Bluetooth not working. Disabled? Or?


Bluetooth uses a number of drivers working together called the Bluetooth Stack. These need to be loaded in a specific order on boot up. Best way to fix is to remove the drivers and then using the hardware/device control remove the Bluetooth device, then reboot the machine and the O/S re find the device and load the drivers in the correct order. If any driver is missing it will be listed at this stage so have pencil handy.

how do i turn on my bluetooth on my emachines pc


Click the "Start" button, then choose "Control Panel," "Network and Internet" then finally "Setup a Bluetooth enabled device."

Power on the Bluetooth Hardware you want to connect to the computer. You must have some sort of hardware to connect to the computer, in order to enable the Bluetooth connection.

Click "Add" and the computer searches for any Bluetooth hardware in the area. Once it detects the hardware, select it and click "Next."

Type in the passkey for the Bluetooth hardware (found in the device's user manual) and click "Next."

Install any drivers now that came with the Bluetooth hardware. (Insert the driver installation CD that comes with the Bluetooth hardware, wait for the the installation wizard to load onto the screen, accept the license agreement, then click "Next" for the installation name and location and select "Install" to install the drivers.)
Choose "Locate and install driver software" if there are provided drivers. If not, click "Don't show this message again for this device" and click "OK."

hope this helps

Dear Goutam,
Welcome to Fixya Support.
Generally every bluetooth device comes with driver CD.Some bluetooth drivers may preinstalled or inbuilt in windows XP with plug and play support.If bluetooth device drivers not present in windows, you have to install driver manually from CD, supplied along with your bluetooth device.

After Inserting bluetooth it pop up a message"New Hardware found",if drivers are inbuilt, operating system directly installs driver for your bluetooth device.

After Installation Go to control panel of your PC click on bluetooth icon,then click on search for active devices, if your mobile bluetooth is on pc will show your mobile name,then you have to pair your pc and mobile by supplying same pass key on both devices. So it completes pairing. Now you can share files between PC and mobile.

After installing bluetooth driver you can install Nokia PC Suit software for better management of your mobile content.

I think it solves your problem

If you have any difficulty leave a comment,we were happy to assist you.

Have a Nice Day!
