I have a Dell vostro 1220. I recently upgraded from XP 32 to 7 64. Everything is working fine except the bluetooth adapter. The drivers are installed, it appears in the device manager but not in Control Panel > Network and Internet. I've tried different bluetooth stack software but the problem seams to be with the hardware. It just won't switch on.

I did some hardware upgrades as well more ram and HDD to SSD, all working fine. OS install went well, back up was fine. I'm out of ideas other than I broke it when opening up the laptop. I hope this isn't the case.

Suggestions?

In May, I bought a pair of bluetooth headphones (Photive BTH3) and a USB bluetooth wireless adapter (SoundBot SB340) for my work PC.
 
Last week, my computer got a bug, and IT reformatted the computer.
Now my headphones are not pairing with the computer properly.
I used the CD that came with the USB adapter, and it seems to work, but when I pair the headphones with the computer, the drivers start to install, and I get this error:
 

 
I got this right before it, and thought it was all going well

 
I can not pair my headphones with the computer, and get this pop-up:

hi, first poster here,
im using a laptop with built in wireless adapter and it connects to my router but the connection appears to be very weak because i often get disconnects and the taskbar shows me having only one or two bars(im using windows 7). My roommate's laptop connects to it with max bars. So, i got my old usb adapter, which works fine on my desktop(i tested it), and it cant make the laptop use the adapter instead of the built in wireless adapter. I have tried disabling the built in adapter and it just tells me that i cannot connect to the internet. The usb adapter is enabled but it has a red X on the side of the picture. Im pretty lost as what to do in this situation.

Hi chaps, i recently bought a wifi adapter capable of 300mbps, as apposed to my old 54mbps adapter, and an active 10m extension.

now the extension does power the adapter, but the cpu doesnt seem to recognize the adapter is plugged in, but if i plug the adapter straight into the computer then it all works fine.

other people seem to have no problem at all doing this to achieve better signal.

am i missing something?....here is the lead i bought.

Hello I have an issue with my Medialink USB Bluetooth Adapter Bluetooth LIT Adapter's USB Is Bluetooth OFF? Light IS When Blue - Version Class Smart Ready Adapter Model No MUA-BA Let me explain Okay I have setup my Medialink USB Bluetooth Adapter with the drivers for my Windows operating system USB Bluetooth Adapter's Blue Light IS LIT When Bluetooth Is OFF? Now when I plug this USB Bluetooth adapter into my USB port connector on my desktop computer it automatically lights up with a blue light on the Medialink USB Bluetooth Adapter itself and on my Windows system tray notification area I get the Bluetooth icon displayed as ON Then I go ahead and pair the computer and my device s example a Smartphone to connect which they do successfully When I am done using the Bluetooth technology I disconnect the Bluetooth connection from each device and then instead of leaving your USB Bluetooth adapter ON with my Windows operating system I go into my Windows system tray notification area and select Turn Adapter OFF I then get the red Bluetooth icon in my Windows system tray notification area demonstrating that my Bluetooth is indeed OFF and the Bluetooth blue light on the Medialink USB Bluetooth Adapter goes OFF or is not lit any longer Okay so far so good everything is normal However when I shutdown my Windows operating system and then restart the computer at some later point I notice that the Medialink USB Bluetooth Adapter still shows on my Windows system tray notification area as OFF okay normal BUT THE BLUE LIGHT ON THE MEDIA LINK USB BLUETOOTH ADAPTER IS NOW ON The only way I can turn off the blue light on the USB Bluetooth adapter is to manually go through the Windows system tray notification area turn ON the Bluetooth technology and then promptly turn back OFF the Bluetooth technology in order for the Medialink USB Bluetooth Adapter s blue light to go OFF again I find this to be a real pain and chore each time to have to go through these manual steps to turn OFF that Medialink USB Bluetooth Adapter s blue light when the Medialink USB Bluetooth Adapter s blue light SHOULD BE OFF TO BEGIN WITH I would assume after the system re- start and leaving the Medialink USB Bluetooth Adapter plugged into the USB port connector on my desktop computer if the Bluetooth technology is indeed OFF as set with the Windows operating system settings then the Medialink USB Bluetooth Adapter s blue light should be OFF as well BUT IT IS NOT I have no intention of consistently plugging in and out the Medialink USB Bluetooth Adapter when I plan on using it or not but instead leaving the Medialink USB Bluetooth Adapter always plugged into the my USB port connector on my desktop computer at all times and using the Windows system tray notification area s Bluetooth icon to turn ON and OFF the Bluetooth technology when needed I have contacted Medialink Mediabridge and they have informed me the rationale for this issue quot The only reason the light would be lit is if the bus power from that USB port was running I they looked for ways to manage the bus power settings of the USB host but was unable to find anywhere in the Control Panel that would allow you to adjust that particular setting quot Makes perfect sense to me that the bus power for the USB port is ALWAYS RUNNING and the computer starts the USB ports are powered and therefore the Medialink USB Bluetooth Adapter is always lit at system start until I turn off the Medialink USB Bluetooth Adapter via Window 's system tray notification area Specifically the Medialink USB Bluetooth Adapter is connected to one of the USB ports on the front of my desktop computer The front desktop USB port connects to one of the USB pin connectors on my ASUS P Q motherboard Further I have an OLDER ASUS P Q motherboard that does NOT support Bluetooth as part of its BIOS settings -- PRE-Bluetooth capability Therefore I installed the software on my Windows Professional -bit and drivers that came with my Medialink USB Bluetooth Adapt...

So I had this Bluetooth mouse that I only used occasionally. After installing Windows 8, I tried turning it on only to find that it was wasn't functioning. So, naturally I thought of pairing it once more. Unfortunately, the god damn thing just wont show up! I have a feeling it's because I had that mouse as an active device when I was on Windows 7. Anyway to get this to show.

I have a feeling completely removing any traces of the mouse might get it to work again. But I don't know how to do that. I removed it from Device Manager's Bluetooth Devices' section but that didn't do the trick. Furthermore, the Mouse Settings' Bluetooth Tab still lists my mouse as a functioning device although it doesn't show up in the Control Panel's Bluetooth Device list.

PS: The Mouse has no issues. It works fine on my Friends system on Windows 8.

A:My Bluetooth Mouse wont Pair... Heck it wont even show up!

Hi,

Update Bluetooth drivers to latest, and then also the mouse drivers to latest.

If this is a Razer device as your screen name alludes to, be prepared for the possibility of multiple bsods a day. Razer is good for that, for sure. Maybe you'll luck out and they've actually fixed their drivers by now instead of putting fake dates on their webpage that make it look like ancient drivers are new.

Bluetooth is the easiest (read "least hassle") way of transferring data to your netbook from an Android device. I got a "nano" Bluetooth adapter for my Toshiba laptop, it worked nicely. It sticks out approximately 3/8" (7mm) and was under 10 USD.

If you don't want to go that route, then you can use sync software. I use My Phone Explorer (free). Once you have it set up, you can access your Android device as if it were a networked PC on your home LAN.

Another alternative is to use a USB cable. Set your Android device to Disk Drive under Connect to PC. I'm not 100% sure, but I think that this allows access to data on the SD Card only. Not a problem on my phone as it saves pictures and videos to a folder on the SD Card.

It connects your PC to any other device that is Bluetooth enabled.

That service error message on selecting Turn On discovery is more than likely a driver issue for the adapator.
Is there a warning on device manager for the Belkin.

Hi all,

I recently encounter problem of sending files via bluetooth. I cannot send files using send to> bluetooth option by right clicking on the files.

In addition, I also encounter problem expanding the youtube description when I clicked on "See more".

I have also attached a pdf document that shows the problem that I have encounter.

Thanks in advance.

A:Problem with bluetooth adapter

Welcome Bluking.

First thing to try, I suggest you hold the left shift key down and right click on a file, then check the Sent To menu to see if there is a Bluetooth option.

---

Very quickly, check the send to folder to see if there is a Bluetooth shortcut.

To do this, click the start globe/button and input the following line into that little search box at the bottom of the menu - replacing the word USER with your username.

C:\Users\USER\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\SendTo

E.g., if my username was Seb9, I would put:

C:\Users\Seb9\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\SendTo

Tap the enter key and a new window should open, with shortcuts in it.

---

If you do not see a Bluetooth one and you have bluetooth software installed, I suggest you run a repair on the installation, just as an idea.

To do this, you'll need to go to your control panel, go to "Uninstall a program", find the bluetooth software and click repair (or uninstall and reinstall).

---

Another idea is to check the Bluetooth settings for a setting to create a shortcut in the sent to folder.

____

With your YouTube issue, hopefully closing and reopening the browser and/or system restart should fix that one.

I just got a Palm Centro and conveniently (not really) the usb cable to connect to my phone to computer isn't compatable with 64 bit systems. So I was informed that I should simply buy a Bluetooth adapter to "hotsync" my phone..blah blah blah.

after buying the bluetooth I realized that my computer was not recognizing the new hardware b/c IT isn't compatable with,..you guessed it...64 bit os...and then they say I have to buy another one. Now, I guess this seems like more complaining than a question, but my level of frustration is immense, so I apologize, but does anyone know a way to fix this issue short of the obvious(buying another flippin adapter)? I mean, is Kensington so cheap and lazy that they cannot get their "experts" to write a patch or update for patrons with a 64 bit system?
 

A:Bluetooth adapter blues

A cable wouldn't have anything to do with 64-bit compatibility. That lies with the device, not the connection method. If the phone doesn't support connectivity with a 64-bit OS, a Bluetooth adapter isn't going to make a difference.

I don't think it is windows 7. I have a phone and a mouse paired to a Bluetooth stick with Broadcom drivers. They paired at first attempt. There is usually a button on the base of a mouse that you have to press to make it discoverable. I don't know about a keyboard though, I have never used one. There is also a checkbox on the options tab of the Bluetooth settings dialog to make the computer discoverable.

I never changed the default network card ever since I bought the pc, and I always used a dongle to use Bluetooth, but now I recently found out that my networkcard also has bluetooth. So, to my understanding, I shouldn't need the dongle at all.Although here's the thing. Ever since I bought it I have found no option to turn the bluetooth on, other than the dongle settings of course. And whats even weider (at least to me), that in the adapter settings it is called 'Ethernet 2', as shown here:The second line says: 'Networkcable not connected' Is this how it should be? My device manager shows the PAN Network Adapter, and it says it has drivers installed, so I don't know what I would be doing wrong. Laptop is out of warranty, so sending it to HP is not really an option.

I have a mac 2013(early) running win10 (obviously). I have my TV with a auxiliary port. I want to know if it is possible to use some software to turn my laptop into an adapter between my Bluetooth headphones and the TV. I have heard that if the volume is too loud from the TV going into a auxiliary port, it could fry something. I feel like this is something that could be doable, and software exists. But I cannot find any, and I really want to use my Bluetooth headphones so no one can hear my TV when playing games and such.

A:software to turn mac into bluetooth adapter?

If you are using the tv as an external monitor as well as for watching broadcasts you would simply mute that if not Bluetooth capable and then use either the head phone jack on the laptop itself or see the Bluetooth app configure the head set there not through the tv. Does the headset happen to have a usb dongle by chance?

On a quick Bing search for looking a guide for seeing Bluetooth installed on 10 you will also find instructions on how to see Bluetooth already present and accounted for enabled on 10 rather easily. The following was quickly found from the Help From Microsoft pages in the Bing search results itself with an embedded video short.








To connect your Bluetooth headset, speaker, or headphones to your Windows 10 PC, you'll need to pair the device first.


Turn on your Bluetooth device and make it discoverable. The way you make it discoverable depends on the device. Check the device info or website to find out more.On the taskbar, select the action center icon, and make sure Bluetooth is turned on.In action center, select Connect, then pick your device.Follow any additional instructions. Otherwise, you're done.

A:Bluetooth problem, can't install adapter

Hi
 
Do you have a driver install disk for the adapter ? . 
 
Some old Bluetooth drivers are not compatible with Windows 7 64 bit. So make sure the driver disk do have the right driver for your OS.

A:USB Speaker & USB Bluetooth Adapter Not Working

Connect the devices, one at a time. Then go to the Device Manager and display the USB section. There will probably be an Unknown device shown. If there is, RIGHT click on the entry to highlight it and then LEFT click "Uninstall" (do not uninstall any drivers). Disconnect the device from the PC after the Uninstall. Then do the same thing for the other USB device. Restart the PC and then connect one of the devices and Windows should detect it as "new hardware" and install it. If not, run sfc /scannow (run it 3 times) and see if it finds any problem from whatever you may have deleted.

I used to use my Turtle Beach PX5s with my laptop. They used to work just fine. I reconnected them to the PS3 one day and after going back to the PC the microphone no longer registers sound on the PC.

Everything is as it should be. All drivers have been reinstalled multiple times, all settings have been checked and double checked. Nothing stands out as abnormal except the sound meter next to the bluetooth headset under audio devices (where it is set as default device) does not register any noise.

The headset is working fine with the ps3 and my phone and I can hear my voice through the headset as I talk, but the PC cannot hear me at all.

I have been through Turtle Beach tech support and Targus tech support and have gotten nowhere. It's been incredibly aggravating and I hope some one here might be able to shed some light.

Thanks,

Okay, so recently my Bluetooth adapter stopped receiving signals, at least form what I can tell. According to the operating system everything is working fine, all the drivers are installed etc. but when I try to connect my Bluetooth mouse it never picks up the signal for it, or my phone. The oddest part is it's only in Windows 7 it all works fine and dandy in XP.

Hi,

I have previously bought a Dell XPS15 in may 2016 but had to return it due to faulty Bluetooth adapter. I did really liked the laptop though. I planned to purchase another one but it seems the issue is not resolved yet as there are lots of complaints about it! Is there any update on this?

What issues were you having with Bluetooth? I got my 9550 last December and had one Bluetooth issue with it. I am using a Bluetooth keyboard. A couple of months ago the keyboard was suddenly dropped and I had trouble getting it recognized again. Eventually I had to re-pair it and it has worked well ever since.

As the title would suggest, I have a Rocketfish Micro-usb bluetooth adapter. I'm having real issues with my Windows 7 Ultimate x64.

My Problems are:

- The Bluetooth device installs correctly but cannot find any devices
- Searching will go on forever and I have tried over 12 different bluetooth devices
- When opening up "Show Bluetooth Devices" windows, it never loads
- It works fine on the Windows Developer Preview (minor bugs)

Things I have already tried:

- Updating the drivers
- Updating Windows 7
- Running the drivers in compatibility mode for all other versions
- Searched Google

I'm out of ideas and am in serious need of help. I'm trying to mainly use the adapter with the Turtlebeach Delta Force Headset, but it will not read any other devices as well as the headset.

Here is the image of the "Show Bluetooth Devices" Menu. This is after loading for about an hour or so.

Hey there!
I use a HP Pavilion dv5-1004nr Notebook PC that came with Windows Vista (64 BIT) installed on it. The Bluetooth adapter worked fine till I upgraded to Windows 7 Ultimate (32 BIT). From then on, the device manager doesn't show any Bluetooth Devices; 'HP Bluetooth software' [ downloaded from HP website for my Laptop Model and Windows 7 (32 BIT) ] won't install saying something along the lines of 'No Bluetooth Devices found...'
I tried installing the 32 BIT driver manually through "Add a Legacy Device" and still had no luck. My BIOS has no options similar to turning the Bluetooth adapter on/off.
Furthermore, I upgraded my BIOS corresponding to Windows 7 (32 BIT) and my Laptop Model from the HP website- still no luck!
All other devices work fine after the upgrade though and there is not a single "Unknown Device" shown in the Device Manager.
Any help would be really appreciated.

Hello forum, I am looking for some help / suggestions.

I recently purchased the above ORICO Bluetooth Adaptor with the hope of being able to stream music from my PC to my BT speaker. However, I do not think the device is installing correctly as I do not seem to have any BT profiles in order for me to do this.

My installation process was as follows:

Uninstall old MS BT Adapter from Device Manager.
Remove MS BT Adapter from system.
Install your "ORICO Bluetooth 4.0 Adapter driver".
Plugin your BT Adapter.

After taking a while to install, Device Manager Installs a "CSR Bluetooth Chip" driver. However, this driver has no profiles at all, and no icon is the system tray and no way of even pairing devices.

Any help with this would be very gratefully received.
