1. I haven't tried it with my Windoze computer yet (because I rarely use my Windows computer), but it does work with my cell phone, so I'm going to make the reasonable presumption that something about the new firmware is incompatible with something in LM 18.1
2. Here's my computer's information...

Ok, now let me explain (though you've no doubt guessed the problem):
I have this UE Boom 2 speaker that is great. I'd never done a firmware update to it, so I decided to do it the other day. The next time I used it with my laptop, the sound was really tinny. Very thin sound. No bass. Nothing but mid-range and highs. I was listening to a podcast, so I decided to not mess with it at that time. I assumed it would be an easy fix.
This morning I tried to sort it out and I'm stumped. Here's what I did:
1. I went into Blueman and removed it from the list of Bluetooth devices. Then I went through the steps of searching for it and pairing it. It paired up, but the speaker never gave an indication that it was paired and if I go into sound settings, I don't see the speaker listed under devices as I did before.
2. I've tried uninstalling everything, rebooting everything, turning it off and then back on, etc.
3. I found a post about a similar problem on an Ubuntu forum, but the solution that worked for that guy didn't work for me.
Any help is appreciated.
