Bluetooth devices are not detected- Windows 7 64

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I have no idea why this is. I tried installing the offical Asus USB-BT211 and that didn't work. Drivers installed but it doesn't detect anything. So I tried installing other bluetooth stacks and still it doesn't work.

Does anyone have ideas of what I could be doing wrong? And yes, my devices have been put into discovery mode. My cellphone has no problem seeing my headsets and connecting to them.

Do you have a bluetooth receiver on your PC? You need a receiver, your motherboard won't receive a signal on its own.

If you don't you can pick one up online really cheap.

Check to see if bluetooth support is started in services:

1. Click the start button in the lower left and type 'services.msc'
2. Type enter
3. Locate bluetooth support or something to that effect
4. Make sure the service is started and automatic... if it isn't you can right click and go to properties to change that.

I have now brought 2 receivers. My cheap one looks like the one you linked. It didn't come with any disc and was never detected. Kept a ! on it. After reading amazon reviews on this device I figured the device was my problem. It just didn't support Windows 7 64. So I brought a brought a Asus USB- BT211, uninstalled all my bluetooth drivers and devices and then installed the Asus supplied ones and it still didn't work.

Started and automatic. It was one of the first things I checked.

Edit: Directions are saying that when I plug in the devices windows is suppose to load the profile. Windows isn't loading the profile...

Hey,
Did you solve it. If you did then plz share the solution. Have the same problem with my bt211 2.1+ADR

Kick.
Same problem here.
I didn't get my Rampage IV Extreme built in bluetooth dongle working, so I bought a separate dongle (an Asus USB-BT211 (100m))
But the same problem comes up. Doesn't seem to be detected. And also, this is in the manual:

But when I do exactly that, only this shows up:

Very disappointed. Was already not happy to buy a bluetooth dongle when my motherboard has one built in, but if it doesn't even work..

I fixed mines by reinstalling windows.

I had this same problem with wireless printers. On fresh installs my pc would not connect to the printer. Sometimes the only thing that fixes it is to reinstall a few times until it suddenly worked. I tried CC cleaner to remove all printer drivers as well as removing everything manually. Called HP to help and still couldn't get it to work. I think Microsoft just screwed up the wireless drivers for 7. Haven't even tried 8 yet for my own home use.
