welcome to FIXYA

Set up a Bluetooth enabled deviceTo set up a Bluetooth enabled device, you need to do three things:

  1. Add a Bluetooth adapter to your computer.
    This is usually done by plugging the adapter into a USB port. (If a Bluetooth adapter is already built in or attached to your computer, ignore this step.)
  2. Set up the device so that your computer can find it.
    To do this, you must:
    • Turn the device on.
    • Make it discoverable.
    To learn how to make a device discoverable, check the information that came with your device or go to the manufacturer’s website.
  3. Install the device.
    To install most devices, such as a mobile phone, keyboard, mouse, or personal digital assistant (PDA), you can use Bluetooth Devices in Control Panel. If you have Bluetooth wireless technology installed on your computer, follow these steps:
    To install a Bluetooth enabled device
    1. Click the Start button getcontent.aspx?assetid=4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33&documentset=en-us&renderkey=signed1, click Control Panel, click Hardware and Sound, and then click Bluetooth Devices.
    Click Add, and then follow the instructions.

i hope this helps you out have a good day :)

Bluetooth other than the device itself is software, the "bluetooth dongle" gets plugged into a port via the usb, So I am thinking you need to plug it in to the computer. If it is a new machine if may be internal, that would be under programs, start programs, if no bluetooth it must be installed the software and hardware, good luck

hi thanks for using fixya!

As I wanted to provide suggestions to you, but on this case, I will suggest if you can bring your laptop to a service center and have it fixed. There are so many reasons why it is not working properly and some errors within. It could help a lot if you will bring it and a service technician will see it personally.

    I hav e an Acer Aspire 5742G model. The Wi-Fi works well, but then I can't get the bluetooth to work. What might be wrong?

    Hello there,
    The bluetooth of the acer aspire 5742g model does not work on its own. It requires you to connect a bluetooth dongle on to it via the usb port. Then you will be able to use the bluetooth of the laptop.
    Try it out and see.
    Hope this was helpful to you. Goodluck Elect_Comp

    How do I get bluetooth to work on my Acer Aspire 5742. Do I need to install a driver or something? Thanks Sam

    Probably your laptop dosen't have bluetooth hardware in it.
    Confirm it by following process
    Right click on My computer and click Manage
    then click on device manager on left panel
    A list will appear which shows the hardware content of your laptop.
    If the list dosen't contain bluetooth device then it is confirmed that your laptop dosent have bluetooth hardware.
    Try using external USB bluetooth device for your laptop. Cost couple of dollars.

    Hi sir i have acer aspire 5742 but its bluetooth is not turning on please help me what me should do

    Maybe the drivers are not installed. On the other hand, there's a possibility that it doesn't have any bluetooth function, check the box for the specs and features usually bluetooth is optional.

    Your computer may not have Bluetooth, which is one of those features that "varies by model" according to the Acer site. My daughter has a similar model, and even though it has a Bluetooth switch on the case, the card isn't installed. (I think that's false advertising, and only found out because I opened the computer to see why the Bluetooth wouldn't come on.)

    If your model is equipped the same way, you'll need to buy a USB Bluetooth adapter (a "dongle") and plug it in to get Bluetooth.

    On the other hand, if your computer does have the Bluetooth card installed and it's not working, it may be bad or its drivers have been lost for some reason. Check the Windows Device Manager to see if any Bluetooth hardware or "unknown devices" are listed with the exclamation mark icon next to them. If so, you can try reinstalling the drivers (available from Acer's site), or see about having the computer serviced.
