Hi: According to the parts list for your notebook it comes with a Ralink RT3290LE 802.11b/g/n 1x1 WiFi and Bluetooth 4.0 combination adapter. Did you try the W10 Ralink bluetooth driver? This package contains the driver installation package for the Mediatek/Ralink Bluetooth in the supported notebook models running a supported operating system.

Hi folks, I've got a Pavilion dv6-3138tx, product number QC331PA#ABG. I can't work out how to enable bluetooth - I'm not sure if there was an update to my machine recently, but there's no longer a bluetooth option in my system tray. I can see the device in BIOS so it's definitley there. I've had bluetooth working on this laptop before, connected to wireless headphones, and I'd like to set it up again. Windows update is all up to date, and I can see an 'unknown device' in device manager but apparently no drivers available... any ideas?

Hi: Below is the link to the product specs page for your notebook. It does not come with built in bluetooth networking, or that feature would have been listed along with the 1x1 802.11b/g/n WLAN Wireless Connectivity specification. The easiest thing you can do would be to purchase an external USB bluetooth adapter. You can also try and replace the internal wireless card with one listed in the service manual for your notebook that is also a combination wireless/bluetooth card. The card must be listed in the service manual and it must have the HP part number on it or it won't work. Because your notebook has an AMD processor, you cannot install any Intel wireless cards if any are listed in the manual.

A:Unable to use bluetooth transfer in hp pavilion dm4

Well your DM4 was built for Windows 7, so it depends if HP wrote Bluetooth drivers that will work under Windows 8. A quick check of HP's support site, shows that they have updated software for the DM4 series.

Software & driver downloads HP Pavilion dm4-3055dx Entertainment Notebook PC | HP? Support

There is a Bluetooth driver under networking.

The only other thing is to check the Device Manager and see if the Bluetooth is even recognized. If it isn't listed (could be listed as a generic unknown device if the driver isn't installed), you may have a hardware problem.

Check all that and install the driver. If it is still not listed in the Device Manager, go buy a $14 Bluetooth 4.0 usb device. Asus has a great one on Amazon. It should work great and will be more up current standards since it is 4.0.

Need exact model and the big question is whether it is in the "whitelist" era. Generally anything with a 4th gen Intel Core or newer is past the whitelist and you can install any wireless or wifi-bluetooth card of the same form factor as long as you have at least 2 antennae which I believe the G6 models do.

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 =)

I recently installed the latest version of the Toshiba Bluetooth Stack (v9.10.32T) for one of my desired applications to properly function. However, connecting my Bluetooth headphones through Toshiba's bluetooth manager does not seem to support the media buttons on the headset. These include Play/Pause and seek buttons. Before the Bluetooth stack, when I used my default bluetooth driver for connection, these controls had worked fine.

Also, there does not seem to be a specific setting to fix this in the Toshiba Bluetooth Stack Options.
How would I go about getting these controls back?

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!

Hello I have an issue with my Medialink USB Bluetooth Adapter Bluetooth LIT Adapter's USB Is Bluetooth OFF? Light IS When Blue - Version Class Smart Ready Adapter Model No MUA-BA Let me explain Okay I have setup my Medialink USB Bluetooth Adapter with the drivers for my Windows operating system USB Bluetooth Adapter's Blue Light IS LIT When Bluetooth Is OFF? Now when I plug this USB Bluetooth adapter into my USB port connector on my desktop computer it automatically lights up with a blue light on the Medialink USB Bluetooth Adapter itself and on my Windows system tray notification area I get the Bluetooth icon displayed as ON Then I go ahead and pair the computer and my device s example a Smartphone to connect which they do successfully When I am done using the Bluetooth technology I disconnect the Bluetooth connection from each device and then instead of leaving your USB Bluetooth adapter ON with my Windows operating system I go into my Windows system tray notification area and select Turn Adapter OFF I then get the red Bluetooth icon in my Windows system tray notification area demonstrating that my Bluetooth is indeed OFF and the Bluetooth blue light on the Medialink USB Bluetooth Adapter goes OFF or is not lit any longer Okay so far so good everything is normal However when I shutdown my Windows operating system and then restart the computer at some later point I notice that the Medialink USB Bluetooth Adapter still shows on my Windows system tray notification area as OFF okay normal BUT THE BLUE LIGHT ON THE MEDIA LINK USB BLUETOOTH ADAPTER IS NOW ON The only way I can turn off the blue light on the USB Bluetooth adapter is to manually go through the Windows system tray notification area turn ON the Bluetooth technology and then promptly turn back OFF the Bluetooth technology in order for the Medialink USB Bluetooth Adapter s blue light to go OFF again I find this to be a real pain and chore each time to have to go through these manual steps to turn OFF that Medialink USB Bluetooth Adapter s blue light when the Medialink USB Bluetooth Adapter s blue light SHOULD BE OFF TO BEGIN WITH I would assume after the system re- start and leaving the Medialink USB Bluetooth Adapter plugged into the USB port connector on my desktop computer if the Bluetooth technology is indeed OFF as set with the Windows operating system settings then the Medialink USB Bluetooth Adapter s blue light should be OFF as well BUT IT IS NOT I have no intention of consistently plugging in and out the Medialink USB Bluetooth Adapter when I plan on using it or not but instead leaving the Medialink USB Bluetooth Adapter always plugged into the my USB port connector on my desktop computer at all times and using the Windows system tray notification area s Bluetooth icon to turn ON and OFF the Bluetooth technology when needed I have contacted Medialink Mediabridge and they have informed me the rationale for this issue quot The only reason the light would be lit is if the bus power from that USB port was running I they looked for ways to manage the bus power settings of the USB host but was unable to find anywhere in the Control Panel that would allow you to adjust that particular setting quot Makes perfect sense to me that the bus power for the USB port is ALWAYS RUNNING and the computer starts the USB ports are powered and therefore the Medialink USB Bluetooth Adapter is always lit at system start until I turn off the Medialink USB Bluetooth Adapter via Window 's system tray notification area Specifically the Medialink USB Bluetooth Adapter is connected to one of the USB ports on the front of my desktop computer The front desktop USB port connects to one of the USB pin connectors on my ASUS P Q motherboard Further I have an OLDER ASUS P Q motherboard that does NOT support Bluetooth as part of its BIOS settings -- PRE-Bluetooth capability Therefore I installed the software on my Windows Professional -bit and drivers that came with my Medialink USB Bluetooth Adapt...

I bought a bluetooth dongle which for some reason isn't working in Windows 7. It shows up in Devices and Printers as "CSR Bluetooth Chip" and when I right click on it and select bluetooth settings, nothing happens. It shows up under Bluetooth Radios in device manager. As a test I tried using it in a Windows 10 VM. When connecting the USB dongle via VirtualBox it was referred to as "Uknnown device 0A12:0001 [134]" and it worked just fine in the VM. Any clue as to what is wrong?

Probably Windows 10 replaced the original Bluetooth driver with Microsoft driver which doesn't work well, if at all. Go to manufacturer's site and download the Bluetooth driver. If there is no Windows 10 driver, use that of 8.1 This should fix your connectivity problems.

I upgrade Vista to Windows 7 on my HP laptop DV4 1199ee. My bluetooth is not working and It seems that there is no bluetooth driver for windows 7.

A:windows 7 and bluetooth

I can't be certain, but you might try installing the Wireless driver. When configuring custom laptops I've noticed that the choice of Bluetooth is included in your choice of Wireless Networking so it's possible the driver is, too.

Or, contact HP & ask them?

FWIW I just ordered a new HP laptop with Windows 7, configuring it with Bluetooth. It'd be pretty stupid of HP to sell this configuration if they didn't have a Bluetooth driver for Windows 7. Of course this laptop might have different Bluetooth hardware than yours....besides, I've seen HP do plenty of stupid things in the past so this might just be one more. I'll find out when the laptop arrives next week.

Hello Tehkaztorer, welcome!

1st question is if you're 100% sure BT is enabled in your BIOS under the advanced menu:

Allows you to enable or disable the internal Bluetooth
• Disabled: The internal Bluetooth device is off and is
not visible to the operating system.
• Enabled: The internal Bluetooth device is enabled.

If you are... has that Dell techie proven to you that BT is working?
The following quote seems to state that windows does recognise your card?

on "control panel/hardware and sounds/printers and disp"
theres the "dell wireless 370 bluetooth mini card"
properties on this icon says everything is functional...

Have you tried downloading Dells latest drivers for that card?

Hi there @Mahmoud5000?,  Thank you for visiting the HP Support Forums and Welcome! This is a great site to get answers and ask questions. I have looked into the issue you are having with Bluetooth and came across some documents that may help you resolve the Bluetooth issue. You also mentioned that it had worked in Windows 7 but not in 8.1 or 10.  Have you tried to go into the Windows PC and Devices and tried to turn Bluetooth on in there? The first document I found is called Using Bluetooth Devices. This document may be helpful because it walks you through connecting devices.  I took a look at the driver's page for your Notebook and seen that the last Bluetooth Driver available is on the Windows 7 Operating System. On Windows 8 and Windows 10, it did not mention Bluetooth connections. You want to look into previous versions details also.  The second document I found is called Understanding and troubleshooting Bluetooth wireless technology. This document has other helpful information about drivers, making sure everything is bluetooth enabled, fixing bluetooth problems, etc.  Here is a link to the HP Support Assistant if you need it. Just download and run the application and it will help with the software and drivers on your system that need updating.  Here is a link from Microsoft called Connect to Bluetooth Devices.  Please follow the provided troubleshooting steps and re-post with any new information or details.  Have a great day!

You would need the bluetooth driver for your model of computerUnfortunately, your computer is rather old and there is no driver on Dell's website for that modelIn fact they don't even have XP drivers for that model also notice that you are rather limited in your memoryI found this article that is worth reading:

I bought a laptop recently. Wanted to transfer stuff from old pc to laptop. Bought bluetooth 2.0 for old pc, atek. as soon as i inserted it into the USB drive, win 7 automatically discovered and installed driver. But, the bluetooth is not working. It doesn't discover my laptop even though I have made it discoverable. Plus, the bluetooth settings won't open. What should I do now? Please help.

So not much deal is made of Bluetooth these days Its seems more as a legacy connection here in Windows land than anything while the Apple boys get Continuity Obviously mimicking Continuity isnt easy here in either First Windows Modern UI runs rough shot over Bluetooth giving you nothing more than a on off switch for headphones headset or on Windows 4.0 Bluetooth / 8.1 10 the like Second the software and to a lesser extent hardware seems all over the place The software drivers aren't to bad But finding an usable Setup Suite or anything but the on off switch that Windows gives you is Bluetooth 4.0 on Windows 10 / 8.1 harder Mainly it seems you have two Bluetooth camps Broadcom and Realtek there's also Intel but i think it uses Realtek's hardware There are of course third party Bluetooth USB dongles in which can give you a easier or harder time depending on the hardware The best of this imho has to be io gears gbu with Broadcom setup The Broadcom setup just installs your not kicked back to the OEM s to fish through service packs Basically the goal is Bluetooth Device Control Windows Broadcom Bluetooth Basically the only way to Bluetooth Device Control is through Device and Printers Every other way will take you to the Modern UI Windows with IO Gear's Bluetooth usb Broadcom Setup Here's a link to IO Broadcom Suite http iogear custhelp com app answers detail a id Here's a better How To over here link here link I have bad luck with Broadcom's own setup usually sends me back to the OEM Broadcom https www broadcom com support gid Btw i do have an Intel card so ill add that later The much hyped intel dual band ac w bluetooth

I am having difficulty to get my laptop paired with a Bluetooth enabled cell phone. If I attempt to connect from the cell phone to my pc, a key code is asked for and needs be entered.

My question is how I can get this key code which needs be entered on the Bluetooth Device. On the laptop I navigated from Control Panel and to Bluetooth Devices, then clicked Add Wireless Device, but no device is detected even though the Bluetooth on the cell phone was turned on. Device Manager indicates drivers for the Bluetooth device are installed correctly.

hi, my laptop had Windows 8.1 Pre installed to i installed Windows 8.1 Pro on it .. before upgrading, naturally all is working well, i backed up my Drivers using an Open Source Software i downloaded from SourceForge

after upgrading, i installed all drivers, all is working well except for my Bluetooth Radio .. though in the Device Manager, it is not showing any error as it says "The device is working properly" .. yet even when my Laptop's Bluetooth is in Discoverable Mode, none of my Phone, Tablet nor other Laptops can detect this Laptop .. Vice Versa, my laptop doesnt discover any devices too, not even my Bluetooth Mouse .. though my Phone was discovering my Mouse ..

i tried updating my drivers, but there was no luck ..
i tried reinstalling my drivers, there was also no luck ..
i tried resetting multiple times, still no luck ..

im running out of luck, please i hope someone knows anything about it

I recently purchased these 2 items. Hoping for a headset for my phone and my pc. - Kinivo BTH220 Black Bluetooth Stereo Headphone – Supports Wireless Music Streaming and Hands-Free Ca - Mini Bluetooth USB 2.0 Micro Adapter Dongle

It worked perfect with my Andriod, but the Dongle does not seem to want connect with the headset. It seems the Dongle was not made to work with Windows 7 64bit. The bluetooth dongle will recognize the headset when I try to sync them, but will not actually let them connect for any audio. Here's a pic of the error.

I've tried reconnecting it multiple times. Been searching online for the past few hours for drivers and programs to get it to work, but no such luck. Any help will be appreciated.

When I tried the bluesoliel software,it disabled the native bluetooth
service in 7 and did not reenable it when it was uninstalled.
Try this.........
1. Click Start and type services in the Search programs and files text area

2. Click Services in the Programs list that appears

3. From the Services window, browse the list of services and find the Bluetooth Support Service

4. Double-click Bluetooth Support Service

5. Select Automatic from the Startup type and then click OK

6. Close the Services window and unplug and re-plug the USB device
