Hi ,

I am using Windows XP SP2.


I purchased BT Dongle.
 
I installed Widcomm .
 
Taskbar ICON turns from red to white when I connect dongle to usb adapter.
 
When I right click on icon I get "Start using Bluetooth" option.
When I click the option I get following error.
" Bluetooth device not found.
Please verify that your device is properly connected and turned on"
 
....
There is no problem in dongle as it works fine on another laptop.
.....
The device recognized by new hardware wizard as "bcm2035"
 
In device manager I could not see any com port .
 
what should I look further ?
 
Please help.

Thank you for reply.

I already gone through metioned thread. And able to coonect on another laptops.

But on this laptop My taskbar bluetooth icon  changed to white when I connect the dongle and turns red when remove it.

So I guess Dongle is detected.

Now when I try to click on "start using Bluetooth"
I get following error.
"Bluetooth device not found.please verify that your Bluetooth device is properlu connected and turned on"


Any suggestion ?

Thanks.

Is this adapter plugged to a USB port or to a USB HUB? Don't use USB HUBs.

Another possibility is that this port is not providing enough power. Try with another USB card (add a second one to your PC).
