Or it's paired to the pad. Some things won't break the pairing or pair if the thing it's paired with is nearby. Also, if the device is showing, I also have to head to the Control Panel, Speakers and select it as the audio output device.
Tell me about what's in the Control, Panel, Sound, Playback and does the BT speaker have the GREEN CHECKMARK.
Got a Bose Soundlink 3 Bluetooth speaker for Christmas. Paired beautifully with our Asus laptop at first, but suddenly will not work. Appears on the Devices list on the computer and icon appears in menu bar but no audio source will come through. Works fine with wife's iPad, so it is a laptop issue. Things I have seen seem to point to needing to remove and reinstall driver for the speaker. Scared to do this. Suggestions?
