I have inbuilt bluetooth in my laptop (running Windows 7 ultimate) with HP/widcomm drivers
installed. I have Sony HBH-DS980 A2DP capable stereo bluetooth headset. I want to use it with my laptop as stereo headphones (listening music) + internet telephony headset (voice chats, skype etc). First of all it was pain to connect the this headphones with laptop. It took me many many many tries to pair this correctly. Now that its connected, I cant get it to make a connection between laptop and headphones. I tried pressing the button on headphone to initiate a connection, and also tried to make connection by pressing the connect button in headset's bluetooth control window with no results. However it does connect once in a while (I would say less than 10% of the times). The same setup used to work fine when I had vista. What is wrong with Windows 7?
I tried going back to a previous version of drivers that HP released before current ones, and even tried formatting/reinstalling windows 7, but same result. I checked headset's properties; under services I tried selecting/deselecting Audio Sink, Handsfree telephony, Headset, Remote Control, Remotely Controllable Device, but same result. I Any ideas or tips? I am just so frustrated I cant think of anything else to try..
