    Laptop Can't Connect to Devices through Bluetooth - HELP


    I've been able to connect my Windows 8.1 laptop to my phone for some time. But since yesterday I haven't been able to. The phone and laptop detect each other. But they don't connect. I tried to uninstall the bluetooth driver which automatically reinstalls at boot up on the laptop.. But that doesn't work. What should I do?

    You'll need to look into the Bluetooth setting you have that somewhere different computers have different ways of accessing the Bluetooth setting.

    Make/model of bluetooth would also help.
