    my bluethooth and wifi devices are not working after installing Windows XP. initialy Vista was installed in this laptop.

    dude, i was told by another guy, that migrating from XP to Vista had made the difference in his machine.... and even i believed it, cause this machine is 64 bit machine and Xp is only 32 bit. Vista is 64 bit which matches the Acer configuration... Although i have not tried it, i believe it should work......

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.

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...

Have you tried restarting the computer? if you already did try running windows updates see if there any updates for your blue tooth and if theres none check the manufacturer web site they might have a new driver that might fix your problem just by installing it

NO DEVICE


the machine doesnt have a blue tooth device installed thats all,They make the machines with the option of expanding to new device functions as standard then they can add the components you need ie blue tooth,theres a button but no device installed,you will have to buy a blue tooth device to install on the machine,

Bluetooth on acer 5520


some do and some dont, blue tooth is optional on most laptops.
the best way to find out is to try to install the blue tooth driver from the acer web site.. it will be able to tell you if it is installed.

Please ensure Bluetooth is enabled in the BIOS. You may have to press F2 or DEL key as the system boots to get into BIOS.

Blue tooth device is not working


hi,
check if your device is enabled, you can do this by ---
right click my computer..-> properties--> hardware tab--> device manager --> right click on the blue tooth icon and clcik properties. --> check if enabled..

if it is enabled check if bluetooth is enabled at startup { type msconfig in RUN in start menu, click startup tab..check if it is enbaled in startup}... or else you have to manually switch on bluetooth each time u intend to use... hope it helps.

hope to get rated as helpful...
