Generic Windows 7 Bluetooth Device
There is a chance that Windows 7 won’t be able to find the correct driver for your Bluetooth device.
Manually installing the device by selecting the correct driver shouldn’t take long, however. This can be done by going to Start and right-clicking Computer. Select Properties and then Device Manager - your attached Bluetooth device should be listed as Unknown Device.
One option at this stage is to try the driver disc, but as you should have already found by now that this won't work, we will instead attempt to install a driver already included in Windows 7. Finding a suitable driver might require some research on your part, such as tracking down the originator of the Bluetooth device. Many manufacturers sell hardware under their own name and sell it on to be relabeled.
Right-click this item and select Update Driver Software… > Browse my computer for driver software > Let me pick form a list of drivers on my computer. In the Common hardware types list, select Bluetooth Radios, and click Next.
Here you can select the suitable manufacturer, or if this isn’t visible, the GenericAdaptor. Click Next to proceed with the installation of the device driver.
