Hi,

I have a Sony Vaio VGN-S5XP laptop computer with built in Bluetooth.  I am currently trying to use a Jabra 250v Bluetooth headset to make telephone calls via Skype.

Doing this using the Built in driver results in gaps in speech and the other party not being able to hear me some of the time.

I have looked at various guides on the internet but they all refer to different models of the computer.

I am willing to provide any information you may need!

Thanks for any help you can provide!

Regards

Stewart

Sorry about the blank message, I was in the process of editing it when you replied!

Is there any way I can improve the stability of this connection?

Thanks again

Stewart

Hello Stuart. The Sony Vaio uses its own Bluetooth software. Other software may or may not work, and it all depends on some hacking abilities. I don't even go there because it's a sure recipe to have the whole Bluetooth thing stop working.

Check the Sony website for udpated drivers. I know the original drivers a few years ago had problems, but since then I remember reading that some had success using the latest versions.
