Hello Vista Forums,

Ive personally been painfully searching this so called world wide web with no success in finding anything close. All i get is getting bt to work with x86 drivers. It cannot be the case that they are non-existent. wtf is non existent on the www?

Im sure alot of gamers are looking for the same thing, ive seen multiple threads on here and i hate to bring it up again.

Q: Does the Xbox360 Controller really plug and play on x64 vista?

Ive been through more than 100 pages worth of forum rubbish aswell as a couple gay guides that dont mention nothing about x64 driver.

If anyone can find a guide 40 pages long, aslong as its a x64 driver or some instructions on how to get it to work please! im dying to play prostreet/undercover/grid :'(

Answer:x64 - PS3/Sixaxis Controller Driver

yes it does natively.

I wanted to connect my wii controllers, but i had already installed dualshock drivers, which don't let you use any other

How do I uninstall them?

Hi,

I'll try to get everything down so far and feel free to ask questions so I can fill in the blanks. I've got a decent PC, it was custom built by my brother who is a bit more techy than me.

Despite this, I only really play one game. Final Fantasy XIV: Online Heavensward.I've played this with a pad, sometimes connected via usb lead and sometimes connected via a small bluetooth USB adapter.

Recently however the pad has been doing this incredibly frustrating thing whereby I'll be playing normally and it'll just lock up for a few seconds. My guy continues running in the direction he was running, or my action bar remains open as if I was still holding down the R2 / L2 button but none of my other buttons will respond. The rest of the game continues along just fine, not graphical glitches, there's no lag, nothing is slowed or stopped. Just my controller that stops working / responding for just a second or two and then responds again.

Now I've tried what I thought was everything.

1. I changed the pad.
2. I replaced the bluetooth adapter with an official Sony DS4 wireless PC adapter.
3. I tried using it wired.
4. I tried using different USB ports.
5. I attempted to update the drivers. (was told I already have the best one available).
6. I completely removed (I think) all drivers and any software associated with any of the controllers.
7. I deleted and reinstalled the game (an hour or two process for a 3 year old + MMO)

None of this seems to h... Read more

I bought an i& desktop with BT keyboard & mouse. I've recently begun to lose connectivity with the keyboard.

I also upgraded to a Samsung SSD and I mention that as it is the reason I removed a lot of bloatware. Long story short, I call Sony and they cant help naturally except to send a new keyboard. The instrucitons tell me to use a file on C named wconnect.exe to enable pairing of the new keyboard.

And it's one of the files I cleaned out and Sony cant help except to tell me to do a factory restore to get it. I dont have the three days it would take.

Can anyone make any suggestions that would help ? Thanks.

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

I have a Lenovo T500 (Type 22413XU) that has an External Monitor Port which I assume is VGA (right size and configuration). I'm running Windows 7 32 bit. I want to send a signal to my Sony Bravia LCD TV Model KDL-46V25L1  which has S-video. I purchased a VGA cable converter which was just a wire with VGA on one end and S-video and yellow RCA video combination on the other. So far,this does not work. The computer recognized that I had attached it to the TV but no picture appeared. I have been told that converting VGA thru a cable can't be done. I bought this adapter on eBay. Is this solution viable or do I need to approach it from a different angle? Thanks for the help.

Answer:T500: add bluetooth

takedown,
 
This question has come up before in other threads.  Basically, the bluetooth card for the T500 is located behind the LCD bezel.  Any parts concerning the LCD are not replaceable by customers.
 
So if you order your system without bluetooth, the best route is a peripheral solution (like you already have).  Having a licensed servicer install this part would be expensive.

Answer:T500 AD2P Bluetooth Woes

What do you mean by "Thinkpad Bluetooth stack installed"?is "stack" the same as software/driver? I can only witness my own problem: bluetooth installed correcty but didn't work properly. My laser bluetooth connection would often drop (although the mouse was always displayed in the device manager) and I always had to turn the bluetooth off and and on to make it work, which became irritating after a couple of weeks. I finally found out that I had the wrong driver version installed: If you look in the device manager, you will see that you probably have driver version 6.2.0.9000 for the bluetooth device.unfortunately this is not good enough after the xxxx9000 there are more numbers (which are not displayed).I realized there are 2 drivers version out there. the one that windows 7 installed and the one provided by Lenovo. The one provided by Microsoft has version 6.2.0.9000.300 I believe. the one provided by lenovo is 6.2.0.9000.000I uninstalled the most recent version xxxxxx.300 and put back the one from lenovo website.again, I can't remember if is was xxxxxx.300 but it was higher than xxxxx.000Since then my mouse works consistently

Hi guys, I recently had to replace HDD and install a fresh copy of Windows 7 on my laptop, and when it came to re-downloading drivers, I encountered a few problems. First being, the bluetooth. When I was installing the 'Bluetooth with Enhanced Data Rate Software' I kept getting an error: "Bluetooth SoftwareNo Bluetooth device was detected. Please make sure that your Bluetooth device is plugged in properly in order to continue installation."  Which is strange because when I inserted my previous hard drive, my bluetooth was working flawlessly. I even tried installing the same software from the same HDD onto other HDD, yet the problem persisted. The light on the panel is not lighting up. Another problem is with the Function keys. I downloaded and installed 4 different versions of  'Hotkey Features Integration' software, and I'm still not getting any feedback when using the volume keys, ThinkVantage button, Fn+F2, or any other one. I rebooted the computer multiple times, reinstalled the software multiple times, and even looked in CMOS settings as to 'what could be wrong'.  Thank you in advance.

I tried downloading a version of the driver directly from Intel with similar results. The setup claims "No Intel Network Connections found on this computer- no drivers were installed". Anyone had any luck getting the network drivers installed on a T500 restaged with Windows 2003 Server? Thanks

I've been looking at the threads over in the R Thinkpads & SL Thinkpads forums for solutions to do with Nokia's & Activesync with TP BT as I have some users with Nokias. What I wasn't expecting was to run into the same problems with my Treo 750 on WinMobile v6 - it connects just fine on USB cable, syncs all my stuff but simply will not talk to the Treo on BT. I nuked the Treo & rebuilt - same result. I removed BT Enhanced II software, deleted the BT device from Network in Device Manager, tried to use the MS BT drivers (failed) tried to run an Update Drivers by Scanning for new devices then pointing it to the folder with the w32 drivers, edited the Bth.inf file with the id's from the BT in device manager... One thing I noticed was the on reinstall of the BT software, the BT device manager entry moved from Network Adapters into a Bluetooth Devices folder in Device Manager. And now, instead of just the BT adapter showing, I have Bluetooth Bus Enumerator AND Thinkpad Bluetooth with Enhanced Data Rate II Any ideas on how to get this working? Seeing as I am getting the same result with a Palm device as the Nokia, I am thinking this is an incompatability between Activesync & Widcomm BT stack rather than anything phone related. Any suggestions for a way to connect phones for Outlook sync without using Activesync?

Hi, I'm having some difficulty in getting my bluetooth headset to work with Skype (or anything else for that matter). here's the current state of things: My headset is set up and paired as a "hands free audio device". In "my bluetooth places" it shows up with a good signal strength. Authorization is set to "headset" only (no audio gateway). The version of the Broadcom Bluetooth Software is 5.5.0.580  . Looks pretty ok - but unfortunately it shows neither up as an  audio device in the control panel (Win XP SP3) - nor does Skype recognize the headset. Maybe I'm overlooking something fundamental...? Any input would be appreciated. Thomas PS.: The headset works fine on my cellphone. And I can synchronize the cellphone with the laptop via Bluetooth, no problems there.Message Edited by ThBa on 03-15-2009 05:43 PM

Answer:Problem with T500, Bluetooth Headset, and Skype

Good evening People. I have a bit of a problem with the bluetooth device module in Windows XP.  It is a T500, type: 2056 laptop that gives "the device could not be found" error in the Bluetooth device diagnostics.  I replaced the bluetooth device module and it still cannot pick up the bluetooth module.  The drivers for the module are installed in device manager and it says that the device is working properly, but yet it cannot find or pick up the module.  The bluetooth module is enabled in the bios as well...... Any suggestions?? Wazzy808

Hello, I've read several posts about this, but none of them solved my problem. I have a T500 2055-RH2, with windows 7 64bits. I just bought a bluetooth mouse online and imagine how I feel after 3 hours of useless debugging to install a mouse. Actually, my problem is more basic, I just can't seem to have bluetooth working. I tried to install: Bluetooth with Enhanced Data Rate Software II for Windows 7, Vista - ThinkPad  When I do install this, it eventually says I have no bluetooth device, so somehow my bluetooth adapter is NOT enabled. I then tried to do Fn-F5 to enable it, but it's no use, because I can only see my WIFI in there, no trace of bluetooth... From the forum, I tried to install: ThinkPad Power Management driver for Windows 7 I think it was already installed, but I installed it anyway, still no change, nothing in Fn-F5, still nothing. I then even installed a WIDCOMM (broadcom) driver, but then again, it says it can't find any bluetooth device. Are there any depencies I don't know about? Should I reinstall anything? What the HELL is wrong?! How hard is it supposed to be to install such a basic function as bluetooth??! Should I throw that laptop out the window? Because I really want to... (arg!)  Help please...! Thanks...

Question: Dualshock 4 on PC

Hi,

I'm not great with computers. Please help.

I play a game on my pc, online, and I use a Dualshock 4 control pad to play it as the game is optimised / designed around one. I have tried this wired, bluetooth and wifi (using an official 1st party Dualshock 4 specific adaptor) and no joy. I've tried a different controller also, wired.

What happens is, I'll be playing, moving, running, jumping or performing any other action and all of a sudden my controller will 'lock up' meaning my character will keep running in the direction they were running, or the screen will continue to spin in the direction I was spinning it, if I was holding a trigger down, the game would continue to act as if the trigger were being held down etc.

for just a split second, then it work again. Sometimes this happens twice in quick succession.

It can happen once in a whole night, or not at all, or it can happen multiple times in the space of a few minutes.

I THINK its something to do with my computer restarting my usb connections. You know like how if you unplug something or plug something in to a usb slot your device manager will refresh all the usb connections? Its like that but I've no idea what is causing it. Maybe one of the devices connected via usb is causing them to play up but I'm wondering if there's a simple way for me to diagnose which one it might be?

Answer:2nd Request - PCI Memory Controller for ThinkPad T500 2081-CTO OS Vista 64bit

I would suggest that you forget about turbo memory. Intel quit talking about it and they have not released a driver since 2009. That is 2 years before service pack 1 was released. I ran tests and I was never able to measure any improvement with a card installed. As far as I am concerned, it is just something else to break and interfere with other components.,

Greetings, I have my system configured to use the Intel Integrated graphics (set to internal in the bios to save power) and I am experiencing the following graphical problems.  I am running the latest bios and display driver from Lenovo, as provided by ThinkVantage System Update.  Details of the drivers are in the directx diagnostics below.  I have tried to install the latest Intel graphics driver from Intel's website for this chipset, but it says that my system is not supported (possibly something to do with ATI's Hybrid Graphics). This does not occur in OpenSUSE 11.2 (even with the 3D Gnome desktop), but it does in Windows x64 with Aero.  It usually occurs after watching SlingBox or NetFlix Instant View, but it has occurred in the past without those activities.  It has not occurred when using the ATI graphics adapter (set to dedicated in the bios), at least from the limited amount that I have made use of it. Model:  20828zu DirectX Diagnostics (full system / driver specs):http://home.comcast.net/~quako33/MISC/DxDiag.txt Screenshots of the problem:http://home.comcast.net/~quako33/Images/gpu_problem1.pnghttp://home.comcast.net/~quako33/Images/gpu_problem3.png Any ideas on how to resolve this without having to switch over to the ATI graphics adapter will be appreciated. Finally... the bluetooth question... any keystroke to disable only the bluetooth?  When I hit fn+f5, it disables the wifi and the bluet...

Answer:T500 Intel Graphics Anomalies with a side of BlueTooth

It's a bug in the drivers. If you have 2+1GB or 2+4GB of RAM memory this will occur. Did you try to disable Aero? It might help. From what I understand the only way to fix this issue is to buy another 2GB module (2+2GB), or wait until a new graphics driver is released. Regarding the Bluetooth;Make sure you have Lenovo Hotkey Installed (If you have ran Lenovo System Update you probably have this installed).Navigate to "C:\Program Files\Lenovo\HOTKEY" and open "TpFnF5.exe" and hit the "Settings for Fn + F5" button. I must admit I didn't really get if you had the Fn + F5 issues in Windows or OpenSUSE, but the behavior for Fn + F5 under Ubuntu 9.10 is:WLAN/BT/OFF toggle (Fn+F5 press once: Wlan and BT off/Press second time: BT off, Wlan on/Third time: BT on, Wlan off/Press another time: BT and Wlan on)If that is of any help to you.

Greetings!  I've been banging my head against this for awhile now.  My company had a customized T500 last year with a Lenovo wireless card in it, and now we've switched to an off-the-shelf model with the Intel card.  Suddenly, we cannot print consistently to Bluetooth printers. I say "consistently" because it *will* print, but only 1 job.  Then you have to power off/on the printer to print another job, rinse and repeat.  The only thing that seems to stand out as the culprit is when I go to Enable the Bluetooth Printer Service, it tells me "Unable to start the Bluetooth printer service.  Verify the local printer is physically connected to this computer by a USB or parellel cable, is set as the default print, and is turned on." This same printer (HP Officejet 470) will work just fine on our older T500's, along with other even older T42 models.  Also, the printer works great when on a USB cable -- it's just the Bluetooth that gives us problems.  All the other Bluetooth services appear to be enabled OK -- it's the Printer Service that has an error. One thing:  the Bluetooth printing works fine in the factory Windows Vista installation.  But we run a customized Windows XP sp2 load.  However, I've tried updating all the drivers I can think of and installing the full HP software suite, all to no avail.  And I evidently appear to be the only person this has ever happened to, because there is nothing via Google...

Hi everyone, I am a new T500 2081 user.  I did a Windows 7 pro x64 clean install and was able to install all the ThinkVantage software including the hotkey driver, so I can use Fn+F5 to activate the Bluetooth.  The problem is everytime I restart my T500 the Bluetooth is off by default.  I have to press Fn+F5 to activate it again and again.  I am getting a Thinkpad Bluetooth laser mouse and it will be a pain if I have to activate my mouse every time the computer is restarted. When I boot my computer in Ubuntu 9.10 on another partition of the hard drive the Bluetooth is always on, so I guess the issue in Windows 7 is a software setting one.  Any idea how to fix it?  Thank you!!!

Recently one of the analogue sticks on my Dualshock 3 (PS3) controller developed the commen 'sticky stick' problem. As I am going to be replacing the stick soon I am wondering whether or not I should remove the rumble motors- seeing as I never have the rumble on- thus making the controller much lighter. My concern is that this may cause some damage, as removing the motors would leave some solder with no connection on the main board. I can't see anything wrong with doing this but thought it would be best to check and ask for someone else's opinion. Thank you in advance.

Answer:Dualshock 3 lightweight modification

Shouldn't be an issue that I could see.

Are you planning on leaving the wires on and just taping them off, or are you planning on removing the wires from the board as well?

I'm really hoping someone can read this post and help a little bit.  Let me start with this, at this point, I know I'm screwed so I'm just looking for some help on why this might have happened.  A little background, my T500 has been flawless, and I love it too death.  I work with hundreds of people that swear by Mac's and I say how much I love my Lenovo everyday.  But regardless, I don't think it's a Lenovo issue.
 
So I have a T500 with 8GB memory, Kingston SSD, Windows 7 64bit.  Symantec antivirus updated, Windows defender malware tools.  No viruses anywhere.
 
Everything's been great till about a week ago.  At that time, several windows updates and updates from Lenovo's site were installed.  Including a windows update that's supposed to help the boot up speed of computers with and eSata port that's not in use.
 
Anyway, everything has been pretty good except two things.  I kept getting an error every boot up that the bluetooth stack service couldn't start.  Second, every time the computer would wake up from hibernation, I would get a blue screen on the device driver ianvstor.sys.

Answer:T500: boot up error, bluetooth stack service, hibernation- Seriously searching for help.

Stop booting the drive immediately, and run a disk recovery program on it.The closest thing I could think of is that the Uninstaller went haywire and started deleting files beyond it's target scope. (I know this first hand; I wrote an installer/uninstaller myself in VB6 that did the exact thing to my drive. Fortunately, I was dual-booting and recovered all of my files using the other partition.)I think it stopped booting because a few key driver files were wiped out. After trying to recover your files, try an offline SFC pass like so:http://www.winhelponline.com/blog/run-sfc-offline-windows-7-vista/Not sure if it'll pick up on missing files, but it will replace modified files.Chances are, a fair bit of files were wiped.

Hi guys,

I have a Sony Vaio and i cant seem to get my ethernet to work. Now ive contacted Sony, and they have said that i can buy a recovery disc of 60?. As a student that is way to much money.

Now i hopefully can explain all this without getting it to packed, Ive checked for any drivers on the sony sites.
The only driver i saw(that had some word of ehternet :P) was 'ethernet driver' and i downloaded that.
Now the driver installs in like 2-3 seconds, which seems not right, checked at my drivers and still was giving me questionmarks

Now there are 3 drivers that come up with a questionmarkthose are in dutch but hopefully experts know what it means
-Base system
- ethernet controller
- sm-buscontroller

When right clicked, i can search for drivers on the internet. but that doesnt work either.
Last but not least my modelnumber is: SVE14AA11M and my product name is: SVE14A1V1EB

I hope someone can help me out with this!

Thanks, Tim

Would an "SM Bus Controller" that is missing drivers cause bluetooth devices not to run? Ive had that message in the device manager ever since my upgrade to Ultimate. Tried the GPU chipset on the AMD site with no results. And even though my bluetooth devices say they install, my BT icon says "no bluetooth device connected" with three different transmitters. Ive been battling this bluetooth issue for over a month and its stressing me out! ANY help is appreciated specs are listed below.

AMD A4-3305M APU 1.9GHZ

Answer:sm bus controller/bluetooth

Hi

Yes it could as you need to install your chipset driver as that is the SMBus driver, then install any BT driver.

Any device that in Device Manager that has a yellow ! mark by it can cause issues with hardware,

Weirdly Toshiba no drivers are listed on the Toshiba site I looked at, so maybe attaching the log from the below may give us clues, unless you already have a driver CD from Toshiba to allow you to re-install these drivers.







Download the free, Speccy HERE then run Speccy and click File > Save as Text File, then attach the log as per instructions below (note: as Speccy also now lists more data it likely will have your Windows licence serial key also in the log, so look for Operating System and under that Serial Number and delete the code and Save the log)

Then attach your log to your next post as per these instructions HOW TO: Attach Items To Your Post Click to expand...

So I was having some serious issues with my Sony Vaio (VPCYB13KD Canada) so I decided to do the Sony version of a clean install. Basically it takes all the software from a partition and makes your computer run like it's 'factory fresh'.

It fixed all my issues but for some reason my bluetooth has completely vanished. Yes, I've tried downloading the drivers from the Sony site but for some reason they won't appear. It goes through the whole process and says it was successfully installed but in the program list it's not there.

Also, it is does not appear in the Device Manager list (unknown or otherwise) and there is no option to send files when right clicking them. It is as if the bluetooth component of my laptop has vanished! I'm completely sure it works as I was using it this morning. Some software has gone haywire and it's driving me nuts.

Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks

Answer:Sony Vaio Bluetooth

Nevermind, there isn't a physical switch but when you download the SmartWi driver, you can turn it off and on virtually. By default, Bluetooth is off.

Question: T500 3G connection

I've always used my T500 (2243-64G) with Wi-Fi and LAN connections, nut now I need to use a mobile 3G connection. I see a little slot for a SIM card close to the battery, but I don't understand if my laptop has the card to manage the connection. I'm searcing for old datasheet, but I don see anything useful. What can I do? Thanks in advance.

Answer:T500 3G connection

AFAIK, a SIM card must be in that slot if you have a subscribed to broadband account.  That requires a monthly fee to the provider.  An easier solution, if you do not have built-in broadband, is to use a USB broadband modem obtained from a provider of choice, such as Verizon, T-Mobile, Sprint, etc., along with their provided software access. I use my Droid phone's hotspot that has a Verizon subscription with my T510. Before that, I used a Sprint C777 Expresscard modem along with Sprint software.

Not using ACM. In Denmark. Using XP Pro (Lenovo Image). This is the only T500 computer we have at the moment so I cant try with another computer. Computer came with a Sonofon SIM card but my company has a contract with TDC (.dk). At first when I started the  "Mobile Broadmand Connection Manager" it asked for the pin number and failed to activate a correct pin number. This problem went away after I ran "System Update" and updated anything connected to WAN, wireless and networking. After it started accepting the pin number the "Mobile Broadmand Connection Manager" went on to say "Your carrier is currently unsupported. Please contact your carrier for more information". It did however create a connection under "Network Connections". The connection starts, but on "registering ......" it fails with a error code 734 and a countdown to a redial. The connection that it made has the correct phone number and no username or password. Tried calling the carrier/TDC although they gave me all the all the time in the world, but they could not help me. They did go over the connection with me and the phone number "*99***1#". They also me that the SIM ID I was calling from did not show any tried connection attempts, so it looks like Im not hitting their servers. I tried installing Access Connection Manager and that did nothing (except aggravate my boss/the user). The connection does not show up under wireless connections. Went over every sin... Read more

I have a Sony VAIO PCV-RX741 (XP Pro SP2) that I had to reinstall the OS and clean up. Most everything has come back fine except my monitor (cannot go above 800x600 res even though it supports 1024x768) i believe the problem is the video controller driver is not installed.

I downloaded and used the drivershq.com driver detective and it downloaded sis_v614103671_64bit.zip which contains a setup for this driver, however the UseDLL failed causing two dll's not to load...(SisBase.dll and SisParse.dll) so the installation stops...any ideas?

Can anyone assist?

I can only get a 100 Mbps wired connection (not 1 Gbps) on my T500.  I am connecting to a Netgear GS605 switch.  I have tried using exactly the same port and cable that gives 1 Gbps on another computer (a Dell XPS 420) but the T500 will still only connect at 100 Mbps.  Both computers are running Vista Ultimate.  I have tried changing the Advanced/Link Speed & Duplex setting (in the Intel 82567LM device driver) from Auto Negotiatitation to  1.0 Gbps Full Duplex but this does not help.  Any suggestions?

Answer:T500 gives only 100 Mb wired connection; not 1 Gb

have you tested transfer speeds to see if it's simply misreporting your connection protocol?   i've found more than one system reporting 100 Mbps yet transferring anywhere from 75 MBps to 105 MBps (.6 Gbps to .84 Gbps). also, have you turned off wireless on each system?   i've seen vista transfer over wireless even though a wired connection was present.   unfortunately it doesn't automatically choose the faster connection.

I'm having a problem with my T500 WI-FI connection. When I start the laptop in about 70% of the time it will connect to my network and everything will be fine. The other 30% of the time it will come up and either not connect at all to the router or will connect to the router but not to the modem for the internet connection. Its very eratic. So that you know I have two other computers running on this wireless network and they have no problem connecting and staying up (BTW... they are running at the same time I'm trying to bring up the T500 and get on without a hitch). I had the wireless modem replaced by Lenovo and it didn't fix anything. I'm currently using Microsoft's Network and sharing center to bring up the connection because I tried Lenovo's Access Conections and initially thought that it may be the problem. This is going on 5 weeks now and this problem is driving me crazy. Can anyone help?

So I have an Xbox One Bluetooth controller, with a Bluetooth 4.0 adapter, made by some Chinese company, I think. The issue is that occasionally my controller doesn't respond for a second or so, and that in of itself has created lag spikes in some games that freak out when the controller disconnects even momentarily (I'm looking at you, Bioshock series). Is this a Windows/controller issue, or is it more likely the BT adapter (the latter of which I'm willing to bet on)?

I recently purchased a Sony SRS-X11 Bluetooth speaker (recommended by Which Magazine).
I have not been able to find a Windows driver to connect this speaker to my operating system. Can any one help or have any suggestions.

I have purchased a Bluetooth dongle which appears to be working fine: the system recognises the speaker through the dongle but when I run the set up, the system says it is looking for software updates to complete the process but that is as far as it goes because I get an error message informing me that software can not be found. I have also contacted Sony and they can't help and told me to search online for a Windows driver.

Answer:Driver needed to run Sony Bluetooth speaker

The bluetooth "dongle" market is a very complicated one and is full of a lot of low quality products which are often not supported, you could, ( if you can discover the information because your hardware is from a major manufacturer ), try contacting the dongle manufacturer, but these are often small 3rd world or far east companies, that appear and disappear overnight. The additional software the dongle is looking for could easily be something from a long gone affiliate of the hardware manufacturer, as it was normal for these devices to use free libraries of functions, which are no longer available.

there is a company called BlueSoleil, the most easy-to-use, innovative and interoperable Bluetooth software, Bluetooth driver which is a major player in the blue tooth market (though not a driver only source) which my support your dongle though this may mean additional costs. best way would IMHO the return the dongle and purchase something from one of the major suppliers

Edit

The following is a list of the main chipset manufacturers for Bluetooth - if you can find out the name of the Chip in your device you may be able to obtain drivers direct from one of these companies although some do not deal direct with the public it may be worth a try ( search for the company support site as the links are email addresses of sales contacts)
