Re: bluetooth of compaq nc8230

There is normally a switch on the front of the laptop or a function key on the keypad to turn on/off the bluetooth, so check both and also when you turn it on, ensure in the the settings that the laptop is discoverable to other bluetooth devices, as your phone wont find it otherwise. If bluetooth is enabled on your notebook it should apear in control panel, so go to my computer>right click to properties>hardware tab>device manager, and look down the list for network adapters and click on the '+' sign and see if your blutooth adapter isnt dissabled with a red cross, if so right click anf select enable or has no driver installed; showing a yellow exclamation mark, if so right click and select update driver.

How do i get bluetooth working on my aspire5535 laptop

Activate the Bluetooth features of your Acer Aspire to unlock your laptop's wireless function. Bluetooth technology allows your computer to control and share data with external devices without having to use a connection cable or download drivers.
In order to establish the connection with other enabled devices, you must first enable the Bluetooth antenna so other devices can locate your computer.

Press the "Bluetooth" button found just above the keyboard.
The LED above the button should illuminate.
Click "Start," "Control Panel" and "Add a Device."
Your Acer scans for other Bluetooth devices in the area.
Click the name of the device in the window that appears, and click "Next" to establish a connection with the external device.
Microsoft bluetooth support

Bluetooth is not responding

which bluetooth device ? are you referring to ?
keyboard , mouse , ahh a webcam ?

Bluetooth is a wireless technology that connects devices over a limited-range network (WPAN, or wireless personal area network). Bluetooth transfers data three to eight times faster than a parallel or serial port.

Some Lenovo PCs includes an internal Bluetooth card to allow users to connect Bluetooth devices to the computer. Inactive Bluetooth support or computer settings can prevent the Lenovo PC from detecting a Bluetooth device.

Hold down "Fn" and "F5" after booting the computer or returning from standby to enable Bluetooth features. Click "Start." Click "Control Panel." Double-click "Bluetooth Configuration." Select the "Accessibility" tab. Check "Let other Bluetooth devices discover this computer." Select "All devices" from the drop-down menu. Click "OK." Double-click "Bluetooth Devices." Select the "Options" tab. Check "Turn discovery on," "Allow Bluetooth devices to connect to this computer" and "Alert me when a new Bluetooth device wants to connect." Click "OK." Exit from "Control Panel." Align the device with the Lenovo PC. Check the documentation included with the device to confirm it is the correct distance from the computer. Right-click "Start." Click "Explore" or "Open." Navigate to "My Bluetooth Places." Click "Bluetooth Tasks." Click "View Devices in Range" to locate the device. Select the device from the list. Click "Discover services" to use the device's applications on your Lenovo PC. Right-click the device and select "Connect" or "Pair" to configure the device. Hope it helps.

Could not found the bluetooth connection or device

Make sure you have every driver for your laptop loaded. Then let's suppose you want to connect your phone to the laptop bluetooth: Turn on the bluetooth in your mobile and make it visible to the other bluetooth device then only your handphone will detect the other bluetooth device and viceversa. Most of the recent notebooks are having bluetooth enabled but in some notebooks we need to turn on the bluetooth by using the buttons which indicated as bluetooth. Once you turn on then get into your computer running windows vista type this following command in the search box or in the run box "ncpa.cpl" it will take you to the network connection window [you can even use control panel option to reach the network options]. In that window where you find the bluetooth connection.Click the icon first and look it on the top of the window where you can see an option "Connect the the bluetooth"click it then you need to add the bluetooth device click add. It will find your hand phone then it will ask the passpharse key you can create one and then your handphone alert you to type the same key that u given in the notebook.Once it matched it will connect automatically. Later type bluetooth in the search option where you will get an option as Bluetooth(Transfer files wizard) . Click it then you receive or send the file via bluetooth between your notebook and handphone. Hope it helped.

I can not upgrade my bluetooth driver

Like many laptops, mine also, they have bluetooth and wireless software, but not the hardware. You may have a wireless adapter built in, if so there will be a small switch for it on the front or side. Just slide it to on and wireless is up and running.As for bluetooth, buy a dongle, about £5($8) or so, from your nearest stockist.

For a Compaq Presario V3780TU Notebook PC, the Bluetooth driver is incorporated in the HP Wireless Assistant, a user application that provides a way to control the enablement of the radios for individual wireless devices (such as Bluetooth, WLAN, or WWAN devices) and that shows the state of the radios for these wireless devices

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
