It is probably not enabled in your BIOS turn on the laptop and when you see the 8bit "dell" logo hit the F2 button then adjust your settings as needed

Step 1: First connect the bluetooth device to USB port on your computer and check that it is detecting on your computer or not.

Step 2: Now insert the bluetooth software driver CD to your system that will auto start after few seconds then follow instruction to finish bluetooth software installation.

Step 3: Now go to 'start -> Devices and Printers' and click 'Add a device' from top of the window.

Step 4: Now your Windows 7 system will search the bluetooth device which connected to your system.

Step 5: Click the bluetooth device you want to install from the list and then click the 'Next' button and wait for windows to configure the bluetooth device. If prompted to enter a passcode, enter the default code listed in the bluetooth device manual. In many cases, the default passcode will be '0000'.

Now the bluetooth device has successfully installed and ready to use.

Note: If you bluetooth device was not listed in the search results from Step 4, make the device discoverable. Access your Bluetooth-enabled device's settings page, and turn on the device's 'Listen' or 'Discoverable' function to allow you computer to find it.

I hope it will help you. :-))

How to solve my bluetooth i cant find another bluetooth

The location of your Bluetooth program varies depending on your operating system and brand of Bluetooth software.
The Bluetooth icon is usually in the Control Panel or the Start menu.
If you can't find it, click Start, click Run, type bthprops.cpl, and then click OK.
If this doesn't work, your Bluetooth software might come from someone other than Microsoft, for example, from your computer manufacturer.
See the documentation that came with your computer for more information
Click Start Then click on Control panel and check and see if there is anything that refers to blue tooth and activate it.
If that doest work go to my computer right click on my computer select properties then hardware then device manager then scroll down look for human interface devices see if it is there or anything with blue tooth on it and there it should allow you to enable it
if you are sure that there is a blue tooth in your computer you may need to check in control panel or start menu programs
if you are not sure that you have it then you have to make a right click on my computer - manage - devices
and then check if there is a blue tooth hard ware or not
if not and your OS is not telling you that it discovered a new hard ware then you don't have any

My nokia c7 not connecting to HP pavilion thru bluetooth

Make sure that the blue-tooth is active on the PC and the phone. Now search for devices and when it detects , confirm the passcode and accept the device so as to allow the transfer of files.
Open blue-tooth settings in phone from settings and in PC from blue-tooth manager.

How to send a ring tone from msi notebook computer to nokia mobile by using blue tooth


I believe that you have to activate the bluetooth on your laptop by pressing the FN+F11 keys together

this should bring up two different circles on the screen one is for the wireless and one is for the bluetooth

then you have to activate the bluetooth on your nokia by going into the settings of the nokia and turning bluetooth on

then go back to your computer and right click on the ring tone
go down to bluetooth and go over to search other devices
hopefully it will then find your mobile bluetooth
and will ask for a password possibly
i did not know my password probably because it hadn't been set up
so i put in 0000
then it will ask it you can connect to your mobile
and you have to tell you mobile to accept
then put the same password into the mobile when it asks for it
it will probably also ask you if it can connect automaticly so i clicked yes

hopefully it will then send to your mobile
and i believe its a similar method to send from mobile to laptop

good luck

hope this was useful to you

To activate laptop blue tooth and receive pictures from cell phone thru blue tooth

Most bluetooth devices require that your wifi adapter be turned on while trying to use bluetooth. You should be able to consult your owners manual for information on how this works. If you do not have the manual or have further questions, please specify the exact model of the laptop in question.

Good Luck,

Blue tooth buton not active does it have blue tooth or is that just a button

Try installing the bluetooth driver from the driver disc that you should get when you bought the laptop. If it says bluetooth device is not found, push the bluetooth button once and try again. If it still says that the device is not found, then most probably your laptop have no bluetooth.

This is true for some Acer laptops that I've meddled with. I did what I said, assumed that there's no bluetooth device, only to have it confirmed by the owner that the seller already mentioned that his model have no bluetooth.
