If your particular model of HP has the blue tooth installed from the
factory, turning on the wireless switch on the front left edge of the
laptop enables the blue tooth, as well as the wireless LAN. A blue tooth
icon should appear in your task bar near the clock when blue tooth is
ELSE You have to go into start, then all programs, then look for the blue tooth connection setting. Hope this helps.
Go into start, then all programs, then look for accessories, the find blue tooth wizard. You can switch it on via that.
NOTE : BE SURE THAT YOU HAVE A BLUE TOOTH IN YOUR MODEL BECAUSE SOME OF THE MODELS DON'T HAVE IT.
There should be a switch just above the keyboard to turn wireless/bluetooth on or off. Make sure this is turned on first. Once you have the bluetooth controller turned on, click on the start icon and open Control Panel. Find and open 'Devices and Printers'. Click 'Add a Device' and follow the instructions to pair your bluetooth device with your PC.
I hope this helps!
If your not using blue tooth try turning it off. You didn't say what operating system your using. On windows 7 you can just click the window icon and type blue tooth in the search window. It should find your default program and get you to where you need to be to turn it off. :You may have some thing on your task bar that allows you to turn off blue tooth. Also try opening control panel and selecting device manager, Look for anything that list blue tooth and disable it. You might have a program on the the program bar under accessories that is listed as blue tooth. Somewhere you should have a way to turn it off.
Hi clery pereir
You see the bluetooth icon on task bar.you see this icon only if you installed the bluetooth driver.
If you installed driver then also you are not getting the you need to reinstall the bluetooth software.
You can find bluetooth software form your laptop company's website.
You need to connect a wired usb mouse first and try pairing the bluetooth mouse again with your system by going to the control panel and opening your bluetooth device manager. Click add a device and press the connect button underneath your mouse. System should be able to detect your mouse. If that failed, try replacing the batteries with fresh ones.
you need to right click the blutooth icon in the right hand coner of the task bar and set the prefs to visible and then paird the devices before sending files if its not seeing your cell phone most likly its set to invisivble wich is the defalt setting for blue tooth in XP
Some more details on when and how this problem developed would be helpful in offering solutions.
When would the lan/blue tooth devices show up in hardrives list?
They are usually in the task bar or network connections.
If so open the network connections from either the task bar- which in your case may not be possible as it sounds that you can not see any lan/wlan icons there- or from start- control panel -network connections and see if there are any lan/wlan/1394 etc listed there but disabled. enable them and try. You will need to usually check the properties box of each to show up on task bar and or if connectivity is present or not. You could also check your computer properties, device manager and see if any devices especially network adapters or other devices listed with yellow warnings and fix them individually.
Hope this helps
