How can I update the Bluetooth HID Device Driver?

2011-03-25, 1:20 AM

Hi-

 

Can anyone tell me how to do it? I´m trying to pair a Microsoft Bluetooth Notebook Mouse 5000 with a Lenovo T400 running Windows XP Pro with SP3 on it, and with all the latest Windows Update components installed on it  too, with no luck. The mouse is working, took it to the shop to return it, but worked on a laptop running Windows 7, and the bluetooth on my laptop is also working, since it pairs nicely with my cell phone. Tried pairing a Logitech mouse and that´s when I realized the problem might be the driver. I´ve tried updating the HID driver with the device manager, but doesn´t work, nor can I find it on the Microsoft site to download and re-install it. Please help!

Thanks,

Enrique

Download the Bluetooth driver from the T400 driver matrix:
http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?lndocid=MIGR-72858

I have the same mouse with my T400 and it works fine.

 

Also, make sure the mouse is discoverable (light flashes alternating red/green on top) first.

when you open the bluetooth add device window & push the mouse pairing button does it not show? I have that same mouse I didn't need anything to pair it except a working bluetooth radio windows loaded the mouse drivers after pairing

Actually I did a repair installation from C:\DRIVERS\WIN\TPBTooth and it did the trick, the Bluetooth HID Device Driver reinstalled succesfully. Unfortunately it didn´t solve the issue with the mouse, it still doesn´t pair although it is found by the laptop. and yes, it is in discoverable mode, light flashing green and red. What OS do you have on your T400?

Thanks, but it doesn´t. It does refer to a KB article that solves connectivity probles with SP2 (KB883258), but can´t find one that refers to SP3.
