Today wires are becoming a thing of the past as wireless technologies, like bluetooth, are helping us increase connectivity. Windows 7 is efficient at using bluetooth technology, however, Windows 7 bluetooth problems can prove a hazard in connectivity issues. The Windows 7 has had a number of problems with bluetooth devices since its beta testing began. Both the Windows Vista and 7 operating systems had issues with a number of devices and the problems they had typically stemmed from driver compatibility. However, it takes some time for manufacturers to catch up with the drivers they are currently producing to reach compatibility with the latest Microsoft OS For Windows 7. This generally causes users to revert to a previous version of the driver and this could often times cause a problem with the device and Bluetooth.
The issues when bluetooth in Windows 7 does not work properly and tips to resolve can be listed as follows:
- Connection Problems with PC

In this menu list you will see a list of drivers, from which you can choose the adequate driver for the device to be connected to the PC.
Bluetooth Device Problems
During the boot up of Windows 7, a bluetooth device might no longer work correctly. In these situations the computer might stop responding when you restart the computer again.
