    Go to your Device Manager and then to your Human Interface Devices section before plugging in your PS3 controller. Then plug in your PS3 controller and you will see "HID-compliant game controller" and "HID-compliant wireless radio controls" be updated to your Human Interface Devices section. Right click and disable "HID-compliant game controller" then unplug and replug in your PS3 controller and it should charge fine.
    Thanks, that worked for me! Although I didn't see "HID-compliant wireless radio controls" in my device manager.

    And also thanks to the thread starter: I never realised that my controller only stopped charging after upgrading to Win 8.1.
