    As you are saying, having issue after installing XP SP2 so, firstly ensure that Service Pack 2 is installed on your system. Click on start button and select Run. Now, Type winver.exe and click Ok. Now, do verify that SP2 is installed. If you are able to see XP SP2 in list then PC is enabled bluetooth devices to make connection via PC. Follow the steps:

    -> In the Notification Area, right click on Bluetooth icon
    -> Now, open Bluetooth Settings
    *If you are unable to see icon on Notification area then type bthprops.cpl after opening Run Windows.

    -> Make sure that Bluetooth adapter successfully installed on your machine in order to use bthprops.cpl command. Click on Start then go to Run and type bthprops.cpl then enter
    -> Now, go to Options tab and select Turn discovery on check box
    -> Click on Apply and select checkbox to allow Bluetooth devices to connect to this computer
    -> Now, Click on Ok

    Hi,

    After installing SP2 in XP, there must have some infringements which disabled or corrupted the Driver file responsible for bluetooth responsiveness.

    First of all check and tweak the bluetooth setting by Right Clicking on bluetooth icon and observe the result. If your problem is solved okay, else,

    Use this method,

    ControlPanel > Hardware and Sound > Device Manager > System Devices > Bluetooth Bus > click on it and you will get a window that will offer you the option of deactivating existing bluetooth Driver. do that, later click on Update Driver option to install new Driver.

    This should solve your problem.
    Thanks.
