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.)

Hi, You have to allow your Sony is discoverable. How ? Please check its manual. Normally it MUST have a blue button to press. Regards.

I have a bluetooth headset connected to a bluetooth usb adapter but I am unable to get the mic to work while using stereo audio, only when it's in mono audio. I read somewhere it's about the number of profiles supported, would I need multiple bluetooth adapters, a better one or is there a way to make it work that I'm just missing?

I would like to use my laptop as a bluetooth headset for my Playstation TV since I am using my second monitor with an HDMI switcher as the screen. I can't connect to my laptop using bluetooth (it finds it but can never connect), so I was hoping for a way to make the laptop appear as a headset instead. WIDCOMM looked like it might work, but the install hangs with the message "Please plug in or turn on your Bluetooth device" and I'm not sure what to do.

A:PC laptop does not find bluetooth headset

I recommend you to once make sure that your laptop has bluetooth in it, and if it has bluetooth installed in it ensure that bluetooth is switched on. Normally laptops have a wireless swtich for wireless and bluetooth that needs to be turned on.

I have ASUS N751JK (Win 8.1) and I'm trying to connect Philips SHB7150FB to it via Bluetooth and it doesn't work.

Latest drivers from ASUS installed, headset is charged and on (blue light is flashing).

PC can not find any Bluetooth devices around, so I blame PC, probably hardware/drivers?

(or I'm an idiot and missing something obvious)

Any help is appreciated

Hi all, My laptop is Lavie Z360. It has built-in bluetooth. It can pair with my iphone successfully. But it cannot find my bluetooth headset, SONY SBH70, which can also connect with iphone without any problem. Do I need any drivers to install? Where can I download those? It seems that the driver is not available in sony website. Thanks.

I've tried to install a couple of different Bluetooth headsets (Motorola & Samsung) to my Latitude E6230 running Windows 7 Pro x64. It recognizes the headset and says it has been installed, but then searches for drivers that cannot be found and the device icon ends up with an error flag on them and it doesn't work. I have an internal Dell 380 Bluetooth 4.0 module with current drivers that tests fine. Any suggestions?

Hi werosen,

Welcome to the community.

Please remove the drivers currently installed for Bluetooth and then install them from the link below:


Let me know the model of wireless card installed on the system.

Also, you can update any driver for your system by the following this video below:

Hi guperan,

Welcome to Seven forums.

We would need to know which bluetooth card is installed on the system. You would need to install the bluetooth driver/software for the system.

Driver Install - Device Manager

If you are unsure of the same then, kindly update your system specs here by following this.

Also, let us know the hardware id of the bluetooth card installed on the system:

Is it possible to get mic in from a Bluetooth headset, live play it through Laptop speakers/External USB Speakers?

I'm trying to make a mic-speaker combination which works without external power supply!

Also, are there any software which will simplify the whole process?

A:Bluetooth Headset mic to External Speaker via Win 7 Laptop

To me the laptop would have to be Bluetooth enabled which if it was then you could play the sound through the laptop speakers.

Adding a set of active powered speakers would then produce what you are saying on the headset.

A:Cant connect bluetooth headset to Windows 7 laptop..

But Im using a Dell D630 Laptop running Windows 7 Enterprise with the Dell 355 Bt adapter.

I've also had trouble getting it to connect. I used to have to force it to connect in XP. So I tried everything I can think of to force it in Win7 through the bluetooth settings dialog, and using the headset itself. Randomly it would work.

Eventually I found that if the headset is turned off, the computer rebooted, and the headset turned on, they just connect automatically without me doing anything. Which was great till something (like my cellphone) connected to the headset and then I couldn't get the headset to reconnect otthe laptop with out rebooting. Yuck!

Anyway this rebooting thing gave me an idea... What I do now, is right click on the bluetooth icon in the tray and turn off the bluetooth device in the computer. Then I power off the headset. Then I re-enable the bluetooth in the same menu. Lastly I power on the headset, and it pretty much works all the time - Though I had one time when it connected but I had no sound.

I love this headset with Win7 much better than with XP, the play pause, track forward/back even control WinAMP! It's cool!

Connecting used to be such a pain, I used to just load my music on my phone and listen from there. but now I can get my music, games, web audio etc. all ,mixed through the same headset. And it still switches to my phone when calls come in and returns to the computer when they're done. It's great!

I feel like I've finally got it working the way it's supposed to. Until today the only thing I found annoying was trying to switch Win7 back and forth between the BT headset and the built-in sound card. (I found this question while googling for that.)

I'd still like to find a sidebar gadget to switch that back and forth, but I found that right clicking the volume icon in the stem tray will allow you pop up the audio output device selection dialog directly (without drilling through start->control panel->etc.) It's not the best but it's usable.

I recently installed the latest version of the Toshiba Bluetooth Stack (v9.10.32T) for one of my desired applications to properly function. However, connecting my Bluetooth headphones through Toshiba's bluetooth manager does not seem to support the media buttons on the headset. These include Play/Pause and seek buttons. Before the Bluetooth stack, when I used my default bluetooth driver for connection, these controls had worked fine.

Also, there does not seem to be a specific setting to fix this in the Toshiba Bluetooth Stack Options.
How would I go about getting these controls back?

It worked perfect with my Andriod, but the Dongle does not seem to want connect with the headset. It seems the Dongle was not made to work with Windows 7 64bit. The bluetooth dongle will recognize the headset when I try to sync them, but will not actually let them connect for any audio. Here's a pic of the error.

I've tried reconnecting it multiple times. Been searching online for the past few hours for drivers and programs to get it to work, but no such luck. Any help will be appreciated.

I am trying to connect a Logtech wireless headset. I cannot find any settings for Bluetooth, or driver updates. On the bottom of the laptop I found the model number 15-1010wm. I tried connecting wth Control Panel>Devices and Printers, and the connect a device option. It found a phone, but not the headphones. In the summer I was looking in the settings and saw Bluetooth, either on my laptop or my siblings' (neither of them have Bluetooth options now). I have looked in Device Manager on mine and my siblings' laptop, and saw no Bluetooth. I have looked at multiple guides and none of them work. I know the headphones work because I connected them to my tablet.  Does anyone have any ideas or links to Bluetooth drivers that might help?

I have a almost broken headset, but the microphone still works fine, The microphone is connected on the wire right before the headset, Its not actually touching the headset itself.

Would this microphone still work if the headset was cut off?

Sorry but I can't manage to take a photo but

A:Will a Headset microphone still work if I cut it off the Headset?

Is the microphone actually supported by the headset, by that I mean when the set is on your head is the microphone carried close to your mouth so you have both hands free. If this is the case then cutting off the headset will mean the microphone will not have any way of being held near your mouth.
If you cut it off you will have to be very careful you don't cut the wires for the microphone & it's possible that there is a common return wire for the earpieces & the microphone in the form of a shielded cable, so it would be very difficult, but if you have skills in this area it could be done.

Apparently the range is short.

There is a youtube video supposedly showing you how to increase the range. I found it puzzling. There is no dialog nor onscreen captions. The guy has a tape measure and a Samsung phone. I have no idea what he is doing.

Your best bet would be to disable the weak onboard bluetooth and buy a USB bluetooth dongle.

I have a SONY MDRZX770BT Bluetooth Headset which I am trying to pair with my Dell OMNIPLEX AIO PC. All seems to go well, until I bring up the 'SOUND' screen from Control Panel. The headset, which was reported as successfully added, and ready to use, does not appear on the screen of playback devices.
All related BT and sound devices on Device Manager are shown as working properly, and the headset appears on the Devices and Printer screen. I also checked that all BT Services are running.
I was able to install, and use, the headset on my wife's computer, so it is not a defective device.
I checked the SONY web site for possible driver updates, and no downloads are avaiable for this device.
Also, I had a previous (Philips) BT headset working on this PC, so the BT software seemsOK.,.

I've been trying to setup my new laptop which is Dell XPS 15 (9550, i7, FHD, Broadcom WiFi + BT) running Win 10 Home Edition, to pair my android cell phone and use the laptop Mic and Speaker act as bluetooth headset, however been searching around on google and some said this features only exist on Pro and Enterprise version of Win 10, so is that true?

If it's not then may I ask if anyone has success on doing so?

I am able to pair it but the option to use pc as bluetooth headset isn't exist.

My BT headset doesn<t respond anymore to pairing. It is fully charged and turns on, but my phone and tablet cannot connect with it although it is paired Before it was working fine with both. Is there any way to test it(BT), to see what the problem is. It is a Jabra.


A:bluetooth headset

It is possible that the pairing has been corrupt. I would consider deleting the current pairing and then try to repair it to the phone. If that does not work you can try to pair it to a different bluetooth if you had a spare or possibly a friends. If it connects then it is a good chance it is a defective bluetooth.

I'm running win 8.1 and want to use a bluetooth headset. I'vs been searching for a day already for solutions in vain. Let me explain the scenario.
I have Dell Vostro 3460 notebook with Win 8.1 Core 64 bit on it. I have bluetooth enabled, I can connect to bluetooth devices (phone). My headset is a noname one but it still works on other machines (works with phone, works with Ubuntu).
In windows I can pair the headset but that's as far as it goes. I cannot select it as audio output device. I learned that for it to work I need to have an "audio sink" serviceat the bluetooth device. Unfortunately the only service my driver shows is "handsfree" (transleted, not sure if this is the proper english name).
I tried updating bluetooth drivers (various) but none of them made any difference.
Can anybody help me in getting this working?

Is there a place I might find universal over-the-head pieces?

I got an iogear headset that has only ONE ear piece available - it keeps falling off. They have no other choices, apparently.

Not even Plantronics offers more than one choice for their BT headset. How disappointing! If I can't find a better way to secure it, I'm going to send it back. Otherwise it fits great. I just always seem to have a fight with over-the-ear hooks.

I can see the headset on Devices and Printers, but can hear nothing without the audio cable.

I successfully installed on an ASUS T100, with no problems, but this has me stymied. Didn't see any 'connect' button here, either.

I'm trying to make a stereo bluetooth headset work on my HP Vista32 Desktop.

I can pair it, then connect it, the device changes from speakers to the headset in my "Playback devices" window, but I get no audio through the headset. After about a minute, the playback devices changes back to my speakers
and the headset shuts off.

I've checked all of the drivers in Device Mgr...all are installed and working properly. I've also done
attempted updates on all of the involved drivers. I get messages saying the drivers are up to date in all cases.

It appears that the drivers (Blue radio & enumerator, headset in sound, video and game controllers) are installed
correctly, but the audio channel is not cut through.

A:Bluetooth headset issue

For Bluetooth headsets, you normally need too install the driver and software that comes with the headset. If windows update is having a tough time finding drivers, try visiting the manufacturer website. After you install, use the software to manage pairing, then configure the sound output properly and it should work fine.

Hi all,

I just got my Bluetooth headset I had been waiting for...the Plantronics Discovery DSP 645. Paired it w/ my Treo and Thinkpad T60p. Everything worked great except when it came to the driver(s?).

I run Vista Ultimate x64. I shot them an email, but I'm betting on getting better help here. Do I even need a driver? Since it was trying to install one, I would imagine so. Everything else went perfectly. All the x64 Bluetooth driver sets for my Thinkpad were promptly installed. That's the reason I'm asking if I need a specific driver for the BT headset.

A:Bluetooth Headset Not Plugged In Error

Hi SaiFai and welcome,

I have a bluetooth headset for my Intel NUC in my living room and always seem to find connecting a bit more of a pain than I thought it should be.

What I usually have to do is right click the little bluetooth icon at the bottom right of my taskbar. Once in that it gives me two options. One for music listening and the other for Voip calls. I always have to choose which one I am going to be doing. For some reason i can't select a option to "Do all"...

Now I also have to go in to "Playback devices" via the "Speakers" icon in the taskbar. But only sometimes. Basically once I have connected through the Bluetooth options menu it doesn't always recognise properly. So this is why I have to go in to sound options to set default device to the headset otherwise everything is still defaulted to my Realtek soundcard. But on other occasions it will default itself to the headset

Hi gang.

I use Skype and Dragon NaturallySpeaking quite a bit and I would like to get rid of the headset cord.

Looking for recommendations for wireless or Bluetooth headsets that are *KNOWN* to work really well with either or both of those programs.

Also, what's the range for a Bluetooth headset? I'd like about 20 m straight line if possible.


A:Bluetooth or wireless headset with microphone

There is no real Bluetooth solution for NaturallySpeaking. The only mic that comes close is the VXI B-150 but it&#8217;s prone to pairing issues, quite expensive and is not incredibly accurate. The best wireless performers weren&#8217;t actually designed for VR. They include the Plantronics CS50-USB, CS-55, Revolabs xTag and the Samson Airline 77 in order from least to most accurate.

The Audio Device is also working fine as the same is getting paired with other laptops or to a mobile. The issue is with the connection between the HP Envy and the audio device.Kindly provide me with help here.

It says I have paired it and it is connected but still no sounds in headset or unable to transmit through mic for sound levels etc. It says to set audio in and out of QQ, MSN, etc. to bluetooth but not clear as to proper settings needed. Can anyone help me complete the process?

So i've got a Microsoft Wireless Entertainment Desktop 7000, which comes with a bluetooth adapter. I installed the software, so now i can use the bluetooth. I tried connecting the headset to it, but it messed up where it had to install the drivers. I tried with another bluetooth headset i had and that one didn't work either. anyone know how to fix?

Well I can hear myself today through the mic when I choose Test Hardware on the Audio Device Properties Voice Tab. I am going to try using ventrilo and see if there are any issues in there.

I have just purchased a HP iPAQ Handsfree Headset and a BElkin Bluetooth USB Adapter. It does not work

I followed the Install inst for the Blue Tooth adapter and found it works OK it also picks up the Headset when I Pair them together. My Blue tooth device manager states that the Adapter is working properly and was auto detected by windows XP. However I am trying to run Dragon Dictate and it cannot pick up the mic. So I tried to record a quick file with windows sound recorder and it did not work at all. Any thoughts.

Well, if the mic is not muted, I might suspect a bad unit.

I'm having problems connecting a nokia headset to a laptop via bluetooth. The laptop can see the headset, but when I click on it, then click connect it says that the headset is trying to connect to the pc and requires a pin (which I don't have). Any ideas how to fix this?

I can not turn on the headset.I have charged it, the light turns red when I put the cable in. But when I press the button in to turn it on, nothing happens. Has this happen to anyone else? Does anyone know how to resolve this issue? Thanks

I've just installed a new Win7 Pro 64 on newly assembled PC (i3-6300, B150 chipset - if it's important), but can not connect BT headset to it. Installed gazillion of updates, installed latest drivers (BT dongle - ASUS USB-BT400) from Broadcom site -- and I can't connect my BT headset to it. It pairs w/out a problem, but once paired and I right-click mouse on it (in BT devices) - there is no Services in the menu, and - as a result - no way to connect. (The attached image is from my laptop, where it works).

BT mouse that I have connects and works fine.

Sorry if I posted in the wrong forum - please, move to the appropriate one, if needed.

Hi and welcome to SevenForums,
That is sort of one of the perks of KB3172605

Known issues in this update

Issue 1

After you install KB 3133977, the software for Intel Bluetooth devices may not be fully functional because of existing software issues in the Intel Bluetooth driver software. These issues may affect Bluetooth keyboards, mice, audio streaming devices, and voice headsets. You may also not be able to pair new Bluetooth devices. Intel is currently working on an update to address their software incompatibilities.

If you require Intel Bluetooth support on Windows 7 before the revised software is available, the only known workaround at this time is to uninstall this update temporarily and then reinstall it after Intel has updated their software.
