Ok so i bought the new Harmon Kardon-Onyx Studio model of bluetooth speaker and I want it to play via my laptop. I'm using a Gateway P6831fx laptop with windows vista 32 bit OS.

 

The speaker is recognised by my laptop and is "paired"  and appears if I select the "show bluetooth devices" option.

 

The problem is I have no sound and cannot figure out how to make this thing play via my laptop...????

 

If I go to the bottom right hand side and right click on the volume icon, then go to playback devices the bluetooth speaker does not appear.

 

I tried to update my bluetooth driver and it appears that is is current and does not need to be updated.

 

Any help or ideas would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks in advance.....

 You might try the Inland bluetooth adapter.  That's what I'm using with my bluetooth speaker & it's working fine on my Windows 7 laptop.

 

Good luck.


Everyone with a computer should back his system up to an external hard drive regularly.  :thumbsup:

Right click on the speaker icon in the system tray, select playback devices. In the playback device window right click and check both Show disabled and disconnected devices. Does anything related to bluetooth show?

Yes I did that and nothing else appeared.

Maybe someone on the board can confirm if Bluetooth is backward compatible. From Wiki you can see the different versions used. Click on the bluetooth device in Device Manager and select Properties. Under the details tab select Hardware ID's in the dropdown box. Copy and Paste the first line in your next post. There may be an updated driver by the bluetooth device manufacturer.

Thanks for posting the resolution to your problem. I was wondering, did you purchase the micro or standard size version?

I got the Rocketfish Micro Bluetooth Adaptor from Best Buy for about 20 bucks. Works well but it takes up one of my usb ports so I also bought a 4 hub usb.
