sites of Microsoft and Xbox
but I can't make it work.

Does anyone know what the problem can be?

With kind regards
