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.

tl;dr Download from the support center, Ralink (Meadiatek) drivers doesnt install on HP ProBook 450 G1 Hello, recently the business I work for bought a HP ProBook 450 G1 (i5-4200m,8gb,750gb,amd card with 1gb version) and I have to set it up. They also bought Windows 8. So I installed windows 8 on the computer but when I go to network adapters, there? only bluetooth and wired connection adapters. So I downloaded the Ralink 802.11 b/g/n Wireless LAN Adapter Driver from here and when I try to install it, the installer opens up for a second and then closes down, at first I thought maybe the instalaltion is in the background, but that wasn't the case. Then I tried to download Mediatek 802.11b/g/n (1x1) and Bluetooth 4.0 Combo drivers from the net here, they installed and show up in the Programms and Features, but the WiFi adapter did not appear in the adapters menu. neither does it appear in the Device Manager. Also no driver disc came with the purchase. Can someone please help me? The only way to connect the PC to the internet is to use WiFi right now. 










Solved!

Well that was misleading... Everywhere I looked on the internet, it said that HP Probook 450 G1 has a Mediatek 802.11b/g/n adapter, but it turned out when I checked the BIOS it said that this laptop has an Atheros WiFi adapter, so I downloaded the driver from them and now the wifi works.

Hello.

I have an issue with my Medialink USB Bluetooth Adapter - Version 4.0 Class 2 Smart Ready Adapter (Model No. MUA-BA3). Let me explain...

Okay, I have setup my Medialink USB Bluetooth Adapter with the drivers for my Windows 7 operating system. Now, when I plug this USB Bluetooth adapter into my USB port connector on my desktop computer, it automatically lights up with a blue light on the Medialink USB Bluetooth Adapter itself and on my Windows 7 system tray/notification area I get the Bluetooth icon displayed as ?ON?. Then I go ahead and pair the computer and my device(s) (example: a Smartphone) to connect which they do successfully. When I am done using the Bluetooth technology, I disconnect the Bluetooth connection from each device and then instead of leaving your USB Bluetooth adapter ON with my Windows 7 operating system, I go into my Windows 7 system tray/notification area and select ?Turn Adapter OFF?. I then get the red Bluetooth icon in my Windows 7 system tray/notification area demonstrating that my Bluetooth is indeed OFF and the Bluetooth blue light on the Medialink USB Bluetooth Adapter goes OFF or is not lit any longer. Okay, so far so good ? everything is normal.

However, when I shutdown my Windows 7 operating system and then restart the computer at some later point, I notice that the Medialink USB Bluetooth Adapter still shows on my Windows 7 system tray/notification area as OFF (okay ? normal); BUT THE BLUE LIGHT ON THE MEDIA LINK USB BLUETOOTH AD...

I used to use my Turtle Beach PX5s with my laptop. They used to work just fine. I reconnected them to the PS3 one day and after going back to the PC the microphone no longer registers sound on the PC.

Everything is as it should be. All drivers have been reinstalled multiple times, all settings have been checked and double checked. Nothing stands out as abnormal except the sound meter next to the bluetooth headset under audio devices (where it is set as default device) does not register any noise.

The headset is working fine with the ps3 and my phone and I can hear my voice through the headset as I talk, but the PC cannot hear me at all.

I have been through Turtle Beach tech support and Targus tech support and have gotten nowhere. It's been incredibly aggravating and I hope some one here might be able to shed some light.

hi there,

my USB external speaker and USB bluetooth adapter (for my plantronics headset) is not working. I believe this had to do me removing a critical program (from add/remove programs) about half a year ago - i can no longer do a system recovery to retrieve the program. I'm currently operating on windows 7x64-bit. all drivers are up to date and working. the usb drives work fine - i've tried testing each slot by connecting my external mouse and all seems functional. it's only when i plug in the external speaker or usb bluetooth adapter that things go wrong - see screen shots below. my internal speaker and internal mic work perfectly fine. it appears to be only an issue with usb audio-related devices. these devices work with other systems and computers, so i know that it is not the device itself. i've tried uninstalling and reinstalling conexant audio, but that did not work. i've gone into the device manager and all looks ok there. i've disabled and renabled, updated all drivers, and still nothing....any help would be much appreciated.

Laptop: Lenovo T410s

thanks so much for any help or guidance you can provide.

A:USB Speaker & USB Bluetooth Adapter Not Working

Connect the devices, one at a time. Then go to the Device Manager and display the USB section. There will probably be an Unknown device shown. If there is, RIGHT click on the entry to highlight it and then LEFT click "Uninstall" (do not uninstall any drivers). Disconnect the device from the PC after the Uninstall. Then do the same thing for the other USB device. Restart the PC and then connect one of the devices and Windows should detect it as "new hardware" and install it. If not, run sfc /scannow (run it 3 times) and see if it finds any problem from whatever you may have deleted.

I never changed the default network card ever since I bought the pc, and I always used a dongle to use Bluetooth, but now I recently found out that my networkcard also has bluetooth. So, to my understanding, I shouldn't need the dongle at all.Although here's the thing. Ever since I bought it I have found no option to turn the bluetooth on, other than the dongle settings of course. And whats even weider (at least to me), that in the adapter settings it is called 'Ethernet 2', as shown here:The second line says: 'Networkcable not connected' Is this how it should be? My device manager shows the PAN Network Adapter, and it says it has drivers installed, so I don't know what I would be doing wrong. Laptop is out of warranty, so sending it to HP is not really an option.

As the title would suggest, I have a Rocketfish Micro-usb bluetooth adapter. I'm having real issues with my Windows 7 Ultimate x64.

My Problems are:

- The Bluetooth device installs correctly but cannot find any devices
- Searching will go on forever and I have tried over 12 different bluetooth devices
- When opening up "Show Bluetooth Devices" windows, it never loads
- It works fine on the Windows Developer Preview (minor bugs)

Things I have already tried:

- Updating the drivers
- Updating Windows 7
- Running the drivers in compatibility mode for all other versions
- Searched Google

I'm out of ideas and am in serious need of help. I'm trying to mainly use the adapter with the Turtlebeach Delta Force Headset, but it will not read any other devices as well as the headset.

Here is the image of the "Show Bluetooth Devices" Menu. This is after loading for about an hour or so.

I want to play music on my mobile phone but listen the sound on my E5450 laptop, using bluetooth (not other methods)
I have paired the device with the laptop, but I see no options in Windows about what bluetooth services is Windows offering to paired devices.
The laptop is using latest Intel bluetooth driver for the device that appears in device manager with name "Intel Wireless Bluetooth", with these hardware ids:
USB\VID_8087&PID_0A2B&REV_0001
There is a "bluetooth headset service" on windows with start type manual, I've started hoping it would allow phone to "see" the laptop as a bluetooth audio headset but no change.
I remember old Windows had a "Services" tab sheet on the bluetooth settings but on my W10 is gone.
Is this gone for good from Windows 10, or only on my laptop? Using latest released windows version.

I?m not sure where to find that info, but streaming audio from your phone to the PC would require that the PC act as an A2DP target, and to my knowledge Windows only acts as an A2DP source.

Hiii.

I have recently purchased a Bluetooth dongle (it's tiny), because I lost the 1st one.

When I bought first dongle, I had to spend hours and hours installing, uninstalling drivers etc.. because there was no driver CD and I had to search myself. Also the dongle didn't have any brand mark on it or the packaging. I tried BlueSoleil and have never experienced a worst piece of software in my entire life, Broadcom drivers wouldn't work either. But somehow, I managed to get it working and got it connected with my Nokia mobile (6233) and everything was great.

Then I lost it, I bought this new adapter. It isn't the same and again I'm going through the same trouble. I've tried BlueSoleil but it's sh#t like always, doesn't even work properly, Broadcom won't find the dongle. The bluetooth on the notifications pops up thought but it won't find or recieve from my phone. Searched for drivers with no luck. The brand name was RTCC or something but I can't remember specifically cuz someone threw the packagaing away (again without CD).

I have no idea what I did to fix the first one and I can't get this stupid thing to work!!!! I'm using Windows 7, Windows Update won't find drivers for it also..

Any ideas? Thanks!

Bluetooth is the easiest (read "least hassle") way of transferring data to your netbook from an Android device. I got a "nano" Bluetooth adapter for my Toshiba laptop, it worked nicely. It sticks out approximately 3/8" (7mm) and was under 10 USD.

If you don't want to go that route, then you can use sync software. I use My Phone Explorer (free). Once you have it set up, you can access your Android device as if it were a networked PC on your home LAN.

Another alternative is to use a USB cable. Set your Android device to Disk Drive under Connect to PC. I'm not 100% sure, but I think that this allows access to data on the SD Card only. Not a problem on my phone as it saves pictures and videos to a folder on the SD Card.

In neither instance does the Sony appear. Suggestion? Mark

Does anyone knows whether the Acer Aspire 5253-BZ661 laptop has a built-in bluetooth device in it? Reading from articles on the internet, I don't see any information regarding this laptop's particular model having a built-in bluetooth device in it but has a bluetooth driver and suite ready for the download at the acer main site.

A:Bluetooth driver for Acer Aspire 5253-BZ661 but no bluetooth hardware?

May be a option on some models.

Hello Every once in a while, my Microsoft bluetooth mouse stops working. Then I check the bluetooth device in the Windows device manager and it is no longer there, as if my laptop didn't have bluetooth at all. The only work-arround is to reboot. Then it works for a while, can be days or sometimes maybe even weeks before it stops working again. I found this article https://support.lenovo.com/ca/en/solutions/ht506394 which seems to describe my problem. Unfortunately, the proposed solution doesn't work as my driver is already up to date (20.100.0.4) Any idea?

installed intel ac-3160 dual band + blue tooth in a Sony notebook system wont allow blue tooth to start.
also there is no interface available to connect any hardware to it, i know it has something to do with some Vaio software on the system.
it allows me to use dual band mode and it shows that blue tooth is present but disables it claiming interference with 2.4 GHz band. 
now i have had blue tooth dongles installed working while using 2.4 GHz band before with no issues, so i don't get the issue now.
any input would be appreciated. 
 
thankx Karl K

Hey guys,

So i spent the entire day trying to figure out why my Bluetooth installed fine but after one restart it disappeared and it wouldn't come back. I finally figured it out that the FN+F2 (wireless/bluetooth switches) is what enables/disabled it HAHAHAHAHA.

default (after startup): WiFi on / BT off
first time: WiFi on / BT ON yay~!
second time: WiFi off / BT on
third time: WiFi off / BT off

and repeat.

I hope this helps people with their bluetooth issues =)

Windows 8 was able to install all my Function Keys so I'm going to assume this will be the case for others. Good luck

HP Spectre bluetooth connectivity with my Microsoft ArcTouch mouse constant drops. Turning bluetooth on and off seems to be the only way to reconnect the mouse. The mouse works with other bluetooth enabled laptops, tablets and desktops. Please help.

I just got a Palm Centro and conveniently (not really) the usb cable to connect to my phone to computer isn't compatable with 64 bit systems. So I was informed that I should simply buy a Bluetooth adapter to "hotsync" my phone..blah blah blah.

after buying the bluetooth I realized that my computer was not recognizing the new hardware b/c IT isn't compatable with,..you guessed it...64 bit os...and then they say I have to buy another one. Now, I guess this seems like more complaining than a question, but my level of frustration is immense, so I apologize, but does anyone know a way to fix this issue short of the obvious(buying another flippin adapter)? I mean, is Kensington so cheap and lazy that they cannot get their "experts" to write a patch or update for patrons with a 64 bit system?
 

A:Bluetooth adapter blues

A cable wouldn't have anything to do with 64-bit compatibility. That lies with the device, not the connection method. If the phone doesn't support connectivity with a 64-bit OS, a Bluetooth adapter isn't going to make a difference.

Ugh. Okay. Soooo. A little back story before we start.

Last computer I had was a Dell Inspiron laptop. I was gifted a wireless pen tablet for Christmas and bought a Bluetooth adapter to use in my computer so I could actually use it. Apparently I bought the stupid adapter (Blue Soleil- lots of problems with the drivers) so the simple fix was to delete the company's drivers and just use Vista Home Basic's built in Bluetooth driver. That worked fine, until I bought a new computer the other day.

It's an HP running Vista's Home Premium. I plugged in my adapter and at -first- it read it and the little Bluetooth icon popped up in the tray by the clock and it said it was installing the drivers. I figured this was just Vista's built-in driver, and that's what I needed for my wireless to work. I didn't install ANY of the Blue Soleil drivers. I planned on it ready to work--

Wrong.

After it showed up briefly and "installed", whenever I plug in the USB device, it doesn't find it. Usually a little blue light shows up on my USB adapter saying that it's ready to find devices (it has no discovery button or anything, just always kind of... worked) but when I plug it into any of the USB ports on my laptop, nothing. I can't even find the driver Vista installed and it's not even powering on so I can't hook up my Bluetooth device.

Is there anyway I can at least FIND the driver for the adapter (I checked hardware and device... Read more
