Question

Bluetooth

I went to Toshiba web site and downloaded Bluetooth stack and installed it. I now have a Bluetooth icon showing on my computer, but the computer still cannot find any bluetooth items, I have mobile phone and the speaker; it still says No Connection. Windows support says go to Control Panel, select Hardware and Sound then Add a Device. There is no Hardware title and under the Sound Title menu there is no option to 'Add a Device'. So much for Windows support!!
In control panel Bluetooth Local COM it says the Bluetooth device is not ready. Both speaker and mobile phone bluetooth are on. I have run out of ideas now. Although whilst I was on the Toshiba site, as it was so incredibly complicated and time consuming to get to the downloads, I downloaded everything I could see that might relate to the Bluetooth, just in case there is more needed!

That shows the Bluetooth software items

But I don't see any Bluetooth hardware.

It's a shame you seem to be hiding what laptop this is. My guess is it's the
Toshiba Satellite L850-1P9

Go to page 170 at https://support.toshiba.com/support/staticContentDetail?contentId=3438836&isFromTOCLink=false and see if you can turn the Bluetooth on. If it's off then the stack won't work.

In fact there was never a need to install that software if this laptop came with Bluetooth but as it stands, the Bluetooth is turned off or doesn't exist in this model laptop.

I am sorry, I thought I had. Its a Toshiba Satellite Pro C850 - 1ER
I have had it for five years. I looked at the Start Menu today and there is a list of bluetooth stuff under TOSHIBA

The list of stuff was the software components.
