WinXP SP2 not detecting bluetooth device

I have an Acer Travelmate 5620 notebook. It originally came with Windows Vista loaded. The LED buttons for W/LAN and Bluetooth worked fine and the bluetooth device appeared in my Device Manager. I even connected my cellphone successfully via bluetooth.

After formatting and installing Windows XP with SP2, neither LED button works, my bluetooth device is not detected (it does not appear under device manager and I have no 'unknown device' listed here either). I've installed the latest Widcomm bluetooth software that I got from the Acer support site specifically for this notebook and WinXP, but when I click the blue/red icon in the taskbar, all I get is 'no bluetooth devices'. I know I have the hardware as it used to work before I formatted!!! I've spent hours, trying all kinds of tweaks and software. There is nothing in my Bios that allows me to enable/disable devices.

I've come across other threads of people with the same kind of problem (WinXP SP2 not detecting integrated bluetooth), but no solution yet. I think that if I can get those 2 buttons working, then I'd be able to at least turn the bluetooth device 'on' so that windows would detect it and I could point it to the drivers...

Also, the ePowerManagement does not work with dot net framework 2.0+ installed (all features are disabled). That worked fine with Dot Net Framework 1.1, but I need 2.0 installed (else SQL Server 2005 doesn't install....). ePower Management used to allow me to enable my bluetooth, then it worked 100%.

Please, anyone who can help, I'd be most grateful.

I have a Acer TravelMate 244xv and it has a bluetooth button on the case but it does not work and I do not have a bluetooth icon in my control panel. Is there a way I can remotely update my laptop to...


It may be that the 244XV does not have a Bluetooth module installed as standard. Some of the TravelMate 240 series may have it installed, so they used the same casing for the whole range.

If your button does not work and there is no icon, check your device manager for missing drivers. If nothing is missing, I would surmise that there is no Bluetooth device inside your machine.

You can obtain the drivers for this machine from Acer (see URL: ftp://ftp.acer-euro.com/notebook/TravelMate_24x_25x/, and click driver, followed by your OS - Windows XP or Windows 2k). The Bluetooth driver is there, but it will only make any difference if you have the relevant device installed.

Good luck.

Touchpad not working after re-install windows XP SP2.


You can't load Windows XP over Vista. Microsoft has it in the BIOS that it cannot be overlaid with an older system. The only way to use XP is to attempt to dual-boot but that will take you some research. Load vista back...don't blame me Microsoft screwed us..

Pls rate solution.

Bluetooth module on Acer Travelmate 4002 WLCi


Hey Enrico, Check out this thread about installing the module into the exact same laptop: http://www.notebookforums.com/thread185110.html
This particular post (found down the page on page 2 of the thread) reveals that someone has succesfully installed it without the need for drivers: http://www.notebookforums.com/post2555643-3.html
Follow that thread and check that you have installed the module in the correct location as described in a couple of the messages in the thread.

Bluetooth problem


It doesn't detect the bluetooth device. But what I can't understand is why does the 4020 have the front button if there's no device.

Thanks again...

Bluetooth not installing on WinXP


Hi,

I looks like Acer designed this Notebook for Windows Vista only.

Have you wiped Vista and installed XP instead? If so is there a particular reason, like an old piece of software not working with Vista?

I would be inclined to put Vista back on it. Vista is much better and safer than XP once you get used to it, Especially on a laptop.

If you really want to keep XP, try looking for an older Acer notebook with the same bluetooth adaptor that came with XP installed and see if the driver works from that, its a long shot though.
