Multiple Simultaneous Bluetooth Devices Problem

Q: Multiple Simultaneous Bluetooth Devices Problem

I have a 20FB running Win 10 with a Logitech K810 Bluetooth keyboard that I've been using with a corded mouse without any problems. I recently purchased M557 Bluetooth mouse and now, intermittently, but consistently, my keyboard stokes are inaccurate, with multiple repeating letters and extra spaces. If I turn my mouse off, the keyboard again works fine. Disconnecting and reconnecting both devices did not solve this problem. The Lenovo System Update utlility indicates that the device driver is up to date. The Lenovo supplied device driver version is 18.1.1546.2762. Nonetheless, I was able to solve this problem by updating the device driver from Window?s Device Manager to Intel?s latest driver, version 19.0.1621.3340.

i have installed the correct driver for this belkin bluetooth usb dongle model: F8T012XX1

but in device manager, it has the belkin device and microsoft bluetooth enumerator, which is great. but when u get further down the list. it has a tab named "other devices" and then a subtab with "bluetooth peripheral device" which has an exclemation mark on it.

i have searched for driver software using the update service but it cant find no update.

i have looked for the name of the manufacturer but found nothing.

i then disabled the unknown device, and sent a picture to my mobile phone. which confirmed that it was not the belkin bluetooth device. so i uninstalled the unknown device, restarted the computer. then when i logged in, it said that it had found a new device and wanted me to find the CD that came with it..

i would be greatful if any1 could help me on this..

thanks in advance

I'm experiencing a number of problems with Windows7 and Internet Explorer 8 which seem to have arisen more or less simultaneously. Perhaps I've just caused some of them while trying to fix the others? I haven't actually been able to fix any of them, so I'd be very grateful for some help.

The problems, in the order I became aware of them are:

1. Internet Explorer freezes when attempting open webpages using Flash. I uninstalled Flash Player and the problem ceased only to return after reinstallation of Flash Player.

2. I'm unable to download and install some software, specifically Chrome, Firefox and CCleaner. The installers seem to run but then nothing happens.

3. When I start Internet Explorer I get two error messages: "ButtonMonitor has stopped working" and a second informing me that a program on my computer corrupted my choice of Google as my default search engine.

4. My first attempt to run System Restore failed. My attempts using earlier restore points were declared successes by Windows but my desktop background had gone black and Windows Media Center wouldn't run. I'm using Norton Internet Security 2010, which I gather could be part of the problem.

I'm stumped, and all advice will be most gratefull received.

Thanks, Ray Sim

I hope no one thinks I am being a little lazy but I have a few questions about multiple and simultaneous desktop usage with regards to windows 7 and server 2008.

At our workplace at the moment we are using a separate company to host some kind of cloud service that lets IT students (studying the basics of MS Office products) and company staff to log in to a remote desktop from any PC. Goodness knows how much the company are paying for this service but I would imagine that it would be about the same as employing someone full time.

We actually have a server with Server 2008 running on it but I have not had a really good look at it yet because of time constraints. It is just sitting there gathering dust because the previous person running the department didnít seem to have a clue how to manage the PCs on the network.

I know how to get a remote desktop running on a computer using a windows 7 operating system but you can only have 1 user account running at the same time. As soon as you attempt to remotely connect to another account on that host computer from another computer the original remote client is disconnected. That would obviously be no good if we wanted several people accessing those accounts from various computers.

Is this what server 2008 can do? In other words, can server 2008 be used to host multiple password protected desktops on remote computers on a LAN simultaneously?

We need some kind of arrangement like this because students come in on different days and ... Read more

A:Multiple/ simultaneous remote desktops

I don't know everything you need to do this. But at a minimum, you'll need to purchase licensing for terminal services. By default, all the Windows Server platforms support 2 concurrent connections. You'll have to purchase the appropriate license for the number of concurrent users you'll want to support. I think the other part is you'll also need to purchase the version of MS Office or the licensing which allows it to be used with terminal services. Not sure on this.

I used to work with someone who could open up multiple Find sessions in Outlook and find 20-25 items very quickly in a fraction of time that it would take me to do the same number of finds one-by-one.

But I don't recall the method to do this. Does anyone know how this is done?

I tried Advanced Find for a find, then did another Advanced Find but this had the effect of freezing both sessions with no results.

Okay, so after much research, and some trial and error, I have yet to find a solution to my problem.

I would like to be able to use 2 networks at the same time, one is a wireless internet connection through my USB adapter, and the other is a wired Ethernet connection to a separate router, which i use to connect to a Playstation 3 with Playstation Media Server.
Frequently I am wanting to download a video from the internet while watching a different one on the PS3.

The problem is when I connect both networks, I am unable to use the internet.

Having said that, I also must list the things i have tried, and what I have learned.
1. I made sure that the two networks have very different IP addresses and Default Gateways.

2. I have tried to change the priorities of the networks through Control Panel>Network and Internet>Network and Sharing Center>Change Adapter Settings. Then right clicking the connections, clicking Properties, clicking both Internet Protocol Properties (one at a time), clicking Advanced, un-checking Automatic metric, and placing my own values. Obviously i set the wireless to the lowest priority and the wired higher.

3. Also in the Network Connections list, pressing Alt, clicking Advanced, then clicking Advanced Settings; I set the order of the connections, wireless first, then wired.

Short answer... No.

You would need two wireless cards to do that.

Hi,

I was hoping someone might be able to assist me. I just recently set up the Iogear Wireless Audio/Video Kit (GUWAVKIT) in order to wirelessly stream audio and video (my computer desktop) to a remote source (TV, projector, etc.). The video streaming seems to work great (extending my desktop, mirroring it, etc.), but I'm having some difficulty with the audio set-up.

Basically, the set-up entailed adding another audio playback device within Windows (it did this automatically when I connected the USB transmitter to the computer). Ideally, I'd like to be able to have the audio transmit and playback through the wireless device when the video is also wirelessly being transmitted. However, it seems the only way to achieve this is to go into Control Panel -> Sound and Audio Devices -> Audio tab -> Sound Playback / Default Device and change it from the built in audio card to the USB one that has been added. Obviously, this is a pain.

However, I'd settle for having the audio output to both the internal audio card as well as the USB transmitter for playback via the remote source. This would allow it to come through the speakers I have set-up and connected directly to my computer, as well as the remote source when it is turned on (the remote source is a TV right now, so it seems it would only playback through the TV when I have the input set to "PC"). I can't seem to figure out any way to set up Windows to playback the audio through more than one... Read more

Hello. I am thinking of upgrading our family's two computer systems, which are about 8 years old. To build/buy a decent computer will cost about $500. Could be done a bit cheaper, but then two computers will double the price.

So, I was thinking. Most modern computers have multiple output video cards. Most computers have multiple USB ports. Would it be possible to plug two keyboards, two mice, and two monitors into one computer and have two people using that computer simultaneously? This should work just fine from a hardware perspective. With USB hubs and multiple video cards, maybe 4 or more people could use the same computer simultaneously. I would like to do this on Windows 7.

I come from a UNIX background and this sort of thing is done all the time on UNIX systems, either text mode or graphics mode. The available hardware is very ripe for this type of usage. Its easy to get multiple monitors and multiple keyboard/mouse connected to a computer. Even multiple sound cards. CPUs are powerful and multi-core. Memory is cheap and plentiful. I think this would be a very good use of multi-core CPUs.

I would think this situation is very common. Several people in close proximity to each other would each like to use a computer. Why should they each have their own computer at increased cost, when modern computers and operating systems are so powerful? They could share one computer.

Does anyone know how to configure Windows 7 to do this? ... Read more

Hi,
 
I'm not sure whether what i want to achieve is possible, but here s my objective. Having just got into music streaming from my Windows 7 pc, using Firefox as browser and Deezer for the music i wanted to achieve multiple room listening rather than just listening from the stereo speakers attached to the pc. So, i've plugged in a bluetooth usb adapter (Advent, with EDR) and connected up a harman/karman BTA10 bluetooth adapter to the hi-fi in my living room and purchased a Minx Go (Cambridge Audio) portable wireless music system speaker. To my great relief all installed successfully and all the devices play - but only individually.
 
The question therefore is can i, and how do i go about adjusting the computer audio settings to have music playing simultaneously via the hi-fi in the living room, the pc connected speakers in the back room and the portable Minx bluetooth speaker?  When i looked at Control Panel and then 'Sound' i've found how to change the default playback source between the items listed, but can't see how i can get all the items to play music from Deezer at the same time for that multi-room sound experience.
 
I'd appreciate any help you can give, and in simple steps because i'm no computer techie!

A:Is it possible to create simultaneous audio output from multiple speakers?

I can say that overall it is possible to do…maybe not with your specific hardware setup. For example, if you are using a system using AirPlay to stream (i.e. Airport Expresses connected to speakers, other computers, iOS devices, AppleTV), then iTunes music can be streamed with to multiple locations with no additional software. I have such a setup. If you want to stream non-iTunes content, then you can use a third-party program called Airfoil to stream that other content.Now, obviously, unless you want to switch gears to an Airplay system (or something else, the above does not seem to help much.Where is helps is that maybe there is some other third party application that can do something similar for your situation.You might see if this helps:http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/66484-63-output-audio-devices-time

Hello

I've been trying to figure this one out for quite a while now with no avail. My desktop computer - Intel Core2 Q6600 quadcore 2,4ghz @ 2,9ghz, 2x2GB DDR2 800mhz, ATI Radeon 5750, 500 gig HDD, Asus P5KPL-VM mobo, Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit, Thomson TG789vn router and all the latest drivers from hardware suppliers installed or tested on all hardware for whether they would fix the issue - has problems with latency and download speeds at intervals that seem pretty random. The issue would occur about once every 1-10 minutes whilst playing a game like League of Legends or Call of Duty if I were also simultaneously listening to music from Spotify and talking thru Skype. Spotify has the greatest impact on this I think. Also, any peer to peer software with more than 15-20 allowed simultaneous connections just about floods itself and my whole internet connection to something quite unusable. My download speed is 24Mb/s, upload 1Mb/s.

What I believe is not the cause is my router. My laptop has the same OS and doesn't have any trouble with multiple connections even while using the wireless feature of the router, so that seems to be out of the picture.

This problem has been around for a long while and I'm not absolutely sure about how or when it began. I'd guess it started since the end of last august. It might have been caused by a windows update. This problem didn't exist before that.

Okay, so I don't really know if a solution is out there, but here is the situation I'm in. I only have one available USB port left which I am currently using for the Logitech Bluetooth dongle that came with my Logitech K750 solar keyboard. I would also like to attach my Samsung wep410 headset for Skype calls.

I have tried to discover the headset with and without Logitechs software installed with no luck. I then checked device manager, which does not show the dongle as a Bluetooth receiver/device. My assumption from that is that Logitech has it setup to only receive from their own devices.

Since I have no room for another dongle (and a hub isn't really ideal). Is there some way to force the dongle to detect normal Bluetooth devices? I've searched for a custom driver or other work around with no luck so far. This is on a computer running Windows 7 64bit.

Windows bluetooth discovery is not finding any devices. On my android phone I can turn on discovery and locate the PC, and it prompts me to enter the passcode on the PC. However no devices show up.

I have tried three different USB dongles and installed the generic Windows bluetooth driver. (One of the devices prompted me for a different driver which was downloaded and installed, but then the radio was not recognized) I've tried three different devices as well (a mouse, a trackpad, and the android phone).

I've installed "Bluetooth Command Line Tools" and it tells me that the radio is installed and working properly, as does the Windows device manager. Bluetooth icon shows in the system tray when the dongle is plugged in.

I've changed the settings in services.msc as detailed in other posts (changing to local account with my username and password).

I've turned off firewall and antivirus, no change.

Constructive ideas, suggestions, and opinions are welcome. I can't just throw it out the window, though, as this is a work computer. All I want to do is add a Bluetooth trackpad.

I've just installed BlueSoliel (trail version which will expire in 30 days) and now all my devices can pair and connect.

Hi guys,

Our ISP has recently changed our router from Prolink H6300G to Prolink H5004N.
Our Prolink H5004N is wired to the phone line.
All devices connect to the internet via WLAN.
No devices are attached to the router via LAN.

The unusual problem is, some wireless devices connect to the internet just fine, others connect intermittently.
Below are the list of devices:

ASUS Notebook PCs x 2 (connect)
MSI Notebook PC (connect)
Apple iPad2 (connect)
LG LED SmartTV (connect)
Sony PlayStation 3 Slim (connect)
RedFox Netbook (intermittent)
Samsung Tablet PC (intermittent)
Sony XPERIA Smartphones x 3 (intermittent)

It is not that the red devices could not connect, they do so, but a very irregular and on/off internet connection.

I am stumped by the variety of devices that constantly connect and those that do not.

Does changing from G to N may in any way cause this?

Hi all! I have problems when i try to transfer files between my PC and other devices (mobile phones, PC's) via bluetooth.

I can send files normally but i cannot receive them. When I try to receive, the connection just fails. Do you have any idea what might be the problem and how to solve it? Could it be something to do with serial ports? At the moment I am using different serial ports for sending and receiving (COM23 and COM24). How can I change the serial ports so that they would the same for sending and receiving..?
Or has it anything to do with serial ports?

I have Windows Vista Home Premium 32bit and my bluetooth device is Generic Bluetooth Radio manifactured by Cambridge Silicon Radio Ltd.

Br,
John

Hi!
I have read a lot about problems on W7 with Bluetooth, but none of the solutions seem to apply to me. When I doubleclick on the Bluetooth icon in the taskbar the Bluetooth Devices window comes up, the green bar loads to 99% and nothing happens, even though I have 2 turned on Bluetooth devices near the dongle. I have also tried using the software (BlueSoleil) that came with the dongle, but that doesnt work either.
All the devices in the device manager are installed correctly (no unknown devices). I am using W7 Premium.
Any help is appreciated.
Thank you

I have a Dell Inspiron 1545, running Vista 64 bit.
Wireless works fine.  I have never tried connecting with Bluetooth before.
I was looking for a portable speaker but they are all Bluetooth operable.
So, decided to see if my laptop connects with Bluetooth.
According to the configuration it does.
It has a Dell Wireless 1510 802.11n Half Mini Card.
I have a Bluetooth Devices file in my Control Panel but no devices that it connects with.
Does anyone have any suggestions or help?
 

A:PC does not recognize bluetooth devices

According to Dell, these are the specs for your wireless card.  As you can see, there is nothing to show that your wireless card has any Bluetooth capability.  Without more information, I cannot say why you would have a "Bluetooth Devices file" in your Control Panel.  Should you want me to look into this further, please post screenshots of your Control Panel and Device Manager windows.

I can NOT un-pair devices this way! Note that removing the device via Device Manager does NOT remove it, as it comes right back.

All devices have installed, the bluetooth module shows up in the device manager. I've downloaded and installed the Atheros Bluetooth driver from the Acer website. However when I try to add a bluetooth device it doesn't find anything - it just says "Searching for devices" and eventually says "No devices found". I've placed two mice in pairing mode but neither show up (Logitech M555b and Kliq KL-TSMBT3), it doesn't even detect my iPhone.

Hey guys,

I have an Acer Aspire V3, running Windows 7 SP1 x64, with internal bluetooth.

I tried with the standard Generic Bluetooth Adapter and also with the Atheros_7.4.0.126 Bluetooth Adapter which comes with the driver-package of my laptop.

I checked that the Bluetooth Service is started and running.

However, my bluetooth is unable to detect any devices, even though I have a bluetooth mouse and bluetooth phone lying next to the laptop, both enabled and detectable.

Clicking on the bluetooth-tray and then 'Add a Device' just brings up a screen saying 'Searching for devices...'.

I have tried installing the latest drivers from windows update, the Dell website, a patch from the website and the latest drivers from the broadcomm website, and it still behaves in exactaly the same mannor with all of these. The module worked fine before the win 7 install, and I am at a total loss as to where to go next. Can anyone help?

My HP notebook was recently reinstalled with Window 7 Professional 64bit. Now it won't share files with my Samsung galaxy S5 via bluetooth (and vice versa). When pairing the 2, Windows states "device driver software not successfully installed".

Windows support suggests the problem is with my device (phone) and I should download the driver directly from the manufacturer's website. I tried sharing to a friend's phone (S3 mini), with whome I'd successfully bluetoothed files prior to Windows reinstallation = same problem persisted as with my phone, which indicates to me that the problem lies with Windows.

A:Why do we need bluetooth drivers for basic devices

Bluetooth doesn't automatically come with every computer. Bluetooth on Notebooks usually is part of the Wi-Fi adapter, turn Wi-Fi off and Bluetooth will also be off [3 of my Notebooks have it]. Haven't seen Desktops yet that come with Bluetooth but USB adapters are not expensive, got one in 2 Desktops. Drivers for either scenario are required for the adapter and frequently for specific devices so they can be Paired to the computer. Some versions of Windows will have built-in drivers.

A lot Apple's Macintosh computers use Bluetooth. Some versions of Linux have built-in support for Bluetooth on those machines with the adapter.

I have a windows 7 laptop but it does not have Bluetooth. So I bought a Bluetooth adapter (dongle) from local computer shop (it has no markings) and it seemed to install OK. (However expecting to see Bluetooth in notification bar, but it does not show). My laptop can't see any other device. I have done the following to try and rectify:

Been to device manager and the adapter appears to be working.

Been to services and Bluetooth is set to automatic

Been to Bluetooth settings (in Hardware & Sound) and tried to tick "Allow Bluetooth devices to find this computer" but when you apply get error message- "An error has occurred while windows was saving your settings. The Bluetooth device might be unplugged. The following settings were not saved: Discoverability settings, Connection settings"

I have uninstalled the adapter and reinstalled.

I have checked latest driver updates.

Still can't see any devices. (Got my daughters mobile phone to make sure it could see my phone by Bluetooth and it could, so Bluetooth is switched on my phone).

Just don't know what else there is to do on my computer to be able to see other devices.

I have seen a few printers that have USB and Wifi connections, I have also seen a small point and shoot digital camera that transfered it's pictures via wifi instead of bluetooth. Is bluetooth being phased out? Does this mean bluetooth is dieing? I know that wifi has a higher data transfer rate so it's more convenient but I can't imaging a wifi mouse or a wifi earphone.

A:Some devices are usinf Wifi instead of bluetooth

Bluetooth isn't dying, but is becoming something more integrated. Some speculate that cars will use it instead of internal cabling (bad idea if you ask me).
This article
another article

But wifi is better for some applications, as it allows the device to get inside a network and communicate with any device inside that network (so it's why wifi is pretty prevalent in printers along the Ethernet interface), while bluetooth is usually used for a temporary very-short-range connection between two devices. So you get bluetooth operated smart locks, sensors and other stuff that would make no sense to put on Wifi.

Why not? They are just different data transfer protocols over radio waves.

I recently upgraded my Acer Aspire One AOD150 Netbook to Windows 7 (32Bit) Home Premium with a clean install, everything works fine except for Bluetooth.

I have installed latest drivers from the Acer site but to no avail. According to the Acer Hardware detection utility I have a Broadcomm Bluetooth card.

The Netbook OS was originally Win XP with a Logitech V470 Bluetooth mouse which worked perfectly, I could also discover and user phones and other bluetooth devices.

I have checked to make sure the Bluetooth services are started, and also checked to make sure that Power Saving on the mouse is not enabled (this caused loss of device problems with my new Win7 (64bit0 PC - so I disabled it on the Netbook as well)

It seems that no Bluetooth devices can be discovered, I have checked that the Bluetooth is switched on and tried discovering other mice, phones and computers but the system resolutely fails to see any Bluetooth devices at all!

Would be grateful for any advice,

Hello

I've had a problem with my bluetooth keyboard and mouse for quite some time now. The problem is that they disconnect and then won't reconnect. This usually happens after the computer has been inactive for about an hour or so, but it varies. Occasionally they have disconnected while I've been using them, but this is a rare occurence.

The problem comes when I try to use the mouse after it has been idle for a while. Usually clicking the left mouse button brings it out of sleep mode and the light comes on at the bottom, but in the occasions where it does not work nothing happens. The computer for some reason still considers it to be connected; I have a program called BluetoothView which shows the last time connected, and this is continuously updated even when I can no longer use the mouse.

I'm running Windows XP SP2. My bluetooth adapter, as well as the keyboard and mouse, are all manufactured by Belkin.

Any help greatly appreciated

Thanks in advance!

Tried to connect my sister's computer and then my phone.

I updated to Win 7 with a full/clean install so is there a driver that I should re-install or update?

Depending on make and model of some mobile phones, phone manufacturer may not have or will not update the driver for those types of phones for windows 7. They want you to buy a new phone...same thing happened when vista rolled out and a lot of printers wouldn't work with the OS.

I have a Lenovo ThinkPad Helix (not sure of the exact model number but it's an i7 with 8GB ram and 128 GB SSD). After I upgraded to 8.1, I was able to pair the laptop to my bluetooth speakers and my phone (Motorola Razr Maxx) but almost instantaneously after connecting both my speakers and phone would drop and say not connected.

Nothing I did would resolve the problem, and I have gone through more or less every thread on this board relating to bluetooth issues. I've tried reinstalling the drivers, I've set the bluetooth support services to start automatically but the only thing to get bluetooth working again was to roll back to Windows 8.

So my question is this:

I kind of miss some of the features of 8.1 and I'd like to get those back, but not at the cost of bluetooth functionality. Is there any way to get the bluetooth working in 8.1, or any way to get the features of 8.1 in 8?

Some extra information; I'm running Windows 8 64 bit Pro as of right now and bluetooth is working fine; I have a broadcom bluetooth radio that came preinstalled in my laptop, specific model number is BCM20702A0;While I was using 8.1 there were no issues in Device Manager regarding drivers, at least not with the exclamation marks nor any unidentified devices.

A:Bluetooth devices would not stay connected in 8.1

Okay, the problem seems to have automagically fixed itself. All I did was revert back to windows 8, like I said in the previous post, and after updating to 8.1 again the problem does not exist anymore. I have no explanation for what's different or why it worked but I'm not going to question it.

I do recall originally that I had a bit of software which was on the bottom right of the task bar and when I opened it, I took the option to connect. I cannot remember the softare.

Any ideas please?

The issue is; when I pair a device with my computer using Bluetooth I am no longer able to unpair, or even uninstall the device, as if i do, somehow windows will just automatically reinstall it even if it's not connected. This means that if i connect the device to something other than my computer, I can no longer re-pair it with my computer as it thinks that the device is still paired.

When I pair the device from the Bluetooth section of control panel, the device will disappear from the control panel Bluetooth menu, and the only way to see that the device is connected is by looking in device manager.
Here is an image I have found of what the Bluetooth section of the control panel should look like with paired devices:

Now here is what mine looks like even though I have a number of devices connected:
Here's what I've Tried
I have removed, and completely uninstalled all Bluetooth devices from the PC using device manager (even the hidden devices), and also uninstalled all Bluetooth applications from the control panel.
After doing the previous steps, I reconnect the Bluetooth dongle (ASUS BT-400) and install the driver I downloaded from the Asus website. As soon as the driver for the device install, all of the previously paired (since time began) devices will install and windows will think they air all paired (again I can see this though the device manager).

Hi together!

I bought a bluetooth dongle from Speedlink "VIAS Bluetooth USB Adapter".
It implements Bluetooth V2.1+EDR, but that should be backwards compatible.

It is working on Windows 7 and on Linux 3.7, but on Vista (i have SP2), the pc is unable to detect any devices.



First of all the cover of the dongle says that it is "certified for Vista". Windows actually recognizes it and installes the standard bluetooth drivers. The manual confirms that only Microsoft drivers are needed.

So the drivers are installing with no problems, but i can't detect any devices. (I tried my phone, the wiimote, all these things work on the other platforms)



I tried reinstalling the drivers and rebooting a lot of times,but it didn't helped.
I tried writing an e-mail to the manufacturer, but there was no response since the 28th July.

Under "services", the service "bluetooth support service" is running.

I found out that the dongle does not search for devices. I observed this on the Windows 7 pc. When the dongle searches for devices, the LED stays red (which is happening on Windows 7) but on Vista the LED is only flashing.

Has somebody an idea?
Thank you

Just got a pair of artic bluetooth headphones and was able to pair it to my laptop running win 7.  It shows up in devices under devices and printers but is not showing up in devices in WMP12.  All that shows up there is my dvd drive, my display,
and speakers.  When I click on the speaker icon and select the audio device in the drop down menu all that is available is the realtec audio or default audio device. The headphones are not listed. Clicking on the default audio device still doesn't
get the headphones to work.  The headphones work fine with my tablet though.  Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks.

I have a HP Pavilion HPE h8-1124 PC running Window 7 Home Premium 64-bit. I've used my bluetooth a couple of times and it worked just fine, but recently it just completely stopped pairring with any of my devices that I try to connect.

I have even try to update the bluetooth driver and it still not working. So I'm completely stomped at the moment. And now I have this message that pops up whenever I start up my PC.

Forgot to mention that it is still able to find the devices, but does not pair with any tho.

A:Built in Bluetooth isn't working. Won't pair with my Devices.

Have you tried a System Restore to an earlier time to see if it worked then? You said the BT worked previously. Not sure how far back you might have to go though since it seems like it was awhile ago that it worked.

I just got a BlueAnt Z9 bluetooth headset that I want to work with on Skype and such, but Vista will not install the proper driver for it. I also got a surround sound system (Samsung HT-Z310) w/ bluetooth that I wanted to use for audio also. However, Vista will not install the drivers for either component.

Both devices "pair" with the computer fine, but it will not go the next step and finish installing the drivers. They both will appear on device manager with an "!" next to them. I have tried running Windows Update, manually updating the driver, and a few other things, but to no avail. Does anyone have an idea of how to get these audio devices working? ANY HELP WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED!!

Ok, so I recently bought a new Bluetooth headset. I paired it with my computer, and got everything working fine. The next day, when I resume my computer from hibernation, I find that it's not immediately working. I check the Playback Devices in Sound, and it shows up as "Disconnected". I right click, and attempt to reconnect. Nothing happens. I go to my Bluetooth Devices and remove the device. I pair it again successfully. I go back to Playback Devices, and it still won't connect, so I restart my computer completely, and it still doesn't work. I try reinstalling the driver for the headset, and it reinstalled fine, but now it won't even show up at all in Playback Devices, despite it being paired fine, and showing up in my Bluetooth Devices. Any help would be appreciated as to fixing this issue.

Thanks in advance.

Though I don't think it matters, the headset is a Kinivo BTH220 Bluetooth Stereo Headphone, exact specifications can be found here: Amazon.com: Kinivo BTH220 Bluetooth Stereo Headphone - Supports Wireless Music Streaming and Hands-Free calling: Cell Phones & Accessories

Perhaps your BlueTooth system dont have a2dp protocol (stack), you need this for music transfer bluetooth to wireless speaker. Check your brand of BT chip, and download drivers for your chip. PS Ms Win7 64 do not have the a2dp protocol, you must find by other vendor.
