S10e Bluetooth DUN Connection Issue

Question: S10e Bluetooth DUN Connection Issue

I'm trying to tether to a Palm Treo 755p to a S10e. I'm using USBModem on the 755p. I've installed Ubuntu re-mix on the S10e (dual boot for Linux and XP) and I can connect to the 755p with no issues using Bluetooth/Linux. When I try to connect to the same device through XP there is NO Bluetooth "option" (Bluetooth modem) to make the DUN connection. I know it all works under Linux but it is frustrating that I can't make the connection under XP! Any ideas on how to get this working under XP? By the way, I can do Bluetooth/Palm syncs from the 755p to XP with no problems. -Karl

Answer: S10e Bluetooth DUN Connection Issue

As a side note, I have gotten this working on other laptops/desktops using the Microsoft XP drivers. The Bluetooth drivers that came with the S10e seem to be the issue or I'm missing something. -Karl

Ok SO i am at the end of my rope, I spent 6 hours today being bounced back and forth from different "support" people trying to get my issue resolved. I have a S10e 4187-39U. Which is SUPPOSED to have the blue tooth installed from the factory. And I KNOW mine doesnt, I have actually taken the wrist rest/mouse pad off and the module and wire arent there, and this was at least confirmed by the "Tech Support" But here is where it gets hairy, the laptop is BRAND NEW, but I purchase it through a 3rd party distributor, (techdata.com) because we get a corporate discount through work for stuff. So nobody wants to help me, I called techdata, and they are ONLY a distributor, they dont mess with them , just resell, it was still sealed from the factory, which makes me upset that lenovo wont take responsibility for it and just send me the part, I can put it in, and its only like a $25 part, but they wong give me the part number and they wont send me on... HELP!

I've recently bought a Bluetooth USB Dongle for my Dell Inspiron 1764 laptop so my wireless headphone could connect to it. The dongle connected and installed fine but when I pressed "Add a device", it saw it as a keyboard and when it tried to install the driver for it, it gave me a "No driver found" for Bluetooth Peripheral Device. It is a Ciberspeed Sports Bluetooth Headphone and it has worked for my iPod so I'm not sure if that's the issue. I appreciate any help.

Hi,I have an issue with connecting through bluethooth to my BT audio device.I am able to connect to the device with my android tablet, with my previous Lenovo laptop and even with my Blackberry.The computer founds the device, it recognises it as a BT audio device/sink, but when I click on the "listen to music" service nothing happens....I have reinstalled/upgraded the BT adapter to version 4.0 (Intel BT adapter v 4).I have tried evrything, I googled the problem etc but I couldn't find a solution, please help, it drives me crazy!Thanks in advance for any comments/ideas.

Answer:Bluetooth audio connection issue (on x240 with Win7)

Wohoo! -- I just solved the exact same problem.  Anyways: I could also pair to my headset, but nothing happened when I clicked the links. (I even tried to install Skype to see if that would enable the link, but that didn't help.) This is what you should do: Disable the Bluetooth radio ("Turn adapter off"). Computer will hang for a while and report a dll hanging. Continue through the dialog box (in effect killing the DLL process). Start the Bluetooth adapter again, and the links work. Use the VoIP link to use your headset for Lync, Skype, Hangouts or whatever. Hope this helps. Please let me know if it works.  Cheers, ~Silverjam :-)

Installed new bios, bluetooth stack 6.10.10(T) . The bluetooth stack sees C510 but when it tryes to pair it says "Detection of service failed" .

When i try pair devices by PCsuite 5.009.00 it goes further.
PC suite give me PIN and C510 ask input, but when i confirm the pin in C510, PCsuite returns error "pairing not successfull, want repeat?"

From this time C510 apears in window "view paired devices" in bluetoothstack options....but PCsuite doesnt see C510 and BluetoothStack neither....

thank you in advance.

Hi there I own a HP Spectre x360 - 13-4070nz (ENERGY STAR) and I just acquired a Bluetooth Headset from Bose, the new Bose QC 35. The headset works like a charm any Windows 10 PC I tried (Dell XPS13, Lenovo Yoga) and with my Android Nexus 5X. However, I have a blocker issue if I use it with the Spectre x360. Pairing works, even if I had to repeat the process several times. Once paired, listening to music works mostly fine ? in stereo mode.The problem arises when I try to perform a call. The problem is the same with any program, Skype, Skype For Business, Skype Preview or my Softphone (Bria). I can hear the counterpart, but they can only hear a really loud static noise. I tried an Echo / sound test service with Skype, and the recorded sound is exactly as my counterpart described. I can record and attach it if you want.I have updated all drivers, soundcard, Bluetooth, BIOS, I have updated from Windows 10 to Windows 10 Anniversary update, and I have update the QC35 from 1.0.3 to 1.06. Nothing helps. I have tried all possible setting configuration, remove the Bluetooth device, added it again etc. Still static noise.It is clearly an issue with the Spectre x360, and as far as I know this model had several other Bluetooth issues before. Therefore my question to HP: could you please look into it and update the drivers to support the Bose QC35, which is a hit on the market?Thank you and best regards

Satellite C870.

1) Issues with Bluetooth - machine couldn't find other devices and there were problems with communications;

2) I'm very, very disappointed with the quality of sound. The speakers are very poor. If I knew I wouldnt'n buy it! Unfortunately, I had no chance to check it and assumed Toshiba will keep the minimum standards in this matter.
In the past (some years ago)

I've used Toshiba laptop and it was OK.
To be honest I've puchased this computed due to my good expirience from the past, but will be more carreful in the future.

Now, I have to life with it as spent 800US.
The rest is OK - for the time being.

Answer:Satellite C870 - sound quality & Bluetooth connection issue

> 1) Issues with Bluetooth - machine couldn't find other devices and there were problems with communications;

What Satellite C870-xxx do you have exactly?
From my own experience some models support BT and some don?t? so probably your unit does not supports BT or you did something wrong while BT configuration.

> 2) I'm very, very disappointed with the quality of sound. The speakers are very poor. If I knew I wouldnt'n buy it! Unfortunately, I had no chance to check it and assumed Toshiba will keep the minimum standards in this matter. In the past (some years ago)

From my own knowledge different models supports different hardware specifications. You can purchase notebook models with Harman-Kardon speakers which provide better sound quality. This unit seems to support standard speakers.
So it?s always a matter of price-value ratio and in my opinion this is not too bad.

Hello folks,

my name is lynn. I have been told on a different forum that my laptop does not have bluetooth on it. So, i went and bought a bluetooth adaptor made by targis. It is a usb device. I have it installed with all drivers. I have a bluetooth iblue 737a+ gps receiver; again, all drivers installed on my laptop for it. For some unknown reason, my computer sees the bluetooth adaptor, but refuses to see the bluetooth GPS receiver. I have had it up at Office depot all morning since i bought the adaptor there, but they could not figure out the problem either. The receiver can be seen when connected via a usb mini cable, but the program i wish to use it with, microsoft streets and trips, requires i use it with bluetooth and not a cable. The adaptor doesn?t see my Windows Mobile phone either. I know the GPS and phone are working properly and fully charged because they see each other and I can use my GPS program on my phone with no problem. . I am out of options and/or ideas. Can anyone suggest anything else i should try? I do have an account on msn and would be happy to voice or video chatg there if someone needs to explain something lengthy to me. Oh, and i am blind so use a screen reader to operate my windows 7 lalptop, but that should not have any bearing on figuring this confounded thign out!! :)

thanks, lynn w.

Answer:Bluetooth GPS connection issue on Toshiba L505 S5990 Windows 7 laptop

Answer:S10E restore issue

Hi and welcome, lucky if you have F11 ... there is a small chance to get windows back...
whats going on ? ...In normal case on S10e  ... hdd is splitted in 2 parts 160GB HDD total 149.1 GB  145.6 GB formatted with NTFS and the part 3.5 GB where the recover lies ..both set to active primary ... if you press F11 (that lies in Master Boot Record) on the first bootable partition "C:" the key is pointed to the recover partition on the end... and start the recover procedure program ... if nothing is changed , it recover as it should
but if there is a non NTFS partition or  a splitted partition "C" the size is different.....thats why it stop ...
The bad thing is when you try to format  or resize/reparted to one .. Parttition C ( or the first partition on HDD) you could loose the F11 function ..
in bad case ..in other words all is lost...safe door closed &  key to throwaway... 
 
 
thats why i say , backup before, you do anything that changes partitons ... Knowledge Base

I have experienced reduced connection speed with my wireless network. When logging in to the S10e, connection strength as displayed in the task bar near the time states "54.0 MBPS". However, many times I check it because of poor browser speed, and the reading is 5.5, or lower. I can correct it by disabling the wireless connection for a few minutes, and then reconnecting, and the speed is back to 54.0 or 48.0. I am concerned that this is a problem that will haunt me. Suggestions? I have installed a 1gb memory chip, but removed it after reading that the ram may impact speed. However, problems continues without ram installed.

I have a Lenovo S10e that came packaged with Linux (SUSE). I didn?t like the OS at all so I?ve installed Win XP Pro on it instead. I?ve been downloading all the drivers from this site (here) and all had been going smoothly until I came to install the Wi-Fi Adapter driver.When I run the .exe for the driver on the S10e (having transferred it on a USB drive) the usual dialogues appear, ?accept the terms, next, next etc...? and at the end of the process when I click the Finish buttonI get the following message:?The contents of this file cannot be unpacked. The executable you are attempting to run has been corrupted. Please obtain another copy of the file, verify its integrity, and try again.?Now I know that?s all very self explanatory but I?ve downloaded the file five times now, tried transferring to the S10e using twodifferent types of USB drive and still the same error every single time. I?m starting to tear my hair out here and was wondering if anyone can offer any advice? Or alternative driver sources etc...?Thanks in advance.

Hello, I recently purchased an IdeaPad S10e from the Lenovo Outlet and I think it is a great little machine. My only issue is that I am unable to use to my home?s wireless network.

Hello, For no reason that I know of, the bluetooth facility on my little S10e has stopped working. I noticed a couple of times when shutting down I got a "BTstackserver" not responding message. I use the laptop to regularly download from a bluetooth enabled device. today, when I go to connect, I am told 'bluetooth device not found'.'Verify that your bluetooth device is properly connected and turned on'. The hardware manual shows the LED config and this is correct, If I press 'Fn' and 'F5' keys, I get the menu to turn on and off both the wireless and Bluetooth. I can enable and disable both wireless and Bluetooth with this menu option BUT when I enable bluetooth, I get the message 'One of the USB devices attached to the system has malfunctioned or is not recognised'. I have removed the installed Bluetooth software and re-installed using both bluetooth install files published on my S10e drivers list on lenovo. Neither one works. I know that you need to install from C:\DRIVERS dir once the installer has finished unpacking. I have tried various other obvious things but with no success. I also enabled 'Bluetooth co-operation' in the wireless lan settings. All I can do now is get at the Bluetooth device under the keyboard cover and have a look at that? Anyone got any suggestions before I get the screwdriver out? (The device is out of warranty).

well i decided to go full bluetooth because im tired of spending money on replacment headphones and broken tangled cables so i brought myself some Tone infinium HBS-900 bluetooth headphones. now on my phone that supports APT-X these things are amazing! but on my computer it seems that im plagued with interference and sound crackling. so i swapped out my realtek AC wireless wifi card and brought a intel 7260 Dualband +bluetooth 4.0
for a while it seemed to be working and now its again crackling and shuddering. its driving me nuts! then i brought THIS

so that i can make anything bluetooth just to my disappointment that i dont think these 2 thing scan connect to each other, i mean how would i connect to things that have no gui together? but someone said they have done it ant it works fine but i can for the life of me find out how to do it.
i have already trying updating the drivers on my computer and i ave the latest. but if i cover my bluetooth or even move 2 feet away from it it crackles and disconnects sometimes. it was not doing that at first and i only tested it with my pc but yea. i tried 4 phones and they are flawless, i could go outside of my apartment and i would be connected on all 4 phones but not on my pc.

My hard drive continues to run even after I shut down my computer. It isn't that noisy - just the normal noise level that one hears when the computer is on. However the only way to get the hard drive to turn off is to unplug the power cord and pull the battery as well - but as soon as either are plugged back in, the noise resumes. Is this typical or is there some way to resolve it? EDIT: Turns out the noise is that of the battery...anyone else hear it even after the netbook is shut down?

Answer:s10e Hard drive/hard disks will not turn off after shutting down. (now a battery issue)

That is quite odd, are you 100% sure it's the hard drive? If you take the HDD/RAM cover off, unscrew the single Hard Drive retaining screw, and pull the drive forward and out, then turn it on, will it make the noise? When it's doing it, if you remove the HDD/RAM door and feel the drive with your hand, is it running, is it still generating heat, make a cheap stethascope with one of those wide straws you get at fast food places and put it up to your ear and the other end to the HDD - maybe try other places, just need to be sure it's the hard drive. If so, all I can suggest is the Hardware Reset procedure which is just holding the power button for 30 secs with the Batt/cord removed. If it is the HDD, I assume it works otherwise and SMART status is good?

Hi,

I really had not this 'Bluetooth connection' before.
But, I really don't know that pairing my Nokia Bluetooth with my HP Laptop Bluetooth would add this Bluetooth connection or NOT.
I really guess this Bluetooth Connection was listed there when I connected my Lapotp Bluetooh with Nokia Bluetooth.
Thus, I will really not have any problems if I deleted it. But I am asking you what benefit of that Bluetooth Connection.
This is below was not here:

Finally Could please let me know how to use this Bluetooth Connection.(How to benefit from it)? I really use an ADSL Internet subscription, and not Dial-up connection. Also, I am connected wirelessly to a Modem-Router. Thus, what password and username should I type in the fields in the above screen shot?

Answer:'Bluetooth connection' is shown in my Network Connection suddnly.

Pairing a mobile phone will create such an entry and there's nothing to worry about. I don't think you can use it to go online since as you said you are using ADSL and if you want to go online via your modem with your phone just use the wifi connection

Answer:VN7-591G bluetooth issue and webcam issue

Don't know about the webcam, but Bluetooth requires installation of the driver that you can find on the Acer support site. Unfortunately for my laptop (also VN7-591G) it lists TWO possible drivers.

Answer:Bluetooth connection PC to PC

Here is the step-by-step way to connect two laptops using Bluetooth.

Software and Hardware Requirements

In-built Bluetooth device on laptopBluetooth dongle (optional)Bluetooth drivers (optional)

Important - Since Bluetooth use short wave radio frequencies for data transfer, devices using radio waves should not be placed within 100 meter radius. Bluetooth signals weaken if the devices are placed more than 100 meters apart. Also before connecting the two laptops using Bluetooth, make sure that neither of the laptop is infected with any sort of virus or malicious program. They can easily get transferred from one laptop to another without your knowledge.

Step 1 ? Determine the Type of Bluetooth
The first step is to determine the type of Bluetooth device your laptop has. Refer user?s manual of your laptop to determine this. If it has inbuilt Bluetooth, proceed to step 3, else, proceed as follows:

Step 2 ? Install Bluetooth
Purchase a Bluetooth dongle from market (usually costs $10) and insert it in one of the USB ports. Windows XP or higher versions of Windows do not require any sort of driver installation, however, if it?s Windows 98, install the drivers. All types of Bluetooth also come bundled with control software, which should also be installed at this step.

Step 3 ? Switch on the Bluetooth
Switch on the Bluetooth of each laptop. A bright blue glowing light indicates that the Bluetooth has been switched on and ready for connectivity.

Step 4 ? Assign Status

Hey, I have a windows 7, on which I have started using a bluetooth mouse. However, it takes alot of time for the bluetooth mouse to get connected to my laptop after startup, which makes it useless because I am unable to do anything until it connects. Is there any way to make the bluetooth software start faster, or connect faster? I tried to look in the task-schedular but I couldnt see the bluetooth option in there, so I am lost on what to do.
 

Answer:Bluetooth Connection

Bluetooth usually takes awhile to connect, due to the fact that Windows has other services and processes that load during log in, prior to bluetooth devices being detected and connecting. What's the make and model of your bluetooth mouse?

Hey guys!

Just recently purchased the Big Jambox, and I want to connect it via bluetooth. I connected it to my phone and Ipod, but it won't connect to my computer? I am trying to install drivers, but I just can't find the right one. I have an ASUS G55VW, and I can't connect to it! Thanks.

Answer:Bluetooth Connection

Are you sure the laptop has Bluetooth? It's listed as an option on the Asus website and if it came with Bluetooth you shouldn't need to install any drivers as it would have come with them already installed from Asus.

You may be able to get the optional Bluetooth module from Asus or Ebay or where ever but it would probably be easier and less expensive to get one of the little USB Bluetooth dongles like this: IOGEAR GBU521 Bluetooth 4.0 Micro Adapter - Newegg.com

Evening One and all, I purchased a cheap laptop at the weekend, and ran a network cable downstairs to it to enable internet/e-mail and lan connection, after a couple of initials problems (resolved here of course :-) )this worked well with full net access plus access to the shared files on the three desktops.Today, it seemed that the opportunity to purchase a bluetooth setup at a discount cost was too much to resist. The access point is a Belkin (no specific model number), and the laptop connection unit is a Belkin usb adaptor. After the initial install, I could access the net via a 'BluetoothNullConnection' modem in the dial-up settings of IE. This is stable enough, but at 115kbps is maybe a little slow as it has a 600k connection available - still it works.The problem is that I cannot access the other pc's on the lan. The standard local area connection quite rightly states that the cable is missing, as did a bluetooth lan adaptor which also appeared. After an uninstall/reinstall, I again have the net access, but still not the lan access - and now the bluetooth lan adaptor is not there either. Given that I can see the router at the 'far end' of the network, can someone suggest how to take this a step further and see the other pc's?If I run the network wizard, the bluetooth adaptor is not available to select as the required connection.The laptop is running xp home, and the pc's xp pro. Also, the desktops are connected via cable to the router (Linksys BEFSR41) as are the cable ... Read more

I am trying to sync my mobile phone(Nokia) with my pc. I have the software and installed it but on first installation was asked to select a connection type. I selected Infrared, but later found that bluetooth is better, so bought a bluetooth dongle instead. I have installed the bluetooth correctly, but on starting Nokia software, I only have the option of infrared for initial connection before I can run the program for the first time. I tried uninstalling then re-installing the software, but have since found out that the software stores a file in the computer to "remember" the first connection method I selected. Therefore, even after system restore followed by re-installing the software, it still asks for an infrared connection. Can someone please tell me how to delete this/these files so I can start afresh using bluetooth because I don't want to buy infrared hardware just to start the program so I can switch to bluetooth!
Can someone please help a very frustrated numpty?!?!

I have been trying to connect a laser measuring device (Leica Disto Plus-Bluetooth enabled) to my computer via a Belkin USB adapter. It doesn't want to connect and I get an error message which asks for a pairing PIN number. I am told by the suppliers of the Leica that it doesn't have a PIN and should connect without one. Can anyone help out?I am running Win XP.

Answer:Bluetooth connection problems

I don't know anything about your laser measuring device. But usually, for bluetooth devices, the first time you try to connect with the computer through the USB adapter, you need to "pair" them by inputting any combination of numbers (both on the computer, and on the external device). The set of numbers can be anything you want. It's just to make sure that you're connecting the right bluetooth device. If there's a keypad on the laser device, just enter any PIN, and do the same on the computer when prompted.

Hi, I have a laptop with a WIDCOMM built in bluetooth and also a desktop pc with a bluetooth dongle attached. My desktop is connected to the internet through a router and I was wondering how I would share the desktop internet connection with my laptop using bluetooth. I tried it but couldnt figure it out how to make the internet work on the laptop. Any ideas? Thanks.

Answer:sharing connection over bluetooth

I have tried, but been unable, to get "Internet Connection Sharing" to work over a Bluetooth connection.The problem is that, in order to enable Internet Connection Sharing, there has to be a free network adapter to connect to the client PC. Windows doesn't recognise the Bluetooth adapter as a valid network adapter for this purpose. I've managed to get file sharing to work over the PAN (Personal Area Network), but that's it. With a file transfer speed of 1Mbps, it is not exactly a fast network!Why though are you trying to share the desktop's internet connection instead of connecting the laptop directly to the router? That, after all, is the purpose of a router.

Hi - Not sure this is a networking issue but I don't see an obvious category. I've got a Vizio Model D50-D1 tv and wanted to add a Vizio 38"soundbar and woofer. I asked Vizio if my TV is Bluetooth compatible and got a silly answer that did not answer my question. My conclusion is that it does not have Bluetooth and so my question is whether there is an external device I can add to the TV that will allow me to pair it with the Bluetooth soundbar. I know that the small USB dongle to a computer does not work. However, are there other devices out there that might plug into the TV's USB or other port?

Answer:Bluetooth connection not working

Hi, heath
 
What is the machine type and model of your ThinkPad, and what is your operating system? Also, when the event described in your post happened, were you using the computer actively, or just something like playing music or watching a film? And what version is your Bluetooth driver? 
 
My first recommendation would be to make sure that your BIOS is updated, as an older BIOS can sometimes be responsible for odd issues. You can find the latest BIOS for your system here. Just select your machine type and find the driver associated with your operating system.
 
Best of luck, and let me know how it goes
Adam

My iPhone is connected (paired) with my T400 (7417-CT0), but the T400 says there is a problem with the connection. There is an exclamation point on the iPhone's icon in the Devices and Printers window. I want to get photos off the iPhone via drag-and-drop or copy-and-paste. When I right-click on the icon and click Connect using >> Access Point, I get an error message saying "The connection with the Bluetooth device failed." Any ideas what to do?

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.

Answer:Sony Bluetooth KBD Connection help

That right there would be reason enough for me to never buy another product from them again.
Using a ridiculous proprietary connection system without allowing the software to be downloaded separately.

On that note does it work at all?
Have you tried changing your power options to always on? (may help keep connection alive)

Hi there, I have a T61p machine with Vista Ultimate, SP1. I have all the latest patches from Lenovo. I have a docking station that I use at my desk. When the machine is docked I used a Microsoft Intellimouse Explorer for Bluetooth and Keyboard Elite for Bluetooth. Ever since I purchaced this machine (about 3 months ago, with Vista Ultimate) I have been having the same issue. If I have not used the keyboard for sometime (say greater than 5 minutes) the first time I click any key on the keyboard, the machine partially hangs. It will continue to play video or do other non interactive tasks, but for the next 45 seconds to 1 minute, the machine will not accept input from the keyboard, and it won't accept input from the mouse. I previously used the same Bluetooth mouse and keyboard with a Dell laptop and had no such issues (in fact, I still own that laptop, and it still has no issues with this keyboard and mouse) What action should I take?

Answer:Bluetooth connection hangs

Hello, Are there any power management features enabled for the Bluetooth adapter or devices in the Device Manager?  If so, does disabling them solve the problem? Regards, Aryeh Goretsky

Answer:wireless bluetooth connection

Hi, you seem to have done just about everything possible, so one can only guess that the Bluetooth Dongle (that is what it is called) may be faulty.

Its in the bluetooth security setting, I had a look at the sony errickson I have and its a per phone setting, so if you linked to your friends phone go into the options (more options) for the phone named "your friend" and you will find a setting for "connect".. "always" or "ask each time" or similar.

I suggest reading the manual for your phone, and turn off bluetooth visibility or turn off bluetooth if your not using it, I saw a program where a guy used a portable PC to hijack bluetooth phones and earn money for a premium rate number.

PC connected to Internet by cable.PC has Bluetooth Dongle.Notebook has bluetooth.Both XP.Have connected both via bluetooth.Configured Internet connection on PC to share it asked what to share it with chose bluetooth network.Can not access Internet through notebook?New toy no fun what have I done wrong?

Answer:Bluetooth and connection sharing

My experience with Windows XP was that it didn't recognise the Bluetooth PAN (Personal Area Network) as a valid LAN and therefore wouldn't allow me to enable Internet Connection Sharing on my Internet connection (which is an ethernet connection to a router).

Unable to pair or connect LG phone and Asus laptop.
1. Both bluetooth adapters turned on
2. Both are set as discoverable
3. If I use phone to find other bluetooth devices, it sees computer and tries to pair but it shows me pairing code and the computer doesn't show any code.
4. If I try to add device on the computer, it finds the phone, but when trying to pair the phone pops up message with pairing code but the computer doesn't show any code.
5. Then occaisionally a small pop up appears on the computer telling me another bluetooth device is trying to connect but if I say OK I get connection error.

I have tried connecting other bluetooth devices and never been successful. Is there an alternative generic bluetooth driver or program that maybe will work? Or any suggestions??

so usally(not always) there is no delay in sound. but when i try to go use my bluetooth headset with msn, every sound stops. my girlfriend can hear me, but i cant hear anything anymore. but as soon as i press the stop conversation button in msn, i hear everything she said, and the sounds that where supposed to play during that time. Now there is a massive delay in sound(about 30 seconds), only fixable by re-pairing with the notebook.

how can i fix this? i bought this expensive Jabra halo just for chatting with my girlfriend...

It is either the driver or the pairing. I would re-install the driver and then re-pair the device.

I'm using OptiPlex 3040; Win7 SP1 64 bit; 
I'm trying to connect my BT headset (Beoplay H9) using the built-in Bluetooth, and every time I'm trying I get an error.
I've tried to get a BT dongle, connect it and got errors when trying to install the drivers.

I've tried a different computer (same model) and all worked perfectly.

I have a pair of bluetooth wireless speakers Jam Plus.
I pair and get the message: "Setup Incomplete because of a metered connection." I did go to the section that allows me to turn this on or off. But neither option seems to work. I can pair one mono speaker but not both.

Trying to get a Bluetooth connection to my new Palm T|X

Setting up Bluetooth, I checked &#8220;Turn Discovery on&#8221; & unchecked &#8220;Turn off the Bluetooth radio&#8221; in the options Tab under Bluetooth devices.

When I tried to apply these changes I received the following error message (which Microsoft does not seem to know exists, from my search of their support section):

An error occurred while Windows was saving your settings. The following settings were not saved: Discoverability settings Connection settings

&#8220;Restore defaults&#8221; did not turn on Discovery, but did allow Bluetooth radio. Restore Defaults received a similar message (minus Connection settings)

Answer:Solved: Bluetooth connection

my first suspect would be the bluetooth device attached to your laptop, i would try to use a different bluetooth enabled device to connect to your laptop, try someones mobile phone or even a handsfree headset if you have one

hello again. Jst a few hours ago I bought a usb bluetooth dongle, I think it's class II, and connected to my computer. It is recognised and seems to work. The only bluetooth device i have is my Pocket PC, a HP iPAQ h1940.

My computer can find it and set up a connection, and my PDA can find my computer. my problem starts when I want to do anything useful. My PDA doesnt find any services that I recognise as useful (OBEX File Transfer, most importantly). it only finds something (a so-called service) called "P" and the icon is a pair of cogs with a question mark over it. It doesnt do anything.when i click on it on my PDA, it just says "Connecting ...." for ever and doesnt actually connect. what's wrong with it?! This happens with my PC and my laptop.

I've connected to a computer with my PDA and transferred files before so i know it's possible, and should be much easier than this, but i dont know what's going wrong now.

I bet the problem is really obvious :-S. anything that might help?

Answer:Bluetooth connection with Pocket PC

ok, still not solved the problem, but I discovered on the disc that came with the dongle there was Bluesoleil 1.4 which i installed. But for some reason it crashes the comp everytime I put the dongle in while the program is running. I get BSOD with reference to USBOHCI.SYS which is apparently a problem a lot of people have had but not one person seems to know the soluton too, or maybe i'm just missing it... WHAT DO I DO?!?! I just wanna transfer some files!

I started looking for the Widcomm software but I can't find it at all. any help with that?

oh btw, the dongle is a Silicon Wave, it says here #points at Device Manager#.
My PDA apparently uses WIDCOMM; is that a problem?
