Bluetooth Control Panel Missing in Reinstalled Windows XP with SP2

I had to reinstall windows XP from the original MS support disk. It was pre-SP2 so I had to install that and all updates as well.

Everything has worked well with a single exception. I have a logitech DiNovo bluetooth keyboard and mouse that worked fine before having to reinstall. Now they don't.

I read the MS knowledgebase articles and determined that there is supposed to be a bluetooth control panel, but it doesn't exist.

I've tried the following:

None of this helped. Unfortunately the maker of my PC is now out of business so I cannot go back to them.

Any ideas on how to get my bluetooth functionality back would be most welcome.

    Thanks for the helpful suggestion - it was certainly more directly appropriate than anything else I'd found.

    Unfortunately it didn't fix my problem. I followed the steps that it recommends if you've already installed SP2: removing BT software and checking that there's no BT device in the USB manager, then plugging in my Logitech BT dongle. Windows didn't go looking for the software and I still don't see a BT control panel.

    Any further suggestions?

What is the name of the bluetooth system files for hcl leaptop b38 laptop


Bluetooth might work with SP2 and 3 installed but you will probably have to get the drivers from the manufacturers web site, bearing in mind XP is no longer supported!

Free recovery disks for hp pavillion zd8000 with windows 7


As far as I know, the original zd8000 operating system is Windows XP. If you have Windows 7 installed, then you need to get Windows 7 disc and its product key. If you need the Windows XP reinstallation media, then you can use HP Windows XP reinstallation disc only (for example: HP Windows XP Professional with SP2 disc).

Deleting old SP1 partition on dell 2400


Sound like you have two versions of the operating system out there. Not sure what your question is. If you want to remove the old version you should have done that while you were doing the installation. That would have been easy by just telling the system to do it for you.

Now you will probably need some type of partitioning software and i'm not sure if you just delete it if it will cause problems when you try to boot because windows knows it's out there.

If I were you, I would just reinstall windows and clean the disk of everything. It shows you what it finds out there as far as operating systems, so just delete them both, then do a quick NTFS format of the drive and reinstall windows.

Windows xp home edition reinstall


If you use his disk, that will be better, because if it is original HP disk, it should install all original drivers at all, however this may delete all files on the computer depending on the type of installation you do.

Installing an older version of XP home does not make a big difference , as windows will update the system using automatic updates. What must be done, is ensuring that all proper drivers are installed.

Check device manager, in control panel/system, and see if all devices are installed with proper drivers.
