Default how to connect a bluetooth headset to a laptop?


Is it possible to connect a bluetooth headset to a laptop?

I have a Motorola HS850 and the laptop is a Dell Latitude D400 with a
functioning BT module. I have no problem connecting my phone (Nokia
6820) to the laptop using BT and Nokia software to back up the data.
Also the headset works fine with the phone.

btw, the Dell is running "My Bluetooth Places 3.0.1.804" c. Widcomm.
The hardware is Dell Truemobile Bluetooth Module with the same version
number.

Thanks for any leads.

I have a Motorola HS820 and a DLink DBT-120 using Widcom drivers.
That works for Skype and Ciscophone, as well as Windows audio.

Turn your cellphone off, or disable the Bluetooth. Turn the HS850 off,
then hold the button until it blinks, and then turns steady. At that
point, you should "view devices in range" in My Bluetooth Places.

The Motorola Headset should appear. A double-click should prompt you for
the PIN code, which is 0000. Once you pair, you don't need to repeat that
step. Power on the HS850, but don't force it into pairing mode.

The HS820 should emit a double-beep every couple of seconds, indicating an
incoming connection. Press the button like answering a call, and you
should now be an audio device to Windows.

control-panel-sounds would let you select the Bluetooth Audio as the
default, which might already have happened. Some other sound program, like
Skype, lets you select which audio device you want to use.

start-programs-accessories-entertainment-sound recorder should let you do
some testing.
