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.)

I've just installed a new Win7 Pro 64 on newly assembled PC (i3-6300, B150 chipset - if it's important), but can not connect BT headset to it. Installed gazillion of updates, installed latest drivers (BT dongle - ASUS USB-BT400) from Broadcom site -- and I can't connect my BT headset to it. It pairs w/out a problem, but once paired and I right-click mouse on it (in BT devices) - there is no Services in the menu, and - as a result - no way to connect. (The attached image is from my laptop, where it works).

BT mouse that I have connects and works fine.

Sorry if I posted in the wrong forum - please, move to the appropriate one, if needed.

A:Cannot connect paired bluetooth headset (+)

Hi and welcome to SevenForums,
That is sort of one of the perks of KB3172605





Quote:
Known issues in this update

Issue 1

Symptom
After you install KB 3133977, the software for Intel Bluetooth devices may not be fully functional because of existing software issues in the Intel Bluetooth driver software. These issues may affect Bluetooth keyboards, mice, audio streaming devices, and voice headsets. You may also not be able to pair new Bluetooth devices. Intel is currently working on an update to address their software incompatibilities.

Workaround
If you require Intel Bluetooth support on Windows 7 before the revised software is available, the only known workaround at this time is to uninstall this update temporarily and then reinstall it after Intel has updated their software.

To all,

I have been searching everywhere but can not find the solution.

In previous versions of Windows, after 2 Bluetooth devices are paired, you can select or connect the device you want to use. You can have device that connect automatically or it can be manual.

In windows 8 or 8.1 I can not find the way to selectively connect a device. For example, i have a Bluetooth speaker and 2 computers physically next to each other. The speaker automatically connect to one of the computer. If I want to connect the speaker to the other computer , (both are 8.1) i do not have any option to disconnect one and connect the other except if i remove the device from both computer and pair it again to the computer i want to use. Same example if i want to connect two computers via bluetooth. In that case the connection is not automatic and i have to remove both devices and pair the devices again.

Any ideas.

Thank you,

Good day ~~
I am working on a ASUS laptop (2 yrs. old), Windows 8.1
I a Bose wireless Soundlink speaker. I paired it to my cell phone and my other laptop, so I know it works. I paired it to my other laptop and shows it is paired. But, it does not connect.

I get:
Bluetooth Audio Device Properties under General a yellow triangle with an exclamation point. It states ~ The device cannot start (Code 10) Object Path Component was not a directory object.

I checked to see if the driver was up to date. It stated it is up to date.

Is there anything easy that I can do myself without paying a lot for the Geek Squad to fix this problem?

By any chance if I upgraded to Windows 10 would it fix this? I would prefer to stay with Windows 8.1.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Hello,My dell m4600 can't  connect with bluetooth headsets.  I have tried connecting it with two different headsets with no success. Computer pairs with headsets but playing music is impossible.  Playback devices in sound section of control panel are disconnected, trying to connect with them is impossible. When I click on ''play music'' in device and printer section, link doesn't react. I spent entire night updating all drivers for the computer however something is still not alright. After updating everything that was possible the device manager left me with an unknown bluetooth peripheral device. I upgraded drivers from Intel and Broadcomm and latest available version of driver for Dell 350. Hardware ID: points out towards broadcomm however I have no idea what's up. i installed it  3 times by now

Today I looked at my Bluetooth settings on my Surface Pro 3 and noticed there were two devices paired to my computer that I don't recognize. One was an LG keyboard phone, another is a computer. I removed both devices. I have never authorized these devices to connect and I am the only user of my computer.
 
Is this a cause for concern? What access could these devices gain in this way? I leave my Bluetooth on all the time, is that unwise?
 
Thanks for any advice.

I've been trying to connect a Bluetooth video game controller to my laptop via a USB Bluetooth dingle I have.

Windows sees the device, and when I attempt to add it to Window's list of devices it will connect and Windows will look for, and install, the relevant drivers. The device appears in my laptops list of devices for about 30 seconds and then will just disappear from the list as if it were never there, despite both Bluetooth devices still being on and fully functioning.

What could be causing this? Is the controller just not Windows compatible?

Edit: sorry, should add I have Windows 7 Home Premium, 64-bit.

Hi all.

I recently bought and tried to connect a pair of (Edifier W800BT) Bluetooth headphones to my Windows 10 desktop.

The headphones were detected by the computer, but, when I tried to <Add device>, it repeatedly failed.

I had another set of (Logitech) Bluetooth headphones that were already paired. I tried them, and they still worked fine.

I then unpaired the Logitech headphones. Made no difference (to my Edifier connection problem), but I discovered I could no longer pair the Logitechs either. In fact, I tried several other Bluetooth devices (phone, speaker) with the same result ? the computer would discover/recognize the devices, but would be unable to add (pair with) them. So I?d made things worse.

I checked (in Device Manager) for the latest Bluetooth drivers, and made sure Bluetooth Support Service and Bluetooth Handsfree Service were set to <Automatic>. Still no luck.

This is what I see in Device Manager:





Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I'm trying to use my SB270 Bluetooth Headphones. They pair just fine and show up in Devices and Printers. They also show up in my Bluetooth Devices. They however, do not show up in Sound Playback.
All my drivers are up to date and the headphones' software is also up to date and installed. If I double left click the headphones in Devices and Printers, this screen shows up. I can click connect under audio services and the button grays out as if it is working, but after about a minute, the button is back and the status is still "disconnected."
I am using a bluetooth keyboard and mouse which work perfectly, so I suspect the issue isn't with my bluetooth but something about the interaction between Windows 8.1 and the headphones' software. This same pair work perfectly when paired to my phone (Samsung S5), and SO's phone (Motorola Atrix Hd), and our home desktop (Windows 7 Home Premium x64).

I found a thread on seven forums for a similar issue and tried their solutions with no success. At this point, I'll try anything short of re-installing my OS.

Here are my specs if they help.

Hi,

I have recently installed Windows 8.1 and today I tried to connect my phone (Nexus 4) via Bluetooth. The phone did get connected without any issues but didn't give any option for playing music as it did in Windows 7. A Bluetooth audio control would pop up in Windows 7 but that didn't happen. My phone plays music via Bluetooth and is working fine, I use it everyday in my car.

Please suggest what needs to be done in order to get this rectified. Do I need a separate software?

I am sorry I post my question here because I can not find a better place. My X4000b  bluetooth mouse is a little more than one year old.  I bought it with my Surface Pro 3.  It was only connected to the Surface from the first day, and working fine .  Recently, I start to experience periodic connection issue.  Today, after turn on my Surface, the mouse simple stopped working.  I tried everything I can think of, including change battery, reboot Surface, turn off bluetooth setting on Surface then turn on again, remove the mouse as a bluetooth device then reconnect again, tried to update windows system and mouse hardware (both was the latest).  No matter what I tried, the status of the mouse is alway paired not connected.  At the same time, my old HP Bluetooth keyboard and the surface pen both working fine.  I guess that means bluetooth on the Surface side are working fine.  BTW, I did not add/remove/change any devices in the past year. Please help me solve this issue.   Thank you.

I am currently trying to get my PH-EB200 Earbuds (Bluetooth) to play the audio from my HP laptop. I have an internal Bluetooth driver that recognizes the earbuds, and they have paired. However, under Sound/Playback, the earbuds are not shown as a playback device. The buds work fine with my phone, so I am not sure what I am missing, or what steps I need to take to get these earbuds to play the audio from my laptop.

Found this out: the Broadcom driver updates that Microsoft provides causes Windows 8.1 to not prompt passcodes for pairing new Bluetooth devices.
---
I've noticed that I'm unable to un-pair already paired devices (two Windows Phones, an Android phone, and Android tablet).
By uninstalling every little Bluetooth-related entry in Device Manager (devices, adapter, etc.), I somehow caused the Bluetooth section to "blank out"; the section is unable to find what was paired any more, likewise if I pair something (which I CAN do), I'll be unable to un-pair for good.
It's tough to describe it, actually...
Now, when I attempt to re-pair, say, my Windows Phone... on that, it gives me the passcode. On the PC, it errors out:
"That didn't work: Adding your device didn't work. First remove it from your PC, and then try again."

Without a way to un-pair my devices that are being reluctant to, well, either pair or un-pair, what CAN I do?
By mentioning Device Manager, after the removal of the adapter, full uninstallation, a reboot, and reinstalling the adapter...
ALL of the devices paired CAME BACK!
I'm poking around HKLM\Sys\CCS\Enum\BTHENUM, seeing entries involving the said devices, but they can't be removed: Property keys from within the device's key are unable to be removed, despite ownership.
MAJOR help is necessary, as I'll be unable to utilize Bluetooth properly in the near future. Thanks.

A:Unable to Remove Paired Bluetooth Devices For Good

Found this to give a try:

Go to START icon and type in services.msc and select services.
The dialog box that opens has a long list of stuff but look for BLUETOOTH SUPPORT SERVICE. Double click to open. Make sure it is AUTOMATIC. Go to the LOG tab. Choose THIS ACCOUNT and type in LOCAL SERVICE. A list of password (a 15-dot string) would appear. Delete all the password in the PASSWORD and under CONFIRM. Choose Okay.
It will ask you to restart the service. Once restarted, turn on your bluetooth adaptor again. Put your mouse in pairing mode and add the mouse.

Also look for hidden devices in Device Manager and uninstall any Bluetooth ones you find.

I've been searching for the problem and trying out solutions but none have worked so far. I registered here so I can ask for help anyway.

Months ago, these headphones were fine. They connected to the PC and songs were played flawlessly. However, as I tried it again today, it didn't work. I turned on the headphones then the blue light blinked quickly, indicating that it's on but is not connected. Then I tried to play a song on the PC. But instead of playing that song, it played a different song instead.

It turns out that it was connected to the iPod. So I turned off the iPod's bluetooth and waited for the headphones to connect to the PC. But it didn't work.

The headphones were already paired but it refused to connect. When I right-click it, there is no connect or any other options. Only Properties and Troubleshooting were in bold letters.

I removed the device and tried to pair it again. They did connect, but then it stopped again. Stating "device driver not found". But I checked the official website and it said it didn't need a driver. On Devices and Printers, a yellow triangle was displayed near the icon of the device.

Again I tried to google for a solution. So I tried to update the drivers from Device Managers -> Update Driver Software and manually install the driver -> PORTS (COM & LTP) -> Microsoft (Standard Serial over Bluetooth link). The yellow triangle disappeared, but it still DOESN'T WORK.

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.

Hi, I recently got this new WLAN Bluetooth Combo Adapter so that I could have the option to use bluetooth devices with my laptop. I'd connect my Sony MDR-XB950BT bluetooth headset and use it to talk to friends on Skype. When I look in my sound devices, there are normally two devices my headset connects with: "Headphones" and "Headset". The headset option is what lets me use my mic. However, now "Headset" displays as "Disconnected" and right-clicking then pressing "Connect" doesn't help. When I unpair then re-pair the device, it takes forever to download it's drivers, then I see that there is no "Headset" option in my sound devices at all! It reappears upon restart, but again as "Disconnected". Also, now when I connect my headphones, the "Headphones" option also displays as "Disconnected", but unlike the "Headset" option I am able to right-click and press connect and it will then connect. All my drivers are up-to-date and when searching for my new WLAN Bluetooth adapter I was told by an HP expert (who was a great help by the way) that this one was indeed compatible with my laptop model. It worked at first, but now I'm having these issues. There is no answer anywhere online that works for me. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance

I love my Sony DR-BT101 bluetooth headset. It would connect fine with my PC and worked beautifully. Unexpectedly, it suddenly stopped connecting and every time I tried to pair nothing would happen. I've been able to add the device, so the PC recognizes it. However, it won't connect with the PC and the device does not show up as an option in the playback tab in the sounds menu.

So, I tried following this link:

http://windows7forums.com/windows-7-networking/24580-make-your-bluetooth-devices-work-windows-7-a.html

Still nothing. I'm not even sure what the Mobile Device Center is meant to do as the headset is not a mobile device like a handheld. It said I should see an 'Unknown Device' named 'Bluetooth Peripheral Device' - which never was listed.

My headset is not on low battery, and has never had connection issues in the past, or even problems with playback. I haven't messed with any of the PC's services or changed anything on my adapter.

If someone could help me out that would be great, or share similar attempts to solve this problem.

I'm not sure what that replaces, since when I look in the Device Manager, under Intel Wireless Bluetooth 4.0 Adapter, it still says 17.0.1401.422. Any suggestions of where to look next would be appreciated.

I have a a Dell Latitude E7450, running W7 Pro (64 bit). I recently bought an August EP650 bluetooth headset and tried to connect. It does not. It is recognised in 'Devices and printers' and drivers are installed and when I go to 'Sound' I can see it, but it is disconnected and nothing can make it connect. 
I searched the internet for 2 days and tried various things. I understand I have to go to 'Device and printers' -> right click and select 'Service' and click on 'Listen to music' or 'Forward VoIP to Handsfree'. I click on 'Listen to music' - nothing happens. No message, just nothing. I checked 'Properties' -> 'Services' and 'Headset' is selected as a Bluetooth Service. I tried everything suggested on forums.
I went to Dell drivers and could see a new bluetooth driver issued on 01.08.17. Downloaded and installed it. The fun started then as the headset would not install correctly, I hade like 15 issues with 'Bluetooth Peripheral Device'. Nothing I did installed the correct drivers for 'Bluetooth Peripheral Device'.
I gave up and called Dell, but they see it as a software issue (yeah! their software!!!) and want to charge me the earth for helping me with no guarantees.
I found the restore point and rolled back to before I installed the new drivers. Device manager is now not complaining, but still nothing works.
BTW - the headset connects to my mobile no problem. So ... Read more

Hey all,

I have a Windows 7 32bit Enterprise.
I bought a bluetooth speaker Anker SoundCore this week, but it wonīt connect. I installed the drivers needed, but when I click on "estblish connection", nothing would happen.

I tried reinstalling the drivers, my speaker as well as the computer are both visible, all bluetooth processes start automatically.
My computer connects normally to my old phone, but when I try to connect to my new phone and to play music via itīs speaker, it wouldnīt work as well, so I guess that computer is the problem.

Can someone help me, please?

Hello. I have located and updated Bluetooth in my Devices folder. I have turned on Bluetooth in settings. The message says, "Your PC is searching for and can be discovered by Bluetooth devices." My Bluetooth device is turned on and has been connected to my cellphone and speaker.  But I can't get my bluetooth to connect to my laptop. Any advice?  

A:Trouble connecting bluetooth

Hi: I see that your notebook originally came with W8 from the factory, so that means that you upgraded to W10. I also see that there are no W10 bluetooth drivers for the model wireless card your notebook has on the support page. Accordingly, the only suggestion I can offer (assuming you have not done so already), would be to install the W10 bluetooth driver for the Ralink/Mediatek bluetooth radio your notebook has.... 11.0.761.0 Rev.A  Jun 18, 2015 This package contains the driver installation package for the Mediatek Bluetooth in the supported notebook models running a supported operating system. http://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp71501-72000/sp71572.exe Restart the PC after installing the above driver and then try connecting via bluetooth.

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!

I've searched everywhere on the net and couldn't find anything so i thought i'd come to these forums because I don't know any others >_< Plz help!

Flok980 welcome to SF,
You must go to BT devices and set it up to look for devices while putting the headphones in visible mode.

I have a pair of August MS515 connected which work only intermittently and which seem to require me to restart me machine several times before they will finally work. I've uninstalled several times, basically done everything I can. The manufacturers tell me that Dell is particularly bad for supporting their equipment and that I need to install the latest (Radio) drivers to make sure that the connection works all the time. At the moment the speakers are both visibly paired and indeed reporting as connected via bluetooth but there's no sound and I can't get them to Connect when I right click on the sound icon. SO the only speakers showing as connected are the default laptop's. Any idea what I need to download and update form the Dell website? They, of course, disown me as I reuse to buy a new laptop from them and think it;s weird that I have one which is 6 years old. I've tried downloading the WLAN Radio Switch but that stops and I also can't get the DellRctlService to start or run,. Si I suppose I'm stuffed, unless someone brighter can point me in the right direction!
