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.)

Hello Nick and welcome sorry for the wait now mate some system specs are really needed here because without them we are working in the dark. Plus because we are working with Blu tooth which I personally find a PITA to work with specs are more important.

One of my friend in India purchased "HCL ME Sync 1.0 (U3) Tablet (WiFi, 3G via Dongle) by HCL" online . It says in many places that it supports Bluetooth but when I saw this I couldn't find any option for the bluetooth and don't know how to turn it on. Is there any one who has purchased it and help me out to turn the bluetooth on or how can we transfer files with some other bluetooth device. Even I couldn't find much good information on internet.

A:Hcl Me U3 tablet says file sharing with Bluetooth but don't know how to turn on the bluetooth ?

I don't see it listed in the spec sheet, nor the user guide.

On both of my android 4.2 devices, Bluetooth is listed after Wi-fi in Settings. I would think it's the same w/ android 4.1. It's possible the tablet doesn't have bluetooth.

I have had lots of trouble getting my microphone to work I have the same problem with different microphones Basically I go to test it in to work get to microphone driver - Soundmax my struggling windows or with the similar program that comes with soundmax and it Soundmax driver - struggling to get my microphone to work won t work Often I ll fiddle around with settings for a Soundmax driver - struggling to get my microphone to work while and get it to eventually work Now I actually have a lot of trouble pinpointing the fix because it seems to come with something I had already tried Anyway I fixed it again today and the thing that made it work was ticking the box by front panel microphone in the advanced options of the microphone in the record section So that s fine it works I come back a few hours later literally I haven t changed one thing in my sound settings anywhere and the microphone has decided not to work again This happens every time I get the mic to work - I come back to use it again and it is broken again So today I went to check front panel mic is selected TBH I can t remember whether it was or not In any case that didn t fix it So I m back at square one This is really very odd and in my eyes inexplicable It s also driving me crazy Thanks for your help P s I ve updated the driver several times to no avail I ve also updated the chipset driver I understand that s somehow related to sound EDIT I ve also had a slight problem with distortion with some music and in-game sounds EDIT I should also state that the driver for the soundcard came with the mobo ASUS - check my profile for exact type and therefore I presume it s a built-in soundcard But I have no idea who made the soundcard or what type it is - I ve just been installing the sound driver for my mobo on the ASUS support site EDIT OK I just found a thread from a guy with the same make of mobo and the soundmax driver he had a very similar problem Somebody found the following fix I FIXED IT The fix if you haven t bought a new sound card is to go to C Program Files Analog Devices SoundMAX and run ATIrem exe This will remove all the soundmax files Then put in the ASUS cd and run the quot Add New Hardware Wizard quot It ll find the sound controller and then you just have to reinstall it Once it s reinstalled go to ctrl panel gt sound devices gt voice gt volume and make sure mic is checked with the volume up Then click properties playback and okay Click file then advanced properties if it isn t already checked Then click the advanced button under microphone and make sure mic select isn t checked I checked it first then unchecked it VOILA the mic SHOULD work The thing is I do not have ATIrem exe So I m stumped Perhaps I have it but under a different name no idea really The only other things it could be are Devsetup exe and AEEnable exe But so far that hasn t done the trick In fact trying to open them does nothing one brings up a black box for a split second but that s it Perhaps that was the case with ATIrem exe but running them doesn t remove the soundmax files SIGH nbsp

A:Soundmax driver - struggling to get my microphone to work

Right I've done a google for ATIrem.exe (several people have had a similar problem - and often the above fix is quoted) and read through all the results. Basically if they didn't have ATIrem.exe (presumably it was on an earlier driver) then they couldn't find a way to fix it. I'm coming to the conclusion that this ASUS built-in sound card is unable to support microphones and that I need to go and buy a 'proper' sound card. The thing that really bugs me is that I can sometimes get it to work. My problem is similar to the person (for whomthe above fix was found) or at least someone in the same thread in that I could get it to work but once the computer was turned off or went into standby it would cease working. Well I actually don't think my PC goes into standby (that's when it ceases to have a screensaver and instead is just a black screen right?).

Anyhoo it's fairly unlikely that someone will know a fix, seen as so many have tried and failed to fix the problems of others in the same predicament. Looks like I'll have to go to the shop I bought the PC from and see if they'll get me a proper soundcard . TBH I doubt they'll believe the mic doesnt work tho, I'll have to take the PC in - again!

EDIT: (Kudos to you if you got this far) I found this description of a codec on soundmax's own website. You only really need to read the bold type:

Based on the highly praised AD1980, the AD1985 is ADI's latest and greatest 6-channel audio CODEC. Not only does it include all of the AD1980 features, but, when combined with SoundMAX4 XL, it will deliver intelligent peripheral detection and configuration features better known as AudioESP. Exclusive only with the AD1985 and SoundMAX 4 XL, AudioESP advanced jack-sensing and enumeration eliminates a common problem audio users face - the inability to get audio in or out of their PCs because of mismatched audio peripherals (speakers, headphones, mono and stereo array microphones) and I/O jacks. In addition, the SoundMAX 4 XL software suite offers users one-click control of the complete audio subsystem through a new and easy-to-use GUI. This combination greatly mitigates the risks associated with shipping 6-channel integrated audio CODECs down on motherboards and helps significantly in reducing end-user support calls, product returns, and the total cost of ownership of the audio subsystem.

I've absolutely no idea whether this codec would fix my problem, it seems you have to pay for it in any case (or it's not available). I'm having a search around for it though. Although once again the need for a codec is not consistent with the fact that I am sometimes able to get the damn thing to work! *sob*

Just wondered if anybody could help me with a quick question, i have my windows phone synced with my windows 10 tablet which is great, my only issue is that when i receive a Facebook messenger notification on my tablet, it first shows it as received from the phone and then again a few seconds later the messenger app on the tablet shows the same banner message, same sound - so i basically get it twice on the tablet for some reason and i don't really want that to be happening. does anybody know how I can keep getting phone notifications on the tablet but stop the repeating Facebook messages?
Thanks in advance.

Hello -
Just bought a tablet and ashamedly did not think to ensure Bluetooth capability. Trying to get an external keyboard for it, but it's a 'limited edition' (lol) of a Coby Kyros and I have not been able to find an adapter to connect 'hard-line' external keyboard to tablet. Thus, I thought maybe I could somehow install Bluetooth on the tablet...impossible?


A:Adding Bluetooth to Tablet

There are small (smaller even than the small network devices) USB BT plug-ins that will work just like one that is built-in. If you get one small enough, it also is almost invisible so that it can stay plugged in all the time and not get broken off or damaged when transporting the laptop.

Hopefully MS will shed some light on Outlook integration during the Windows 8 Phone event on Wednesday. I can't seem to find anything online about this. If there is no cross device Outlook integration with auto syncing, the only plus to a windows 8 phone would be Zune Pass integration. I love Zune pass.

Hi there
On an HTC phone there is an option to use this as an Internet pass through (or I suppose a "Virtual Router").

I'm late to the world of smartphones etc so this might seem like a stupid question - but I would like to connect a PC and / or a tablet at times via the phone's Internet Connection (since it's paid for !!).

Any Ideas anyone -- phone is an HTC using the Android OS.


A:Htc phone as Internet pass through to connect W8 laptop / Tablet

You will need to install the native Windows driver for your phone, I'm guessing. Depending on what model you have will affect what drivers you will need to download. They can usually be found on the manufacturer's website.

Then you need to enable USB tethering from the phone (found under WiFi settings). Check these articles:
How to tether your HTC EVO 4G -- for free - Computerworld Blogs

Get USB Tethering on HTC HD7

Then you need to set it up as whatever kind of network you prefer. It will usually show up as a LAN adapter.

Use this guide if you're interested in using WiFi and a tether at the same time:

I have an Irulu Walkenbook with Windows 10/32. Neat little tablet so far, but I purchased a blue tooth speaker that works fine our Ipods and Ipad. When I start to pair on the Irulu everything looks fine. I'm shown that I am connected and the speaker is listed in the blue tooth settings page and in the Device manager. I have tried up dating drivers, but pretty much all still show 2006 as the date.

Anyone have any ideas? They would surely be appreciated.

Is there one standard blue tooth that can work with most all cell phones?

If not, what is the best out there, where do you get them, and what price did you pay?


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.

Ask around the people you know who have one and see what they say.

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?

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"

As I understand it I should be able to link my new Win touch screen notebook Asus X e with my Android cel phone Moto Droid X so that I can quickly and easily exchange photos and files - I think I should be able to see the entire contents of one device on the other Anyway I've successfully set up my Bluetooth 'found' my cel phone paired it to my PC and & Phone Bluetooth Cell made the connection I can 'see' the phone on the computer Win says it's working correctly but I can't see anything on the phone on my PC nor the other way round I watched a simple 'how to' on Youtube and it showed a desktop icon for the phone and when they clicked on that it showed every folder on the phone and you could search through the phone on your desktop and request any file you liked to be transferred I don't have that icon nor can I figure out how to create it I found the shared folders but they are empty probably because I can't figure out how to transfer anything from PC to phone or the other way TIA for any tips - Obviously I'm overlooking something simple as usual Don

A:Bluetooth & Cell Phone

I have a different Android phone than your's .
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

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.

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. It it doesnt; then there could be a glitch with either the bluetooth adapter or with the new phone itself you got(as much as i hate to say that; yes it can happen especially in this day and age). So give that a shot and see what happens.

I have a Motorola Razr V3 and i want to use it as a dial-up modem for my computer via bluetooth. What I am trying to avoid is using Cingular's data plan, which costs money. Instead, I'd like to be able to use the dial-up access that I already have. (where you actually dial a phone number and put in username/password to get online) I'm aware that this uses minutes, but not on the weekend it doesn't I have tried to do this before, and get an error "no carrier" even though it appears my phone is dialing the appropriate number. I have att/cingular if it matters.
If anybody can help me do this, I would really appreciate it.

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.

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?

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?

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.

Is there a dongle or adapter which can plug into an RJ45 / Ethernet jack on one end, and transmit a bluetooth signal on the other? I'm no guru on the subject but a product like that would be perfect if its possible. Any help is greatly appreciated, thanks.

I have an older desktop PC with a Windows Vista OS. I'm thinking of purchasing a Tablet but I'm not sure it will work because I use a modem. I was told that Tablets come with a wireless internet card but will the tablet work if I'm not using a wireless connection? What will I need to do or what will I need to purchase to make it work? Sorry, but I'm not up-to-date on the latest technology.

A:Will Tablet work with a modem?

Depends on the definition of "works", But i am assuming you mean connecting to the internet. The answer is no.

All internet connctions at home use a modem, What kind of internet do you have? Cable company, Phone cable always on, or actual dial-up like old school style?

If its high speed, its quite possible your provider has a modem/wireless router you can trade your old one in for free.

If itsa skretchy modem type, I'm not sure what you can do, other than use free hot spots.

My mother recently acquired a tablet so that she can write Chinese on the computer. (She doesn't like using pinyin or any alternatives that I've tried to make her use)

We currently own a Windows Vista Home Premium (32-bit) desktop which was purchased in New Zealand.

She purchased the tablet in China, and it worked on various computers in China.

However, after installing the software successfully on the New Zealand computer, the software is unable to recognise characters that my mother inputs into the computer.

How do I tackle this problem? Thank you.

Note: The tablet is by the company 'Uniscom', if that makes any difference.

Run windows update from the control panel.
Check the optional updates and install the language pack that you need.

I am trying to connect my new Lumia 435 Windows phone to my Windows 8.1 Tablet PC via the cable supplied with the phone. It is clearly connecting as the phone is charged from the USB port. The phone is supposed to appear as a USB external device, like a USB Flash Drive.  However, I cannot get the PC to detect the phone so I cannot transfer data between the two devices.When connected with the USB cable the phone does not appear anywhere: in Devices, Portable Devices, Windows Explorer. The 'transfer my data' app says it cannot transfer.I have read the Microsoft articles on connecting and syncing with USB / Bluetooth. I cannot find any solution to my problem. Can someone help with this?Clayto2

Why wont my Win8 phone come up on my Win8 tablet's Desktop in File Explorer by a USB connection. It did once, but no more. Any suggestions welcome. Thank you!

A:Syncing Win8 phone to win8 tablet by USB connection.

Could be a couple of reasons.

Reboot your phone. Sometimes they just won't talk to each other.All USB cables are not equal. If you use the cable that came with your phone, you should have no problem. If you are using a different cable that came with another device, it may or may not work.

I recently updated to windows 10 but the Bluetooth is not working properly. It doesn't connect to my phone to playing music on my laptop.  I've uninstalled and deleted the driver from device manager and then reinstalled the driver from Dell's official site several times but nothing works. My windows 10 OS is up to date with anniversary update.

I just got a Samsung Q1. It's great except the tablet pc input handwriting pad doesn't work with word or excel (so, office?) OR on the search part of google. I can easily input URLs with this device and most other input fields allow me to use the writing pad. I used the pad to write this thread. It worked great.

any ideas?

Thank you, AMR5

So today (June 16, 2012) my stylus pen on my laptop has stopped working. I have a IBM ThinkPad Lenovo X41(T?) laptop with a stylus pen. Everything else is okay except for the stylus...

I try to wave it over and drag it on the screen (the screen rotates) and I have no idea how to fix it at all. Do I download something and it will work again? Help! (I do not wish to download things that require money OR disks, for my laptop does not have a CD cartage thing)

Also, if it was a key I pressed on accident (I think I did... oops?), what key on the keyboard will reset it back to normal? Thanks!

My daughters laptop is a 2-1 so it can fold in half and be a tablet. I recently bought a monitor and mouse so she could use it more like a desktop but when I fold over the laptop into the tablet position, the keyboard stops working.

I had windows 8.1, but upgraded as it was supposed to have a tablet mode that you could toggle that would allow the keyboard to work. I upgraded and it worked for one night, but now the keyboard always stopped working when I put the laptop into the tablet position.
I hit the windows key +A and the tablet icon is greyed out, but no keyboard so I thought it was a laptop issue. I read that there was a toshiba exe file that controlled this functon, but deleting it didn't work either so I am back to thinking it might be something in 10?

Please help.

The 2-in-1s I've been privileged to look at appeared to have a mechanical switch to turn off the keyboard when it was folded into tablet mode, don't think there's anyway to bypass that without physically disabling it by taking the device apart, could end up destroying it.

I run XPSP3 and a new Asus motherbd with Core2duo cpu. I also have a PCI card with 2 rs232 9pin ports and a USB to serial adapter. I have not been able to get the Wacom drivers to find the tablet through any of these ports.

The ports show operating ok in the device manager.???? The same goes for the paralel port scanner. The scanner and tablet represent over $600, I can't afford to buy new ones. Is there any way to make them work with the new computer?

I just got a brand new Lenovo Thinkpad Yoga 14 and the touchscreen was working great, but once I installed my Wacom Cintiq 12wx onto the laptop, the touchscreen completely stopped working. It seems like the laptop is confused on whether to use the wacom or the laptop as a tablet and I really want them to both work simultaneously. Has anyone else been able to get their laptop to work with a tablet? Any help would be greatly appreciated since this is the second thinkpad yoga 14 ive gotten since the first one did the same thing and I first assumed it was a computer issue.

A:Getting Thinkpad Yoga 14 to work with Wacom Tablet...

Hi banana74
Welcome to the forums.
Can you please post the full model number of your TP Yoga 14? are you using Windows 10 (64bits)?
I have tried my TP Y 14 with a Wacom Bamboo and I have no problem using both, the touchscreen with the Thinkpad Pen Pro and the Wacom Bamboo with his own pen.
Maybe what we can do first is try to update the Wacom drivers of your Thinkpad Yoga from the Lenovo support site of you model.

I use a Fujitsu tablet and chat on MSN often. Recently, I just discovered that my pen is unable to work in MSN for some reason or other. When I click on the pen tab in the chat window, it shows the drawing/writing space. However when I try to write/draw in it, my cursor disappears when I hover my pen over the space. I can't write in it either.

I have tried reinstalling MSN but to no avail. I'm quite sure it is a software problem because my pen works perfectly normal elsewhere.
Would anybody know the cause of this problem and help me out?
