Q: Windows 10 - HP Mini 210-4120ea -- Bluetooth Drivers

Hey everyone, I was wondering if someone could help me out.I've installed Windows 10 (Not an upgrade) on my HP Mini, I've a couple of issues with drivers but the first one I want to tackle is my bluetooth. In windows 7 it is listed in device manager as: worked.Atheros 3011 Bluetooth 3.0 + HS Adapter However there doesn't seem to be any bluetooth device in my device manager in Windows 10. I tried installing the Windows 7 drivers as it's worked on other laptops with friends and family but no such luck in my case. ---------- I have noticed though that my Wifi card is also detected as a different Atheros model than it was previously in Windows 7 too.Windows 7 Device Manager:Atheros AR9285 802.11 b/g/n Wifi AdapterWindows 10 Device Manager:Qualcomm Atheros AR9485 802.11 b|g|n Wifi Adapter Wifi works just fine as it is, but I know some wifi cards will have bluetooth combined and so I've tried install the Windows 7 drivers also for my particular card from HP Support but hasn't made a difference.I've also been looking around the internet for drivers and can't seem to find any official support or downloads for these devices. Has anyone else had this issue and could share with me how to restore functionality to my bluetooth adapter? Many thanks in advance folks and for reading my post.Keith

Hi Guys,

I've been trying to get this device to work for hours, and no matter what I do, I keep getting a messege saying the device driver software was not succesfully installed.

Under Bluetooh Peripheral Device, it says no drivers found.

Has anyone successfully installed the Belkin's Mini-BT dongle, and if so, can someone give me a step by step, how-to on how to do so?

On my iPhone, under Bluetooth, it says that I'm connected to the PC, but on the PC, it says that the BT device needs trouble shooting, and it won't allow me to transfer any files to the iPhone.

Really, the primary reason I got the BT dongle was so that I could use the iPhone's 3G service as an internet connection when I'm away from home.

I'd appreciate any help.

A:Belkin Mini-Bluetooth Drivers - F8T016

Have you been using the system-included drivers, or drivers from an installation disc/download? I'm thinking they're not compatible. Are you on 7 64-bit or 32-bit?

EDIT: I see they work on Vista 32-bit and 64-bit, which means they'll work with both versions of 7. Vista drivers should work with 7.

So, my Rii Mini Keyboard with Trackpad (RT-MWK02) finally arrived from Newegg last night.
The unit came with a small USB bluetooth adapter.
I plugged the adapter in, but the keyboard in discoverable mode, typed in the password Windows gave me, and everything worked perfectly on the first try!
Then I decided I didn't like the USB port I plugged the bluetooth adapter into (it has a rather bright red LED, and I plugged it in to the front of the HTPC which was distracting, so I decided to move it to the back.
Removed the USB adapter, plugged it back in, bluetooth adapter is discovered by Windows again, but no input from the keyboard.
I try re-pairing it. Windows never discovers the new device.
I go to the list of devices, and remove it from the list, and try re-pairing it again. Again, windows does not discover the keyboard, even though the bluetooth adapter is still present (and functional) in windows.
Just in case it's a weird USB issue, I move the adapter back to the original port where it once worked, and still it does not pair with the HTPC.
In all of the cases it simply is not discovered by the Windows 8 machine when searching, like it was the first time.
To make sure there is nothing wrong with the keyboard, I try to pair it with my cellphone (Samsung Galaxy S3) and it works perfectly. (it's a little odd to see a mouse pointer on a cellphone screen, but I digress)
So again, I disconnect it, and try to pair it with Windows 8 again, to no avail.

A:Windows 8 HTPC Rii Mini Keyboard Bluetooth Issues

Why don't you try restoring your PC to the earlier state before plugging in your Rii. It might help wiping out the info already stored in the system and start fresh again.

You have a very nice smartphone. I also have an android phone (HTC One X) and sometimes I use it to control my HTPC. Download the FREE app on your phone and then download the server on your PC and you can control your HTPC smoothly via your home wifi network. You can even turn on your PC thru WOL (wake-on-lan) and turn it off also just using your smartphone. You might think about returning you Rii after trying the Unified Remote App.
My other HTPC controller is a logitech K-400 wireless keyboard with heat pad. It's always nice to have a full size keyboard with any PC. It also has a tiny USB dongle which didn't have the same problem like you have now even if I plug and unplug it to the front and back of the HTPC.

BTW, This isn't me on the video. I just grabbed it from youtube...hahaha. Cheers!

Hi @Bogoss75 Welcome to the HP Forums! I see that you are having some Bluetooth problems. What are you trying to do with your Bluetooth? A better understanding of your problem will help me find a resolution. Part of the problem could be the fact that there are no HP drivers for your model. There would be no HP drivers for what you are requesting as they are not HP devices but give the steps below a try. Step 1. Go to Device ManagerStep 2. Right click on "Bluetooth Peripheral Device" that you wantStep 3. Select "Update Driver Software..."Step 4. Choose "Browse my computer for driver software"Step 5. Choose "Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer"Step 6. Select "Ports (COM & LPT)"Step 7. Select "Microsoft" at "Manufacturer" listStep 8.

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

I've got a PC at work that is new running XP Pro SP3.

We are trying to set up a bluetooth connection to a blackberry 8330 using a D-Link USB BT Adapter. I know that the BB doesn't do well with 3rd party BT drivers and we should just use the native WinXP BT Drivers. The thing is that there isn't the Bluetooth Configuration icon in control panel like I have on other PC's.

Is there an place that I can download these generic windows BT drivers? or where are they on the system?

When the adapter is plugged in, it looks for drivers and when I tell it to check the HDD, it doesn't find anything.

A:Windows 7 cannot locate bluetooth drivers for device

Hello jkhr,  You can read the instructions that came with the Bluetooth device, there may be special requirements or software that needs to be installed. Also you can consult the device manufacturer's web site for software updates and information. Make sure the device you are trying to connect is compatible with Windows 7. Here some tips for headphones, headsets, or speakers:If your speakers, headphones or headset appears in Windows, but you can't hear them, set them as the default playback devices in Windows sound properties for speakers (and microphone).Unpair or disconnect other paired devices if more than one Bluetooth device is connected.Any other questions please let me know.

I have tried the oft-repeated recommendations of disabling/re-enabling; uninstalling/scan for hardware changes & applying drivers; shutting down (unplug) for several minutes and restarting system. Currently, I am only applying the NIC and USB drivers and am still seeing this problem, although I have also applied all drivers with no difference. A couple of questions:Has anyone else seen this and fixed it?Could the USB drivers be the issue? I am using the USB drivers otherwise I cannot use my keyboard/mouse.Any other suggestions?

Such a title will get me in trouble and possible few viewers but I couldn't figure out how to properly address my problem--sorry.
Here goes. I bought a bluetooth dongle. Had problems installing its drivers since Windows, Calling it ''Bluetooth radio" couldn't find the right drivers. I uninstalled them and then via something called "IN3BTH02WW6.exe" It seemed to install the correct drivers. More precisely what the above installed is: CSR Bluecore device, CSR Bluetooth radio, Bluetooth SPP Driver COM 5, and Bluetooth SPP Driver COM 6.
Reboot all seems OK.
Now I go to my Control Panel and I see: 1-Bluetooth Devices, 2-Bluetooth Settings, and 3-Bluetooth Local COM.
If I click on either of the first 2 nothing happens--no new window, no anything as if I clicked on an empty space. Shouldn't they do something? Assuming so then something is wrong somewhere--which may be this installation of drivers has nothing to do with my dongle and hence the cause of the other problems listed below..
I'll get to the COM one later.
My aim is to use my headset (the one I use with my cell phone) with my PC.
So I went to CTRL Panel--> Devices and Printers --> Add new Device and nothing happens it just searches and searches and searches--and yes I did let my headset try to pair during this process.
Now to 3-Bluetooth Local COM. If I click on it a window pops up saying it wants to install drivers. Why would it want to do so since the drivers are already installed? Do I need even more... Read more

For pairing your bluetooth Bose speaker to your computer. I have included the link 'SoundLink® Wireless Mobile speaker update' to download the actual software, and updates available.

I just acquired a Belkin mini to use with my headphones.

Step 1 is to install the BT adapter. on the support website, it says that because I use Windows 8, I shouldn't have anything to install.

But things don't happen like they're supposed to. it seems that when I plug the USB adapter, something happens but then nothing else. So I install anyway the setup program on the CD. again when installation is over, nothing happens, no desktop icon, no special tray icon.
At this point I should point out that my ACER predator desktop PC has an inbuilt Bluetooth device... but for some reason it too can't seem to connecto to headphones, hence the purchase of the belkin adapter. So in my tray, there already was a bluetooth icon.

So what I did, was check the device manager to see if it recognized hardware. And apparently there is a problem, but this is where my skills end and where I hope to get some help from you guys.

I had to update my bluetooth drivers (Intel) before I could finally get sound to come out of my new UE Mini Boom speakers.

But I still have a problem. If I am watching a Youtube video in a web browser (doesn't seem to matter which) and then switch to a video in VLC or Win Media Player, the sound from the new source doesn't play on the speakers. I have to power the speaker off and then back on and then it will pick up the new audio.

When I had a USB speaker the source-audio switched without any problem. Are there any settings that I can update, or should I just accept that a bluetooth speaker was a terrible idea for Win7?

A:Bluetooth speakers (UE Mini Boom) don't switch to new audio source

Youtube uses the Adobe Flash Player. VLC/WMP or whatever media player does not and thus different audio source. One thing to check, that may or may not make a difference, is if you have Stereo Mix set as the default recording device. This can affect sound playback. Stereo Mix is found in the Control Panel/Hardware and Sound and finally the Sound panel, Recording section.

Hello computer comrades!

Once again I have ran into a problem that makes me want to bang my head against the wall over and over. My friend just bought an HP Mini off of someone he knew, and all of the network drivers are missing. My initial solution was to go to, input the model # and/or serial # and download the drivers straight from there. No problem right? Well, I cannot find the model # or serial # of this tiny notebook anywhere! I called HP and they told me that there should be a sticker on the back with both listed there, however, they are not.

I went to to just see if I can guess which model this is, but there are hundreds!

Is there any way I can find out the model # of this HP Mini without this sticker that should be on the bottom?

I bought an HP Mini 110-3015dx with Windows 7 starter pre-installed.  I have since swapped out the HD and loaded XP Pro onto the mini (by slipstreaming the SATA drivers -- what a pain).  Anyway -- I started looking for the drivers for the hardware, and the driver .exe that HP lists for the machine for the WLAN won't work.  I run the executable, restart, and nothing -- no new network adapter shows up.  I've tried mapping the driver directly to the extracted folder that's created in c:\SWSETUP, but there are no configuration files (only cabs and executables), so I cannot manually add the driver. Does anyone know the chipset and have a link to the drivers so I can manually map them to the unrecognized devices?  Or is there some other fix?  As much as I like Windows 7, I need XP on this machine. thanks,WLH

it does this same thing when you upgard to the full windows 7 - even though that is what HP recommends you do. Then HP will tell you to spend $60 for them to fix the problem - becasue this computer is not compatable with anything other than the windows 7 starter - its just a way for HP to make more money once you buy the product.

Hello, I have a problem with an HP Mini 110 wich i have just reformarted with windows 7, the problems with the drivers where actually manifestating before, I thought that with the formating and the windows 7 instalation would be solved.

Due to hideous misfortune I had to do a clean install of my personal copy of Windows Vista and remove the stock Windows XP from my netbook.

Many drivers were added my Microsoft during Vista installation but I have no adapter drivers for either wireless or ethernet controllers. Under device manager I have no category for Network Adapters but instead those two controllers are listed under "Other Devices".

Under HP downloads I found the driver for Qualcomm Mobile Broadband Drivers - Gobi1000 when I went through the process of stating my product ID and OS (Windows Vista Home Premium 32bit). I downloaded it onto my pc, saved it to the flash drive I had to use earlier as a bootable drive to install Vista (knew the lack of native cd/dvd drive would eventually haunt me) and then moved the flash drive to the netbook to run install.

After running the setup a blank 'ms-dos' window popped up, stayed blank and then disappeared. There was no confirmation of success of failure in regards to installation of the driver. But under Device Manager they are still listed under other devices and I am unable to do anything with them.

I downloaded, transported and ran the setups for HP help and support as well as the Wireless Assistant. Both run fine on the Mini. The wireless assistant simply states that Windows has no controllers assigned to find connections to maintain.

I was curious as to whether or not there was something I was missing, the driver was the inco... Read more

Good day..

I have posted something like this up already, but I can't seem to find a solution.

i have a Canyon Bluetooth device.


And this drivers doesn't work with Window 7..

On device manager, it saids it's present, but when i try to send and do things, it's like as if it's NOT there..

i tried using bluesoliels and it worked.. But then the side effect was that there was a BSOD... and if it's the later versions you have to pay..

So I'm just looking for something that could work with the BT device.. to I can connect my phone and do presentations on it.. Instead of having to plug in the cable...

If someone can help, that would be GREAT!


A:BlueTooth drivers

Besides the original BT installation discs, the only decent available solutions nowadays are either the Windows BT stack -- which has very few compatible devices -- or the BlueSoleil suite.

While I've never experienced any BSOD in BlueSoleil -- and I have way over a dozen random BT-enabled devices which I eventually connect to my 64-bit machine, ranging from mouses, keyboards, phones, headsets, home stereo, my car' sound head unit... --, I'm pretty happy with this piece of software.

Anyway, if you aren't willing to spend money on software, I would at least suggest you to try to search Canyon's website for driver updates. Or to search for a new dongle, Win7 compatible out of the box -- which may be cheaper than BlueSoleil.

Here's a list found I've found on MS website:

I would like to tell everything that has happened to my HP Pavilion G6-2301AX Laptop (windows 8) in the hope that I will get a more accurate solution for my problem.

3 months ago I had an overheating issue and since my laptop was in warranty, the HP engineer came and solved that issue but my laptop wasnt starting. So he told me to purchase an HP Recovery Media from HP and I did so. It worked fine. Then during startup my laptop started showing a message to replace the battery. This happened 3 weeks ago. So I replaced my battery with a new one and an original one. A week after this, my laptop started showing the same message that is my batteries capacity has been reduced and that I should replace it but I have not replaced it the second time. And in between the 3 weeks (i.e. since I replaced with a new battery), I have done system recovery twice and day before yesterday I reset to factory settings. But all 3 times, after a span of 2-3 days my bluetooth driver stops working. Like d 1st time I did system recovery, for 2-3 days everything works fine and then bluetooth is disabled and no way to enable it. Same with the 2nd time. And the same thing when I did factory reset. Since the last week, my laptop restarts in between. It is rare but still it does happen.

What is the cause for this? why is this happening even after system recovery and factory reset? and what is the solution.? How can I get my laptop working in the best condition again?

I've had 8 for a couple weeks now and suddenly running into weird USB and Bluetooth issues.

First, my Bluetooth will not let me uninstall a mouse and when I search for devices it does not find any devices. Used to pick up cell phone. Not anymore.

Second, I plugged in a USB mouse and it installed and worked. Unplugged it and plugged back in, got a message that the device was not recognized. Tried all kinds of things to get it recognized. The usual, Device Manager, drivers, etc.
No USB hot plugging in 8 without screwing things up? Even a mouse?

I figured one of our fellow forum members would have jumped in to suggest some things by now so let me be the first.

Bluetooth not recognized - Go into device manage and select "show hidden devices" and delete any inactive bluetooth profiles (greyed out with code 45 I believe). Reboot and plug your bluetooth back in and see what happens.

Let's see if this works for starters. Good luck.

I did a windows 7 clean install on my HP Mini 210 4051 nr as part of creating a dual boot with Ubuntu. In Linux the internet works fine, but in Windows 7 it does not. In the device manager I see yellow flags over the ethernet and network controllers. Code 28 (My model does have an ethernet port).

Because the machine cannot connect, I downloaded all the related drivers (everything from the network tab) from the HP website for my model with another computer and then put them all in a folder on the Mini's desktop via USB. When I try to install the drivers through the device manager, and direct it to that folder, it says it finds nothing usable.

A:Uninstalling Bluetooth Drivers

Those Bluetooth peripheral devices are things that have been detected by your Bluetooth adapter, for example mobile phones, tablets, Bluetooth headsets, Bluetooth mice.

For these devices to disappear from the device manager you can turn off Bluetooth by disabling the adapter.

For these devices to be installed properly you may need to be paired with these devices first.

Can you guys help me make the windows bluetooth drivers work again? It's really annoying and complicated to use the toshiba file transfer anyways because even if your phone is paired to you pc, you still have to put it in discovery mode and have to let the program search for the phone instead of picking it off of a list.

it came with Intel N-2230 wireless/bluetooth chip, but it was a pain in the ass and had lots of connection problems
so I replaced the with a Atheros AR5B97 wireless/bluetooth chip from my older laptop

the problem I have now is that the bluetooth isn't detected/working on my HP
can anyone spare some tips to solve this?

I've already tried all the possible drivers from ATHEROS drivers for Microsoft Windows (Atheros?????)
and it's still not working
I've also tried atheros bluetooth manager driver from acer (the brand of my old laptop)
but it didn't support win8, so it wouldn't install
I've also tried atheros bluetooth driver from sony, but it mad absolutely no difference

I've concluded that I DO infact have the driver, I just can't seem to enable it
when I put the atheros chip back in acer, it also doesn't show bluetooth in device manager, but when i press the wireless hotkey (fn+F3), on the acer, and switch bluetooth to on thru the utility, bluetooth popped up in device manager
so i guess the question now is how do I enable the bluetooth on my HP?

A:Atheros AR5B97 Bluetooth drivers (W8.1)

Hi all,

My Apple Wireless Keyboard recently died, and while I'm waiting for Apple to send me a new one (for free, happily enough), I'm using a Compaq Internet Keyboard (over USB) which actually works quite well on my OS X Leopard install (please see my system info for more information).

However, my Vista install is not being so kind, and even though it worked at first with the regualar HID keyboard drivers, Vista continued to insist that it needed to try to install drivers. I allowed it to do so, and the keyboard stopped working - along with my Mighty Mouse, which also uses the HID-compliant mouse drivers.

Now, I can't find any of the HID drivers anywhere, even when selecting from a list of all drivers (they used to appear under Mircosoft or Microsoft Corporation), and my mouse is only reading as a generic 'Bluetooth Peripheral Device.' Pointing the drivers install to C:\Windows\ is also useless, as it finds the drivers (usually) but claims they cannot be installed. It gives me one of these two errors:

"The system cannot find the file specified.", or:
"A file cannot be created where a file already exists."

This is driving me nuts, as it's rendered my Vista partition almost useless. Any help at all is GREATELY appreciated.

Hi Bookworm99 -

Welcome back to TSF.

Have you tried the sfc utility?

START | type cmd.exe | right-click on it up top | Run as admin

sfc /scannow

Also - there should be (but may not be) copies in the file repository folders:


and in:


Good Luck. . .

I'm using Windows 7 Professional 64 bit. My computer is a Sony Vaio S series laptop.

After I used the registry cleaner on Glary Utilities (obviously in hindsight after doing some quick research I wish I hadn't!) I started getting a 'BTTray error'.

The advice I found to deal with this was to uninstall, then reinstall, the Bluetooth drivers.

Unfortunately when I tried to install them the process is halted with the message 'Please plug in or turn on your Bluetooth device.'

(just to add Bluetooth is turned on on the laptop)

Any advice on how to successfully download the drivers would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance for any thoughts / help...

A:Unable todownload Bluetooth drivers...

If it lets you just tell it to finish the installation and then restart your computer. I was able to do that on my old laptop (a Toshiba) and the bluetooth worked fine after.

Just tried connecting via Bluetooth to an LG sound bar .... windows can find the drivers
as an alternative the I tried to connect to a Roberts Radio .... you guessed it, cant find the drivers.
Can some one explain to me why even a cheap mobile phone can connect to any Bluetooth speaker I come across and windows, even though it identifies it as external speaker, can't without loading drivers.

it's very frustrating.

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 bought a USB Bluetooth v2.0 device about 1yr ago and recently after moving a few mnths ago, found the USB device, but sadly the original CD with the drivers//softwre is missing and i cant seem to find any generic ones out there. The device has no markings or writing to tell me anything more then the fact its Bluetooth v2.0.

Windows detects the device but cant find any drivers.

Anyone have any ideas or possible links to drivers that may work?

Sorry, I don't really know where to integrate this question.Basically I've upgraded my old laptop to Windows 10, but I cannot connect any bluetooth device. If I remember well, the bluetooth should also appear in the Device Manager, but there's only the wifi card and the network card there. I've tried to find network card drivers for W10, but they are nowhere to be found.I apreciate any link to a page where I can download W10 drivers for this laptop.Thank you.
