Bluetooth problems their solutions
Hi, i have heard from many many people that bluetooth is a major problem at times, often the only solution is to take the o/s back to a date previously when it worked. after having my own problems recently, couldnt find any help, and spending a night to get it working, i have decided to start a section, thread where everyone can share their solutions, ask for help, and keep it all together rather than all over the forum where its hard to find useful info. also if people have a problem, resolve it themself could you please post some information regarding it so someone with a similar problem has something to work from.
Bluetooth not working at boot:
I faced an issue where when starting the computer from being turned off the bluetooth dongle would show in device manager as normal, but the widcom drivers would show a red tasktray icon, and in the configuration show the bluetooth adapter as disabled. pressing disable then enable, or unplugging and pluging the reciever back in fixed the problem.
the only solution i could work out was to use devcon. using autohotkey i made a script and placed it in the startup folder. also with the bluetooth not working from initial windows boot xport opened up the config window asking to select the right com port. the script contained the following:
runwait devcon disable *pid_200a* (disables bluetooth adapter)
runwait devcon enable *pid_200a* (enables bluetooth adapter)
sleep, 10000 (pause for 10 seconds to give time for bluetooth software to load and enable the adapter before starting xport)
the delay could be less but i just left it at 10 seconds to be safe.
