    Hello all,

    So I got a brand new pair of wireless headphones and tried connecting it with my computer which did not have a bluetooth card adapter so got one of those Bluetooth USB adapter by manufacture "Cambridge Silicon Radio Ltd." I do not understanding what is going on because I cannot set my headphones as default playback device as it shows disconnected

    Any help is appreciated.

    Thank you

    I would uninstall the adapter, restart the PC and try a new install.

I was watching a TV show in my headphones, plugged it out for about an hour, plugged it back in during which time my Dell Inspiron 15 would have gone to sleep about 4 times..
