I am using Widcomm version 3.0.1.912 with the internal HP BT module on a x1000 notebook running WinXP.

I don't know why after each reboot, the previously paired devices are needed to be 'repaired' again before they can work. So I have to keep setting the previously paired devices in the discoverable mode, type in the pairing code, pair them, and only then the devices will function again.

If I just do a disconnect with the devices, they will be automatically connected if they are turned on again. The problem only surfaces when the notebook is rebooted.

Has anybody here run into similar problems?

Sounds like a registry problem on your notebook. IF this were an external USB adapter, I'd sugest a routine that worked to other users before. Not sure if this would work with an internal module - unless you could disable it through the BIOS, which I'm not sure you can.

What worked before was creating a new user with Administrator rights, restart and log as the new user, remove the adapter, removed the software, reboot, log in again as the new user, install the Bluetooth software, reboot, log in again as the new user, plug the adapter, configure Bluetooth and reboot loging with your normal user account.

As I said, not sure what would happen with the internal adapter, since this would trigger the "found new hardware" routine when the driver is removed, causing problems and having to image the disk again.

Not sure I'd do this, or go directly to re-image the system...
