From what I was told was that if you have the bluetooth switch all it means is that it is bluetooth compatible. If you move the switch to the left and the light turns blue then you have bluetooth, if not and it gives the "no bluetooth device" then you do not have the bluetooth module ($60-120) plus installation. I find that really cheap to put a switch but not the module.

I have the same problem. Here is the solution, the laptop was designed to accept a bluetooth module but that module was not installed in the factory. The button was pretty much still included in the laptop, I would guess as a teaser. I would think if you put a button on for bluetooth you would install the card, it probably cost all of 5 bucks to manufacture.

I have been down the same road, 5052 AWXMi and XP. No Bluetooth or Blue light. Contacted Acer and after many emails I got nowhere accept to be told that they are generic machines and because you have a switch does not mean you have Bluetooth. So much for the experts. However I was playing with my PDA and it found a strong bluetooth signal. Switching the acer on and off confirmed the signal was coming from the Acer. Turning the bluetooth switch on and off made no difference. So its working but how to you configure it ? I was also told that despite the fact that it is in the manual does mean anything they to are generic. What a load of S...
