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've been able to connect my Windows 8.1 laptop to my phone for some time. But since yesterday I haven't been able to. The phone and laptop detect each other. But they don't connect. I tried to uninstall the bluetooth driver which automatically reinstalls at boot up on the laptop.. But that doesn't work. What should I do?

A:Laptop Can't Connect to Devices through Bluetooth - HELP

You'll need to look into the Bluetooth setting you have that somewhere different computers have different ways of accessing the Bluetooth setting.

I have ASUS N751JK (Win 8.1) and I'm trying to connect Philips SHB7150FB to it via Bluetooth and it doesn't work.

Latest drivers from ASUS installed, headset is charged and on (blue light is flashing).

PC can not find any Bluetooth devices around, so I blame PC, probably hardware/drivers?

(or I'm an idiot and missing something obvious)

Any help is appreciated

I had vista What is Cant connect bluetooth headset to Windows 7 laptop.. wrong with Windows I tried going back to a previous version of drivers that HP released before current ones and even tried formatting reinstalling windows but same result I checked headset's properties under services I tried selecting deselecting Audio Sink Handsfree telephony Headset Remote Control Remotely Controllable Device but same result I Any ideas or tips I am just so frustrated I cant think of anything else to try

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.

Hi @Sid3296, I have read about your HP 15-ac122tu Notebook and Bluetooth not connecting to your phone. Here is a link that might help.  I would check to make sure Bluetooth is on. It shows you how to do that under Connecting Bluetooth. A device such as computer might need to have the Discovery setting turned on. To turn on Discovery in Windows 8, from the Start screen, type Change Bluetooth to open the Search charm, and then select Change Bluetooth settings from the search results.  Please let me know how this goes. This is a great question other customers may also be wondering about; please click the Accept as Solution if you feel this post has helped you, or could help others.

Hello, first post, hopefully not the last post.

Anyway, the laptop I am using is an Acer Aspire 5251. The website said bluetooth is built in. So on to trying to connect: I go to "Add a Device" and search for Bluetooth devices while I turn on the searching mechanism on my NXT Lego brick. However, my laptop is unable to find it. I know the brick's bluetooth is working fine because it was able to connect to my iPod and even an outdated flip phone. To you NXT owners: what can I do? I will give additional information if inquired.

EDIT: I feel like this is the wrong sub-forum, so please inform me if it is.

A:Trying to connect a Lego NXT Brick to My Laptop via Bluetooth

Nah, the forum is fine, if needed the admins will move it.
Welcome to Seven Forums.
I'm not Bluetooth literate but I know in Device Manager it should show up in its own category or Human Interface Devices maybe. Does the brick have any install media with it? I don't know what that is either.

Slim Divers might help you find a driver for the Bluetooth device. Be aware that it sometimes is buggy and will show drivers for non-existent hardware.

Hi all,

Question is as per the subject line but the reason I ask is that although each laptop is visible to the other in Devices and Printers when I try to send a file from the Vista laptop to the Win 7 laptop I get a message failure message. 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)?

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

will the PC connect by cable to the router OK

can you post an xirrus screen shot

are other devices able to connect by wireless to your network

Run Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector
Download and install
If you cannot access the internet with this PC, then you will need to copy the program across to the faulty PC
Save the file to a USB flash drive or other removable media. Plug it into the working computer with internet access and copy the file and install the program.
You will now need to take a screen shot and copy that back to the working PC and attach the screen shot in a reply on the forum here.

If you do not have another PC - do you have a phone connected to the internet - can you photograph the result and post the image in a reply ( the site now appears to require a business email, so try the direct link below)
Direct link to the program is here

{If the above link does not work heres alternative links,77196-order,4/download.html}

Then run and install the program - on a wireless enabled PC/Laptop
if you get an error - You need will need to have NET Framework installed for the WiFi Inspector to function.
On windows 8 - (i do not have windows 8) but, it would appear that, When you first try to run, you may get a message that .net framework is needed, and included in that message is a link to download/install.

Run the program

A user guide is available here

post a screen shot of the program running.
if there are a lot of networks showing can you click on "networks" top lefthand area - so we can see all the network information.

post which SSID name is yours, its located in the list, under network "Adapter Name" (1st column)
For a reliable (or robust as the Xirrus user guide says) wireless connection you need a signal of about -70 dBm or better. "A desirable signal level for a robust Wi-Fi connection will be green".
note: the signal level is a negative number, so for example -88 is worst and -40 is better

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.

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.

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???

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!

Make sure that you haven't turned it off by accident. On some laptops there is a small button/slide somewhere around the front/edge of the laptop and on others there is usually a "FN" key that needs to be pressed in conjunction with one of the "F" keys (should have a bluetooth logo on it) ... hope this helps a bit pal

I can't connect to my laptop using bluetooth (it finds it but can never connect), so I was hoping for a way to make the laptop appear as a headset instead.

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.


2. The bluetooth adapter itself is faulty.

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 to do would be to purchase an external usb bluetooth adapter in order to have bluetooth functionality. You may also be able to replace the wireless card with one that has bluetooth, listed in the service manual for your notebook. Make sure there are two antennas connected to the wireless card if you plan on replacing it.

Dear members,

I have got a new Acer Travelmate 4335 laptop. I am having a wifi connection at home.

Now even when I dont open any websites, when I double click on network icon in system tray, I see that connection is active with send and receive activity going on. Moreover, just normal surfing (opening websites without any other heavy downloads) shows much receive bytes. For eg just for logging into yahoo messenger, i shows 1MB of received data!! And checking a couple of mails takes it to 5 MB!!

I have broadband connection tariff as per my usage/download. Now due to this heavy downloading without any visible reason, is giving me high bills.

I would appreciate if anyone can help me on this.

Thanks and regards,

NB:- I have turned-off windows auto updates. I use quick heal anti virus, and have turned off the auto updates

I dont believe you can do it without any programs per say. Windows should have built in accessories, etc. that you can use to transfer them; but really the best way to do that is via a card reader(like a micro sd card or something similar

I would be open to wiping the drive and replacing with a better OS, if my hardware would support that.Hi,
There are many Linux operating systems that your hardware is likely to support. Modern Linux operating systems are just as easy, if not easier to use, in comparison to XP. Some are even designed to look like XP.
We would be delighted to help you decide which one might be most suitable for you and your hardware in the Linux forum.
Here's a template that was designed for this very purpose:[Post Template] What Distribution/Flavor of Linux Should I Use?
I've certainly never had any problems using .pdf documents with Linux.
The only thing that Linux doesn't do well is run Windows software. So if there are Windows programs that you use for which there are no suitable Linux alternatives, another option is to dual-boot XP and Linux.

A:PC laptop does not find bluetooth headset

I recommend you to once make sure that your laptop has bluetooth in it, and if it has bluetooth installed in it ensure that bluetooth is switched on. Normally laptops have a wireless swtich for wireless and bluetooth that needs to be turned on.

Hi I have a Compaq R Z Laptop computer that vs. Laptop Compaq PCMCIA Bluetooth I bought in December from the HP website I accidently forgot to get internal bluetooth so I bought a PCMCIA card With my previous laptop I used a USB adapter and before I got the PCMCIA card I had it installed in the Compaq laptop When I received the card and installed it it had an error so I went to the device manager and it said Windows cannot load the device driver Compaq Laptop vs. Bluetooth PCMCIA for this hardware The driver may be corrupted or missing Code Click Troubleshoot to start the troubleshooter for this device Click to expand So I thought about it and decided to install the software I thought it would be plug and play Anyway After I installed Compaq Laptop vs. Bluetooth PCMCIA it it still didn t work so I went to the device manager again and I got this message This device cannot find enough free resources that it can use Code If you want to use this device you will need to disable one of the other devices on this system Click Troubleshoot to start the troubleshooter for this device Click to expand I don t think that this is suppose to happen and I don t think there is any other hardware that I can disable I think this has to do with my old USB adapter So I thought that if I plugged it in and went into the device manager and clicked on quot uninstall this device quot the PCMCIA would work There is only one problem I ve lost the usb adapter it was only a of an inch long I would really appreciate any help you guys can offer nbsp

Hi Friends,
I've a typical situation here:
1. A PC with Vista Ultimate installed and a Bluetooth dongle (Widcomm drivers) connected to a broadband internet via LAN card.
2. A laptop with Windows XP and bluetooth inbuilt.

Now I wish to share the internet connection of the desktop to the laptop over bluetooth. Is it possible?

One more issue I face in Vista is that when I try to enable the ICS for the internet connection, I get this error "An error occurred while Internet connection sharing was being enabled.
(null)" - Screen shot attached.

Can someone please help with this problem?

Thanks in advance!

A:Internet Sharing between PC & Laptop over Bluetooth

OK, here's another update:
I stumbled upon the Event viewer of the system and the log entry corresponding to the ICS error says:
"The ICS_IPV6 was unable to allocate  bytes of memory. This may indicate that the system is low on virtual memory, or that the memory manager has encountered an internal error."

Yes that special character is there before the word 'bytes'!

Now it seems the problem is with the IPv6. My ISP surely doesn't provide anything on IPv6. So can I somehow remove it completely? I've already unchecked it from my network properties, but no use!

The bluetooth feature for my HP laptop [15-ac178nr] stopped working after Realtek RTL8723BE Bluetooth Driver for MS Windows update. Bluetooth device no longer appears within the device manager. This driver only appears within the list of Network Adapters as a "WiFi Adapter". I would typically roll back the driver but, that option is not selectable within the properties menu. Please advise.

Hi @A2Ruff, Welcome to the HP Support Community! I read your post about your HP 15-ac178nr Notebook not detecting the Bluetooth. I would uninstall the Reattek driver and restart the Notebook.

Hi: Below are the the links to the W10 wireless and bluetooth drivers you need. It also appears that you are missing the AMD graphics driver (video controller). This package provides the AMD High-Definition (HD) Graphics Driver and Catalyst Control Center for supported notebook models that are running a supported operating system. For notebooks with switchable graphics modes, this package includes drivers for both graphics processing units (GPUs). Switchable graphics enable users to switch between a power-saving graphics mode (normally used under battery power) and a high-performance graphics mode. If high-definition multimedia interface (HDMI) video output is supported, this package also installs the HDMI Audio Driver. File name: sp71870.exe

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:


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:

Keep us posted with the results so we can advise you further.

I am trying to connect a Logtech wireless headset. I cannot find any settings for Bluetooth, or driver updates. On the bottom of the laptop I found the model number 15-1010wm. I tried connecting wth Control Panel>Devices and Printers, and the connect a device option. It found a phone, but not the headphones. In the summer I was looking in the settings and saw Bluetooth, either on my laptop or my siblings' (neither of them have Bluetooth options now). I have looked in Device Manager on mine and my siblings' laptop, and saw no Bluetooth. I have looked at multiple guides and none of them work. I know the headphones work because I connected them to my tablet.  Does anyone have any ideas or links to Bluetooth drivers that might help?

my laptop keyboard broke down a while ago, as of now, i don't have extra money for me to be able to replace it. now im using USB keyboard only, since my current keyboard doesn't have a fn key in it, i can't open the shortcut for the bluetooth using the keyboard.

1. is there any other way to open/enable it without using the keyboard?
2. i also can't see the BLUETOOTH device in the Device Manager, is that normal?

**i can use my bluetooth before my laptop broke down. and i saw in another forum that if you cant enable the bluetooth physically, the windows will not detect it but the forum is abt windows tablet so im not sure if it also applies with laptops.
