Q: Bluetooth Connection - Bluetooth only connects from a cm away from laptop.

Hello!I have a Lenovo Yoga 720-15IKB laptop that I bought this summer from a Best Buy--I recently (for Christmas, huzzah) got a wireless headsest that I have been struggling to connect to my laptop. The headphones work perfectly fine with my phone (Samsung Galaxy, if that's at all relevant) I updated all my drivers and when that didn't work, I uninstalled and reinstalled them. I went through all my driver settings and made sure the laptop would not turn them off to save battery, I made sure that the laptop was set to Bluetooth: ON.I did manage to get the two devices paired, but when I attempted to connect them, they would only do so if the headphones were directly ontop of my laptop keyboard. This got me thinking, so I placed the headphones an inch or two away from my laptop, connected them, and then went to play a video with a decent volume and sure enough, I could hear that there was audio--but when I tried to actually put the headphones on, the audio cut out and the bluetooth disconnected.What could be the cause of this and how can I go about fixing it?

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.)

I have bought a Bluetooth speaker, turned on bluetooth on the laptop, found the speaker and connected. Plays fine. But within around 30 seconds the Wifi becomes disabled. Won't come back automatically again on until I turn bluetooth off.

Any ideas on this? I've just bought a small usb bluetooth adapter to try too and will update with my results with that too soon.

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

I'm not sure what's going on. I try to troubleshoot my network connection and it comes up with "unexpected error" and error code 0x80131700.Even if I tried to restore I get a failure, so something is deffinatly wrong. I search and tried everything I could with no resolve. Wifi is working but when I connect bluetooth, it blocks the connection for both sources. I disconnect the bluetooth and wifi works again. Funny thing I noticed is when I connect to the internet with wifi alone, the little monitor icon on the tray on the bottom never says connected, I feel all these things are related to the same problem, it's just a matter of finding out exactly where my issues are being generated from.

A:Bluetooth connects but no internet

I can't really help with your problem but I can give a few tips.

The network icon in the taskbar is no longer animated, we all miss that, at least you knew it was working when that flashed, it's something you'd have to take up with Microsoft

What are you using for Bluetooth, is it a dongle that you connect via USB ? Do you use a modem or a router for your Internet connection, if so can you tell us the make and model, that way we may be able to help by making sure you have the correct drivers installed.

Please post back with as much information about your connection and I'm sure one of the experts will be able to help you, and welcome to the forum.

Hi

My Bluetooth headset used to work fine with my laptop/Vistax32.

One day while I was using my Bluetooth headset with my laptop Asus U20a, ULV SU7300, 320GB, DDR2-4GB, the battery of the headset ran down and the headset disconnected automatically.

My problem is that now the headset connects, appears, and shows it is working properly. I can hear the beep sound when it is connected and regular hiss sound after it is connected. I can even see the green sound bars moving up & down in sound pop out menu when any music file is played, but I cannot hear any music, movie, Skype or any other program sound as I used to hear earlier (except a hiss sound seldom) although the same headset works fine with other computers. I had read somewhere that it is problematic if the battery of the headset runs out while using headset.

As my Bluetooth headset was working fine earlier so I know the whole procedure to correctly connect the headset with the laptop. I have tried a few trouble shooting ideas taken from web including re-installing drivers, Bluetooth devices etc but nothing worked.

Please help.

I posted this question to the Microsoft Community and was advised by a Microsoft Support person that I should post it here only because my computer is connected to a domain at my work (though my problem is completely unrelated to network connectivity or
domain issues). Below is my situation:
This problem is driving me insane. I was happily connecting my BT headphones (Motorola SF600) to my Win7 (enterprise) computer at work for over a year, but a few weeks ago, it stopped automatically using my headphones as a playback device when it
connects.

I would open Playback Devices from my speaker icon near the clock and I would see the BT headset as an option, but when I right-click it, the Connect choice was grayed out. I kept searching online for a solution and most of them had to do with unpairing
and re-pairing the headphones, which I have tried many, many times, to no avail.

I finally decided to try to uninstall and reinstall the Widcomm stack with the latest download on their website. When I got Widcomm reinstalled, I then tried to pair the headphones again. I had reset the headphones back to factory to erase all previous
connections that it had before. I was able to pair them successfully and they showed up in the BT Devices screen. When I double-click them, they show as connected to the computer. But when I choose Playback Devices from the speaker icon, this time there are
no BT devices at all, even though I have checked both "show disabled devices"... Read more

I have a bluetooth speaker that I have succesfully paired with and played through in the past yet am having issues with recently. They connect just fine, I get no error message, and they stay connected, but no audio comes out. If music is already playing in itunes, the music keeps playing but the audio cuts out immediately when the device is connected. Audio is restored instantly through the internal speakers when I disconnect the device. If I connect the speaker while the music is paused, the music will not play until the device is disconnected.If I connect the device while watching a youtube video, the video will immediately stop to buffer regardless. Video playback ensues immediately when the device is disconnected. Video wont play if the device is already connected, just like with Itunes.I've checked all volume levels twice. The speaker paired with a phone works perfectly. I've restarted my computer. I removed the speaker from the list of recognized devices and re-paired them. The charge is fine on both devices.It may be relevent to know that I had to replace my notebooks's hard drive recently as it stopped working completely but this job was done through an HP accredited service provider.

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.

My Dell Inspiron 7720 17R no longer connects to Jawbone Jambox external bluetooth speakers. Every connection attempt used to work without fail, even without having to re-pair them to my pc. I recently bought a pair of Damson Jet speakers but they won't connect either.

Note: All the above speakers connect to & work perfectly with my iPad2, so I have decided the problem
must be with Win7. No MS site I found has been any help. All I see is blame on speaker makers.
Also, I have run troubleshooters without success but they are bs anyway.

I have exhausted my abilities updating drivers, etc in Win7 64-bit. I have updated everything I can find, both MS & Intel. I have examined every property sheet I can find but don't see any issues. The Services seem to be entering properly. I have also tried manual-ticking each Service when adding the device.

I don't know when the Jambox stopped connecting as I was using it with my iPad2. If I knew when it stopped I could possibly restore to that point but no such luck.

I can add both speaker brands to my laptop devices but "Connection Failed" occurs after numerous tries to pair them. I think they are being added properly as the property sheets do fill with info somewhat.

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.

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.

Okay, so I don't really know if a solution is out there, but here is the situation I'm in. I only have one available USB port left which I am currently using for the Logitech Bluetooth dongle that came with my Logitech K750 solar keyboard. I would also like to attach my Samsung wep410 headset for Skype calls.

I have tried to discover the headset with and without Logitechs software installed with no luck. I then checked device manager, which does not show the dongle as a Bluetooth receiver/device. My assumption from that is that Logitech has it setup to only receive from their own devices.

Since I have no room for another dongle (and a hub isn't really ideal). Is there some way to force the dongle to detect normal Bluetooth devices? I've searched for a custom driver or other work around with no luck so far. This is on a computer running Windows 7 64bit.

My bluetooth functionality and even the icon disappeaered from my laptop.  The HP Service Assistant tried to do a network diagnostic and couldn't find a problem.  It said to go to the HP support site and load latest Bluetooth drivers.  The only drivers shown were for a Broadcom Bluetooth.  Not thinking I had a different Bluetoth system I downloaded and installed the Broadcom drivers.  Then I went to the device manager and saw that I did not have a Broadcom system, but an Intel system. (I should have done this earlier I know).  The device manager showed that the drivers were probably corrupted and it couldn't validate the digital signature for the drivers that were there. (Code 52) I revisited the device manager and looked at the properties tab of the drivers and the events tab under that.  It said there that Device USB/VID-8087&PID etc. needed further installation. Now I am confused and frustrated.  I don't want to try to instal this device if it is not the correct Intel device, but rather the Broadcom device. In other words, I don't want to screw things up even more. Can someone please tell me what to do?

I know that there are already posts about that.In my case my bluetooth works fine for bluetooth loudspeaker and external keyboard but as soon as I switch on my mouse it interferes with the other device. So when I turn on the mouse the speaker stops playing music and the external keyboard is off as well. When I go the settings trying to connect the bluetooth mouse I can see it but when I try to pair it either it disappears in the moment I am hovering over it (as if someone wanted to fool me actually) or when clicking on it successfully I get the message "This didn't work" or "Make sure your mouse is still discoverable".I tried many things already in the settings as well as in the device manager but nothing works.As a matter of fact, everytime when I switch on the bluetooth mouse it messes up with everything.Did anyone have this ever before and if so, could you solve it?Many thanks in advance for your answer and have a nice day!
