T410 win 10 x64 - Bluetooth pairing with Bose QC35...

Q: T410 win 10 x64 - Bluetooth pairing with Bose QC35...

I've just successfully completed a win 7 pro x64 - > win 10 pro x64 upgrade on my T410.I can't seem to successfully enable Bluetooth to install and recognize and pair with a set of Bose QuietComfort 35 (QC35) Bluetooth headphones (which pair perfectly well with my iPhone). the QC35 does list on the sound playback devices, but along with a vertical red arrow.Lenovo does not have any updated drivers for Bluetooth on my T410 with win 10, 64 bit.....HELP anyone? Pretty please? Is there perhaps ANY workaround that anyone knows of to accomodate Lenovo's tardiness to provide updated Bluetooth drivers for T410 with win 10?Any help or suggestions would be much appreciated ! ThanksJonathan

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

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


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.

I purchased myQC35's 29 Aug 2016.  When used in Video Conference the other end only gets loud static from my microphone on my Elitebook 840 G2.  There is no problem with sound when playing video etc on Windows 10 on it. I have tried the most up to date MicroSoft supplied Bluetooth drivers and also tried the HP support site drivers - same result - loud static deliverd to the other end from QC35 microphone. My Andriod phones and tablet have no problem with play back and with using the microphone - from what I see on forums on the net it appears that others are having problems using Bose QC35 with their HP computers.  One OP suggested I also post to this forum with my experience to add to the weight of evidence.

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.

A:Bluetooth pairing?

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.

Hi we've just been bought a Bose SLIII as a gift and it works great with the iPod via Bluetooth. However it was also bought so we could stream straight from the laptop to the Bose but I'm not able to connect it. I have an Acer Aspire V5-571P with Windows 8 on it. I followed the instructions with the Bose but with no success. In Bluetooth settings it recognises the Bose and says connected but only for a few seconds until it changes to not connected. What am I doing wrong?!

A:Bluetooth connection to Bose SLIII

I looked at the specs on Bose, Ipod and the Acer laptop and they all seem to be using Bluetooth 4.0. Have you made sure to turn off the Ipod's bluetooth just to assure it is not obstructing with the laptop's signal? And try rebooting both devices the laptop and Bose to see if that helps.

I have a Dell Inspiron 1720 laptop which has Bluetooth enabled. My Nokia 2760 phone also has Bluetooth enabled. 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?

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?

Hi, I bought two "JBL Charge 2+" some time ago because of the low price at my local electronic store. These are overall really good portable speakes with great sound and build quality. Only thing is that I have two of these and I have to use them separetly because the JBL pairing app doesn't support older models. So I'm asking if you guys know any alternatives to the app so I will be able to use both speakers at a time through Bluetooth on phone. Thank you for any tips!

Hi werosen,

Welcome to the community.

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


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 an Arctic p311 headset, an Asus usb BT-211 dongle and use windows 7 ultimate x64. For the life of me I can't get this headset to pair with the dongle. I installed the drivers that came with the dongle, and in device manager I see this generic "bluetooth audio device" under Sound. I try to auto update but all is up-to-date according to my pc. 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.

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

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.

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?

I am puzzled!!

Anyone had a problem like that?

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

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.

I just got the XPS15 and a Bluetooth Mouse WM615 and I followed the simple instructions to a T.  I press the Bluetooth button and the indicator light on the mouse is blinking as it is suppose to.  The computer shows the mouse available on Bluetooth.  One the computer, I click 'Pair' but the error message keeps popping up saying Not found, please ensure the mouse is still discoverable.
I've tried it over and over, same thing.

Any ideas anyone?


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.

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!

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?

Hello. My son just installed Windows Vista Ultimate over XP. Ever since he did this, my Bose Companion 2 speakers have stopped working. I know it's not the speakers with the problem because I took them to work to test them out. The system does not even recognize that there is an audio device installed.

I have contacted Bose customer support but they could not help me, and suggested I contact Microsoft. As I am on eternal hold (48 minutes so far) with Microsoft, in hopes of getting help, I am requesting help here.

I would truly appreciate any help with this. Thanks!!

I have been having terrible trouble with getting an internet connection on my machine (Lenovo Q190). I have been able to connect to the network and get outbound pings to etc. But I have not been able to get any web browser activity.

After playing around with all kinds of things, I finally worked out that it's the transmitter for my Bose SoundLink. This transmits over a private Bluetooth network to the speaker. With the transmitter out, all is well with the connection. Plug it in, everything stops.

So of course this means that I can either connect to the internet OR listen to sound in my preferred way. Since I spend a lot of time on Spotify and Netflix, either/or isn't really good enough.

Can anyone suggest a way that I can leave the Bose connected and still have internet traffic?

Just wondering if anyone can shed some light on Bose speakers for computer?

I use to have Creative Inspire 5.1 system and was quite happy with the sound quality but after listening to bose speakers, I was completely blown away. I've never heard anything like that. Does the computer speakers are equally good but they seem pretty steep, the lowest range is ?99 and they go upto ?299

so are they really worth the price or can you lot suggest something else which is eqaully matched?


A:Bose Speakers

Hate to break the news to you, but most people who know quite a bit about audio stay away from bose speakers because for the money, they generally are crap.

Here are some references;
Just A Couple Reasons Why Bose Sucks | Obnoxious Listeners
intellexual net ? m k i v
Why does Bose blow? Suck? hated by audiophiles? |

And this comes from a person who make the mistake and went with some Bose speakers once before. Never again. These days, I go for Polk, Paradigm, Klipsch, KEF, Axiom, Definitive, etc.

Bose is more of a marketing company than a speaker company. More often than not, those who own BOSE and swear by them are unable to name more than 2 other speaker mfgs. People "aspire" to own BOSE because marketing has said they are the best...but they are not.

Here is a great example. Look up speakers from any other reputable company like those listed above. Look at specs...they tell you thinks like crossover frequencies, sensitivity, resistence, frequency response, etc. Look at the specs on the BOSE site...they list weight and dimensions...but not a single thing from any audio standpoint. Why would you not list your specifications when every other company on the planet does?

For computer speakers, check out Swan, or Klipsch.

Hi,I was just equipped with a brand new X1 Carbon (20A8 type) and tried to use my Bluetooth headset Bose AE2W.The pairing was successful.Unfortunately, the headset doesn?t work properly.The headset does not work in the recording mode (just playback)When I am listening to music, sound is time-shifted (about 1-2s) and every 10-15 it stops.Sometimes it mutes completely so I need to reset the headset.I used Lenovo system update. I also ensured that the headset has the most update firmware.Previously I was using t420s and didn?t have such problems (perhaps sometimes number 3). The headset works perfectly with my private laptop, mobile, tablet etc.I wrote to Bose. They replied that the headset is compatible with:Headphones (HSP 1.1); Hands Free (HFP 1.5); Advanced Audio Distribution Profile (A2DP 1.2); Audio/Video Remote Control Profile (AVRCP 1.4)Can you help me?Thanks

I got a set of Bose Companion 5 5.1 (2 speakers, using their special technowhatever to sound like 5.1). These use a USB 2.0 cable connected to a subwoofer to work. Now, I had Vista, which this speakers worked on fine. Switched to Windows 7, because I hated Vista's slow Windows Explorer loading, and the speakers don't work. After being plugged in, they are "Unknown Device"s.
..Help please.

This is weird, I own these speakers too and they seem to be working fine through USB. They get detected properly and the sound is automatically redirected to them when I plug them in through USB, the only problem I experience is sometimes some kind of popping/skipping/crackling sound. I guess your best way to go is to plug them to your computer using a headphone cable to connect from the volume pod sound input to the computer's sound output.

I have a pair of BOSE Media Mate computer speakers and I burned out the power cord. It says 12 vac 1.2.

Where can I find a replacement cord?

Check your local radio shack, or any other electronics store, you just need a 12V AC power adapter.

Hello I bought a Bose Companion speaker set I was using them in my laptop while waiting for my PC to arrive I wasn t sure where to plug them in but the only place it made sense to plug in was the headphone jack and that seemed to work fine My PC came in and I tried to find somewhere to plug them into the back of the computer XPS I looked in the manual and it said to plug surround sound speakers into the black outlet or whatnot No sound was coming out speakers Bose Companion 3 I plugged them into the headphone jack and they work fine but it s annoying Bose Companion 3 speakers having a cord coming around the front of the box The speakers run through an quot Acoustimass quot module which acts as a subwoofer I assume that s the correct term as well as the piece that the speakers plug into and the power output plugs come out of The only output cord is the headphone jack cord Is this speaker set more appropriate for laptop use Is there anyway that I could get to plug into the back of the computer If not is there any kind of adapter that wouldn t sacrifice sound quality that I could extend the output cord Just ask about any terms that don t make sense I know a thing or two about computers but not much and barely anything at all about speakers audio set up Thanks Josh nbsp

Hi all, I have a T410 that's from 2010 with the i5 520m cpu. I bought it used recently and I don't think the bios has ever been upgraded. When I follow the regular instructions of entering BIOS --> Config --> CPU, I saw a menu of four choices. The bottom two wereIntel(R) Virtualization Technology [DISABLED]Intel(R) VT-d Feature [DISABLED]I tried to change them, but strangely the menu only let me navigate through the first two choices (I can't recall them exactly now but they didn't seem to have anything to do with virtualization), nothing seemed to allow me to access the bottom two choices...  How should I go about fixing this properly?  I want to be very careful with upgrading/flashing BIOS as I really don't want to end up with a brick Thanks

A:Enabling Intel VT-x in a T410

Look for your BIOS Version and post it(You can find it on the start page of your BIOS)VT-x is supported by your CPU, but maybe there are conflicting settings..Maybe you really have to update the BIOS but that shouldn't be a real problem...Use a disk image, hook your thinkpad to the power and let it be for 20 minutes or so...
