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.)

Hello, I have a brand new ASUS laptop with REAltek and WINdows 8.1. The frustrating issue I have is that my headphone audio sounds as if there is an echo-like sound to it. More like a sewer-pipe. I have restarted the audio programs under computer management. set the default in REALTEK to 16 bit 48000, and all devices seem to be operating fine. I even uninstalled SKYPE as suggested.The test in REALTEK is also okay. Please, any assistace would be more than appreciated.

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, its 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.

I have a speaker installed in my cpu and it work just fine.
my computer is windows 7.
and my headphone does make sound when I plug it on my computer and work just fine with other device than my computer.
Question :
why is it only the right side of the headphone is working while the left side of it only make a static noise?
please help. I've tried everything I could find in youtube and other resource but none of them seems to have the same problem as mine

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 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").

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?


A:Difference in Bluetooth adapters?

Do you see any yellow (!) in the device manager when either of the Bluetooth devices are installed?

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.

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


A:Bluetooth Problem

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.
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 have a headset set with a mic. It has 3.5mm plugs for the mic and the speakers. Just recently they stopped working together. What I mean is if I have either one of them plugged in, that one works. If I have both plugged in, the sound manager appears as if neither of them are plugged in. I've tried other headphones with the jacks and get the same result. I've tried reinstalling the driver, doing a system restore and using CCleaner to clean my registry. I've also messed around with just about every setting in the audio manager. Anyone have any ideas? It's odd that they work independently, which leads me to believe that the insertion detection is working just fine.

I have a Toshiba Satellite R845-S95 with Windows 7.

I've recently bought a laptop online with no OS installed on it. I've installed Windows 7 Ultimate Edition and downloaded all drivers from the manufactures website. Everything works fine except there is no audio coming through the headphone jack or built-in speakers. I have spent majority of today looking online for answers on how to fix this issue and have found nothing that works.

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!

Hi all,
I am having a windows xp sp2, and suddenly I start to expiriance problems with my speakers/headphone, its not working, but whats funny is, if I reboot my PC then its working again for let say an hour or so, but then it stop, and its not working until my next reboot.
1) I tried to update my audio drivers (which is intel) but still didnt help.
2) I tried with microsoft fix it, but I had nothing changed.

can anyone advice me what I can do?

A:Speaker/headphone not working

Hey Auto2. The first thing I would do is bring your machine up to SP3 as it's been out for years now. XP with SP2 is not supported. You can download then double-click on the self executing SP3 file from the link below. This 316MB file is for the 32bit version of XP which most people have.Disregard the IT Pros nomenclature, takes about 15-20 minutes on average to install once you start it.

Hi guys quick question,

I was thinking about buying a pair of MM-1s, but as you probably already know they are a 2.0 set.
As a result, they lack a subwoofer for the "boom!"

Also, currently I have a set of x540 logitech which sounds alright, but I really need something better. So the real question here is am I able to run the digital output out of both my headphone jacks, where the x540 receives sound as well as usb where the MM-1s recieve audio. This way a ghetto 7.1 setup could be made!

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.

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.

I tried a quick search and couldn't find an answer.

I've managed to break off a bit of my headphone connector into the jack so my laptop thinks I have headphones plugged in while it is infact just a bit of metal, this is making it impossible for me to get any sound out of my laptop.

I was wondering if anyone knew any way of disabling the jack so I can get sound out of my speakers

A:I broke my headphone jack

I don't think it is possible to turn off the jack. That bit of metal is telling the computer to turn off the internal speakers. The computer still thinks that the headphones are connected. See if you can remove that bit of metal...

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

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.

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.

I had to reinstall WinXP on my Dell XPS M1530, and now Windows doesn't detect the bluetooth unit. The symbol in the line with power buttons etc is lighted though. 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.

Does anyone know how to do that? It worked before, but now I can't figure out how, even after hours of googling...

A:Bluetooth Problems

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.

My headphone port was damaged when the headphone plug was forced out and look some plastic part of my notebook. Then when I plug headphones in, it is not stable and moves around. I suspect some metal part has bent away from the port. I am too sacred to open the notebook myself and check it first. or it it expensive to replace?
What should I do? The warranty has expired.

Expensive to replace. Difficult to find. Your best bet is finding another with a bad board or a broken screen to trade parts, methinks. But any audio tech or a friend skilled in audio should be able to repair fromspari parts.

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.

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?

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.

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.

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.

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?

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

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.

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.

And both computers are connected (not entirely sure how to do this properly either) via bluetooth so the second computer can wirelessly surf the net.

You need a network to provide a wireless link for the internet - and I regret that the bluetooth connection does not work like this. Sorry.

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 .

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?

I have an HP ze4145 (Laptop) and my headphone jack after 2 years has broken on me. Before it completely broke I would have to move the plug around inside the jack to try and get the right connection. Now that im completely missing a headphone jack I have two questions. First, is there any way i can disable the jack and force all of the audio to come out of my laptop speakers? and Second, Would i be able to buy a new jack or soundcard and how much would it cost on average? Thank you to anyone who can help.

Right, this is just a query really, I know a lot of the time, im leaving my phone either in the shed, garage, or somewhere in the house.

then i was thinking the other day.

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.

Any chance of a broken headphone cable? Try with another set of headphones or speakers before blaming the computer.

I installed a MS Bluetooth Wireless Mouse amp Keyboard on my PC It was not as easy as the directions claim Even though the PC has built in Bluetooth I & Wireless Mouse Bluetooth Keyboard still used as was recommended a MS Bluetooth Transceiver in a USB All functions of the mouse and keyboard work However after shutting down and starting back up the scroll on the mouse and the specialty keys on the keyboard don Bluetooth Wireless Mouse & Keyboard t work The only way to fix it is to basically start over I have to uninstall the mouse drivers in Programs I have to uninstall the transceiver drive in some supplemental files found in Bluetooth Then I have to reboot the reinstall all drives There is no place to go and install the transceiver drive you just have to hope the PC does it Sometimes a message comes up saying it failed at installing Eventually when all is installed I have to go to Bluetooth and let it recognize the mouse and keyboard which doesnt always happen even when triggering them to signal the PC My question is Once installed and working what can I do so that it will work when Bluetooth Wireless Mouse & Keyboard I reboot nbsp

Ditch the bluetooth and go regular wireless mouse/keyboard

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.
