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.

Hello, I own a Ideapad z500 non touch version preinstalled 8.0 OS. A week ago, a day after the official release of windows 8.1, i updated from 8.0.  Point to note that i did not create an recovery image file before updating.  Now, to the probem part: Bluetooth device just wont pair up with my phone and i cannot listen to music nor make calls via bluetooth settings like it existed before in win 8.0 and to make it worse i cant even transfer files via bluetooth. Its like the bluetooth settings just exist on the notebook just to inform me about all active device around me. but just cant do anything apart from that. When i tried updating the bluetooth drivers manually the update was listed in grey (that is, unavailable for update) now i personally feel windows 8.1 as mother of all useless update. Also to note that with that update it had earlier messed  up my brightness controls too. Fortunately, i managed to find an earlier driverversion for that and fixed that issue.  So please do let me know, if there exists any solution to fix this issue. 













Solved!

Hi,

I did a Win7 Pro clean install on a HP Slate 2. Wi-Fi is working but Bluetooth is not. I downloaded the Atheros Bluetooth International driver from HP Support Center and tried to install it several times. But BT just won't start. There's no BT Tray and I can't connect to my cell via BT. I tried an external old USB dongle and it worked immediately. But I want to use the internal device. In the process of trying to solve this, I've installed the HP Connection Manager, I've set the Bluetooth services to automatic start.

What else can I do?

Thanks.

A:HP Slate 2 Windows 7 Professional Atheros AR6003 Bluetooth

On desktops and laptops you can enable or disable the Bluetooth device in BIOS/UEFI.
You should check that first.
(I have not been able to 'play' with a tablet yet, so I'm not sure on how to get to the settings.)

Where can I buy one of these? Its exactly what I'm looking for to upgrade my laptop and it seems to be the only half size one in existence, but I cant find anywhere to buy it. There arent even any sketchy Hong Kong Ebay auctions for it. I understand that Atheros is probably only selling them to OEMs right now but I find it very hard to believe that none of them have made it to a venue that I can purchase from. Any help on this would be greatly appreciated. Also, if you'd like to sell me one, I'm open to that too.

I'm currently using HP DV7-7015CA on windows 8.1
it came with Intel N-2230 wireless/bluetooth chip, but it was a pain in the ass and had lots of connection problems
so I replaced the with a Atheros AR5B97 wireless/bluetooth chip from my older laptop

the problem I have now is that the bluetooth isn't detected/working on my HP
can anyone spare some tips to solve this?

EDIT:
I've already tried all the possible drivers from ATHEROS drivers for Microsoft Windows (Atheros?????)
and it's still not working
I've also tried atheros bluetooth manager driver from acer (the brand of my old laptop)
but it didn't support win8, so it wouldn't install
I've also tried atheros bluetooth driver from sony, but it mad absolutely no difference

EDIT2:
I've concluded that I DO infact have the driver, I just can't seem to enable it
when I put the atheros chip back in acer, it also doesn't show bluetooth in device manager, but when i press the wireless hotkey (fn+F3), on the acer, and switch bluetooth to on thru the utility, bluetooth popped up in device manager
so i guess the question now is how do I enable the bluetooth on my HP?

I'm trying to upgrade Win7 to Win8. The compatibility checker flagged the Atheros BT Suite as follows: "Uninstall this app now because it isn't compatible with Windows 8."

I removed it using the program uninstaller. It appeared to finish cleanly and prompted to reboot. Then, Win8 says it's still installed and has to be removed manually.

Yup, the uninstaller left behind its program files, driver and numerous registry entries.

So, how do I manually remove the bluetooth suite?

A:Atheros BlueTooth Suite Won't Uninstall

Safe mode, regedit, manually search for everything Atheros related- you'll probably have to 'Take possession' of some of the keys, and you might run into the dreaded 'Trusted Installer' block.. hit the web for instructions to disable/modify that one. I had to do it just to clear out some extra cursor fluff I didn't want.

Hoping you may help me:

After acquiring a laptop - Samsung 350V5C-S05 - I've ran into troubles with the Update functions.
The computer fails to install the bluetooth driver (even through SW Update, non-Windows update software) even after several tries during several weeks.

Using SW Update, I get an error type "-10".
Windows Update displays error code 70080005.
I've tried manually downloading the correct driver and installing it and it doesn't work.
What could I do?

Also, I've been noticing issues on the Internet where websites appear all messed up, with text all over the page and squashed into the left side of the screen. Clearing the cache solves the issue, but I have to do it everyday. What's going on? Should I open a new thread for this or as anyone bumped into this issue?

Hi,

I'm used to solve my computer issues on my own, but today I can't.
For some days, I cannot use the Bluetooth anymore on my laptop. Furthermore, the bluetooth driver has disappeared since I tried to reinstall it, and I can't get it back.
Before :

After :

In normal use, I can see in the Device Manager panel the qualcomm driver (AR3012), and the Bluetooth Network card in "Network and Share Center". There is now no more qualcomm driver in device manager, nor BT card available.
I've downloaded the AR3012 driver from there , and I tried to install using both normal method and running in compatibility mode. The installation runs well, asks me to restart the computer, but there is no improvment at all.

I've tried many things... None worked.

So I can't get the AR3012 Bluetooth driver back, and I have no more way to do this.
Of course, I can't get Bluetooth anymore elsewhere, not in settings, nor in Network settings.
I hope you'll be able to help me, I am tired of spending hours on this !

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:

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.

second time: WiFi off / BT on
third time: WiFi off / BT off

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?

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.

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?

If i press recieve files, it says " windows was unable to transfer some files, an address incompatible with the requested protocol was used.

So i dont know how to fix this!?! Help please? I'm trying to send videos from my phone to my computer via bluetooth!

Hello.

I have an issue with my Medialink USB Bluetooth Adapter - Version 4.0 Class 2 Smart Ready Adapter (Model No. MUA-BA3). Let me explain...

Okay, I have setup my Medialink USB Bluetooth Adapter with the drivers for my Windows 7 operating system. Now, when I plug this USB Bluetooth adapter into my USB port connector on my desktop computer, it automatically lights up with a blue light on the Medialink USB Bluetooth Adapter itself and on my Windows 7 system tray/notification area I get the Bluetooth icon displayed as ?ON?. Then I go ahead and pair the computer and my device(s) (example: a Smartphone) to connect which they do successfully. When I am done using the Bluetooth technology, I disconnect the Bluetooth connection from each device and then instead of leaving your USB Bluetooth adapter ON with my Windows 7 operating system, I go into my Windows 7 system tray/notification area and select ?Turn Adapter OFF?. I then get the red Bluetooth icon in my Windows 7 system tray/notification area demonstrating that my Bluetooth is indeed OFF and the Bluetooth blue light on the Medialink USB Bluetooth Adapter goes OFF or is not lit any longer. Okay, so far so good ? everything is normal.

However, when I shutdown my Windows 7 operating system and then restart the computer at some later point, I notice that the Medialink USB Bluetooth Adapter still shows on my Windows 7 system tray/notification area as OFF (okay ? normal); BUT THE BLUE LIGHT ON THE MEDIA LINK USB BLUETOOTH AD...

A:USB Bluetooth Adapter's Blue Light IS LIT When Bluetooth Is OFF?

Hi, can you give a 20 word or less problem summary please, I got lost in those wordy details.

I am no BT expert or anything, but all I read was complaining about a light being on, which a piece of black electrical tape fixes around my house, regularly *cough* fire alarms.

If the maker of the device doesn't have a solve to your issue... that is usually the end of the road with a cliff.

A:Bluetooth Dongle Not Detecting Bluetooth Mobile

Hi Sri, Welcome to 8 forums.
On windows type "msconfig" in search field at the start menu and open MSconfig. Go to the Services Tab and search for services related to Bluetooth. If any of them are unchecked they will not load on Windows start so make sure you have checked them.

Keep us posted.
