How to activate bluetooth in a leptop


Check to see that the laptop has a Bluetooth adapter installed. Click on the "Start" menu in the lower-left corner of the desktop. Click on "Control Panel." Click on "Performance and Maintenance" and then on "System." Click the "Hardware" tab in the System Properties window. Click on the "Device Manager" button. Look for a small blue icon that says "Bluetooth Devices." Click on the "+" next to it to expand the menu. There should be at least one Bluetooth device listed. This indicates that your laptop has a Bluetooth adapter. Turn on the Bluetooth device by locating the physical or software switch that activates the adapter. Check the outside edge of the laptop for a button or switch that is labeled "Bluetooth," shows a picture of the Bluetooth icon or is labeled "Wireless." Turn this to the "On" position. If no physical switch exists, check the function keys on top of the keyboard. Look for one that shows a wireless symbol. This may look like a small antenna with waves radiating out from the top. Hold down the "Fn" or "Function" button and press the corresponding function key until the computer indicates that Bluetooth is turned on. Locate the Bluetooth icon in the system tray in the lower-right corner of the desktop. It will match the appearance of the Bluetooth icon you located in the Device Manager. It may have a red symbol in the center that indicates that the Bluetooth is turned off. Right-click on this icon and choose "Start the Bluetooth Device" from the menu. Test the Bluetooth by connecting a Bluetooth device. Right-click on the Bluetooth icon in the system tray. Use the "Quick Connect" option or follow the Bluetooth setup wizard accessed through the "Add a Bluetooth Device" option. Hope this helps.

Bluetooth problem.


If you have a Bluetooth icon in the tray notification area OR in the Control Panel right click on the icon, go to settings, choose setting to Allow device to find computer, (I'm not sure of the correct wording). I'm not sure what a HUD is on a computer.

Bluetooth option doesn't show in my laptop


You can find the Control Panel by clicking on the "Start" menu and selecting "Control Panel."


Click on the icon that reads "Hardware and Sound." Then, select the tab that reads "Bluetooth Devices."


Click on the "Add" button. This will put your computer in "Search Mode."

This means that it will search for any compatible Bluetooth devices in the area.


Put your Bluetooth device in "Discovery Mode."

This can be done by pressing and holding the button on the side of the device.

This will cause the device to send out a signal that will be received by the laptop computer.


Select your device from the list of found devices on your laptop.

Once this is done, your laptop and Bluetooth device will be permanently connected as long as they are both turned on.


hope this helps

Bluetooth won't work and even won't turn on with win7


- Download the 'Windows Mobile Device Center which you can download it from
this works for both Vista and Windows 7. I've tried it on both.

Install the downloaded software but it may not look like it worked on Windows 7 PCs. Vista automatically configures the settings on the bluetooth devices but for those who have Windows 7, here are the things you should do:

- Go to 'Device Manager' from 'Control Panel' -Or- just right-click on Computer Icon and choose 'Properties' and then click on 'Device Manager'.

- You'll see an 'Unknown Device' named 'Bluetooth Peripheral Device'
- Right-Click it and click on "Update Driver Software" -Or- anyway you find it easy to bring up the Update driver window.

- Click "Browse My Computer for Driver Software" button.

- Click "Let Me Pick from a List of Device Drivers on my computer".

- Select 'Bluetooth Radio' from the list if it asked you to select and then in the next window, it will show a list of drivers with Company Names in one list and Drivers in another. In the Company List choose 'Microsoft Corporation', not only Microsoft.

- From the drivers list there may be one or more drivers with the name "Windows Mobile-Based Device Support" with different driver versions. Select one or the latest.
- Ignore any warnings and keep pressing next and then Finish at last. If all goes well, the last screen will show the message that device driver is successfully installed.

Now, after manually updating the driver for your bluetooth device, in 'Device Manager' when you click on 'Bluetooth Radios', it should display one more item which will say 'Windows Mobile-based device support'.

There are few more things that you want to pay attention to. If you have already added the device in your 'bluetooth device list' that didn't work, then remove the device and add it again. After you add it, you might need to restart the computer if it gave you a connection problem error message.

I hope this will help you guys fix your bluetooth problem with Windows 7.Rate me if the message was helpfull.

Thanks

  • Open your computer's Control Panel center to access your Bluetooth Device settings. Click on the Windows icon or the "Start" icon on your computer desktop's taskbar at the bottom of the screen. When the pop-up menu opens, click on the "Control Panel" link.
  • Step 2 Access your Bluetooth Device settings. When the Control Panel opens, click on the settings link that reads, "Bluetooth Devices." This link will display all of the possible actions and settings you can take regarding your laptop'smag-glass_10x10.gif Bluetooth technology.
  • Step 3 Configure your laptop's Bluetooth technology. Select the "Start the Bluetooth Device" action. The blue and white Bluetooth icon will appear in the Windows System tray within the computer desktop's taskbar.
  • Step 4 Network with another device in order to import and export files. Double-click on the blue and white Bluetooth icon on your computer desktop's taskbar. A Bluetooth dialog window will appear on your screen displaying your Bluetooth technology portal. Click on the "Add Devices" action. You will then be asked if your laptop would like to search for other compatible devices. Click "Next" to proceed. You will be prompted to choose a passkey for the pairing. Create a simple passkey and click on the "Pair" option. When the notification is received by the other device, enter the same passkey to pair the device to your laptop.

    Control panel does not show bluetooth icon. Why?


    Run services.msc (which is the service management tool)
    You should see a Bluetooth Support Service, set this to start and then have it automatically start with windows as well.

    Bluetooth control panel application: bthprops.cpl


    Bluetooth listed in my actual control panel.

    However you may need to reinstall BT again and check for the properties of it.

    Please check the steps and let me know if it works.
