Ever since formatting my laptop (Dell Lattitude D820), I’ve been trying to get my Bluetooth working. Although XP SP2 has bluetooth support built in, it’s pretty lame and doesn’t support the headset profile, which means I can’t use my bluetooth headset with Skype.
The Dell D820 comes with a Dell Wireless 350 card, with the Bluetooth component manufactured by Toshiba. Unfortunately, their Bluetooth stack isn’t digitally signed, and it’s a bit flaky. It used to work before, but not anymore. After a few hours of idling, it causes my machine down the blue screen of death route, moaning about an error with tosrfusb.sys.
Initially, I thought this might be a memory problem, and took Jeff’s advice, using both Prime95 and Memtest86+ to check my hardware, neither of which revealed anything strange. The hardware is fine, and this is definitely a software problem.
I’ve tried uninstalling and re-installing, without any joy – the blue screen of death still appears, so for now, I’ve resigned myself to the fact that I can’t use my Bluetooth headset with Skype. Not until Toshiba release a new version or Microsoft sort out their act and add the bluetooth headset profile into their bluetooth stack.
