Question about Acer TravelMate 4200 Notebook

Won't connect to bluetooth printer

I recently purchased a printer with bluetooth capability. When I attempt to add the printer using the wizard, it does not give me the option to set up a bluetooth printer. Further, my control panel does not have a bluetooth connectivity icon. I found the switch on the front of the notebook for bluetooth, but when I slide it to the left it pops back to the middle and says "no bluetooth connections". Any help would be appreciated.

Sir,

This laptop does not ship with a bluetooth device. The button is available on the casing because Acer do not have separate casings for laptops without Bluetooth. Also, an opton for adding a bluettooth chip is available with Acer at a cost though.

Asus manufactures computers, notebooks, motherboards and other PC components. Some of their machines have Bluetooth capability. You can use prompts in Windows to make sure that your Asus's Bluetooth capability is up and running.

Open Bluetooth Settings
In the task bar, right-click the Bluetooth symbol, then select "Open Bluetooth Settings." If there is no Bluetooth icon in the task bar, go to "Start," then "Run" and type in "bthprops.cpl." Click "OK" to open the Bluetooth Settings window. b> View Options b> Click on the "Options" tab, and select the "Turn discovery on" check box. Click "Apply." b> Allow Devices b> In the "Connections" section, select the check box for "Allow Bluetooth devices to connect to this computer" so that Bluetooth devices can connect to your Asus. Click "OK." b> Testing for Bluetooth b> If you are unsure whether your Asus is Bluetooth capable, try typing in the "bthprops.cpl" command in the "Run" box. If it's unsuccessful, your machine isn't Bluetooth capable. Hope this helps.

Select the device that's not working, and then click Remove.

Follow the rest of the instructions in the wizard.

Make sure the device is turned on and that the batteries don't need to be replaced.


Make sure the Bluetooth adapter for your computer is attached and turned on, and that the device is turned on and discoverable.


If you're not sure how to turn on discoverability, read the instructions that came with the device or check the manufacturer's website.


Make sure that you installed the device using the correct program. If not, reinstall the device.

For a printer, follow these steps:


Open the Add Printer wizard by clicking the Start Control Panel, clicking Hardware and Sound, clicking Printers, and then clicking Add a printer.

I would like to know how to connect my bluertooth to my laptop so I can listen to videos without disturbing anyone else?


Assuming you are using windows go to "control panel", "bluetooth devices" add then follow the onscreen instructions, you will have to get your bluetooth device ready for paring the same way you do for everything else.
Not all laptops come with built in bluetooth if your one doesent it will tell you in the setup wizard when you scan for bluetooth device.

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.

Enable my dell inspiron 1501 bluetooth


I looked over the system configurations for the Inspiron 1501, and it doesn't have Bluetooth capabilities built into it. The 1520 series does, but not the 1501. The only way you're going to be able to add Bluetooth technology is to purchase a Bluetooth usb adapter. Here's a link to the 1501 manuals if you would like to look over them.

I thought I had Bluetooth in my computer...


Yes, you can use bluetooth mobile devices. COM 3 os the port that the bluetooth uses to connect to a device. You can think of it like a wireless modem. You can also configure other COM ports for communication with bluetooth devices using the connection wizard. I would suggest not to do this unless you know what you doing. From my experiences with bluetooth devices they can b a little touchy, and you have to careful you don't want to pick a port that another program is already using. ConfigFree is capable of configuring this bluetooth connection, but there are also other programs out there that you can use as well.
