I have a Sony Vaio VGN-FW290J laptop with built in bluetooth (Broadcom Widcomm, Alps, something like that, some drivers
had the former name, others the last one). I use Windows 7 x64 Professional and it seems that the bluetooth doesn't work. After the fresh install (few months ago) it worked. Meanwhile, I didn't use it because I didn't need it. But today I tried to use it but it can't find my device (mobile phone). I tried with many device, but it seems that the bluetooth doesn't scan for devices. I can't also see it from other device (my phone doesn't see it). I tried three driver
versions but none of them does anything more than what I have described above. The install does all good, but after that, nothing work. I see the BT icon in tray, near the volume icon, but if I click on it, it appears an empty page scanning for new device forever. Neither adding a device, nor opening the settings worked. The "Allow new device to connect" is blurred gray, so I can't click it. If I uninstall the driver, Windows uses its own driver, but this does also not work.
I think it's not a driver problem, but a Windows one, since it worked some time ago. I don't know what to do. Can anyone help me?
Thanks in advance.
