bluetooth? How? Where?


Activate the Bluetooth functions of your Compaq laptop to connect your computer to external devices such as mice, keyboards and smartphones without the aid of a wire. Bluetooth technology allows devices from different manufacturers to exchange data, communicate and share files despite differences in operating software. Bluetooth antennae can cause a significant battery drain, so they are usually turned off by default. Turn on your Bluetooth to start searching for available devices in range of your computer.

Click "Start" and type "wireless" into the "Start Search" field. Click the "HP Wireless Assistant" icon in the list of results. Click the "Turn ON" button in the "Bluetooth" section to activate the Bluetooth antenna for your Compaq laptop.

bluetooth cannot detect any bluetooth device


Normally, two Bluetooth devices must be paired before they can exchange data. The term pairing usually means that two devices are exchanging protected passkeys. Once paired, all information sent over the Bluetooth link is encrypted and will only be able to reach devices that are authorized to do so by the pairing process. In certain instances it may not be necessary to conduct the pairing procedure. For example, when exchanging business cards between two mobile phones it may be too cumbersome to pair with a password. Usually there is a setting in the device, in which you can set a lower level of security.
