I'm having trouble installing Nokia BH-100U on my Windows 7 PC (x64). I wanted to use it as a wireless headset for Skype. Currently I'm stuck at the step where the device should be automatically installed by Win7. It doesn't find the appropriate drivers and shows the following message:

And this is what I get after selecting both Headset and Handsfree telephony services:

Naturally, the headset doesn't appear in audio devices list.

I tried deleting/removing it and reinstalling again, and the result is still the same as the first time. My usb-bluetooth dongle for PC can handle a PS4 controller, so it shouldn't be the cause. I also tried installing the headset on my netbook which has a built-in wireless module, but with the same result as on desktop PC. And I tried installing it on the WM6.1 smartphone, which worked just fine. Still, I'd like to find a way to use the bluetooth headset with a Win7 PC.

There doesn't seem to exist a separate installation of a "Bluetooth Peripheral Device" driver or anything. It's supposed to be found automatically, but it's not.

I also tried installing a Windows Mobile Device Center which didn't help. There was also a suggestion to get a similar thing intended for Vista x32 but it didn't even want to install on my Win7 x64.

  • Click the "Properties" button where you should be able to find detailed information about the devices. Can you look for a "Hardware ID". This will tell you precisely what the missing device is and a Google search may give you clues as to what drivers are needed :)

  • Thanks, but it didn't really help. The hardware id is for generic bluetooth radio devices. Dec 9, 2014 at 19:41
  • Try downloading IVT BlueSoleil BlueTooth: I've read this: blog.thepcmechanic.org/?p=74 see if it gives you any progress

  • Try this article on how to add the missing headset profile to the default Microsoft stack. As a long shot you could try this driver.

  • @harrymc the second link's driver worked perfectly! You could post that as an answer. Dec 9, 2014 at 21:58

The problem was fixed using the drivers from the article Nokia BH-105 Driver for Windows 7, which in this case worked also for the Nokia BH-100U.

had problems making the device talk to my Windows 7 (64 bit) because of driver issues, windows tries to install the drivers but they do not work. Download the driver for nokia bh-105 headset below , unzip it and browse to the folder when searching for driver on local drive. Worked like a charm without any issues. Now have bluetooth enabled headset that will work with Skype, Yahoo or Google voice/call etc..

Download Nokia BH-105 Driver for Windows 7 64 bit.

Added 32 Bit drivers as well for Nokia BH-105 in case someone is using Windows 7 32 bit still.

Toshiba has built the generic drivers for almost any bluetooth devices. You can download it here- Toshiba Bluetooth Stack

I was having problems with my Bluetooth headset until I updated the drivers with SlimDrivers. It found new drivers that worked with my device.
