Does this computer have bluetooth? - Computers & Internet

    If you are running Windows, go to the System control panel and click on the Device Manager tab. Look for a Bluetooth device in the list.

    If you are running Mac OS X, go to "About This Mac" in the blue apple menu and click on "More Info..." to see if a Bluetooth transceiver is listed in the Hardware.

    There is a similar function somewhere in Linux, but the way to find it depends on what distribution you are running.

    If you want us to answer the question, you'd have to give us the brand and model number of your computer.

How do I automatically start Bluetooth?

<p>Bluetooth is a wireless connection method used for two different devices together, like a computer, cell phone, headset or sync. You are required to enter code synchronization when connecting two devices, but most likely you do not want to enter this information each time you want to sync the hardware. Instead, you can automatically start the Bluetooth devices in sync with each other. <br /> <p><br /> <p>1. Turn on the Bluetooth device (such as a headset) and the hardware you want to synchronize with the equipment (such as your computer or mobile phone). <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Click the "Start" button when using a computer, select "Control Panel" and finally "Hardware and Sound". Select "Bluetooth Devices" and click "Add" and wait for the computer to search for Bluetooth devices. Press "Setup" when using a mobile phone, select "Bluetooth" and activate the configuration. This allows the phone to search for the Bluetooth device. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Select the Bluetooth device, once it is detected (both computers and mobile phones) and enter your pair of four-digit code (listed in the user manual of Bluetooth device). <br /> <p><br /> <p>4. Press "OK" on your computer or mobile phone connects to Bluetooth. Now each time the devices are enabled on the phone and the computer automatically detect and connect to Bluetooth devices. <br />

Bluetooth is not responding

which bluetooth device ? are you referring to ?
keyboard , mouse , ahh a webcam ?

Bluetooth is a wireless technology that connects devices over a limited-range network (WPAN, or wireless personal area network). Bluetooth transfers data three to eight times faster than a parallel or serial port.

Some Lenovo PCs includes an internal Bluetooth card to allow users to connect Bluetooth devices to the computer. Inactive Bluetooth support or computer settings can prevent the Lenovo PC from detecting a Bluetooth device.

Hold down "Fn" and "F5" after booting the computer or returning from standby to enable Bluetooth features. Click "Start." Click "Control Panel." Double-click "Bluetooth Configuration." Select the "Accessibility" tab. Check "Let other Bluetooth devices discover this computer." Select "All devices" from the drop-down menu. Click "OK." Double-click "Bluetooth Devices." Select the "Options" tab. Check "Turn discovery on," "Allow Bluetooth devices to connect to this computer" and "Alert me when a new Bluetooth device wants to connect." Click "OK." Exit from "Control Panel." Align the device with the Lenovo PC. Check the documentation included with the device to confirm it is the correct distance from the computer. Right-click "Start." Click "Explore" or "Open." Navigate to "My Bluetooth Places." Click "Bluetooth Tasks." Click "View Devices in Range" to locate the device. Select the device from the list. Click "Discover services" to use the device's applications on your Lenovo PC. Right-click the device and select "Connect" or "Pair" to configure the device. Hope it helps.

I have my plantronics discovery 975 paired to my computer and my phone. It is supposed to automatically connect when I skype and it doesn't. When it is connected it only lasts for less than a minute...

  1. Make sure you are using the latest version of Skype.
  2. Make sure that Bluetooth works on your computer. You can refer to your computer manufacturer's documentation or website for details on how to set up Bluetooth on your computer. You want to ensure that the Bluetooth software and drivers (known as the Bluetooth stack) on your computer supports the Headset Profile (HSP). It's recommended that you download and install the latest drivers for your Bluetooth stack.
  3. Pair your Bluetooth device with your computer. How you do this will depend on both the Bluetooth stack on your computer, and the Bluetooth device you are using.
  4. Make the Bluetooth device your Skype audio device:
  • Sign in to Skype and in the Tools menu, select Options...
  • Under Audio settings, select your Bluetooth device from the Microphone, Speakers and Ringing drop-down list.
  • Remember that not all Bluetooth headset features may be available when making a call with Skype. For example, whether the buttons on your headset function correctly depends on your Bluetooth stack.
Good luck from Headsets Direct!
