    I have the same problem. I'm trying to connect with a Blackberry but noreven the light of the activate switch lits. Looking at the manual it's not clear if there is Bluetooth... it only says Bluetooth communications (for selected models).



    Thanks

    I just installed Windows XP SP2 and installed the "Bluetooth Driver and Application 5.0.1.1500" that I downloaded from the Acer website. During the installation it promts to turn on the bluetooth device and the button does not do anything. My conclusion is that this model does not come with Bluetooth bluit in.

    PS. It's rather silly to have a Bluetooth Button and no Bluetooth device!

    how to activate the bluetooth option in acer travelmate 2410 model laptop, is there a separate switch to control it?

  • blu3yy May 11, 2010

    Make sure you do have bluetooth build in...normally in Acer laptops its only a "placeholder" not an actual bluetooth device.



    When you install the driver does it detect the bluetooth device?

It doesn't detect the bluetooth device. But what I can't understand is why does the 4020 have the front button if there's no device.

Thanks again...

I have a Acer TravelMate 244xv and it has a bluetooth button on the case but it does not work and I do not have a bluetooth icon in my control panel. Is there a way I can remotely update my laptop to...


It may be that the 244XV does not have a Bluetooth module installed as standard. Some of the TravelMate 240 series may have it installed, so they used the same casing for the whole range.

If your button does not work and there is no icon, check your device manager for missing drivers. If nothing is missing, I would surmise that there is no Bluetooth device inside your machine.

You can obtain the drivers for this machine from Acer (see URL: ftp://ftp.acer-euro.com/notebook/TravelMate_24x_25x/, and click driver, followed by your OS - Windows XP or Windows 2k). The Bluetooth driver is there, but it will only make any difference if you have the relevant device installed.

Good luck.

When bluetooth switch in acer TM4335 is made on no b/t device is found written on screen,while in device manager it shows device working,but BT is not enabling.


Hi,

Uninstall it in device manager, and if it asks if you want to delete installed drivers put a tick in the box and carry on with the uninstall.

Now restart your laptop, it will redetect on boot up.

Make sure your bluetooth software is up to date, use Acer support page for this, Don't use any other 3rd party apps.

If that fails then are 2 things left, reinstall windows, if that doesn't sort it then the bluetooth module is faulty and needs replacing, cheap as chips these days.

Thanks

Bluetooth module on Acer Travelmate 4002 WLCi


Hey Enrico, Check out this thread about installing the module into the exact same laptop: http://www.notebookforums.com/thread185110.html
This particular post (found down the page on page 2 of the thread) reveals that someone has succesfully installed it without the need for drivers: http://www.notebookforums.com/post2555643-3.html
Follow that thread and check that you have installed the module in the correct location as described in a couple of the messages in the thread.
