Windows 7: Need help with Belkin mini Bluetooth adapter F8T065

Need help with Belkin mini Bluetooth adapter F8T065


I just acquired a Belkin mini to use with my headphones.

Step 1 is to install the BT adapter. on the support website, it says that because I use Windows 8, I shouldn't have anything to install.

But things don't happen like they're supposed to. it seems that when I plug the USB adapter, something happens but then nothing else. So I install anyway the setup program on the CD. again when installation is over, nothing happens, no desktop icon, no special tray icon.
At this point I should point out that my ACER predator desktop PC has an inbuilt Bluetooth device... but for some reason it too can't seem to connecto to headphones, hence the purchase of the belkin adapter. So in my tray, there already was a bluetooth icon.

So what I did, was check the device manager to see if it recognized hardware. And apparently there is a problem, but this is where my skills end and where I hope to get some help from you guys.

--> sorry windows is in French
--> the second row under bluetooth section has a yellow exclamation mark and it says that this device could not be started (code 10)

Many thanks in advance

Did you try disabling the onboard bluetooth device and then restarting the PC?
