I have an inspiron 1525 laptop. Its bluetooth is not working.Where do i get the driver and how to install it


You need to use your CD with drivers from Dell and unzip the bluetooth driver to C:\dell\drivers\R140135. close the Fn + F2 thing and go to that location. You will see 2 folders Win32 & Win 64 of vista version you have installed . Launch "Inst.exe" and wait until another Fn+F2 prompt will apear. Close this prompt and the install will finish. Restart your computer and after Vista boots up you will see in the tray the bluetooh icon. Right Click to turn the adapter on and the drivers will be reinstalled.

I need to switch on my bluetooth of Dell Inspiron 1525, whenever I download its driver, it asks me to press Fn + F2 keys, but they are not functioning in my case. I dont know how to use bluetooth now :/...


right click on my computer, select manage, look for the exclamation mark (there is probably one next to the bluetooth device) click on the device and then click update driver, when it asks if you want to install automatically or to select a specific location, select specific location and locate the driver select it and click next (or ok I forget what the options it gives are) also check to make sure that the device is enabled (should tell you on the properties for the device) I am inclined to think that the fn/f2 is probably just to turn the device on and off .

How to attach bluetooth device


1) INSTALL THE BLUETOOTH DRIVER PROVIDED FOR YOUR SYSTEM. IT WILL ASK YOU TO ACTIVATE BLUETOOTH BY PRESSING FN+F2 KEY. THIS DOES NOT WORK!

2) YOU MANUALLY INSTALL THE SOFTWARE FOR THE DRIVER...

NOTE : HERE SOME OF YOU MAY HAVE INSTALLED THE DRIVERS ALREADY BUT JUST CANNOT START THE CONNECTION...SO THERE IS A PROBLEM IN THE SOFTWARE WHICH BLUETOOTH USES AND NOT THE DRIVER.

FOR INSTALLATION OF THE SOFTWARE FOLLOW THESE STEPS.

3) GO TO YOUR DRIVER INSTALLATION DIRECTORY (EX. C:\dell\drivers) THEN YOU FIND WHICH DRIVER YOU INSTALLED FOR YOUR BLUETOOTH ( FOR INSPIRON 1525 IT IS - R140135 ). HOW DO I KNOW THAT I HAVE THE SAME LAPTOP! ;p

4) THEN YOU FIND YOUR SYSTEM YOU ARE RUNNING ( A 32 BIT OR A 64 BIT ) IT WILL WRITTEN AS Win32 OR Win64.

5) THEN YOU FIND THE INSTALLATION FILE....TYPICALLY IT SET-UP BUT I DONT THINK IN THIS CASE IT IS 'CUZ IT DIDN'T WORK FOR ME...SO IT WILL BE SOMETHING LIKE "INST". IT IS AN APPLICATION.

THERE JUST INSTALL THE APPLICATION AND THEN IT WILL BE ALL READY ONCE AGAIN....

P.S. DONT FORGET TO TURN YOUR BLUETOOTH ADAPTER ON AFTER YOU INSTALL THE SOFTWARE.
