I am a software developer in Johannesburg, South Africa. I specialise in C# and ASP.NET, with SQL Server. I have, in some way or another, been involved in software development for about fourteen years, but always learning something new. At the moment that is WPF and MVVM.

nothing is ever trivial solving a problem like this, thanks, but my phone is always right next to my laptop when I use it to connect.

@harrymc, it's set to to always show. I've checked that multiple times. I'm going to borrow a phone and compare the robustness of the link with that phone. Otherwise I must suspect my laptop's actual BT hardware.

@Harry, I only have the one BT device, my phone, which I do actually also suspect, but I've never known Nokia to give problems in this area. It is however a lower end phone, so maybe.

Yes @harrymc, I found the latest BT driver package on my machine, it had recently come down via a Windows update. I tried a manual install of the driver as well, to no effect. I still lose the BT connection at random times and need to restart.

Yes, it is still under warranty, I would just like to avoid taking it in and being without it for any time if possible.
