By Sophie Luo  Driver Error   28 Comments

If you’re on Windows 7 and you see the error message saying No driver found after you pair up your Bluetooth devices, you’re not alone. Many Windows users are reporting this problem as well. But no worries, it’s possible to fix. 

Here are 3 fixes for you to try. You may not have to try them all; just work your way down until you find the one works for you. 

Method 1: Update Driver Manually
Method 2: Update Drivers Automatically (Recommended)
Method 3: Use Microsoft Mobile Device

1: Update Driver Manually 

One of the first things you do when you see notification like this is to update your Bluetooth device drivers. 

You can do the update via Device Manager, Windows Update, or go straight to the manufacturer support website. But you should only do so when you are certain about what you are doing. 

2: Update Drivers Automatically (Recommended)

If you don’t have the time, patience or computer skills to update your drivers manually, you can do it automatically with Driver Easy.

Driver Easy will automatically recognize your system and find the correct drivers for it. You don’t need to know exactly what system your computer is running, you don’t need to risk downloading and installing the wrong driver, and you don’t need to worry about making a mistake when installing.

You can update your drivers automatically with either the FREE or the Pro version of Driver Easy. But with the Pro version it takes just 2 clicks (and you get full support and a 30-day money back guarantee):

1) Download and install Driver Easy.

2) Run Driver Easy and click Scan Now button. Driver Easy will then scan your computer and detect any problem drivers. 

3) Click the Update button next to a flagged USB driver to automatically download and install the correct version of this driver (you can do this with the FREE version).

Or click Update All to automatically download and install the correct version of all the drivers that are missing or out of date on your system (this requires the Pro version – you’ll be prompted to upgrade when you click Update All). 


3: Microsoft Mobile Device
