I just got Bluetooth speaker for the laptop with windows 8. It paired successfully, but sound still comes thru laptop but not Bluetooth speaker. Speaker works fine with my iPhone.
In order to answer your question, could you please provide information on which Bluetooth speaker you have tried to pair? It does not only depend on your computer and its OS, even though it works on your iPhone, it's also a matter of how good Bluetooth speaker you have and how it interacts with your computer.
I happen to face the same problem in my Dell INspiron 15 R SE using windows 7 operating system. The bluetooth device connected paired successfully but no audio output to the speaker.
Bluetooth speaker device details:
JBL Flip 2.
This gets paired with my android phone successfully and no issues with audio. Tried connecting to JBL support, but they advised to connect with laptop manufacture support. FYI, my laptop is up to date with all windows 7 updates. Could you please help?
FYI, the respose from JBL support team below,
"You need to contact the laptop/computer manufacturer and ask them for A2DP & AVRCP Bluetooth audio profile drivers as the Bluetooth setup on your laptop/computer do not have them in it which is the reason why the unit is not working on your Laptop.
I hope it helps"
Thanks in advance.
