Gougher01,
Thanks for following up with me. It's taken a while, but after 10 mins of searching in the usual XP 'Trying to locate software' from the internet, it has found and installed the necessary drivers and the dongle indicates its ready for use. Have yet to test it. Key msg for outers is to give the net search time as nothing happens for at least 10 mins of the search, so you can be tempted to give up, as I did on first attempt. Thanks. Trevor (Bluetooth dongle has 'Bluetooth' as its TM, otherwise I' not clear as to manufacturer as no docs came with it.)

Hello sir plz help i have dell inspiron 1545 with processor pentium dual core i am having problem with bluetooth sir i have tryed to install wireless 365 bluetooth modem driver but it is asking me to...


It is very likely that the Dell operator was right and the bluetooth option is not installed on your system. You will have to buy a USB bluetooth dongle or adapter.
click on control panel click on bluetooth devices if its there, is there anything listed as available? also in control panel click on system > device manager and see if any bluetooth devices are listed there. If not you don't have the option built in to your laptop

Does my 1550 have blue tooth


Here's a rundown of what you don't get in the Inspiron 1501 that comes standard with the Inspiron 1505, I am assuming yo did a typo with the 1550
  • No dedicated media buttons on the front
  • No Dell Media Direct software feature
  • No FireWire port
  • No S-Video port
  • 3-in-1 card reader instead of 5-in-1
  • No internal Bluetooth option
But if yours is the 1501 then just buy a $7 blue tooth doogle that slots into your usb then your bluetooth problem is solved.

Is there a software that you can download to make your computer have bluetooth


You need to have the appropriate hardware in order to use bluetooth. You cannot download the software and assume it will work.

Bluetooth dell 2200 free


Drivers for the Dell Inspiron 2200 are at http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen&ServiceTag=&SystemID=INSPIRON%202200&os=WW1&osl=en&catid=&impid=

There are no Bluetooth drivers I could find there. Do you have a Bluetooth module installed in your computer? If you don't have a Dell-supplied Bluetooth device, you'll have to add one; there are many "dongles" for Bluetooth that plug in to a USB port, and they come with the requisite software to make the "dongle" work. If you need one, start here: http://www.google.com/products/catalog?hl=en&as_epq=&as_oq=&as_eq=&num=50&lr=lang_en&as_filetype=&as_sitesearch=&as_qdr=all&as_rights=&as_occt=any&cr=&as_nlo=&as_nhi=&safe=off&q=bluetooth+usb+adapter&um=1&ie=UTF-8&cid=5854619309937880354&ei=Zg_eSb7PN5LuMvzphE4&sa=X&oi=product_catalog_result&resnum=1&ct=result#ps-sellers

Enable my dell inspiron 1501 bluetooth


I looked over the system configurations for the Inspiron 1501, and it doesn't have Bluetooth capabilities built into it. The 1520 series does, but not the 1501. The only way you're going to be able to add Bluetooth technology is to purchase a Bluetooth usb adapter. Here's a link to the 1501 manuals if you would like to look over them.
