    The Laptop runs on a Vista, HOME EDITION.

    The only sign of bluetooth on the laptop is just the bluetooth button in the first row of key. There is no driver installed on it. I can't find the bluetooth in neither the control panel or device manager.



    Each time I hit the bluetooth button, it gives the message " NO BLUETOOTH DEVICE"



    Laptop Model: ACER ASPIRE 5720 - 4126



    Please help fix this.

Hi,

I looks like Acer designed this Notebook for Windows Vista only.

Have you wiped Vista and installed XP instead? If so is there a particular reason, like an old piece of software not working with Vista?

I would be inclined to put Vista back on it. Vista is much better and safer than XP once you get used to it, Especially on a laptop.

If you really want to keep XP, try looking for an older Acer notebook with the same bluetooth adaptor that came with XP installed and see if the driver works from that, its a long shot though.

    Hi,

    Looking around the web at the differente spec sheets on that model I cant find any that say this notebook has bluetooth.

    I think it's likely that Acer make an option with bluetooth using the same case and include the same setup CD as with your notebook. That is why when you press the bluetooth button, the screen say 'Not available'.

    Check the specification with the supplier you bought your notebook from to see if it should have bluetooth.

    You can add bluetooth to the notebook by buying a USB bluetooth dongle (adaptor) but this will use up one of your USB sockets and protrude from the PC when plugged in.

    I hope this helps to clarify the issue.

    Regards

    Andy

Sounds like you need the driver installed for the bluetooth...here is a link to the Acer site with drivers for your model:

http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/notebook/as_one_D250.html

Just select the bluetooth driver from the first drop-down menu and install it, that should solve your problem.

Hope this helped
