I have an Alienware 17X with Windows 7 it uses Broadcom I can not get any headset to work it will pair show device and in the audio you can set it has default click test and the indcatior bar goes up and down but nothing comes. When you right click the conect is gryed out. The divces I am trying to use worked fine on Vista. Does anyone have an answer I have been trying everything my little pea brain can think of with no luck

It seems Windows 7 requires Bluetooth headsets to have their own drivers as well. Have you got any drivers for this headset? Visit the manufacturer's website for that.
