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.)

A:Dell Inspiron 15 N5050 No Bluetooth Audio Drivers?

That sounds like a problem with the Vizio (no drivers) rather than a driver problem in the PC.

Have you checked Vizio to see if they have any Windows drivers?

In case it is a PC driver issue, make sure you have all the drivers installed from Dell.
Product Support | Dell US

BTW, avoid Windows 10 on this model. Dell has a note that they do not support Win 10 for this model.

I have the Dell Inspiron N5050 and want to install Windows 10.
On their site the statement says....
Product not tested for Windows 10 upgrade
Dell is not testing or developing Windows 10 drivers for this product.
If you choose to upgrade, some features, applications, and connected devices may not work as expected.
We buy Dell thinking they are the best, this is very disappointing.  Any ideas what to do?

A:Dell N5050 and windows 10

I have had a big Problem with the video drivers in windows 10 and i have even tried compatibility mode as well and the same results all i can say is put windows 8 on there and leave it at that until dell comes up with windows 10 drivers this has been the day from *** for me i have had windows 10 on here for a few months now and all of a sudden the video driver's do not want to work .so i have come to the conclusion that windows 10 does not work on this laptop as of the present time  but windows seven will be fine.even tho Microsoft doesn't support it anymore.and like you i am very disappointed in dell they have some of the best computers that is why people buy the pc's they have i have an older dell XPS that i have had for a long time and windows 10 works great on that but it has Nvidia video drivers not Intel.

A:Looking for Dell Inspiron N5050 Drivers for XP

If Dell Kris sees your thread, he/she may be able to help you.


Since you're downgrading from Windows 7 to Windows XP, I have doubts that the bluetooth and webcam devices will have drivers and will work.

You're lucky there are Windows XP drivers for the graphics and audio and ethernet/wireless devices - the primary ones.

So my computer has been running extremely slow. It occasionally shut down with the blue screen of death. Now it it wouldn't turn on at all without doing so. I ran a dell datasafe backup factory recovery on it and now it only boots to the windows error recovery screen. It will not 'start windows normally', I have tried using the memory/hardware trouble shoot thing to no avail. I have pretty much tried everything, beside reinstalling the os itself. Please help. My hair is turning grey.

A:Dell inspironn n5050 w7 trouble

If you have obtained all the data you want off it, the simple solution is to reinstall the OS on the laptop.

If you have not got all the data you want and you have family photos that cannot afford to be lost, then I suggest a local IT store to help out, if you don't have a bit of kit called a hard drive caddy. If you do go to someone, don't let them charge you silly money.

Drivers still missing are:

Thank you for helping out.

A:Dell N5050 Drivers for Windows XP 32Bit

As you have found out, Dell doesn't offer drivers for XP, but there is a chance you might find drivers elsewhere. First we need to find out who makes the hardware and their part number for it.

Open Device Manager and double click on the device name for one of the unknown ? or ! devices, then in the Properties display click the Details tab, then choose Hardware Ids in the Property drop down menu.

You should see a text string similar to this: PCI\VEN_10EC&DEV_8168&SUBSYS_75491462&REV_02

The four digit number after PCI\VEN identifies the manufacturer and the four digit number after DEV identifies the device type. The number after SUBSYS is usually specific to the motherboard or card using the device.

Do this for each device that doesn't work, then copy and paste the text strings here so we can help to locate drivers.

Just got a new Dell Inspiron N5050 laptop.
Using it about 3 weeks and loving it.
Pop up window invited me to update Windows. Clicked Yes.
While  update was in progress, I accidently turned it off.
Now, It boots up, but moments afterward, it goes to Blue Screen of Death and, before I can even read the Blue Screen, it goes to Black Screen and asks how I would like to start up - Normal startup - Safe mode - Safe Mode with Prompts, etc.
So I want to restore it to an earlier time or just restore back to the beginning (factory settings).
Can I do this in one of the start up options on the Black Screen?

About a week ago I began noticing online that on different websites and in my pictures folder of my actual laptop (Windows Photo Gallery) I cannot see all of the pictures that are saved on my computer. When I get on Facebook as well, some of the pictures and videos show. The other pictures don't show and videos don't play. It's like that when viewing any of my friends' posts. I think it may be something with my laptop, but not the internet. What can this be and how do I solve it?

You can use this to cleanup both browsers,

I had an interesting problem, and there was a previous unanswered, but CLOSED post that discussed the same issue here:

I wanted to add to this. It seems that through trial and error that the motherboard/power supply is shorting out on a screw on the base of the unit. In particular, the two screws that are NOT on the edges, but towards the center of the laptop. I left those out and the laptop runs fine. I put them in, and I have no power at all. No lights, no fan, nothing on either DC or AC.

Just wanted to add this info in case anyone else comes along with a similar issue.

I am need of some big assistance, otherwise I am rolling back to Windows 7.  I have recently reloaded and upgraded my system from Windows 7 to Windows 10 via free upgrade.  There were some reasons why I was hesitant on upgrading and now I remember why.  Every time I open up windows or file explorer, it abruptly closes out in with 30 seconds.  Same thing happens with when I click on the Windows starts button. I noticed that the home screen flickers 3 to 5 minutes as well.  I have loaded a few applications since then, but this was happening beforehand.  Has anyone run into this before, and is there anyway to fix this before I decided to rollback to Windows 7?  This has been very frustrating since I am trying to transfer files to and from my laptop.

Just got a new XPS 13 9343. Windows 8.1 64 bit.
I have a Bluetooth headset (shows BT508 under device manager). I paired it, but it does not show up under Sound-->Playback setting. It shows up under Device Manger. I connected the Bluetooth headset to Lenovo X1 Carbon, the headset works fine. The difference is the XPS 13 uses DW1560 Bluetooth 4.0 LE, but X1 Carbon uses Intel wireless Bluetooth 4.0 + HS adapter. 
Do I need any special drive or software?

Thank you.

It's the simplest way I could word the title. I was having some issues with my bluetooth device: Dell 370 Bluetooth Minicard, in my Alienware M17x. I had Bluesoleil and Widcomm drivers installed. I uninstalled both and went to the registry to delete traces of both Bluesoleil and Widcomm. Well, I also accidentally removed something under Bluetooth, without even thinking. Here's the problem now:

Instead of getting bluetooth devices, it fails to install driver software for my mini-card. Actually, it doesn't even recognize my device as Bluetooth. It shows up in Device Manager under "Other Devices" and in that tree is called "Unknown Device." I know that my device is probably screwed due to the registry edit, I'm just hoping the only way of fixing this ISN'T a complete reinstall of Windows 7.

Can anyone possibly help me with fixing this? If not I'll start the process of moving 400+GB of personal files.....

Can anyone possibly help me with fixing this? If not I'll start the process of moving 400+GB of personal files.....

My computer is an Alienware M11x running Windows 7.

For some unknown reason I cannot connect my Logitech V470 bluetooth mouse anymore. It has connected and worked just fine before. The computer and mouse are both brand new. When I check the properties of the computer it shows an exclamation mark next to the Dell Wireless 365 Bluetooth Module (the bluetooth radio). When I click on it this message is displayed in the device status box "Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43)"

The problem started when I sent my computer into hibernate mode, turned it back on and McAfee security installed an update.

There is nothing wrong with the mouse.

Hello guys & girls,

I'm unable to get the in-built bluetooth function working on Dell Vostro 1400 laptop. I have perused Dell forums to no avail. I have downloaded the machines bluetooth driver & have located a couple of patches via said forum but all to no avail.

I've uninstalled & re-installed the Widdcomm software too even via a direct route by drilling down to the folders in the OS in my case it's C:\dell\drivers\R140135\3100_216\Win32 & have even tried utulising the laptop's drivers cd to load bluetooth from that. Again no luck.

Anyway thanks for looking in & if there are some Dell engineers taking a look here then I appreciate any help you may have also.

Thanks in advance

Hi there,
i recently bought a Dell laptop, Inspiron N4110. They gave me a series of driver and installed those drivers on my Windows 7 Home Premium. The problem is, the first time my wireless device won't connect and keep informed me that the driver not install.
So i decide to remove all the driver, then using the device manager to search for new hardware, and let the system determine which driver is match to the hardware. Now, my wireless device can connect. But, suddenly my bluetooth device won't connect, and the system informed that the driver not install.
I tried to use the step as i did with my wireless device, but the bluetooth device still won't work.
Anyone, please help. Thank you so much.

You need to go to the Dell website and install the correct drivers, you'll need to use a USB stick/drive or the wired Ethernet connection to get those drivers onto the laptop.

Did you ever manage to solve this? I'm having the identical problem the last 3 weeks or so.

I know the battery is fully charged on the keyboard.

Edit: Mine doesn't mention Broadcom, presumably because it's built-in and not connected to a USB dongle.

I have a Sony STR-DN1030 AV receiver with Bluetooth. I've been working on this issue on and off for 6 months now. The problem was : I would try pairing the computer to the receiver for audio and windows would say paired, but would not connect. I tried un-pairing and pairing , updating drivers, all kinds of forums.  Today I got the computer to connect.. I found a Bluetooth software in the add / remove programs list in the windows control panel. I figured it couldn't get any worse so i went ahead and uninstalled it and tried to connect. It connected right away. I believe that the dell manufactured software for Bluetooth was in conflict with another software ; possibly the windows software that controls Bluetooth devices. I haven't noticed that anything else has bee affected yet.
BTW I am using windows 10 pro
any way It was very frustrating so i wanted to share this information.

I have a Dell 7710 with a Intel 8260 wifi/bluetooth card. I am trying to pair a Bluetooth headset (blue buds X) and it does not see the headset. I have the headset in pairing mode and the PC is searching, but it never finds it (or anything nearby).

My droid turbo 2 phone can see the blubuds and other devices near by. So I do not think it is an issue with the headset; rather, the 7710.

Also, on the 7710, I set the Bluetooth setting to "Alllow Bluetooth devices to find this PC" and my Turbo 2 does not see the pc.

I have the latest driver from dell. The card is seen in windows and shows functioning properly. The wifi works fine.

Any ideas? Could this be a driver/setting issue or just a bad card?

I did check and the two antennas are connected to the card.

You may need to reinstall the Bluetoth drivers . .

You can go to the Dell support site, enter your Service Tag Number and download the bluetooth drivers. Be sure to use IE and do not use the Dell Download Manager!

Just download the driver file, save it to the desktop and double click to install

I was on an online forum last night on my ps3 and was tired of typing in posts using my ps3 controller. It dawned on me that I could pair my bluetooth PC keyboard to the PS3, and I managed to do so with no problems.

However, once I went back to trying to use the keyboard with the PC, it is not being detected. I have tried to reconnect using the "Add device" function in the control panel, but the keyboard isn't being detected at all. I even tried the old "Switch off and back on again" but to no avail.

Try installing this. It worked for my XPS420 with Dell Media Card Reader with Integrated Bluetooth Module (CAB-200) running Windows 7 Professional 64bit.

I had to reinstall WinXP on my Dell XPS M1530, and now Windows doesn't detect the bluetooth unit. The symbol in the line with power buttons etc is lighted though. I have software from before, but could only copy, not install it. What I find works only in Vista. Broadcom's own bluetooth software does neither detect a bluetooth nor work without that. In the control panel there is no icon for bluetooth, even though Windows help suggests exactly that.

Does anyone know how to do that? It worked before, but now I can't figure out how, even after hours of googling...

Best regards

I was asked to re install windows 8 on a laptop. It's a Dell Inspiron 15 ( 3521 ).

It installed all the drivers except the wifi + Bluetooth driver.

The laptop cannot connect to wifi straight after installing windows 8.

When I run the exe, it gets to the end of the installation it asks for the user to switch on the Bluetooth or wireless switch ( It was one if them, I forgot which one ).

I look all over the laptop and cannot find anything that resembles a switch. I looked at the FN keys and there is no shortcut for it or anything.

I looked to see if it's under settings in windows 8 but the wifi screen says " no devices ".

The laptop has a cheap build.

Any advice would be really appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Hi Welcome to Seven Forums ... Have you got the QuickSet Application Installed ? If not Please Install it then using your Function Keys try to enable the Wireless/ Bluetooth Device by pressing FN+F2 or F3 before you Install the Driver ...

I cannot seem to successfully work Bluetooth on my E4300. I've tried countless drivers and various troubleshooting processes and still no luck.
The Bluetooth capability is there, I know, and the light on the keyboard toggles on and off with the hard wifi switch. I've searched online for hours and found nothing that has helped so far... Other than learning that it might be a problem with Windows 7 and its infamous driver issues.
And advice?
Thank youu!!

How can I find out if my Dell Inspiron 1545 has Bluetooth or not?
When I go to Device Manager in Control Panel, I don't see a Bluetooth device listed anywhere.
I've searched online, from what I've read some models of this laptop have Bluetooth and some don't. When I go to the BIOS screen, it mentions Bluetooth somewhere. Does this mean the laptop has Bluetooth?

I just purchased a Dell Blue Tooth Travel Mouse. When trying to connect it finds the mouse, says it has connected and then a window with a countdown clock shows and says click to confirm with mouse but the mouse will not work. I called Dell and after 1/2 hour they said it was a long process to set-up and would charge me $60.00, I only paid $14 for the mouse.

I am running Windows XPS2 on a Dell Inspiron 1520.

Looking for any assistance as this mouse is new and was only released a week ago.

Hi Ahsan Mughal,
The inspiron N 5110 is not tested with Windows 8.1, hence there are no drivers available. Please let me know how did you installed the Windows 8.1 and what was the previous operating system.

I installed Ubuntu 16.04 on my XPS 13 9350.  It does have the Broadcom wifi/bt adapter.
My wifi issue is the computer will not connect to my 5GHZ network. Every time I try it just fails to connect and asks me for the password even though it's correct.  I can connect to my 2.4ghz but not the 5ghz

My BT issue is I have always have to repair my BT mouse when the computer restarts.
I previously had a 9343 and I had no issues like this.  I was able to connect to my 5ghz network and using Bluetooth manager as a trusted device my mouse always reconnected at a reboot.  
I know there are some issues with Broadcom adapters but my 9343 had one and I did not have this issue at all.  Is it just because the 9350 has a newer broadcom chip so it's not fully supported?

Hello all
Until a few weeks ago I could use my bluetooth from my SAMSUNG S2 to my DELL INSPITON 1750 laptop.

I'm not sure if Ive done something when trying to install KIES... which I don't have a clue about but since then I cannot send from either.

My DELL says it has been paired with my GALAXY S2 but all sent items are FAILED!

Any help would be gratefully accepted.

Thanking you in advance .

Hi, try to update the bluetooth drivers. That might help.


1. Open Control Panel by clicking the Start button, and then clicking Control Panel.
2. In the Control Panel search box, type Bluetooth, and then click Change Bluetooth settings.
3. In the Bluetooth Settings dialog box, click the Options tab and do the following:
To make your computer discoverable to Bluetooth enabled devices, select the check box for Allow Bluetooth devices to find this computer.
When a Bluetooth enabled computer is in discovery mode, it broadcasts a wireless signal that allows it to be detected by other computers or devices. This is sometimes called pairing mode. If you check this box, your computer will still be able to detect Bluetooth enabled devices that are in discovery mode, but they will not be able to detect your computer.
a) To allow you to add Bluetooth enabled devices to your computer, select the check box for “Allow Bluetooth devices to connect to this computer”.
b) To be notified when a Bluetooth enabled device is trying to connect to your computer, select the check box for “Alert me when a new Bluetooth device wants to connect”.
