I have a HP Pavilion dv7 and a Samsung SGH T-369 cell phone. I am running Windows 7 home premium 64 bit
When I had a Dell with windows 7 home premium 64 bit, my cell phone connected to it without problem through bluetooth. Now that I have my new system it will not connect with the phone. The computer sees the phone and the phone sees the computer, however, it halts during the install of the driver. At that point the install ends and i get the following message
bluetooth peripheral device doesn't have a driver
I have called Samsung as well as HP support. NO HELP. However HP support did come to the conclusion that the system I now have is running bluetooth driver 3.0 but my phone is running 2.0 I need a bluetooth driver 2.0 for my computer.
I don't understand this, if we have USB 2.0 and 3.0 drivers on our systems then why can't I find help for a 2.0 bluetooth driver?
I can't seem to find a legitimate site that has this driver. I have downloaded bogus stuff 3 times. (Yes I had to do a virus scan each time). I just want to find the darn bluetooth driver 2.0
Does anyone know of a legitimate site that would have such software, without downloading crap into my computer? Please oh please help me. Oh yes, BTW I have already been to HP support site, and Samsung support site. This driver seems to be something that must be protected by the department of defense, because no one seems to know about it or want to talk about it.
There has got to be a REAL bluetooth driver 2.0 out there somewhere. Please Please help me.

I was not able to get this to work for me, but the site seemed useful. I have just decided to email myself the pics and then save them to my computer. I am sorry I took so long to reply, and thanks for all your help and time. You are groovy. And oh yeah, I also found out it is my phone that is the problem. Not my notebook.
