I have an Acer Aspire and I'm trying to get a Bose mini

Customer Question
I have an Acer...

I have an Acer Aspire and I'm trying to get a Bose mini bluetooth speaker to connect. I've been using it for months.... now it won't connect. So in calling Bose they said to remove the speaker from the control panel, but it won't delete. How can I get it to remove from my laptop so I can reload it?

Technician's Assistant: What Operating System (OS) are you running on your Aspire?

Windows 10

Technician's Assistant: What have you tried so far with your Aspire? Have you installed any updates recently?

I think so. Usually when it asks me to I do it.

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer, I look forward to assisting you today. You can try to disable it in Device Manager first, then see if you can uninstall it.

Ok. I went to Device Manager, and did not see it listed. So I clicked on "View" and show hidden devices. Found the speaker, and uninstalled it. Is that right?
Computer technician: Dan, Computer Support Specialist replied 4 months ago

That should work as well. Do you have the most current drivers for your speaker?

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
I have no idea. I'm not computer saavy, so I don't know what a driver even is.
Computer technician: Dan, Computer Support Specialist replied 4 months ago

Okay. Have you checked in Control Panel to see if it is still listed there.

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
it's still there. That's where I went earlier and right clicked, remove device. However, it says "remove failed" and it's still there.
Computer technician: Dan, Computer Support Specialist replied 4 months ago

Can you try to remove it again please.

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
I did it again, and it said "remove failed". Then says "paired". So it's saying it's paired with the device, but it's not. My cell phone is paired with the device, and I can hear my cell phone through the speaker.
Computer technician: Dan, Computer Support Specialist replied 4 months ago

Okay. Restart your computer and see if the speaker will re-install.

Ok. That will disconnect this conversation, though.
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
What if it's still not working? Do I have to pay the $5 again?
Computer technician: Dan, Computer Support Specialist replied 4 months ago

Just comeback to www.justanswer.com and sign in.

My son came home and said he couldn’t find the driver, and the computer runs slow anyways, so he’s resetting the PC. Thank you for your assistance.

My pleasure!
