Drivers/Hardware :: Can't Connect Phone To Bluetooth
Aug 1, 2015
So I have a Lenovo Z480 and just installed Windows 10 on it. I used to have Win7 earlier and i'm still using the same drivers. I tried Connecting my Samsung Galaxy S4 to it via Bluetooth and It woudnt even detect it. It detects other laptops around it though.
My phone also doesn't seem to detect the laptop but detects others.
I have a Lenovo H30 desktop which was working perfectly before the windows 10 upgrade, now i can't connect to anything via bluetooth. The Bluetooth icon has disappeared too and I can no longer see it in settings.
Where have the Bluetooth phone operations and setting screen gone when I right click on my iPhone under devices and printers that option is not there which means I cannot show screen when phone rings or want to play audio files from my phone the option was there in windows 8.1
I upgraded my Lenovo W530 running Win7 Pro 64 bit to Windows 10. After the upgrade I can no longer connect to my bluetooth headphones which worked before the upgrade. The bluetooth radio is on. When I click Connect in the Action Center it shows that the headphones are connected but they are not. The headphones (actually my hearing aids) play a notification sound when a bluetooth connection is made and I never hear that sound. If I play music the sound goes to the speaker, not my headphones. I have removed the headphones and repaired them. I have checked that all of the bluetooth device drivers are up to date in Device Manager.
My Lumia 935 windows phone always routinely sent pictures to my Lenovo IdeaCentre desktop when I have Windows 8 and 8.5. I upgraded to Windows 10. Both devices have Bluetooth on. The computer says my phone is paired with it. I try to upload a picture and I get the message "the device you're trying to send to doesn't support sharing over Bluetooth." We've restarted both devices.
I have multiple bluetooth speakers. I don't see any way to select which speaker (or any device, for that matter) that I wish to use. On my Android phone, I can select any of the 10-20 devices that show when I enable bluetooth. How do I do that on Windows 10 on a PC/Laptop? It seems like Windows 10 just tries to connect to the first thing it sees when you turn on Bluetooth.
I am facing a problem with the Bluetooth connectivity in my laptop(OS:windows 10). If i connect to any Bluetooth device (phone/audio), wifi becomes limited and I'll not be able to access the internet. I'm facing this problem only after upgrading to windows 10.
I've connected my iPhone 5 to my HP ZBook 15 on windows 10 via bluetooth but i cant stream music like i used to on win 7, even on windows 7 it worked in the beginning and then i reinstalled win 7 and installed drivers from cd (that came with pc) cause i had a virus, then when i reinstalled it won't work... a while after i installed windows 10 and here i am...i searched bluetooth on sys info and here's the result:
Name Bluetooth Device (RFCOMM Protocol TDI) Adapter TypeNot Available Product TypeBluetooth Device (RFCOMM Protocol TDI) InstalledYes
I'm having quite a bit of trouble removing the generic bluetooth drivers that Windows installs for you. Those have to be gone if I want to install Toshiba Bluetooth Stacks, which I need in order to use my Wii U Pro Controller in my computer. I've gone through a few methods to try this out and all have failed.
I started out by simply uninstalling the drivers on the device manager (or whatever it is called in English). Didn't work, as the drivers were back when I had to plug in my dongle to complete the installation for TBS. When I tried this in Windows 7, it worked flawlessly, yet in Windows 10 this method did not work.
Afterwards, I tried deactivating the forced driver signature, as well as make it so Windows Update doesn't automatically download any drivers it finds suitable. On top of this, I traveled into the INF folder of my Windows folder to do steps that Microsoft recommended: rename bth.inf to bth.inf.old and bth.pnf to bth.pnf.old. With all this, it should in theory work right? Nope, it didn't. Not even after a reset.
My last attempt involved unplugging my PC from the Internet as a first step, followed by everything else listed above and then a reset. The drivers were still back, bth.inf and bth.pnf somehow magically appearing in my Windows folder when I have no Internet access. I'm at a loss as to what I'm supposed to do.
So, I downloaded Windows 10 a week ago, and checked for updates, but no driver updates came up. But I know that my Video Card was out of date, as I kept getting an error and also, my Bluetooth is not working. Hence my point, is there any third party app that allows you to download and update drivers?
On W7 i had my nokia lumia 900 unlocked and could plug it into my pc via the usb and it showed up as another drive.this allowed me to add remove music files etc. since installing W10 it no longer shows up?Indeed w10 seems to be changing things that it wants without me okaying it,if this continues i will be going back to w7. Q: How can i get my phone showing up as a drive i on w10.
I am using a desktop PC that does not have any Bluetooth devices, but Bluetooth is shown as on in the notification center. If I click on it there, it guides me to settings>devices, but there is no Bluetooth option there. I checked device manager and I do not have any Bluetooth devices and I have checked my Ethernet adapter settings and there is also no Bluetooth device there.
I have a second PC which also does not have Bluetooth and it does not appear in that one's notification center.
Dell WLAN bluetooth driver is not installing on my laptop . I found out that the same driver is working fine on my friend's laptop and i even used same driver for windows 8.1 previously.While I install it ,it shows an error that "The installer cannot run on this platform...",,I even tried refreshing my laptop but still it didnot work..
I just purchased a recertified Asus Q302LA 2 in 1 convertible 13.3" Laptop which came with Windows 8 installed. When I upgraded to Windows 10, shortly after I got it, the Bluetooth would not function. It did function with the Windows 8.
On the "System Information" page I found at System Summary>Components>Storage>Problem Devices, this entry: Microsoft Bluetooth Enumerator LE Device BTHMS_BTHLE9&d0f185d&0&0 This device cannot start.
I also found when double clicking on Microsoft Bluetooth Enumerator LE in the Device Manager, and getting the "Properties" box; an entry for "Device Status" under the "General" tab that says: This device cannot start (Code 10) STATUS_DEVICE_POWER_FAILURE
Also, under the "Events" tab in the "Properties" box there is an entry under "Information" that says: Device BTHMS_BTHLE9&d0f185d&0&0 requires further installation.
I have checked for driver updates and there were none. There is no "Bluetooth" icon in the "Action Center" sidebar, instead there is a "Connect" icon, but I cannot connect my bluetooth headphones or a bluetooth keyboard. Just get the message "No Devices Found".
I have the only two services for "Bluetooth" on the Services page "running" with "Automatic" start. I did not find an entry for the Microsoft Bluetooth Enumerator LE.
What I do know is that before I upgraded to Windows 10, there was always a box under (what is now) the heading "This PC". If I connected anything to the computer via a USB cable the computer would automatically recognize it and I would be able to transfer files.
Basically, I have a USB cable that I am using to connect my Samsung Galaxy S4 to my computer, an Acer Aspire. When I plug them into each other nothing happens. There is no pop-up window on my computer that even registers that the device is connected. I've tried multiple times to click the "This PC" button to see if the phone is connected, but it actually seems to be reading other devices around me and asking if I want to connect to them.
I would have used Cortana to ask, but unfortunately I'm having a serious problem with the fact that every single little thing I want to do from the desktop (you know, all the cool new apps or whatnot) requires me to sign into my microsoft account. Unfortunately for me, I created my account so long ago that the verification email they send your forgotten password to I have actually been locked out of because I don't know the password for that, and cannot have the security code sent to my phone since they have a very old number.
System Information: Asus Notebook UX303L, Windows 10, Microsoft Arc Touch Mouse Surface Edition. I just upgraded to Windows 10 (from windows 8.1) on a 2 month old laptop. On previous version there were NO problems with bluetooth. The problems started immediately after upgrade.
When the upgrade finished Windows 10 remembered all of my previous Bluetooth pairs. My bluetooth mouse (Microsoft Arc Touch Mouse Surface Edition) worked before the installation but after my system reboot the cursor no longer showed movement. The batteries are new. The mouse is acting exactly like it does when it is properly connected (lights flash, makes scrolling sounds, etc). When I checked the Bluetooth device screen it still showed as paired. I rebooted. No change. So I unpaired the device. When I unpaired the device it flashed for a second as a possible device to pair with and then was no longer on the list. Other possible devices to pair with appear and disappear from the list without cause. (Ex. sees a scanner for a few seconds then no longer has a scanner. Sometimes its up for a few minutes at most but the list is constantly flickering.) So I rebooted. Then it did not see the mouse at all. I did this for several days. Sometimes when I would turn on my laptop it would flicker, sometimes it would not.
After about 3 days with no explanation it suddenly showed up and did not flicker. I connected the mouse and it worked for about 2 days. On the 3rd day I tried again, and the cursor would no longer respond even though the mouse was acting exactly the same. I rebooted. No change. I unpaired the device and it never showed up on the list. It's flickered a few times but when I click on it to pair it pops up with an error basically saying "cannot pair. Please check and see if the device is still set to connect to bluetooth." That is only on the rare occasion that it actually shows up on the list long enough to hit pair (maybe 2 times out of 50 attempts or more.)
It is a Microsoft mouse by all means it should work on Microsoft drivers.
