Trying to pair a bluetooth headset and having all sorts of trouble. I have installed the Intel package, but still have issues. At one point I did have the audio working, but now I can't even get that to work. I was never able to get the mic up and running.
In Device Manger, there are 2 'Bluetooth Peripheral Device" items. Windows update does nothing for them. At one point they were listed as Bluetooth Remote and some other Bluetooth device, but neither device could start. (error 10) I have 2 Bluetooth radios listed. (Intel and the MS Enumerator)
I am able to pair the headset, but it just doesn't work after that. Spent almost all day trying to get this to work, ready to pull my hair out. Hopefully someone here can help me.
When I do a 'connect' in Bluetooth Device Control, I get 'Error connecting to headset. Please retry this operation'.
And FWIW, I have a T430 here that I connected to with no issue.

Here are the hardware IDs on the Bluetooth Perihperal devices if that helps.
Oh and I'm running Windows 7, not Windows 8.

I experience the same issues when I upgare from Windows 8 to Windows 10 for ThinkPad T430s. Those issues should relate with "Bluetooth Driver (Atheros, Broadcom) Drivers". After I downloading and installing the "Bluetooth Driver (Atheros, Broadcom) for Win 10 Drivers" (listed in the following URL), those issues are fixed. Maybe you could try to find the driver for your Windows version.
