bluetooth does not work any longer

Q: bluetooth does not work any longer

hello I have a problem with my notebook. Suddenly 'bluetooth' does not work any more; I get the message that my USB is longer recognised by Windows. Some time ago I upgraded my laptop to windows 10.According to my investigation I have following bluetooth: 'Broadcom 2070 Bluetooth 2.1 - EDR Broadcom corporation'. My computer gives the message I can nog longer use the windows driver.I searched on the site of HP, found a corresponding driver for bluetooth buth at last I got the message it does not work. Who can help me ? Kind regards! Dirk

Preferred Solution: bluetooth does not work any longer

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 nlamont,

Maybe it's worth to try to plug it to another computer and see if it works there. If it still doesn't respond on the other system then probably it's already busted.

Windows 10 Drivers for W520 - Bluetooth no longer working I have scoured the forum for a solution to my issue to get my Bluetooth working once again after I installed Windows 10. Lenovo . . . do you have drivers to enable these machines to work with Windows 10.Or are those of us that have upgraded to Windows 10. . . now just up sh1t creek without a paddle (or support). For a customer focussed organisation I find the lack of 'support' not that reassuring.Thinkpad was once reverred . . . I'm now beginning to seriously question this as no solution is easily identifiable when Win10 has been out quite some time now. Can some offer some assitance.

Alright guys, I have just refreshed my pc because I was having numerous problems with it and it turned out to be a bad stick of RAM. However, now I am having software issues. Whenever I try to make a call on the desktop version of skype, the program crashes. Whenever I try to open HP support assistant, the program crashes. When i am using the metro app version of skype I get a weird artifacting type problem on any of the buttons. I have this same problem in internet explorer and on Netflix. Netflix will not play on Chrome. It will play on IE, but with the button artifacting problems. My computer will not pair via bluetooth with my phone. What would be your recommended course of action? I don't know where to begin. I have tried updating drivers and the like but it has not helped.

Thank you

Anyone else encountered and solved this problem? I upgraded about 2.5 weeks ago and have looked everywhere for a solution. I finally got the wireless radio settings to apear when I press Fn+F5 but no bluetooth option exists. Today when I decided I had wasted enough time and tried to go back to Windows 7, it won't let me even though I still have Windows.old and it is whin the 30 day window. I feel stuck. I like Windows 10 but not having bluetooth makes me wish I would have left well enough alone and stayed with Windows 7. Anyone have a fix for either of these problems?

As a test, I brought home a wireless mouse (2.4Ghz, with dongle) from work and that wakes the computer just fine. It is only the Bluetooth devices that are no longer waking the computer since upgrading to Windows 8.1. Hope that helps narrow it down.

After loading a map for the game Battlefield 2, my computer crashed and started rebooting... I played the game again and after loading it crashed again, this time comming up with some "AMI" or something, menu. It had a check list saying that everything was "OK" and at the bottom it said hit F1 for Setup or F2 to continue with default settings. I hit F2 and everything was as normal except my USB mouse wasn't working. I plugged in an Ipod to test if it was the mouse and the Ipod did not work through the USB port either. All 4 ports don't work. The mouse worked on another computer.

Does anyone have any idea for what I should do? I already went to device manager and uninstalled all the USB devices and reinstalled them.

Help !!

After I came back from the Memorial Day week-end (not the 4th), several programs no longer work. My first sign that something was wrong was when McAfee indicated a problem. After two weeks of going back and forth with their support group, I found several other problems - all of which I beleive are related in some way shape or form.

In summary, the following programs/activities no longer work: Windows Update, Disk Defragmentor, the Search function in My Computer

At the moment, McAfee is completely removed from my system and I am running 4 versions of spyware prevention/virus prevention and zone alarm.

My system is a Dell 8400 using Windows XP SP2.

Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated.

This problem recently occurred on my Toshiba Satellite C655 running Windows 7.  Some links that used to work on web pages no longer do.  When I hover on them on them I get the index finger (IE 11), but the bottom left of the screen shows javascript:void(0);.  The identical thing happens with IE 11, and the most recent updates of Firefox and Chrome.  Everything still works properly on a second computer I have, a Dell Inspiron 660s running Windows 8.  Both computers are using Java update 51.
I went back to a system restore point that predated the problem.  After that, I uninstalled and reinstalled the current Java and Firefox browser.  I scanned the system with AVG Free and Malwarebytes, neither reported any probem.  None of these actions fixed the problem.  What do I do next?

I was installing some programs for my ipod touch and after installing something called libUSB, both my USB mouse and USB Receiver for my Logitech LX710 Wireless keyboard just turned off and stopped working. I am using Windows 7, and XP on the other partition.

How do I fix this when I cannot even use my keyboard or mouse?

A:USB Devices No Longer Work

Hi LiquidDragon.
First thing I would try to do would be to boot into safe mode.
If that doesn't work (i.e. you mouse and keyboard still are not working), then get out your installation DVD (I would use XP for this is I were you given that Win7 is not released yet) and boot from it. You should have the option to do a system restore to a restore point previous to the installation of libUSB.
Sorry if this is obvious to you but you didn't say if you had given that a go. :)
good luck.

This is my 1st question/posting (actually I posted a similar question on the wrong board), so please bear with me. I have Vista, and explorer 7. I did at one time try explorer 8, but didn't like it. So I removed it. Bottom line, I now notice that I can't open most of "my favorites" from the list I created. I tried to re-install 7 again, but didn't work.

Also, On Internet Exporer I can't create a shortcut on my desktop

Is this some kind of virus, malware? How the heck do you get it back to normal ... PLEASE HELP??

Thank you.


A:PLEASE HELP ... My Favorites NO Longer Work

Please don't create multiple threads about the same issue. It gets confusing for those of us trying to help you, and in fact it's against the forum rules. If you need to change something in your original post you can use the "edit" button at the bottom, and feel free to use the words "EDIT:" or something similar so that we know you changed something. The forum will automatically note when you made your changes.

Seeing as somebody else already replied to your other thread I'm going to request that this one be removed.

A:Bluetooth won't work

Hello and welcome.
Well, your English was not that bad. I could still follow you basically.

Since you were able to connect the phone to the USB dongle, (correct?) then that means everything should be alright with the phone.

I believe the first thing you may need to do is click "Add a Device" to let them detect & identify each other. Once there is a profile created, then the next time you want to connect maybe click "Allow a Device to Connect." Try that and see if it works.

My daughter recently gave me her old Palm Treo 650 cellphone. Apparently it is too old to "speak" (sync) with Windows 7 64 bit using their software but it can be done using bluetooth. The phone is bluetooth enabled and has an infared port, but my computer is lacking -- something -- to make the connection...what do I need? a USB dongle-thing? Something else?

A:What do I need for bluetooth to work?

Bluetooth is just a connection method. If it can't sync with Windows 7 64-bit using a USB sync cable, that isn't fixed by syncing with Bluetooth. You still need the Palm Desktop software or (maybe?) Outlook (not Windows Mail). If you want to attempt to connect the phone to the computer with Bluetooth, you need a Bluetooth USB dongle for your computer. I've never had much luck with Bluetooth data connections. Given the age of the device, the challenges are magnified.

Acer laptops dont always come with the bluetooth modules installed, there sometimes sold as 'Bluetooth Ready' meaning you can buy an additional module for it. If you have a look for the exact model number underneath, I'll have a look about for you to see if it comes with one already installed.

I have a Dell 8400 running Win XP sp2 that no longer recognizes either of the DVD drives (samsung and philipps). In My Computer the drives simply do not appear. I have reloaded the drivers, reseated the cables, deleted them from device manager -- and still NOTHING!

They do show up in Device Manager with error symbols. I have also been able to boot from the DVD using ERD commander so I know they work. I just can't get Windows XP to understand that.

Anyone have a clue what I need to do next aside from formating C: and reinstalling?

Suddenly one day, several of our flash drives stopped showing up on our PC. When I attempt to use it, the computer recognizes something, because it beeps like normal--but nothing appears. Nothing appears under My Computer and nothing at the lower right portion of the screen. I have tried to search for my flash drive, and nothing comes up there either. This is the same for every flash drive I own. They all do the same thing. These same flash drives work on any other computer, so they must not be the problem. Any ideas? Thanks!

To me, it sounds like the USB drivers need to be updated. You would need to go to your control panel and then your hardware, then device manager, from there, find the USB ports, and double-click then say "update driver." I could be wrong, but it doesn't harm anything to check this.

One of my favorite things about firefox no longer works. The "Undoclosed Tab" function. None of the shortcuts for the function no longer works neither does the button that comes with firefox. I'm pretty sure it stopped working after I uninstalled the "Tab Mix Plus" extension which I think has its own "Undo closed tab" function of sumthing. Anyways, i didn't really like the extension so i got rid of it. Can anyone tell me how to fix this?

If it helps, for some reason, under the history menu in firefox, it no longer shows my history... The recently closed tabs option is grayed out and where it use to show the history, it says "Show history in sidebar." My history is saved and it does show up in the sidebar, just no in that menu.

Re-install Tab Mix Plus (which I think is a great extension) or just use the Undo Closed Tab extension. This function is not default with Firefox yet although I haven't thoroughly checked Minefield but I will soon. Let me know if I've got it wrong!

You didn't say what version you were using but this sounds like you could be using Minefield or Gran Paradiso which has some Places functionality and some basic support from the old system. As far as I'm aware the History part hasn't been resurrected yet. Sorry if I sound a bit vague, I've been away a while and I got some catching up to do.

Hi all,

urgent advice appreciated here folks.

I built a core2quad rig for 3d rendering with an Abit AW9D Max board on XP Pro 64-bit 2 months ago.
Yesterday everything was fine. Today none of the usb ports are responding in the way i'd like.
The 2 case ports on the front don't work.
The usb keyboard & mouse stopped working as did the usb dongle we use for vray rendering.

I've done a system restore to early yesterday, no luck.
I've deleted all the usb devices in device manager, rebooted and let it re-install them. Still no joy.
Overclockers tech support, suggest a reformat, but is there anything else you guys could suggest, as i really don't want to reformat yet due to time constraints. It may even be hardware which means RMA'ing it for a weeks downtime.

reconnect your USB wires internally. Ensure your BIOS is up to date.
After that it has to either be a bad wire(s) or faulty mobo.

Ok so I was stupidly messing around in regedit deleting upper and lower filters because I wanted to fix my cd rom drive that wasn't being detected. While I fixed the cd problem, I deleted too many upper and lower filters, and now my keyboard and mouse don't work. I have tried a wireless usb keyboard and mouse and I have tried the really old kind, with the purple and green plug ins. Both let me go to the bios and stuff, and those sort of places, but at soon as the computer goes to the desktop, they both become completely unresponsive. I have tried booting into safe mode and that failed too. Does anyone have ANY idea at all of what to do?

I have finally resolved my own problem. After installing the updates to Nero 6.0 to raise it to the current version of 6.6, I tried capturing the video. The new version of Nero offers to do a scan of your hardware to make sure it is able to work with it. Much to my surprise, it posted a notice that I could not capture at the resolution and frame rate I was attempting to and then displayed a complete list of resolutions and fps rates that were compatible. It appears I cannot capture in RGB24 @ 29.97 fps. I have to capture in YUY555 or other YUY format. Thinking back I could recall that YUY was always how I captured. I was trying to capture in RGB24 so I could run a denoise and deinterlacing program to clean up the captured video and it would only work if the video was capture as AVI uncompressed and RGB24. Guess now I'll need to find a filter that will deinterlace AVI video in YUY format.

My fingerprint sensor does not work any longer after update to Win10-64 Version 1607. I am using the latest Win10 build, the latest BIOS Version 1.15 and the latest version of the fingerprint sensor driver (Synaptics Metallica Touch Fingerprint Driver) Version 5.1.311.26 from 14.7.2016. Uninstalling the driver completely and re-installing it helped for one reboot to re-activate it, but this is no stable state, the fingerprint sensor is unavailable after the next reboot. Surprisingly the fingerprint sensor is still offered as a logon option, although iinactive. Soon thereafter there is a message during the final stage of the reboot ('there has been a problem...') and it's completely gone and completely gone. Obviously Win10-64 Version 1607 and the fingerprint driver does not like each other. Any solutions available?

It says it is connected, however nothing works. Ive tried using a Flashdrive and it works fine. Ive also tried with 3 different mice with the same result.
Im guessing it has to do with a driver i have recently downloaded from windows update, however, i have restored my computer as far back as i can go, and it still dosnt work. Any ideas?

I have been trying for the last few days to figure it out but w/o any luck? My 5520 has something called Stage and I tried that but again it will not show the speaker?

I have a CSR bluetooth dongle. It initially worked but has stopped recently. It connects to a Nokia E71 phone.

In my Device Manager there is an entry "CSR Bluetooth Radio" under "Bluetooth radios", and under "Other devices" there are four entries titled "Bluetooth Peripheral Device". Presumably there is no suitable driver.

I applied the update "CSR plc - Audio - Bluetooth Remote Control Device" on the 19.1.10. Maybe this is the source of the problem???

I tried inserting another bluetooth device but have had exactly the same problem with it.

I've managed to connect to my phone with Ubuntu Linux on the same hardware - connected to the same phone.

I've tried setting the phone up as a new bluetooth device with the same result. I've also tried uninstalling all of the bluetooth drivers and reinstalling them - no joy.
