So just installed Windows 7 RTM (v 7600) on a Lenovo X200s. I have a Plantronics 510 Bluetooth headset that I use for VOIP. I followed the connecting instructions (just as I've successfully done with other Lenovos) and gone through 1 failed attempt (which happened on the RC version 7100 too). Windows 7 happily recommends I download the newest Broadcom Driver
I download this driver install kit and when I attempt to install it I get an error immediately. (this worked fine for me on my old X61s)
"The program cannot upgrade your software. Please contact the manufacturer of your bluetooth device for support."
The problem with this is that Plantronics relies on the built in BT driver to work. I had a challenge on my older X61s (discovered it wasn't installing due to internal firewall issues) but knowing that, I took the X200s home and tried the install at home, off of corp net.
I've been able to connect successfully to other Bluetooth devices (like my mobile phone) but the BT headset won't take any drivers
. Broadcom's "support" is anything but supportive.
I've uninstalled (through device manager) the BT Peripheral Device & scanned for hardware changes. Still get the same failure.
Anyone have any suggestions? Has anyone run into this problem also and found a solution or workaround? Thanks in advance.
