You dongle probably has a cap on it. Remove the cap and you should see the USB connector.
i have purchased a bluetooth - 6db1c7c.jpg64481f1.jpg

Now all you have to do is locate the USB port on your computer and plug it in. If it does not seem to fit, try flipping it the other side and see. All USB Bluetooth dongles come with a USB connector (Thats why they are called "USB" dongles)

Here is a pic of what a USB port looks like on your PC/laptop:

Should your dongle not match the image above, kindly try to send a pic or give me the make and model, and I will assist you further.

Hello there.

I have found a picture of the back of your computer. Please see below. The picture is a little small im sorry.
i have purchased a bluetooth - e235341.gif

A bluetooth dongle connects over the USB port in your computer, while you have some slots in the back you should have some in the front as well. They look like this:

Hope this helps.

    Hello again.

    Your dongle should plug directly into the USB port, no cable is required.

    Devices such as printers will use a long USB cable to plug into the computer, but your dongle is a much smaller device so it goes directly into the USB port. It will only insert one way.

How do I find Bluetooth on dell optiplex755 small tower


Hi juan...
You do not have Bluetooth on the Dell OptiPlex 755, but you can buy a "Bluetooth Dongle" very cheaply from the internet.
It is a plug and play you insert into the usb port and then you have Bluetooth.
Bud
Go to the following webpage to see a Bluetooth dongle

Usb dongle is not working


Step 1:
A Bluetooth dongle is an external Bluetooth device used to enable your PC's Bluetooth connection. Many Bluetooth dongles come without installation disks since the software is pre-programmed into the actual USB stick. These Bluetooth dongles are very useful on netbooks that don't have Bluetooth connection, since netbooks have no CD-Rom drives. Turn on your PC. Insert the USB Bluetooth dongle into the USB port on your desktop tower, or the USB ports located on the perimeter of your laptop. Wait for the program to auto run. Once you connect your dongle, the driver program should launch. Follow the onscreen prompts to install the dongle. A dialogue box should open that says "Installing Drivers" from the taskbar. Allow the driver to install completely before closing the box. Unplug the dongle and restart your PC. Once the PC has been switched on, insert the dongle. Double-click "My Bluetooth Places." This is the Bluetooth icon located in your taskbar, and it should launch the "Initial Bluetooth Configuration Wizard." Click "Next" on the first screen. Next, type in the name of your computer and select your computer type from the drop-down menu, then click "Next." Click "Skip" on the onscreen prompts, then finish. Pairing the Devices Turn on your external Bluetooth device. Double-click "My Bluetooth Places." Select "Find Bluetooth Devices." The name your Bluetooth device should display in the next window. Right click the icon for your Bluetooth device, and scroll down to "Pair Device." Enter the Bluetooth pin code for your external device in the "Bluetooth Pin Code Request" pop-up window. Then click "OK." The default pin code is normally "0000" or "12345." You can find your pin code in your user manual. If you are pairing a cell phone to your PC, you will have to enter the same pin code on your cell phone to establish the Bluetooth connection.

Hi,
You need drivers for your system.
All the official acer drivers for your system are here :-

http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/desktop/power_s260.html#driver

As listed at the site:-

Realtek Audio Driver is your Multimedia Audio Controller.
NVIDIA VGA Driver should be your Video Controller, if that don't work try SIS VGA Driver.

SiS 661 chipset driver should fix your usb problem, if it dosn't update windows to SP2.
Get that from here: http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com/. Then try again with SiS 661 Chipset Driver.

You should also install the rest of the drivers for your aspire sa80.

You said you had no access to internet so burn the drivers using a friends computer (one with internet) and install from the disc and you should be fine.
