In some cases laptops dont always have built in bluetooth. but have the buttons displayed to make it seems as if they do. (this generaly is for later expansion)

My boss at work has the same issue with her laptop but instead its with the WIFI button.

The problem might be that your bluetooth drivers arn't installed yet. the best option for this would be to go to your manufactuers website and download the drivers from there.

Why bluetooth doesn't work


kindly mention your laptop model no. with such problems
you must have a fn button on the bottom of your keypad
hold the fn button and the the bluetooth icon button associated with the function keys ...
this combination works as on / off button for your bluetooth

or else see if your laptop has a button on the side or rear of the laptop with the wireless or bluetooth picture with it (green - on /Red -off )

Acer Travelmate 5620 bluetooth button won't turn on


Hi,

Do you actually see the Bluetooth device in device manager? Normally if it's not turned on it won't appear in device manager. The next thing I can think of is that if the Bluetooth module was not turned on when you loaded the drivers then they won't work.
And lastly the module may have come lose or unseated from the slot. Are you absolutely 100% sure there's Bluetooth hardware on this laptop? Is this built-in or a USB dongle?

If built-in have you turned it on? Acer uses a slide switch to turn Bluetooth and Wireless LAN on and off.
The first thing you probably need to establish is whether the laptop has a Bluetooth module fitted. Plenty of Acer laptops support Bluetooth in some markets and not in others and actually have slider switches to turn Bluetooth on/off but don't have the Bluetooth module fitted.

Does the unit say that it supports Bluetooth on the sticker attached to the front of the laptop? The models that have Bluetooth typically have this listed on these and will also list it on the packaging that came with the laptop that lists its specs. If it doesn't mention it odds are it's not fitted.
Acer laptops have the Bluetooth buttons, but not always have the Bluetooth Module. Check the bottom white sticker for a Bluetooth symbol under the laptop. If you do not see it, there is no Bluetooth. Also, if you press/move the Bluetooth button, and the light doesn't turn blue, there's no Bluetooth module with your laptop (only the button), so your laptop did not come with Bluetooth.

Also, you can add Bluetooth, but you need to be able to take the laptop apart to a certain extent, such as taking off the cover (top portion), keyboard, and maybe the speakers. The Bluetooth should have a 4pin, 6pin, or 8pin Bluetooth Cable connected to a Bluetooth module. You need to purchase the Bluetooth module, and install it, but you need professional help for that.

In case your laptop won't have a Bluetooth module fitted. The switch doesn't mean anything, it's present on all Acer laptops whether they have Bluetooth fitted or not.

You can buy the module as a spare part from Acer and fitting it is easy however buying a cheap USB Bluetooth dongle will be a cheaper option.

Thank You for contacting Fixya.com

ACER Aspire 7535G, can't get the bluetooth to work.


First of all check that you really DO have a BlueTooth unit. Acer uses the same chassis for models with and without Bluetooth, so the button being there doesn't mean necessarily there's something under it.

For example this one 7535G on eBay does not have a BlueTooth.

http://cgi.ebay.it/NOTEBOOK-ACER-7535G-824G25MN-250-GB-4-GB-LX.PCE0X.086_W0QQitemZ230389757718QQcmdZViewItemQQimsxZ20091019?IMSfp=TL091019235001r2963

If you do have bluetooth:

Check the Bluetooth is active in the BIOS, and if you have a single button model ("one button to rule them all") check the button configuration - there should be an Acer hotkey utility somewhere to do that. Very often, the button is set to control only one device between WiFi, optional internal cell modem, and BlueTooth. Normally that is WiFi. Set it to "Both". This, I repeat, if you DO have a 'single button' device.

Also, check you have the original Acer drivers. I once mis-installed a set of wrong Widcomm drivers without realizing it, and almost went crazy troubleshooting it.

How to enable bluetooth


First of all you need to connect bluetooth device to the laptop because most Acer laptops don't usually come with bluetooth device but they have the software/driver that will make bluetooth to work on it. So, I will advice that you get an external bluetooth device connect it to your laptop, the bluetooth application will make the bluetooth device to work. Thanks
