Bluetooth Headset and Vista

Q: Bluetooth Headset and Vista

Hey i'm new to the forum and wasn't sure whether to post this in Hardware or vista so anyway.

I am currently running Vista Home Premium on a brand new HP pavilion notebook with inbuilt bluetooth. (my avator)Vista and the pc have been great for what i need them for however i recently wished to connect my Motrorla H350 bluetooth headset to my pc for use with MSN messenger voice recognition and other software. The device paired well and is visible in the bluetooth devices window-
However now the problems start. I have had trouble getting the device to act as my computer microphone and speaker. this is due to the fact that it is not visible in my sound control panel under playback devices
or recording devices
I suspect it might be a driver problem and so here is a screen shot of the hardware and drivers related to bluetooth on my pc-

If anyone knows how to fix this problem it would be much appreciated.

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

I'm trying to make a stereo bluetooth headset work on my HP Vista32 Desktop.

I can pair it, then connect it, the device changes from speakers to the headset in my "Playback devices" window, but I get no audio through the headset. After about a minute, the playback devices changes back to my speakers
and the headset shuts off.

I've checked all of the drivers in Device Mgr...all are installed and working properly. I've also done
attempted updates on all of the involved drivers. I get messages saying the drivers are up to date in all cases.

It appears that the drivers (Blue radio & enumerator, headset in sound, video and game controllers) are installed
correctly, but the audio channel is not cut through.

Has anyone had in experience in this problem???

I have been researching this for awhile and still haven't come up with any solutions.

I have Vista Ultimate 64bit that lets me install the Microsoft Bluetooth Enumerator which is considered a 32bit driver from Broadcom. It sees my headset which is a Southwing SA505 and it even conects to it then immediately disconnects.

I have tried everyting I can think of what I need is a step by step guide to get this thing working.

Hello!

I recently installed the latest version of the Toshiba Bluetooth Stack (v9.10.32T) for one of my desired applications to properly function. However, connecting my Bluetooth headphones through Toshiba's bluetooth manager does not seem to support the media buttons on the headset. These include Play/Pause and seek buttons. Before the Bluetooth stack, when I used my default bluetooth driver for connection, these controls had worked fine.

Also, there does not seem to be a specific setting to fix this in the Toshiba Bluetooth Stack Options.
How would I go about getting these controls back?

Think this might be the best place for this.

A little annoyance here. I got a Moto H800 bluetooth headset I would like to use on Ventrilo while gaming and it just is not connecting. To many variables? Lets narrow it down

First, the basics:
System: WinXP-Pro SP3 All Updates
Bluetooth: USB ISSC Bluetooth EDR Adapter [ISSCEDRBTA]
Using XP Bluetooth Stack

Using the bluetooth devices dialog found in Control Panel I add the H800 by pressing "ADD", checking "my device is ready to be found", pressing "NEXT", waiting for windows to find the h800, clicking on it then pressing "NEXT" again, select "use passkey from my documentation" which of course is 0000, then press "NEXT" one last time.

At this point the h800 flashes violet and blue, usually indicating a connection. However it quickly turns to a flashing red. even though it is paired, it will not connect to the pc.

Wondering if I did something wrong?

I have been trying to get my Plantronics bluetooth headset working with Windows 7 without any luck. I want to use it with a 3CX softphone to use it with a Google Voice number.

At first I was able to add the headset to "Devices and Printers" but could not get any audio in or out of it for the softphone. A wired headset works ok. I searhed here and read a post that someone suggested BlueSoleil 6. I installed it and it seemed to pick up the headset, but that didn't work. I even installed BlueSoleil VOIP, but that thing is for Skype. While it was installed, I checked my "Devices and Printers" and it was not listed anymore. So, I uninstalled BlueSoleil. I was able to add the headset again. Still didn't work. I also read somewhere else to install the WIDCOMM Bluetooth Software. It could not detect my headset. The headset disapeared from the "Devices and Printers" window. Now I can't e ad the headset. When I try, my Brother Laser printer is listed to add. I already have had it installed for some time.

Hello,

I'm running win 8.1 and want to use a bluetooth headset. I'vs been searching for a day already for solutions in vain. Let me explain the scenario.
I have Dell Vostro 3460 notebook with Win 8.1 Core 64 bit on it. I have bluetooth enabled, I can connect to bluetooth devices (phone). My headset is a noname one but it still works on other machines (works with phone, works with Ubuntu).
In windows I can pair the headset but that's as far as it goes. I cannot select it as audio output device. I learned that for it to work I need to have an "audio sink" serviceat the bluetooth device. Unfortunately the only service my driver shows is "handsfree" (transleted, not sure if this is the proper english name).
I tried updating bluetooth drivers (various) but none of them made any difference.
Can anybody help me in getting this working?

Thanks,

It is possible that the pairing has been corrupt. I would consider deleting the current pairing and then try to repair it to the phone. If that does not work you can try to pair it to a different bluetooth if you had a spare or possibly a friends. If it connects then it is a good chance it is a defective bluetooth.

Welcome to our forum tjessop.

Do you have your usb 3.0 drivers installed?
If not your motherboard should of come with a CD that has the usb 3.0 drivers.
Are you plugged into Usb 2.0 or 3.0?
Does your Bose head set need drivers?
Did your head set come with a CD or DVD?

Boot your PC and then plug in your head phone and see if Windows 7 picks them up.
If not, boot your PC and then plug your head phone in and see if Windows 7 picks them up.

Right tick on your volume icon (lower right) and select (Play Back Devices). Do your head phones show up there?
That is about all I can think of.

Hello all, i got a situation right here. im using an old LG KS20 with its default OS, WinMo 6 and i happen to have 2 stereo (A2DP) devices which are Philips SHB7100 and Fujitsu SPK-796.

so i pair them to my older phone, LG KU990 Viewty and both devices work perfectly. Now i'm trying to connect either one of them to the KS20 without any luck. So the bluetooth headset and speakers are working right.

I discovered that there are "handsfree options" in bluetooth settings that has "authorization" "authentication" and "encryption". ticking or not ticking any of them did not give me what i need.

so basically the problem is: i can connect both devices as "hands-free" and it asks me for pairing code when i pair both of them, but i cannot connect the "high quality audio bluetooth". it says connection failed, obviously because it didn't ask me the pairing code, which is necessary in the first place.

so anyone here facing the same issue?

I have used plenty of bluetooth devices before with my ASUS U47A laptop's built-in bluetooth, including bluetooth headsets of varying kinds, it has always worked fine. 
 
I bought the Turtle Beach XP-510 headset for work/play. Followed instructions for installation and have even tried my own methods of pairing bluetooth on them. the strange thing is, for both internet access and the bluetooth headset to work simultaneously, I have to be connected directly to ethernet and have wi-fi turned off, because if i am connected via wifi, wi-fi stops working correctly (Windows Network Diagnostic blames my router), and the bluetooth connection is basically garbage quality sound, and i can tell its, for lack of a better discription, fighting between wifi and bluetooth signals.
 
I tested this by making laptop speakers and mic default in sound settings while XP-510's were still connected....everything cleared up, but as soon as i set the headset to default, signal dies.
 
Is this seriously just the band frequency? as i have tried this on 2 different routers, but not changed the frequencies, i just don't know. is there an easy way to fix this with a router that only has 2.4ghz, or is this a software/hardware issue in my computer? i haven't found any similar stories online, and if it was online, then Turtle Beach is keeping it under wraps

Hopefully someone will be able to help solve this, because I am stumped. I bought a rocketfish USB bluetooth adapter almost a year ago now. I also got a Motorola H15 bluetooth headset at the same time. Everything worked fine in XP and even when I had W7 RC, I used the headset as a mic for ventrillo, teamspeak, etc.

I recently built a new rig a month ago and have W7 ultimate x64 installed.
The USB adapter was installed fine by windows itself and I updated to the newest driver online. I turned the headset on and the adapter found the device. W7 is now asking for a driver in order for the headset to work though. I don't remember it ever doing that before in XP or W7 RC.

W7 can not find a driver for the headset, even if I tell it to look online. I don't think there is even a "driver" for this, because it works off the adapter by pairing it.

any thoughts?

A:Bluetooth headset issue

For Bluetooth headsets, you normally need too install the driver and software that comes with the headset. If windows update is having a tough time finding drivers, try visiting the manufacturer website. After you install, use the software to manage pairing, then configure the sound output properly and it should work fine.

Hey all, i was hoping someone can recommend me a headset. im kinda new and am not looking to spend much, But i find it hard to figure out which one will work for sure. Bluetooth, wired? I have been eying this NoiseHush N700m but then i compare it to the likes of say turtle beach options and well i feel like maybe i should just spend a bit more, as you can see i have been given descions that i simply cannot make on my own! lol. I am however interested in your take on headsets or which ones you use. Most of the affordable ones out their seem to be made of rather cheap materials, is their a premium options?

I have a bluetooth capable laptop (Asus 1000HE), and would like to get a bluetooth headset to use with Skype. Are bluetooth headsets running V1.2 OK for this, or do you need the newer V2.0 ones for good call quality?

I was looking at something cheap like the H500 which you can get off eBay for under $15...

I got a Sony SBH-60, Initially it got connected with the laptop using Bluetooth, but later days it wasnt getting connected with laptop hence i removed the device and try to pair again i couldnt discover the device at all.

My laptop runs on Windows 10 and bluetooth chip is from intel.

So tried possible remedies already like
1) Updating drivers
2) Uninstalling/ installing drivers
3) Changing Bluetooth support service (automatic)

Everything was done still the headphone was not discovered.

I tried to run Troubleshoot in Hardware and devices

I got this image
I tried to restart the system but still this troubleshooting was shown.

Kindly help. Thanks in advance.

I would like to use my laptop as a bluetooth headset for my Playstation TV since I am using my second monitor with an HDMI switcher as the screen. I can't connect to my laptop using bluetooth (it finds it but can never connect), so I was hoping for a way to make the laptop appear as a headset instead. WIDCOMM looked like it might work, but the install hangs with the message "Please plug in or turn on your Bluetooth device" and I'm not sure what to do.

Hi,
I've got a Motorola bluetooth headset that I use with my cell phone and laptop. I'd also like my son to be able to use it with his Xbox 360. I've seen that they are now selling Xbox bluetooth headsets so I know that the Xbox 360 is bluetooth compatible.

However, I can't find in the 360 manual or on the Microsoft website any instructions on how to get it to connect for the first time.

Has anyone done this yet and could you share the instructions?

Thanks in advance!
 

A:Bluetooth headset and XBox 360

Those headsets include an adapter to connect to the Xbox. No adapter, no Bluetooth.
