Windows 7: Can't Connect Bluetooth Headset - Nokia BH-503.

Can't Connect Bluetooth Headset - Nokia BH-503.

Hi
I have a bluetooth dongle from 'Enter Peripherals' . Specifications read that it works with win7 (no mention of the bit though 32 or 64?)
I have sony vaio all in one computer (Model VPCJ113FX/B) and I want to connect my nokia headset, model BH-503.
I have tried various options :
1 - I have connected the blue tooth device with usb.
2 - I have changed the computer in discoverable mode
3 - I have checked the device manager and bluetooth dongle is appearing without any issues.
Just to add, the headset is fully charged and after pressing it for few seconds once the blue light starts blinking, i try to connect it with my computer. the headset doesn't appear despite using 'add device' in the bluetooth window. my computer is able to detect other bluetooth networks though.

Pls help
Thanks

Was this bluetooth headset ever paired with any othe device (like a cell phone)?

If yes, then you need to reset the bluetooth headset so it can release the existing pairing with the cellphone. Then try to connect it to the PC.

Well perhaps can you try to pair it with a cellphone first just to confirm if everything works?
