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 to turn on bluetooth on acer aspire one zg5 laptop


When I saw the specification http://gdgt.com/acer/aspire/one/zg5/specs/
I noticed that your laptop doesn't have a build in bluetooth device. You must buy a USB bluetooth device from somewhere. For example
http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Rocketfish%26%23153%3B+-+Micro+Bluetooth+USB+Adapter/8820886.p?skuId=8820886&st=bluetooth%20dongle&lp=1&cp=1&id=1207351932175
or if you find cheaper.
Good Luck.

You don't have bluetooth in that laptop. You must buy a separate USB dongle and install it. Here's one

Have an acer aspire sa80, formatted hard drive, no missing : Multimedia Audio Controller Video Controller (VGA Compatible) USB Controller drivers. I use a dongle to access wireless internet, and as usb not...


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.

Bluetooth installation


You have to purchase a seperate bluetooth transmitter to do it. Sometimes the 802.11 wireless can interfere with bluetooth and vice versa. Make sure you have one or the other on when using them.
