Are you sure that bluetooth is installed? You should be able to look in the Device manager, usually listed under Network Adapters to see if there is such a device. If so, it is usually enabled using the HP network configuration icon in the Tray (where the clock is on the right hand side of the taskbar).

    Normally you need to "pair" bluetooth devices to make them work. A good
    example would be a bluetooth mouse. You'd just turn the mouse on (as well as
    bluetooth on the machine). You can then open the bluetooth tray icon, it should
    see the mouse, ask for confirmation (sometimes there is a number on the bottom
    of the mouse you need to type in or somesuch to confirm the device), and then
    they are paired, and the mouse works with the laptop. It should work much the
    same way with any bluetooth device - but realize there are different versions of
    bluetooth, and if the laptop has one version, and the device a different
    version, they might not pair properly.

Como activo el bluetooth de la gateway 6307


Juan Manuel,

I have to apologize that I can only post this in English. I was able to understand your question though.
You want to know how to turn on the Bluetooth Features of your Gateway 6307.

Try the instructions below:

1. Enable Bluetooth on the mobile phone or other Bluetooth enabled device. This procedure is dependent on the make and model of the phone or the device. You need to see the user manual accompanying your mobile phone or device to see how to enable Bluetooth.
2. Turn on your Gateway laptop. Check the area next to the clock in the System Tray. There should be an icon with a stylized "B" on a blue background. This is the Bluetooth icon. Double-click on this icon and select "Enable."
3. Go to Control Panel. Locate "Bluetooth Configuration" and double-click on it. A window should pop up.
4. Select the Accessibility tab. Check the option "Let other Bluetooth devices discover this computer." A check mark should appear against this entry 5. Select the Local Services tab. Startup type for all services should be set to "Auto."
6. Select "OK" and click. Wait for a few seconds. Your laptop should have Bluetooth enabled by now.
I hope this helps.

Asus laptop how do you get no wifi


Turn on your computer and locate the Wi-Fi icon.
This could be located on the upper row on a laptop it will have the radiation look (((·)))
Make sure its pressed on.
When you turn on an Asus laptop's Bluetooth function, you allow cell phones, headsets and any other Bluetooth device to be synced with or found on the laptop.
You can use Bluetooth on a laptop to listen to music on a headset or to sync and transfer files from the computer to the device.
If the Asus laptop has Bluetooth wireless technology preinstalled, you can enable Bluetooth access by changing the settings in the control panel.

Click the "Start" menu and open "Control Panel."
Select "Hardware and Sound" and "Bluetooth Devices."
If the "Bluetooth Devices" option doesn't appear, your laptop does not have Bluetooth capability.


Open "Bluetooth Settings."
Click the "Allow Bluetooth devices to find this computer" checkbox in the "Options" tab.
Click "Apply" to save your settings. Click "OK" to close the window.
Change settings for a Bluetooth enabled device

How to activate bluetooth


How to Use the Bluetooth in the Gateway Laptop
ou may have bought a new Bluetooth-capable device like a Bluetooth mobile phone, and may want to load some ringtones or media files that you have stored on your Gateway laptop. This might be the first time you are ever attempting to communicate with a Bluetooth device using your laptop. Normally, Bluetooth has to be enabled on both the devices attempting to communicate. It is no good if Bluetooth is enabled on only one of the devices. All attempts at communicating via Bluetooth will fail. However, if Bluetooth is enabled on both the devices, bringing the two in close proximity is enough for the devices to detect each other. While this is what should happen and it happens most of the time, sometimes the devices need a helping hand. Here's where you come in.
Instructions
1Enable Bluetooth on the mobile phone. This procedure is dependent on the make and model of the mobile phone. You need to see the user manual accompanying your mobile phone to see how to enable Bluetooth.
2Turn on your Gateway Laptop. Check the area next to the clock in the System Tray. There should be an icon with a stylized "B" on a blue background. This is the Bluetooth icon. Double-click on this icon and select "Enable."
3Go to Control Panel. Locate "Bluetooth Configuration" and double-click on it. A window should pop up.
4Select the Accessibility tab. Check the option "Let other Bluetooth devices discover this computer." A check mark should appear against this entry.
5Select the Local Services tab. Startup type for all services should be set to "Auto."Select "OK" and click. Wait for a few seconds. Your laptop should have Bluetooth enabled by now.


Tips & Warnings
If your laptop does not detect the mobile phone even now, turn off the phone and turn it on again while keeping it close to the laptop.

How can I on the bluetooth on my laptop aspire 4743Z?


Connecting your Bluetooth wireless phone with your laptop is called pairing, and I'll use a Blackberry Curve to show you how it works. I'm assuming your laptop comes with a built-in Bluetooth adapter (or you can also get a Bluetooth adapter that plugs into one of your USB ports).
First make sure that Bluetooth is enabled on your phone. For Blackberry phones, that means selecting the "Set Up Bluetooth" application from the main screen, and then selecting "Enable Bluetooth" after clicking the menu button.
Next, set up your computer to allow Bluetooth connections. If your computer comes with Bluetooth, then you'll see a Bluetooth icon in your Control Panel (Start button -> Control Panel from Vista):
control-panel-bluetooth.jpg Double-click the Bluetooth icon and you'll see a Bluetooth Devices dialog. Click the Options tab and make sure the options to "Allow Bluetooth devices to find this computer" and "Allow Bluetooth devices to connect to this computer" are both checked
bluetooth-devices-options.jpg Next, click the Devices tab and then click the "Add" button. This will open the Add Bluetooth Device Wizard, and after verifying that your device is set up and ready to be found (ie. Bluetooth has been enabled on your wireless phone) it will try to find your phone.
add-bluetooth-device.jpg Select the Bluetooth device and click Next to set up a passkey, which is a number that associates your computer with a Bluetooth enabled device. For security reasons, most Bluetooth enabled devices (with some exceptions, such as mice) require you to use a passkey. Using a passkey helps ensure that your computer is connecting to the device that you intended and not someone else's device that is nearby.
You can choose your own passkey or let Windows choose one for you. Click Next and then pick up your phone, which will prompt you to enter in the passkey. After entering the passkey in your phone, Windows will finish the pairing process and your phone will be connected via Bluetooth.

Can i install a bluetooth in my laptop?


If your laptop have inbuilt bluetooth facility here's how
How to Set up a Bluetooth enabled device To set up a Bluetooth enabled device, you need to do three things:
  1. 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.)
  2. 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.
  3. 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
    1. Click the Start button getcontent.aspx?assetid=4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33&documentset=en-us&renderkey=signed1, click Control Panel, click Hardware and Sound, and then click Bluetooth Devices.
    2. Click Add, and then follow the instructions.
Note
  • Encryption features and a passkey can help to secure your data. However, these and other security measures can be compromised or fail and, if that happens, your data could be visible to or accessible by other devices or computers within range. Therefore, Bluetooth wireless technology should not be considered completely secure.

How do I start bluetooth on the qosmio g25-av13?


Try the ff:

1. Are you also using a wireless internet? If you are and you cannot also connect on wireless, make sure that the wireless is enabled on your laptop. On the left side of the laptop there is a on/off switch push the switch to on. (beside the usb port).

2. if it is already on, make sure that the bluetooth is enabled also, you can check it on control panel, system, hardware, device manager, bluetooth, right click on bluetooth driver, if you see enable bluetooth click on it, if you see"disable bluetooth" that means it is already enabled.

3. If the above is already configured, lastly, look for the bluetooth icon (bluetooth manager) on the lower part of the screen on the taskbar/tray if you see the bluetooth icon, right-click on it then click "Enable Bluetooth Radio". Now, if there is no bluetooth icon on the tray at the lower right of the screen, go to Start, Toshiba, Bluetooth, Bluetooth Settings, inside the Bluetooth SEttings, click on Bluetooth, Options, CLick on Enable Bluetooth Power, also, inside the Tray Icon (still inside Bluetooth Settings) select an icon so you can always see the status of your bluetooth on the Tray and you don;t need to do and check everything everytime you cannot connect via Bluetooth.

Hope this helps.
