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 http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I have a Insignia bluetooth wireless headphones that I want to use to listen to my Viso VO37L flat screen TV. So I put a Soundblaster Audigy soundcard in my spare computer and connected the TV headphone jack to the input line of the soundcard. I can now have the TV audio playing through the computers speakers. The problem is that no matter what I try I can't get the signal to the headphones. I have WIDCOMM bluetooth 5.1.0.3900 software installed on the computer and it works fine ,I can hear all Window XP sounds as well as the media player and other software audio. I tried using a few recording software programs thinking I could use the monitoring feature to hear the in-line input, but even though I could record the input and hear the replay I couldn't hear the monitor. This whole Idea seemed so simply but not I am thinking that "you can't get there from here". If anyone knows what I am missing I would appreciate the help. Thanks.

Can someone please help me. I have a linksys wireless router and a network set up, but I just recently moved and when I hooked the wireless router up to the new modem I am having problems. When trying to connect to the network at first it gets stuck trying to acquire a network address, so I went into the IP address set-up for the wireless and used the default IP 192.168.1.1 - when using this IP address I connect to the wireless network and have "full connectivity" however when I open internet explorer it tells me that I have not connection to the internet. When given the chose I ran a diagnostics on the connection and it is saying that there is an invalid IP address along with multiple other things I cannot decode. I have put the diagnostic run below:

Answer:Wireless Connenction - No Internet Page

Reset the router to factory defaults by holding the reset button down for 15 seconds with power on.
Turn off everything, the modem, router, computer.
Connect the modem to the router's WAN/Internet port.
Connect the computer to one of the router's LAN/Network ports.
Turn on the modem, wait for a steady connect light.
Turn on the router, wait for two minutes.
Boot the computer.

This should get you connected with a wired connection. You can then configure the wireless to your preferences.

Hi there,
I am using two different bluetooth headsets to connect to my computer. They
pair and connect just fine and even work with Skype. The problem is Vista
(business) disconnects the headset about every 30-60 seconds. Does anyone
have any ideas of how to keep the connection stable?
thanks!

Answer:Bluetooth Headphone disconnects

Are you using vendor's bluetooth drivers? If so, remove it, reboot and let your system install the Microsoft bluetooth stack. You may have to uninstall your hardware manually too (from device manager)

I can't use my bluetooth headphone and wired earpiece simultaneously. whenever I connect my bluetooth headphone to my laptop, the wired earpiece stops working.I'm having Dell XPS L501X with Realtek High Definition Audio.Is there any way to make them work simultaneously?

Answer:Can't use bluetooth headphone with earpiece!!

I don't think there is because usually when you plug in a headset or turn on a bluetooth headset it disables the speakers, so I suspect that bluetooth essentially does the same to your wired headset - probably nothing that can be done about it unless you happen to find a setting in the realtek control panel that disables the 'feature'."I've always been mad, I know I've been mad, like the most of us..."

I have a Dell Latitude E6410 that finds and apparently "connects" to my Rocketfish RF-MAB2 bluetooth headphones. However, the headphones never show up as a device in the sound/volume settings, so the computer plays sound from the speakers rather than the headphones. Any help will be much appreciated.

Hi Guys,

I am trying to buy a new "sports headphone" to be used at the gym. Unfortunately, where I am, I only either have bluetooth 2.0 + NFC or Bluetooth 4.0 (only 1 or 2 options) without NFC.

I am really keen on NFC, as I have a S4 and really keen to try NFC, would really appreciate any feedback on this? Is BT2.0 with NFC a better option in terms of easy of use or a simple BT3.0 or BT4.0 without NFC be a safer bet?

I am not too sure how stable the NFC technology now is, so thats my only concern.

Would appreciate some feedback on this.

Thanks
 

Answer:NFC or bluetooth sports headphone?

Since NFC only works up to a few inches, it must be used just for the setup. The Bluetooth would then be used as the link between the headphones and phone.

I own a macbook pro and runs windows 7 by bootcamp. The headphone is JBL e40bt.
I tried to use my bluetooth headphone it had always failed and it said there was no driver for "bluetooth peripheral device."
I then downloaded the ASUS driver thing from here: Can't find drivers for bluetooth headset - Windows 7 Help Forums
And the problem was solved.

But now when I connect my headphone, it is only good immediately after I connect it. As long as I play something continuously the headphone won't switch off by itself and nothing's wrong. But if there's no audio input from the computer to the headphone for like a minute and then I start playing music, the audio is skipped. I have to reconnect the device for it to return normal.

Please help me. It is quite annoying. It's okay if I am playing games and stuff but I when I'm playing music I can't let it stop.

Hi, I am having problems getting a Bluetooth headset to operate. Having connected and paired (I believe), the device shows in Devices and Printers. In Device Manager, there are three listings for it (Aukey model EP-B4). Each listing says there are no drivers installed. Have tried updating each and all but after an age for Windows searching for drivers I had to use Ctrl-Alt-Del to close it.
I have contacted the manufacturer many times but so far no results - they repeatedly requested from where I bought it and item number.
I am using Win7 SP1 with all updates current.
 
The headset works well with my mobile phone and tablet (Android 5.1).
 
Any help much apprecitated.

The sound quality on paired headphones is terrible. There is a background, high pitched whine being transmitted that makes it unbearable to listen.
A wired pair of headphone works fine. The headphones work fine when paired with my Note 4 & Sony TV. A second pair of bluetooth headphones exhibits exactly the same problem, so it is 100% definitely the laptop that is the problem.
Does anybody know how the fix this please?

I didn't know where to put this, or what kind of problem this is.
I have a pair of Bluetooth headphones and an ASUS bluetooth USB adapter.
When I turn on the Bluetooth headset, I have to manually go into the Sound settings and change the "Default" to the Asus Adapter.
Though ZId love to know if there is a fix to this, it's easy enough to live with. The thing I cant stand though, is when I do switch any default device in the Sound settings, I also have to close all programs that were open when making the switch. Otherwise, the programs (like iTunes and Media Player Classic) will contiue coming out of the computer speakers, or whatever the previous default was. Ive only had the ASUS Bluetooth adapter, and havent been able to try another adapter, but I have used different bluetooth Headsets/Headphones, and they all react the same. The program also exhibited on Windows 7, so I doubt its OS specific.
Is there any way to fix this, because this is absolutely annoying.

Hi Satellite users,

I recently had a problem getting my Toshiba Satellite P50t-B running Windows 10 to detect (and hence connect) to my Sony MDR-XB50BS Bluetooth Headphones. The symptom of the problem was that the "MDR-XB50BS" device didn't appear in the list of available devices on the Windows Activity Centre "Connect" screen, nor in the Windows Settings -> Devices -> Bluetooth and other devices -> Add a device screen. Since the device never appeared, I couldn't connect to it.

The solution to the problem turned out to be upgrading my Toshiba Satellite BIOS from version 1.10 to BIOS version 1:50 available on the Drivers & Updates tab of the Toshiba Satellite Support site. The release notes mention a Bluetooth issue being corrected in version 1.40 and while I can't say for certain that this is the same issue I encountered, updating the BIOS was the last thing that I tried before the problem went away, and it's reasonable to expect that a relatively new technology like Bluetooth might have had early implementation bugs.

The other point to note is that if you've already paired the headphones with another device, like I had with my iPhone, then you have to hold the power button down for 7 seconds at power on in order to enter Bluetooth pairing mode first time you try to connect it to the Satellite.

I hope this helps someone someday!

Cheers,
Graham

If you connect any Bluetooth Headset or Devices using Audio + Hands-Free Profile with Windows 10 build 10049 Bluetooth Stack, it uses only Audio and doesn't allow Hands-Free use.
I have tested 2 different devices, Windows registers both profiles, but never allows Hands-Free, so it isn't possible to use cortana, teamspeak or any Voip-Application by now.
With different Bluetooth Stacks, I tested Toshiba's, it works, but other issues occur.
Previously used devices may not connect at all, because they seem to be already registered to Toshibas Stack, but not working at all. Any suggestions or ideas?

X220 tablet (about 2.5 yrs old, out of warranty) was working completely fine last night; this morning, no sound is coming from the laptop, either through speakers or through headphones (audio jack).  I am, however, able to get sound through a bluetooth-connected speaker. I had hoped this was a software issue.  Tried uninstalling/installing all sound devices, updating BIOS, updating drivers, system restore to previous date, rebooting a million times, etc.  No joy. When I run the sound troubleshooter, it says that no speaker, headset, or headphone appears to be plugged in.  The sound icon has a little red circle/white X next to it.  When I try to plug in headphones, nothing happens -- does not seem to detect the event.  When I press the mute and volume buttons on the tablet, no response. Also, under Device Manager -> Sound, video and game controllers, it lists only "Bluetooth Hands-free Audio" and "Intel Display Audio".  I don't think either of these is the normal X220 audio driver, is it?  What else should be there?  I downloaded the Conexant Audio Software from Lenovo's site (this is what came up when I searched for audio drivers for the X220 tablet), and tried to install it, but halfway through, it said the install failed because it couldn't locate the device for the driver. This sounds like it's a hardware problem -- any way to verify?  Also, which piece of hardware exactly?  Is it the sound card ...

Answer:X220 tablet - sound suddenly stopped working from speakers and headphone (but not bluetooth)

If it doesn't appear in the device manager, it sounds to me like the sound chip (codec) or some support chip has died. I'm not sure how exact you want the answer to be. I think on that model, the codec is a Conexant 20672. If I am correct, the normal fix is to replace the motherboard. Many x220 machines are still under warranty. If yours is, now would be a good time to use it. You can check here:http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/product-service/warranty-status/default.page?

I've done everything but stand on my head and I cannot get the P50 and the Sony to see each other to pair. I use the headset everday at the gym with an iPod Nano with no problem. With the P50 I've tried "add a bluetooth device' and 'show bluetooth devices'. In neither instance does the Sony appear. Suggestion? Mark

My keyboard won't stay connected to the Bluetooth. Windows disabled the Bluetooth and gave this messge: "Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43)." What is this and how do I fix it? I can't get my Logitech K810 keybaord to stay connected. It pairs, and works for awhile, then disconnests, even though it says it is connected. Driver update says the drivers in place are the right ones. I've also tried Bluetooth dongles to connect with, but I get the same problem -- connects for a while and then disconnects.

Good afternoon,
A couple of weeks ago I asked if wireless headphones were worth having. But our tv does not support this sort of thing. So I went into Maplin’s and spoke to a bloke there and he said he wasn’t sure but they had a unit which on one side has a scart socket and vision and audio sockets on the other.
So what I thought of doing was to get one of these units – there are two, one in and one out – and then get a small(ish) length of cable which would have the two audio sockets at one end and then merge into one at the other, and I could just connect my ‘ordinary’ headphones into this socket. If there was a volume controller in there somewhere so much the better. The bloke at Maplin’s could only get to this by having a male/female connector on the end of the two-into-one because it had a male end connector. I asked him if it would work, but he didn’t know and didn’t suggest a ‘try-and-return’ policy, so I left it.
So my question is this: does anyone a) know if such an arrangement would even work and b) apart from Maplin’s is there anywhere else anyone could suggest I go to try and get these – preferably one combined unit! – with a guarantee they would work?
Many thanks in anticipation, and a very Happy New Year to everyone.

Answer:An alternative to wireless headphone?

Lately I have discovered that the surround sound system I am using late at night can upset the neighbors

Also it would just be handy if I could own a wireless headphone set (possibly with a mic), I wondered if it were possible for a headset which plugged into the speaker slot and use the mic as an 360 mic or would the mic on the headset not work? may be confusing some people here...

Anyways I am more concerned about which headphones to buy, Im not too bothered about a mic unless it works with the xbox 360, I would prefer headphones with surround sound well alike surround sound (they say the headphones have surround sound but I cant imagine it being to good compared to speaker surround sound).

http://www.ebuyer.com/UK/product/116420

the link above is a "UK exclusive" pair which are made by Philips, they look and after reading about them well amazing, and meet my requirements. Sennheiser I have read are a good brand, if some suggestions of good WIRELESS headphones were to be posted in I would appreciate it so much.
My budget is a maximum of 120, don't want to spend too much, 70 - 100 would be a fairly good price range for me. Thats around a max budget of $260/270 and a good range of $160 - $220

Thanks again!,

So, just this morning I found a pair of Sylvania wireless headphones at Half Price Books. I unplugged my old speakers and replaced them with the new one, put batteries in everything, but when I tried to get it to connect to my computer sound, the only things it would connect to were some radio stations and static. So, for my first question, does anyone know what I should do for those?

Anyway, after I decided that they weren't going to work, I decided to switch back to my old speaker and earbud combo. So I plugged the speakers into the computer and the power strip. I tested out the sound with a the Nyan Cat video on Youtube (because I always use that one for trying out headphones), and I could hear like I usually do, but now there's a very loud buzzing sound in both of my headphones, and there was only very light static before. Was I supposed to do anything different when connecting them? They're Inland speakers.

I also had Realtek Audio manager pop up when I connected them, and I don't really know what I should do with that.

Help?

- Windows 7 Ultimate, x64
- Bluetooth 2.0 USB Dongle

What I'm trying to achive:
I want to play music from my desktop PC using my wireless headphone through the USB bluetooth dongle.

Problems:
- Even after my wireless headset is already listed in control panel, it seems that its still not completely paired.

The bluetooth headphone/headset in "Sound" properties is still blank and nothing happened if the "Connect" option (by its popup menu) is clicked.

- In the Wireless headphone menu, I still can't click "Listen to music". Nothing is happened.

Here is my wireless headphone properties:



What should I do to make my wireless headphone completely paired with my desktop PC and fully working?

Welcome in lenovo community
 
Method A:
1.  Go to the Control Panel by right click the bottom left corner in "Desktop" mode.
2.  Search for "Realtek HD Audio Manager".
3.  Set the headphone as communication device (see image below).
 
 
 
Also please let me know if you can hear also the sound from the headphone itself

Did you downgrade to XP or upgrade to Vista? Mute can get stuck if an OS has been changed.

Go into the Windows Volume Control, then click MUTE. Click MUTE again to unmute.

Hello,
 
I just purchased a new notebook, and I have a bit of a problem. When I plug headphones into the side headphone jack, the sound quality is downright terrible. Very shortly I noticed that it didn't sound as good/decent as my older notebook.
 
The speakers seem to sound fine, well you know - as good as laptops can sound. 
 
Right now I have two notebooks side by side: 
a friends Samsung Series 3 (NP300E5C), with Windows 8 (upgraded from W7) / Microsoft High Definition audio
my Toshiba L50 Windows 8 / Realteck High Definition
 
I dont have my older notebook anymore, but I do remember it sounding better. Comparing this Toshiba to the Samsung (both sitting on the desk side-by-side), the Toshiba sounds a little better through the speakers, but there is no comparison with the headphone - The Samsung is pretty decent while the Toshiba makes me cry. 
 
Now granted, I'm not expecting a symphony, but if I cant solve this I'm going to have to sell the Toshiba.
 
I've tried uninstalling Realtek, but I couldn't get the sound to work.
Re-installing Realtek solved nothing
 
One thing I noticed, there is no 'headphone' icon in the device manager (Control Panel > Hardware & Sound > Sound / or simply right click the audio icon in the taskbar). Are the headphones not high definition or something?

I have Lenovo 3000 Y410 laptop having Windows 7 Home Premium installed on it. Realtek HD Audio latest driver is installed. But from the last 3 days, when I connect headphone through laptop, following things happen : -
1) Headphone connected popup doesn't show up.
2) Mic of Headphone connected pop shows up.



3) When I play video, sound coming from both headphone & laptop speakers.
4) When I mute sound by muting sound icon in taskbar, sound then comes only from headphone.





What I have tried?
1) Installed new Realtek HD Audio Manager.
2) Installed OS again.
3) Tried to change settings in Realtek Hd Audio Manager. But Nothing changes.

When I input headphone & mic jacks into laptop, & then check Realtek HD Audio Manager. The following image shows this : -


The green in realtek hd audio manager is for headphone & red is for mic. In the image, it is shown that headphone not connected & mic connected. But even headphone not connected shows up, sound coming form headphone.

I want to get sound from only headphone when headphone is connected. Is this a hardware problem ?

Please help....

Answer:Sound coming from both headphone & speaker but headphone is not detect

My Realtek HD Audio Manager has more options than yours.

Also, I notice you only have the microphone in the Recording Section of the Sound Panel. RIGHT click in an empty space in that Panel and then LEFT click Show Disabled and Disconnected devices. The Stereo Mix should be shown and you can enable that and make it the default Recording device.

Where did you get the RealTek driver that you installed? If you are not using the Lenovo supplied sound driver, get that and install it as a first step. I have a Lenovo Laptop and it has Stereo Mix and other functions. I haven't looked at the RealTek HD manager so I'm not sure what all it shows.

I haven't used one that had the port as a combined unit but I would assume you would need a headphone set with mic that has combined wiring, such as sets used for cell phones and such. You can also purchase an adapter that will split the port into 2 ports for mic and headphones.

Hello Eight Forums.

My trouble is the audio output through headphones - background is louder than foreground (especially in music - I often cannot hear the vocals at all; movies however are mostly fine, for reasons unknown to me; but generally, the sound is always different in some way).

I only have one pair of headphones to test it with. However these always worked fine with previous machines, and still do work fine with my iPhone 4. Although they are surely not the case, I cannot with confidence say that if it were a loudspeaker instead things wouldn't have been different.

So this is either a software or a hardware issue.

Software

My computer (details at the bottom) came with a SoundBlaster X-Fi MB3 equalizer program and RealTek High Def Audio drivers. I've uninstalled SoundBlaster hoping it would fix the issue (I didn't need an extra program like that anyway) but alas to no avail. Updating the RealTek drivers did no good still.

The only thing I haven't touched is the ghostly NVIDIA Virtual Audio Device (can it be the source of my trouble?) - I only first noticed it now when copy/pasting the Belarc data. I'll try and find out about it in the meanwhile.

Hardware

I wonder if it perhaps has something to do with my audio jack (laptop's brand new, but you can never know). I have what appears to be mic, headphone, S/PDIF and line in jacks... Is there a way to use the microphone or the line-in to test the headphones? To see if the headphone out is broken.

Any help appreci... Read more

Answer:Messed up headphone audio; want to check headphone jack

First, the "My System Specs" is where you fill in what you have.

Does the internal speakers on the laptop work? Is the audio OK on the internal speakers?

The SoundBlaster program(s) is a software enhancement to the basic audio chip (ReaklTek). Many PC's now come with some type of enhancement such as the SoundBlaster or in the case of HP PC's its "Beats Audio".

Hey everybody,

I bought the headsets. They've got a microphone as well.

Now I've got three ports: pink, green and this colorless one.

My regular speakers go in the colorless port, while the headphone microphone goes into the pink one and the headset speakers.

The thing is speakers on the headsets, as well as my regular speakers worked, but the microphone on the headsets didn't, so I tried to fix the problem, and eventually did, that is the microphone works, but the speakers on the headsets don't !

However, by inserting the headphone's speakers into the colorless port (where my regular speakers are put), in that case the headphones work, but why don't they work when I pluck them in the green port? Previously, when the microphone didn't work, the headphone's speakers worked, but after I 'fixed' the microphone problem, the headphone's speakers stopped working.

Please help me, as this is of great importance, and I've been trying to fix this problem for several hours.
 

Answer:Headphone mic didn't work - now it does, but headphone speakers don't

That colorless port might be for input devices, that does not include headphones. I had the same problem with my audigy 2 zs, had to plug my headset into a speaker port, its really the only way to get them to work, unless you have front panel ports for headphones.

Hello everyone, from Snowy Michigan.
My HP Pavilion p7-1446s Desktop came installed with Integrated Bluetooth 4.0 and Wireless LAN 802.11 a/b/g/n.
I already have an N Router.
Anyone want to offer suggestions on how you might use these features? if you had them .
I had been looking at Streaming Players for my TV, like Roku, Netgear or Western Digital...and then I found out about gadgets that stream a Wi-Fi from my PC to the TV, like McTivia or Warpia.
My PC is in the basement and the TV around 15 ft. away.
All thoughts are appreciated.

Would I be right in thinking that you can create a wireless network for both sharing files and browsing the internet simply by buying a USB Bluetooth adapter for each computer? If so why is there a need to buy expensive routers, cables, network cards etc? ..I'm sure there's a catch somewhere, could someone please explain.

Answer:Wireless Networking Using Bluetooth!

i think you will find blue tooth only has a limited operation area and a very limited data transfer rate compared to wifi so whilst it may be ideal for small transfer eg pda or smart phone to pc or visa its probably not a great tool for large amounts of data transfer pc to pc

No
wireless card is to "network" your computer and bluetooth is to connect "devices" wireless to your computer. (a simple explanation)

you will need something like this if your computer does not have bluetooth built in.

Can't seem to detect any wireless networks and no wireless adapter is listed in Network Connections.

HP dv6152eu with XP Media Center

When I switch on the wireless switch, The Bluetooth LAN Access Server Driver comes up in Network Connections. Have tried uninstalling it and restarting and also downloading drivers from the HP website.....

Would they have put a Bluetooth Adapter in instead of a Wireless Card ??

I've finally made the jump to get a laptop at home. I just setup a wireless network at work and they came to me asking about wireless printing. I went with a Bluetooth Class 1 Network to avoid conflict the the Wireless-G network. It works fine. Good distance, just no two-way communication (cannot see the ink monitors on the remote PC).

My worry at home is conflicts.

I have a Linksys Wireless SRX400 router at home. I also use Bluetooth for syncing my Treo 650 AND for dial-up networking when I am not in Wi-Fi range.

Does anyone have any experience with hooking up a wireless printer either via Wi-Fi or Bluetooth where you have other services running on the same platform? Just want to know what I am in for if I go with one or the other. Thanks!
 

Answer:Wireless Printing: Bluetooth or Wi-Fi?

Not sure what you mean.

I have a 802.11g printer set up at home without any issues.

I also use BTH to sync my pda and phone as well.

So I bought this wireless game controller for my pc. I didn't really think it would work but I figured Id give it a shot. I plugged it in at home and set to trying to getting it connected. It didn't seem to be connecting to any bluetooth network, so I looked for bluetooth in control panel and it didn't exist. I found out how to turn on bluetooth, but it seems in my 'Change PC Settings' menu there is no Wireless option. I went to the windows 8 metro thing and searched for 'wireless' and again nothing comes up at all. I checked my network and sharing center and then to change adapter settings and Ive got my Qualcomm Atheros AR922x Wireless Network adapter there and the device is working fine, just not connected to anything. Does that even work for bluetooth and connecting wireless peripherals?Anyway, I dont know what to do. I figured it wouldn't work out like I said, but I at least want to know why it's not working out. Anyway, any help with this would be awesome.

hi!I have a problem, my computer (Lenovo s10e , 4187 5LG) at the beginning had the bluetooth and the wireless. But I eliminated some files and the bluetooth and the wireless were deleted.I downloaded the drivers from Lenovo.com and they worked well until a few days ago.This time I didn't delete anything but the sistem doesn't recognize the drivers. For example, it says that the bluetooth is not connected although it is integrated in the computer!!I tried to download again the drivers and reinstall them, but this time nothing has changed, hasn't solved the problem.What can I do???                                                  













Solved!
