Please, be precise. What kind of problem do you have? Having poblem enabling bluetooth device? Or your bluetooth device enabled and you can't transfer files?
If your bluetooth device isn't enabled, go to control panel and check if device is installed correctly. (bluetooth device mustn't have yellow mark).
If your bluetooth device have yellow mark in control panel, that means you need drivers for this device.
You can install drivers from your laptop's CD. If you don't get CD, no problem, download it here:
Follow installation instructions and you are done.
It is very likely that the Dell operator was right and the bluetooth option is not installed on your system. You will have to buy a USB bluetooth dongle or adapter. click on control panel click on bluetooth devices if its there, is there anything listed as available? also in control panel click on system > device manager and see if any bluetooth devices are listed there. If not you don't have the option built in to your laptop
My Acer Aspire has a bluetooth button but it doesn't have bluetooth built in, this is because Acer has lots of different model variations but the exterior looks the same and they use the same hard drive image across the whole model range, this is why I have the software installed but cannot use it as I have no bluetooth device, you can check if you have by right clicking on '(My) Computer' icon then choose manage and then device manager, do you see any bluetooth devices, if not then this is the reason why it's not working.
Actually Acer use the same laptop case for some of their models, so the acer 4420 doesn´t have built-in bluetooth, you won´t find any driver for the bluetooth cause that reason. I have an extensa 4420-5910, have a bluetooth switch in the case but no bluetooth, if you check at Acer´s web page it say thet some models doesn´t have built-in bluetooth but the switch is in the laptop case... On the other hand, if you install an external bluetooth device, the case switch will be usefull to turn it on and off.
Set up a Bluetooth enabled deviceTo set up a Bluetooth enabled device, you need to do three things:
Add a Bluetooth adapter to your computer. This is usually done by plugging the adapter into a USB port. (If a Bluetooth adapter is already built in or attached to your computer, ignore this step.)
Set up the device so that your computer can find it. To do this, you must:
Turn the device on.
Make it discoverable.
To learn how to make a device discoverable, check the information that came with your device or go to the manufacturer’s website.
Install the device. To install most devices, such as a mobile phone, keyboard, mouse, or personal digital assistant (PDA), you can use Bluetooth Devices in Control Panel. If you have Bluetooth wireless technology installed on your computer, follow these steps:
To install a Bluetooth enabled device
Click the Start button , click Control Panel, click Hardware and Sound, and then click Bluetooth Devices.
