It sounds like the blue tooth device was disabled on your computer. Try to go into the control panel and then double click on the systems icon and get into the hardware manager ( i have not had the pleasure of working much with vista so you may have to look around but you want the device manager) find the blue tooth device and right click on it and select enable. If it does not show up in this list try to refresh the list and if you cannot see it still it may be turned off in your bios. This is a whole nother set of instructions so lets see where this gets you first.

After you enable the device you will have to reinstall the driver most likely

HAVE UPGRADED TO WINDOWS 7 HOME PREMIUM ON MY ACER 9301 LAPTOP. NOW MY BLUETOOTH AND ORBICAM DOES NOT WORK. CAN YOU PLEASE ASSIST.


I would check for windows 7 specific drivers for the bluetooth and the orbicam. Beyond that, I have heard and experienced problems with windows 7 not supporting all accessories and peripherals of laptops.

For instance, I had a basically unsolvable problem with the scroll keys on the touchpad not working after upgrading to windows 7 from Vista on an Aspire 3680 series laptop which was only a few years old.

I had to find a workaround for it, by using the arrow keys instead.

You might have to try workarounds for your problems, like getting a new external webcam for the webcam problem.

The bluetooth is a little bit harder to fix, though, because it's integrated into the computer, generally, like my touchpad.

Hi,

Have you upgraded the bios to enable Vista to be installed, if not go here first and download it: http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/notebook/as_3680.html - Vista bios is at the bottom

Also, are you 100% sure that your hardware is up to Vista.
