Bluetooth quits?

HP Recommended
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

My Bluetooth connection seems to quit for no reason.  I connect the same broadcast device to my cell phone and it never quits?

@dphenry157

Thank you for posting on the HP Support Community.

 

Don't worry as I'll be glad to help, however, to provide an accurate resolution, I need a few more details:

  • Did this happen after a recent window or software update?
  • Have you made any hardware/software changes?
  • Have you tried any troubleshooting steps?
  • What is the product number of your device? Use this link to find it: http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c03754824

While you respond to that, let's try these steps: 

  1. Make sure the device you want to connect to is discoverable and within range of your computer.

    For example, if the device is a headset, make sure it is on and set to Bluetooth. If the device is an Apple iOS or Android mobile device, go to the Settings menu and make sure Bluetooth is enabled and discoverable.

  2. In Windows, search for and open Bluetooth and other devices settings.

    NOTE: If Bluetooth & other devices does not return in the search, your computer might not support Bluetooth.
  3. To turn on Bluetooth, on the Bluetooth & other devices tab, toggle the Bluetooth setting to On.

    Turning on the Bluetooth toggle

  4. Click Add Bluetooth or other device to start searching for the device.

    Turning on the Bluetooth toggle

  5. Click Bluetooth as the kind of device you want to add.

    Turning on the Bluetooth toggle

  6. Select the Bluetooth device you want to add from the list.

  7. If prompted, enter the PIN, and then click Connect. If a PIN does not display, enter 0000, a commonly used default PIN for many Bluetooth devices.

    Turning on the Bluetooth toggle

  8. Immediately check for an authorization message on the device you are connecting to and confirm the message or allow access.

    Example of a Bluetooth message when attempting to connect to a Windows 10 computer.

  9. Follow the on-screen instructions on the computer and the device to complete the pairing process. A confirmation message displays when the devices are paired.

    NOTE: If an authentication error displays, too much time has lapsed. Move the devices closer, and then try to pair them again.

    Turning on the Bluetooth toggle

For more information about Bluetooth, see the following HP support documents:

Hope this helps! Keep me posted for further assistance.

Thank you for posting back.

 

I appreciate your efforts to try and resolve the issue. I would suggest performing system factory reset will put the computer back to the original factory settings in this way all corrupted and outdated software will be removed. 

 

While doing the recovery there is an option to backup your personal files. If you have not previously done one now is a good time. 


Restoring Files that were Backed Up Using HP Recovery Manager (Windows )You can also contact HP support for assistance. They can remotely access your system to help alleviate difficulties: www.hp.com/contacthp/

 

The HP Cloud Recovery Tool allows you to download recovery software to a USB drive. You can use the downloaded recovery image file in order to install the Windows operating system. 

Hope this helps! Keep me posted for further assistance.
