Lightbulb XBOX360 Wireless Controller triggers not working on one pc but are working on another

I hope this will be an easy one for you guys on the forum: I was playing FIFA12 on my laptop with a XBOX360 Wireless Controller (connected with the official microsoft pc reciever) when the trigger buttons suddenly stopped working. I went to the windows controller calibration tool and the little z-axis(the triggers) graph didnt move when i pressed them. When I tried to recalibrate them the tool detected the zaxis movement as i pressed the buttons, but as soon as the calibration proccess was over it wasnt detecting zaxis movement anymore. I then plugged it into another pc and the gamepad worked fine. I tried restoring calibration to default, uninstalling drivers and even running logitech wingman clear calibration utility to try and clear calibration settings, but no luck.

Any ideas?
