How do I activate Bluetooth in Windows 8?

Q: How do I activate Bluetooth in Windows 8?

I have an Envy 4-1130us ultrabook that is really nice, but I can't get my bluetooth to work. It did work for about a week, but somehow is now failing. I attempted to go into pc settings > wireless and turn the bluetooth to "on" but it is not allowing this. I have also tried using f12, but it is only activating the wi fi. FYI - I was using the bluetooth for a wireless mouse. Anything else I might try?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Type Bluetooth into the Search field.Figure 20: Searching for BluetoothClick Change Bluetooth settings from the list of results.Click the box next to Show the Bluetooth icon in the notification area , and then click Apply .Figure 21: Showing the Bluetooth icon in the notification areaThe Bluetooth icon displays in the notification area in the lower right.Double-click the Bluetooth icon to access common tasks for Bluetooth devices.Figure 22: Bluetooth menuTips for finding a Bluetooth deviceIf Windows cannot detect the Bluetooth device, check the following items:Make sure that wireless communication is turned on (Notebook computers only) Make sure that Bluetooth is turned on and set to be discoverable on the device. When a device is set to be discoverable, it uses radio signals to broadcast its location to other Bluetooth devices and computers.A device such as a wireless mouse or a keyboard, might have a button on it that you need to push.A device such as a Bluetooth mobile phone, might have a setting in the menu that you need to select to turn on Bluetooth so the device can be discovered.NOTE:If you do not know how to set your device to be discoverable, check the information that came with your device or go to the manufacturer?s website.A device such as computer might need to have the Discovery setting turned on.

Make sure the device is turned on, is not low on battery power, and is not in sleep mode.Make sure the device is within wireless range of your computer, usually within six to nine feet. If you are not sure if the device is in range, move it closer to your computer, or put the device and computer in the same room.Make sure there are no other devices interfering with the wireless device, such as microwave ovens, cordless phones, or other wireless devices.If your computer uses an external Bluetooth adapter, make sure the adapter is attached and installed, and is working correctly.If Bluetooth is integrated in your computer, especially a notebook computer, make sure the Bluetooth radio transmitter is turned on because many notebook computers have a button to turn the transmitter on and off. If you are not sure how to turn it on, check the information that came with your computer or go to the manufacturer's website. If you have any more questions please let me know. THX

Why does it take so long? Can't i just keep it in whatever mode it's in at startup so theres no delay?

Recently I received a new set of wireless, bluetooth headphones as a Father's day gift. I have successfully paired the headphones to my smartphone and my laptop, Acer Aspire running Windows 8.1. I have no problems using the phones with the smartphone, but the laptop is my problem. The "Control Panel" under "Sound" shows the phones, but they are designated as "Disconnected". Nothing I do can activate the device, and no help from MS and their literature shows me nothing beyond what I've already done. Under "Devices and Printers", the phones are shown as recognized but still they don't work. I don't know if I just have not found the correct toggle to turn on the phones or if it's something else. I'd hate to return the headphones since they were a gift from the "kids", but if these cannot be useful, I have no choice. Please help!!!!

Right click the Volume icon (in the Notification Area) - Playback devices. Are the headphones listed? If so, you can probably make them the default and, hopefully, that's all it will take.

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.

Hi Everyone,  I just swapped out the hard drive in my ThinkPad T510 and replaced it with a zippy SSD.I installed a fresh copy of Windows 10 thinking I have my Windows 7 COA (clearly visible under my battery).But I was unable to activate Windows 10. I called Microsoft and they said yes, I have a geniune copy of Windows 7 BUT that the OEM (Lenovo) was blocking the activation. I called Lenovo and they said it's a Microsoft issue. I called Lenovo again and they said I needed to pay $45 for recovery discs because my "real" Windows 7 code was secreted in a system board, and once I retrieved that, I would have to install Windows 7 on my new SSD, then upgrade to Windows 10 and the activation would take. Um, really? Isn't there an easier (and cheaper) way to accomplish this? Again, my Windows 7 COA is clearly visible under my battery but it didn't work. What am I doing wrong? And can anyone out there make it right? Thank you so much!

A:How do I activate windows on a Dell laptop which came with pre installed genuine windows 8.

It is possible  you have a pirated copy of Windows. Computers with a factory installed legal copy of Windows do not need to be activated. The activation code for Windows 8 is located in the system BIOS and is read automatically. You can check the code by using one of the utilities that will extract it from the BIOS. If there is a code, contact Microsoft and ask them if the code is valid.

Hi everyone, I'm new here. I have a bit of a problem with my mothers laptop and I couldn't find other cases that matched mine.
We bought her a new laptop: Toshiba KIRA, pre installed with windows 8. Due to her work requirements, we needed windows 7 professional. So I wiped it clean and installed windows 7 on it and all was running well. I used a copy of a windows 7 disk I bought 4 years ago with no product key or information, just the disk. 30 days later, of course, the time has come to activate windows. So when I log into the computer and the message appears and I click 'buy a new product key', redirected to Microsoft page and downloaded the LegitCheck for validation. After this process, an error came up saying that product keys are no longer available for purchase and that I couldn't activate. I contacted Microsoft support through live chat and she checked out the Product ID and it was registered as an OEM copy and that I'd need to contact the manufacturer.
I don't know a lot about OEM or whatever, but I do know it's a once of thing, tied to the one PC forever. I have concluded that I would need to buy a whole new OEM copy of windows 7 and wipe the other one off. Finally, I come to my question: If I buy the said product and it comes with the OEM product key, am I able to enter that key under system properties where it says the product ID and 'Change product key', OR do I have to wipe the computer completely and reinstall it, entering the product key when prompted?

My problem is this: We had error message 0x800700c1 on the grandkids computer. Called the experts to fix it, they couldn?t do it. We were running Windows XP Home 2002 service pack 2. I had a go at it myself and was lucky to get trough safe mode start up to get the original XP install disk to work. I clicked on the repair option and everything was fine. I put in the product key which was accepted and I was requested to restart the computer. I felt real smart that I?d done ok when the professionals couldn?t. So I rebooted and the message appeared: Microsoft has to activate this product before you can log on, do you want to activate now? I clicked yes and the picture of the former desktop background appeared and 30 minutes later nothing had changed. No activation, no notification to call tech help, nothing. I then re booted in safe mode with internet only to get the same message, Microsoft has to activate-----. This is the second time this install disc has been used and there should not be a problem with it. Can somebody help, please?

I recently installed a Gigabyte 990FXA-UD3 motherboard, replacing a MSI NF980-G65 mobo, and got the notification to activate Windows (I had installed the NF980-G65 mobo 4 years ago with no activation problems).

However, selecting the Activate now line in the Control Panel\System box just started SLUI but nothing else happened.

I got several automated boxes at various times saying Activate now but when I entered my Product Key I'd get the error that 'The activation server determined that the specified product key could not be used. Error 0C004C008'. I also tried selecting Activate via telephone but the only phone number that appeared was '+971 4 391 7000. The other two selections were blank. Of course, the +971 number was invalid.

I went online to MS Chat and the tech determined that I had some corrupt files after trying to connect remotely and being rejected by my PC. They had me issue: SLMGR /DLV, SLMGR /CPKY, SLMGR /UPK, AND SLMGR /REARM, which apparently erased my product key.

They then had me download an ISO file so I could 'Upgrade' my PC, figuring that would un-corrupt my files. After running all night and after installing 200+ missing Windows updates, I get to the System box in the Control Panel and select 'Activate Windows Now'. Again, SLUI runs but nothing happens but it gives me two more days to activate.

I ran MGADiag and have posted the results:

Hello rzn,

Since it was activated on the old motherboard, activation is thinking that you are trying to also activate it on the new motherboard as well.

Alright so, a while back i for some absent minded reason upgraded to Windows 8 for fun. Pretty sure i was drunk or something. It completely broke my computer in 100 ways and i hated it, so i grabbed my DVD and went back to Win7. Only problem is, it keeps telling me invalid key. When i called Customer Support, i was told i have to re-buy Windows 7 because i wiped my HDD when Win8 installed.

Now SURELY there is some way for me to get Windows 7 back without spending tons of money, especially since i have already paid the outrageous price for Ultimate once. I'm not really understanding why it won't let me use the key.

A:Cannot activate Windows 7

A little more info is needed.
Is your system from a major manufacturer like Dell or HP?
If so was the DVD you used to do the reinstall from that major manufacturer?
Was the Key you used from the COA sticker on that system?
Was the DVD you used the SAME type, Home Premium, Pro or Ultimate, as what is on that COA sticker?

A:Windows can not activate

It looks to me as if you simply neglected to activate it inside the Grace Period.


telephone activation (operator calls)
Click on the Start button
in the Search box, type
SLUI 4
and hit the Enter key
follow the instructions, but when asked which service you require by the telephone ansafone, do NOT reply - this should force an operator to respond, who can deal with you

My laptop was purchased in 2010 and has Windows 7 Professional on it. I never had a problem until about 2 months ago when restored to factory settings, which doesn't require a Windows disc. About a month later I started getting messages all over about how Windows might not be genuine and I needed to activate it. The only option it gave me was to activate online, which when I did that I got an error.

So I reformatted AGAIN, hoping I wouldn't have the problem. Now it tells me I have 2 days until automatic activation, which I'm guessing isn't going to work because it didn't last time. When I click 'Activate Window Now', I get an error: 0x8007007B... Now right under that there is a product ID and I'm not sure if that's what I need to enter, or where to enter it.

I went to Microsoft's website and had it run its test to see if it says Windows is genuine, and it is, but I'm worried that I'm gonna run into the same problem as last time if I don't get this activated. I'd much rather figure out a way to do it online than over the phone. Thanks!

A:HOW TO ACTIVATE WINDOWS 10

Hi,  What is the message EXACTLY ? I don't think that message has anything to do with your computer. I think it a a message from Microsoft which reminds people to upgrade machine to Windows 10 for free. The end date is 29Jul2016, after that date (ie from 30Jul2016) Microsoft will charge people for upgrades. Regards.

If you have Genuine Windows then you should call Microsoft. Their toll-free number would be on the package of Windows CD. You paid for it, give them headache :)
