Windows 7: Bluetooth Headset Won't Show up in Playback Devices

Bluetooth Headset Won't Show up in Playback Devices

Ok, so I recently bought a new Bluetooth headset. I paired it with my computer, and got everything working fine. The next day, when I resume my computer from hibernation, I find that it's not immediately working. I check the Playback Devices in Sound, and it shows up as "Disconnected". I right click, and attempt to reconnect. Nothing happens. I go to my Bluetooth Devices and remove the device. I pair it again successfully. I go back to Playback Devices, and it still won't connect, so I restart my computer completely, and it still doesn't work. I try reinstalling the driver for the headset, and it reinstalled fine, but now it won't even show up at all in Playback Devices, despite it being paired fine, and showing up in my Bluetooth Devices. Any help would be appreciated as to fixing this issue.

Thanks in advance.

Though I don't think it matters, the headset is a Kinivo BTH220 Bluetooth Stereo Headphone, exact specifications can be found here: Amazon.com: Kinivo BTH220 Bluetooth Stereo Headphone - Supports Wireless Music Streaming and Hands-Free calling: Cell Phones & Accessories

Perhaps your BlueTooth system dont have a2dp protocol (stack), you need this for music transfer bluetooth to wireless speaker. Check your brand of BT chip, and download drivers for your chip. PS Ms Win7 64 do not have the a2dp protocol, you must find by other vendor.
