Controller issues

Soo, I love Forza, but I’m having huge issues with my control pad and steering wheel atm, in that, when playing, I the Xbox button doesn’t work, and when I try to save a picture or decal set up (or any time the keyboard appears) the game seems to freeze, and won’t do anything unless I hard reset and start the game again. I didn’t really this until I was trying to save a finished decal set up I’d spent well over and hour on, and the game died on me. Help? It’s the first time it’s happened, but it’s really getting on my nerves
