To do with Lock on.Air combat Simulation. whilst trying to install same, I keep on getting a message, saying.Abnormal Program Termination. no idea how to get to grips with this, has there is no other...


A method for warning abnormal connection between two bluetooth devices allows a user to adjust a distance between two connected bluetooth devices and to take an average obtained from several quality values read at that distance as a comparison value. Thereafter, a CPU of any one of the devices gets link quality value periodically by a host controller interface (HCI) command. The CPU will send out a warning message to mention the user of the bluetooth device when the quality value is lower than the comparison value, i.e. the connection is abnormal. And then, the user can handle it immediately, for example, pulls the two devices closer to lower the probability of the connection termination. The invention can reach the abnormal connection warning requirements for different users, and allows different users to have abnormal connection warning establishment for different distances.

An onboard device abnormal connection notification system is provided with: onboard devices (3a, 3b) which is connected to an in-vehicle network (5); a monitor means (1) which is connected to the in-vehicle network (5) for monitoring an abnormality in the state of connection between the onboard devices (3a, 3b) and the in-vehicle network (5); and a notification means (2) which is connected to the in-vehicle network (5) to notify an abnormality in connection of the onboard device (3a, 3b) based on a demand from the monitor means (1).

My Samsung 4 will not pair with my halo ear candy Bluetooth


14 TIPS FOR SOLVING BLUETOOTH PAIRING PROBLEMS

Bluetooth depends on both hardware and software to work properly. So if your devices can't speak a common Bluetooth language, they won't be able to connect.
In general, Bluetooth is backwards compatible: Bluetooth devices supporting the Bluetooth 4.2 standard, announced last year, should still be able to pair with devices using, say, the ancient Bluetooth 2.1, launched back in 2007.
The exceptions are gadgets that use a low-energy version called Bluetooth Smart, which works on a different protocol than older, or "Classic" Bluetooth devices. Bluetooth Smart devices are not backward compatible and won't recognize (or pair with) older devices that support Classic Bluetooth. (For example, an old Sony Ericsson phone sporting Bluetooth 3.0 won't be able to connect to a Bluetooth Smart device.)
However, if a device supports Bluetooth 4.0, it can potentially recognize both Bluetooth Smart and Classic. If it does, it's officially labelled Bluetooth Smart Ready.
Gadgets that commonly use Bluetooth Smart include personal health gadgets such as fitness bands or heart-rate monitors. These gadgets will only pair with a smartphone or tablet that also uses Bluetooth Smart - or are Bluetooth Smart Ready.
iPhones running iOS 7 and newer should be Bluetooth Smart Ready as should Android phones running 4.3 or newer, Windows Phone 8.1 devices, and all BlackBerry 10 devices. Ensure your phone is running the latest version of its operating system - but if your device isn't new enough to run relatively current software, you may not be able to pair it with that fitness band.
Devices also come with specific Bluetooth profiles. If Bluetooth is the common language connecting devices, you can think of a profile as a dialect associated with a certain use. For example, you probably aren't going to be able to connect a mouse and a camera because a camera doesn't support the Human Interface Device Profile. But if both a mobile phone and a wireless headset support the Hands-Free Profile, you should be able to pair them.
However, if the pairing failure is a matter of user error, there are steps you can take to get your devices happily communicating with each other.
What you can do about pairing failures 1. Make sure Bluetooth is turned on. You should see the little Bluetooth symbol at the top of your phone's screen. If you don't, go into the settings to enable it.
2. Determine which pairing process your device employs. The process for pairing devices can vary. Sometimes, for example, it involves tapping a code into your phone. Other times, you can just physically touch your phone to the device you want to pair it with. Or in the case of the Bose SoundLink, you only have to hold down a button on the speaker to pair it with a phone.
If you're not sure how to pair a device, refer to its user guide; you can usually find one by searching online.
3. Turn on discoverable mode. Let's say you want to pair your phone with your car's infotainment system so you can enjoy hands-free calling, texting and navigation. First, go into your phone's settings and tap on Bluetooth; doing so makes the phone visible to the car. Then depress the buttons on your car's infotainment system, usually on the steering wheel or center stack, to get it looking for the device.
Once it finds your phone, the car may ask for a numeric code you need to confirm or input on your phone. After you do so, the devices should be paired. Keep in mind your phone or your car may only stay in discoverable mode for a few minutes; if you take too long, you'll need to start over.
4. Make sure the two devices are in close enough proximity to one another. While you wouldn't think someone might try to pair an iPad with a keyboard if the two weren't sitting right next to each other, it's probably worth noting that you should make sure any devices you're trying to pair are within five feet of one other.
5. Power the devices off and back on. A soft reset sometimes can resolve an issue. With phones, an easy way to do this is by going into and out of airplane mode.
6. Power down likely interferers. Say that faithful Bluetooth speaker usually connects to your partner's smartphone instead of yours. If you're having trouble pairing your phone with the speaker, it could be because the speaker is trying to activate its usual connection. Some older devices are very simple. They just try to connect with the last thing they paired with. If a Bluetooth device was previously paired with something else, turn off that other gadget.
7. Charge up both devices you're trying to pair. Some devices have smart power management that may turn off Bluetooth if the battery level is too low. If your phone isn't pairing, make sure it and the device you're trying to pair with have enough juice.
8. Delete a device from a phone and rediscover it. If your phone sees a device but isn't receiving data from it, sometimes it helps to start from scratch. In iOS settings, you can remove a device by tapping on its name and then Forget this Device. In Android settings, tap on a device's name, then Unpair. After removing a device, start at step 1 on this list.
9. Get away from the Wi-Fi router. Another potential obstacle to successful pairing is interference from devices that use the same spectrum, such as your Wi-Fi router. "Wi-Fi has been designed to cope with this, but it might not be a good idea to have your devices directly on top of the router," Powell says.
10. Move away from a USB 3.0 port. "Interference from USB 3.0 is also possible," Powell says. Newer laptops, for example, often have the higher-speed USB 3.0 port, so if the connection isn't happening, try pairing your Bluetooth gadgets away from the computer.
11. Make sure the devices you want to pair are designed to connect with each other. Whether it's a headset, speaker, mouse, keyboard, camera or something else, your device has a specific profile that spells out what it can connect with. If you're not sure, check the user manual.
12. Download a driver. If you're having problems pairing something with your PC, you might be lacking the correct driver. The simplest way to figure this out is to do an online search for the name of the device you're trying to pair along with the word "driver."


13. Update the hardware's firmware. Some automotive audio systems recently wouldn't pair with the iPhone 5, for example, because the Bluetooth drivers in these systems didn't work with Bluetooth 4.0. If you're not sure how to get the latest firmware for your hardware, check with the device manufacturer.
14. Keep in mind that not all wireless devices use Bluetooth. Alternatives include the Wireless Gigabit specification, Wireless HD, ANT+, ZigBee, NFC as well as Wi-Fi Direct. These other technologies typically won't work with your phone, tablet or PC without some kind of additional hardware.

I hope this guide has helped you with your Bluetooth pairing problems.

My bluetooth isn't work...my windose is 7...when i turn bluetooth of my cellphone and my laptob my cellphone found it but the laptob bluetooth couldn't find it.


Hello, the reason your laptop cannot find your cellphone is becaus the cellphone's bluetooth is not in discovery mode. You will need to put the cellphone into discovery mode. To do that, open your bluetooth settings, and choose discovery mode or something like that. Then have the laptop look for new devices.

Thanks for using FixYa!

Bluetooth won't work and even won't turn on with win7


- Download the 'Windows Mobile Device Center which you can download it from
this works for both Vista and Windows 7. I've tried it on both.

Install the downloaded software but it may not look like it worked on Windows 7 PCs. Vista automatically configures the settings on the bluetooth devices but for those who have Windows 7, here are the things you should do:

- Go to 'Device Manager' from 'Control Panel' -Or- just right-click on Computer Icon and choose 'Properties' and then click on 'Device Manager'.

- You'll see an 'Unknown Device' named 'Bluetooth Peripheral Device'
- Right-Click it and click on "Update Driver Software" -Or- anyway you find it easy to bring up the Update driver window.

- Click "Browse My Computer for Driver Software" button.

- Click "Let Me Pick from a List of Device Drivers on my computer".

- Select 'Bluetooth Radio' from the list if it asked you to select and then in the next window, it will show a list of drivers with Company Names in one list and Drivers in another. In the Company List choose 'Microsoft Corporation', not only Microsoft.

- From the drivers list there may be one or more drivers with the name "Windows Mobile-Based Device Support" with different driver versions. Select one or the latest.
- Ignore any warnings and keep pressing next and then Finish at last. If all goes well, the last screen will show the message that device driver is successfully installed.

Now, after manually updating the driver for your bluetooth device, in 'Device Manager' when you click on 'Bluetooth Radios', it should display one more item which will say 'Windows Mobile-based device support'.

There are few more things that you want to pay attention to. If you have already added the device in your 'bluetooth device list' that didn't work, then remove the device and add it again. After you add it, you might need to restart the computer if it gave you a connection problem error message.

I hope this will help you guys fix your bluetooth problem with Windows 7.Rate me if the message was helpfull.

Thanks

How can i transfer pictures and videos from htc hero to computor


You'll learn how to transfer file (music, photos, videos, ring tones, documents, etc between your computer and your mobile phone.

jQuery('.intro .thumbnail').each(function(i,e){ jQuery(e).find('img').one('error',function(){ jQuery(e).remove(); }); }); Difficulty: Easy Instructions Things You'll Need:
  • A bluetooth enabled cell phone.
  • A computer with either a built in bluetooth module or an external bluetooth dongle.
  1. jQuery(document).ready(function(){ jQuery('#jsArticleStep1 span.image a:first').attr('href','http://i.ehow.com/images/a02/4f/q0/phone-computer-using-blue-tooth-1.1-800X800.jpg'); }); Bluetooth Dongle

    Ifyour computer does not come equipped with a built in bluetooth module,you'll need to purchase a bluetooth dongle. These can be picked uponline or in a retail store and average between $10 and $30.

  2. Plugthe bluetooth dongle into your computer or if your computer is equippedwith an internal module, activate it (this is sometimes accomplished bya switch on the side of your notebook computer).

    Some bluetoothdongles will be automatically recognized and windows will automaticallyinstall the drivers for you; however some devices may require thedrivers be installed manually.

    Now you'll need to activatebluetooth discovery on your computer. This step may be differentdepending on the drivers used but should be similar to the following.

    * Look for the bluetooth icon in the windows system tray.

    * Right-click this icon and select open bluetooth settings.

    * Click on the Options tab and select "Turn discovery on".

  3. Activateand configure bluetooth on your cell phone. Setup will be differentdepending upon the brand of your phone. You will need to refer to theowners manual of your particular phone for specifics but I will covergeneral guidelines.

    * Locate the bluetooth settings menu in your phone.

    * Turn bluetooth ON.

    *Give your phone a name (you can use anything you like, but keep in mindthat other bluetooth users can see this name) this is the name thatwill identify your phone when you or others are searching for nearbybluetooth devices.

    * Set your bluetooth visibility. This shouldbe set to "shown to all" or "visible". You may wish to turn thisfeature off when you are not utilizing bluetooth.

  4. Now you'll need to pair your phone and your PC. This can be done from either the phone or the PC.

    From the PC (Windows XP):

    * Right click on the bluetooth icon in the system tray and select open bluetooth settings.

    * At the bottom of the devices tab, select "Add"

    * The Add Bluetooth Device Wizard appears, select "My device is setup and ready to be found" and click the Next button.

    * The wizard should find your device, if it doesn't, refer back to step three.

    * Select your device and click Next.

    *When prompted about a passkey, choose "Let me choose my own passkey",enter a passkey of your choosing (I like to use 0000 for ease butwindows recommends an 8-16 digit passkey). Click Next.

    * At thispoint the computer will attempt to connect to the phone via bluetoothand if successful your phone will prompt you for a passkey. Enter thesame passkey you entered into the computer and press OK.

    * If you are prompted to accept a connection request from your computer, select Yes.

  5. Nowthat your phone is paired with your computer, you are now ready tobegin transferring files. We will use a picture for this example.

    *Right click on the bluetooth icon in the Windows system tray and selectreceive a file. This lets your computer know to expect a file transferfrom a bluetooth device.

    * Again all phone models are different so this next step will vary.
    Locate an image file on your cell phone and select send - via bluetooth.

    * The phone will then search for bluetooth devices in range and display them along with already paired devices.

    * Select your computer from the list of devices.

    *The data file will transfer over to the computer and windows willprompt you to enter a file name and choose a location to save the fileto.

    * Thats it!!!

Tips & Warnings
  • Allmobile phones are different and some bluetooth drivers are different.Refer to your phone's owners manual for specific phone settings.
  • It is sometimes a good idea to turn off bluetooth on your phone when in crowded areas for security reasons

How to activate Dell vostro bluetooth


1) Install the bluetooth driver provided for your system. It will ask you to activate bluetooth by pressing fn+f2 key (this won’t work).
2) You manually have to install the software for the driver.
Note: some of you may have already installed the drivers but just cannot start the connection. So there is a problem in the software and not the driver.
For installation of the software follow these steps.
3) Go to your driver installation directory (ex. C:\dell\drivers) then you find which driver you installed for your bluetooth.
4) Then you find your system you are running (a 32 bit or a 64 bit) it will written as win32 or win64.
5) Then you find the installation file. Then install the application and it will be all ready once again.
P.s. don’t forget to turn your Bluetooth adapter on after you install the software.
