Activating bluetooth I bought a Dell Inspiron 1420 on bestbuy and it said it had bluetooth, when opening bluetooth options on my computer, it only gives me the option to add or search for bluetooth devices, but not to turn on my own device. How can i turn on or install my bluetooth device?

The built in bluetooth on your laptop will automatically search for any bluetooth device when you click on search for. As long as the device is turned on. After finding it, then it will run you through the set up process. If it doesn't find the device, then it may not be compatble. If this doesn't help, get back to me and let me know exactly what you're trying to do and I'll see if I can get you more info.

How do i turn on my bluetooth for my inspiron 1420

Hello and Welcome to FixYa!

The most general way is this;

  • Start
  • All Programs
  • Bluetooth
  • Go to settings or wireless file transfer.
  • Once its open, a little Bluetooth icon should appear in your task bar (lower right of the screen).
  • Find it, right click and go to "Power On."

If you are still having problems do tell me.

And IF I was helpful, Kindly do rate!

Regards, WAQAR.

The fan could be faulty (ie stopped spinning) or the heatsing vents are clogged with dust.
Remove the fan and check/clean the vents/fan. If the fan is faulty replace it.
