X61T//Windows7//Bluetooth refuses to discover nearby bluetooth devices.

[ Edited ]

 

Hi all:

 

I recently purchased a second-hand X61 Tablet. It shipped with Windows Vista and still has about 75 days left in the warranty.

I installed Windows 7 Home Premium on it, but now I cannot connect to my Nokia cellphone.

 

With Vista, I could connect to it very easily.

But in Windows7, I go to "Add a device" and it just keep searching for a device without showing my cellphone.

 

I have done extensive googling/binging and the following are the things I have tried:

 

- Both Bluetooth services are up and running and set to automatic

- My cellphone is set to bluetooth ON and radio discoverable

- My cellphone can see the computer. But cannot pair with it.

- I have installed various bluetooth stacks so now the 'Bluetooth Peripheral Device" driver not found error, is not an issue.

 

I am at a wits end with this problem. I am actually debating going back to Vista.

Anyone here who can help me with my misery?
