I have a Manhattan Headset w/ Bluetooth and a HP Laptop with Bluetooth.  I have them sinked and "supposedly" working together but I can't get any sound to go to the headset.  I can't seem to get my laptop to reckonize it as a headset.  I am hoping to simply listen to music/video wirelessly from my laptop.  I can't seem to find my way around Vista as I could XP.  Anyone got any suggestions, hopefully this is an easy fix... Thanks

I dont think it is vista, I have an asus (built in bluetooth) and pantronics bt stereo headset, works fine, however previously I had a compaq v6000 series running vista on the plantronics headset and found it quite difficult to set up. If the laptop is detecting the headset it is a matter of going into the control panel and redirecting the audio output to bluetooth, it took me serveral attempts and diffenent configurations to get it to work, I found that after changing a setting it wouldnt take affect till a reboot. I think the difficulty was with the HP as the asus was very straight forward and setup was almost instant

What does your Bluetooth Device Manager show ? I have Dell Bluetooth Headset and My Bluetooth Device Manager shows me like this,



So, when I have my headset switched on, it detects it and I can connect to it and listen to audio.

Have you installed proper drivers for your headset ?

It would be worth checking out what does your Bluetooth Manager shows
