Question about Acer Aspire 4530-5889 Notebook PC

2 Answers

I changed out the hard drive that came with my Acer Aspire 4530 and put Win7 on it. I see that there is a bluetooth button but when I try to turn it on it never lights up. Beyond that there is no Bluetooth controls via the control panel. I did pull out the Drivers CD that I pulled from the original hard drive and found that it has a driver set for Foxxconn Bluetooth 2.0 but it will not install on my win7 machine as it states in the error that it does not recognize bluetooth on this pc. Can you help?

Windows 7 has not been released for sale yet, what you have is the RC copy (Release candidate) which is the final beta version just before the official launch of Windows 7. Most likely some changes will be made to the final version. The reason why your Bluetooth doesn't work is because the driver for your device and many others have not been written yet by Microsoft and or the manufacturer of your device. Check the manufacturer's WEB site for the latest driver.
NOTE the Windows 7 RC copy will cease working completely in June 2010, just prior to that, you wil need to start Windows again once every hour.

Many acer notebooks have a bluetooth button but no bluetooth installed, two of the acer laptops I've owned have had the buttons for the bluetooth, but when pressed a message about No device has come up on both machines. The bluetooth is possible to be added to the machine but not installed from factory.

I'd need to know the exact model from the bottom of the laptop to confirm if it comes with bluetooth or not.

For example. Acer Aspire 1522wlmi

    Hey,

    that didn't help much, but I'm pretty sure your laptop does not have bluetooth, have you ever used bluetooth? probably doesn't have the bluetooth adapter installed. You can buy a cheap USB bluetooth dongle.

It looks like there's a 500GB drive out there for it, so I'm going to guess you can at least go to 500.

Take a look at this. They guarantee 100% compatibility it seems:

Error 0x00007b with acer aspire 4530


I think your Hard Disk is affected with some bad sectors. Try formatting the entire Hard disk. Remove anyother devices that you have, like any memory cards in slot or cds or USB drives etc.

Thank you!
