Bluetooth uses lots of power on your computer delete and reinstall drivers , reboot. As for ez b its very sensitive to having weak AA batteries , try running it from a power supply for testing or use a better lead acid or other high performance rechargable battery. If the battery being used can't support current demands it Browns out a split second and Bluetooth module drops the connection.

like DJ says use windows bt sofware
uninstall software that came with bt dongle,
then use add bt device wizard
it's how i got two ports for ez b
then connect with lower com port
saying that i'm still having a hard time trying to get connected *stress*

Have you tried connecting on both ports, or just the one?

bborastero you are a complete star:) While I was using the windows BT to make the conection, I still had the bundled (toshiba bluestack) software on the machine - once I uninstalled it as you suggested all came right - thank you so much! I don't know if I can help you at all with your connection issues in return, but i have found the connection using the bluetooth dongle I bought from E Z robots givea a strong signal all the time, while my onbaord dell BT seems much more variable...might be worth a few dollars as a try if you are struggling?
