McAfee Secure sites help keep you safe from identity theft, credit card fraud, spyware, spam, viruses and online scams
   

DriverUpdate's purpose is to provide easy, one-click access to all of the latest drivers for your computer. This saves you time and prevents the possibility of installing an incorrect system driver, which could potentially cause a system crash. All drivers offered by DriverUpdate may be available free of charge from manufacturer websites. DriverUpdate costs $29.97 for a one-year license, which enables you to download any missing or out of date drivers DriverUpdate finds.

Drivers are updated frequently as changes to existing technology are implemented or new technologies arise. The Bluetooth device must be able to comply with the changes and recognize new technology in order to cooperate with other devices. Without the updated driver, your Bluetooth device may not function with new technology or comply with updated platforms. Drivers can be difficult to find and once they are found, can be tricky to install. Most drivers must be manually extracted, installed and registered with the Windows registry. Without the knowledge to do this, the driver may not be installed to the correct location and the Bluetooth device will fall further and further out-of-date, ceasing to comply with any standard of technology.

To learn how to update your Bluetooth device driver manually, continue reading below...

Before you can update your bluetooth device, you need to know who manufactured the bluetooth device you are trying to update. To find this information, you need to open the device manager:

To begin... Click Start

  1. (Windows XP or earlier)

  • Click Control Panel

  • Click System

  • Click the tab titled Hardware

  • Click the Device Manager button

(Windows Vista/7)

  • Type into the search field: device manager

  • Hit ENTER

You should now be in the device manager.



Look under these categories for your Bluetooth device: Bluetooth Radios, Network Adapters

Your Bluetooth device may show up in both categories. We want to update drivers for both if they are available. Updating the device under the Bluetooth Radios category will typically update the device on all levels.

Once you have found your Bluetooth device within device manager...

  • Right-click the Bluetooth device

  • Select Properties from the options

  • Looking in the General tab you should be able to see the Manufacturer. Make a note of this.

  • Download the latest driver from www.broadcom.com

  • Click Download Now

  • Accept the download and Run it once it is finished. An installer for the driver will launch.

  • The installer will guide you through the installation process and tell you to reboot once it is finished.


You now have the most current driver for your Bluetooth device. You can refer back to this guide should you ever require instruction in this matter again, or you can download DriverUpdate and have the entire process automated for you.
