Helping people with computers... one answer at a time.
Is it a driver problem? Or hardware? Or what? I go through a few troubleshooting steps to see.
Every time I reboot my laptop, it took so long to the load the Bluetooth driver and nothing worked before it was done loading. When I uninstalled the driver, everything works fine. Help me please! I've done almost everything, reinstall, uninstall, update, put out from startup... didn't work.
In this excerpt from Answercast #28, I look at troubles with a Bluetooth driver and suggest a few options.
There are two approaches to dealing with this:
That assumes that you don't need Bluetooth. If you don't need Bluetooth, then it's OK not to have the driver installed.
Otherwise, what I can only strongly suggest is:
It is very possible that it is simply a Bluetooth driver issue.
If that doesn't solve the problem.. what to do? Short of reinstalling Windows (which is kind of a crapshoot any way)? We really don't know if that's going to solve anything.
The only other thing that comes to mind is if you have an actual hardware problem with the Bluetooth interface. Unfortunately, that's the kind of a thing where there's no way that you or I are going to be able to diagnose it over the internet.
It's the kind of thing where you may need to get the technician to actually
take a look at the machine.
