Bluetooth Dongle not working

Hi, I have an itech Bluetooth Dongle 1.2 and I have been using it for 1yr now. This morning when I tried to use it, an error appeared on the screen: the usb has malfunctioned or something like that. Does that mean my bluetooth dongle is already broken? Is there a way I can still have it fixed?

Try it in another USB slot.
Even when I move my dongle I must reinstall it.

Hi CCRomeo, thanks for the quick reply. I already tried using a different usb slot and reinstalling it but it’s still giving me the same error message.

try another one some cost less than $5 if you search .

Do you have any preferred brand in particular?

Cirago works well for me.
