Windows 7: Can't connect Bluetooth Headphones to Windows 7. Error code-0x80004005

Can't connect Bluetooth Headphones to Windows 7. Error code-0x80004005

These are the bluetooth headphones - Creative 51EF0450AA001 WP-300 Wireless Headphones: Amazon.co.uk: Electronics

I bought a cheap USB bluetooth dongle to enable my PC to connect to my bluetooth devices and these headphones don't work. My PC pairs fine with my phone so I don't think anything is wrong with the USB. It discovers the headphones when I try to add a bluetooth devices and recognises them as headphones but when I go to add the device I get this error:
"Adding the device failed resulting in an unknown error. The reported error code is:0x80004005."
I've had a look and I've read a few things about Windows 7 not supporting A2DP but I don't really understand what to do about it.
Any help would be great, thanks!

It worked and is now paired! Never though that would work, thanks so much!

One problem, It says
"Device Driver was not successfully installed.
Bluetooth Peripheral Device - No Driver Found
Bluetooth Peripheral Device - No Driver Found"

And no sound is coming out the headphones when I try to play music, watch a film etc.

Where do I find drivers since it was some cheap USB dongle off eBay?

Thanks again!

EDIT: Got the drivers, it's found the make and model but still no sound. If I go on the sound mixer and change the device from my speakers to my headphones there is still no sound but there is also no options to control the sound of Winamp or Chrome like this is when my speakers are selected.

Thanks!

go into device manager right click on the device you want to update and click on update drivers.
