I have a Nokia BH-501 stereo headset that I used to use with my Blackberry. I attempted to pair and use it to jam with my new XPS m1330 and while it pairs okay...I get no sound except for the laptop speakers. I know my laptop has bluetooth 2.0 and this headset is v1.2 but I thought it was backwards compatible. Help!

After you pair the two together, you need to go into the Control Panel and then into Sounds and Multimedia Properties. Click on the Audio Tab at the top and then click on the drop down menu under Sound Playback, and change that to either Bluetooth Headset or Bluetooth Audio (you'll see either one or the other depending on your headset)

Keep in mind you'll drain your headset's batteries very quickly using it like this.
