First of all you need to connect bluetooth device to the laptop because most Acer laptops don't usually come with bluetooth device but they have the software/driver that will make bluetooth to work on it. So, I will advice that you get an external bluetooth device connect it to your laptop, the bluetooth application will make the bluetooth device to work. Thanks
your laptop uses a foxconn bluetooth set. Make sure you have the proper driver for this device. Go to Acer support and make sure the driver is up to date. May look something like this:
Fox_brm_2.0 F/W 300
I believe this laptop is still using the bluetooth standard 1.1, so there shouldn't be an issue with finding another bluetooth device. Just make sure that the other devices are in discovery mode or they won't be seen regardless. Discover mode should be able to be accessed through the options tab under bluetooth. Good luck, ParrotHead PC Repair
it sounds like the blue tooth device was disabled on your computer. Try to go into the control panel and then double click on the systems icon and get into the hardware manager ( i have not had the pleasure of working much with vista so you may have to look around but you want the device manager) find the blue tooth device and right click on it and select enable. If it does not show up in this list try to refresh the list and if you cannot see it still it may be turned off in your bios. This is a whole nother set of instructions so lets see where this gets you first.
After you enable the device you will have to reinstall the driver most likely
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.
I like to inform you that Acer Aspire 5630 series has many submodels some of them them come with bluetooth. It will be better if you tell complete model number so conclusion will be more precise. Usually bluetooth device not found message comes due to absence of the BT device. you may confirm your laptop if it has Bluetooth device integrated by following link http://www.acerpanam.com/synapse/forms/portal20.cfm?recordid=511&formid=3404&website=AcerPanAm.com&siteid=7117&words=all&keywords=&areaid=2
if you confirm that if your coputes has no built in bluetooth you can buy an external USB Bluetooth device from local IT stores. Usually price $10-$50.
