I cannot connect my phone to my PC (Windows 8.1) with Bluetooth

Q: I cannot connect my phone to my PC (Windows 8.1) with Bluetooth

I'm trying to connect my PC and my Asus Zenfone 2 with Bluetooth. When I use the "add a device" wizard on Windows 8.1, my mobile phone is detected, but when I try to add it I get: "Windows doesn't have a network profile for this device".

Also, when I try to detect my computer with my mobile phone, its not detected.

I'm using a Trust USB 2.0 dongle Bluetooth adapter (the little one you insert on the usb port) that came with a keyboard and mouse Bluetooth set that I used. Could that dongle be designed only for the bluetooth keyboard and mouse set?

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.)

The Bluetooth device seems fine as it already detected your keyboard and mouse. However, your phone seems not supported with the current Bluetooth device and you might need to take another look.

Hey, I recently received a Sony Erricson T610, and a Bluetooth dongle to use with my PC. I have paired the devices and used many of the features available, such as sharing pictures and themes, I have also taken advantage of floAt's Mobile Agent. I recently downloaded an app which would allow you to connect to MSN Messenger using my phone. But I was wondering if it was possible to connect my phone to the Internet using my Bluetooth dongle, so I would not have to use T-Mobile's Internet connection, which can be VERY expensive on PAYG. If anyone has any information on possible ways to do this, or if it is not possible, could you please reply to this article, would be much appreciated.
Thanks in advance,

I?m trying to connect my Samsung Galaxy S III to my new Asus LX302L via bluetooth.
Both have bluetooth vers. 4 and I have successfully connected other units to my phone earlier but now it doesn't work.

I can "see" both units and they are linked together via password but that's it.
After I linked them together, the status information on the computer says "Not connectet" for the phone. The same information is the phone saying about the computer.
All drivers are up to date.

I want to use my phone as a remote using "Unified remote" and I also want to play music via the phone out to the computer speakers. This I have been able to do with my old computer (windows 7) but now it doesn't work.

What should I do?

Best regards,

A:how do i connect a bluetooth cell phone to laptops?

What OS? In windows you simply set your cell phone to discoverable in the bluetooth settings and then in your bluetooth places you discover devices. It should walk you through the pairing process from there.

Our school uses proxy that requires username/password authentication to connect on Wifi. Good thing is Windows Phone 8.1 has option to turn proxy on/off and sign in to proxy. The problem is after setting up the network connecting to it, my apps still can't
connect to the network (some apps for example are Facebook app, Skype, other 3rd party apps). The IE and Windows App Store can connect to the network though. I am currently looking for 3rd party app that can provide global proxy authentication so I can connect
my apps to the internet but I can't one.

I just a Bluetooth adapter, my 1st PC that has Bluetooth, and i was just wondering how do you send files from my phone to the PC.

The only way i can get it to work is if i right click on the Bluetooth logo at the bottom and click receive file. In my opinion it takes forever to send more than 1 file by doing that all the time. Is there another way... If i don't click revive file my phone can not find the PC.

A:How to transfer from Bluetooth file from phone to Windows 7

I am sorry if I do not appear to address your question per se, but personally I find that simply connecting your phone to your PC by a USB cable (usually provided by the phone manufacturer; definitely came with my Sony Ericsson) is way simpler and faster than setting up Bluetooth.

My windows mobile won't connect to my laptop (vista). The device seems to be installed as it appears in the device manager, also I hear the sound when I plug it in. I've tried my device on XP and it worked fine, so it's a problem with Vista. I've tried a number of times re installing the device and re installing the software I was given (Windows Mobile Device Center).


A:Windows phone won't connect to pc

I've had it connected to another vista computer and it recognized it straight away and worked perfect. The difference is in device manager it says "Microsoft USB Sync" rather than "Toshiba USB Sync 0700", also it says the drivers are working properly.

So it must be an issue with my laptop. Any other USB device seems to work, so it's strange why this is different

Is there a way I can download Microsoft USB Sync drivers? Every link I click tells me to use windows update.

My brother has an LG smart phone and was trying to get on the internet on his computer (Windows 7) through his phone but he forgot how he did it. He walked away for a few minutes then when he came back there was a message on the computer screen saying "Hi this is Windows and we see that you were having problems connecting to a network so we fixed it for you". And he was on the net, is that normal for windows or is it that someone got into his phone or whatever? I know micrsoft wont do such a thing but windows?

Not a good idea to put your email address in posts unless you enjoy bots sending you all kind of spam email.

What you are trying to do is called Tethering. Most cell phone providers do have this option but I believe technically you have to pay for it. There are hacks around it though. I know how to do it on my Palm not sure about windows mobile.
I would google search for: htc touch tethering

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 just got a new computer, Alienware MX14 windows 7 home premium.
It has built in Bluetooth, I have added my headset to the computer. But I can't find a "connect" or "pair" button anywhere. I have tried disabling and re-enabling the features of the headset, through its properties tab.
I had this headset working with my old computer, which before I got my new computer, was upgraded to windows 7. I was using a USB connected Bluetooth adapter, and there was a connect button when I right clicked it on the Bluetooth window.
The Headset I'm using is a Insignia Bluetooth Enabled Headset NS-BTHDST. It doesn't have any connect buttons. It just has volume and power buttons.
I'd like some suggestions on getting this to work...

A:What is the best bluetooth to get for a cell phone?


I assume you mean a Blue tooth Headset, if so prices will vary from how they look to who makes them and how long you get on things like standby time and talk time, i was bought a plantronics one by the kids for xmas and it works great and lasts for a long time and it was about 20.

If however you want to pose with a designer model then expect to pay upto 100 for one.

With that said when your phone is paired with the computer you can transfer file's between each other but to look threw all the folders and stuff on the phone with your computer you will need some software on the phone , with that said I use a program called Webkey for Android it works with the browser on your computer but I think you have to have your phone rooted to use it, there are other app's on the Google play store that do the same thing

Oh to transfer file's with no app . On your computer right click on a file that you want on the phone and pick "send to" and one of the options will be "send to bluetooth" (or something looking similar to that) and on your phone long press on the file you want send to the computer and something similar will come up . It's been a while since I have had to do that I can't think of the name right now. As long as you are paired this should work

hello all.

Ive been having trouble with my bluetooth connection. Whenever i attempt to double click my phone icon in the devices menu to view its bluetooth connection options, i get a message saying:

"an error occurred when initializing this operation. Try restarting your computer and/or the Bluetooth device. "

so, what i see so far:

-the phone successfully pairs with my computer
-each device can see each other

but they cannot interact.

the phone however will connect and interact with other bluetooth devices.

ive double checked many times, my drivers are all there and up to date.
(also used driver genius to check this)

also, whenever i start my computer, i always get the message: "ERROR: unable to start bluetooth stack service"

any ideas what's going on here?


my system specs:

I have a Dell XPS M1330, the bluetooth drivers of which were detected automatically by Windows Update during installation of Win 7 (Dell Truemobile 355 Module + EDR along with Microsoft Bluetooth Enumerator).

In XP, there was an option of 'My Bluetooth Places' from where I could connect using 'Obex File Transfer' to my Sony Ericsson W890i, and could use it like any other drive for transfer of files to and from it.

Is this not possible under Windows 7? How do I explore my phone via bluetooth?

I would like to use my Huawei G300 Ascend Android smartphone to get internet access for my laptop when I'm not within range of a WiFi hotspot. Preferably I would like to do this wirelessly (via Bluetooth or WiFi).
I have successfully (I thhink) paired my phone with my PC, but I don't understand how to set up a connection with my phone so it will act as a wide area broadband modem.
If I go to Control Panel, Hardware and Sound, Devices and Printers I can asee my phone under devices. It looks sort of greyed out. If I right click on it and select Properties, and then select the Services tab, no services are shown (see attachment).
A related question: is it bettwer to connect to the phone using Bluetooth, or using the phone's "personal hotspot" feature? Why?
Thanks - Rowan

A:Using bluetooth phone as modem

Set your phone up as a "hotspot" then on your wireless connections on your laptop you will see the name of your phone as a wireless connection ... connect to this which will then give you internet access, make sure your phone provider doesn't charge you extra for "tethering"

On my Vista 64 bit laptop I'm able to browse files on my Motorola Hint using Bluetooth 2.1 However on my Win7 Home Premium 32 bit netbook, I don't have that option. Both are using Widcomm Bluetooth software and both are Bluetooth 2.1.

Notice the difference in operating systems from the attachments.

I suspect it has something to do with the fact that Widcomm/Broadcom don't have any updated Windows 7 drivers.

Has anyone been able to successfully browse files from their phone using the Widcomm/Broadcom Bluetooth stack? Is there another Bluetooth stack that works better?

Much Thanx

If anything i would try deleting the old phone from the devices list and re-adding it; letting windows search for it and see if it works that way.

Okay so my friend's using TELUS for his cell phone service, but I'm using Rogers. He said he's limited on using the Bluetooth because TELUS & Rogers both "locked" it so you can't transfer certain files like Ring Tones - and I overheard some people saying because of this lock, TELUS cannot recieve any media files from a Roger's bluetooth & vice-versa.

If this is true (which I hope it isn't - I haven't had time to meet up with that friend to test), is there any way to unlock it? I'd love to share some pictures & ringtones w/ my friends. And put in some custom wallpaper on my phone too.

I hope somebody could enlighten me what the problem might be with my bluetooth communication. I have an x64 Business Edition of Vista on my ThinkPad x61 and my mobile phone is Nokia N95.

When I attempt to connect the two via bluetooth, vista attempts to install a bluetooth driver but fails to do so and claims it cannot find one, even as I allow it to browse automatically for it.

Is it possible that the problem is caused by the fact that Nokia hasn't released a 64-bit compatible driver (I'm guessing here)?

Another guess: Could the integrated ThinkVantage software (IBM) have an interfering effect?

I've downloaded every update available for a)Vista, b)PC Suite(Nokia software, c)ThinkVantage and d)Firmware for my mobile.

Thank you.

Hi, isn't the data/progress registered to your facebook account?
If you are upgrading your phone I don't see why you would lose data/progress.

Having failed to be able to update to Windows Phone many times I was using until yesterday on my Lumia LTE A Windows Central message made me think I should try again and I spent the afternoon quot upgrading quot Is it worth it The upgrading 10 8.1 to version player Windows Phone Windows Phone in music MP3 inferior process asserted so saying quot it will be worth the wait quot I'm not so sure My favorite app is the music player Near as I could tell they called that Xbox Music in and In there's a new app called Groove Music Evidently Xbox Music isn't available for Windows I searched in the Store and it wasn't there Groove Music has a new look but apparently I spent maybe minutes Windows 10 Phone MP3 music player inferior to version in Windows Phone 8.1 looking it over has very similar functionality The basic stuff Windows 10 Phone MP3 music player inferior to version in Windows Phone 8.1 is there My problem with it is the FF and REW functionality when I play my Windows 10 Phone MP3 music player inferior to version in Windows Phone 8.1 MP s More often than not I play hour long MP s If I'm using Xbox Music and I'm say at and I put my finger on and hold the gt icon it started to FF at a very modest rate but as long as I keep my finger on the icon the rate gradually increases I LOVE that functionality It does the same thing with the lt REW function In Groove Music I'm stuck with the one slow rate That sucks It's way harder to move to where I want to go in my hour MP s I searched for other music players in the Store but the two I tried were laughably awful same thing when I was running Windows Phone x I had some issues with Xbox Music and hoped there was a better MP player but couldn't find anything worth a damn from my point of view One of my Sansa M players the version firmware version -- there are two distinct hardware firmware sets supports accelerating FF REW but the algorithm sucks it accelerates way too fast Xbox Music though got that right it's perfect Last night I posted feedback to MS about Windows on the issue had to choose Feature or Problem could have said either I chose Feature Who knows if they will do anything about it I'm actually thinking I may use my old Nokia Lumia running Windows Phone for MP music using Xbox Music Sucks because I won't have data on it unless I pay for a nd plan

The phone gives me a word to unlock screen, my lock screen uses numbers. The screen has a yellow boarder around it.

I'm sure that there must be an app that prevents your phone changing screen as you pass it from one person to another. Even the slightest touch on the screen as you pass the phone seems to change it back to a previous screen or activates Cortana. HELP PLEASE!

When I connect my Galaxy S Duos 2 (and other smartphones) to the pc it show me a message "USB Device Not Recognized". I tryed to use USBDeview, update my phone, restart the phone and computer, to allow USB debugging, but nothing. What can I do??

1) Try a different cable.
2) Try a different computer.
