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.

How to turn on bluetooth on acer aspire 5535


According to the manual, "Located beside the keyboard are application buttons. These buttons are called easy-launch buttons. They are: WLAN, Internet, email, Bluetooth, Arcade and
Acer Empowering Technology." Pressing the Bluetooth button should toggle Bluetooth on or off, assuming the correct drivers are installed.

If you were to log on to the acer.com web site, usually one is able to download if available, by model number, Customer Instruction Manuals, list of Dealers, for spare parts and service, Driver downloads and Installation Instructions as required.

This is the best way of ensuring up to date drivers for your system and they are free of charge!

There are no XP drivers to be found with Microsoft as XP is no longer supported.

Some manufacturers may have a limited number of Drivers still listed.

I hope this helps.

Hi

Thank you for your query, this is not a too uncommon in acers it would seem you may have a cold solder joint on the motherboard causing a short and ultimatley shutting the laptop down

You will need to book the laptop into a reputable PC shop for repair

I believe that you can turn these functions on and off via the Network Connections that you can access from the control panel.

In Windows XP:
Click on START button
Select Control Panel
Click on Network Connections

In Windows Vista:
Click on START button
Select Control Panel
Select Network and Internet
Select Network and Sharing Center
In left panel, select Manage Network Connections

Once here, you should see your wireless adapter and your bluetooth adapter. If you Right-Click on either connection, a menu will pop up and you can choose to Enable or Disable the connection without the button on the front of your computer.

Hope this helps.

Bluetooth and wlan not working


This may sound like a stupid question but does your notebook computer have a WLAN/Bluetooth switch somewhere. This can be a touchsensitive "button" with some kind of antenna icon on it or a real switch/button.

If it's turned off, turn it on.

I hope this helps. Please rate.

Greetings,

DarkNeogen.
