Laptop Bluetooth Headphone Connection Issue

Question: Laptop Bluetooth Headphone Connection Issue

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

Hi.I've been lurking for a bit and have had most of my questions answered and issues solved bythis fine community. Thank you!My problem is that I can add my bt headphones (I've tried two different sets) in the "add device"option, but once I shut the bt device (headphones in my case) off and then turn them back onagain the sound continues to come from the tablet or stereo speakers (which ever I'm using atthe time) and the sound won't switch to the bt headphones automatically. I must manually go theSound settings in Control Panel options and select the bt headphone to use them again. As ofright now I've got a shortcut to the Sound options on my desktop. Now this isn't a deal breaker forme, but there's got to be an easier way! LOLS!Any suggestions?Thanks!And for the record I have no wifi issues and I've upgraded to 8 gigs of ram so I'm keeping this!!!

Answer:Yoga 13 Bluetooth Issues (Headphone Connection)

I haven't tried using a Bluetooth headset with Windows, but check: 1.  Right-click on the sound tray icon, select Playback devices.  Does it show a 2nd bluetooth headset device in addition to Speakers?  If so, left-click on it and try the "Set Default" dropown menu on the bottom to make it the Default device (or some other option that works better). 2.  http://support.microsoft.com/kb/933144 3.  http://www.computing.net/answers/hardware/making-bluetooth-headset-default-audio-device/87178.html

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.

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

Hello,

Before I continue, I'd like to say I did not upgrade to Windows 10. I bought my laptop not even a year-ago from Best Buy with Windows 10 already installed.

A little background, I've been using my "Skullcandy Ink'd Earbud with Mic" to talk with people on both Skype and Discord using my laptop. I've had these earbuds for more than three-months and I've never had an issue with them until today. Suddenly people can't hear me, but I can hear them while my sound remains perfectly intact. I thought maybe my earbuds were broken so I tried them with three different devices, but the Mic still worked just fine. Afterwards I updated my Sound Drivers thinking that might be the issue. Yet, even after updating the problem wasn't fixed. I'm really confused as to why I can't be heard through the Mic when I plug the earbuds into my laptop. Especially, when it was working not to long ago. Has anyone else experienced this? I really need help.P.S. I used the earbuds/mic three days ago an they worked fine. The next day the mic couldn't be picked up, also it only has one plug.

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

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

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 :-)

Answer:Laptop with combined mic/headphone jack, how to connect both mic & headphone ?

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

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.

I'm not sure this is the right place to post this but I'm just going to guess that it is.

I recently upgraded my desktop from 7 to 10. I used to connect my laptop (already using 10) to my desktop via Bluetooth and it allowed me to select the desktop pc's speakers as audio output, effectively mixing both computers' audio through my headphones attached to the desktop. This is no longer something my computers seem to do; literally all that has changed is that I upgraded the desktop OS and I would have assumed this is something windows10 can do but the Bluetooth menu is almost comically unhelpful.
It used to be relatively easy to do this in 7 but I am at a loss as to how to do this in 10. Is this functionality somehow not a part of Win10?

Newbie!
I am re-opening the thread on Bluetooth Mouse loss when coming out of power save as I cannot find any solution to this, or mention of the situation I have!
I have a Toshiba Sat Pro running Vista Home Premium 32bit with Toshiba Bluetooth Stack, Logitech 5000 mouse & keyboard.
This problem has only recently started & must be the result of a MS security download!
When I come out of power save I noticed that my Bluetooth icon was static, when I checked the Bluetooth settings I found it was showing Bluetooth as enabled, I then set it to disable & then re-enabled straight away and got my connection back, (this also affects the keyboard!)
Maybe this info will generate an idea regarding the problem.

Hi, I recently received (via an insurance claim) a HP gaming laptop. (Product number:T9P68EA#ABU) but am having the following issue: I can?t connect to my 5ghz wifi signal because the network adapter in my laptop is a b/g/n and so can only see 2.4ghz. (I think this is correct but more than happy to be told otherwise). (My work laptop which is generally a much lower spec machine can see the 5ghz wifi ssid with no problem). My internet speed (BT infinity) is fine - 60mbps on wireless a room away from the hub. The problem is that when I pair my laptop with my soundbar/woofa over bluetooth it slowly (over about 2-3 mins) reduces and ultimately kills the wifi signal. I'm struggling to find much on the web around upgrading the laptop to dual band capability so can anyone help with: a) Upgrading the laptop to dual band capabilityb) A fix for the Bluetooth killing wifi issue It seems crazy that a laptop this expensive and designed for gaming would a) not be upgradable for dual band wifi or b) not be able to cope with both bluetooth and wifi..? Please keep in mind I'm not a taking computers apart type :-) Many thanks in advance for any help. CH

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

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

Hi Guys,

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

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

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

Would appreciate some feedback on this.

Thanks
 

Answer:NFC or bluetooth sports headphone?

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

The only solution is to call up the Bluetooth manage devices setting and let it reconnect.  If I leave the manage bluetooth device page open on a second screen it helps, but clearly its not ideal!  I was running the Lenovo driver for Bluetooth but I've tried removing it and using the Generic Windows driver to see if that helps.  So far though the same happened after a short while. Any ideas? Many thanks and apologies if someone else has answered this query previously. Simon

Answer:Any advice to fix dropping bluetooth connection on ideapad flex 14 i3 laptop?

Install the bluetooth driver that came with the computer. Windows update probably updated the driver automatically. The new drivers are garbage on the Y2P. Once you install that driver, disable any Windows update pertaining to that driver.

  Hello Everyone,  The only Lenovo Ideapad to have both the wifi a/b/g/n + bluetooth built-in & the Nvidia 8600M GT graphics card is the Ideapad Y510-D2 available at www.jr.com To turn on the bluetooth, u need to click the fn+f5 key and a windows will popup, there u will see options to turn on/off the wifi and the bluetooth. thankskhinan 

Answer:Bluetooth Issue solved for the Ideapad Y510-D2 laptop

Hi,could you tell me what the bluetooth's part number is? I have a Y510 but without bluetooth and would love to add that card to my system so it is built in. Of course I could buy a USB dongle, but i'd rather have it built in. If it is not too much trouble I would really appreciate it if you could find out the device information like the part number or whatever would make it easier for a person to purchase it. I think t is a broadcom card but only you can tell me for sure.Thanks

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Hello
I'm currently experiencing an on-going issue with my laptop. I randomly lose connection to the internet multiple times a day, once this happens my laptop then fails to pick up any signals whatsoever. If I'm listening to something or watching a video, the sound will start to skip and crash when this happens and the cursor will also skip around the screen.
I know the issue is not the internet/modem because it's only started doing this recently, sometimes it happens after 5 minutes...other times it can go an hour without happening. I also have other devices connected to my internet so again, I know that the internet is fine. If I turn the laptop off and back on again, the internet is working fine, but can go off again at any time, so I know the issue is with the laptop, especially with it not picking up any connections at all when it happens, not just mine.
Anybody had any issues with this? I can't seem to find anything online that is of similar situation, it seems to be an issue with the laptop but is it a hardware issue or something that can be fixed in the system itself?
It's beginning to get really annoying having to constantly restart my laptop just to get the internet back on for maybe 20 minutes, especially when I have work to do.
Thank you.

I have a Dell Vostro 3700 32 bit running Windows 7 Professional and recently been having intermittent issues with its wifi connectivity.
Although the laptop's wifi scans and detects my wireless router (which is located in my downstairs room, whilst I am upstairs in my bedroom) showing signal strength as Fair, Good or Excellent at times it is unable to connect to it giving the error message "wireless was unable to connect to..."
If I take my laptop in the same room as where the wireless router is located then it connects instantly without issue, however, when I take it upstairs that is when it has issues connecting even though the network is visible in the wireless network connection list.

The Wireless router itself that is located downstairs works fine, as I do not have any such connectivity issues whilst in my bedroom with other devices like my phone and tablet which connect with excellent signal strength from the same room I have been having intermittent issues with my laptop.

Connecting via Ethernet has no issues whatsoever.

I have tried the following but to no avail.

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.

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.

Hi, I'm not sure if this is in the right place... this is a new account, and I don't know much about this site. My apologies if this is in the wrong category, it's just such a unique issue that I'm not sure where it would go. Anyway, I have an Acer Aspire V5 571p laptop. I've had it for about two years, and it's been working well enough for what I need. (I'm a college student) But recently, I wasn't able to connect to my wifi at home. Nothing that I know of changed within the router or modem, and nothing has changed within the laptop (except for the connection issue) It connects just fine everywhere else. The other two computers in the house (not mine) connect just fine, they're both slightly older desktops. The other laptop that I own isn't connecting as well.
I've done all of the following:
-reset the router
-reset the modem
-restarted my computer
-made sure all the information is correct for the wireless network
-completely reset my laptop to factory default
-bought a new router
-moved the router around the house to see if I was too far away.
 
I don't know what else to do, I've talked to four different tech support professionals, and none of their advice has worked. I'm coming here as a last ditch effort. Maybe someone else has had the same problem? I'm about to give up, but I need wifi at home for school, so I don't really have that option.
 
I appreciate any advice at all.

Do the machines detect the wireless network? or is it no longer visible?

I purchased my s10-3t about 2 weeks ago, and upgraded to windows 7 home premium about a week ago. A few days ago I started having the following problem: After some amount of time using the headphones after a typical boot up (could be 5 mins, half an hour, an hour, or more), the headphones will suddenly stop playing music or whatever, and instead produce really loud static noise. I am certain it is not the headphone's fault because they still work on other music devices and this problem happens with other headphones too. On a few occasions I could still hear the sound it's supposed to play but really really quietly (and still drowned out by the really loud static noise). Also, the volume of the static does not change if you change the volume level. When this problem happens, the speakers will work fine, except they will sometimes be "unsure" whether the headphones are plugged in. The speakers may or may not produce sound...sometimes they'll only produce sound if the headhpones are plugged in half way. I am not too concerned about the speakers - I don't use them anyway. I just want my headphones to work again. The only way I have found to correct this is to reboot my computer (which always works to fix the problem), but I don't want to have to keep doing this. Thanks

Question: Headphone Issue

I recently was forced to reformat a relatively new laptop.  After the reformat, my speakers work fine.  When I plug my headphones in, the computer recognizes them.  I can test them in control panel and hear the test in my headphones.  But that's it, I hear absolutely nothing else with my headphones.  Any ideas?

Answer:Headphone Issue

first, get yourself another working pair of headphones and connect to your computer and test. let us know how it goes.it is probably something wrong with your current headphones IF your computer's speakers and sound card are good and in working order.And what brand is the headphones you use and how old are they?
