There is one easier answer for Vista, there would be an icon in your system tray next to the clock that is Blue and looks like two triangles one on top of the other, but you may first need to deactivate hide inactive icons in your taskbar. To do this, right click a blank area of your Taskbar and choose properties, the resulting property sheet(s) should have a check box that lets you deactivate "hide inactive icons".

Next, there should be a Fn+Function key combination for activating onboard wireless (including Bluetooth) the blue icon on your function keytops looks like a vertical line with two radiating half circles on either side. Make this keyboard combination keystroke and you should see an onscreen display you can select with your arrow keys. If you see the Blue icon with two triangles you've got bluetooth, most displays have wireless plus Bluetooth in combination, select that. If you are not quick enough before the display goes away try again.

You model notebook does have bluetooth so please use the link below to see an overview with setup information for Bluetooth. Click here.

This is the link to setup Wireless on your laptop which should also include Bluetooth.

    I'm a little dumbfounded you rated this as inappropriate. I have tried to help you as much as I could and you get straightened out by trying pretty hard and spending a good amount of time so far on your problem. Me, I'm not ready to give up on this. Sometimes, these issues are very hard to get a grasp on using email.

    An inappropriate remark actually hurts our board rating and is usually reserved for something way off topic or to answers that have no meaning or remarks directly to the customer that are negative and perjorative. This is why we have the Thanks for Trying for those of us who work with you in the free forum who at least give it a shot and I think I did more than that.

    I can respond to your post of June 20. But if you'd rather not work with me, may I ask another Expert to confer on your Problem and ask you to not give up on us? This I can certainly do and you can click that Experts board nickname to verify his experience and overall rating on this system.

    When you found the unknown device in Device Manager this is most likely your Bluetooth hardware but checking the Internet solves a driver issue about 10% of the time. We would have you use the update driver, and point the box toward the location you unpacked the update files to on your hard drive. That should find your bluetooth.

    BTW, bluetooth on computers especially laptops is fairly new to the industry and the standards for how it should install etc are not established yet.

    Anyway, now that you have installed it as I have read your post, there should be a 'hot' key on your keyboard that is an extention of your Fn key combinations. Normally, you press and hold the Fn key plus the F key on the top row that has an antenna symbol in the same color as your Fn keytop.

    BTW, there are some laptops that have a little switch on the side or in front that's hard to notice and that must be placed in the on position. Using either of these two methods should put a display on screen to use Wireless; Wireless+Bluetooth; Bluetooth alone.

    Let me know how this works out, especially if it doesn't, or how you'd like to proceed from here.

    Thanks for your reconsideration and persistence.

There is no bluetooth available in compaq C700 so no driver would work. the workaround is you can buy USB bluetooth and use it.

Compaq presrio c700

According to the manufacturer, that model does not come with built in bluetooth support, in which case, you will need to purchase a seperate USB bluetooth dongle (prices vary from approx £25)
