    My laptop came with Vista Home Basic and it had bluetooth. I turned it off by the switch because I didn't need it but now I do and I cant get it to come back on. When I push the switch nothing happens.

    Hi first things first.



    Did you keep the original restore disks from your XP install,

    You could restore the machine back to factory default if you still have the original disks,

    I not you will have to continue with VISTA



    I suggest you try this site & read the pdf manual and check the differences of the softwares XP & VISTA,

    The drivers are very different.

    There is a solution available for your issue,

    The correct drivers for VISTA are here



    ftp://ftp.work.acer-euro.com/notebook/aspire_3680/



    Uninstall the drivers reboot and reinstall them



    Hope this helps,Let me know if you need more help thanks

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.

Acer 3680 bluetooth


Your computer doesn't have a Bluetooth device installed, usually its installed with the wifi card or its a PCMCIA card, and its doesn't work unless you get one, why did they put that switch there, I'll never know.

I have the acer aspire 3680 with built in bluetooth. i upgraded my pc to vista ultimate about a year ago and since then i have not been able to get my bluetooth to work. it wont even blink blue. i even...


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

Graphics upgrade


if you have Aspire 3680, the answer is no, you can't upgrade graphic card, because it is on motherboard, it isnot like desktop computer (separate card).
