my bluetooth device cant be found in the device manager is there another way to find it? also my web cam now displays upside down anyone has any ideas how to fix this it would be greatly appreciated im tunning windows 7 on my only comp so its a bit of a problem
I'm having the same issue with my dell latitude e4300. It rejects the vista software/driver install as not being a compatible OS. This is working on my Dell Latitude D820 however. I wonder how I can get past this.
Am I right-clicking on the driver download file? The EXE? The program won't install and the laptop doesn't recognize the bluetooth radio hardware at all. Thanks.
It was painfully long process, but I finally have it working. I installed Vista with all the drivers. I then upgraded to Windows 7. I was successful in pairing my bluetooth mouse. I still wonder if Kyle's suggestion would have worked. Thanks everyone.
When I first installed 7, it automatically picked up my sony ericsson cell phone bluetooth. Then I could control my pc, with my phone, transfer files, all kinds of stuff. Until an update, now I can only do about half that stuff. When I try to troubleshoot, it says that a driver is missing, and can't locate one. Where can I download these drivers.
Thanks Reghakr for your quick reply. If you can tell me how to find out if the update was important or not that would be great. I think I know the answer to this, but: Will it not just re-download the update? (probably no, right). I like a lot of others here owe you a lot. Thanks!
- Install the downloaded software but it may not look like it worked on Windows 7 PCs. Vista automatically configures the settings on the bluetooth devices but for those who have Windows 7, here are the things you should do:
- Go to 'Device Manager' from 'Control Panel' -Or- just right-click on Computer Icon and choose 'Properties' and then click on 'Device Manager'.
- You'll see an 'Unknown Device' named 'Bluetooth Peripheral Device' - Right-Click it and click on "Update Driver Software" -Or- anyway you find it easy to bring up the Update driver window.
- Click "Browse My Computer for Driver Software" button.
- Click "Let Me Pick from a List of Device Drivers on my computer".
- Select 'Bluetooth Radio' from the list if it asked you to select and then in the next window, it will show a list of drivers with Company Names in one list and Drivers in another. In the Company List choose 'Microsoft Corporation', not only Microsoft.
- From the drivers list there may be one or more drivers with the name "Windows Mobile-Based Device Support" with different driver versions. Select one or the latest. - Ignore any warnings and keep pressing next and then Finish at last. If all goes well, the last screen will show the message that device driver is successfully installed.
Now, after manually updating the driver for your bluetooth device, in 'Device Manager' when you click on 'Bluetooth Radios', it should display one more item which will say 'Windows Mobile-based device support'.
There are few more things that you want to pay attention to. If you have already added the device in your 'bluetooth device list' that didn't work, then remove the device and add it again. After you add it, you might need to restart the computer if it gave you a connection problem error message.
Every PCs that had Windows 7 and Vista worked after installing this software and I hope it will work for you too.
Help!! I recently upgraded to Windows Home Premium on my Acer Aspire 5100. My embedded Bluetooth worked before the upgrade but it has never worked since. I have tried everything I know. When I went to Acers' site, they showed NO drivers for Windows 7 for my model.
