Hello. I also have a Acer Aspire 5600 and I can see the bluetooth sign on the tools bar at the bottom of the screen, but when I click it it says: "bluetooth device not found". Is there anyway to solve this?

Disconnect the power cord from the laptop and remove the main battery.
Open the laptop computer's screen and extend it as far back as it will go. Be careful not to stress the screen and cause any damage, but press it hard if needed.
Press a flat head screwdriver under the front of the plastic bar lining the back of the laptop's keyboard. Pry the bar up slightly and hold it with one hand.
Pry up the other side of the bar with the flat head screwdriver and fully pull out the bar. Keep its ribbon cord connected and set the bar on the laptop's screen.
Remove the two Phillips screws securing the computer's keyboard. Slide the keyboard up and out to remove it. Again, do not remove its ribbon cord, and set the keyboard over the laptop's touch pad.
Remove the four screws securing the cover plate over the motherboard and remove the plate as well.
Locate the CMOS battery at the bottom-right corner of the motherboard.
Check your Device Manager to make sure you computer has Bluetooth capability. If there is no Bluetooth in your control panel, you may have to install the drivers and use the software. You can download the drivers and software from here for the 4810T:
your laptop uses a foxconn bluetooth set. Make sure you have the proper driver for this device. Go to Acer support and make sure the driver is up to date. May look something like this:
Fox_brm_2.0 F/W 300
I believe this laptop is still using the bluetooth standard 1.1, so there shouldn't be an issue with finding another bluetooth device. Just make sure that the other devices are in discovery mode or they won't be seen regardless. Discover mode should be able to be accessed through the options tab under bluetooth.

Does the acer 5600awlmi have a bluetooth device installed?
Do you have a switch at the front to switch bluetooth on/off?
Check by opening back were the harddrive is also located.
If no card with 4 wires on white 8-pin socket is installed, you don't have a bluetooth device.
Also check the connector!
However it is possible to put one in yourself.
I have a 5601awlmi and mine has no bluetooth device installed.
On e-bay you can buy an bluetooth card for approx. €20 in germany.
On the back side open the casing were the harddrive is located.
There you see a 8-pin white socket.
Connect the card to the socket and boot.
Next install the bluetooth drivers from acer website if neccessary.
I hope this answers your question.
There are two types of driver for the orbicam, Bison and Logitech, so ensure you have the correct one installed, especially if you are running Vista as it's a different driver again, and it's installed a seperate peice of hardware although it's built into the notebook.
There are no listing for 5600 drivers so try 5610 they should be the same
Well the Acer site says that it has built-in bluetooth!(Aspire 1690)
If you go to device manager
(Right click on my computer, click on manage. Under System Tools in the left pane click on device manager)
you should see one of the device categories there as Bluetooth, if you don't see it and see a yellow icon that means you might need to install the bluetooth drivers! If you don't either you might need another component(bluetooth hardware) for the bluetooth to work!
hope this was helpful
