Preferred Solution: Cant connect bluetooth headset to Windows 7 laptop..

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: 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 have ASUS N751JK (Win 8.1) and I'm trying to connect Philips SHB7150FB to it via Bluetooth and it doesn't work.

Latest drivers from ASUS installed, headset is charged and on (blue light is flashing).

PC can not find any Bluetooth devices around, so I blame PC, probably hardware/drivers?

(or I'm an idiot and missing something obvious)

Any help is appreciated

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:My new Windows 7 Alienware won't connect to my old bluetooth headset.

This is not actually a "sound/audio" problem but some type of connectivity issue.

Dell has a forum just for Alienware customers for user helping user support (like this forum). That would be the best place to start since there are many users there with Alienware specific knowledge.

Hi !!
I am having a bluetooth adapter installed on my PC. Now I wanted to connect my Samsung HM1100 headset with it. It paired and everything but during installation of driver it says "NO DRIVER FOUND". I have tried too many times and I have also installed a bluetooth driver "SILICON WAVE BLUETOOTH DRIVER".
Actually its a dongle I'm having. So it didn't require any drivers but it won't connect to my bluetooth headset.
Help will be appreciated.

I've just installed a new Win7 Pro 64 on newly assembled PC (i3-6300, B150 chipset - if it's important), but can not connect BT headset to it. Installed gazillion of updates, installed latest drivers (BT dongle - ASUS USB-BT400) from Broadcom site -- and I can't connect my BT headset to it. It pairs w/out a problem, but once paired and I right-click mouse on it (in BT devices) - there is no Services in the menu, and - as a result - no way to connect. (The attached image is from my laptop, where it works).

BT mouse that I have connects and works fine.

Sorry if I posted in the wrong forum - please, move to the appropriate one, if needed.

A:Cannot connect paired bluetooth headset (+)

Hi and welcome to SevenForums,
That is sort of one of the perks of KB3172605

Known issues in this update

Issue 1

After you install KB 3133977, the software for Intel Bluetooth devices may not be fully functional because of existing software issues in the Intel Bluetooth driver software. These issues may affect Bluetooth keyboards, mice, audio streaming devices, and voice headsets. You may also not be able to pair new Bluetooth devices. Intel is currently working on an update to address their software incompatibilities.

If you require Intel Bluetooth support on Windows 7 before the revised software is available, the only known workaround at this time is to uninstall this update temporarily and then reinstall it after Intel has updated their software.

I have a bluetooth dongle from 'Enter Peripherals' . Specifications read that it works with win7 (no mention of the bit though 32 or 64?)
I have sony vaio all in one computer (Model VPCJ113FX/B) and I want to connect my nokia headset, model BH-503.
I have tried various options :
1 - I have connected the blue tooth device with usb.
2 - I have changed the computer in discoverable mode
3 - I have checked the device manager and bluetooth dongle is appearing without any issues.
Just to add, the headset is fully charged and after pressing it for few seconds once the blue light starts blinking, i try to connect it with my computer. the headset doesn't appear despite using 'add device' in the bluetooth window. my computer is able to detect other bluetooth networks though.

Pls help

A:Can't Connect Bluetooth Headset - Nokia BH-503.

Was this bluetooth headset ever paired with any othe device (like a cell phone)?

If yes, then you need to reset the bluetooth headset so it can release the existing pairing with the cellphone. Then try to connect it to the PC.

Is there any way to ease the process of connecting to a bluetooth headset? I have already paired it and it works fine, but when I restart my computer I have to go through the process of connecting to it again(including inputting the code) before I can use it.

I'm using Window 7's default bluetooth set-up.

A:Automatically connect to bluetooth headset?

I've got a similar problem in that my Plantronics Voyager 510 connects fine until I close the "Bluetooth Headset Operations and Settings" window (this is the one with the little diagram of the Blurtooth network and where you connect/disconnect the Bluetooth device) - at that point the connection to the Plantronics headset is dropped. This behaviour strikes me as totally illogical, but I don't know whether I'm doing something wrong or it is a bug that will get solved one day. Does anyone have any idea whether its a feature or a bug? Please see the attached picture for the window I'm talking about.

I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit on a Dell XPS 420 with built in Bluetooth adaptor.

I'd like to make a desktop shortcut to connect my computer's audio to my Jaybird Freedom BT headset. Right now, I have to go through several windows to get to a "connect" button, when it really should just be a double-click on a "connect" shortcut .

So far, my google searches have only turned up instructions on how to make a shortcut to "Bluetooth Devices" window, that shows your paired devices but does not have a "connect" option for them. So for my purposes that shortcut is useless.

If you know how to make a connect shortcut or have a link with instructions, I would appreciate it.

Also, I realize that what I want may not be possible. If that is the case, I hope Microsoft is reading this post and interprets it as a "feature request"

I have a surface pro 4, fully updated. I also have a pair of Revo bluetooth headphones. They also feature blutetooth calling capabilities (i.e. microphone).

I used to connect these without a problem. Recently something strange has been happening. Now when they connect on the headphones (i.e. stereo audio only) is recognized as an audio device.

Normally Windows recognizes headsets like this as two separate devices - headphones for audio and headsets for calling. I can confirm that device manager sees them both as functioning normally. But, as shown below, the headset portion is showing as disconnected. But there is no way to connect it.

I have uninstalled and deleted the device and re-paired it. Nothing works. Thoughts?

Hi guperan,

Welcome to Seven forums.

We would need to know which bluetooth card is installed on the system. You would need to install the bluetooth driver/software for the system.

If you are unsure of the same then, kindly update your system specs here by following this.

Also, let us know the hardware id of the bluetooth card installed on the system:

Also, are there any software which will simplify the whole process?

I've been able to connect my Windows 8.1 laptop to my phone for some time. But since yesterday I haven't been able to. The phone and laptop detect each other. But they don't connect. I tried to uninstall the bluetooth driver which automatically reinstalls at boot up on the laptop.. But that doesn't work. What should I do?

Hello, first post, hopefully not the last post.

Anyway, the laptop I am using is an Acer Aspire 5251. The website said bluetooth is built in. So on to trying to connect: I go to "Add a Device" and search for Bluetooth devices while I turn on the searching mechanism on my NXT Lego brick. However, my laptop is unable to find it. I know the brick's bluetooth is working fine because it was able to connect to my iPod and even an outdated flip phone. To you NXT owners: what can I do? I will give additional information if inquired.

EDIT: I feel like this is the wrong sub-forum, so please inform me if it is.

A:Trying to connect a Lego NXT Brick to My Laptop via Bluetooth

Nah, the forum is fine, if needed the admins will move it.
Welcome to Seven Forums.
I'm not Bluetooth literate but I know in Device Manager it should show up in its own category or Human Interface Devices maybe. Does the brick have any install media with it? I don't know what that is either.

Slim Divers might help you find a driver for the Bluetooth device. Be aware that it sometimes is buggy and will show drivers for non-existent hardware.

Hi @Sid3296, I have read about your HP 15-ac122tu Notebook and Bluetooth not connecting to your phone. Here is a link that might help.  I would check to make sure Bluetooth is on. It shows you how to do that under Connecting Bluetooth. A device such as computer might need to have the Discovery setting turned on. To turn on Discovery in Windows 8, from the Start screen, type Change Bluetooth to open the Search charm, and then select Change Bluetooth settings from the search results.  Please let me know how this goes. This is a great question other customers may also be wondering about; please click the Accept as Solution if you feel this post has helped you, or could help others.

I recently purchased these 2 items. Hoping for a headset for my phone and my pc. - Kinivo BTH220 Black Bluetooth Stereo Headphone – Supports Wireless Music Streaming and Hands-Free Ca - Mini Bluetooth USB 2.0 Micro Adapter Dongle

It worked perfect with my Andriod, but the Dongle does not seem to want connect with the headset. It seems the Dongle was not made to work with Windows 7 64bit. The bluetooth dongle will recognize the headset when I try to sync them, but will not actually let them connect for any audio. Here's a pic of the error.

I've tried reconnecting it multiple times. Been searching online for the past few hours for drivers and programs to get it to work, but no such luck. Any help will be appreciated.

Apparently the range is short.

There is a youtube video supposedly showing you how to increase the range. I found it puzzling. There is no dialog nor onscreen captions. The guy has a tape measure and a Samsung phone. I have no idea what he is doing.

Your best bet would be to disable the weak onboard bluetooth and buy a USB bluetooth dongle.

I have a SONY MDRZX770BT Bluetooth Headset which I am trying to pair with my Dell OMNIPLEX AIO PC. All seems to go well, until I bring up the 'SOUND' screen from Control Panel. The headset, which was reported as successfully added, and ready to use, does not appear on the screen of playback devices.
All related BT and sound devices on Device Manager are shown as working properly, and the headset appears on the Devices and Printer screen. I also checked that all BT Services are running.
I was able to install, and use, the headset on my wife's computer, so it is not a defective device.
I checked the SONY web site for possible driver updates, and no downloads are avaiable for this device.
Also, I had a previous (Philips) BT headset working on this PC, so the BT software seemsOK.,.

A:bluetooth headset

It is possible that the pairing has been corrupt. I would consider deleting the current pairing and then try to repair it to the phone. If that does not work you can try to pair it to a different bluetooth if you had a spare or possibly a friends. If it connects then it is a good chance it is a defective bluetooth.

In windows I can pair the headset but that's as far as it goes. I cannot select it as audio output device. I learned that for it to work I need to have an "audio sink" serviceat the bluetooth device. Unfortunately the only service my driver shows is "handsfree" (transleted, not sure if this is the proper english name).
I tried updating bluetooth drivers (various) but none of them made any difference.

I was looking at something cheap like the H500 which you can get off eBay for under $15...

A:Bluetooth headset issue

For Bluetooth headsets, you normally need too install the driver and software that comes with the headset. If windows update is having a tough time finding drivers, try visiting the manufacturer website. After you install, use the software to manage pairing, then configure the sound output properly and it should work fine.

I've got a Motorola bluetooth headset that I use with my cell phone and laptop. I'd also like my son to be able to use it with his Xbox 360. I've seen that they are now selling Xbox bluetooth headsets so I know that the Xbox 360 is bluetooth compatible.

However, I can't find in the 360 manual or on the Microsoft website any instructions on how to get it to connect for the first time.

Has anyone done this yet and could you share the instructions?

Thanks in advance!

Those headsets include an adapter to connect to the Xbox. No adapter, no Bluetooth.

I have a Bluetooth headset for my Motorola 'cellpnone, and my PC has a Bluetooth dongle that can plug into the PC to sync my Pam Pilot with. Is there a way I can listen to the PC via the headset over Bluetooth? They are paired successfully. What I'm looking for is the ability to listen to Internet radio or use Skype over it.

Does anyone know if it is possible to bond a bluetooth headset with both a PC and cell phone at the same time? I have a jabra b250 that I want to use on my laptop as a output only for sounds coming from my laptop application, but I also want to use it with my cellphone. Problem is, I have to re-bond it every time I want to switch.

I got a Sony SBH-60, Initially it got connected with the laptop using Bluetooth, but later days it wasnt getting connected with laptop hence i removed the device and try to pair again i couldnt discover the device at all.

My laptop runs on Windows 10 and bluetooth chip is from intel.

So tried possible remedies already like
1) Updating drivers
2) Uninstalling/ installing drivers
3) Changing Bluetooth support service (automatic)

Everything was done still the headphone was not discovered.

I tried to run Troubleshoot in Hardware and devices

I got this image
I tried to restart the system but still this troubleshooting was shown.

Hi all,

I just got my Bluetooth headset I had been waiting for...the Plantronics Discovery DSP 645. Paired it w/ my Treo and Thinkpad T60p. Everything worked great except when it came to the driver(s?).

I run Vista Ultimate x64. I shot them an email, but I'm betting on getting better help here. Do I even need a driver? Since it was trying to install one, I would imagine so. Everything else went perfectly. All the x64 Bluetooth driver sets for my Thinkpad were promptly installed. That's the reason I'm asking if I need a specific driver for the BT headset.

Should be awesome using Skype with.

Thanks guys!!

I'd like to know your experience. I am going to have to use Webex for my university classes this fall and they told me Bluetooth isn't supported.

We know that just means they don't talk about it and won't help you use it. lol

I found a link to a pdf on it. I am going to try to set it up tonight.

Just wondering if anyone else has gotten it to work.

Win7 sees my bluetooth device. It shows the services as available and (via checkmarks in the boxes) selected for use. But my headset never shows up in the Playback devices and no sound comes through the headset.

Any ideas?

I'm trying to make a stereo bluetooth headset work on my HP Vista32 Desktop.

I can pair it, then connect it, the device changes from speakers to the headset in my "Playback devices" window, but I get no audio through the headset. After about a minute, the playback devices changes back to my speakers
and the headset shuts off.

I've checked all of the drivers in Device Mgr...all are installed and working properly. I've also done
attempted updates on all of the involved drivers. I get messages saying the drivers are up to date in all cases.

It appears that the drivers (Blue radio & enumerator, headset in sound, video and game controllers) are installed
correctly, but the audio channel is not cut through.

Has anyone had in experience in this problem???
