Hello, I have a Desktop build with the components below. I have an issue where any USB Bluetooth dongle I use comes up with a driver issue. I have two different dongles (I thought the first one was defective) The strange thing is, the results are intermittent.
The main thing I am trying to connect is a pair of Bose QuietComfort 35 II. I can easily connect them to my iPhone, surface 4, windows 10 laptop. But when I try to connect to my desktop I get a variety of results:
Sometimes the Bluetooth dongle shows up as correctly installed, present with a driver issue, or not present at all.
Sometimes the headphones show up properly, sometimes they appear as an unknown device but still connect, sometimes they show up as an unknown device and fail to connect.
Sometimes the headphones connect properly, sometimes as a headset which doesn't sound correct, sometimes they connect once but not again after a restart/power cycle of the computer or headphones.
I can't find a pattern or repeatable fix/workaround so I'm looking for some advise how to troubleshoot this more precisely.
I have moderate technical knowledge, but not much experience with Bluetooth or windows 10.
