Bluetooth devices not discovered by Logitech bluetooth receiver

Q: Bluetooth devices not discovered by Logitech bluetooth receiver

Okay so I don t really know if a solution is out there but here is the situation I m in I only have one discovered bluetooth devices Logitech Bluetooth receiver by not available USB port left which I am currently using for the Logitech Bluetooth dongle that came with my Logitech K solar keyboard I would also like to attach my Samsung wep headset for Bluetooth devices not discovered by Logitech bluetooth receiver Skype calls I have tried to discover the headset with and without Logitechs software installed with no luck I then checked device manager which does not show the dongle as a Bluetooth receiver device My assumption from that is that Logitech has it setup Bluetooth devices not discovered by Logitech bluetooth receiver to only receive from their own devices Since I have no room for another dongle and a hub isn t really ideal Is there some way to force the dongle to detect normal Bluetooth devices I ve searched for a custom driver or other work around with no luck so far This is on a computer running Windows bit nbsp

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I have a Windows 7 64-bit operating system and have had trouble getting it to recognize 2 new products I bought: a Logitech M535 bluetooth mouse and Logitech K380 bluetooth keyboard.  Each device is supposed to easily be used with all other devices
(smartphones, tablets, laptops, desktops, etc.)  Is this a proprietary matter for Microsoft?  Are there incompatibilities?  To add this new mouse and keyboard as secondary items on my computer, would I be courting new problems or sacrificing
the functioning of existing mouse and keyboard? I have read enough information to realize the very complex concepts involved, but it is all well over my head at this point and far more than I can comprehend.  I'd appreciate words of wisdom from all who
can relate to my question.
Thank you.

hi, my laptop had Windows 8.1 Pre installed to i installed Windows 8.1 Pro on it .. before upgrading, naturally all is working well, i backed up my Drivers using an Open Source Software i downloaded from SourceForge

after upgrading, i installed all drivers, all is working well except for my Bluetooth Radio .. though in the Device Manager, it is not showing any error as it says "The device is working properly" .. yet even when my Laptop's Bluetooth is in Discoverable Mode, none of my Phone, Tablet nor other Laptops can detect this Laptop .. Vice Versa, my laptop doesnt discover any devices too, not even my Bluetooth Mouse .. though my Phone was discovering my Mouse ..

i tried updating my drivers, but there was no luck ..
i tried reinstalling my drivers, there was also no luck ..
i tried resetting multiple times, still no luck ..

im running out of luck, please i hope someone knows anything about it

I got a Sony SBH-60, Initially it got connected with the laptop using Bluetooth, but later days it wasnt getting connected with laptop hence i removed the device and try to pair again i couldnt discover the device at all.

My laptop runs on Windows 10 and bluetooth chip is from intel.

So tried possible remedies already like
1) Updating drivers
2) Uninstalling/ installing drivers
3) Changing Bluetooth support service (automatic)

Everything was done still the headphone was not discovered.

I tried to run Troubleshoot in Hardware and devices

I got this image
I tried to restart the system but still this troubleshooting was shown.

Kindly help. Thanks in advance.

I've searched here and Google but haven't found the answer. I bought a bluetooth audio receiver to stream music to my stereo receiver and speakers. The device connected to the computer (Windows 8.1) perfectly. Appears as connected to the computer. But music played on the PC doesn't get to the stereo speakers. I can connect the device to my android phone and play music through the stereo speakers perfectly.

In Windows Volume Control, the BT device appears and is selected. When I try to play music through my receiver, I can hear music coming from my PC speakers (barely) but nothing through the stereo. What am I missing?

A:Streaming music to receiver thru bluetooth

How are you connecting the device to the PC? Via the headphone jack? GREEN speaker jack on the rear? Since it works with a phone I assume its being connected via an analog audio jack?

A:Using Bluetooth Receiver to replace broken OEM one...Won't work?

My guess is that the keyboard and mouse are wireless but NOT Bluetooth. Bluetooth is a published, industry standard but most wireless keyboards and mice on the market use a different, non-standard technology than Bluetooth. You may be able to buy a replacement wireless receiver directly from HP.

If the keyboard and mouse support Bluetooth they will most likely have the Bluetooth symbol on them to indicate that they are Bluetooth.

I'm using a Bluetooth dongle similar to the one that you purchased on this netbook I'm using right now and it works fine with my Targus Bluetooth mouse.

I'm having an issue with this thing.

It took me a long time to make it works, cause I was looking for right drivers. Now I have problem, which was from start. So, the device works corectly, but I have some delays when I listen to music. I press start in music player (foobar2000 or youtube) and the sound goes after 15~20 sec. It happens in most cases, not always, but...

Do you have any suggestions? Thanks!

I have installed actual Bluetooth-stack v9.10.32(T)
Also added Bluetooth filter package and Bluetooth monitor (cannot see them in the control panel under "programs and features)
But cannot complete pairing with an Denon AVR-X1100

when connecting with the Toshiba all steps look good until the pairing code is displayed.
I confirm it and the Denon displays the Toshiba as paired and connected
but the Bluetooth wizard is displaying for a while:
"setting up audio device"
and ends up with "connection to a remote device failed please try again"
and windows7 displays "Authentication went wrong"

My Iphone and my Dell Latitude connects without any problems so it should be related to the Toshiba Bluetooth-stack (settings)
any Idea how to solve it?

A:weird, unplug usb receiver and computer doesn't recognize; bluetooth fails

The Bluetooth might be connected internally via USB hubs and when you suddenly unplug the USB stuff, the bluetooth stops working because all the hubs are "disconnected".
As for the USB not working until after Outlook 07 is shut down ... maybe your computer can't handle the process. How long do you wait until you decide to restart?

-According to Logitech, I have the latest version of Setpoint

Logitech MX 5000 Set and Toshiba Bluetooth Stack My logitech MX 5000 came with the Logitech Setpoint software which allowed me to pair up the Bluetooth dongle with keyboard and mouse through Microsoft's BT Device Wizard. However it was unable to sync with my headset so I switched to my Toshiba Bluetooth Stack so that I can pair up with the headset as well.

Now that I am using the Toshiba Bluetooth Stack, I lost the option of Logitech Setpoint to configure the keysettings (Media buttons) of my keyboard and mouse.

Are there any way to fix this?

I am attempting to connect a mobile phone to my computer. On the Bluetooth Devices icon in Control Panel I am unable to 'turn discovery on' (in options). The message 'Settings not Saved' appears detailing discoverability and connection. I am operating on a Pentium 4 system with Windows XP and SP2.

A:bluetooth devices

Do you have a bluetooth icon in your system tray?

You should be using this and then utilizing the bluetooth places folder to find and connect the device and then discover available services with that device.

If you don't have that icon, your missing the Widcomm stack, which you need before bluetooth functionality will happen. Search your manufacturer website for these drivers.

Hi all,

I'm not sure if I'm posting in the correct forum, but I've got a question about bluetooth devices. This is gonna be a really dumb one. I have a newer laptop here that is wireless. In other words, I have a router and a small wireless network set up. I have the little blue button that lights up at the top of the keyboard. Is that bluetooth? I also have a wireless printer with that same icon lit up blue.

I have a new cellphone that is bluetooth and I want to make the phone and computer talk to each other to transfer pictures. I read that I need to go to "Bluetooth Devices" in the Control Panel to get things set up. However, I don't see that selection. So, do I have bluetooth or not?

I recently purchased a Logitech M557 bluetooth mouse to use with my Qosmio, which is updated to Windows 10. However, I have found the mouse lags constantly. I uninstalled/reinstalled the bluetooth software but it does not fix the problem. I tried the mouse on another laptop (Portege R830) and operation is perfect. The Portege is also updated to Windows 10 so something is not right with the bluetooth on the Qosmio.

Current bluetooth driver installed is 18.1.1525.1445, dated June 2015 and is the version installed when you update the device driver in device manager. I could not find an Intel bluetooth driver on the Toshiba website for my latptop, in fact all I could find were packages for Realtek and Atheros devices.

Any ideas?

A:Logitech MX1000 Bluetooth mouse disconnecting on cold start

I am a user of Logitech mouses for the last 10 years and I recommend them to everyone for their reliability.

Right now I am using two wireless mouses with small nano receivers. These mouses are excellent and one I am using on Win XP Professional, and the other I am using on Win 7 Ultimate x64.

Logitech has recommended that I use setpoint software on my old wireless mouse on Window XP, and I have installed the latest setpoint software. I always update the setpoint software whenever an update is available. This mouse is in use for the last two years and I never had any problem.

Coming to the Second Logitech wireless mouse (M215) Logitech suggested that no setpoint software is necessary for using this mouse. So I am using this mouse with Windows 7's native mouse drivers for the last three months and never had any problem.

So what I suggest is that if Logitech suggests setpoint software for your particular model of mouse, then you better download and install it. This will improve the performance and also give you some additional customizations to your mouse.

I hear the bluetooth mouses sometimes gives problems, but I do not have any experience with them.

Hopefully once you install the Setpoint drivers your mouse should work properly.

Another aspect is check your power saving features. If your system has wakeup features for the mouse, I suggest you switch off this feature.

According to Dell, these are the specs for your wireless card.  As you can see, there is nothing to show that your wireless card has any Bluetooth capability.  Without more information, I cannot say why you would have a "Bluetooth Devices file" in your Control Panel.  Should you want me to look into this further, please post screenshots of your Control Panel and Device Manager windows.

I can NOT un-pair devices this way! Note that removing the device via Device Manager does NOT remove it, as it comes right back.

I can send files normally but i cannot receive them. When I try to receive, the connection just fails. Do you have any idea what might be the problem and how to solve it? Could it be something to do with serial ports? At the moment I am using different serial ports for sending and receiving (COM23 and COM24). How can I change the serial ports so that they would the same for sending and receiving..?
Or has it anything to do with serial ports?

All devices have installed, the bluetooth module shows up in the device manager. I've downloaded and installed the Atheros Bluetooth driver from the Acer website. However when I try to add a bluetooth device it doesn't find anything - it just says "Searching for devices" and eventually says "No devices found". I've placed two mice in pairing mode but neither show up (Logitech M555b and Kliq KL-TSMBT3), it doesn't even detect my iPhone.

Anyone got any ideas or fixes??

A:Bluetooth devices not detecting?!?!

Right now, I'm having the exact same problem. I have that model too. I ran a Windows Troubleshooter, and it came up with lots of bluetooth problems. It told me to reinstall the drivers for it, so I'm trying to do so right now...

I currently have a Titan GT80 -009 laptop and cannot for the life of me get any of my devices to connect to this laptop. I turn on Bluetooth and it doesn't find anything while in pairing mode. I uninstalled the driver, re-installed..looked on google and turned off power saving for devices; changes service to auto instead of manual and nothing..

Device manager shows Bluetooth is running fine Qualcom Atheros QCA61x4 4.0 installed.

I really don't want to factory reset, i called MSI for support and that's all they told me to try doing...that's great tech support.

Any help is greatly appreciated..

I have read a lot about problems on W7 with Bluetooth, but none of the solutions seem to apply to me. When I doubleclick on the Bluetooth icon in the taskbar the Bluetooth Devices window comes up, the green bar loads to 99% and nothing happens, even though I have 2 turned on Bluetooth devices near the dongle. I have also tried using the software (BlueSoleil) that came with the dongle, but that doesnt work either.
All the devices in the device manager are installed correctly (no unknown devices). I am using W7 Premium.
Any help is appreciated.

My machine running windows 7 will no longer see any bluetooth devices. Prior, it had a Microsoft bluetooth mouse 5000 connected, and had a generic bluetooth driver. I attempted to add a bluetooth device, but it would not see any of the devices I tried to add (headphones, earpiece, phone). Removed the mouse and tried to add again. Nothing. I downloaded the drivers from broadcom and installed. Still will not see any devices. Uninstalled and deleted broadcom drivers. Rebooted. Windows auto-installed bluetooth adapter as BCM2046. Still will not see devices, including originally connected mouse. Uninstalled and rebooted. Windows automatically reinstalled the BCM2046 Drivers. Still will not see devices. Booted to ubuntu. Was able to initialize card and discover and add all 3 devices immediately. Rebooted into windows. Reinstalled broadcom drivers. Rebooted. Still does not find any devices. Even updated my bios.

due to the age of the component id say that drivers are no longer supported for it. I have an old NEC laptop which i upgraded to windows 7, everything works fine bar the sound card, as they no longer make a driver to support it.

Can some one explain to me why even a cheap mobile phone can connect to any Bluetooth speaker I come across and windows, even though it identifies it as external speaker, can't without loading drivers.

it's very frustrating.

A:Why do we need bluetooth drivers for basic devices

Bluetooth doesn't automatically come with every computer. Bluetooth on Notebooks usually is part of the Wi-Fi adapter, turn Wi-Fi off and Bluetooth will also be off [3 of my Notebooks have it]. Haven't seen Desktops yet that come with Bluetooth but USB adapters are not expensive, got one in 2 Desktops. Drivers for either scenario are required for the adapter and frequently for specific devices so they can be Paired to the computer. Some versions of Windows will have built-in drivers.

A lot Apple's Macintosh computers use Bluetooth. Some versions of Linux have built-in support for Bluetooth on those machines with the adapter.

Hi all,

I wasn't sure exactly where to post this so I hope this is ok here.

I recently bought a bluetooth headset, it pairs fine with my iphone. I tried to pair it to my Windows 10 PC and it never shows up. There's no errors, nothing, just no device ever shows up. I have updated the realtek bluetooth driver, I've restarted both devices, I've made sure the PC is discoverable. Nadda. Is there something simple I'm missing? I feel like I'm going a little insane.

Tried to connect my sister's computer and then my phone. They both paired "successfully" but with the computer it said that I was unable to install drivers and on my phone it said "paired but not connected". Another odd thing is it's showing the computer as a desktop, but it's a laptop the same model as mine but her's is still windows vista.

I updated to Win 7 with a full/clean install so is there a driver that I should re-install or update?

A:Unable to connect to bluetooth devices

Depending on make and model of some mobile phones, phone manufacturer may not have or will not update the driver for those types of phones for windows 7. They want you to buy a new phone...same thing happened when vista rolled out and a lot of printers wouldn't work with the OS. You can call you mobile service provider and ask them about the compatibility issue.

My HP notebook was recently reinstalled with Window 7 Professional 64bit. Now it won't share files with my Samsung galaxy S5 via bluetooth (and vice versa). When pairing the 2, Windows states "device driver software not successfully installed".

Windows support suggests the problem is with my device (phone) and I should download the driver directly from the manufacturer's website. I tried sharing to a friend's phone (S3 mini), with whome I'd successfully bluetoothed files prior to Windows reinstallation = same problem persisted as with my phone, which indicates to me that the problem lies with Windows.

Hi there, first time post so be gentle with me..

I have an issue that is making me tear my hair out. I have an XPS M1530 with a dell 355 bluetooth module in it, an dI have recently installed Windows 7 RC1. When I did, the drivers automagically installed for my bluetooth module, and didn't throw any complaints. The problem is that it says it is working fine, but it never finds any device when I search for them, it just can't see anything.

I have tried installing the latest drivers from windows update, the Dell website, a patch from the website and the latest drivers from the broadcomm website, and it still behaves in exactaly the same mannor with all of these. The module worked fine before the win 7 install, and I am at a total loss as to where to go next. Can anyone help?

I have seen a few printers that have USB and Wifi connections, I have also seen a small point and shoot digital camera that transfered it's pictures via wifi instead of bluetooth. Is bluetooth being phased out? Does this mean bluetooth is dieing? I know that wifi has a higher data transfer rate so it's more convenient but I can't imaging a wifi mouse or a wifi earphone.

A:Some devices are usinf Wifi instead of bluetooth

Bluetooth isn't dying, but is becoming something more integrated. Some speculate that cars will use it instead of internal cabling (bad idea if you ask me).
This article
another article

But wifi is better for some applications, as it allows the device to get inside a network and communicate with any device inside that network (so it's why wifi is pretty prevalent in printers along the Ethernet interface), while bluetooth is usually used for a temporary very-short-range connection between two devices. So you get bluetooth operated smart locks, sensors and other stuff that would make no sense to put on Wifi.

I can't imaging a wifi mouse or a wifi earphone

Why not? They are just different data transfer protocols over radio waves.

Hello! I was trying to use bluetooth to synch my Blackberry Perl phone with my Dell Desktop running Win XP SP2. After reading info on the Blackberry site about why their software would not allow me to enable a bluetooth connection, I uninstalled the Widcomm bluetooth software from the add/remove programs from the PC.

The issue is when I pair a device with my computer using Bluetooth I am no longer able to unpair or even uninstall the device Bluetooth Uninstalled Automatically Devices Install as if i Uninstalled Bluetooth Devices Automatically Install do somehow windows will just automatically reinstall it even if it's not connected This means that if i connect the device to something other than my Uninstalled Bluetooth Devices Automatically Install computer I can no longer re-pair it with my computer as it thinks that the device is still paired When I pair the device from the Bluetooth section of control panel the device will disappear from the control panel Bluetooth menu and the only way to see that the device is connected is by looking in device manager Here is an image I have found of what the Bluetooth section of the control panel should look like with paired devices Now here is what mine looks like even though I have a number of devices connected Here's what I've Tried I have removed and completely uninstalled all Bluetooth devices from the PC using device manager even the hidden devices and also uninstalled all Bluetooth applications from the control panel After doing the previous steps I reconnect the Bluetooth dongle ASUS BT- and install the driver I downloaded from the Asus website As soon as the driver for the device install all of the previously paired since time began devices will install and windows will think they air all paired again I can see this though the device manager I had this issue when I was on windows and I have it again now I did a clean install of windows and the issue still persists even though I have tried two different Bluetooth adapters to make sure one wan't faulty How is Windows storing these devices to re-install even though they're not connected

Would like some help with this one...
See this? I can't remove devices via this method. Likewise via Device Manager AND Registry Editor.
Is there any way to remove them?
Also, I have other devices that are not shown in that list STILL showing up in the "Send/Receive a File" dialogs, like an older tablet, phone, etc.; unable to remove those too.

I have a 20FB running Win 10 with a Logitech K810 Bluetooth keyboard that I've been using with a corded mouse without any problems. I recently purchased M557 Bluetooth mouse and now, intermittently, but consistently, my keyboard stokes are inaccurate, with multiple repeating letters and extra spaces. If I turn my mouse off, the keyboard again works fine. Disconnecting and reconnecting both devices did not solve this problem. The Lenovo System Update utlility indicates that the device driver is up to date. The Lenovo supplied device driver version is 18.1.1546.2762. Nonetheless, I was able to solve this problem by updating the device driver from Window?s Device Manager to Intel?s latest driver, version 19.0.1621.3340.

I have recently had to reinstall Windows 7 Home Premium. Originally I had an LG Bluetooth Wireless Soundbar working ok but since the reinstall I cannot get it to work. The PC recognises the soundbar but when it looks for a Driver it says none can be found. I do recall originally that I had a bit of software which was on the bottom right of the task bar and when I opened it, I took the option to connect. I cannot remember the softare.

Any ideas please?

Hi, I have a tablet with Windows 10x64. I use it with a bluetooth mouse and keyboard. Problem is that both are picked up only when the desktop shows up, but they are inactive during boot (only a wireless keyboard will work, I tested it). So my question is, how can I make Windows load the necessary bluetooth drivers during boot (before the desktop shows up)? I need this because at startup I'm prompted for a password (drive is encrypted) and the only way to type it is either with a wired or wireless keyboard, but not a bluetooth one. Thanks.

Just got a pair of artic bluetooth headphones and was able to pair it to my laptop running win 7.  It shows up in devices under devices and printers but is not showing up in devices in WMP12.  All that shows up there is my dvd drive, my display,
and speakers.  When I click on the speaker icon and select the audio device in the drop down menu all that is available is the realtec audio or default audio device. The headphones are not listed. Clicking on the default audio device still doesn't
get the headphones to work.  The headphones work fine with my tablet though.  Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks.
