This model should be Bluetooth equipped

To verify you can click on:
Start>control panel

In the pane that opens up one of the first option that comes up should be Bluetooth. If it is there then you are equiped. Also an easy way is to check especially if running Vista, click Start then in the search bar at the bottom of the start meni type Bluetooth.

How do i connect my hannspad 9.7 to my laptop

What you need to do is look at the model numbers if the hannspad 9.7 is a tablet model number SN97T41W then it has Bluetooth. Does the laptop have Bluetooth you need to Google search its model number with the word Spec to find out if it has Bluetooth. If it does not have bluetooth you can purchase a USB Bluetooth Dongle for the laptop and should be able to pair the two devices together via Bluetooth to transfer files between them.

If the model does not come with bluetooth capabilities then you will have to purchase and install a bluetooth adapter into one of the USB Ports. They cost less then $20.

Try the site below. Just type: Bluetooth USB Adapters and press GO in the search box at the top of the page when the site comes up.

Your computer may not have Bluetooth, which is one of those features that "varies by model" according to the Acer site. My daughter has a similar model, and even though it has a Bluetooth switch on the case, the card isn't installed. (I think that's false advertising, and only found out because I opened the computer to see why the Bluetooth wouldn't come on.)

If your model is equipped the same way, you'll need to buy a USB Bluetooth adapter (a "dongle") and plug it in to get Bluetooth.

On the other hand, if your computer does have the Bluetooth card installed and it's not working, it may be bad or its drivers have been lost for some reason. Check the Windows Device Manager to see if any Bluetooth hardware or "unknown devices" are listed with the exclamation mark icon next to them. If so, you can try reinstalling the drivers (available from Acer's site), or see about having the computer serviced.

My daughter has a similar model in this series, and hers does not have Bluetooth capability. What is very misleading (and, in my opinion, bordering on false advertising) is that there is a Bluetooth switch on the unit that doesn't actually do anything since the card is not installed. Bluetooth is listed as one of those "varies by model" features, so yours may not have it either. (I only found that out when I opened her laptop to see why the Bluetooth wasn't turning on.)

Most likely, the only way you'll get Bluetooth working on your model is to buy a USB Bluetooth adapter (a "dongle") and plug it in. Unless yours does in fact have Bluetooth installed and it the card doesn't work, in which case you'll need to have the computer serviced.

How do i work the bluetooth on my packardbell easynote lj61 laptop? please help.

Hi, to enable bluetooth on this model you should press the Fn key and the F6 key simultaniously, however not all models have bluetooth (infact hardly any have bluetooth) but all models have the symbols on the keys and the bluetooth icon on the upper panel, cost saving by acer no doubt.

Have I got bluetooth and how do I set it up


No that model does not have a Bluetooth connection on because its a fairly old machine. You would have to get a USB Bluetooth dongle if you are wanting Bluetooth on the laptop.

Does the Aspire 5100 have bluethooth


This do not have Inbuilt Bluetooth Function. This Model only have Bluetooth Module. If you wish, you could Purchase a Bluetooth Kit and have that Function installed :-

Most of the Acer Models do not have Inbuilt Bluetooth. Usually i would say, use Bluetooth Toggle, rather than Purchasing a kit. A Bluetooth toggle is just like a Pen Drive.You need to install the CD and load the software. Once Loaded, insert the Toggle in the USB of the Computer and synchronize it with other device.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!
