Laptop to LG Hi-def Soundbar bluetooth

Q: Laptop to LG Hi-def Soundbar bluetooth

Not sure if this question has been answered elsewhere, but i'm wondering how i would be able to stream audio from my HP Mini Laptop to an LG Soundbar with bluetooth. I've gone through the steps to pair the two devices, and the process has been completed. On the soundbar it reads "paired" And my laptop says the same thing, however, when i try to play music through the soundbar, it only comes out of my laptop speakers. How do i solve this?
Answer as soon as possible please?
By the way, i don't know if it should make a difference, but i have Windows 7 Starter edition.

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 http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

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?

Hey guys,

So i spent the entire day trying to figure out why my Bluetooth installed fine but after one restart it disappeared and it wouldn't come back. I finally figured it out that the FN+F2 (wireless/bluetooth switches) is what enables/disabled it HAHAHAHAHA.

default (after startup): WiFi on / BT off
first time: WiFi on / BT ON yay~!
second time: WiFi off / BT on
third time: WiFi off / BT off

and repeat.

I hope this helps people with their bluetooth issues =)

Windows 8 was able to install all my Function Keys so I'm going to assume this will be the case for others. Good luck

I`m not sure if I am posting in the correct location, if not please move me to the correct location.

I have my Ps3 connected by HDMI to tv and I have a soundbar with optical cable to tv,
I have tried to connect Ps3 to soundbar direct with AVR from Ps3 to red and white input on soundbar but when I turn off tv the sound from Ps3 goes off.
Is it possible to listen to music on Ps3 via soundbar without the tv on ??
 

A:Ps3 to soundbar

Depends on the soundbar. If it has a power switch, you should be able to simply turn it on. Some use the HDMI input to control power on/off and don't provide a manual bypass.

Check the User Manual.

Hi,
I need to purchase a soundbar for a Dell E2011Hc Monitor.
The question is, does this monitor accept a soundbar, and if so, which one?
On the back of the monitor, I think I see the supports for the soundbar (one on either side):

But when I look at the tech specs for the Dell soundbars, I don't see the E2011Hc monitor listed.
I see that all E series monitors manufactured after 2013 are supported. But this monitor was manufactured in June 2012.
So I'm confused - can I attach a Dell soundbar, and if so, which one?
Thanks.

I just received a new Dell AC511 soundbar and I'm quite surprised about the high level of white noise it emits independent of volume setting. In a quiet room it sounds like there are two tiny fans mounted instead of speakers. Here's an amateurish recording to get a sense of what it is like (you probably need to crank up the volume):

Now that I've searched a bit I see other mentions of this problem. Does anyone here have an AC511 that doesn't "hiss", or is this product flawed by design?
(I notice that the AC511's lowest volume level is quite high, which gives a feeling that there is too much amplification taking place somewhere along its audio path. If this is done in the wrong place I guess it could amplify the DA converter's white noise to this kind of unsuitable level.)

A:AC511 USB Soundbar, static

As the OP I now take the liberty to summarize this thread and mark it as answered. There have been several topics touched on:
Will Dell fix my buzzing AC511 soundbar?
No, this is what Dell said when looking into this issue: noise was present but well below the Dell parameters dictated to the manufacturerand after that we have had no relevant news.
Topic closed.
Will other speaker products from Dell have less ambient noise?
As Dell mentioned that the product item they tested had noise well below Dell's limits, we asked what Dell's noise limits are for audio products, but there was no reply. Thus there is no way of knowing if they happened to test an item without the hissing problem or if Dell's limit is set high.
So, if you are sensitive to ambient noise either be prepared to return any Dell product or choose another brand.
Topic closed.
Can I fix AC511 buzz myself?
There have been several suggestions about cabling, nearby wireless equipment, aluminium foil and USB settings and it seems people are still experimenting with workarounds.
This question seems to be alive so feel free to keep adding new developments to the thread!

So occassionally the insignia sounbar that I've been using with my computer stops playing sound. When this happens occasionally anything attempting to produce a sound will stop playing and/or freeze, like wmp, or a youtube video. The other thing that happens is the blue light starts flashing. Normally I just restart the computer and everything gets fixed but this seems more like a software problem on my computer, than a hardware since I doubt the physical components could cause any disruption of an otherwise digital process.

Still I'd rather fix this problem completely and not have to deal with these restarts anymore since restarting my computer, is just irritating in it's own right.

So, I recently installed the Dell AC511 Soundbar, and got it work (I got the sound to come out of the soundbar). However, after I celebrated my technical victory of installation, I noticed that the sound was very wrong. Below is my list of issues that I am unable to fix:
1. It sounds like Sia is singing in a tunnel...very echo-y.
2. All of the audio mixing is backwards...Basically, I can hear all of the background music and singing and I can barely hear any of the main vocals.
So instead of hearing:
**Main lyrics/vocals of the song** (appropriate volume of background music and vocals)
I hear:
(BACKGROUND MUSIC AND VOCALS) **Tiny whisper of main lyrics/vocals**
 
Someone help me. I just want to listen to music using my headphones. My technical abilities don't extend much past plugging things in!

I recently bought a Dell AC511 USB Soundbar. It was easy to set up work, works nicely. Looks good.
But... I think the output level is much to high. I always have it between 8 and 12. 14 and higher is to loud.
Most audio drivers have a level setting that can be used to tune the output level. For the AC511 driver, the level setting is equal to the main audio level of the PC, so changing the volume of the PC changes the level in the driver... 
I also notice that the volume is not scaling. It would be nicer if the lower level more fine grained, make the higer levels use bigger steps. (logarithmic?)
I'm using Windows 10 Home.

Hi,
I have bought this soundbar for my new Dell monitor U2515Hc.
All seemed fine until I plugghed my headset into the soundbar.
No problems with the audio jack, but when I plug the microphone all sound stops.
Soundbar only - Soundbar works fine, sound out.
Audio jack into soundbar - Sound out just fine in headphones.
Both audio jack and microphone jack into soundbar - No sound whatsoever.
Microphone jack only into soundbar - No sound whatsoever.
When I check the recording devices, I can see two High Definition Audio devices unavailable (not selectable).
I tried to use Skype and the microphone actually works great, it seems I can use the microphone and get sound out from the sound bar at the same time.
Any help would be really appreciated!

The upstream cable is connect to port 8 on the bottom of the monitor. Other charging devices (eg phone) work on 9ab but the soundbar doesn't. Can anyone help please?

The preferred USB downstream port for the AC511 and the U2415 is the #6 back/rear USB downstream port. For testing, disconnect all other USB devices from #9a and #9b. Test the AC511 on those ports by itself.

On the Win 7 machine when I click the the bluetooth icon in the systray the option to 'Allow a Device to connect' is greyed-out and there is no alert that a device is trying to connect. A far as I can tell the bluetooth settings on both laptops are OK, adding a device was OK with the passwork handshake completed without problem.

Is this a driver issue, settings issue, or summat else?

Are you using "homegroup" for networking?

Is there no other way you can transfer like wifi (its faster)?

I really dont want to have to have a dongle taking up a USB Port, is there a way I could install a driver? Thanks in advance, Aaron

A:Is there a way I can get Bluetooth on my laptop?

If only you could add hardware by adding software. I confirmed your laptop did not have bluetooth from the factory. Your choices are 2. Add the usb dongle: easy cheap works like a charm. Otherwise open the back of the laptop, remove the wireless card and install a dual function wifi and BT card in its place and it has to be one of those cards HP offered from the factory on the same model series or the laptop will refuse to boot up. It is actually not terribly hard to do and not terribly expensive although more than the dongle thing. Once you have Bluetooth hardware in the laptop THEN we install a driver.  Post back if you want specific instructions and we need to know what country you live in.

A:Bluetooth/Laptop

That model doesn't have a Bluetooth adapter, so you'd first have to buy and install one. Some phones require software to be installed in order to transfer data, and some simply don't support it. Others only allow transfers to and from flash memory cards. The first step should be to review your phone's manual, and contact your cell provider with any questions as features can vary by phone and provider.

Hi: Below is the link to the product specs page for your notebook. http://support.hp.com/us-en/product/HP-15-f200-Notebook-PC-(Touch)/7630399/model/8788164/document/c0... It does not come with built in bluetooth networking or that feature would have been listed along with the 1x1 802.11b/g/n WLAN wireless connectivity specification. The easiest thing to do would be to purchase an external usb bluetooth adapter in order to have bluetooth functionality. You may also be able to replace the wireless card with one that has bluetooth, listed in the service manual for your notebook. http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c04763947 Make sure there are two antennas connected to the wireless card if you plan on replacing it.

I'd like to know how to put necessary software on my laptop for Bluetooth capability's. Using hp pavilion entertainment pc. Running windows vista sp2. Thank You to whom ever is able to assist.  

A:bluetooth questions for laptop

Does it even have bluetooth capability?  If so I would go to hp and search for your model and download the driver for it.  Unless you bought a card for that, in that case I would go to the manufacturer and download the driver from them.

A:Bluetooth gone from Windows 7 32-bit HP laptop

Since the bluetooth device is not shown in Device Manager, this means either 1 or 2:

1. Bluetooth is disabled/turned off either by the bluetooth slider switch somewhere on one of the laptop's 4 sides, or there will be a key (usually top row) which has to pressed in combination with the 'Fn' key.

Or

2. The bluetooth adapter itself is faulty.

Hi guys,

I've recently updated to Windows 10, but the bluetooth didn't seem to work properly. It doesn't seem to be able to detect any devices. Also, i couldn't even find the option 'allow devices to connect to this computer' in bluetooth settings. i've tried to reinstall the latest version of drivers but it didn't help. Could anyone kindly tell me what's wrong and how to fix it? Many thanks.

PS: my laptop is alienware M17x R2.

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.

Make sure that you haven't turned it off by accident. On some laptops there is a small button/slide somewhere around the front/edge of the laptop and on others there is usually a "FN" key that needs to be pressed in conjunction with one of the "F" keys (should have a bluetooth logo on it) ... hope this helps a bit pal

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 I have a Compaq R Z Laptop computer that vs. Laptop Compaq PCMCIA Bluetooth I bought in December from the HP website I accidently forgot to get internal bluetooth so I bought a PCMCIA card With my previous laptop I used a USB adapter and before I got the PCMCIA card I had it installed in the Compaq laptop When I received the card and installed it it had an error so I went to the device manager and it said Windows cannot load the device driver Compaq Laptop vs. Bluetooth PCMCIA for this hardware The driver may be corrupted or missing Code Click Troubleshoot to start the troubleshooter for this device Click to expand So I thought about it and decided to install the software I thought it would be plug and play Anyway After I installed Compaq Laptop vs. Bluetooth PCMCIA it it still didn t work so I went to the device manager again and I got this message This device cannot find enough free resources that it can use Code If you want to use this device you will need to disable one of the other devices on this system Click Troubleshoot to start the troubleshooter for this device Click to expand I don t think that this is suppose to happen and I don t think there is any other hardware that I can disable I think this has to do with my old USB adapter So I thought that if I plugged it in and went into the device manager and clicked on quot uninstall this device quot the PCMCIA would work There is only one problem I ve lost the usb adapter it was only a of an inch long I would really appreciate any help you guys can offer nbsp

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.

A:Bluetooth COMPLETELY Missing from Win 10 Laptop

How did you disable BT; via the taskbar icon (do you have one?), Action Center (see screen shot) ? If you do not have a driver in the Device Manager, you won't have a Bluetooth listed in the Action Center.

You'll need to find out which driver came with the laptop. There are 3 Bluetoooth drivers for your model on this ASUS support page (more than likely, you have the later Qualcomm)-

The only piece of hardware that my new Win 10 laptop can "see" is my wireless mouse. I have a FitBit tracker and a pair of Beats wireless headphones. Neither of these can connect via Bluetooth. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Hi Friends,
I've a typical situation here:
1. A PC with Vista Ultimate installed and a Bluetooth dongle (Widcomm drivers) connected to a broadband internet via LAN card.
2. A laptop with Windows XP and bluetooth inbuilt.

Now I wish to share the internet connection of the desktop to the laptop over bluetooth. Is it possible?

One more issue I face in Vista is that when I try to enable the ICS for the internet connection, I get this error "An error occurred while Internet connection sharing was being enabled.
(null)" - Screen shot attached.

Can someone please help with this problem?

Thanks in advance!
 

A:Internet Sharing between PC & Laptop over Bluetooth

OK, here's another update:
I stumbled upon the Event viewer of the system and the log entry corresponding to the ICS error says:
"The ICS_IPV6 was unable to allocate  bytes of memory. This may indicate that the system is low on virtual memory, or that the memory manager has encountered an internal error."

Yes that special character is there before the word 'bytes'!

Now it seems the problem is with the IPv6. My ISP surely doesn't provide anything on IPv6. So can I somehow remove it completely? I've already unchecked it from my network properties, but no use!

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?

Have a dell Vostro 3550 w/windows 7 64 bit. Can I pair Bluetooth Speakers?

A:Bluetooth Pairing - Windows 7 Laptop

DUNCANMATHESON,
You should be able to pair the bluetooth speakers to your computer. Below are some links to help you get the speakers paired.
In Windows 7


Turn on your Bluetooth device and make it discoverable.The way you make it discoverable depends on the device. Check the device or visit the manufacturer's website to learn how.
Select the Start button 

 > Devices and Printers.
Select Add a device > select the device > Next.
Follow any other instructions that might appear. Otherwise, you're done and connected.

Your Bluetooth device and PC will usually automatically connect anytime the two devices are in range of each other with Bluetooth turned on.

Device Manager says -
"This device cannot start. (Code 10)
The I/O device is configured incorrectly or the configuration parameters to the driver are incorrect."
Troubleshooter / audio playback says "there is a problem with driver, try reinstalling".
Tried driver update and reinstall, but no change.
Tried connecting soundbar to different USB ports (USB2 and 3) but no change.
 The soundbar worked fine on initial but now doesn't make a sound. LED light on and volume scale appears when turning control knob. 
Checked sound Ok from headphones, so seems to be soundbar only.
Any ideas?

I have exactly the same problem as DOUGXPS8900 describes.  I also have tried all the same fixes without success.  The sound is coming to the monitor as evidenced by watching a You Tube Video with the NVDIA Audio feature turned on, You are able to see the sound volume change with the playback but nothing goes to the soundbar
Any further suggestions as to what to try would be greatly appreciated.  Dell indicates there is no driver for this soundbar but upon attaching it to the USB port on the monitor it immediately gets flagged with a driver error label.

Hi,
I'm struggling to attach the soundbar to the computer. There are two cables in the box. On the picture it shows the short cable attached to the soundbar that slots into the monitor. Is the extension cable supposed to attach to the short extension cable attached to the soundbar or is that supposed to go in a separate slot. On the diagram in the instructions it looks like both cables need to be plugged in.
This might seem like a stupid question but it isn't clear in the instructions.
Thanks,

Hi totleygirl,
Thank you for writing to the Dell Community Forum.
You will have to connect the USB Extension Cable to the computer USB port and the other end to the soundbar cable.

Please reply if you have any further questions.

Hello guys!

The problem: My mobile does show up on my laptop but when I select the file and try to transfer it to my phone,it says "error establishing a connection,FTP connection failed"
If the phone shows up,it means its connected right?? Then why can't I transfer my file?
Tell me step-by-step as to how I can successfully connect with FTP(file transfer protocol) for my phone.
I have tried several times,but it keeps sayin that "error establishing connection" even though my phone shows up ...
Just guide me through all the "pairing,FTP,configuration etc" needed to connect , please......

I've recently bought a Bluetooth USB Dongle for my Dell Inspiron 1764 laptop so my wireless headphone could connect to it. The dongle connected and installed fine but when I pressed "Add a device", it saw it as a keyboard and when it tried to install the driver for it, it gave me a "No driver found" for Bluetooth Peripheral Device. It is a Ciberspeed Sports Bluetooth Headphone and it has worked for my iPod so I'm not sure if that's the issue. I appreciate any help.

Hi @Sid3296, I have read about your HP 15-ac122tu Notebook and Bluetooth not connecting to your phone. Here is a link that might help.  I would check to make sure Bluetooth is on. It shows you how to do that under Connecting Bluetooth. A device such as computer might need to have the Discovery setting turned on. To turn on Discovery in Windows 8, from the Start screen, type Change Bluetooth to open the Search charm, and then select Change Bluetooth settings from the search results.  Please let me know how this goes. This is a great question other customers may also be wondering about; please click the Accept as Solution if you feel this post has helped you, or could help others.
