Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

When I plug in my Belkin F8T013 bluetooth usb adapter, my PC (Vista 32 bit) says it needs to install the driver - but it cannot locate it from either the CD that came with the adapter nor from the downloaded 'latest' driver software. The CD has software version 6.xxx which Belkin state operates with Vista. I have not used the adapter for a month but it worked perfectly with everything installed and I connected my mobile phone successfully and paired it with my PC. I have recently installed a router usb dongle, but I cannot see why the driver problem for my bluetooth should be disrupted. Any ideas?

Rather doing a driver hunt which can take hours http://download.cnet.com/slimdrivers-free/3000-18513_4-75279940.html
Windows XP/Vista/7/8

it might take some time being a freeware driver solution Note: it will find all of your outdated drivers.

This will automatically search for and find the correct driver you will have to update every driver individually once you update you might be asked whether you want to restart or make a system restore point.
Click no to both of these then continue updating each driver free then restart once all of the drivers have been updated.

I want to istall a bluetooth to my pc but i dont know how to install it


Purchase an USB blue adapter from amazon or newegg.com
Depending on the version of windows, you might not have to install anything when you plug it in. Vista and 7 shouldn't have any issues installing it. If windows xp or failure to load on vista/7 you'll need to load the drivers from the CD that comes with the USB device.

Acer Aspire T180 is missing Video Controller Driver


Find out what type of Nvidia graphics card it is, then goto the nvidia site and download the installer from them. The installer usually supports multiple families/models of cards. But yes, you need to download the installer for Win XP pro.
You can do it manually, or have it automatically scan for the hardware and download the correct driver automatically.

Here's a link to the automatic --> http://www.nvidia.com/Download/Scan.aspx?lang=en-us

It is possible that the adaptor is not compatible with your version of windows vista, despite what the system requirements for the device say.

Below is a link where you can download the latest driver for your bluetooth adaptor. Support XP sp1, sp2, and vista. Try this driver
