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.)

Answer: i had a problem about bluetooth connection in z400

hi Charles_xiang,

Welcome to the Forums.

Are you getting pairing issues?
- if you are, can you provide the error

Also, try the following:
1. Enable the bluetooth by pressing the Windows logo key? +C > Change PC Settings > Wireless (left pane) and toggle Bluetooth to ON.
- when finished, try to clear the paired devices on your phone and pair it again to the PC

2. If you have the Intel Centrino 2230 (Wi-Fi+Bluetooth) combo adapter, navigate to the Control Panel (large icon view) > Programs & Features and uninstall the Intel + WiFi bluetooth software.
-when done, install the following:
Intel® PROSet/Wireless Software and Drivers for Windows 8* (install this first)
Intel® PROSet/Wireless Bluetooth Software for Windows 8*

-after installing, repeat Step 1 and observe

Let me know your findings.


Regards

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.

My Z400 arrived on last Friday and its BT stopped working two days later. When I checked its status in the Device Manager, I found this error message in its Property box: "Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43" Googling this code, I've found several people reporting it, and even for Windows 7, or the Intel BT, so it looks like a Microsoft driver issue and not a hardware problem. I wonder if this happened to anybody else here and found a fix for it. 













Solved!

I recently bought my laptop here in Saudi Arabia and I feel so sad to find out that the WIFI connection isn't that good. I have my old laptop that I regularly use to connect with the same WIFI connection in my home and I never experienced connection problems. To my dismay, the new laptop ( LENOVO Z400 ) which I bought has a very weak connectivity and most of the times could not able to connect to the WIFI. The signal strenght indicator below the screen constantly changes. Any idea how to deal with the WIFI connectivity issue?

Answer:Poor WI-FI connection on Z400

I have also an issue with my wifi. It cannot connect to wifi once the distance of Z400 is about 3 meters from the access point. System Information:Ideapad Z40071CN31WW v1.110 BIOSQualcom Atheros AR9485WB-EG WLAN Card w/ 10.0.0.209 driver version.Did Lenovo have any solution to fix this issue?Did it need to update the bios or wifi driver? or replace the wlan card hardware?

My apologies if this isn't the correct thread for this post. In my opinion Bluetooth falls in the networking niche. Please move it to the appropriate thread if not. Thanks!

First off I want to thank you for any help you may provide and for this wonderfull website! This is my first post here as I am pretty tech savvy and don’t usually find myself in the position where I need to ask for help. With that being said I will get to the point of this post.

I recently bought a cell, a T-Mobile Sparq to be completely accurate, and tried to connect it to my laptop via Bluetooth. My laptop is an Asus G75VW which comes with BT capabilities. When I run the BT suite and click “Add a Device” it sits at the “Searching for a device.. Make sure your device is discoverable.” Prompt for as long as I let it without discovering my phone. I made sure my phone’s BT is active and discoverable. My next step was to go into my Control Panel>Administrative Tools>Component Services> Services (Local) to make sure BT and its dependencies where active, which they were. I updated all my related drivers and when that didn’t work I un-installed and re-installed them, to no avail. I checked my device manager to make sure there were no conflicts there and found nothing. I then spent a few hours on Google troubleshooting and was not able to find anything that I had not already tried. That’s when I decided to drop this problem onto the genius minds of the Tech-Guy forums for if they can’t so... Read more

Answer:Bluetooth Connection Problem. PLEASE HEL!?!?

Can you borrow another blue tooth device and try and see if it is a laptop or phone issue

So my bluetooth adapter should be here tomorrow, and i decided to make sure it was easy enough to hook up to windows on my macbook pro running windows 7 64 bit. it sees the headset, but says ' no drivers available'.

if i reboot the macbook into OS X, bluetooth works flawlessly and I can stream audio from the computer to the headset. its windows I'm having a problem with, and afraid I will have the same problem in Windows 10, which is what I am running on my desktop.

is there a Windows driver for the LG HBS-730 headset?

I want to stream game audio from the computer to the headset. Kind of sucks having to have Arkham City on super low volume, or wearing huge clunky headphones popular with WoW back in 2008.

Answer:LG HBS-730 bluetooth connection problem

Have you tried running the bluetooth adapter on a true Windows7 machine? Apps with drivers built for Win7 don't always work properly on Mac OS in boot camp or emulation mode.

Does the bluetooth adapter spec state that it's compatible with Mac OSX as well as Win7??

I have just got an X121e and it cannot find any bluetooth devices. I have made sure the bluetooth in the laptop is on and checked the settings to enable it to be found and connected to, yet it cannot find either of the two mobiles I have tried to pair with it. Both the phones can find the laptop however, but the bluetooth connection fails. I've downloaded and installed the latest bluetooth driver from the Lenovo website. What else can I do? Is the problem the laptop, bluetooth, windows 7 or what?

Answer:X121e bluetooth connection problem

Hi
 
 
You need to install following drivers first
 
1. Hotkey Drivers

2. Access Connection

After installation restart the system , Turn on the Wlan Radio Button , after windows is logged in Press Fn + F5 button to verify the Bluetooth and Wlan status .
 
Then Make your computer discoverable , so that it can be accessed by other devices
 
 
Hope This Helps

I have a Dell studio 15 with Windows 7 and Bluetooth. I am trying to install Manhattan 2800 Bluetooth bookshelf speakers. They sometimes play but disconnect intermittently. When Bluetooth disconnects I have to completely shut down and start over. (I haven't been able to fix it with just Restart.)

Here is a clue:
In "devices and Printers" it shows the laptop as a device:
Studio 15 [properties]

Selecting: [Bluetooth L2CAP Interface] -- properties/General
"Device status
Windows cannot verify the digital signature for the drivers required for this device. A recent hardware or software change might have installed a file that is signed incorrectly or damaged, or that might be malicious software from an unknown source. (Code 52)"

Selecting: [Bluetooth Hands free audio] -- properties
Driver= Broadcom Corp, 7/1/2009,6.2.0.9500
Digital Signer: Microsoft Windows Hardware compatibility Publisher.

The speaker documentation indicates Bluetooth v1.2, class 2 and A2DP protocol support

The Bluetooth icon on the bar at the bottom of the desktop disappears when the connection breaks while looking at properties.

This might be related -- I also have a Kensington Bluetooth trackball mouse that has intermittent problems with connecting at start-up. When the mouse doesn't work at start-up, I can usually make it work by removing its batteries and putting them back.

Advice will be appreciated,
Stan Hilliard

Answer:Intermittant problem with new bluetooth connection

You could consider getting a USB based Bluetooth adapter exclusively for your speakers. One that supports A2DP would be perfect.

Here are a few:

So, this is now driving me absolutely insane, and I couldn't have better chances for success (or so I think).
I am using a Lenovo Thinkpad W530 (Windows 8), and I have a Lumia 920 (Windows Phone 8). Seems pretty darn compatible, right?
Well my issue is simply "They will not connect or cooperate well"

Let me first say that through a blurry mashing of key presses and strange settings windows I have gotten the two to connect before for music control. But only twice.

The issue I have is apparently on both the phone and the computer-
When I tap connect on the phone, it stays connected for a few seconds, then disconnects.
When I try and connect on the laptop, it won't connect at all.
When I try and open the bluetooth device window, it stay open for a couple seconds and then closes.
Sometimes the music controller window appears, then disappears.

My phone doesn't appear to have anything wrong with it, I have restarted the phone completely with no effect.
The computer is under a month old with no driver issues or hardware issues, so it can't be that either.
What on earth am I doing wrong here? Why doesn't Windows (8) (and I hate saying this) have an efficient bluetooth connection service like Mac? connecting my phone to a Mac easier than easy. On windows it's nearly asking me to remove my hair strand by strand.

Thanks in advance.

This does not happen with laptop speakers. I tried uninstalling the bluetooth drivers as it was suggested, yet this did not solve the issue. Hope this issue can be solved Ken

Answer:Lenovo Yoga Bluetooth connection problem

I started having a similar issue when I installed the latest Wifi/BT driver.  Even after I rolled back to the older driver, something had changed. I no longer am able to use my BT Creative D100 speakers as it causes my BT mouse to act up (similar symptoms you are having; but my mouse never stabilized). In addition, my USB3 Ethernet adapter no longer automatically switches back to Wifi when I unplug it (I have to manually reconnect to my wireless router). I very much regret installing the new drivers.  Before that, my Yoga 13 was very solid/stable.

When using cortana on my band 2 it always comes up as turn on blue tooth or make sure its connected. I just recently decided to switch to the Microsoft platform because I could use cortana with my voice and band 2. I went through hell and back trying to convert my android info into the Microsoft eco system. I don't know why im so determined and stubborn to keep trying with Microsoft. Your products on paper seem so superior but in reality are sub par. The only reason I switched to a microsoft phone was the voice connectivity with cortana. What I found is that the band worked better with android as well as all the other apps that are cross functional. Why on earth does a Microsoft product have so many issues talking with its own brand. I think i'm returning the phone and possibly even the band, even after returning to the store 5 times and wasting so much of my time. I'm disappointed Microsoft, yet will probably still keep trying your products, why why why./

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

Also try:
Opening you Bios by hitting F2 right when you power the computer on

Check if these will make changes

Hi All, I have a concern regarding my Z400 idepad laptop. I bought it last February 16, 2014 and just today I noticed thst even after my laptops battery is charged, when I hover over my mouse to it, it would say 7 hours then after a couple of minutes, if I hover my mouse over to the battery icon again, it will already say 4 hours, then again after a few minutes if I would be checking on it would say 2 hours then again, after a few minutes it will now say 3 hours. It seems that it's not displaying the correct battery time. What can be causing this or what can I do to have the battery icon display the right number of hours that my laptop can be used? I know that brightness affects the battery usage coz my brightness is set to full though it's strange to have the battery icon display incorrect number of hours every after 5 minutes if i will check it. please leneove community, i would need all the help I can get and would appreciate your response to this. thank you! Oreo

My device is Lenovo Ideapad Z400, running on an i3 2.5Ghz, 4GB ram, nvidia gt635m and comes with Windows 8 preinstalled.I would like to apologize for my English because it's not my native language, but I will try my best to explain the matter clearly. I used AOMIE partition assistant before and partitioned my hard drive without knowing that it will mess up my recovery partitions ID. So, I wanted to restore my laptop to factory using Onekey Recovery but it says that my current system does not support this feature. I was so troubled and decided to do a clean install and formatted my drive. But upon installing through the DVD, it says that cannot install to GPT disk. I used Diskpart typed in list disk select disk 0  clean and convert to mbr I then installed it perfectly but after 1 day of use, my computer slows down. It is so slow even in opening the Windows Explorer. So I tried to search over the internet and found that I can use Rufus to boot on USB with GPT support. I did that, use diskpart to convert mbr to gpt and install, yet the install took almost 18 hours to complete. Then, it boots up, everything works but after an hour, it's too slow again. Now I don't know what to do. I can install Windows 8 on it but it takes forever to install which is not usual. It should be about 30 mins only for a normal install. I used HDtune, everything is ok.

Hi there guys, I updated my laptop to Windows 10 for like 2 months now. It works flawlessly except for one thing, I can't adjust the brightness of my monitor. My unit is Lenovo Z400 with intel core i3, intel hd 4000 graphic card with a dedicated gpu from nvidia (gt635m). Everytime I adjust the brightness, it turns down to 25%... So it means that my display will go from very bright to dim. All I need to do then is to restart my computer and as it boots, i will press the brightness key to bring it back to 100% brightness. It seems annoying sometimes becasue everytime I hit the brightness hardware button, this happens. So my question is, when are you going to update the drivers in your site or is there any way to make this work aside from using the Microsoft Basic Display adapter. Thanks in advance guys

Answer:Lenovo Z400 Brightness problem in Windows 10

Dear Genie,
 
Welcome in lenovo community,
 
Lenovo did not test or release the compatible windows 10 drivers for the Z400 laptop yet,
 
Please try to uninstall the graphics driver from the device manager >> restart the laptop >> right click the graphics driver in device manager >> Update Driver software >> Search automatically software.
 
Regards,
Joseph

This is my situation:When I bought my Z400 around a year ago, it had a windows 8 (Trial only) so I clean installed it with Windows 7 32-bit several times already since then. I recently got a Windows7 64 bit installation DVD  from a friend and I discovered that my 32-bit key will work for a 64 bit of the same OS. So I did the usual format (boot from dvd drive) but it's not reading the dvd and instead still boots from the harddrive, even though DVD drive is already 1st on boot sequence. I thought the dvd drive was not working, so I tried booting from my old Windows7 32 bit installation cd. It still boots. So I was thinking this is due to the installer being 64 bit? I tried both Legacy and UEFI options in BIOS out of curiousity but the 64 bit installer is still not being read and it still goes to boot from hard drive. I consider myself just moderately familiar with these technical stuff so I might not have known if there are other things I should have fixed/changed for this to work. Please help. Thanks in advance.

Answer:Z400 Windows7 Pro 64-bit DVD Clean Install Problem

Quickest way:You can always start an installation process when you're in your OS. So just select your drive and look for the setup. If it's really architecture-based, then you should see an appropriate message. Did you just burn the .iso to an empty DVD? I prefer just unpacking them on rewritable drives.  //Edit: If you're using UEFI, make sure to disable safe mode.

now, i know that everyone and their mom has had wifi problems on these computers, and i'm reading through a ton of threads on the matter. however, i figured i'd make my own since i didn't see my particular device represented. i have an ideapad z400 touch that i purchased back in august, and the wifi worked fine at first, which seems to not be the case with many other people. however, after a while, it began to degrade. i can connect - sometimes, and in certain spots. for instance, at my house, i can usually get wifi on the first floor, and i used to be able to find certain spots in my bedroom that acted as "hotspots," although it's gone downhill recently. sometimes if i reset the wireless adapter, i'll have internet for a hot second and then it's gone again. at school, i can connect in random classrooms but not in the hallways or library. obviously this is less than ideal. i have the intel centrino wireless-n 2230 adapter that's been the source of most of the problems, from what i can tell. what i want to know is, what steps should i take (if any) to try and improve my connection before i get on the phone and fight with customer service? i tried uninstalling the driver and restarting my computer to let it reinstall, but that didn't help.

Hi All,I have a Z400 touch. The keys "8", "I", "K", and "< ," are not working, even in safe mode. I strongly suspect it is due to dust, and I should clean under the keys. My question is; is it okay to pry those keys off the board directly with a screwdriver? Or would it get damaged? EDIT: I bought this machine in 2014, used it as my primary computer until around March 2017, after which I've been using a different laptop. I'm trying to rejuvenate my old laptop at the moment, so it could be used by someone else. Thanks.

I know that many of us here using the new z and p series ideapad have encountered this issue and some are still wrecking their brains, calling customer hotlines, searching the internet and trying all sorts of ways.

Sorry for some broken english cos im singaporean and it has become a habit PLEASE READ THROUGH ALL OF IT BEFORE DOING ANYTHING. and don't kpkb if it doesnt work because you didn't read it through. What i did when i realised i had this problem: 1.

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:z400 keyboard problem - multiple characters appear when certain keys are pressed.

hi JWPesante,
 
Can you try to boot the machine in Safe Mode and observe if the issue persists (this is to isolate any possible software that might be interferrng with the keyboard). If this works fine without the additional keys appearing, perform a clean boot and observe in normal mode.
 
If you encounter the same problem in Safe Mode then you most likely have a malfunctioning keyboard. I recommend you contact Lenovo and report the issue.

Recently I updated windows 10 from windows 8.1. I could adjust the screen brightness when I was running on windows 8.1, but I can't do it any more since I installed a driver update from Intel. So I searched solution and managed to reinstall the older driver again and it worked. However when I tried to run a game the FPS became ridiculously low, much lower than it was on windows 8.1.  I found that the other graphic card, Nvidia Geforce GT635m, which had its latest driver installed,  wasn't working properly, by disabling this graphic card in device manager and I got the same FPS.

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?!?!

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

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

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.

Purchased a Yoga 2 Pro a month ago.Noticed when connecting to a bluetooth 3.0 Wireless headset, the signal is relatively weak and intermittently interrupted when walking away from the computer. Wondering is this an isolated issue to a unit?Has anyone tried to connect Yoga 2 Pro with any bluetooth 3.0 Wireless headset? Is it working ok? Thx.

Answer:bluetooth connection to sound bar

Have you looked in playback devices to see if you need to set it default? Sometimes they don't automatically do it.Right click little speaker icon in tray and select Playbavk devices.

I am using XP home and am trying to connect my mobile to it using a Belkin F8T013 usb adaptor. It tells me that the cable is unplugged.I have used it without a problem in the past and the only thing I have changed is that I reinstalled XP in November. It may have nothing to do with it. Any suggestions appreciated.

Answer:Bluetooth connection unplugged

It might be that when you installed XP again you have not installed the bluetooth drivers. Do you have a seperate partition on your computer with a folder that has the programs in it that were on the main drive beforew you re did XP. On mine I have a folder in my "D" drive, its not my restore folder but just one where the programs are when I bought the computer three years ago. I just looked in it to find what I wanted then installed from there. Sorry I cannot be anymore help.

How do I connect my phone to my CPU or can I? The Bluetooth icon is lit up but my phone doesnt see it? Help!

Answer:Bluetooth connection to my phone?

You're going to have to give a few more details. What computer model do you have? What bluetooth software installed?What phone do you have? which device has the icon lit up? There's a process to pair devices. As long as you have bluetooth enable and visible to both devices there's you should be able to start process whereby you give permission from one device to pair with the other.

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

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??

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.

Toshiba Satellite A200 with Win HP Home SP3

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)

My Palm does not detect the lap top from 1 foot away, nor does the laptop detect the Palm
 

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

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).

I am able to send from my pc to my phone and tablet but the pc won't receive from either device. The phone and tablet have no problem going both directions with each other. The paired flag on the pc briefly flashes from paired to connected when I try to send, but then it immediately goes back to paired with an error message on the phone or tablet that the transfer failed.

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.

Completely different brand same issue.  I have an Aspire 5739G thats bluetooth capable.  I had to remove the device from my hardware list and reinstall the drivers for it to work.  Otherwise I received almost an identical error message.

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?
