    Connect phone to computer via bluetooth - problem


    Hi,

    Im trying to connect my Samsung Galaxy S III to my new Asus LX302L via bluetooth.
    Both have bluetooth vers. 4 and I have successfully connected other units to my phone earlier but now it doesn't work.

    I can "see" both units and they are linked together via password but that's it.
    After I linked them together, the status information on the computer says "Not connectet" for the phone. The same information is the phone saying about the computer.
    All drivers are up to date.

    I want to use my phone as a remote using "Unified remote" and I also want to play music via the phone out to the computer speakers. This I have been able to do with my old computer (windows 7) but now it doesn't work.

    What should I do?

    Best regards,
    David

    Hi falkenow And Welcome To Eight Forums,
    First Thing we have to check is see if the "Bluetooth Support Service" is running and set to "Automatic" by going to services.msc in the search.

    Thank you for the rapid replay

    "Bluetooth Support Service" wasn't set to Auto so I changed it but the problem is still there, can not connect.
    What can it be?
