    So i plan to post it here hope someone will eventually notice me.

     

     

    I am facing the same problem with BCM 2045 where the driver won't install

     

    I need help here with my bluetooth device, which is known as "BCM2045"

     

    I googled and search many forums. Now i came to here hoping to get a solution to my problem.

     

    (1) Problems :

     

    Bluetooth icon at tray showing red color even though the device was already enabled. The device was also activated by pressing Fn+F2. Each time i right click on that icon and clicked 'enable bluetooth radio', I get a bluetooth service error message asking me to 'activate bluetooth using Fn+F2 or On/Off radio swith'. (The bluetooth and wireless LED light is turned on the bottom of my dell laptop Inspiron 6400)

     


    Solutions tried:

     

    1. Restart computer in safe mode and deleted the bluetooth known as "BCM2045" in device manager. Restarted and windows did scanned for new hardware which is the bluetooth device. Reinstallations failed with the Error message (1)

     

    (1) Error Message Saying :

     

    BCM2045

     

    Driver with the inf constructed for windows 95 or later (as what i remembered)

     

    2. Restart computer in safe mode and deleted all the USB host controllers and USB root Hubs in device manager. Restarted and windows did scanned for new hardware which were all the USB plugged in devices and contollers and ofcourse the bluetooth device 'BCM2045'. Reinstallations failed too with the same Error message (1)

     

    3. Downloaded driver from Dell support "R127314" driver for 'Wireless 355 Bluetooth Module (Bluetooth 2.0 + EDR)' and Installed. Restarted computer. Problem (1) still occur.

     

    4. Run window troubleshooting for that driver but it did not help.
