Can't find bluetooth connection on laptop to connect 2cell phone

Im trying to connect the compuer with my phone via bluetooth and the help window says to go under contol panel, hardware and sound, then bluetooth devices. The problem is that there is no option "bluetooth devices".
When I slide the bluetooth button over on the front of the laptop it says "no bluetooth device". The phone bluetooth is on. Do I need some other sort of hardware? What's up?

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

Have you "enabled" the BlueTooth support on the Nokia?
Have you "enabled" the BlueTooth support on your laptop?
Do you get a prompt on the laptop (or the Nokia) requesting permission to connect to the BlueTooth network?

P.S. Look for a 'Fn Lock' key on the laptop. Press it to make all the other 'Fn' keys work.

How can I on the bluetooth on my laptop aspire 4743Z?


Connecting your Bluetooth wireless phone with your laptop is called pairing, and I'll use a Blackberry Curve to show you how it works. I'm assuming your laptop comes with a built-in Bluetooth adapter (or you can also get a Bluetooth adapter that plugs into one of your USB ports).
First make sure that Bluetooth is enabled on your phone. For Blackberry phones, that means selecting the "Set Up Bluetooth" application from the main screen, and then selecting "Enable Bluetooth" after clicking the menu button.
Next, set up your computer to allow Bluetooth connections. If your computer comes with Bluetooth, then you'll see a Bluetooth icon in your Control Panel (Start button -> Control Panel from Vista):
control-panel-bluetooth.jpg Double-click the Bluetooth icon and you'll see a Bluetooth Devices dialog. Click the Options tab and make sure the options to "Allow Bluetooth devices to find this computer" and "Allow Bluetooth devices to connect to this computer" are both checked
bluetooth-devices-options.jpg Next, click the Devices tab and then click the "Add" button. This will open the Add Bluetooth Device Wizard, and after verifying that your device is set up and ready to be found (ie. Bluetooth has been enabled on your wireless phone) it will try to find your phone.
add-bluetooth-device.jpg Select the Bluetooth device and click Next to set up a passkey, which is a number that associates your computer with a Bluetooth enabled device. For security reasons, most Bluetooth enabled devices (with some exceptions, such as mice) require you to use a passkey. Using a passkey helps ensure that your computer is connecting to the device that you intended and not someone else's device that is nearby.
You can choose your own passkey or let Windows choose one for you. Click Next and then pick up your phone, which will prompt you to enter in the passkey. After entering the passkey in your phone, Windows will finish the pairing process and your phone will be connected via Bluetooth.

You can your phone to your laptop via bluetooth or by data cable.
To access internet from your laptop using phone is something using dial up networking.To use dial up networking you have to create a connection profile.First go to control panel->network connections->in that network connection take a view at side bar their is create new connection.Then new connection wizard window comes up click next and choose your profile(if u want to use it via bluetooth choose ddial up modem).

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.

Hi my laptop (acer aspire 5672wlmi) wlan and bluetooth switch that are conntected to its motherboard have broken off and are broke is there any way that im able to turn the bluetooh and wireless on without...


I believe that you can turn these functions on and off via the Network Connections that you can access from the control panel.

In Windows XP:
Click on START button
Select Control Panel
Click on Network Connections

In Windows Vista:
Click on START button
Select Control Panel
Select Network and Internet
Select Network and Sharing Center
In left panel, select Manage Network Connections

Once here, you should see your wireless adapter and your bluetooth adapter. If you Right-Click on either connection, a menu will pop up and you can choose to Enable or Disable the connection without the button on the front of your computer.

Hope this helps.
