    Hi. I am having trouble getting my Bluetooth adapter to work.

    • The drivers install fine on both Windows 7 Pro and Windows 8 Pro
    • The Bluetooth adapter is correctly installed on the motherboard (and should be working because it shares with the wifi card and I have wifi).
    • Windows update fails to find the drivers for the device
    • Windows acknowledges the presence of a SM Bus Controller but says the drivers are not installed correctly
    • Drivers were installed from the motherboard manufacturers website (http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=4166#ov)

    EDIT: The drivers on Windows 8 Pro don't actually install. Upon completion of the installation the installer then prompts me to reboot, I do, and when Windows starts up again I can install the drivers again as if they were never installed.
    Also, at the beginning of the installation Windows makes the device connected/disconnected sound, as if I it disconnects the Bluetooth and then reconnects it.

    This is really annoying me, I would like to connect my phone and tablet but alas cannot.

    Oh and there's all this stuff to help you guys. The Windows 8 is a fresh install from 30 minutes ago.
