Hi, I have a new Lenovo Y530-4051 Laptop. The problem is that Bluetooth is not working. It does not even show up in the device manager. I have ran the DPInst in the BRCM Folder but nothing happens. Even when I press FN-F5 the only thing that shows up is Wireless card. My Wirelss network is functioning just fine. Can you assist please

    Thanks for the feed back however the specifications metioned in the link do not match the actual specifications of my laptop despite the fact that I have double checked the model number of the laptop. It is Y530-4051. the following items don't match. RAM memory, CPU and Hard drive.. I have purchased my laptop from the states at the end of Oct-2008 but now Im over seas otherwise I would have went back to the store I have purchased it from.

    One last thing to mention is that I have checked other sites in which people mentioned they had issues with the bluetooth on the same model but they have XP. then they were advised to run the driver in the bluetooth directory which has worked.

    Please advise if anyother options are available to resolve this issue.

    Many thanks in advance.

Are you sure this model actually has bluetooth?
The manufacturers tend to sure the same case for similar models, for example Y530-4051 and Y530-4052 may be identical except that slightly different features.

I have a Acer that does NOT have bluetooth but there is a on/off switch for it on the case.

The Lenovo specifications for this model mention nothing about Bluetooth.
https://www.directlenovo.com/public/public/products/details/dsp_product_note.cfm?product=40512SU&ecim=N&config=N&os_depend_stat=%20&avail_status=%20&establish_cookie=true

If you need Bluetooth, consider something like this:
http://www.usbgear.com/USB-Bluetooth.html

It is a lot less expensive than finding, buying and then paying for a tech to open up the system and install the card - not to mention that anybody opening the case other than an authorized service center (can we say expensive) would void the warranty.

I bought lenovo G550 last week. It came with Windows Vista. I want to install Windows XP on it. I have found that lenovo has driver for windows XP so that will make my life easy :-) But when I try to...


you are most likely getting a BSOD with a stop error code of 0x0000007B which is caused by the Windows XP CD that you are using doesn't have the SATA Hard Drive controller driver needed to recognize and utilize the hard drive. If Lenovo has XP drivers for this model then they should have a SATA driver (roughly 394k) that will need to be loaded FROM A FLOPPY DISKETTE during the boot to XP. (XP Requires the driver to either be slipstreamed into the CD or loaded from a floppy diskette. Trying to load the controller driver USB or a different CD will not work)

A problem regarding bluetooth


You need to install the bluetooth software, if you have a disk, install from there. Otherwise look on the manufacturers website for the drivers and other software you may want. the bluetooth device itself is just the hardware, you need both the software and the hardware, good luck,
PS, also mention what operating system you have, because XP doesn't support it even though it will work on XP, that's a MSFT thing,they would rather say they don't support something than have it work properlly with their software

Uninstall the driver. Shutdown the unit then insert the bluetooth adapter and then reinstall driver.

If not then check settings of your firewall or antivirus.

Hope this helps you already.

Want to install a bluetooth driver,it displays no bluetooth device found


Based on the comments of one of the user/owner of same laptop model as yours, to quote: " I got this laptop for my school work and it turned out to be able to do so much more. It's perfect size and the battery, compared to other Acer products, last for 3+ hours. It's got more USB ports than my desktop computer. It includes other features like a built in SD card reader,BLUETOOTH, an IR reciever, a built in mike, and much more. So far it has never locked up on me, I guess thats comming from the 1GB of RAM. It easly runs the new versions of Office and Adobe, and is great for the office ot the light gamer."

So based on the above, Bluetooth already exist in your laptop as its driver might be included in the motherboard software, which you don't need to install a new driver, all you have to do is to check if its Enabled & status is in Working Condition thru the Device Manager settings. best regards
