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.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

Hello,

I'm running Windows 8.1 on a Surface Pro 3.  I'm able to turn on Bluetooth and connect to some bluetooth devices.  I also have three "Bluetooth Smart", or BLE, devices.  I believe this stands for Bluetooth Low Energy.  Windows
8.1 is supposed to support it.  Typical BLE devices are sports accessories like heart rate monitors and bike speedometers.  My device manager shows that I have the Microsoft Bluetooth LE Enumerator driver and LE Generic Attribute Service installed
correctly.

When I try to connect to two of my BLE devices, I get a message that says, "That didn't work.  Try again and make sure your heart rate monitor is still discoverable.
The closest I've found to troubleshooting is this article: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3020785

I downloaded the hotfix but when I try to install it, it doesn't install and says that the fix does not apply to my computer.  I'm not sure this is my problem anyways, because the symptom "After you confirm the error message, all discoverable Bluetooth
devices under new Windows UI disappear." does not happen with me. I just get the error message with no ability to pair the device.

I'm wondering if anyone else has any ideas, solutions or experience with this problem.

Hi,

The initial pairing work they both identify each other and simultaneously send a confirmation passkey (6 digits) and I just press the OK button on both devices , mobile and PC (is it supposed to be that way ?).
After that the connection is initiated for a few seconds and then it's lost and the device appears as disconnected

Where is the problem ?

Hello!

I have searched through Bluetooth articles and couldn't find any relevant answers. I have a HMDX Jam bluetooth speaker and cannot connect it to my Sony Vaio W7 HP (2012) laptop via Bluetooth, although it connects with the line-in cable no prob (screenshot 1).

The speaker connected instantly to my Android tablet, so I know the speaker is functioning correctly.

The problem seems to be in 'pairing'. When I connected the speaker to my Asus tablet, it asked for the pairing code, which I entered in, and the combo were up and running.

When I attempt to connect the speaker to my laptop, it is recognized but I am not asked for the 'pairing code'. I also see that when I right-click on the bluetooth icon in the taskbar, that 'Allow a Device to Connect' is greyed out (screenshot 2). I presume that is why the pairing code dialogue box is not opening. As you can see from the screenshot, I have ticked the 'Allow Bluetooth devices to find this computer' tick-box.

When I double-click on the speaker icon in Devices, I get the message that the operation failed to initialize (screenshot 3).

Also, when I took screenshot 1, I firstly tried to send it via bluetooth from my phone to the laptop, it failed. The devices are 'paired but not connected' and after three attempts I gave up and got the cable out.

I have attempted to put as much relevant info here as I can think of. I would also like to add that I have virus troubles at the momernt and am in the process of posting... Read more

A:Bluetooth speakers: 'Allow a Device to Connect' greyed out

Hi again,

Well its been a couple of days since I posted the above. In the mean time I continued to search for help elsewhere, and in fact have been able to resolve the issue.

It turns out W7 is not very well adapted to Bluetooth. I found a few other similar posts, reading through the replies the concensus seemed to be that W7 is good for keyboards and mice but not much more. As I say I'm only going on what I've read as replies to similar problems.

The solution appears to be to download Bluetooth driver software from the following link, Bluetooth Software Download | Broadcom

I tried this and Bingo, works straight away. Have to say that it's not ideal, still haven't got the devices to pair, so it's a manual connection each time. But at least I can now use the speaker as intended. Edit: I was wrong, after a reboot I switched on Bluetooth and the speakers connected immediately. So I'm very happy!

Interestingly, on the Sony own Youtube video on how to connect your Bluetooth device to a Vaio laptop, the 'Allow a Device to Connect' command (when you right-click the Bluetooth icon in system tray) was greyed out as well, so it appears its not a settings issue as I suspected.

I think the real solution it to get in touch with Sony support and/ or HMDX Jam, which I'll do in the near future. At the moment I'm happy to have the speaker play via Bluetooth so I can get on with more pressing issues.

Thx, Chig

I spent many hours trying to figure out how to connect my two Windows 7 64-bit PCs to my Bluetooth stereo audio device (the Motorola S705) and so I thought I'd post my solution in case it helps anyone else.

SYMPTOMS:
A Bluetooth-capable Windows 7 PC can pair, but can?t connect, to a stereo audio device (like the Motorola S705 SoundPilot) via Bluetooth. The PC and the audio device may pair, but then Windows 7 provides the following error messages: ?Device driver software was not successfully installed. Bluetooth Peripheral Device. No driver found.?

It may be worth noting that I had no problem connecting my Bluetooth audio device to my cell phone or Windows XP PC. And the Windows 7 PC was able to connect to other Bluetooth devices, such as mice or keyboards.

CAUSE:
Even though the Windows 7 PC may have a working Bluetooth driver that connects to some Bluetooth devices (like mice or keyboards), the Windows 7 PC does not have the necessary A2DP & AVRCP (audio-capable) Bluetooth software & drivers installed. This software deficiency may occur, especially if the PC has been upgraded from an earlier version of Windows or the PC maker has simply not provided the latest driver update.

SOLUTION:
If the PC has an add-on Bluetooth adapter/dongle, download & install the latest driver directly from the Bluetooth dongle maker?s website, if possible.

If the PC has Bluetooth built-in, download & install the latest Bluetooth driver directly from the PC manufacturer,... Read more

I paired Microsoft Designer Bluetooth Keyboard and Mouse to my Windows 7 Professional x64 HP ZBook 14 which is connected to my company's corporate domain. Everything worked beautifully until they had to re-image my PC to resolve a disk encryption issue. That issue is resolved, but I have had bad luck getting my keyboard and mouse to pair and remain connected ever since. However, that's not even the problem now. After troubleshooting my Bluetooth issues by installing different driver versions, pairing and un-pairing my keyboard and mouse, changing settings in Bluetooth Support Service and more, I now have two Bluetooth Peripheral devices that always appear in Device Manager. I believe these are remnants of previously paired devices, but I can not get rid of them no matter what I try. These devices do not show up in Devices and Printers, they become Bluetooth Low Energy HID Devices when I install the computer manufacturer's drivers... As I typed this I thought of installing the Intel Bluetooth drivers I had previously installed to see what would happen... Ok that made things worse. Now there are three random Bluetooth Low Energy HID Devices and none of them are actual devices that are paired to the PC. And pairing the devices does not help.

Hi all,

i need your advise pls.

I have a Samsung series 7 laptop with 2 usb3 ports and 2 usb 2.0 ports. On the device manager i can see the installed driver Intel usb 3.0 root hub and intel usb 3.0 extensive host controller.

I also have purchased a Samsung 64GB sdxc card SDXC UHS (I), that according to manufacturer it can reach speeds "Transfer Speed: Up to 80 MB/s Read and up to 40 MB/s Write". I have enclosed this in a USPEED USB3 card reader, so that I use this as a 64Gb usb3 flash drive.

My problem is that everytime I connet this flash drive to my laptop's usb 3 ports, I get the message "This device can perform faster if you connect it to a superspeed usb 3 port" (!!) so I dont get it! What is wrong??

Actual writing speeds, when i copy large files (eg movie) this is done at 28 - 30 MB/s while speeds when copying many small files (folder with many smaller images) is done at 10 - 11.5 Mb/s.

Hi Dionisis , I have a couple of USB 3.0 flash sticks that give me the same message even though I have them in a USB 3.0 port.
In your case it may be due to the fact that an SDXC card isn't really a USB device, I'm not sure on this. someone else may have a better explanation.

You can run comparisons using the same files and copying in the 2.0 and the 3.0 ports to see any difference.

Everything is good until I put in a PCI envy24 sound card.
With sound card functioning properly, the intel pro100 has an exclamation mark.

One time I uninstalled both devices and rebooted. Windows found the drivers and it all came up working including the intel pro100. Then a reboot and back to the yellow exclamation.
I see alternative button for sound card but is grayed out.

So what would be a way to resolve this?

A:Device manager conflict, change settings grayed out

I'm no expert but the window above that is showing no conflicts is for the sound card. Might have been more helpful to post the same window for the device with the exclamation mark, to see what the conflict is exactly?

In the old days (like 80s) when there were resource conflicts it helped to install the sound card first, by listing it first in autoexec.bat or config.sys (forget which now)... these days they have free programs called something like "Starter Delayer" that let you program in a delay of certain devices so that everything doesn't try to install at once. I don't know if the old rule still holds to let the sound card load first (I think at that time b/c the IRQs etc it could use were limited, and so you wanted it to load first and take what it needed [but I'm sure they are better designed now]), then everything else would make due with what was left.

IAC it would appear your network card p100 and sound card are grabbing for similar addresses or something... maybe installing one of those starter delayer programs that lets you dictate the order things will install at boot would help. Try delaying the sound card to let the network card install first to see if that works.... if not, try the reverse.

I don't know, that's all I got.

other drivers. Certain drivers (such as PCI Express Root Port #3 - 9C14) when updating would also reinstall the Unknown USB Device, which I would then uninstall and keep working down the list. At the end of updating EVERYTHING I scanned for hardware changes

On the laptop I navigated from Control Panel and to Bluetooth Devices, then clicked Add Wireless Device, but no device is detected even though the Bluetooth on the cell phone was turned on. Device Manager indicates drivers for the Bluetooth device are installed correctly.

Hi all!

I had a bluetooth device on my laptop. On vista it worked properly. I just installed Windows 7 and i wanted to use my Bluetooth to connect to my phone. But sadly, it didn't work. So i tried to install drivers, but i can't find the device at all in devicemanager. Do you have any sugestions what to do? I don't remember the name of the device, so i can't search online for drivers..

So what drivers did you try to install, and is the bluetooth service running in services?

Hello Mr.Karan, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You should be able to use the "powercfg" command in the STEP FIVE section in the tutorial below to manually set this.

I recently purchased a used Dell XPS M1530 laptop. The last owner installed Win 7 Pro, 32-bit on it. I'm still in the process of checking everything out, but cannot get the Bluetooth device to work. I went to the Dell support site, entered the service tag number, and found that a device was installed when the unit was built. I verified that it is installed by finding it, and it is plugged in, and it is enabled in the BIOS, but I cannot seem to get it to turn on. I tried the Dell on-line diagnostic, but that couldn't find any device. I tried to download a driver from Broadcom, but that will not load because it cannot find the device. I read the owner's manual, on-line, and cannot see how to turn the device on, so, I'm stumped. Oh, and the device is NOT shown in the Device Manager.

A:Bluetooth device not found.

Don't have that phone, but just as a stab...

Does that phone have a place for you to enable devices?

Enable the PC connection instead of the headset, something along those lines?

hi,

is there a way to block a certain device from trying to send files via Bluetooth to my laptop running on windows 7?

A:How to block a bluetooth device?

There might be other ways but this method will surely work. Assuming that you've added that "certain" device to the Allowed List on your PC bluetooth;

Open Device Manager and expand Network Adaptors.
Right click on the Bluetooth driver and click Uninstall.
Once the bluetooth device is uninstalled, restart your computer and the driver will be reinstalled automatically.

This way, all the paired bluetooth devices will be removed from the list.

hi i have really dug in this forum and else where but didnt find anything applicable/worked.

i have a 6core pc with vista ultimate 64, i hate bluesoliel. i am trying to set up a generic headset with the windows bluetooth software, it will detect bluetooth peripheral device,

but cannot find drivers. i have tried a few different things. also the BSOD (blue screen of death) occurs when i use bluesoliel so im hoping windows wont. (plus why should i pay for a rubbish program.


if its just a matter of waiting for windows to fix the system then HURRY UP!

A:bluetooth peripheral device x64

oh an update on this.

NOONE HAS HELPED ME YET.

anyway this is the new problem. with a more techy friend coming over reminding me of the fact that generic usb dongles are problematic in themselves.

i bought an asus usb-bt21 today but it comes with its own set of problems.
i know heaps of people have this problem aswell anyway.

it is BSOD EVERYTIME!!! NOOOOO!!! i really like my pc on all the time this is contemptable and unacceptable BSOD all my minor work i like my google tabs kept past.

so anyway here is the problem. it "seems to work fine" (i havent got it working yet it will BSOD everytime) (what i mean is the drivers find it and everything will even connect. i think it has widcomm drivers the default asus driver. it will BSOD when just seeing the audio start. im too scared to try it again i will hope for your help)

here is the BSOD information anyone have a clue.
0x000000D1 (0x0000000000000000 0x0000000000000002 0x0000000000000008 0x0000000000000000)
