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 @santhoshbo, Welcome to HP Forums! I have read your post and wanted to help I understand that you want to use the bluetooth function on your laptop, but it does not connect. In order to better assist you, can you provide the prodcut number of your laptop?HP Notebook PCs - How Do I Find My Model Number, Serial Number or Product Number?

I have a Belkin USB Bluetooth adapter that uses the Broadcom's WIDCOMM manager, and I've installed it in Windows 7. I have bluetooth a device with has no visual output nor alphanumeric input, so I've added it with no pairing.

I have it connected to COM3, but when I try to send/receive information I get a warning that a bluetooth device is trying to connect, and asks me for a pairing key

How can I really have the device connect to a serial port, without having to pair it every time I want to transmit data?

Passcode of device when connecting via Bluetooth,

I wanted to connect my laptop (sony with windows 8) with tablet GPS (lieca CS25with windows7) but the system requires the passcode (attached).


I couldn?t figure out how to find out the Passcode of the GPS (lieca CS25with windows7)? Can this be found by windows 7?

Thank you

Best

Jamal

A:Passcode of device when connecting via Bluetooth,

If you read the link it mentions:Double click the device you want to connect to and wait while a connection is established. You will be presented with a passcode that you must either verify as being the same on the other device (most likely if you are connecting to another computer), or enter the code on the device you are connecting to (most likely in case you are connecting to a phone).

The directions look easy enough but I personally haven't had a chance to work with Bluetooth so I can't test this out myself.

Hello! I recently bought a Microsoft Sculpt Comfort Mouse. It's pretty good so far, but I've been annoyed by the fact that it's Bluetooth. This might make it handy when connecting to a laptop but that also means that I have to pair the device again every time I use it in another computer.

I am looking for a way to connect the mouse without going to settings then unpairing and pairing again the device. Could all that be done by a shortcut in the desktop (so I could assign it to one of my keyboard's macros)? Or just a faster way to connect again (through some type of utility perhaps).

Android is a good example of this. I put the mouse in pairing mode and the click on the mouse in the Bluetooth settings. No unpairing and pairing again. Really fast as well.

Thanks in advance!

Dear tanjib2,
The Blue Tooth device drivers appear corrupted. Try to uninstall and it is always safe and prudent to download the drivers from the Dell site. For that you have to register( I don't know why they are making it tough). Kindly visit this site to register and then to download the drivers for your model of Dell.

In windows 10 mobile, I can go into my bluetooth devices, and 'disconnect' a specific device. In Windows 10, I can only 'remove' the device (which I don't want to do) or turn off BlueTooth altogether.
Does anybody know a way to just disconnect a device? For instance, I want to have my headphones connect to my phone instead of the PC.

A:How to disconnect a bluetooth device without turning off bluetooth.

'Remove device' is probably not the best choice of words they could have used on this! When you close the process (i.e. 'disconnect' your headphones) on your PC, you are performing the same function as what you describe on your phone. You are not actually removing the device, just closing the process. I hope that makes sense!

It tries to update a driver but always fails and gives me this. (2nd, larger picture)

Hi all I have a desktop and a Compaq laptop both using Windows XP Pro SP I would like to connect them both using Bluetooth so I can transfer files between them I don't care about sharing the internet connection I hoped to buy an Ethernet crossover cable but I couldn't find any and I've been using a USB stick to Bluetooth 2 PCs Using Connecting very very slowly transfer files across I turned discovery on on both the PCs and used both to try and find the other to add a device and they do and also turned allow Bluetooth devices to connect on as well but they are unable Connecting 2 PCs Using Bluetooth to connect for whatever reason I tried using a custom key and letting it choose one for me but neither worked As clever as Microsoft is it doesn't tell me what the actual problem is All it says is there isn't any Connecting 2 PCs Using Bluetooth more information about it I also don't want to not use a passkey Again I don't need to share the internet connection merely transfer files between them I also tried with a small test file and it saw the other PC but then chose to fail Any help would be appreciated Thanks

I love my Sony DR-BT bluetooth headset It would connect fine with my PC and worked beautifully Unexpectedly it suddenly stopped connecting and every time I tried to pair nothing would happen I've been able to add the device so the PC recognizes it However it won't connect with the PC and the device does not show up as an option in the playback tab in the sounds menu So I tried following this link http windows forums com windows- -networking -make-your-bluetooth-devices-work-windows- -a html Still nothing I'm not even sure what the Mobile Device Center is meant to do as the headset is not a mobile device like a handheld It said I should see an 'Unknown Device' named 'Bluetooth Peripheral Device' - which never was listed My headset is not on low battery and has never had connection issues in the past or even problems with playback I haven't messed with any of the PC's services or changed anything on my adapter If someone could help me out that would be great or share similar attempts to solve this problem

Hi all! I have problems when i try to transfer files between my PC and other devices (mobile phones, PC's) via bluetooth.

I can send files normally but i cannot receive them. When I try to receive, the connection just fails. Do you have any idea what might be the problem and how to solve it? Could it be something to do with serial ports? At the moment I am using different serial ports for sending and receiving (COM23 and COM24). How can I change the serial ports so that they would the same for sending and receiving..?
Or has it anything to do with serial ports?

I have Windows Vista Home Premium 32bit and my bluetooth device is Generic Bluetooth Radio manifactured by Cambridge Silicon Radio Ltd.

hello all.

Ive been having trouble with my bluetooth connection. Whenever i attempt to double click my phone icon in the devices menu to view its bluetooth connection options, i get a message saying:

"an error occurred when initializing this operation. Try restarting your computer and/or the Bluetooth device. "

so, what i see so far:

-the phone successfully pairs with my computer
-each device can see each other

but they cannot interact.

the phone however will connect and interact with other bluetooth devices.

ive double checked many times, my drivers are all there and up to date.
(also used driver genius to check this)

also, whenever i start my computer, i always get the message: "ERROR: unable to start bluetooth stack service"

any ideas what's going on here?

thanks.

my system specs:

windows 7 ultimate 64 bit, build 7600

A:BSOD when connecting bluetooth mouse

bthport.sys seems to be causing the most issues. Here's a link to a KB article that describes something similar: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929577

Interestingly, the debugger can't locate symbols for this driver (even though it's a Microsoft driver) - so I wonder about it's compatibility with your system.

Also noted an issue with ctclsflt.sys - a Creative video filter

I ran an analysis of the last 20 minidump files - and all of them point at the bthport.sys driver

I'd suggest checking your system for the appropriate bthport.sys driver by using the above article. If you do not have that version, then I'd suggest getting the hotfix that is mentioned.

Another possibility is that there's an issue with your USB controller. Have a look at this article to see if it may apply (even thought it's slanted towards Microsoft Devices and XP): http://support.microsoft.com/kb/315973

Can you try the bluetooth dongle on the other system? This'll help to rule out problems with it.

Hello,I own a stock x220 with an i7.I would like to use the Microsoft Designer Bluetooth mouse. Apparently that mouse uses bluetooth 4.0, which my laptop does not have (2.1 i believe but i am not sure and don't know how to check either). Will I be able to connect and use that mouse? Thank you












Solved!

Go to Solution.

A:X220: connecting a bluetooth 4.0 mouse

Hello,
According to the X220's hardware maintenance manual, the ThinkPad X220 contains a Bluetooth Daughter Card BDC-2.1, with FRU# (part#) of 60Y3271 or 60Y3275.  Searching on those FRU numbers reveals this page on the independent ThinkWiki site which says those cards are Bluetooth 3.0.  It also mentions that the part is likely to be swappable with a new Bluetooth 4.0 BDC card.
 
From looking at the details [age for the Microsoft Designer Bluetooth Mouse, it mentions Bluetooth Smart/Bluetooth 4.0 compatibility and specifically says "Bluetooth 4. enabled devices" in the System Requirements.
 
It is still possible that the mouse will work with the older Bluetooth 3.0 card, but just consume more power.  Or, you may need to replace the Bluetooth Daughter Card inside the X220 or use an external Bluetooth 4.0 USB adapter with it.  It would probably be best to check with Microsoft for an authoritative answer.
 
Regards,
 
Aryeh Goretsky

guys I have a desktop and a laptop both running Windows 7 ultimate.

my desktop is connected to the interned via ethernet cable to the router and my laptop is connected via usb to the same router. both are working.

what I want is to keep the desktop connection as it is and connect the laptop via bluetooth to the desktop and share the internet connection so that i can move around the laptop without any cables within my house.

Is this possible? If so please help me on a step by step process to setup such a connection, my desktop has a usb bluetooth device which is detected automatically by win 7. no softwares are installed for this.

thank you very much in advance........
 

A:Connecting two computers via bluetooth and sharing one internet connection

Is it a wireless router (you can get a decent one for less than $25)? Does the laptop have built-in wireless? If not, you can buy a cheap USB dongle.

Do you really want to always have the desktop running every time you use the laptop?

I just bought a samsung DA-E670 wireless audio dock.
I have an Acer Aspire V3-571 laptop operating on Windows 7. When i try to connect them via bluetooth, my laptop recognises it as a samsung bluetooth headset, not an audio dock. It connects but it doesn't work. The sound still comes out of my computer's speaker, not the samsung speakers. I have tried removing and re-adding it numerous times in my laptop's bluethooth devices, but it still wont work.

I recently purchased a WS-3200 Bluetooth headset, and it works perfectly fine with phones and mac computers, but i'm having trouble using it on my windows 7 ultimate 64 bit platform.

I had some driver issues prior to this thread, and I was able to solve that, but now I am having trouble linking and pairing to my computer. I can successfully add the device to my computer, but when I go to click link with headset or hands-free telephony, it is unresponsive.

Anyone know how to fix this? Thanks.

Then, I selected "Locate and install driver software".

Next, it gave me this.

I recently purchased a used Dell XPS M1530 laptop. The last owner installed Win 7 Pro, 32-bit on it. I'm still in the process of checking everything out, but cannot get the Bluetooth device to work. I went to the Dell support site, entered the service tag number, and found that a device was installed when the unit was built. I verified that it is installed by finding it, and it is plugged in, and it is enabled in the BIOS, but I cannot seem to get it to turn on. I tried the Dell on-line diagnostic, but that couldn't find any device. I tried to download a driver from Broadcom, but that will not load because it cannot find the device. I read the owner's manual, on-line, and cannot see how to turn the device on, so, I'm stumped. Oh, and the device is NOT shown in the Device Manager.

I was prompted to install missing drivers for devices What is Bluetooth Peripheral Device? named quot Bluetooth Peripheral Device quot I never found any drivers and finally I ignored it The installation was successful as far as I can see I have never noticed special problems However when I look into My Computer gt Device Manager there is a listing under Other Devices quot Bluetooth Peripheral Device quot and quot Unknown What is Bluetooth Peripheral Device? Device quot in total devices all missing drivers A quick look at Google tells me that there are many others with HP machines in the same situation HP obviously does not install these drivers for some reason I contacted HP support in Scandinavia but they didn't know anything about Bluetooth Peripheral Device I see further in Device Manager that there is a HP Integrated Bluetooth module together with Microsoft Bluetooth Enumerator maybe these are substitute for the quot Bluetooth Peripheral Device quot Can anybody tell me more about this Do these missing drivers exist are they important or should they just be ignored

A:What is Bluetooth Peripheral Device?

If communications betwwen cell phone and computer fully work this is only small installer issue.Make sure you have the newest drivers HP Compaq 6715b Notebook PC*-* Support Software for HP Integrated Module with Bluetooth Wireless Technology (Microsoft Windows Vista) - HP Business Support Center
If yes and still the you have the same problem you have to modify installer this means you have to modify *.inf file in installer add Hardware ID of orphans and again install

Reading Hardware ID

Open device menager
right click on empty devices>>properties>>details>>find Hardware ID

read it and post here.

EXAMPLE

Suppose these missing devices have following hardware ID






BTHENUM\{00000004-0000-1000-8000-0002ee000002}_LOCALMFG&000f
BTHENUM\{00005005-0000-1000-8000-0002ee000001}_LOCALMFG&000f
BTHENUM\{00005601-0000-1000-8000-0002ee000001}_LOCALMFG&000f



1.Unpack InstallShield installer (just double click on it),choose location for unpacked files.
2.Navigate to Win32 folder (if anybody have x64 system then have to choose Win64 of course) and find btwavdt.inf,open it

find [WIDCOM] section,next find BTWAUDIO subsection

and add line in following rule

%BTWAUDIO.DeviceDesc<number>%=BTWAUDIO,<hardware ID>

Above examples in hacked btwavdt.inf looks below:

Save hacked file.
3.Uninstall drivers for bluetooth and install the hacked one.

Good luck

How do i turn on my bluetooth? or how do i activate it?

A:No bluetooth device was found!!

Is the driver is made for Windows 7 and Have you right clicked on the driver file and ran it as an administrator? I would try that first.

If that doesn't work, go to device manager and see how many devices there are with no driver for them, they should be called "unidentified devices" or something similar.

Then try Windows updates if you have not yet, and get it fully updated.

I'll come back to see how it's going.
