Bluetooth Problems with Acer Aspire 5538: I upgraded from Vista to Windows 7 Home Premium. My device manager does not show my bluetooth. When I install the drivers, it says it can't find it. I tried taking my laptop apart and it's buried deep inside so I don't want to mess around with the intricate parts. I can't seem to figure out what driver windows 7 has given my bluetooth adaptor and Acer is useless to try and help me except to say they can help me do factory restore. Well great for you, that's windows vista...YOU sent me Windows 7 with a useless upgrade kit that doesn't help me install the bluetooth. I am at a loss. Also a side note, the touchpad drivers arent the right ones either as they cause my mouth to be choppy or jumpy if you will and the functions dont work like auto scroll and pinch etc. I will never buy an acer again! HELP!

If your Acer Aspire is anything like mine (AX1420-UR12P) then you have a great compture. You just need to "?nable" it to use Bluetooth. I use windows 10 but 7 shouldn't be much different. Go to settings where you see the Features, and select option to turn on or off systems features. You'll have a list and on it is enabling Bluetooth. without using this feature its impossible to connect

SOURCE: Acer Aspire 5610 Bluetooth not working.

There ain't no Bluetooth on this model. It's just a fake light. It will let you do everything to make it look as if it is working, but in reality, it's an add-on. Check your manual. It conned me too. Gary

I upgrade my acer laptop from vista to windows 7 and i can't find my Bluetooth device. How can i have a Bluetooth device? Please help me.


Hi,

Please right click on My Computer - Properties - Device Manager & check your device status there. I can sure your bluetooth is not functioning cause by no driver installed for your device.

Please go to www.acer.co.uk and download bluetooth driver for your laptop & install it. Make sure you turn on your bluetooth switch first.

HAVE UPGRADED TO WINDOWS 7 HOME PREMIUM ON MY ACER 9301 LAPTOP. NOW MY BLUETOOTH AND ORBICAM DOES NOT WORK. CAN YOU PLEASE ASSIST.


I would check for windows 7 specific drivers for the bluetooth and the orbicam. Beyond that, I have heard and experienced problems with windows 7 not supporting all accessories and peripherals of laptops.

For instance, I had a basically unsolvable problem with the scroll keys on the touchpad not working after upgrading to windows 7 from Vista on an Aspire 3680 series laptop which was only a few years old.

I had to find a workaround for it, by using the arrow keys instead.

You might have to try workarounds for your problems, like getting a new external webcam for the webcam problem.

The bluetooth is a little bit harder to fix, though, because it's integrated into the computer, generally, like my touchpad.

Windows xp sp3 driver problems on an acer aspire


You should not NEED to install the chipset driver unless there are items in device manager such as (SMBUS controller) that show up with a yellow exclamation point or show up as unknown. Acer is (unfortunately) notorious for putting bluetooth switches and software on laptops that don't have have bluetooth cards from the manufacturer - these laptops are just "bluetooth ready" meaning you will need to install a bluetooth card for it to work.
