Hardware Drivers :: How To Get BT Working On Win 8.1 Dell XPS 1340
Sep 14, 2013
I was able to install Win 8.1 on my laptop (Dell Studio XP 1340).
Resolved here: Windows 8.1 RTM installation fails on Dell XPS 1340
I had to disable Bluetooth in BIOS to be able to install the system.
Now with the system up and running I would like to use Bluetooth. The device is not listed in Device Manager and no driver was installed. When I enable it in BIOS system will not start, it crashes with error [URL]....
I found the driver which should be installed. So with Bluetooth still disabled I tried to install it. It's in exe so I can't really get the driver files. The SW asks for Bluetooth to be activated by a switch. I have a button which normally turns Wifi+Bluetooth on/of .. but with BT disabled it does not work, obviously. And the only option is 'Cancel' : [URL] ....
I have a Dell E5530 using windows 8.1 Been using laptop for 5+ months. For the first time today, I clicked the Camera panel and received msg
"Connect a Camera".
Ran Dell PC diagnostics, no errors were found. I do not have a Imaging Device folder (that stores the Webcam) in Device Manager. Installed Dell Webcam Central, but when launched, I get msg "Please plug in a supported device" I am not able to run this application either.
No keyboard or mouse by attempting to add safe mode with networking. What is UEFI? Where do I find this USB viewable option as I am connected by USB?
I went to set up (F2 at boot) > and then searched around for anything that relates to USB and found that USB is enabled and on high speed. Hope that is not it and I am missing something, because I still have no mouse or keyboard.
Keyboard and mouse are the ones that came with the Dell XPS 7100 system. I'll try different USB ports and report back...didn't make a difference.
I own a XPS L702X laptop purchased in 2011. Laptop has driver support from Dell for Win 7 and Win 8. But windows 8 drivers aren't working with windows 8.1 and i don't think Dell is in the mood to provide drivers for a laptop which is already 2+ years old.
So i had to collect drivers by myself. I have already got most of the native drivers from Intel/nVidia/Realtek websites.But not able to find the Quickset software. Currently using the one which was released for windows 8, and it gives error when i open the windows mobility center. And after installing, it doesn't remove the "Unknown Device" icon from device manager like it used to do in windows 8 .
Also need "ST Micro Screen Detection Sensor" driver. If i install the old windows 8 driver, it says incompatible with this version of windows.
I have just bought Dell XPS 12 Duo with Windows 8. I was used to working with Windows 7 and i have few VBS script which worked just fine in Windows 7. Now the same script would not work on Windows 8. How to resolve the problem so that i can run my VB Script.
I purchased a new laptop with Windows 8 about a month ago. SyncUP was included in the software. When I open any of my pictures I receive the message, "SyncUp has stopped working. A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available." I want to use this program, What do I do now?
I have a windows 8.1 dell laptop ,for some reason system restore is not creating points manually or automatically, when I try to make a restore point manually the working bar just keeps moving at the sane time though I noticed in the device manger a generic volume shadow copy entry will show up with a yellow mark beside it ,I have tried maybe 10-15 times to uninstall this and try system restore again ,but this keeps repeating itself,
I have also went into safe mode but system restore points can't be made under safe mode, I did the repository thing where I rename that folder to old and reset repository in safe mode ,same result .
I bought this particular computer for the Intel wireless display, but after upgrading (is it really an upgrade?) to windows 8 my WiDi is no longer working. I tried to install the latest drivers from Dell support but it tells me my platform is not supported.
I recently upgraded my new XPS 13 (L321X) to windows 8. Webcam central stopped working, It is getting detected in device manager. I tried installing the drivers again from dell site without any result. Whenever I open webcam it says close the other streaming video application to start video though I don't see any other video application going on in my system.
I'm using a Dell 3420 Inspiron 14 with windows 8. Everything was going smooth until last week when all of the Metro Apps no longer function, i don't know if it is caused by a windows update or not. They can't be opened at all, Windows Store also can't be opened.
I just bought a new computer with windows 8.1, and can find no way to disable my internet connection. This is a home computer, and I don't need or want it on all the time. Is there a way to disable it short of disconnecting the Ethernet cord?
I upgraded my laptop software to win8.1. My webcam in the device manager looks to the integrated camera but webcam is not working. I tested by Dell PC Diagnostics shows my webcam is installed and its picture from camera showed but windows camera app and all app don't show anything.
I installed Windows 8.1 enterprise on my Dell Inspiron 17R yesterday. Everything seems to be working great, except for one thing. I just noticed that pinch to zoom is no longer working via the touchpad. I came to rely on this feature quite a bit when running Windows 7. There are no issues in device manager, but under Mice it shows PS/2 compatible mouse instead of Synaptics touchpad. How to correct this and get my pinch to zoom back.
Since past few days WiFi is not working on my Inspiron N4010 laptop. I am able to connect to internet through LAN cable but with wifi it keeps showing the yellow symbol in the network icon in system tray.
And For Bluetooth , the icon is not getting displayed in the system tray. Even If I am trying to start it with BTTray.exe it still doesnt work. And Bluetooth adapter is off, how to make the adapter on.
I tried installing the latest drivers of network .....
I am having trouble with my USB 3.0 port.Whenever I plug anything (usb, mouse, portable hard drive etc) into that particular port, "Client Server Runtime Process" would use 100% of the CPU. However, when plugged into the USB 2.0, all seems to be fine.
my USB 3.0 ports are not working with my USB 3.0 ext-HDD. It's an ADATA Nobility NH13 I don't have any other USB 3.0 equipment to test, but the ext-HDD works perfectly on my laptop and on my TV as well, so it's definitely not the HDDs fault.
When I plug in USB 2 devices, they work perfectly and at maximum speeds. Even the HDD does work when connected with a USB 2.0 cable instead of it's own 3.0 cable.
This behaviour is present on front as well as the rear ports.
In the Device Manager there IS a USB3.0 driver:
Intel(r) USB 3.0 eXtensible Host Controller - 0100 (Microsoft) Universal Serial Bus controllers Generic USB xHCI Host Controller PCI but 0, device 20, function 0 This device is working properly
Today i turned on my G73JH today and my keyboard is not working, I have windows 8.1 and had to use the on screen keyboard to type anything in. The keyboard works fine when i press F2 to go into the bios and and can navigate around the bios no problem.
I have windows 8 pro in my desktop.When i started to run nfs mw 1 it opened but while loading for gameplay it stops working and windows says that there is a problem to work the program properly,so i will have to close it.I have tried for all compatibility mode but its still does not work.
I have a bluetooth module (Broadcom 2070) installed in my laptop.The hardware seems to be functioning fine (at least from Device Manager). However, when I go to Bluetooth Settings, all I see is this:
I'm not able to remove the Bluetooth Mouse there, and I'm also not able to detect any Bluetooth devices at all. I've even tried to use a Bluetooth dongle but to no avail. I've seen some suggested solutions to enable Bluetooth Support Services (which I have, and placed under Local Access), but this doesn't work for me as well.
I don't know why but my external hard drive isn't showing up when connected.. Windows makes the connection noise when I plug it in but it don't show up in disk management, device manager or anywhere else... If I plug it into a regular usb port it works fine... And its a usb 3.0 capable drive it worked before....?" I tried the new hardware wizard in device manager and didn't see anything... drivers all look fine....
I have just got a nearly new Toshiba laptop and updated to Windows 8.1. Since then I have been unable to connect any device to it via Bluetooth. It was able to see the devices and try to connect but as soon as it connected the connection was dropped and the devices reported failed to connect error. I reinstalled the Bluetooth driver with the latest driver from the Toshiba website and now the Laptop wont even see any devices.

I recently bought an Acer Aspire E laptop but accidentally damaged the hard drive a few months later and had to replace it. My friend knows a lot about computers and has a side business fixing them and works as tech support for a company and for his university, so he installed the new hard drive for me and downloaded most of the drivers and installed them and said he would get the wireless working later. He eventually came back a few days ago to finish it up and after he left, I realized the wifi STILL was not working.
I have an ethernet cable and the thing it plugs into here in my dorm room, and the wifi works fine when connected to an ethernet, but Christmas break starts in a few days and I have no way to connect with my ethernet cable at home. I have my old laptop that I'm currently using but it's shitty and it doesn't turn on unless it's connected to the power cord so I can't really take it anywhere.
I've tried redownloading and installing all of the drivers myself but it doesn't do anything at all and I don't know enough about computers to figure it out. I did see that there is a yellow triangle next to the network controller driver so I'm assuming it probably has something to do with that being missing.
