My biuetooth does not work properly in my acer aspire5750


Activate the Bluetooth features of your Acer Aspire to unlock your laptop's wireless function. Bluetooth technology allows your computer to control and share data with external devices without having to use a connection cable or download drivers.
In order to establish the connection with other enabled devices, you must first enable the Bluetooth antenna so other devices can locate your computer.

Press the "Bluetooth" button found just above the keyboard.
The LED above the button should illuminate.
Click "Start," "Control Panel" and "Add a Device."
Your Acer scans for other Bluetooth devices in the area.
Click the name of the device in the window that appears, and click "Next" to establish a connection with the external device.

hi, look for the button than turns your wireless lan on, most systems that's the same button that turns the bluetooth on. You can run a search on the start menu search bar. Just type bluetooth into the bar and everything related to the bluetooth will come up.

I am using Acer Aspire 3500. I have a bluetooth button next to my Lan button. The Lan works but the bluetooth says on screen 'no device'. There is a blue tooth symbol next to clock on taskbar on screen...


In order to use the Bluetooth connection, you have to have a Bluetooth device to pair with your computer. Put the device in pairing or listening mode, then right click on your Bluetooth icon and choose the option for searching for a device. (You may be required to enter the device's passcode -- if you don't know it, try 0000.)

Acer Travelmate 5620 bluetooth button won't turn on


Hi,

Do you actually see the Bluetooth device in device manager? Normally if it's not turned on it won't appear in device manager. The next thing I can think of is that if the Bluetooth module was not turned on when you loaded the drivers then they won't work.
And lastly the module may have come lose or unseated from the slot. Are you absolutely 100% sure there's Bluetooth hardware on this laptop? Is this built-in or a USB dongle?

If built-in have you turned it on? Acer uses a slide switch to turn Bluetooth and Wireless LAN on and off.
The first thing you probably need to establish is whether the laptop has a Bluetooth module fitted. Plenty of Acer laptops support Bluetooth in some markets and not in others and actually have slider switches to turn Bluetooth on/off but don't have the Bluetooth module fitted.

Does the unit say that it supports Bluetooth on the sticker attached to the front of the laptop? The models that have Bluetooth typically have this listed on these and will also list it on the packaging that came with the laptop that lists its specs. If it doesn't mention it odds are it's not fitted.
Acer laptops have the Bluetooth buttons, but not always have the Bluetooth Module. Check the bottom white sticker for a Bluetooth symbol under the laptop. If you do not see it, there is no Bluetooth. Also, if you press/move the Bluetooth button, and the light doesn't turn blue, there's no Bluetooth module with your laptop (only the button), so your laptop did not come with Bluetooth.

Also, you can add Bluetooth, but you need to be able to take the laptop apart to a certain extent, such as taking off the cover (top portion), keyboard, and maybe the speakers. The Bluetooth should have a 4pin, 6pin, or 8pin Bluetooth Cable connected to a Bluetooth module. You need to purchase the Bluetooth module, and install it, but you need professional help for that.

In case your laptop won't have a Bluetooth module fitted. The switch doesn't mean anything, it's present on all Acer laptops whether they have Bluetooth fitted or not.

You can buy the module as a spare part from Acer and fitting it is easy however buying a cheap USB Bluetooth dongle will be a cheaper option.

Thank You for contacting Fixya.com

Where or how do I find the wireless switch?


On the front of the laptop there is a Bluetooth button, and a wireless button.

On the front edge of the laptop, starting from the Left;

Speaker, Bluetooth button, Wireless button, Power indicator light, Battery indicator light, Microphone-In jack, Line-In jack, Headphones jack, Speaker.

The Bluetooth button has a light in the middle of it. If the light is on, Bluetooth is enabled.
If it is on, turn it off. (Push the button in, let go. The light should be off)

The Wireless button, also has a light in the middle of it. If the light is on, wireless is enabled. Be sure it is on.

During cleaning the virus out, the Bluetooth, and wireless LAN driver may have been corrupted.

Here is Acer Support, and the Drivers Download page,

http://support.acer.com/drivers_download.aspx

On this page you are going to find the wireless LAN drivers, for your Acer Travelmate 4200 PC Notebook.

1.In the Select Product Family box, Left-click on Notebook.
Wait a second, the next box will come up.

2.In the Select Product Line box, Left-click on
Travelmate.

3.In the Select Product Model box, scroll down, and left-click on Travelmate 4200.

Use the blue bar, on the right side of the Driver file name box, and scroll down.

You will see there are 3 wireless LAN drivers listed.

1.Wireless LAN - Atheros
2.Wireless LAN - Broadcom
3.Wireless LAN - Intel

Left-click on the orange box, to the left of the appropriate wireless LAN driver you need.
(Orange rectangle with down arrow pointing to a line)

A small window will come up. There is a circle to the left of - Open with,
and a circle to the left of - Save File.

Left-click on the circle to the left of - Save File.
Now go down to the right, and click on OK.

This file will either go to your Documents folder, or it will go to your desktop screen.

In either place, when you see the file name, Double-click right on it.
The Installation Wizard will come up.
Click on Next, Next, and Finish.
(Bottom of each window)

Restart your computer.

To know which wireless LAN driver you need, (Atheros, Broadcom, or Intel), go to Device Manager.

1.Left-click on Start, (Vista logo button)
2.Left-click on Control Panel
3.Left-click on System and Maintenance
4.Left-click on Device Manager

(If you are prompted for an administrator password, or confirmation, type your password)

When Device Manager loads, look at the file tree before you.
Go down to - Network adapters, and left-click on the + sign to the left.

Across from wireless LAN you will see the name.

I press the bluetooth button on my laptop and red cross apears


Acer currently maintain a wide variety of models of notebook computer in the current range, and for any given range of notebooks the onboard options may vary but the case remains constant across the range for each series of notebook. This means that some machines will have case buttons that lack functionality. The most common of these are the Bluetooth and Wireless LAN toggles on the front of many of the cases. You may have the button but the device isn't there, it is only on the more expensive models. Easily fixed by getting a USB Bluetooth adaptor

The quickest and easiest way i have found is to press the Fn button + the one that turns on your wireless networking if you have one.

But i looked up your system and it says it comes with blue tooth.

Do i have bluetooth?


Well the Acer site says that it has built-in bluetooth!(Aspire 1690) If you go to device manager (Right click on my computer, click on manage. Under System Tools in the left pane click on device manager) you should see one of the device categories there as Bluetooth, if you don't see it and see a yellow icon that means you might need to install the bluetooth drivers! If you don't either you might need another component(bluetooth hardware) for the bluetooth to work! hope this was helpful regards, babb
