I am trying to connect my G505s to my Bose wireless speaker via Bluetooth. I am not able to find anything relating to Bluetooth in my Device Manager and no Bluetooth drivers. The Bluetooth symbol does not appear in my Windows Taskbar as I've seen it on other PCs. I am running Windows 8.1.
Things I have done so far:
- I downloaded the Atheros,Broadcom driver for Windows 8.1 (188.8.131.526/184.108.40.20650) from the Lenovo website. When I try to install it I am told that there are no valid drivers to be installed.
-I followed the instructions from Windows which said to go into Settings > Change PC Settings > PC & Devices and ensure that Bluetooth is there. Microsoft states that Bluetooth capable computers should have a Bluetooth settings page in here. I don't have one.
- From some reading online I came across instructions to run services.msc and change the Bluetooth settings in there. I followed these instructions and didn't have any luck. All of the Bluetooth listings in here state that Bluetooth is running.
- Made sure that my computer setting to locate other devices is enabled.
I'm not really sure if this computer is Bluetooth ready or not. If it isn't, I'm not sure why there are Bluetooth things "running" in services.msc though...
I have a problem on my Acer 1810tz - when I press a Function button, such as Fn + F8 = mute/unmute sound, there is a very long delay of up to 3 seconds between pressing the button and seeing the speaker symbol show up on screen.
Acer's Launch Manager program is what displays the on-screen symbols. I have installed the latest version from the Acer website (it is a fresh install of Win7 64bit) found here, version 3.0.02.
When I purchased the laptop the symbols appeared straight away but now, after a fresh install, there is a long delay. All I have installed is chipset/graphics drivers and touchpad drivers.
Just wanted to share my upgrade experience with my Aspire 4736z. My model did not come with bluetooth installed from the factory and it only has 3 usb ports and I wanted to keep them as free as possible.
So I found a place that sells the bluetooth module and cable needed.
I installed the module and cable and everything works great. Installed the driver and now my bluetooth button works as it should.
Here is the link to the place where I bought the module from:
i have had my laptop for a few wks now and keep tryin to work out whether it is bluetooth or not. if i press the bluetooth button on my laptop i see the message no device. last night i read notes to do with another laptop and followed the link to the acer website and tried to download the bluetooth drivers for my pc. when i downloaded the utility to my laptop i get the following msg "no bluetooth device was connected. please makesure that your bluetooth device is plugged in properly in order to continue installation" does this mean i need to physically plug something into my laptop or is my laptop not bluetooth afterall. how can i find out.
I have upgraded to Windows XP and reinstalled all the drivers I need from the Acer website. Wireless networking is fine.
The problem is, when I slide the Bluetooth switch on the front of my computer while a device (Nintendo Wiimote) is waiting to connect to the computer, "No Device" in green text shows up on the bottom of my screen. I think this shows the driver is somewhat working and the hardware is detected. The LED indicator beside the switch does not light up.
I go to my control panel and double click the "Bluetooth Configuration" icon, nothing happens for a while, then a single dialog shows up saying "Bluetooth device not found. Please verify that your Bluetooth device is properly connected and turned on." showing only an OK button.
Inside the computer management window, under device manager, a group called "Bluetooth Devices" exists, and inside is something named "Bluetooth Bus Enumerator". I have right clicked on both and tried "Scan for Hardware Changes" and nothing happened. The properties show that "This device is working properly"
Drivers Provider is Broadcom 1/11/2006 Version 220.127.116.110
Yes I have restarted my computer several times. All of the above actions were performed four, once with my finger holding the switch and once without, then again with the Wiimote in a waiting-for-connector mode.
My Wii is turned off with the power supply unplugged, there are no other devices with Bluetooth in my house.
how to get Bluetooth working.
There are other problems with this laptop, the card reader only supports SD cards, not Memory Sticks or xD cards. That's a problem for another day. However I would never recommend this laptop and this brand to anyone, but it was pretty cheap.
I have the laptop above and I just saw the bluetooth switch (on the left of the keyboard was on) and now it's messing up my words. I have to type slow in order to avoid getting extra letters in my words or random caps lock. I'll type the same paragraph but in my normal speed I type in.

some hppened to windows vista installed and i was left with no option but to format. i downgraded to xp sp3 and installed all the drivers. but wlan and bluetooth are not working even i have installed the drivers. it seems that the buttons on the unit are not working.
I cant find my bluetooth device in my (acer aspire s3 ultrabook i5 2467m 13.3) before i am using window7 it works properly but now im switch to windows8.1 and i cant find my bluetooth device even in device manager. i also used scan driver but nothing happend..
When I check the Bluetooth driver in device manager,there's a message that says "Windows cannot start this hardware device because its configuration information (in the registry) is incomplete or damaged (code 19).
I recently brought a Aspire E5-411, in Thailand, with a Linpus Linux OS. I installed my prefered OS Win7 x64. I managed to locate and install the hardware drivers. The strange thing is there is no bluetooth device showing in device manager. Is it because
(a) there is no b/tooth adapter on this model, (b) the adapter is faulty, (c) I need to install a driver to activate, or (d) other?
And now my issues: I cant find drivers for bluetooth.... USBVID_04CA&PID_2009&REV_0112 (wifi works) cant find drivers for...USB2.0 CRW .. USBVID_0BDA&PID_0129&REV_3960 and the scrolling with mousepad/touchpad (two fingers) doesn't work .... I read here i have to intall intel IO drivers but which one?! if its possible with links.
I have an acer aspire 6930z with a bluetooth button but no hardware installed, though the software is installed. I have bought a bluetooth dongle and installed it on my desktop running xp everything works OK. Installed it on my laptop but it only partly works with the pre-installed software. I don't know how to remove the installed software.
It does say in the installation instructions that any old bluetooth software should be removed first.
