Where is the Bluetooth option in Windows 7 and how to enable it?

Q: Where is the Bluetooth option in Windows 7 and how to enable it?

I want to transfer some files from my BlackBerry phone to my PC via Bluetooth. I've read that in Windows 7 the Bluetooth option is supposed to be in the control panel somewhere, but I didn't see anything. Anyone knows where it is and how to enable it?

TIA

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.)

Look in 'services' ... type services.msc in the start search box.

Personally...I would suggest that your possiblity of being infected...is the primary issue.

I'd be more concerned about that...than a loss of 1 Windows function. If 1 function is lost, who's to say that others functions have not been damaged by malware or removal of same?

Hello,guys.I have a LAN (cable) internet connection.Two days ago my computer slowed down,but the only obvious error seemed to be the disability to control enable/disable property of the internet connection.Apparently,though the connection was enabled and I could access internet,it's icon showed disabled.The only time when the connection icon showed proper status was immediately after starting up the PC.Since I have Kaspersky Internet security,I ran the complete system scan.Kaspersky detected two trojans and removed them.The successive scan showed no infections.I ran Ewido anti-malware with the same result.Still,I can't control the internet connection enable/disable option.I'm wandering wether it has something to do with the previously detected trojans.I would appreciate some help with this.Thanks in advance.

Hey All,

I'm purchasing a new SSD next week. I've been reading up on it and it looks like I need to enable AHCI in my BIOS. I can't find any option for AHCI though.

I currently have my System setup as RAID0. This was how it was set up in the factory and I haven't changed it.

The only option I have is under SATA operation and I can either set it to "RAID Autodetect/ATA" or "RAID ON".

Is there anyway I can check to see whether AHCI is already enabled? If not will one of the above options enable it?

A:How to Enable AHCI - No option in BIOS.

Some motherboards incorporate AHCI SATA automatically. In the early days of SATA there was a lot of confusion in terminology. "RAID" - "AHCI" - all the same thing.

For your motherboard it looks like you want to choose "RAID Autodetect/ATA" to use a non-RAID setup with AHCI.

If network discovery isn't staying on then you have a bigger problem than just enabling sharing which is done through the Advanced Network Settings at the Network and Sharing Center.

This problem has come up many times and is typically fixable by repairing the base filtering engine which is the actual cause of the problem with network discovery not staying on.

The following link shows you how to fix this problem.

You probably have it set to automatically sync, changing to Manual mode should fix it.

About Disk Mode:

iPod shuffle: Turn on disk mode before transferring files
When using iPod shuffle to transfer files, turn on disk mode first. If you don't, it will appear as if you have to make the target computer (the one that you're transferring files to) the owner of iPod shuffle; doing so will erase the contents on the iPod shuffle. Click to expand...

If all else fails, as they say, restore the iPod to factory defaults, I and my son just went through this on a 512MB shuffle, it works wonders....provided you have the files off the iPod, of course....

There is a Reset utility here:

Is there an easy way for me to change the logon option setting to Ctrl-Alt-Del? In W2K there was an easy checkbox setting in users from the control panel. And upgrading to WXP kept that setting. With WinXP preinstalled in a notebook, the logon screen comes up immediately from power up. I would like to require the intermediate step of manually pressing Ctrl-Alt-Del keys before the logon screen appears. I'm willing to reinstall W2K first and then reinstalling WXP as I also want to replace the existing notebook hdd with another larger capacity drive if I cannot find an acceptable answer soon.

My bluetooth stopped working in my ASUS Q302LA. Bluetooth doesn't even show in the Settings>Devices in Win 10. In Device Manager, under Microsoft LE Enumerator, Properties, it states "Device cannot start, Code 10." I clean installed win10 and am getting the same result, which leads me to think it is a BIOS problem. Any ideas.

A:How to enable bluetooth on my Pavilion laptop 17-e137cl

Hi, Sorry, it does not have builtin Bluetooth in the first place as shown:       http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c04092019 Option: You can use USB-BT dongle, which is similar to the following one    http://www.officeworks.com.au/shop/officeworks/p/targus-bluetooth-4-0-usb-adaptor-taacb75au Regards.

After power cycling my receiver, I only have the option to select stereo under speaker setup. When Irestart my PC or log off/log on, it shows the option to select 7.1 surround sound. I am looking at this by right clicking the volume systray icon and selecting playback devices, right clicking my playback device and selecting configure speakers.

My set-up: I have 2 monitors and a TV / AVR receiver combo plugged into a XFX 7870. My receiver is connected with HDMI to my PC and has 7.1 surround out.

I have tried blocking pin 19 on the PC end of my HDMI cable with electric tape but that has not fixed my issue. This happens every time I turn off my TV and receiver and then turn them back on. I shut off my reciever and TV at night but not my PC so this is a bit annoying.

Thanks in advance for the help!

A:Missing option to enable 7.1 surround sound. Only shows Stereo

Does it correct if you switch to the 2nd device in list and back to HDMI? It wouldn't be a solution though even if that worked.

A:nothing is showing in wireless option neither bluetooth nor ...

Hi: Did you install the W8 32 bit wireless and bluetooth drivers you need for the wireless/bluetooth combination card your notebook has? Unfortunately, there is no info online regarding what model wireless card your notebook has, so if you can post the hardware ID for the device you see listed in the device manager as a Network Controller, I will be able to provide the wireless and bluetooth drivers you need for it. To find the hardware ID, go to the device manager and click on the device listed as a Network Controller. Then click on the Details tab at the top of the Network Controller window. Now you will see a Property drop down list, and it will be set to Device Description. Drop down on that list and select the 2nd item (Hardware ID's). Post the top string of characters that you see in the window.

A:adding bluetooth to send to on context menu option

Hello Sara

You will need to put a shortcut for bluetooth in the "SendTo" folder.

The SendTo folder is hidden by default. If it is not visible,
Windows Explorer/Tools menu, click Folder Options.
On the View tab, click Show hidden files and folders.

Then
1.Double-click the Documents and Settings folder.

2.Double-click the folder of a specific user.
eg. C:\Documents and Settings\'User Name'\Sendto

3.Double-click the SendTo folder.

4.On the File Menu, point to New, and then click Shortcut.

5.Follow the instructions on your screen.

I'm not sure this is the right place to post this but I'm just going to guess that it is.

I recently upgraded my desktop from 7 to 10. I used to connect my laptop (already using 10) to my desktop via Bluetooth and it allowed me to select the desktop pc's speakers as audio output, effectively mixing both computers' audio through my headphones attached to the desktop. This is no longer something my computers seem to do; literally all that has changed is that I upgraded the desktop OS and I would have assumed this is something windows10 can do but the Bluetooth menu is almost comically unhelpful.
It used to be relatively easy to do this in 7 but I am at a loss as to how to do this in 10. Is this functionality somehow not a part of Win10?

Hopefully there's an answer out there. I'm a long time Firefox user currently using Version 14.0.1 on a PC with W7 64bit.
Since taking the upgrade to version 14, I no longer have the option to pin the shortcut to the task bar of start menu but have to be content with the shortcut on the desktop. When right clicking on the shortcut, I no longer see the traditional option of where to pin the shortcut. I've gone back as far as Version 10.0 but the option is no longer there either.

Any ideas on what's happened or how to solve this mystery?

From everything that i am reading there is only a yes or no option, there is no null option. How do I make neither button or checkmark checked? I want both boxes or circles left blank until chosen.

Hello,

Could anyone tell me the advantages and disadvantages of disabling cache writing on the priming HDD? Thanks in advance

A:Cache Writing - Enable or not to enable?

I think the default setting is usually to enable it?

I have a dim understand of it from memory. As I recall, enabling it provides slightly faster performance but has a slight risk of data corruption in cases of a bad shutdown--like from a power outage. It can also have consequences when using RAID.

The geekiest thing to do is to enable it, but use a UPS (uninterruptible power supply) to eliminate the risk from power failure.

Me? I've always left it enabled and haven't knowingly suffered any negative consequences.

I have one desktop (Dell) running XP Pro hardwire to the router. I also have a laptop and another desktop connected via wireless. I've seen all over the place that you should not enable file sharing. So, how do you allow acces from one computer to another. I've set them all up on the same workgroup.....what am I missing? I've been able to send print from the wireless laptop to the printer attached to the wireless desktop. It's just the folders I'm having problems accessing.
Any and all help would be greatly appreciated.
 

A:To enable or not to enable (file sharing that is)

Where exactly have "I've seen all over the place that you should not enable file sharing".

If you don't that is fine. But then you can't share files. Just a choice to make.

With a router you should be reasonably protected.

In my laptop existing OS is Win7 Home Premium x64.

Hardware config is
HP i7 Quad processor 1.7 GHz.
4 GB DDR3 Ram,
500 GB HDD.

My system perf is slow. I installed few softwares. I have deselected most of the startup services and programs from msconfig. Eventhough my system bootup time is slow, and whenever i open mycomputer it taking time to load.

I have decided to install Win7 Enterprise Edition x64 by formatting my C drive. But there is no option while i do clean install. Please help.

A:Formatting option while selecting custom option...

Hello ragavendrang.



I would suggest that after you have copied out or made back-ups of the data you need to save to external media you use Step One of this tutorial at the link below to do a wipe (secure erase) to the entire Hard Disk Drive, running this then using the outline in Step Two #2 to create and format a single 100GB partition using diskpart will get you a clean all and a chkdsk /r for the best possible space to install Windows to.

   Information

After you have made backups of everything you care to save and you want to do a real wipe "clean all" to the Hard Disk Drive (HDD) have a look at this tutorial at the link below, it over-writes everything, all the old Windows code including all the old Windows drivers, giving you the best possible space to install Windows 7 to; it goes hand-in-hand with a clean install.

I am not able to use netsh routing commands on WIndows 7. These commands work on Windows XP. Upon research I found that Windows 7 does not support routing commands. On Vista there was workaround by using "netsh add helper ipmontr.dll" and "netsh add helper ippromon.dll" but these commands does not work on Windows 7.

Can anyone help me to setup NAT on Windows 7. One more question, if NAT is disabled on WIndows 7, How does VirtualBox use NAT for guest PC to communicate with Host PC network machines.

Thanks

I am the only user on this computer, and am 100% positive I am admin. I am not a part of a group policy.

installed intel ac-3160 dual band + blue tooth in a Sony notebook system wont allow blue tooth to start.
also there is no interface available to connect any hardware to it, i know it has something to do with some Vaio software on the system.
it allows me to use dual band mode and it shows that blue tooth is present but disables it claiming interference with 2.4 GHz band. 
now i have had blue tooth dongles installed working while using 2.4 GHz band before with no issues, so i don't get the issue now.
any input would be appreciated.

Microsoft now allows Windows Defender to detect PUAs


Microsoft has recently added a new adware protection system for enterprises, allowing them to detect and block Potentially Unwanted Applications (also known as PUAs) on their computers.

But according to Microsoft?s own announcement, this feature was only available for enterprises, so consumers running Windows 10 Home or Pro, for example, aren?t getting it.

And yet, there?s a very simple way to enable this feature on any computer with Windows Defender, and as gHacks notes, it all comes down to just a few registry tweaks.

Before anything, make sure you create a backup or a system restore point, just in case something goes wrong and you need to recover your Windows install.

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
