Windows 7 support has ended

Get Windows 10 to continue receiving support.

Upgrade now

Bluetooth headset does not work with Windows 7 - Device is detected.

I have a Dell XPS 1530 which had Vista 32 bit Running. I recently upgraded to Windows 7 Ultimate. Ever after that the DELL BH 200 Bluetooth headset does not work with my laptop.

The bluetooth adapter and the device is fine since I am able to search and find all bluetooth devices including my headset. However I get a yellow exclamation mark on the headset under the devices. The headset can be paired with other devices like my mobile and works fine.

I have already tried updating the drivers and reinstalling the device and adapter from the Device manager. We have a similar configuration on my brother's computer and it works fine .

Another thing to look at, would be which stack is being used.  I know from personal exp. that some devices will only work with the Toshiba stack, vs the MSFT stack.  Do a search and see if anyone else is using a different stack with these devices.
