Bluetooth adapter issue - it exists but it doesn't work

Q: Bluetooth adapter issue - it exists but it doesn't work

I have a Dell vostro 1220. I recently upgraded from XP 32 to 7 64. Everything is working fine except the bluetooth adapter. The drivers are installed, it appears in the device manager but not in Control Panel > Network and Internet. I've tried different bluetooth stack software but the problem seams to be with the hardware. It just won't switch on.

I did some hardware upgrades as well more ram and HDD to SSD, all working fine. OS install went well, back up was fine. I'm out of ideas other than I broke it when opening up the laptop. I hope this isn't the case.

Suggestions?

Preferred Solution: Bluetooth adapter issue - it exists but it doesn't work

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.)

Hi nyler,

Welcome to Seven forums.

Please let me know which wireless/bluetooth network card you have on the system. You need to update the application and driver for the system.

Let us know the model so we can provide you the exact link to get it updated. Check this video which would be helpful in updating all the drivers:

Updating Dell Drivers

Kindly update your system specs here by following this.

Keep us posted with the results so we can advise you further.

So I got this cell phone that I want to try to connect with my supposedly Bluetooh-enabled laptop. Originally I attempted this after I had upgraded to Internet Explorer 7.0, but that was rife with problems, so I downgraded back to 6. Now if I open up My Computer and double-click on My Bluetooth Places, the "hour glass" sits there for a bit as if it is actually doing something; then, it reverts back to the arrow cursor and the laptop acts as if I never asked it to do something.

I am wondering if the Bluetooth capability of my laptop is gone; I think it must be software/driver related.

Ideas? Is there a way to reinstall the drivers that were there with XP (home)?

Hello.
I am quite new here, but I've been wanting to get this problem solved for a long time, and I haven't seemed to get any answer.

So here's my problem:

I bought my Asus N53SV for around a year ago, and it worked great. But for some reason something changed.
When I try to open bluetooth, nothing happens. And when I want to connect anything using bluetooth, it doesn't work.

I tried to do this:
[windows] + r >bttray
But nothing opens up.

Please help!

Thank you,
Karstin

A:Bluetooth Adapter Issue

I don't think it is windows 7. I have a phone and a mouse paired to a Bluetooth stick with Broadcom drivers. They paired at first attempt. There is usually a button on the base of a mouse that you have to press to make it discoverable. I don't know about a keyboard though, I have never used one. There is also a checkbox on the options tab of the Bluetooth settings dialog to make the computer discoverable.

Hi all!

I have bought a HP 6730b notebook (type: HP KU216ET), it has got built-in Bluetooth. I have installed 32bit Windows 7, but the bluetooth doesn't work. I cannot find any driver to make that working good..

HP Compaq 6730b Notebook PC*-* Download drivers and software - HP Business Support Center - here is a driver for XP, but when I install, it said that I have to turn on Bluetooth... I don't know what to do...

I don't know what's the type of the built-in Bluetooth, maybe broadcom, I tried this driver: Broadcom.com - Bluetooth Software Download

but there's the same message while install: Turn on Bluetooth...

What can I do? I have a bluetooth mouse, so I need to make bluetooth working good...

Thx a lot!

My Bluetooth keyboard stopped working with just one specific laptop. (acer aspire E5-771G-76QZ)Laptop says it is paired but my keyboard his Bluetooth light lights up when pressing a button (this means it's not connected to anything).so I tried the keyboard on other devices (laptop, desktop, phone) and it works just fine.When trying to delete the keyboard from the paired devices, it "installs" it self when restarting the laptop, I even deleted my Bluetooth drivers and deleted all the files with iobit uninstaller, after restarting my laptop, Bluetooth was installed by it self again and the keyboard was "paired".ps. I can pair my phone or other Bluetooth devices without any problem with this laptop, so it looks like it's a quarrel between the laptop and the Bluetooth keyboard.

A:Helix Bluetooth doesn't work

I've had the exact same problem with my 3701-33M. Sent in to Lenovo and it turns out the bluetooth device was missing. Pulled out another brand new one I had on hand, same thing, sent in, no bluetooth card physically installed. The build sheets for these device serial numbers show an asterisk next to the bluetooth device saying "or equivalent". Received my replacement unit under warranty and guess what? Also has no bluetooth. Seems like a full manufacturing batch went out without the cards even being installed. Pretty dodgy QC on these Helixes unfortunately.

Hi
I recently bought a new laptop (ASUS K70IC) that has no Bluetooth (BT). I also bought a Bluetooth mouse with it, Genius 905BT and an USB Bluetooth dongle, I thought that would work. But it doesn't. Other Bluetooth devices show up when I search for them, but the mouse doesn't. I tried that in XP SP3 too (desktop PC) but it doesnt show up there either.
So my questions are:
1. Does anyone have a configuration of a BT USB dongle + BT mouse?
2. Do you think it should work? (BT dongle + BT mouse)

I have this exact issue:

A Bluetooth device stops working, and you receive error code 43 together with event 17 after you resume a computer that is running Windows 7 from sleep

It used to happen sometimes on Win 7 32 bit, I've now changed to Win 7 64 bit and I can replicate it everytime I put the machine in and out of sleep.

The only way to fix is to use a different USB mouse to go into Device Manager and disable/re-enable the bluetooth device.

The reason for my post is that I requested the hotfix, yet upon trying to install it, I get a message telling me that it's not applicable for my PC?

Win 7 64 bit Home Premium, SP1, with all available Windows updates installed.

Any further ideas?

Thanks

Usually power state errors like this can be resolved through driver updates too.

please go into device manaer and verify the driver is installed and working.

Please go to start>search>type device manager.
Are there any "unknown devices" with yellow triangles on them?
Is you driver there , listed, and working?

If y our driver is missing, or there is a yellow triangle on it, you will need to update it.

I'm using Windows Vista Home Premium, 32-bit, on a hp Pavillion6000 laptop. The network adapter is a Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 2200BG (it was stock with the computer).

I've never had problems with the network adapter before! It completely stopped working on all fronts. I tried updating and/or replacing the drivers, but there's one error that I keep getting no matter what I do (besides erasing it all together) when I look at it under Device Manager.

"This device is not working properly because Windows cannot load the drivers required for this device. (Code 31)"

That's it! It doesn't work at all! It won't update, I already tried manually downloading / installing drivers from Intel's website, and it's still messed up! I've spent hours trying to figure this out, and I'm completely stumped. Any ideas?

Hello for everyone! My english is poor, sorry.
I've installed ASUS Wi-Fi USB adapter (model USB-N13) for LAN. There is Windows 7 Home Premium x64. Through control panel I see that adapter works normally and the drivers are the latest. However my PC doesn't see the adapter - the ASUS utility notices me "ASUS Wireless LAN card is taken apart from your desktop PC".

I have the same Wi-Fi adapter at another my PC with Windows 7 Home Basic, and everything works nice. Of course I changed these adapters between my computers. Conclusion is both adapters are working good. The same models, the same drivers. Actually I don't understand where is the mistake?

If this matter was already discussed here pls give the link. Or what are your ideas about this trouble?

Thank you.

Welcome to Windows Seven Forums.

As the USB adapter is seen on a different computer, but not this one one, you may want to check you have the correct chipset drivers, as they are needed for the USB controllers.

You haven't given us any of your computer specifications so I can't advise you where to look.

Even the computer make and model would have helped.

I tried uninstalling the antivirus (ESET SS 8). The wired connection is working fine.

How it started giving errors: I left it in Sleep mode for 2 days, unplugged. After this i did a restart and the wireless adapter was off. I turned it on using the Wireless Console 3 (provided by the laptop CD from ASUS), the wireless LED stays constant ON, although in Network and Sharing center, the wireless connection is Disabled. Re-enabling it from there it just says Enabling... -> Enabled but it still remains Disabled. After this i started applying the fixes mentioned above. Whenever i start the laptop now the Wireless is disabled and i don't know what else to try.

I don't want a definite solution, just..i don't know what else to try. Can someone help?

Hello Everyone, we've a Problem. After we've updated a HP ThinClient T610 to the newest ThinPro Version (5.2.x) it doesn't recognized the WIFI Adapter anymore. I've tested it with another one, but even this one doesn't work. Does anyone have an idea what it could be? Or is there a list with the supported WIFI Adapter on it? It would be great if anyone could help us. We should provide a solution to the customer. By the way: the adapter ist shown in the USB-Manager. But it doesn't recognize it as a WIFI Adapter. It's just there that i could redirect it to the session, not to connect to a Wireless-Network. Many thanks!Alex

Marvell Libertas 802.11 b/g Wireless LAN Client Adapter Doesn?t Start My PCI card.
I have installed a Rosewill RNX-G300E Wireless PCI card. I have attempted to install the drivers for it but keep getting ?This device cannot start. (Code 10)?. As I am using the Windows 7 professional version that is included in Win 7 Pro, this is a bit frustrating.
I can use a usb version of a wireless interface such as AirLink 101 USB XR adapter but I have the Rosewill card and want to use it. None of the sites like softpedia are useful.

Ok, so I've re-installed Windows XP (SP2) and after it booted up, I noticed that my onboard ethernet adapter wasn't recognised. So I went and downloaded the appropriate drivers (SiS900.zip) from the mobo's official site (it's a PCChips M848A mobo) but when I try to install the drivers, it still says that the hardware isn't functional (Code 1).

I've tried many different versions of SiS900 drivers but it simply won't work.

When I tried the setup.exe file that came with the official driver, the install would say "Update Driver for PnP Device Fail. Setup will exit".

That's when I simply forwarded the windows hardware installer to an XP folder i found in the zip file. But still, it doesn't work.

I really need help on this matter. Thanks in advance...

EDIT: Maybe it's worth mentioning that I re-installed WinXP over an existing windows partition without formatting it. I simply deleted the former windows installation files.

A:[SOLVED] On-board Ethernet Adapter Driver Doesn't Work

Have you tried directing the driver to install from SiS900\WinXP\netoem.inf ?

Go into your device manager, right click the device under network adapters and click update driver. From there direct it to the aforementioned file.

So I accidently bent my Belkin surf and share WiFi adapter on my desktop, and the internet cut out. I assumed it was broken, so I plugged it into my laptop and turned the wifi switch to off to test it out. Strangely, it worked fine. Then I attempted other USB ports on my tower, none of them worked. The strange thing is I can see all of the available wifi networks, but can't connect to them. I tried uninstalling the drivers, restarting, and reinstalling but that doesn't seem to work. The chip is fine, as it worked on my laptop, but it refuses to work on the tower.
Any ideas?

Thanks in advance.

Have an old asus laptop that i use very little. I noticed that when i type something ... nothing shows up.


I open up google. I type keyboard letters into google... nothing shows up. However when i click the letter F... it would seem to click on the top right corner where the 3 horizontal lines are located right under the X. The google chrome settings.


I then use my touchpad or regular mouse. When i try to click on anything like picture i have or video etc or icons on my desktop.. it would open up the properties. Does anyone know how do i fix this issue? Basically i cannot type any letter anywhere.

A:Laptop Keyboard Doesn't Work Very Strange Issue

Basically anything i click on does this... unless i click on start menu and then click on the program. Thus if i click on say avast or a program on desktop, it shows the properties of it. If i click on program using start menu... it does show up.


I scanned using malwarebytes. It did mention something trojan.something but i removed it. But this is using malwarebytes free. I have avast as well but doesnt detect anything.


Its definitely not number lock. I tried this.


The other thing that was strange was after a while... suddenly the mouse and touchpad it did click. But then when i shut the lid of my computer down then opened it up... have same issue. So same problem.


The thing though is i did recently go to certain sites where they have passwords for adult sites... and used it to log in etc. Could this be the cause of it? Thus i used a login and password from someone who posted free username/pass for an adult site.


heres another strange thing. When i click on tab... it would display all the windows i have opened in like a ruler... then each time i press tab... it would go to each window.

Hello I have an issue with my Medialink USB Bluetooth Adapter Bluetooth LIT Adapter's USB Is Bluetooth OFF? Light IS When Blue - Version Class Smart Ready Adapter Model No MUA-BA Let me explain Okay I have setup my Medialink USB Bluetooth Adapter with the drivers for my Windows operating system USB Bluetooth Adapter's Blue Light IS LIT When Bluetooth Is OFF? Now when I plug this USB Bluetooth adapter into my USB port connector on my desktop computer it automatically lights up with a blue light on the Medialink USB Bluetooth Adapter itself and on my Windows system tray notification area I get the Bluetooth icon displayed as ON Then I go ahead and pair the computer and my device s example a Smartphone to connect which they do successfully When I am done using the Bluetooth technology I disconnect the Bluetooth connection from each device and then instead of leaving your USB Bluetooth adapter ON with my Windows operating system I go into my Windows system tray notification area and select Turn Adapter OFF I then get the red Bluetooth icon in my Windows system tray notification area demonstrating that my Bluetooth is indeed OFF and the Bluetooth blue light on the Medialink USB Bluetooth Adapter goes OFF or is not lit any longer Okay so far so good everything is normal However when I shutdown my Windows operating system and then restart the computer at some later point I notice that the Medialink USB Bluetooth Adapter still shows on my Windows system tray notification area as OFF okay normal BUT THE BLUE LIGHT ON THE MEDIA LINK USB BLUETOOTH ADAPTER IS NOW ON The only way I can turn off the blue light on the USB Bluetooth adapter is to manually go through the Windows system tray notification area turn ON the Bluetooth technology and then promptly turn back OFF the Bluetooth technology in order for the Medialink USB Bluetooth Adapter s blue light to go OFF again I find this to be a real pain and chore each time to have to go through these manual steps to turn OFF that Medialink USB Bluetooth Adapter s blue light when the Medialink USB Bluetooth Adapter s blue light SHOULD BE OFF TO BEGIN WITH I would assume after the system re- start and leaving the Medialink USB Bluetooth Adapter plugged into the USB port connector on my desktop computer if the Bluetooth technology is indeed OFF as set with the Windows operating system settings then the Medialink USB Bluetooth Adapter s blue light should be OFF as well BUT IT IS NOT I have no intention of consistently plugging in and out the Medialink USB Bluetooth Adapter when I plan on using it or not but instead leaving the Medialink USB Bluetooth Adapter always plugged into the my USB port connector on my desktop computer at all times and using the Windows system tray notification area s Bluetooth icon to turn ON and OFF the Bluetooth technology when needed I have contacted Medialink Mediabridge and they have informed me the rationale for this issue quot The only reason the light would be lit is if the bus power from that USB port was running I they looked for ways to manage the bus power settings of the USB host but was unable to find anywhere in the Control Panel that would allow you to adjust that particular setting quot Makes perfect sense to me that the bus power for the USB port is ALWAYS RUNNING and the computer starts the USB ports are powered and therefore the Medialink USB Bluetooth Adapter is always lit at system start until I turn off the Medialink USB Bluetooth Adapter via Window 's system tray notification area Specifically the Medialink USB Bluetooth Adapter is connected to one of the USB ports on the front of my desktop computer The front desktop USB port connects to one of the USB pin connectors on my ASUS P Q motherboard Further I have an OLDER ASUS P Q motherboard that does NOT support Bluetooth as part of its BIOS settings -- PRE-Bluetooth capability Therefore I installed the software on my Windows Professional -bit and drivers that came with my Medialink USB Bluetooth Adapt...

Hello,

I have an MSI P6N diamond motherboard. I purchased a Cavalry 500gb external hard drive a while back. It can connect via USB or eSata. My motherboard comes with an onbaord eSata port, but the drive does not come up in post nor is it detected in Windows Vista if connected there. However, I also have an eSata adapter bracket, and the drive is seen when connected there. So is the onboard eSata port dead, or is there something I can do to make this work? I'm getting an external enclosure that also connects via eSata, and I'd rather not install another bracket if possible.

Thanks.
 

A:Onboard eSata doesn't work, but eSata adapter does

So I have my new external enclosure, and that is detected by my pc through the onboard eSATA connection, so this port isn't dead. I have no idea why the other drive can only be detected through the eSATA adapter. If it was the cable, it probably wouldn't work at all, right? If it was the port, it probably wouldn't work at all.

If you or anyone even suggests a dump, I will get angry. From what I know this is a known issue and nobody in the world gives a crap. Be the first please. 3 Computer stores did not help me. I was all like this "great for helping thankyou so much thankyou for looking at my pc ty ty ty. Now run Left 4 Dead 2." -Reply- "Your computer is finnnnneeee now, take it home, we dumped, should get rid of any BSOD issues, NOW HAVE A NICE DAY " EACH FREAKING TIME IT GETS THE SAME ISSUE WITH ANY GAME RUN IN FULLSCREEN. IVE TRIED EVERY SINGLE DRIVER. GIVE ME SOME STRAIGHT INFO IF YOU HAVE ANY KNOWLEDGE BECAUSE THE GUYS I TALKED TO DID NOT. I'VE BEEN UNABLE TO USE MY PC FOR 2 YEARS, EVERY STARTUP SOUND MAKES ME WANT TO PUNCH BABIES.
 

A:How Do you freaking solve atikmpag.sys BSOD Issue - hint, a wipe doesn't work

The last answer here http://social.answers.microsoft.com...e/thread/5f0aebb6-b9b6-4a5d-a622-97c62dbb3d66
says "This completely solved the issue for me. I can play all kinds of videos and could turn on flash hardware acceleration again with no more BSOD."


I had a similar problem (with my Gigabyte HD 5870), H246 videos would make my computer BSOD in win7, citing atikmpag.sys as the problem and just crash the drivers in winXP. Same with youtube videos if I had flash hardware acceleration on.
Solution:
The problem was that my motherboard (which is like 2-3 years old) had a too old VGA Bios version and the solution is obviously to update it.
Now both my motherboard and HD 5870 are from Gigabyte and this is how I did.
1. Download VGA Tools [email protected] from: http://www.gigabyte.eu/Support/VGA/Utility_List.aspx

2. Download the latest Bios VGA binary file for your graphics card. Now Gigabyte have their own system for their graphics cards names and mine was "GV-R587UD-1GD". Usually you can find this name on your receipt or on the box somewhere. Alt. you could install the [email protected] tool and it's display the name for you.
3. When you have the Gigabyte-name for your graphics card goto http://www.gigabyte.com/support-downloads/download-center.aspx and search for the name there.
4. Click your graphics card, Downloads, choose Bios under Download type and download the latest version unless it's a beta version. I used version F8 (on 2010-09-07). When you've downloaded the file, just unpack to your desktop.
5. Install the [email protected] tool and restart your computer just to be sure.
6. Run the [email protected] tool, backup your current bios file (mine was just version F3 when latest was F8 :S)
7. Click the Flash button and select the binary file you downloaded in step 3 and let the tool do its job and then restart your computer when it asks you to.


This completely solved the issue for me. I can play all kinds of videos and could turn on flash hardware acceleration again with no more BSOD.
I hope that's something that might work?

I am trying to use my CD-ROM drive and it doesn't work here are the list of things I have tried

Uninstalled and reinstalled the cd-rom driver it is a Matbleepa UJ-840D CD-ROM/DVD/CD-RW in my HP laptop (Didn't work)

Read stuff about code 39 and removed in the registry edit screen Upperfilters, Upperfilters.bak, Lowerfilters, Lowerfilters.bak and rebooted (Didn't work)

Removed itunes from computer (didn't solve the issue with cd-rom player)

Went back to a system restore point that was before the last time I used the CD-rom player and it worked and that (didn't work as well)

Read a lot of different posts about code 39 and nothing is given after the above steps are taken if it still won't work except to reformat which I would prefer not to do.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Bluetooth is the easiest (read "least hassle") way of transferring data to your netbook from an Android device. I got a "nano" Bluetooth adapter for my Toshiba laptop, it worked nicely. It sticks out approximately 3/8" (7mm) and was under 10 USD.

If you don't want to go that route, then you can use sync software. I use My Phone Explorer (free). Once you have it set up, you can access your Android device as if it were a networked PC on your home LAN.

Another alternative is to use a USB cable. Set your Android device to Disk Drive under Connect to PC. I'm not 100% sure, but I think that this allows access to data on the SD Card only. Not a problem on my phone as it saves pictures and videos to a folder on the SD Card.

I just got a Palm Centro and conveniently (not really) the usb cable to connect to my phone to computer isn't compatable with 64 bit systems. So I was informed that I should simply buy a Bluetooth adapter to "hotsync" my phone..blah blah blah.

after buying the bluetooth I realized that my computer was not recognizing the new hardware b/c IT isn't compatable with,..you guessed it...64 bit os...and then they say I have to buy another one. Now, I guess this seems like more complaining than a question, but my level of frustration is immense, so I apologize, but does anyone know a way to fix this issue short of the obvious(buying another flippin adapter)? I mean, is Kensington so cheap and lazy that they cannot get their "experts" to write a patch or update for patrons with a 64 bit system?

A cable wouldn't have anything to do with 64-bit compatibility. That lies with the device, not the connection method. If the phone doesn't support connectivity with a 64-bit OS, a Bluetooth adapter isn't going to make a difference.

A:Problem with bluetooth adapter

Welcome Bluking.

First thing to try, I suggest you hold the left shift key down and right click on a file, then check the Sent To menu to see if there is a Bluetooth option.

---

Very quickly, check the send to folder to see if there is a Bluetooth shortcut.

To do this, click the start globe/button and input the following line into that little search box at the bottom of the menu - replacing the word USER with your username.

C:\Users\USER\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\SendTo

E.g., if my username was Seb9, I would put:

C:\Users\Seb9\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\SendTo

Tap the enter key and a new window should open, with shortcuts in it.

---

If you do not see a Bluetooth one and you have bluetooth software installed, I suggest you run a repair on the installation, just as an idea.

To do this, you'll need to go to your control panel, go to "Uninstall a program", find the bluetooth software and click repair (or uninstall and reinstall).

---

Another idea is to check the Bluetooth settings for a setting to create a shortcut in the sent to folder.

____

With your YouTube issue, hopefully closing and reopening the browser and/or system restart should fix that one.

I have a Zoom USB bluetooth adapter (model 4322) installed with the included Bluesoleil software and drivers. I am using this with a logitech bluetooth mouse model v470 and Vista ultimate x64 with SP1 and all updates installed. When the mouse is not in use for about 30 seconds it disconnects. I try moving the mouse to wake up/ reconnect and there is a long pause (@ 15 seconds) before I am able to use it again. The mouse works normally on another system and another bluetooth mouse exibits the same symptoms. I have disable the power management in the drivers of the USB port but still the problem persists. Can anyone suggest anything sle which might help? Zoom Tech support has been responsive but the problem is really getting top be annoying

I never changed the default network card ever since I bought the pc, and I always used a dongle to use Bluetooth, but now I recently found out that my networkcard also has bluetooth. So, to my understanding, I shouldn't need the dongle at all.Although here's the thing. Ever since I bought it I have found no option to turn the bluetooth on, other than the dongle settings of course. And whats even weider (at least to me), that in the adapter settings it is called 'Ethernet 2', as shown here:The second line says: 'Networkcable not connected' Is this how it should be? My device manager shows the PAN Network Adapter, and it says it has drivers installed, so I don't know what I would be doing wrong. Laptop is out of warranty, so sending it to HP is not really an option.

I have an Insignia USB Bluetooth adapter plugged into a USB port on my WinXP w/SP3 PC and have the drivers installed, the Bluetooth headphones are discovered and connected, but it won't route sound through the USB adapter. I booted up iTunes and WMP and played music but no sound is forthcoming.

Does anybody have an idea as to getting audio routed through the USB adapter?

Thanks
