I purchased a Hp dv2815nr laptop package that included a microsoft bluetooth mouse and carry case online about 10 days ago. However the laptop does not seem to be bluetooth compatible at this point. I am wondering why this package was offered in this manner if in addition to my original purchase I must now also buy a bluetooth adapter? Any person would reasonably assume if the package was offered with this mouse that it would be compatible with the laptop out of the box without further required purchase. I Also did not wish to have a adapter sticking out of a usb port all the time where it will inevitably be damaged and have to be replaced.

built in wireless receiver (either Bluetooth or 802.11b).

This small freeware utility will try to install generic Microsoftdriver for your bluetooth adapter. The program is based on a widely known method of patching %WinDir%\inf\bth.inf file. It works for most (but not all) bluetooth adapters, both USB dongles and built-in. (See the list of bluetooth devices and hardware IDs known to work. Note that this list is not exhaustive.)
Any computer with enough "horsepower" to run Microsoft Vista
came with Microsoft Vista pre-installed, plus a decal (on the side-panel of a desktop,
or the bottom of a laptop) with the 25-character product-key.
Or, if you purchased a copy of Microsoft Vista at a computer-store, the product-key was included with the packaging.
Or, if you made an online purchase, check your E-mail, including your 'JunkMail' folder, for a message containing the product-key.
Actually Acer use the same laptop case for some of their models, so the acer 4420 doesn´t have built-in bluetooth, you won´t find any driver for the bluetooth cause that reason. I have an extensa 4420-5910, have a bluetooth switch in the case but no bluetooth, if you check at Acer´s web page it say thet some models doesn´t have built-in bluetooth but the switch is in the laptop case... On the other hand, if you install an external bluetooth device, the case switch will be usefull to turn it on and off.
