I recently bought an Advent 5431 laptop and it is advertised as having wireless bluetooth. I have found the programme however it just won't work, there is nothing in the manual concerning bluetooth apart from in the safety features where it says to be careful while using it. Can anyone help?
This model is not bluetooth enabled but yoy can buy and install a blurtooth adapter (dongle)
Once the adapter is inserted to an available USB port the appropriate drivers are installed
You can now access the bluetooth device from the control panel and get connected to any bluetooth enabled device

All depends, Does your QT 5500 have bluetooth Adapter? Bluetooth Software? I looked at the specs, I don't see Bluetooth listed, but doesn't mean you don't have it. In Device Manager, is Bluetooth Listed?

Your computer may not actually have Bluetooth capability. Bluetooth is one of those features that is "on certain models only", according to Acer's site. My daughter's Aspire has a Bluetooth switch on it, and Bluetooth drivers on the CD, but no Bluetooth card is installed. I discovered this when I opened her computer to see why the Bluetooth wasn't working. I've found this to be true for several other models since. This strikes me as misleading and possibly false advertising, but I'm not an attorney.
The only way I have ever found to be sure if the computer has Bluetooth is to open it up and look on the board. Depending on how new "new" is, your computer might still be under warranty so you probably shouldn't bother. Instead, you can try contacting the retailer where you purchased the machine and see if they offer warranty service. Or follow the process given in your manual or on Acer's site for obtaining service. Then if your model does have Bluetooth installed they can fix it, or you'll know for sure it wasn't installed. Then you can buy a USB Bluetooth adapter.
My daughter has a similar model in this series, and hers does not have Bluetooth capability. What is very misleading (and, in my opinion, bordering on false
advertising) is that there is a Bluetooth switch on the unit that doesn't actually
do anything since the card is not installed. Bluetooth is listed as one of those "varies by model" features, so yours may not have it either. (I only found that out when I opened her laptop to see why the Bluetooth wasn't turning on.)
Most likely, the only way you'll get Bluetooth working on your model is to buy a USB Bluetooth adapter (a "dongle") and plug it in. Unless yours does in fact have Bluetooth installed and it the card doesn't work, in which case you'll need to have the computer serviced.
