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.

DUNCANMATHESON,
You should be able to pair the bluetooth speakers to your computer. Below are some links to help you get the speakers paired.
In Windows 7


Turn on your Bluetooth device and make it discoverable.The way you make it discoverable depends on the device. Check the device or visit the manufacturer's website to learn how.
Select the Start button

> Devices and Printers.
Select Add a device > select the device > Next.
Follow any other instructions that might appear. Otherwise, you're done and connected.

Your Bluetooth device and PC will usually automatically connect anytime the two devices are in range of each other with Bluetooth turned on.

I've tried to install a couple of different Bluetooth headsets (Motorola & Samsung) to my Latitude E6230 running Windows 7 Pro x64. It recognizes the headset and says it has been installed, but then searches for drivers that cannot be found and the device icon ends up with an error flag on them and it doesn't work. I have an internal Dell 380 Bluetooth 4.0 module with current drivers that tests fine. Any suggestions?

Hi werosen,

Welcome to the community.

Please remove the drivers currently installed for Bluetooth and then install them from the link below:

Bluetooth

Let me know the model of wireless card installed on the system.

Also, you can update any driver for your system by the following this video below:

I have a Bluetooth headset I'm trying to get connected on Windows 7. I have a Bluetooth USB hub connected which seems to work fine. The headset can be seen, but when I connect it said no drivers found and fails.

I suspect part of the problem is that it's not asking me for a pair code. How do I enter the pair code in Windows 7? I know how I did it in XP, but I don't know in 7. The default pair code is 0000 and I need to enter that.

It's a PnP device so there are no drivers. This setup worked just fine in XP.

Anyone have any ideas? I've seen the pair code window come up sometimes, but I can't figure out how to get it to come back up.

Hey all I am hoping someone has an easy fix for my issue here. I can pair my android cell phone to the pc via win 8 generic bluetooth drivers and it works after confirming the pair code on both my cell phone and my pc.

Problem is that once I reboot I can not connect to the cell phone and have to remove the device from the list and discover it again, pair with it again and then it works.

Am I missing a setting in win 8 that keeps the settings for my bluetooth devices and connects to it once it sees it again?

Also, is there any better drivers/ software to use other than the generic bluetooth drivers that win 8 uses?

I have an intel 7260 HMW mini pcie wireless n card with bluetooth 4.0.

I've paired them before and the phone is listed in the Dial up box but shown as disconnected. When I try to connect I get Modem Error 777. My phone can find my pc but not the other way round. I thought I'd try to Add a device but in the box that comes up there's no option to do that neither is my phone listed there.

I've used Bluetooth with my phone in the past so can anyone tell me what's gone wrong?

4. Test the audio output

When I try to get my pc to add device my pc doesn't read it at all.

Maybe I bought the wrong kind of dongle, maybe my pc just hates bluetooth, maybe I'm missing a driver(s), I don't know, I need some help on this.

If anything i would try deleting the old phone from the devices list and re-adding it; letting windows search for it and see if it works that way. It it doesnt; then there could be a glitch with either the bluetooth adapter or with the new phone itself you got(as much as i hate to say that; yes it can happen especially in this day and age). So give that a shot and see what happens.

I recently bought a Microsoft Bluetooth keyboard 6000 for my HP 2730p tablet pc. I paired the keyboard and number pad to Windows 7 (x86) Ultimate without issue the first time but had to clean install the computer. Now, I cannot pair them any longer...When I go through the "add device" operation, I can sometimes find the BT devices and sometimes not. If I press a key, then the devices will appear and I can select the "create a pairing code" which gives me the 8 digits. I start entering them and then get timed out because I only have 5 seconds or so for entering the numbers.Is there a way to lengthen the timeout or some other options I'm not seeing?This device does not have its own codes like a cell phone of 0000.Keith Hageman

A:Win 7 Bluetooth pairing timeout too fast

OK, Duh.
 
It turns out that there's a magic sequence to resetting the pairing on my devices. If I hold in the pairing buttons for 30+ seconds the LEDs start alternating colors and I can successfully pair my devices.
 
And, of course, nada; nothing in a manual anywhere on this one... Nothing on the forums on this... I've seen several questions similar to this. It would be helpful to add a "try this first" to an FAQ on the forums.Keith Hageman

I have a HP Pavilion g6 and want to pair it with a Bose Soundlink Mini bluetooth speaker - it doesn't work.  Any help would be appreciated.  Very frustrating.   It paired with my iPad and iPhone easily.

A:Pairing bluetooth Bose soundlink mini

Hi,

For pairing your bluetooth Bose speaker to your computer. I have included the link 'SoundLink® Wireless Mobile speaker update' to download the actual software, and updates available. According to the page for the download, you will need to have the speaker connected to the computer with a micro USB cord.

If the above step fails to resolve the issue, I will need to know the full model number of your notebook, and what version of Windows you are running. I have included the documents 'Guide to finding your product number', and 'Which Windows operating system am I running?'.

Thank you.

My brand new HP Bluetooth Mouse Z5000 doesn't seem to be discoverable by my brand new HP Spectre running Windows 10.   The laptop wireless is on, because it's finding other devices, but nothing that looks like the mouse (i tried every device anyway, no luck).  The mouse is turned on, there's a blue light.  No where does it tell me what the name of the item should be when it's discoverable - I had assumed it would be obvious.  Thanks for any suggestions!

Greetings I have a dell inspiron e laptop that I got in June and it came with Vista I recently put Windows Professional on it and things appear to be working better than ever Anyways I got a rocketfish bluetooth keyboard model RF-ABTKB for Christmas and I have been having a rough time with it-- kind of makes pairing keyboard initial bluetooth issue me wonder why I don t just get a different one But it makes a good puzzle for a tech at least When I go to add device Windows begins searching for the keyboard I push the connect button on the back of the keyboard and Windows detects it Then a window comes up that has a number I enter the number and press enter on the bluetooth keyboard and there is bluetooth keyboard initial pairing issue an obvious response as Windows moves on to the next steps and finishes installing it However when I type anything on the keyboard it has no visible effect on the screen The keyboard shows up under devices as quot Rocketfish Bluetooth Keyboard quot If I right click on the keyboard and go to properties then Bluetooth tab it looks like this at first After about bluetooth keyboard initial pairing issue ten seconds the keyboard apparently disconnects and it changes to look like this So if I hit the connect button in the above window I have to enter the numbers again bluetooth keyboard initial pairing issue and it does the same thing over I figure the problem could be with my bluetooth driver My system has a Dell truemobile Bluetooth EDR module built in Trouble is windows installs its own driver that overpowers any other ones I install and when I delete it it reinstalls it again I went into the system drivers folder and deleted the sys files it said it was using but it made them back the next time it detected my bluetooth I guess its unpacking them from somewhere because I don t think I was connected to the internet So I guess any suggestions are welcome especially if someone knows how to stop windows from installing its own drivers or how to force another driver on Thanks in advance nbsp

I've tried it over and over, same thing.

A:Bluetooth Mouse - WM615 & XPS15 not pairing

I had the same problem with my new xps 15 9550 and the WM615 mouse. Trying to solve it with Dell, had a mechanic at my house  but to no avail.
Problem remained for about one month. Today I found this suggestion on the internet by :
Go to Device Manager -> Network Adapters -> Dell Wireless 1830 ac -> Properties -> Advanced. There you should see a list of various parameters to change. Scroll down to "Bluetooth Collaboration" and set it to "Disable". Now my mouse is working perfectly!
It works perfectly indeed!
Maybe this helps you too.

Hello everyone, I just bought a dell alienware m14x, I love it so far.

I pay the 20$ extra to have the Bluetooth option and I successfully pair my blackberry but when I am trying to pair my Bluetooth jay bird SB2 headphone with my computer, it doesnt work?

the computer find my device, and when I go to device and printer I see it there, but there is not option to ?use? or activate I also check in the sound option where you can choose the output(manage audio devices), but only the computer speakers are there.

I tried to download the driver installer wizard from Broadcom corp but it doesn?t find my headphone?

Anyone knows how to get my HP Roar Bluetooth speaker to pair with my DELL Inspiron Series 5559 laptop (Windows 10, 64-bit)? I keep getting connection failure messages. I had no problem pairing the speaker with my iPhone 6 Plus. Both units (HP speaker and DELL laptop) are only months old and under warranty, yet both HP and DELL are offering only fee-based tech support for this problem, which I refuse to accept. I visited the DELL support web site, hoping to download an appropriate driver, but found no option for Bluetooth.
Note that, in Device Manager, under Bluetooth, nowhere does the name DELL appear among drivers. All I see there are:
- Bluetooth LE General Attribute Service
- Bluetooth Mouse 3600 (a Microsoft device, paired)
- Intel? Wireless Bluetooth?
- Microsoft Bluetooth Enumerator
- Microsoft Bluetooth LE Enumerator

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hello.

I'm trying to get my phone to work with my bluetooth. There is no problem getting the laptop to find the phone, but then I get a screen with a code on it (see below attachments).

My question is, how do I manually enter the code? I know what it is for the phone, but I can't seem to figure out how to get vista to allow me to enter it. Selecting any of the option on the screen cap I included below fail, and none of them allow me to manually enter a code.

I have installed actual Bluetooth-stack v9.10.32(T)
Also added Bluetooth filter package and Bluetooth monitor (cannot see them in the control panel under "programs and features)
But cannot complete pairing with an Denon AVR-X1100


when connecting with the Toshiba all steps look good until the pairing code is displayed.
I confirm it and the Denon displays the Toshiba as paired and connected
but the Bluetooth wizard is displaying for a while:
"setting up audio device"
and ends up with "connection to a remote device failed please try again"
and windows7 displays "Authentication went wrong"

My Iphone and my Dell Latitude connects without any problems so it should be related to the Toshiba Bluetooth-stack (settings)
any Idea how to solve it?

A:Can Android's user run any video files on laptop via Bluetoo pairing ?

I don't know of a way to do what you want via Bluetooth but if both the laptop and the Android device were networked together (such as by connecting both to the same router via wifi) then it would be possible for the Android device to access video files from folders on the laptop.

Hey guys,

So i spent the entire day trying to figure out why my Bluetooth installed fine but after one restart it disappeared and it wouldn't come back. I finally figured it out that the FN+F2 (wireless/bluetooth switches) is what enables/disabled it HAHAHAHAHA.

default (after startup): WiFi on / BT off
first time: WiFi on / BT ON yay~!
second time: WiFi off / BT on
third time: WiFi off / BT off

and repeat.

I hope this helps people with their bluetooth issues =)

Windows 8 was able to install all my Function Keys so I'm going to assume this will be the case for others. Good luck

A:Bluetooth gone from Windows 7 32-bit HP laptop

Since the bluetooth device is not shown in Device Manager, this means either 1 or 2:

1. Bluetooth is disabled/turned off either by the bluetooth slider switch somewhere on one of the laptop's 4 sides, or there will be a key (usually top row) which has to pressed in combination with the 'Fn' key.

Or

2. The bluetooth adapter itself is faulty.

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.

On the Win 7 machine when I click the the bluetooth icon in the systray the option to 'Allow a Device to connect' is greyed-out and there is no alert that a device is trying to connect. A far as I can tell the bluetooth settings on both laptops are OK, adding a device was OK with the passwork handshake completed without problem.

Is this a driver issue, settings issue, or summat else?

Couple of questions

Are you using "homegroup" for networking?

Is there no other way you can transfer like wifi (its faster)?

I bought a new HP notebook three months ago, March, 2016.  After buying a state of the art Bose bluetooth speaker, I realized my notebook is not bluetooth capable.  Really?  Seriously? This limitation was not shared or apparent in any product information.  Nor was it shared with me by the Best Buy store associate.  I don't think he knew. Bluetooth is not new technology and today, it is essential.  What a disappointment.  HP notebook buyers beware!

Hey guysss, i've had my Asus F6A laptop for about a month now and have only just realised i should test out the bluetooth TODAY. Unfortunately, theres seem to be no bluetooth on the laptop even though is apparently "integrated bluetooth". I opened the manual book and acording to the book when i press Fn F2 it shud turn it on. However, when i do this, this is ONLY for wireless lan, there is actually no bluetooth function together. Anybody got any ideas how to "activate" bluetooth or sumthing???

THanksssss

Hello! It seems as if this laptop does not have any bluetooth capabilities, which is a bummer! Could someone confirm that? If not then I'm looking for a way to change that, what are some solutions? I really dont want to have to have a dongle taking up a USB Port, is there a way I could install a driver? Thanks in advance, Aaron

A:Is there a way I can get Bluetooth on my laptop?

If only you could add hardware by adding software. I confirmed your laptop did not have bluetooth from the factory. Your choices are 2. Add the usb dongle: easy cheap works like a charm. Otherwise open the back of the laptop, remove the wireless card and install a dual function wifi and BT card in its place and it has to be one of those cards HP offered from the factory on the same model series or the laptop will refuse to boot up. It is actually not terribly hard to do and not terribly expensive although more than the dongle thing. Once you have Bluetooth hardware in the laptop THEN we install a driver.  Post back if you want specific instructions and we need to know what country you live in.

A:Does My Laptop Have Bluetooth.

Open Device Manager from the Control Panel and see if any Bluetooth adapter is listed.  It will be there if the machine has built-in Bluetooth.
 
If it doesn't, USB Bluetooth dongles can be acquired for very little cash outlay.

A:Bluetooth/Laptop

That model doesn't have a Bluetooth adapter, so you'd first have to buy and install one. Some phones require software to be installed in order to transfer data, and some simply don't support it. Others only allow transfers to and from flash memory cards. The first step should be to review your phone's manual, and contact your cell provider with any questions as features can vary by phone and provider.

I'm looking at the Motorola SB6121 vs SB6141. The first harnesses the power of DOCSIS 3.0 technology to bond up to four downstream while the second has paring/bonding of 8 downstream. I have 105Mbs with Comcast. The first goes to 160Mbs the second to 345Mbs.- both under my maximum.

Does anyone see any value in getting the higher SB6141? As long as my Comcast input is limited what difference if any would it make?

Thanks guys
 

A:Modem Pairing

SB6141 is just more future proof as internet speeds increase. Even the SB6141 is getting old as newer modems are coming out with 16 and 24 downstream. Given that you have Comcast, you may want the SB6141 as they are changing present speed tiers. In a few markets already, people with 105 plans have seen the speeds bumped up to 150. I know in Washington State they are working for the speed change by the end of the year or early 2015.

Hello there,
I'm having a laptop with Core i3 2350M processor and was suprised when I read on Notebookcheck.net that this processor has an intergrated Intel HD3000 graphics card inside it. At the moment I'm using AMD Radeon HD7470M 1GB dedicated graphics card and I was wondering is there any way to enable that Intel integrated GPU to work along with the AMD card? I understand that I can't pair them with Crossfire because one is Intel one AMD but I think I read somewhere that you can run 2 different gpus without cf or sli but they will work different or something like that (one will just take a load off from another)...That's why I'm here asking you can this be done or I'm just hallucinating...
 

A:Pairing two different cards

I don't think it can be done. But I think I heard somewhere that the integrated GPU inside the CPU helps with video rendering, but I could very well be wrong about that.

The best thing to do is take both your computer and iphone to an apple store. They have specialists in store all the time to help with these kind of things.
