Passcode of device when connecting via Bluetooth,

I wanted to connect my laptop (sony with windows 8) with tablet GPS (lieca CS25with windows7) but the system requires the passcode (attached).


I couldn?t figure out how to find out the Passcode of the GPS (lieca CS25with windows7)? Can this be found by windows 7?

Thank you

Best

Jamal

A:Passcode of device when connecting via Bluetooth,

If you read the link it mentions:Double click the device you want to connect to and wait while a connection is established. You will be presented with a passcode that you must either verify as being the same on the other device (most likely if you are connecting to another computer), or enter the code on the device you are connecting to (most likely in case you are connecting to a phone).

The directions look easy enough but I personally haven't had a chance to work with Bluetooth so I can't test this out myself.

I have a Belkin USB Bluetooth adapter that uses the Broadcom's WIDCOMM manager, and I've installed it in Windows 7. I have bluetooth a device with has no visual output nor alphanumeric input, so I've added it with no pairing.

I have it connected to COM3, but when I try to send/receive information I get a warning that a bluetooth device is trying to connect, and asks me for a pairing key

How can I really have the device connect to a serial port, without having to pair it every time I want to transmit data?

I couldn't figure out which sub forum to put this in so I just picked the one that is for my PC's OS. What I'm wondering is if it's possible to connect my PC's wireless adapter to a Bluetooth device, such as a speaker, and use it to play the computers audio through. I recently had my speakers stop working and had to throw them away. Since then I've been using ear buds to hear but I'd really like to have a speaker.

Hello! I recently bought a Microsoft Sculpt Comfort Mouse. It's pretty good so far, but I've been annoyed by the fact that it's Bluetooth. This might make it handy when connecting to a laptop but that also means that I have to pair the device again every time I use it in another computer.

I am looking for a way to connect the mouse without going to settings then unpairing and pairing again the device. Could all that be done by a shortcut in the desktop (so I could assign it to one of my keyboard's macros)? Or just a faster way to connect again (through some type of utility perhaps).

Android is a good example of this. I put the mouse in pairing mode and the click on the mouse in the Bluetooth settings. No unpairing and pairing again. Really fast as well.

Thanks in advance!

A:Dell XPS 13 (9350) Bluetooth Connecting Problem

You may want to keep in mind the Wi-Fi can have an effect on Bluetooth.  We also need some basic info about your system.  If yo use the rich formatting for a reply you can attach snipping tool pictures.
In Device Manager you should show your Bluetooth device plus a couple of Microsoft entries.  If your headsets/speakers also show that is good.  No Unknown devices anywhere in Device Manager or yellow triangles on any Bluetooth components?
Do you know the Bluetooth version of your devices?
You seem to imply pairing the device does not work well.  Can you tell us what is happening and what tones you might be getting from the devices?  Are you able to get them in the pairing mode and your see on the Settings-Devices-Bluetooth page the system loading the drivers?
When you try to connect, do you just power on your devices and not put them in the pairing mode?  Any option showing up for connecting them.  The first time you connect, you may have to allow it but devices seem to operate differently and may not need certain steps.
What Wi-Fi card do you have?

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.

A:Problem: Have to restart programs when connecting bluetooth Headphone.

Did you ever find an answer? I just found this post and I'm having the exact issue. And agreed; very annoying.

Hello, I've been trying to use my PS3 Bluetooth headset as usual on my PC for ventrilo, but ever since I've had a probelm with my PC Ram where I had to remove them and place them in different slot, it doesn't seam to work anymore. I have a window 7 64-bit and I'm using a Bluetooth adapter on my pc (dongle) to be able to have a bluetooth device section.
 
Here are all the step I took:
 
1) I've tried to open my mic like usual, it registered the mic like usual. But the "B" icon never turned green like normal to say that the headset device was connected and the headset in the device list never got the green check mark on it. Still, the computer did as if sound should have come to a headset device because the speaker didn't play audio anymore. After multiple test, I decided to start from a blank sleeve.
 
2) I've deleted the program for the driver , Bluetooth Software download (broadcom), unplugged my adapter and restarted the  whole thing. Where I've replaced back my adapter in the only port that seam to be enable for Bluetooth adapter for the software to detect it, install the driver (take a good 10 minute) and finish installation. After doing all this, I did the usual add a device to the bluetooth section. Did the normal registery of my mic.

Dear tanjib2,
The Blue Tooth device drivers appear corrupted. Try to uninstall and it is always safe and prudent to download the drivers from the Dell site. For that you have to register( I don't know why they are making it tough). Kindly visit this site to register and then to download the drivers for your model of Dell.

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...

Other devices all seem to be working fine - USB devices plugged in are being recognized and work properly. Only BT seems to be broken.

Hello frank fw:              What is your computers operating system windows ? Some where on your computer you should find Windows Help and Support open it. Then in its  search box just type in adding blue tooth devises.  Go down the list and click on. Add a Bluetooth enabled device to your computer.            Next window dirrections are given.  You are welcome since you did not provide your computers operating system . I can't give you the directions on finding  Windows Help and Support on your computer. frrw

Hi, all.
I have a desktop and a Compaq laptop both using Windows XP Pro SP3. I would like to connect them both using Bluetooth so I can transfer files between them. I don't care about sharing the internet connection. I hoped to buy an Ethernet crossover cable but I couldn't find any, and I've been using a USB stick to very, very slowly transfer files across.
I turned discovery on on both the PCs and used both to try and find the other to "add a device", and they do; and also turned "allow Bluetooth devices to connect" on, as well, but they are unable to connect for whatever reason. I tried using a custom key and letting it choose one for me but neither worked. As clever as Microsoft is it doesn't tell me what the actual problem is. All it says is there isn't any more information about it. I also don't want to not use a passkey.
Again I don't need to share the internet connection, merely transfer files between them. I also tried with a small test file and it saw the other PC but then chose to fail. Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks.

A:Connecting 2 PCs Using Bluetooth

if file or print sharing is enabled on both its  a matter of just selecting the
computer on the network.

Hi  As an adminstrator, in a Command Prompt Window, typegetmacThis will list MAC addresses for those items that are present, and may not be connected.A good number would be 3,1 x Ethernet1 x Wi-Fi1 x Bluetoothand then typeipconfigand in the long list look for named devices have a matching MAC address.Along with Device manager this is a way to determine the number of devices. If in doubt please ask.

A:Bluetooth Device won't appear in Device Manager

Are you saying you put your device in discovery mode but you can't detect it from Win 7? Do you have any other BT devices that are detected?

Hi there, I'm having problems connecting to my bluetooth headphones.  My computer will pair with them and connect the first time no problem, but afterwards it won't recognize that it's available to Connect (it won't connect automatically and it won't show a "Connect" button).  The only way to get it to work is to Remove Device, adn re-pair it, which is very annoying. Any help would be appreciated! I've tried re-intalling the drivers with no luck, and checking for Windows updates but I'm all up to date. I have an Aspire TC-603 desktop. Thanks!
