Recently acquired a used laptop, hp Compaq nc8230 XP Pro sp2, bluetooth Bought a bluetooth mouse and keyboard and thought I was all set. Nope. They worked fine for a day or 2, now the keyboard won't connect although the laptop bluetooth finds it, lists the pin #, but still won't connect when I press enter. Says Ihave to press the connect button. But that doesn't make the connection. And when the mouse goes to sleep, or I shut it off, then try to get it going again, it's supposed to wake up just by clicking any button. Nope again. More and more I have to restart the computer to get it to connect to the mouse. So, started researching. Found there's a number of different mfg's and each one has it's own drivers! And I can't just download and install the mfg's drivers for my devices, that would be too easy! They don't support "embedded" bluetooth devices even tho they made them. I have to go thru some complicated rigamarole doing something or other with hp's configuration, something like overlaying MS's bluetooth whatever over it, and a whole long list of steps that mostly only an IT engineer would understand. Where does it say there can't be a standard for bluetooth with everyone using the same setup, software, and drivers!? At least the "old fashioned" plain old wireless devices just plain worked when you hooked them up. Irregardless of who made them. Any helpful tips in basically plain English appreciated, but after what I read tonite, - - anybody want to buy a new bluetooth keyboard and mouse?
