If you are talking about the on board speaker not working these are probably the wires for it. Get a magnifying glass and see if any of the pins are marked "spkr" or something similar to that. That would be where the wires go.

Are 2002 Aztec computers compatible


I am assuming you are discussing the 2002 Pontiac Aztec, the early crossover with the rather distinctive look. I would assume that since they were made by the same manufacturer and they used the same parts that their computers should be compatible. I can't say so for certain as you haven't provided much information, but, unless one of the Aztec owner swapped out the original computer and replaced it with an updated device, the computers should be compatible.

If you are thinking of trying to swap computer chips, I would advise you to wait and let a professional do it at an independent shop. The reason I suggest this is simple, unless you know how to access the computer chip correctly, you risk accidentally ruining it. If you handle the replacement chip incorrectly it is entirely possible that for a stray static charge to ruin the chip by blowing out a trace. Also, if you damaged the socket from which the original chip was removed then it is possible that you will not be able to reinsert the new device without bending any leads on the bottom. If the leads are damaged, then the new computer won't work.

Even if the new computer chip and the original chip were already installed in installable cases (the way most desktop computer chips are installed), it is possible that when you removed the computer, you might have damaged the receiving socket which means that when you go to insert the new computer carrier it won't work correctly because a few or many of the pins on the bottom of the board won't sit correctly.

How to enable bluetooth


Your computer has to have a bluetooth radio. You can check
Control Panel > System and Security > Device Manager
Do you see a Bluetooth Radio listed?

If not, you don't have BlueTooth on your computer so you will have to add a BlueTooth device by plugging one into a USB port.

If you have a BlueTooth radio, go to Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Device and Printers > Add a Bluetooth Device

This option is used to connect a blue tooth device (e.g. bluetooth headphons) to your laptop through your bluetooth radio.

See this Windows web page for more information.
Set up Bluetooth enabled device

I will respond to any additional questions you have.

Bluetooth & sound


Generally, connecting phones via bluetooth to a laptop just allows for file transfer between the two devices. It is not to input sound from the phone through the speakers of the laptop. You would need a bluetooth audio device for that such as bluetooth speakers or headphones

Hide file folder WITH A password


For the most part you need 3rd party software, or a USB drive with security built in. Just remember you are at the mercy of those companies if you lose the password. Plus some software will only works locally. For instance if someone removes the drive and connects it to another computer the files are wide open.
Win 7 Ult and Ent (high end editions have Bitlocker built in.
A simple way is to create a folder within his login account docs and choose hidden as the properties. The only way to see it would be to change folder properties and make hidden files visible. This is just cloaking, because anybody with admin rights can see them.

Removing bluetooth chip


Without knowing what the desktop computer motherboard is, I\'d only be guessing as to location of Wi-Fi chipset.
However even if I knew the motherboard manufacturer name, and model number; the point is Moot.

A) You remove that Wi-Fi chip, and kiss the motherboard goodbye.
It\'s designed into the circuitry of the motherboard.

Isn\'t going to be jumper wires taking it\'s place, and making connections to circuit traces on the motherboard.

B) Do you have a wireless router?
Dunno.
Do you have a wireless connection set up?
No.

You can use just a LAN connection. (Hard wired)

C) Suggest if having a Bluetooth option on your motherboard is not an option then use a different motherboard that doesn\'t have that option.
