Dell bluetooth keyboard problems.

Q: Dell bluetooth keyboard problems.

Hello there, this is my first post on these forums and I hope someone can help.

I was on an online forum last night on my ps3 and was tired of typing in posts using my ps3 controller. It dawned on me that I could pair my bluetooth PC keyboard to the PS3, and I managed to do so with no problems.

However, once I went back to trying to use the keyboard with the PC, it is not being detected. I have tried to reconnect using the "Add device" function in the control panel, but the keyboard isn't being detected at all. I even tried the old "Switch off and back on again" but to no avail.

I hope someone can help, it's probably something really simple but it has me completely stumped. Thanks in advance

I have a Bluetooth keyboard and mouse set that have a few issues. All the fuctions worked in XP but now they dont in Windows 7. They respond faster in Windows 7 than they did in XP which is great but parts don?t work. On the Mouse, the forward and backwards side buttons for IE do not work, along with the scroll button. I can click it and it will allow me to motion through a pages but it won?t do scrolling. With the keyboard I can no longer use the hot keys at the top for volume, calculator, home, etc... Not a big deal but would still like to use them. If you anyone has any ideas let me know.

A:Dell Bluetooth Keyboard and Driver

I had exactly the same problem and unfortunately Dell technical support were no help. As far as I can gather the Bluetooth keyboard and mouse are supplied to Dell by Logitech and the software that enables the higher level functions is called Setpoint. Version 4.80 is compatible with Windows 7 and should make all the keys work. I downloaded it from FileHippo. Good luck!

I am having difficulty in getting my Dell Wireless Keyboard connectivity in this Dell Dimension 9200 desk top since Win 10 upgrade.

Win 10 through WU installing "Broadcom Bluetooth 3.0 USB" and soon I loose the function of this keyboard that is connected through USB Blue Tooth mini receiver.

I do not know how to stop Win 10 automatically installing this Broadcom Bluetooth 3.0 USB.

Please can someone help me?





Those on my attachment are the one I wish to keep so that my wireless Bluetooth keyboard can communicate.

It may be that our Samsung Smart TV in the room trying to get my win 10 to install this dreaded Broadcom Bluetooth 3.0USB? - Just a thought... I am absolutely reached the end of my tether

Did you ever manage to solve this? I'm having the identical problem the last 3 weeks or so. I'm using a tablet with built-in Bluetooth, and I can get my previously-working keyboard working by removing it and pairing it again, but then it works for a minute or two and quits on my, showing it is still paired. I know the battery is fully charged on the keyboard.

Edit: Mine doesn't mention Broadcom, presumably because it's built-in and not connected to a USB dongle.

My old wireless setup finally crapped out so thought I d try Bluetooth with the longer range One thing I didn t know about Bluetooth at least with this particular keyboard and mouse to a small extent is that after a brief period of inactivity it unconnects or deactivates or whatever and to reactive it I have to type a key and then wait for seconds or more for it to come alive Very irritating especially like when I m trying to sign into something or am Bluetooth problems Keyboard working Bluetooth Keyboard problems on something I ve looked in the app and don t see anything where I can turn that off I don t mind replacing the rechargeable batteries more often if I can avoid that deactivating thing Any suggestions or am I just stuck with that Maybe back to quot old fashioned quot wireless At least those were quot always on quot or Bluetooth Keyboard problems whatever you d call it It s a Microsoft mobile keyboard and mouse There was a small install CD that came with them I don t know if the dongle would make any difference Thanks nbsp

A:Bluetooth Keyboard problems

Well, on the hopes there was something in the Bluetooth app that I missed, I went back and took another look.

Not much there, really. But I enabled Bluetooth Network (even tho I only have the BT keyboard and mouse and no other BT devices) and enabled sharing with other BT devices (I guess between the keyboard and mouse and dongle or ?).

None of those seemed particularly applicable when I looked at them before, but
whichever one of those did something, I did a test on the keyboard and at least
yet it hasn't shut off even waiting several minutes.

Actually, would be nice if everything PC / Windows would be that simple!

Hi,

I'm using Windows 7 Ultimate and I'm trying to install a Microsoft IntelliType Pro keyboard and IntelliPoint mouse. The mouse installed fine and works well, however I'm having trouble with the keyboard. The computer detects it and apparently install it OK. It gives me a code to type in on the keyboard and that works fine. However, when it's done, the keyboard won't work. After a few minutes the icon for it disappears from my Bluetooth Devices folder, leaving only the mouse one.

I've tried reinstalling the drivers and I've tried installing the keyboard on another computer, but I get the same result every time.

Please can someone suggest how to get it working?

Thanks,
Joe

I cannot seem to successfully work Bluetooth on my E4300. I've tried countless drivers and various troubleshooting processes and still no luck.
The Bluetooth capability is there, I know, and the light on the keyboard toggles on and off with the hard wifi switch. I've searched online for hours and found nothing that has helped so far... Other than learning that it might be a problem with Windows 7 and its infamous driver issues.
And advice?

I know for a fact that this keyboard works, because it works fine on my Win 7 OS on the same computer. Any help/advice would be greatly appreciated

You may have something underneath them. With the laptop off, turn it upside down and use a new soft paintbrush carefully between the keys to shift anything that might be there.

Hello. I have been having problems with my laptop keyboard (Dell Inspiron E1505).
Periodically the keys b,n, /, space bar, and 3 of 4 arrow keys stop working. Initially I thought the problem must be an obstruction or due to the keyboard, so I replaced the keyboard with a new one. The same problems occur, with the same keys. I have removed the keyboard a few times to check the connection of the keyboard to the laptop, but it has not improved.
From there, I looked around for other possibilities. I scanned my computer for any malware, viruses, etc with Ad-Aware, McAfee, Norton, but have not found anything. I tried to update the driver for the keyboard, but it is up to date. Is there anything else from software, windows, etc that could be causing the problem or is it due to hardware?
Thank you

Luckily, keyboards are cheap (er)... We have seen a number of problems with 1505 and related keyboards. Replacements are available on eBay for $14 to $26 with free shipping. They do go bad on nearly all laptops, but the 1505 has had a higher record of failure than most Dell laptops.

Hello John, Welcome to SevenForums

Unless your system has a built in BlueTooth Radio, (Check the specs on your Motherboard, It may be there but need activating), you will need to purchase a BLueTooth USB adaptor.

One bit of advice I would give is that there are many low quality BT Dongles out there - If you want to avoid problems down the line, go for one of the known makes

I have a kindle fire hdx 7. I recently purchased the IVSO case and Bluetooth keyboard to accompany it. It has now stopped working. Is it my internet? We have 3 devices constantly connected to the internet, including the kindle. I paired the keyboard with our iPad as well. Now whenever I try to connect it to the kindle, it will not connect! Everything seems fine, and the battery is charged. Is it because it is paired to two different devices? If so, then how do I "unpair" it? I would appreciate any help! Thanks!
 

A:Bluetooth keyboard. not working

Don't know the kindle but on my Android tablet, I look in settings then bluetooth to pair and unpair.
Mine gives me a set of numbers I need to type in then press enter when I pair it with my tablet.

I am trying to pair my HP keyboard SK-2063 with my HP All-In-One.  But it does not have a connect button and my PC is not recognizing it.  How can I pair it up?  Having the same problem with my mouse.  They came in the box and started working.  I purchased another keyboard and mouse that wound up being defective.  That's why I'm needing to go back.  Any help?

My Bluetooth keyboard started spamming the last key pressed. I turned it off, then turned it back on. Now it won't connect. It says "Pairing failed". I've tried restarting the computer, it still isn't working. How can I fix this?

And how can I stop this from happening? This happens very often.

This is my first Bluetooth keyboard and mouse and although it looks as though it was designed by an art student you are totally fudged if you are left handed because Logitech decided the entire world are right handed It is a well designed keyboard and mouse that cups your hand like a well fitted glove but it has a major flaw Or it's Windows The problem I have is the keyboard keeps disconnecting all the time which is really annoying when you are typing and half the words are not there Windows has Bluetooth already set as standard but I am now wondering if the disconnecting? Bluetooth keeps keyboard problems I am getting is Logitech SetPoint clashing with Windows Bluetooth Bluetooth keyboard keeps disconnecting? Which could be causing the keyboard to disconnect I must be honest I love the keyboard and the mouse is just amazing But the disconnection of the Bluetooth is so irratating you just feel like throwing in the towel and returning back to your wireless keyboard which kept a steady connection It never stopped working you never had to search for your keyboard Bluetooth keyboard keeps disconnecting? via Bluetooth Central Does anybody have an idea what is causing the dissconnection of the keyboard The mouse is fine it's just the keyboard which drops the connection and you have to press the red button on the keyboard and reconnect again it was fine Bluetooth keyboard keeps disconnecting? to start off with then it started disconnecting Any ideas folks

Hi,

I have a bluetooth keyboard and mouse (both Apple) that connect to Win 7 and I've gotten to work just fine.

The problem is this:

After a while they don't work anymore and I have to pull my Bluetooth USB adapter from the computer and replug it back in. I think this happens after the peripherals go to "sleep" but I cant be sure.

I think the USB adapter is made by "Wireless Link Systems" and I know the batteries are good in the devices.

Any ideas?

Thanks!

Iím having problems getting my Microsoft Bluetooth keyboard and mouse working.
Iíve installed Intellitype and IntelliPoing with no errors.
Iíve added the Keyboard to the Bluetooth devices, the passkey worked fine. But the keyboard just doesnít work. i.e. when I hit the keys, nothing happens.
In my keyboard properties, the wireless keyboard battery level is shown as good (theyíre new batteries).
The only thing that looks odd is that in the Hardware tab (in keyboard properties), it only lists my USB keyboard.
Iíve tried unplugging the USB keyboard and rebooting with just the Bluetooth one on, but no joy at all.

Easily the best purchase I made in 14 was a Lenovo tablet for 40 bucks. Love it. But need a real keyboard as I can palm a basketball easily and this touchscreen typing is not meant for hands my size.

Parameters are easy, I got this to lose the laptop as much as possible, so it needs to compact as small as possible. Im a camper and biker, so i needthe space in le backpack.

Price does matter, as I think this can be kept sub 40 USD, maybe 30.

Thats it, other than battery life. Big hands, compact well, price point. And not 2 of 3.

Every time I try to pair my Bluetooth keyboard in Windows 8.1, I get the error "That didn't work", with the subtext "Try again, and make sure your keyboard is still discoverable."

Given the uselessness of the error message, I don't even know where to start troubleshooting. Any ideas?

A:Can't pair my Bluetooth keyboard

Hi,

can you please let us know which keyboard are you using? Check in the keyboard settings, if it has the option which you can tick, like "make the hardware discoverable".

Click the Start button, click Control Panel, click Hardware and Sound, and then click Bluetooth Devices.
Select the device that's not working, and then click Remove.
Click Add, press the reset button on the device (or make it discoverable following the manufacturer's instructions), select the My device is set up and ready to be found check box, and then click Next.
If the device is not found, repeat the previous step. When the device is found, select it, and then click Next.

This is my problem:

I run windows 7 home 64 bit.
I have bought a 3.0 bluetooth keyboard. it says: works with apple windows. Next I bought a bluetooth radiodevice (that tiny usb 2.0-thing)

I plugged in the usb-BT-device. Automatically windows started installing the drivers. successful. and it flashes a light every now and then.

I put in new batteries in the keyboard. pressed the connect button 5 seconds. The keyboard is flashing a blue light.

I went to 'services' to check that bluetooth is enabled. True.

Nothing happens now.
I went to 'add a bluetooth device' under hardware, and it is still busy searching, but nothing happens.

All this I have repeated several times in different orders, but no changes.

Can anyone help me out. What am I missing here? or is something just broke when I bought it. All are new, not second hand.

Thank you.

I connect up a Bluetooth mouse and keyboard and the mouse works fine but as soon as I hook up a keyboard there is a strange hanging issue.

I will type something on the keyboard and when I go to use the mouse it will take anywhere from 1 to 2 seconds for the mouse to move. The same thing then goes for the keyboard if I go to type something. It will take 1 to 2 seconds for anything to show up on the screen after I go from mouse to keyboard.

A good chunk of the time the keyboard will not work and I have to re-pair it.

Using the latest Bluetooth Vista driver.

A:Bluetooth hangs, keyboard disconnects

For whatever reason without the Dell drivers, the Bluetooth will not even show up in Device Manager.

I was able to find a little newer version and will test that out when I get to my office. Also going to try a different BT mouse. I did notice the newer driver pack helped with some standby issues.

HI
I recently upgraded by Logitech (MX5000 Mouse and Keyboard set) software which included USB dongle firmware and now when I boot the machine (Dell D620) , the mouse works ok but the machine keeps prompting for new hardware for the kayboard. The logitech software timesout (and so device disappears) before i get the chance to click, browse my computer for drivers.

Two questions really.

1. Can I change vista to look locally before windows update for drivers
2. Can I force vista to realise it has the drivers.

I will probably uninstall the logitech software as the mouse & KB will just work natively anyway.

HI all,

I got a Philips freeline wireless keyboard & mouse with my PC last year, it has a USB RF key - is this the same as bluetooth? Because I've got bluetooth on my phone yet I can't seem to get my PC to recognise it - which leads me to think I can't. Am I right?

Do I have to buy a separate bluetooth USB dongle?

Thanks in advance
 

A:USB wireless keyboard/mouse + bluetooth question

You will need a separate bluetooth dongle. If your kb/mouse are bluetooth/usb, all that means is that the mouse and kb are paired to the receiver that is connected to the USB port on your PC.

Hi,
My Bluetooth Dell keyboard just stopped working. My device driver says I have an"Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43)" in the Blue tooth wireless hub.

I searched and could not find any posts specific to my keyboard problem. I have changed batteries, restored to an earlier day, did the troubleshooter, deleted and reinstalled the drivers. Nothing works. I would appreciate any help! Thanks in advance.

Here are my specs: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium , 32 bit

Well... with those kind devices I never had to uninstall old drivers... but maybe you can give it a shot...
About installer not executing, are those devices compatible with Windows 7? even if not, you can go to "Computer" and then double click the CD icon, that should "force" the launch of the setup.

See ya!!!

I am having issues using both the Bluetooth keyboard and mouse at the same time. Each device works flawlessly when connected separately. When the mouse is connected first the keyboard repeats keys and has a significant latency issue once connected. When
the Keyboard is connected first the mouse will not work once connected.
All bluetooth drivers and device drivers are up to date.
Is there a known issue with running multiple bluetooth devices at the same time? Is there an upgrade I can make to improve bluetooth functionality? Any advice/guidance that you could lend would be greatly appreciated. Please see below for the equipment in
question.
Equipment being utilized:
HP Elitebook 840
Windows 7
Logitech Bluetooth Mouse M557
Logitech Bluetooth Illuminated Keyboard K810

Much thanks,

Tried to search for this first so if it's been answered I apologize.

My work recently upgraded my laptop from Win XP Pro x86 to Win 7 Pro x64 and this is when this issue started happening:

I have a Microsoft Bluetooth Keyboard, Keypad and Mouse combo set and every once in a while they will freeze for about 2 minutes and during that time I can't use any of them to interact with the computer. After about 2 minutes it seems like they unfreeze and go back to working normally.

I'm not really sure what the issue is because if I type keys and move the mouse, etc while the screen is frozen, all of the keys I pressed are processed immediately after the computer unfreezes...

If that doesn't make sense let me know and I'll try to re-word it. Thanks for your help, this is really frustrating me as it happens several times a day now.

KB without a passkey which means I need the old wizard and not this flashy yet very dumbed down Metro interface where I can't see what the heck is happening The question is HOW - By the way the mouse doesn't matter as it doesn't use a password I am starting out on the desktop and right-clicking the Bluetooth icon by the clock display Bluetooth devices but as soon as the connect button is pressed this new Metro look kicks in But if I connect the mouse in then it becomes totally disabled in the other OS's because I can't get the wireless set to Hardware-Based rather than Software-Based Also how does one put back a missing Bluetooth item in the Control Panel I see bthprops cpl is in System but for some reason appears nowhere in the CP icons or category view - that last part was sorted out

A:How To Get Up The Non-Metro Bluetooth Keyboard Connection Dialogue?

The reason I wanted to avoid the passkey was that Bluetooth dongles rarely have the capacity to remember multiple passkeys so for a multi-boot setup it's a nightmare of re-pairing often.

I just tried an experiment. I paired my Microsoft BT mouse and keyboard in Windows 8 in the normal way and allowed the passkey pairing for the keyboard, which cannot be bypassed in any way in Windows 8. Then I opened Microsoft Mouse (or Keyboard) software and went to the Wireless tab > Bluetooth Connection > Advanced and made sure it was set to Hardware-Based, meaning the hardware is not controlled by the software as far as connections are concerned.
This allows my Vista, Windows 7 and even my XP VM's to keep their connection and continue functioning properly with no passkey.
I posted this to help others in the same situation.
By the way, there is a quick tutorial HERE (scroll down) on how to connect any Bluetooth device that normally requires a passkey, without one, but it only works in systems up to and including Windows 7. The enhanced UI in 8 has scotched any chance of it happening there.

It isn't a perfect solution as it doesn't always work but it will have to do. At least now I don't have to switch off my BT hardware because I'm scared 8 will auto-connect it and screw up the other OS setings.
One would have thought that Microsoft with all their expertise could have thought of this, especially when it's their own hardware involved.

I have the keysonic ACK-340BT keyboard with touchpad and left-right buttons, i was using with an acer tablet and win 8. After upgrading to 8.1 the touchpad and buttons stopped working, rest of the keyboard works. tested on another 8.1 machine and same issue.

So something changed from 8 to 8.1 that made the touchpad not working, any idea what?

edit.. it uses the Novel Smart-Touchpad

I want to connect my iPad 2 with my wireless Keyboard ( White ) via Bluetooth. I bought it online at 1powershop( for its high Reputation) The Keyboard is ok, it works perfect with the mac. The iPad finds the name of the Keyboard, but will not log with it ( i miss the point: Please enter the code. ) Apple support could not solve the problem, probably they call back in a few days.

Has anyone the same problems ? Or does anybody know a solution ? May be, that's a topic for an update, it`s for me not realy dramatic, but a shame.

I need to know how to find out if a bluetooth adapter is installed on a d620.
The bios has a place to Disable or activate it. So im thinking it has the moduale installed. Any advice would help.

Dell says that Bluetooth is an option on this model. If the option in the bios to enable or disable Bluetooth is hi-lighted, we can assume that the system has a Bluetooth adapter installed

I have a Dell 7710 with a Intel 8260 wifi/bluetooth card. I am trying to pair a Bluetooth headset (blue buds X) and it does not see the headset. I have the headset in pairing mode and the PC is searching, but it never finds it (or anything nearby).

My droid turbo 2 phone can see the blubuds and other devices near by. So I do not think it is an issue with the headset; rather, the 7710.

Also, on the 7710, I set the Bluetooth setting to "Alllow Bluetooth devices to find this PC" and my Turbo 2 does not see the pc.

I have the latest driver from dell. The card is seen in windows and shows functioning properly. The wifi works fine.

Any ideas? Could this be a driver/setting issue or just a bad card?

I did check and the two antennas are connected to the card.

Hi, I'm having trouble with the BT modules for my Dell D520. It shows up in my Dell D510 Device Manager without any hassle!

The D510 is running XP Pro and the D520 is running Windows 7 Ultimate. I have 2 modules which work great on the D510 but not on the D520.

I have now sent away for another cable to see if there's any luck by doing this.

Could this be a problem with the D520 running 7

TIA

I bought these speakers with a new dell 8900 running windows 10 in March.  The on off button for the speakers is very inconsistent.  I go for weeks not being able to turn the speakers on.  This morning I pressed the bluetooth button for a really long time (just for the heck of it) and then pressed on/off and the light miraculously appeared.  But what am I doing wrong?  I bought these for wired usage, not for blue tooth.  Why doesn't the on off button always work?

You may need to reinstall the Bluetoth drivers . .

You can go to the Dell support site, enter your Service Tag Number and download the bluetooth drivers. Be sure to use IE and do not use the Dell Download Manager!

Just download the driver file, save it to the desktop and double click to install

On the list of drivers, click on the driver file:



Then the download button here:

This is the Toshiba Bluetooth stack that you will need to install to get your keyboard to pair.

Google that and download the exe file directly from the Toshiba site. You have to uninstall the Dell 350 bluetooth software if you already have that installed. 
The camera is now the only thing I havent found a driver for, but I never used it anyway.

A:Windows 8 HTPC Rii Mini Keyboard Bluetooth Issues

Why don't you try restoring your PC to the earlier state before plugging in your Rii. It might help wiping out the info already stored in the system and start fresh again.

You have a very nice smartphone. I also have an android phone (HTC One X) and sometimes I use it to control my HTPC. Download the FREE app on your phone and then download the server on your PC and you can control your HTPC smoothly via your home wifi network. You can even turn on your PC thru WOL (wake-on-lan) and turn it off also just using your smartphone. You might think about returning you Rii after trying the Unified Remote App.
My other HTPC controller is a logitech K-400 wireless keyboard with heat pad. It's always nice to have a full size keyboard with any PC. It also has a tiny USB dongle which didn't have the same problem like you have now even if I plug and unplug it to the front and back of the HTPC.



BTW, This isn't me on the video. I just grabbed it from youtube...hahaha. Cheers!

I have exhausted my efforts to get an answer out of Microsoft's forums regarding the problem with W8's insistence of flashing straight into the Metro Devices page when installing hardware thus precluding the ability to install a Bluetooth keyboard (or other BT device) without a passkey, an essential element of having a functional BT keyboard in each OS of a multi-boot environment.

So does anyone know where in the registry is the key that can be altered to stop Windows automatically assigning a passkey? I would imagine it's the same in Windows 7 if I only knew where that was!

A:Registry Way Of Disabling Bluetooth Keyboard Passkey Requirement?

Sorry I can't help directly. I also don't have or use BT so bear with me lol...

You could install the driver using device manager and it will probably not put up this passkey screen you're referring to.
