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 http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I'm trying to connect my PC and my Asus Zenfone 2 with Bluetooth. When I use the "add a device" wizard on Windows 8.1, my mobile phone is detected, but when I try to add it I get: "Windows doesn't have a network profile for this device".

Also, when I try to detect my computer with my mobile phone, itīs not detected.

I'm using a Trust USB 2.0 dongle Bluetooth adapter (the little one you insert on the usb port) that came with a keyboard and mouse Bluetooth set that I used. Could that dongle be designed only for the bluetooth keyboard and mouse set?
 

A:I cannot connect my phone to my PC (Windows 8.1) with Bluetooth

The Bluetooth device seems fine as it already detected your keyboard and mouse. However, your phone seems not supported with the current Bluetooth device and you might need to take another look.

Have a nice pair of Bluetooth headphones and trying to get them hooked up to the sound of my older TV. Is there some kind of adapter you can buy to to hook up to the audio out of the TV so I can connect the 2 via Bluetooth? I just don't wanna pay for another pair of headphones. I just want the reciever.

I have a mystery on my hands. I received a Bluetooth speaker as a gift. The BT-4.0 adapter plugged into my computer (USB-2.0 port) detects it (as a "Bluetooth headset"), but when I try to select it as my output device (from the "Sound" Control Panel), Windows reports it as "Disconnected".

If I open "Devices and Printers" and right-click the "Bluetooth headset" icon, I get an alert that the device "Failed to initialize".

I've tried rebooting, tried a different BT adapter, updated my BT drivers off the makers' website, Device Manager shows everything is connected & working (including "Bluetooth Audio").

64bit Win7 Home. Inateck BT-4.0 usb adapter. Speaker is a "MicroBoom" BT v2.1:
Any ideas?

PS: Eliminated the obvious. Speaker is fully charged and works just fine with my phone.

Quick question.

I have two cheepo USB Bluetooth adapters for my Windows 7 PC. One is a tiny generic (thumbnail sized) micro adapter, the other a small "stick" made by Rocketfish.

Both adapters install and "claim" to detect my Bluetooth speaker (misidentifying it as a Bluetooth headset. I have no headset), but the speaker doesn't detect the PC (even when clicking the Discover button.) My cellphone sees my speaker, but it too DOESN'T see my PC.

Are all Bluetooth adapters the same and if my cheap adapters won't pair with anything, neither will an expensive one? Or might there be something else going on?

Thx.

Hi,

I pair my Plantronics Calisto PLT Headset to my Desktop Computer (Windows 7 x64), and it showed that everything is OK, but when I tried to use it, it didn't work.
When I press icon of sound on the taskbar and I go to Playback or Recording there is there Bluetooth Hands-free Audio but is Disconnected, and I don't have any idea how to connect this and make to work.
Can someone help me to solve this problem? I will really appreciate any help.

P.S.
I did everything like supposed to be. I attached few images to show my situation.






 

A:Bluetooth Problem

Hi,
Yesterday I bought USB BT400 Adapter.
I started everything from beginning and there is exactly the same situation. Nothing changed. If you look to the picture, everything is pair and installed and when I ask them, they said that was something wrong with Windows configuration (not 100%).
Point is that they didn't have any clue what is wrong.
P.S.
I didn't mention that before when I installed USB Bluetooth Adapter, and I pair my device in the Playback and Recording devices when I tried to connect it worked for very short time and after this somehow disconnected by itself.
I don't know if I explain well what's happened, but if you want to ask something to make clear, please don't hesitate.

I just got a new system that is rather light on the USB ports, so I figured I'd take advantage of the built in bluetooth. That being said are there any bluetooth mice that the users of Techspot either own and like, or find appealing? I tend to like my mice full sized and being contoured for the right hand is a bonus.

I think yes, but you need to use some other sound output manager. Windows built-in one doesn't support multiple output via different type.

My old wireless setup finally crapped out so thought I d try Bluetooth with the longer range One thing I didn t know about Bluetooth at least with this particular keyboard and mouse to a small extent is that after a brief period of inactivity it unconnects or deactivates or whatever and to reactive it I have to type a key and then wait for seconds or more for it to come alive Very irritating especially like when I m trying to sign into something or am Bluetooth problems Keyboard working Bluetooth Keyboard problems on something I ve looked in the app and don t see anything where I can turn that off I don t mind replacing the rechargeable batteries more often if I can avoid that deactivating thing Any suggestions or am I just stuck with that Maybe back to quot old fashioned quot wireless At least those were quot always on quot or Bluetooth Keyboard problems whatever you d call it It s a Microsoft mobile keyboard and mouse There was a small install CD that came with them I don t know if the dongle would make any difference Thanks nbsp

A:Bluetooth Keyboard problems

Well, on the hopes there was something in the Bluetooth app that I missed, I went back and took another look.

Not much there, really. But I enabled Bluetooth Network (even tho I only have the BT keyboard and mouse and no other BT devices) and enabled sharing with other BT devices (I guess between the keyboard and mouse and dongle or ?).

None of those seemed particularly applicable when I looked at them before, but
whichever one of those did something, I did a test on the keyboard and at least
yet it hasn't shut off even waiting several minutes.

Actually, would be nice if everything PC / Windows would be that simple!

A:Multiple bluetooth headphones

I dont think your bluetooth audio adapter is able to drive 2 headphones at reasonable volume level. unless, you get a small headphone amplifier. but then you'll have 3 devices connected and I think it's not worth the hassle. the amplifier itself is cheap, look for something like fiio e3. I have it and it should cost less than 10 bucks.

http://www.amazon.co.uk/FiiO-E3-Hea...1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1353073889&sr=1-1

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Belkin-3-5m...2?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1353073843&sr=1-2

a single alkaline AAA battery could last for about 10h on my heavy usage. but im not sure if the bluetooth adapter could do the same.

bluetooth adapter -> fiio e3 -> 2way splitter

actually this way, it wouldnt be too much of a hassle. the 3.5mm jack of the bluetooth can be plugged directly into the fiio e3 as well as the 2way splitter.

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.

hi - i was just playing music on my dell latitude e4300 via bluetooth to a belkin bluetooth receiver connected to stereo.

somehow the connection got dropped - during a phone call on a land line. may be irrelevant.

now, i cannot get bluetooth connection back. there is no bluetooth icon in the system tray.

i cannot find 'bluetooth' devices in start>control panel> devices
--i have 2, and both ought to be there.

i unplugged bluetooth receiver, and had win 7 search for devices to add - no luck.

sure, i can reboot, and everything will probably come back.
but i am hoping for a better answer. i don't want to have to reboot every time the bluetooth connection gets lost.

i searched the web for a little, but only found unrelated posts, or posts with no answer. THANKS!
 

A:Bluetooth connection lost, icon gone from system tray, not in device manager

bluetooth light/icon on laptop, not screen is on; no bt

ok, i rebooted, thinking the bluetooth icon would again be in system tray, with the red in the middle, showing i have bluetooth capability, but that sound is not currently being directed to bluetooth.

no icon.

the dell laptop does have bluetooth icon illuminated on the laptop, just above the function keys - not on the screen at all / not in sys tray.

the bluetooth receiver is on, is working.

'add a device' is not finding this bt thingie.

A:LG vx855 Bluetooth/memory card error

Which way are you trying to send a file?
Phone to pc? Or pc to phone?
You need to make the target 'discoverable' and search from the 'source' to make a 'pair' with the target. Then find the file you want to send,(right-click) send...via..bluetooth and it will transfer.
It might be easier to get a USB cable to join phone to pc USB port.
Then open two explorer windows, and drag and drop the files across, (or copy & paste).
* Does the pc have bluetooth built-in?

Prior to resetiing? You mean you used the options to restore to factory condition? Then you almost certainly just need to re-install the driver for the blue-tooth device. Read the manual, or the website support for the laptop, where you will also find the necessary driver if you cant find it on the HDD or CD's that came with the PC

Is it possible to hook up suround sound speakers to a laptop? If so what kind of wire do i need to get to plug into my laptop on one end and bare wires to insert into the red / black ports on the speaker end

I'm trying to play a movie with my laptop and i want more audio. I'm not real worried about the quality as far as base I just need more sound.

Dont think i'm stupid im just trying to find a cheap way to make this work. Thanks
 

A:Hooking up a laptop to regular Bose home suround sound speakers?

If the speakers you are trying to hook up use the bare (+) and (-) wires, I don't think you can hook them up to your laptop because you would be missing an amplifier in between. If you have an amp or receiver (audio or AV), you might be able to use the laptop as a signal source, using the amp/receiver to drive the speakers. The amp would need to have the appropriate input connector.

I am thinking of getting a KVM Switch in particular I/O Gears USB based switch that works with one USB Mouse and Keyboard.

I happen to have a Bluetooth Mouse and Keyboard so I was wondering if I plug the USB Bluetooth receiver stick into the USB 'in' port on the KVM switch if both computers will respond to the Bluetooth unit coming on and off line as I switch between them?

I suppose it may be a bit slow as each computer would have to recognize the Bluetooth receiver and add it to the devices. Is there a solution to this to allow a user to use Bluetooth devices?

I have software from before, but could only copy, not install it. What I find works only in Vista. Broadcom's own bluetooth software does neither detect a bluetooth nor work without that. In the control panel there is no icon for bluetooth, even though Windows help suggests exactly that.

What are the specs for your system?
I have the same problem (only it's very rare) with my external HDD not starting, but I know it's a "lack of memory" issue. In your case, it may not be the bluetooth at all. Try running ccleaner and/or Advanced System Care to clean up your system and see if conditions improve.

Hey eveyone. I have a Microsoft MX5000 bluetooth keyboard and mouse combo. Will this work with a KVM switch to controll another computer? I have never used one a wireless/bluetooth mouse keyboard before. Thanks.
 

A:KVM Switch and Bluetooth Mouse Keyboard

Hi

as its blue tooth connection i would have thought that the PC would load drivers to use it, the KVM switch wont be able to load the drivers needed and as such i would think it wouldnt work.

Hello all

Hope someone could help me with a small problem I have.

My roommate and I both have laptops. His being an Acer Aspire 5335 with Vista basic and mine a Dell Inspiron 6400 with XP. Both laptops have Bluetooth and 802.11N connectivity.

Here's my problem:

I have a Tmobile dash that I use to connect to the internet via the dash's internet sharing all while connected to the laptop via bluetooth network access. My roommate connects to the internet the very same way. Problem is only one of us can go on at any one time.

Is there a way we could both connect to the internet at the same time using bluetooth or even make use of the Wifi cards somehow?

Any help you guys can give is very much appreciated

I have a Toshiba M700 laptop, running Windows Vista ultimate.
It has an internal bluetooth adapter. The bluetooth manager software that installs along with the drivers from Toshiba's website sucks. It causes a lot of little annoying problems, some of which you can't get around at all.

For this reason, I wish to use a different bluetooth manager program.
I'm not sure if Vista really has a default program, but my other 2 computers that have bluetooth seem to use the same, less annoying, bluetooth manager program.

Sorry if I'm being ignorant, but I'm not well acquainted with bluetooth yet.

I wanted to run a program that requires me to have the non-unicode language set to Japanese.
I changed it to Japanese, and then proceeded to try and run the program.
Program runs fine.

I tried to connect my bluetooth headset to listen to my music. No luck. I get an error message about copy protection.

What's odd is that if I change the non-unicode language back to English, the headset connects just fine, and it doesn't complain about copy protection or anything.

Any help on this is greatly appreciated. I have no clue what I'm doing wrong.

Okay, so I am trying to use bluetooth to transfer a couple of movies to my friends laptop. My discovery mode is turned on, so is his, and both bluetooth switches are on. When I try to add him to my Bluetooth Devices list, it does not recognise him. He does not show up. Same vice-versa. I opperate on a 64 Bit Vista, and he opperates a 32 Bit Vista.
I have read through most of the Bluetooth tips that come with Vista, and so far none have worked.
Right now I am transferring them over a wireless internet connection and it is taking an extremely long ammount of time for a few movie [[estimated 18hrs]

Any tips on how to get the bluetooths to recognize eachother would be great
 

A:Problem with Bluetooth

you're in for a painful stretch of road transferring movies via bluetooth. Your better off setting them side by side and using IR. Or why dont you all just wire into your router and transfer them over a wired connection? it'll be much faster. not to mention the risk of data corruption. I have a movie that was corrupted during transfer and you have to skip through about 10 minutes of it to avoid having it freeze during playback.

I assume you mean a Blue tooth Headset, if so prices will vary from how they look to who makes them and how long you get on things like standby time and talk time, i was bought a plantronics one by the kids for xmas and it works great and lasts for a long time and it was about Ģ20.

If however you want to pose with a designer model then expect to pay upto Ģ100 for one.

Hi guys, a little off subject, PC-wise, but I was thinking of buying a new bluetooth capable mp3 player and bluetooth headphones/headset. It led me to a few questions on the technology. I hope someone can help. I've had no replies yet off other PMP/bluetooth dedicated sites.

1. Does listening through bluetooth headset reduce the quality (e.g mono, compared to stereo)?

2. Does bluetooth allow different branded mp3 players and headsets to be interlinked? I was thinking of mainly the Samsung YP-T10JCB working with Sony's DR-BT21G headset, or Sony's NWZ-A828K working with Samsung's YA-BH270B headset. These mp3 players are the one's I'm most interested in.

3. Can you have a separate mp3 player and mobile linked to the same headset, so that you can listen to music, take a call, then carry on listening to music, seamlessly?

Bought a new Dell keyboard and Kensington
mouse to go with it.

I'm only getting somewhat less than 30 hrs use
out of a pair of coppertop AA's in either device

Is this normal?

Seems maybe I better invest in some good quality
rechargeables at this rate - I use the machine up to
8 hrs or so daily.

What ARE some good quality rechargeables that
hold power well? I know some don't retain "memory"
and therefore lose charge capacity over repeated charges

I've forgotten which are the good type, i.e. NiMh or whatever?

Also what brand / model hold the longest lasting charge?

Thanks!!!
 

A:Power hungry bluetooth?

i happen to have logitech wireless mouse and keyboard and use rechargeables for both of them as well as other non-computer items around the house. Don't know how all the brands and types compare but can tell you i have Radio Shack Nickel-Metal Hyrdide batteries and recharger and have been pleased in all their uses.

I'd add no matter what you decide to get, advise you buy only by a recharger that can handle ALL different type batteries (e.g. AAA, AA, C, D, etc) as it really makes it easier as you decide to add batteries for use around the house. And make sure the recharger allows you to drain all the batteries before recharging (one reason battery life is short is recharge before drained)

I'm just wondering if there are any differences between the two. I have integrated bluetooth on my laptop, so I won't need a dongle for it. I also know bluetooth is slower than wireless usb, but does this have any effect for a mouse?

In terms of performance and accuracy, are there any advantages or disadvantages to either format? Why are bluetooth mice seemingly much less popular with manufacturers?

Thanks a bunch.
 

A:Any difference between a wireless usb mouse or a bluetooth mouse?

Here's some advantages and disadvantages

Distance
Bluetooth you can expect 30 feet distance from the EEE. Wireless IR you can expect from 4 to 6 feet.

Easy to setup and configure
You plug Wireless in and it just works. With Bluetooth , you have to use the command line to set things up, and you have to script it or else every time you boot you'll have to give it all the commands.

Ports
The Bluetooth wins this one. The wireless keyboard and mouse use a USB port and do not give you anything else. The Bluetooth adapter uses the same port, but also lets you connect Bluetooth stereo headphones, your mobile phone, etc.

It really depends on what your needs are. If your living room is 12 feet and you want to hook your EEE up to your PC and surf from your lazyboy at the other end of the room, infrared won't do it. If you want the keyboard in front of the standard EEE screen and just want a better one, then the wireless IR is fine.

Hi there, i just got my DV9543cl and am quite loving it i can even play gothic 3 on almost maxed out settings, something that i dint expect from the 8600M GS card, altough not a 1440 resolution.
However my main problem is that i need to put bluetooth to the laptop as it only came with the wifi option.
i thought that i could upgrade to the "Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 4965AGN Network Connection and Bluetooth" card, in order to have wifi + bluetooth internally.
HP help/support advise me that i cannot upgrade this laptop to a internal wifi+bluetooth.
Can anyone share some wisdom to this? Is there an internal card i can use to install bluetooth to the laptop? mainly i need bluetooth for my connectivy with phone and also a bluetooth wireless mouse, so no extra devices hang out the laptop ports.

any ideas, much appreaciated .

thanks

The Guru's at HP say No... Go to some laptop parts websites and see if there is a 3rd party Bluetooth card available for your HP model. Do a Google search. If Blutooth is not an option for your model, I'm afraid that you are out of luck.

Shouldn't you have checked for the Blutooth option before you purchased the HP laptop?

is it possible to get some kind of tracking device? which will locate a bluetooth device determined on the signal strength?

i know with Wifi you can check a signal strength, and work out if your further away or closer.

it would be pretty handy, as i always have my PDA on my desktop, and my phone wherever around the house, i spend hours looking for it sometimes, (and i always have it on silent, so ringing it does'nt help)

anyways, if anyone has any information on this, ide really appreciate some help.

A:bluetooth not working ( again)

Try a different access point... USB devices are often trouble, and much slower and lower in signal as well.
To attempt to deal with the malfunction, reset your devices by either inserting a pin into the reset hole, or powering off for 20 seconds, then by removing and reinstalling the device software.
See if the USB device is recognized by another computer when you plug it in... if it is, you need to reset everything in the computer you were using... and the device(s) plus the access point or router.

Okay. I bought two bluetooth dongles, installed them in two computers in the house, set up the connection, and it worked.

For awhile.

The problems started when I took both computers away from my computer workbench. I put them in thier respective places, (one upstairs and one down) and now, it wont even register them. They are well within range (60 meters tops, and I'm directly underneath the other one upstairs) but still, they won't recognize eachother. Does a bluetooth radio wave only transmit latterally? Am I missing something?

PS: I NEED AN ALTERNATIVE TO BLUESOLIEL. I hate it. I had to mod it just to work with my dongle. Even without it, the two would recogognize eachother through plain XP Widcomm drivers. They won't recognize with either bluesoleil or widcomm now.

A:Bluetooth Problems

I thought Bluetooth only worked within a 33ft range. And it is also MUCH better when 'line of sight' is obtained. So going through walls and such might not be the best idea.

soz if this is in the wrong spot.

I hav a nokia 6111 with bluetooth version 2.0.. i think.

I am going 2 buy a bluetooth dongle from ebay. and i was wondering if the version of the dongle needs to be 2.0 or higher?
The bluetooth dongle does not state wat version it is. And i dont want 2 buy this if it wont work. This item is also new. so does that give a good indication on wat version of bluetooth it will support?

any help will b greatly appretiated.. Thanx

You need a bluetooth adapter. Usually they sell ones that attach to a USB port, but you can get PCI or PCMCIA models too.

I recently bought a Logitech MX5000 Keyboard/Mouse set, the mouse works fine, the keyboard sometimes goes on this delay where I type and I have to wait like a second before it inputs my keystrokes...and I play a lot of games which I cant let that happen, anyone here run into any issues with this and can maybe gimme some tips on how to make this work more efficiently?
 

A:Bluetooth delay

I've had that keyboard/mouse set & I've had to give it up. It was horrible even when doing regular computer use (typing documents, editing pictures) let alone games. Logitech support was quite good & sent me a replacement Bluetooth dongle but even with that & updated drivers, it was very laggy & buggy.

I'll give you the hints I was given when trying to solve my multiple problems:
install the dongle in the least "crowded" area of your computer (at the front, at the end of an USB cable, etc.)
if possible remove other wireless devices from the room (WiFi routers, cellphones, radio receivers, etc.)
remove the Broadcom Bluetooth drivers & use the Windows supplied ones
update to the latest driver build when available
That's all I can provide (aside from saying ditch the keyboard/mouse & get something else).

i recently got a new phone and have heard about this bluetooth stuff, atm ive only got a filetransfer app running surely thats not all you can do ?
 

A:Bluetooth

What make/model is the phone? Different manufacturers offer different features for different models.

You can probably download a huge bloated application suite from the phone manufacturer. If you have a Sony-Ericsson, then you can use this really cool program called Float's Mobile Agent.

Its in the bluetooth security setting, I had a look at the sony errickson I have and its a per phone setting, so if you linked to your friends phone go into the options (more options) for the phone named "your friend" and you will find a setting for "connect".. "always" or "ask each time" or similar.

I suggest reading the manual for your phone, and turn off bluetooth visibility or turn off bluetooth if your not using it, I saw a program where a guy used a portable PC to hijack bluetooth phones and earn money for a premium rate number.

Okay so my friend's using TELUS for his cell phone service, but I'm using Rogers. He said he's limited on using the Bluetooth because TELUS & Rogers both "locked" it so you can't transfer certain files like Ring Tones - and I overheard some people saying because of this lock, TELUS cannot recieve any media files from a Roger's bluetooth & vice-versa.

If this is true (which I hope it isn't - I haven't had time to meet up with that friend to test), is there any way to unlock it? I'd love to share some pictures & ringtones w/ my friends. And put in some custom wallpaper on my phone too.

Hey all, Cheers for the help with the power supply thing, finally managed to get things up and running! Unfortunately, I have another problem:
I bought a bluetooth card for my laptop, so that I could connect to the internet through my Nokia 6230. The card and laptop work perfectly together, and I have no trouble exchanging files etc, between my phone and laptop. However, every time I try to connect to the internet, my computer tells me that the card isn't connected. I never get this message when doing other activities, any ideas why I get it now? Hope one of you guys can help me, this is driving me insane!
 

A:Bluetooth problems

Is it a PCMCIA card or do you mean a Bluetooth dongle which connects to the USB port ? The latter is easier to reset as you simply need to pull it out & plug it back in. It might be a bit harder for a PCMCIA card though.

hi, this is the first time im on this forum and i had a problem with my new bluetooth dongle.
well, when i bought it it camed with its own software. i herd in some forums that when a bluetooth divice is connected to a computer and u have sp2 there would be a bluetooth icon on control panel and a my bluetooth place icon in my computer. but i have sp2 but i dont have does icons. and also my mrouter does not find the bluetooth devise. so the only way i can use my bluetooth is with its own software , (which is useless to me).
does any one know how i can fix this problem?
 

A:bluetooth dongle

There will be no blutooth icon if Windows doesn't know you have a blutooth thingie installed. You need the drivers for your dongle. Try ones from the manufacturer's website instead of the outdated ones you have on the CD.

Yes, you can buy PCMCIA and USB bluetooth adapters. If you have a free mini-PCI slot in your laptop then you can ask the manufacturer to fit a Blutooth card in there too.

If the thing for MSI is a mini-PCI device then it will probably work in any mini-PCI bay. That's why we have the mini-PCI standard for..

Hi, I hope someone has an idea... I have two laptops running windows xp pro with embedded bluetooth paired with each other. Everything was working fine for several weeks until I decided to customize the folder icon on Laptop B. As soon as I did that Laptop A could no longer send files to Laptop B -- it creates an FTP connection and then says "error copying file". when laptop A looks in laptop B's exchange folder, there is a desktop.ini file which was not there before I customized the folder. Yet Laptop B can't see the file in its own folder (even with hidden files being shown) so I can't do anything about it. Laptop B can send and grab from Laptop A -- Laptop A can grab from Laptop B, just can't send. Getting frustrating -- any ideas? Thanks!

A:help with bluetooth

both devices need to have BT enabled and make sure they are set in "discoverable" mode. Use the BT manager on the Axim to find the GPS device, once you see it, try to connect, it will then ask for a PIN, you can prolly find that in the documentation for the gps device, if not try 2003(if it is a Dell device) or 0000(the default used for many BT devices.

Hi
One of my friend in India purchased "HCL ME Sync 1.0 (U3) Tablet (WiFi, 3G via Dongle) by HCL" online . It says in many places that it supports Bluetooth but when I saw this I couldn't find any option for the bluetooth and don't know how to turn it on. Is there any one who has purchased it and help me out to turn the bluetooth on or how can we transfer files with some other bluetooth device. Even I couldn't find much good information on internet.
 

A:Hcl Me U3 tablet says file sharing with Bluetooth but don't know how to turn on the bluetooth ?

I don't see it listed in the spec sheet, nor the user guide.

On both of my android 4.2 devices, Bluetooth is listed after Wi-fi in Settings. I would think it's the same w/ android 4.1. It's possible the tablet doesn't have bluetooth.
