My Toshiba Laptop was setup to create automatic "System Restore Points"...I simply went back to the system restore point one day prior to installing the Iogear Bluetooth software: (my computer>accessories>toshiba tools>system restore).
I now have my Windows XP Welcome Screen back - -any changes or program installations I've made after the restore date will need to be reinstalled or reapplied, but I didn't have much on the laptop anyway, since I had just got it!
I would suggest backing up any files or data you may want to save before doing the system restore on any computer (maybe on a flashdrive or sd card, someplace other than the harddrive - then you can select what you want to install - excluding the culprit that caused you the problem). The system restore option will backup certain system files - notifying you of the new filenames after the restore has completed.
If the system restore process doesn't work, you do have the option of 'going back' to the last system settings, or trying another 'System Restore Point'.
If any desktop or laptop pc has a 'System Restore' option, I highly recommend turning this feature on....it may prevent a lot of headaches and problems!
One suggestion - BACKUP your system somewhere before making any major changes to your system...especially before installing new applications, or even before changing your system profiles or connectivity options...so many things can't easily be 'undone' !

Won't install


As of this date, there is no Windows 7 driver available for the F8T016. You may want to consider buying a new Bluetooth adapter.

I bought an Iogear Bluetooth 2.0 USB Micro Adapter, model GBU421, which installed flawlessly and automatically in Windows 7.

I need a vista compatible driver for an IOgear gbu311 bluetooth wireless adapter


GBU311 does not have a Vista driver. Because it could only support the Win 2000, Win ME, 98SE, and XP. It does not support Win Vista and later versions.

If you wish to have a Bluetooth adapter that is compatible with Vista and Windows 7, you need to have the GBU421 Bluetooth 2.1 USB Micro Adapter. Here, check the link:

Thank you and good luck!

Toshiba A200 Bluetooth XP problem (originally Windows Vista)


Make sure that you installed both the driver and a bluetooth manager software like : Bluesoleil (http://www.bluesoleil.com/) or Widcomm. Windows Vista has an In-Built manager while Vista doesn't have so you have to manually install one. If you dont know how to contact me at any time.

Adding bluetooth to toshiba laptop


Well,I'm not really an expert on Bluetooth, but let me try...

Which version of Windows are you running? If you have Windows XP SP2 or above, the Microsoft Bluetooth stack should be installed on your system. First make sure that the Kensington bluetooth adapter is compatible with the printer and the OS. From what I heard Canon sell a separate Bluetooth adapter for about $80 for this, but I'm not too sure.

Secondly, ensure that the built-in Bluetooth Stack or Software has the required Profile for your printer.

Next, put your printer in "discover" mode (see printer manual for more info ). Use the Bluetooth Connection Utility software that came with the built-in Bluetooth stack to "discover" the printer. Follow the instructions by the Bluetooth stack manufacturer on how to pair and connect Bluetooth devices to your built-in Bluetooth stack.

Please also see THIS article. although it is meant for the Logitech DeNovo keyboard, it can be used for any Bluetooth enabled devices. (Just replace the DeNovo wit your printer in the article.

But mainly, make sure that the Kensington adapter is compatible...

Hope that helps..
