Windows 7 (64bit), Bluetooth, Portege R500

Has anyone had success getting their Bluetooth module installed and working in Windows 7 (64bit)?

Re: Windows 7 (64bit), Bluetooth, Portege R500 (halfway resolved)

Windows Action Center sent me to some German site for the Toshiba Bluetooth device.  The software I downloaded had the file name v63001T_20081226_x64.exe and was 34,171,881 bytes.

 

It was the first device driver that actually completed its installation successfully, and several Bluetooth devices appeared in my Device Manager.  Moreover, after a reboot I got the logo in the taskbar.  I was excited.

 

Much to my dismay, it caused my USB drivers to self-destruct.  I went from having a perfectly happy USB subsystem to where every time I reboot the computer forgets how to use the USB.  So not only can I not use USB devices but the fingerprint reader won't work and the Bluetooth is "not ready" and etc etc.

 

So I open the troubleshooter and EVERY TIME I REBOOT I have to spend fifteen minutes letting it re-install drivers for these things.

 

Why is it Windows is now forgetting the drivers for these devices?
