Hi my laptop has the Bluetooth logo and I have two services one named Bluetooth handsfree support and Bluetooth support service. I have tried to download a few drivers but it doesn't work.
I have recently acquired a. It's great, but I can't get Bluetooth to work. I have enabled Bluetooth for the wireless switch in the BIOS. However, whenever I try and install the Bluetooth driver from the CD I get the message: Activate Bluetooth using the Wireless Switch. There is only a cancel button on this dialog.
There is no Bluetooth icon on any function key, and I have tried switching the what I assume to be the wireless switch (the switch which controls wireless Internet, on the right side of the laptop) to on and off positions to no avail. What is the problem?
Head into Device Manager and check to see if the bluetooth drivers are installed. I'm guessing you are using Windows 7, so go to the stat menu, right-click 'Computer' and press 'Manage'. This will open the Computer Management window, from here click Device Manager on the left coloumn. There should be a Bluetooth Radios drop down menu.
If that is there and there are no question marks next to the items, it means the bluetooth drivers are installed and it should be working. You should also see some bluetooth items under the Network Adapters drop down.
If you cant see the Bluetooth Radio's drop down, it may be because the drivers arent installed. If that's the case, the radio should be listed somewhere down the list with a question mark next to it. Go to the manufacterurs website and find the drivers for the bluetooth module and that should fix it.
