On some laptops the switch used to disable WiFi also disables bluetooth. If that's not the case for you, you can turn bluetooth off by simply right clicking on the bluetooth icon in the System Tray (next to the clock on the Start bar) and clicking "Turn Adapter Off"

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.

Acer Travelmate 5620 bluetooth button won't turn on


Hi,

Do you actually see the Bluetooth device in device manager? Normally if it's not turned on it won't appear in device manager. The next thing I can think of is that if the Bluetooth module was not turned on when you loaded the drivers then they won't work.
And lastly the module may have come lose or unseated from the slot. Are you absolutely 100% sure there's Bluetooth hardware on this laptop? Is this built-in or a USB dongle?

If built-in have you turned it on? Acer uses a slide switch to turn Bluetooth and Wireless LAN on and off.
The first thing you probably need to establish is whether the laptop has a Bluetooth module fitted. Plenty of Acer laptops support Bluetooth in some markets and not in others and actually have slider switches to turn Bluetooth on/off but don't have the Bluetooth module fitted.

Does the unit say that it supports Bluetooth on the sticker attached to the front of the laptop? The models that have Bluetooth typically have this listed on these and will also list it on the packaging that came with the laptop that lists its specs. If it doesn't mention it odds are it's not fitted.
Acer laptops have the Bluetooth buttons, but not always have the Bluetooth Module. Check the bottom white sticker for a Bluetooth symbol under the laptop. If you do not see it, there is no Bluetooth. Also, if you press/move the Bluetooth button, and the light doesn't turn blue, there's no Bluetooth module with your laptop (only the button), so your laptop did not come with Bluetooth.

Also, you can add Bluetooth, but you need to be able to take the laptop apart to a certain extent, such as taking off the cover (top portion), keyboard, and maybe the speakers. The Bluetooth should have a 4pin, 6pin, or 8pin Bluetooth Cable connected to a Bluetooth module. You need to purchase the Bluetooth module, and install it, but you need professional help for that.

In case your laptop won't have a Bluetooth module fitted. The switch doesn't mean anything, it's present on all Acer laptops whether they have Bluetooth fitted or not.

You can buy the module as a spare part from Acer and fitting it is easy however buying a cheap USB Bluetooth dongle will be a cheaper option.

Thank You for contacting Fixya.com

My Laptop's Bluetooth Won't Turn On. I Push FN + F6 (Which Is To Turn On Bluetooth) And It Doesn't Work. It Just Keeps Telling Me Bluetooth Off. My System Information Says This Driver Is Off. Any Help...


Which model laptop is this? Many of the Gateway laptops have 2 switches for the Bluetooth. There is a physical switch on the front or side of the system that needs to be turned on for both the wireless LAN and the Bluetooth to work.
The physical switch needs to be in the ON position, then you can use the FN-F6 to toggle the bluetooth specifically on and off. Depending on the model there will be another toggle, possible FN-F2 to toggle the wireless Lan on and off once the switch is turned on.

I cant figure out how to turn bluetooth on


If you have already installed bluetooth from the CD-ROM, open the control panel wizard. Look for the Bluetooth portion that will take you to open and switch on your bluetooth device on your PC. Some other PC has switch to open a bluetooth in any sides of your PC.
