Ok first off let me say I'm brand new to this forum. I don't even know if this thread is in the right section. I tried to place it correctly, but if I goofed? Please forgive me & move it to the appropriate section. I've had a problem w/ my bluetooth adapter for 3 months now! Let me elaborate a little bit on my odyssey. First off when I got this computer I paired my DroidX phone with it via bluetooth. Everything was wonderful then, it was a very happy marriage. It streamed music from the ph through the laptop speakers & transferred files back & forth. It was wonderful, unfortunately I uninstalled it one day & it hasn't worked correctly since. Here's what I know. Originally it worked fine, after the uninstall/reinstall it can pair w/ my phone & transfer files fine. But music streaming is out. I tried to select the "options" in the bluetooth driver properties, but it tells me the parameter is incorrect. So I started researching this stuff & here's what I think I know. My broadcom driver is currently 188.8.131.52 which seems to be up to date. However I tried to run a program I got from broadcom which is SetupBtwDownloadSE.exe but it fails everytime. It tells me it can't detect my bluetooth device, which I just don't understand as I have it paired w/ the comp & everything. From what I've found several people suggested turning off the Avast! virus checker (and those people said that fixed their issues). Well when I turn off my virus checker it doesn't do diddley, & the SetupBtw thing from Broadcom still won't run properly. Here's the info I got from my event viewer about it....

Which is why I finally broke down, joined the forum, ran up the white flag, in a desperate cry for help. I don't know where the problem lies at this point, but I'm fairly certain its my broadcom bluetooth adapter software (I hope)! This computer isn't a yr old, & the laptop came new with the bluetooth adapter preinstalled. Help me all ye wise computer users....you're my only hope!
