As soon as I saw your problem I began to research, because I had a good idea what the problem is. This laptop is does not have a good reputation first of all. Second, this problem has been reported by others. It is a cheap and faulty bluetooth. My high recomendation is a better quality computer. If that is not an option, You can make sure there is bluetooth software on your computer. If there is, the bluetooth is broken. I don't believe you can fix it (even if you could I can't find a replacment part). So yeah, that is why it doesn't work. I'm sorry. If I can be of any further assistance, let me know.

How do i bluetooth pictures from my nokia 2690 to my acer aspire 3690 notebook


Hello

First you need to install the bluetooth driver software [that can be found on the acer CD that came first time with your laptop or just look here www.acer.com ] , then reboot your system . after that turn on the bluetooth buttons on your laptop and on the device you want to connect your laptop with for example [Cell phone ] . make on of them look for the other . then you need to pair them , so that you don't need to do that again .
Just look around in the software that you already installed and problem will be solved .

your rating is very important for me , that's why I've helped you .

good luck .

Acer 3680 bluetooth


Your computer doesn't have a Bluetooth device installed, usually its installed with the wifi card or its a PCMCIA card, and its doesn't work unless you get one, why did they put that switch there, I'll never know.

Laptop wlan and bluetooth switch broke help? plz!


The answer is probably no. If it was stuck in the on position you could disable it some other way but stuck in the off position is different.

If you are using Vista you can open the windows mobility center and look at the wireless section. If turn on is grayed out then mess with the place the switch should be until it is not grayed out.

Acer aspire 3690 bluetooth driver


If the bluetooth dongle driver was on an included disc, make sure you opened or ran the disc/driver as the administrator instead of just opening in the normal manor. I've dealt with a few of the bluetooth dongles, but not many, so I'm going to say that if you keep getting the same message try either going to the manufacturer's web site to see if there's a driver download there, or exchanging the device for a different one, it could be that the disc with the driver is bad. Also, because I'm not overly familiar with these devices, I recommend you try asking Ekse if my suggestions do not work. Ekse is another of our experts here, he's extremely knowledgeable, and he may be more familiar with the devices than I am. You can find Ekse under find experts on the home page.
