    I recently got a usb bluetooth adaptor and headset for my desktop. The adaptor loads fine and the headset is recognized by windows, but when I go to the properties of the headset (in Sounds) and hit the test button, nothing happens. No sound.
    I got this setup to use googletalk but have not been successful with that either.
    TIA

    Check your mother board manual.Make sure ALL the wire connections are correct to the mother board.Also in;Headphone Properties @ the bottom you will see Device usage;use the Device (enable).

    Uh, a bit confused here. What wires are you talking about?
    And, in the sound properties, the box is checked to use this device.

    I had a similar problem sound and headset with xp but noticed that the sounds and audio devices in the control panel were not set correctly. Might be worth having a look to see that the audio sound recording and playback are set correctly

    Thnx for your reply Alan. I've checked all settings several times. Playback is set to play through the device and so is recording. But when I try to setup speech recognition for the micro, the computer doesn't hear anything.

    You didn't say what type of operating system you have so.In windows 7 right click on the speaker icon in the system tray.Then click on;Volume Control Options.Their you will see Headphones option check this box.Click on apply then ok.

    Just another thought under the control panel sounds and audio, is your bluetooth headset for sound recording and playback showing the particular headset in the drop down box. Also what is the brand of headset.
