Well; you may have to see what it labeled the manufacturer is again and go to the site for that company to see if there are any updated drivers that may work for it.

Manufacturer's support dept. claims these devices do not need driver by themselves. PC and other Bluetooth devices (like smartphone)should be able to connect with the headphone through Bluetooth.

Well, that's what seemed to have happened with Vista. W7 just cannot do it.

I am proudly glad to announce my problem with SY-BT Headphone is over. (Thanks to many advices and comments from W7 Forum members).

But it took some work. Having messed up with mindless installation of drivers and software from HP support site, I decided to start fresh. I re-installed system image from the recovery discs I created. Then tediously installed all the requisite updates from WU. Fully updated, I went back to HP site and installed ONLY available drivers not related to Bluetooth that are newer than what already are in Dev. Mgr. (there were only two as opposed to more than 15 I had previously installed carelessly, thus installing actually so many OLDER drivers...my bad).

Then with Bluetooth problem in mind I installed two : Realtek and Broadcom(3 years newer). ...both recommended for W7. Finally I installed one Integrated Bluetooth Module for Vista(because it seemed there was none for W7) guided by this advice from W7 forum member Fireberd:"Windows 7 is basically "Vista improved", not a complete different OS, like going from XP to Vista or from Vista/Win 7 to Windows 8. All the Vista drivers work with Windows 7".

And just as Brink always says: "That's it"

It's weird how those to OS's, Vista and 7, are so closely linked. I think Windows 7 is as good now as XP was years ago. It is a great OS. But, like Firebird said. it is Vista improved. I went from 7 to 8/8.1 and lost a bunch of functionality with the ACER laptop I came on the site to complain about. I, like you, installed a plethora of drivers, trying to install my wireless LAN, my VGA, the modem, and the card reader. I troubleshot the driver installations and chose Windows 7 compatibility. Practically nothing worked correctly. I went back, installed with Vista compatibility, BAM! They all work now, sans the card reader, and I don't know what to do about that thing.

But, like BRINK says: That's it!

Nearly three weeks of W7 and I still miss Vista. I am still not convinced W7 is an improvement. I think it is Vista, streamlined. Many features of Vista are more elaborate, to a fault, with cross-over redundancy.

Basically, W7 removed redundant features of vista. That's it. The only improvement I know so far is IE11, Vista being stuck on "obsolete" IE9.

W8 is actually a mind-boggling OS, especially for IT's. Unfortunately, I really do not have much use or interest in most of its features for what I use PC for. To me it's like owning a Maserati and driving it only in Manhattan... 25 MPH, tops.

That's a bet, on the Maserati! Windows 8/8.1 is tablet software. If they had a version that didn't cater exclusively to the swipe and tap crew, it could be a good OS. As far as Windows 7/Vista, I fought Vista all the way through SP2, so I saw it get better and better, until it became useful. Anything short SP1 and it's a dog..., out for a poop stop!

IE11 is not on my list of tings I like yet. there are too many sites that I use constantly that it doesn't support. It's still kinda beta anyway, so it'll get better.

Many sites urged me to get rid of IE9...advised me to get FF or Chrome or IE11. Thing is, I see no difference between IE9 and IE11. BTW....IE11 is no longer Beta.

Not beta? half of the sites I visit for personal business don't work on it. This thing is a dog, and it has no bite. Sheesh!!!

IE11 has been released as non-Beta in November last year. It has been an automatic update for W7 thru WU.

I thought the only diff between Vista's 9 and W7's 11 versions was slight increment in speed. But it seems I am wrong. The speed difference apparently is more substantial:

"According to Computer World, the IE11 has 29 percent more speed than Google's Chrome 30 web browser software, 32 percent than Mozilla Firefox's 25 browser, and 26 percent than Opera's Opera 17 softwar

This announcement from CW did not compare 11 with 9, but considering that IE9 was just at par with these mentioned other browsers speed wise, you can deduce by inference how much speedier 11 is than 9.
