My bluetooth doesn't work. bttray doesn't open.

Q: My bluetooth doesn't work. bttray doesn't open.

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

Preferred Solution: My bluetooth doesn't work. bttray doesn't open.

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 Karstin,

Welcome to Seven Forums.

You would need to re-install Bluetooth software/driver for your system. Please check the link below for finding out the drivers:

Hi ... Welcome to Seven Forums ... What is the Model Number of your Laptop ? ...

Did you buy the Laptop from new ? ...
Did you mean Windows 7 x86 ?...
If your System Specs are correct you have 4 GB of ram ? ...
If that is the case your Windows should be 64 Bit ...

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!

UPDATE: PROBLEM SOLVED

A:Bluetooth doesn't work

Look in "Services" and see if it's enabled.

Go back to Services and right click on the Bluetooth support service and double click on it.
 
When the Bluetooth support service properties open look to see what the startup type is, then click on Start in the the Service status.

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.

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

A:Bluetooth doesn't work after resuming from S3

Usually power state errors like this can be resolved through driver updates too.
Have you pursued seeking driver updates via the company that provided the device?

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)

A:Bluetooth mouse doesn't work

Have you put your mouse into the "Discovery Mode"?

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?

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.

A:HELP: power option doesn't work - screen saver doesn't start!

This is another case of factory bloatware interfering - in this case a useless factory utility overriding Win7's superior built-in version.

Googling the Quiet Office feature of Asus there are multiple reported problems. Best to default to the Win7 built-in Power Options in Control Panel. Set up a Balanced Plan unless you're a gamer then use High Performance.

Here are other tips for cleaning up factory bloatware

My laptop did not come with a Windows Vista CD/Recovery disk

My first priority is to recover a few files in the laptop - if I am able to do this, then I dont mind junking the laptop

Since this is an old laptop, I would prefer not to use an expensive professional to recover the data

Any help/suggestions would be much appreciated!

For the last month or so, every time I log off my account, the keyboard does not register at the Windows Log In screen. This makes it so I have to restart the computer and then it works fine.
There are three accounts on the computer, the casing has been half removed for the last 3 months, a DVD burner and driver recently installed 3 months ago and I am using a wireless off brand USB keyboard and mouse.
OS: Windows Xp Home Edition 5.1.2600 Service Pack 3
As for the second part, the computer requires several restarts to boot up, sometimes up to twenty minutes of turning on and off to boot up. Only started doing this a week ago.

A:My Keyboard doesn't work, and the computer turns on but doesn't start.

It sounds like something is wrong with your Windows XP drivers. Something like that happened to me while building my computer, and when I boot up the keyboard did not work because my copy of windows XP was bad. You could try reinstalling windows XP, and It might work better, but I dont have a definite answer to your problem.

Hello I have Gigabytes GN-BR01G router and I have installed Real VNC and configured it to port5900 and I opened the proper ports (5500,5800 and 5900), and I've even tried to set my computer as a DMZ host. As far as I know I have configured the ports correctly I even tried to use my private ip instead of my WAN ip but it doesn't work.

Hi, ive just started working on a new computer.

It had ie6 installed and the ctrl N function does not work, it opens a new window but always closes the original one.

I've since downloaded ie7 and the problem is still the same. I also have firefox installed, and the ctrl N function works perfectly on firefox.

Anybody know how I can fix this?

Have a friend with a relatively new Lenovo laptop using Windows XP SP3. Overnight he can't access the Internet via browsers, email or AIM. His desktop connected to the same router is working fine.

He can access the router by IP address using either IE7 or FireFox 3.5. Anything that needs a DNS server doesn't work. This does say though that he has a working connection to the router.

He's run MalWareBytes and his own McAffee software looking for bad stuff but has found nothing.

Running "ipconfig /all" from the command prompt gives exactly the same results for the laptop as his working desktop. The DNS servers are there. He can ping the DNS servers using their IP addresses. He is being assigned a proper local network address so DHCP is working on the router.

Any thoughts on where to look next to discover why the Internet applications don't seem to be able to find the DNS servers?

A:Can't Access Websites, Email doesn't work and no AIM doesn

FWIW, my friend took his laptop to a PC shop. Their diagnosis was malware. I don't know the identity of the malware. Anyway, the shop saved his data then formatted and reloaded XP SP3.

Basically nothing happens, the dialog never opens an in my mail is not possible to upload files.. nothing, the common dialog to handle files never opens. I tried to type sfc/scannow in DOS mode (cmd) hoping utility will fix it. But didn?t work because it said that I must be the administrator but the problem is that I am the administrator (I am the only user and register as admin). What is wrong? What can I do?

Welcome to Seven Forums fernandoluis. You must run the cmd prompt as admin

Hi, an often reported issue- tho' yours has the added run box report.
As I don't know the history... as in 'did this ever work' 'is it a clean install or an upgrade' 'what did you do before this happened' etc I'll take a simple view.

I will assume you don't use disk imaging, else you would have restored an image you'd created prior to this happening. Highly recommended strategy to back up, preserve your PC and your sanity without tech help.

You could have conflicting 3rd party programs from an AV ovwards, so yuo could check whether these work
a. after clean boot
b. in safe mode

You could try the standard
chkdsk c: \F from an admin command prompt.
Then
sfc /scannow from the same.
Finally there is a DISM command you can run.

However, I would recommend you run chkdsk, then do an in place upgrade install, one of the really good things about Win 10.
This keeps most settings and all your progs.
(Note disk imaging can provide a much faster fix).

I have Windows XP (2007).
When trying to open Outlook - message says cannot start, cannot open window, the pst folder has errors - use Inbox Repair Tool. When using the repair tool, the test results say minor discrepancies found, optional to repair. When I don't repair, Outlook still doesn't open. When I use the Repair Tool and begin the repair, the repair gets hung and stops. When I try to copy the PST file to an external hard drive to save it and possibly delete and reload, it cannot copy saying "I/O error".

Background, for quite a while, opening Outlook has begun with message that a personal folder did not close properly - checking. Have run the Inbox Repair Tool in the past and it has worked.

But for now - can't go past the above blocks. Any suggestions?

Hello,

I am having several problems with my computer. I am using XP Pro SP 2

1) I cannot open links from the Yahoo home page when using Firefox. I have no trouble with it when using Internet Explorer.

2) I have tried manually updating my AVG anti-virus software and I get an "The Connection with Update Server has Failed" message

3) I cannot run "REGEDIT". I tried this after reading on the message board that this could be a sign of a virus or other malware.

Any help would be appreciated.

A:AVG won't update, can't open Yahoo links using Firefox, regedit doesn't work

Some types of malware will disable MBAM and other security tools. If MBAM will not install, try renaming it.Before saving any of your security programs, rename them first. For example, before you save Malwarebytes', rename it to something like MBblah.exe and then click on Save and save it to your desktop. Same thing after you install it. Before running it, rename the main executable file first

Hello,
Well the first thing you should try is to Run System Restore to before all of these problems started or to when you first installed Windows 10.
Then try to download Firefox from there website
https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/new/
Third thing is I would recommend to get rid of Avast it is low end and could be allowing virus I recommend ether McAfee or Norton Security.

Those are some things to think about
but it is all up to you when making your final decision

A few days ago I began to receive the above noted error message. The system locked up, more or less, until this message would appear after about 15 minutes.

I have a Dell XPS M1530 with Windows Vista Business, SP2. I do not use bluetooth connectivity between my laptop and external devices.

To resolve this error, I did the following:

Start --> Programs --> Dell Quickset --> Radio Control Options
Click "Advanced Settings" button
Click "Radio Control Options" Tab
Unselect "Bluetooth"
OK --> OK
Click Bluetooth Taskbar Icon --> Disable Bluetooth Devices
I hope this helps because I could not find anything on the Internet with this solution. Hours on the phone with Dell proved, unsurprisingly, to be a waste of time.

Sounds like a malware hijacking. That seems to cause a lot of eratic action in IE some times. Try running HiJackThis and see what is controling IE. Run SpyBot S&D and Ad-Aware to get rid of Malware. Also run a good virus scan. If you are using Norton AV try using Avast, it seems to catch a few more than NortonsAV in my experience. You will need to make sure that all of Nortons/Symantec Antivirus is removed before you run Avast.

Does this happen with another user account? If you could, try creating another user account in Windows and login with it. If it works there, your windows profile is corrupt and you will have to copy your files and settings to the new user you create.

If it is still happening, try going to a command prompt: Start/in the search box type "cmd" and hit enter.

At the prompt type sfc /scannow and hit enter.

When done, restart and see if the problem exists.
Edit:

Alternately, this may work too.
Click Start.
In the search box, type regedit and press Enter.
Locate the following registry key: HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\lnkfile
Now, right click on the right pane, select New String Value (REG_SZ).
Name the new registry value IsShortcut
No value data is required.
Reboot your computer for the change to take effect.

Hi Essam Tarik,

Please let us know which Bluetooth card is installed on the system. Have you tried to reinstall the Bluetooth software on the system to check if it resolves the issue.

If you are not aware of where you can download and install the software then kindly provide us with model number for the system.

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)?

Hey guys,

I have an Acer Aspire V3, running Windows 7 SP1 x64, with internal bluetooth.

I tried with the standard Generic Bluetooth Adapter and also with the Atheros_7.4.0.126 Bluetooth Adapter which comes with the driver-package of my laptop.

I checked that the Bluetooth Service is started and running.

However, my bluetooth is unable to detect any devices, even though I have a bluetooth mouse and bluetooth phone lying next to the laptop, both enabled and detectable.

Clicking on the bluetooth-tray and then 'Add a Device' just brings up a screen saying 'Searching for devices...'.

Any help?

My problem is that I cannot access the internet through my LAC. I enable the connection and it will connect and send packets, but will not receive any packets. I have no problems enabling my wireless connection and connecting to the internet. The wireless does like to disconnect and reconnect about 3 or 4 times an hour which is another problem I have. I believe this LAC problem started around the same time I was trying to get shared music between my computers on iTunes.

I m noticing a really weird problem I have a thinkpad t p running winxp pro sp with integrated bluetooth I have two logitech mice both with wireless USB receivers and I like fails doesn't receiver recognize; computer weird, unplug usb and bluetooth to switch them out because weird, unplug usb receiver and computer doesn't recognize; bluetooth fails sometimes I feel like using my right hand and sometimes my left But sometimes when I unplug a receiver the computer fails to make the quot DING ding quot usb device leaving sound When this happens all of the usb ports stop working Reinserting the receiver does not fix the problem Then after awhile the bluetooth icon in the tray turns read and pops up an error message complaining about not being able to start the bluetooth service I have no idea why bluetooth would have anything to do with these logitech usb receivers but that s what happens At first I thought my only way to fix things was to reboot but then I noticed that when I shut Outlook suddenly I get the USB dinging sounds and everything is fixed Can anyone tell me what is going on and how I can fix this problem Thanks nbsp

A:weird, unplug usb receiver and computer doesn't recognize; bluetooth fails

The Bluetooth might be connected internally via USB hubs and when you suddenly unplug the USB stuff, the bluetooth stops working because all the hubs are "disconnected".
As for the USB not working until after Outlook 07 is shut down ... maybe your computer can't handle the process. How long do you wait until you decide to restart?

Alright So whenever a program uses InstallShield none usual work fixes of InstallShield work, doesn't the to install or uninstall a program it boots up and the bar fills up preparing to run the Wizard and right when it fills an error message pops up quot An error occurred while launching the setup The specified module could not be found quot and then it quits This occurs anytime I try to install or uninstall anything that uses InstallShield I ve tried everything at the InstallShield troubleshooting site including deleting a file in the registry the problem key was there but deleting it didn t solve the problem making sure I had admin privilidges and emptying out the Temp folder I can t reinstall InstallShield because it ironically requires InstallShield to install The one problem that I can think of would be that I just got back from college At college I logged onto a network to use the computer Could this have something to do with it I ve tried logging onto the computer itself as the Admin but the problem still occurs This whole thing really sucks because the comp is pretty much useless not being able to install or uninstall anything Thanks for any help nbsp

A:InstallShield doesn't work, none of the usual fixes work

Depending on what version of InstallShield you have here is a site that shows some of it's program errors >
http://helpnet.installshield.com/robo/projects/installshield10-5compact/CP_IHelpBuildErrors.htm

Have you tried this site > http://consumer.installshield.com/

InstallShield uses the Windows Installer Service. It could be that Windows Installer Service has somehow become corrupted.
Check this site out > http://consumer.installshield.com/kb.asp?id=Q108201

As a last resort you might consider reinstalling your Windows Operating System on top of itself to repair and replace the corrupted or missing files associated with InstallShield and Windows Installer Service.

Just for your information, InstallShield is the oldest installer program company. However there is another that is completely free “Inno Setup” which you may have seen when installing some programs. Here’s their site > http://www.jrsoftware.org/isinfo.php

Dear All
I'm using Dell Vostro 3350 now. After I upgrade Win 10 Pro, the Laptop Speaker doesn't work and can't give output any sound. But if I put my earphone, all of the sound include song work.
I use PC Doctor and scan the computer hardware but there is nothing found error on hardware and software. I also use windows update to scan all of the drivers, but it can't found any update drivers of this laptop. So what can I do next to fix the problem?
Thank you for member's attention

A:Laptop Speaker Doesn't Work But Using Earphone Work

Hello. Dell does not recommend installing Win10 on the Vostro 3350 model. Dell says, "If you choose to upgrade, some features, applications, and connected devices may not work as expected." To get the best performance from your laptop, revert it back to the previous operating system. You can google to find instructions for undoing Win10.
If you want to continue with Win10, then try to install the IDT Win8 audio driver using compatibility mode.
1. Click the link to go to the driver's page. Download and save the driver to your desktop or any convenient location on the hard drive. 2. Double click on the new folder to extract (unzip) the driver files.3. The extractor wizard will create a new folder for the driver files. It will be at "c:\dell\drivers\xxxxxx". Write down the exact location that the wizard creates. 4. If the driver begins to install automatically, halt (cancel) the installation.5. Browse to the driver files on the hard drive (the location you wrote down).6. Find the "setup.exe" file.7. Right click on setup.exe to open the context menu.8. Select the Properties.9. Select the Compatibility tab.10. Check the box "run this program in compatibility mode for"... Win8.

Help! See the title.

I'm going mad because I can't listen to music! I've tried three different mediaplayers (Windows Media Player, VLC & QuickTime) and all three just don't work! WMP won't even play the files, VLC will (in .avi-case even with picture!) but there won't be sound :/. Same for QuickTime,...

Now, the weird thing is that I can play games without a problem and the sound's still there! Hell, even sounds made by Windows -- I hear 'em! YouTube works too!

I'm concerned there might be something wrong in the registry,... (I use Eusing Free Registry Cleaner/Defrag regularly, I guess something was bound to go wrong,...)

Please, help? :(

(Windows 7, btw.)

Okay I'm getting 2 different problems occurring every time I resume my computer from sleep.

So far I've only tried getting my Bluetooth mouse to work after sleep and that hasn't work. This is what I did: Run>Services.msc (My bluetooth is Toshiba) so I went to the Toshiba Bluetooth service and changed it from manual to Automatic. Should I change the logged on as (it's currently Local System).
The service starts although it's just that my bluetooth mouse doesn't want to work after resuming from sleep.

My other sleep problem is 2 of my 2TB (both Samsung HD203WI) disappear after resuming from sleep. Only my SSD (Kingston 64GB) and my other 2TB (Samsung HD204UI) show up.

My Computer:
ASRock 890FX, AMD Phenom II X6 1100T @ 3.3Ghz, 4 GB RAM, 3 SATA HDDs, 750-watt PSU

A:[SOLVED] After computer sleeps: Hard Drives disappear and Bluetooth mouse doesn't wor

Go to Start type in devmgmt.msc hit enter. Located USB hubs right click on each the properties advanced change the power settings by unticking "allow system to power down to save power" see if that helps.

Do this for each USB Hub.

I've never seen this problem before in my life and it has me mortified.

My Sony VAIO starts. It's plugged in normally. The power lights flash, it checks the CD-RW drive, and then remains on with the main power light on and the fan on, but the screen remains black and nothing else happens. Windows XP doesn't load. No Sony logo, no "Operating system not found," nothing. It's like it's had a lobotomy.

I haven't installed anything new, and the notebook has just been sitting around unplugged for a few days. The last thing I used it for was to burn a CD with Windows Media Player. The only change I can think of is that my USB tablet isn't plugged in.

Any suggestions? Thanks, everybody.
 

A:Solved: XP VAIO laptop starts, Windows doesn't, screen doesn't seem to.

If it has a battery installed, try removing that. Then with the laptop power plug UNplugged press and hold the power button for a second or two.

Then plug the power adapter back in WITHOUT replacing the battery and see if you can get a normal start.

Hi there, my old PS/2 mouse died on me, so I bought a new USB mouse. When i plug the mouse in, it searches for software and it can not find any. I get power to the mouse before Windows boots up. Once Windows boots, i got nothing. Mouse works fine in other computers. None of my USB ports work (front and back). I enabled usb support in my bios, still nothing. Any advice???

A:USB Doesn't work

Well, if it searches for software, the USB port is working.

You most likely need to install the drivers for that specific mouse.

i'm trying to use an external usb hard drive but it transfers extremely slow. my motherboard (abit nf7-s) has usb 2.0 ports but i guess windows is only running them as regular usb ports. i've heard that i have to find the right drivers, and i also heard that i have to install service pack 2, which i don't want to do because i tried it once and it crashed my hard drive. how can i get usb 2.0 to work? thanks

Hi and Welcome to TSF!

I hate to be the deliverer of bad news, but the only way to address the issue of your USB 2.0 Ports is to "bite the bullet" and install SP2!
Many issues like this were addressed with the Service Pack.

EDIT:

The drivers for your motherboard are available from the Abit website here, however, I still honestly believe that SP2 will rectify your issue.
Please post back with the result, or any further queries/concerns.

I just started streaming today and my mic was muted, I thought I had accidentally clicked the mute button but I didn't. When I go to control panel-sound-recordings and I listen to the mic, it works fine so it has to be an OBS problem. I streamed yesterday and I didn't have this problem, I also didn't adjust any settings after that. I already made sure it wasn't set on the wrong mic in obs settings. How can I fix this?

Nevermind I fixed it, turns out I had it set on push to talk (???) I never changed the settings, I changed it in ts though but I don't know why that would affect OBS.

I couldn't figure out how to delete this question so don't waste your time answering it haha
