Download Bluetooth device drivers or install DriverPack Solution software for driver scan and update. This package installs the software (Bluetooth driver) to enable the following device. Broadcom 43142 Bluetooth Driver for Windows 7 (32-bit, 64-bit) - Notebook. Version Device Manager). Choose the folder you would like to download the file to and click Save.
Yes I have Intel Adaptor as well. So we both appear to be in the same boat.
I am about to try the 2nd Download listed on the Link #2 you posted. EDIT - Wow, that really did work! So here's what I did that solved my problem. (For those who come after me) 1.
Serial key backuptrans. Go to This is the 2nd link FlyingsCool posted 2 posts above this. Get the 2nd Download from that page which lists the download file details as • Driver Version: 17.1.1501.0510 • Release Date: 2014-12-17 • File Size: 33.49M • Supported OS: Windows 7 64bit That's because I have Win 7 64 bit.
If you have different OS, select Accordingly. Extract the contents of the downloaded Zip file. You're looking for Intel Bluetooth.msi as one of the files. DO NOT I repeat NOT launch the Setup.exe. It DOES NOT install those Bluetooth drivers.
Don't ask me why but it most definitely didn't for me. Once that's completed, attempt to pair any Bluetooth device with the Computer. Mind you, immidiately there will be a new icon in the tray of Installing Drivers for Plug N Play Devices. Click on it and open the window for the multiple drivers being set up.
Make sure they all result in a Green Check mark next to them. It will take time, just be patient. The first time I tried this, I had paired my phone. However, seeing your problem, I went and Paired my BT Headset Mixcder Ghost.
Once I went through the pairing process, I saw Drivers getting installed for Bluetooth Audio Hands-Free Profile Advanced Audio Distribution Profile Audio/Video Remote control After that was completed, I do see the Headphone in Playback Devices but it appears as Disconnected. Clicking on Connect does not work.
If I am to connect a Wired headphone, the sound transfers just fine. It turns out the Bluetooth is a function of the wireless card in the laptop. In mine, a Zbook 15, it is an Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6235. I went to Intel and found their drivers. I've got some other stuff to do. I think I found the latest driver for that card, I'll have to uninstall what I see and I'll install the latest. You may also want to go through your Windows services and make sure all appropriate services are started.
I can't see my device under playback, nor do I see any services available under the device even though all the drivers are installed and enabled and working properly. If you can, I'm not sure why it won't turn on. I did see some media network services. Maybe it's one of those? As I noted, I realized the driver installed wasn't correct for my card. I uninstalled all the bluetooth drivers on my system, downloaded the latest Bluetooth and Proset Wireless software and drivers, and installed them.
