It is not enabled in Bios. Press either F2 or del key (it will say which on boot screen) and go to Bluetooth and select enable. Save settings and restart and then your OS will discover the Bluetooth.

Does this model come with bluetooth?


I would guess no, but I donn't know for sure. All I can do is look up your specs. If you open the Control Panel and look for the Bluetooth Icon, OR open the Device Manager,Network Adapters.Is a Bluetooth Adapter listed? If not buy a USB Bluetooth Adapter. Take a look at this: http://www.google.com/webhp?source=search_app#q=usb+bluetooth+adapter&hl=en&tbo=u&source=univ&tbm=shop&sa=X&ei=Bb_2UM_RLo3g8wTf2oGwBQ&ved=0CEoQsxg&bav=on.2,or.r_gc.r_pw.r_qf.&bvm=bv.41018144,d.b2I&fp=260534c26339dbc2&biw=958&bih=621

Internal Bluetooth Adapter won't work...


hi...
first what we need to check if the bluetooth software is installed or not,right click on my computer and go to properites,once you click on properties,click on the tab that says advacned and underneath this box you will see an option which says device manager,click on device manager and check if the bluetooth adapter is listed under the category that says bluetooth or network adapter,if you see that there is no yellow question mark under bluetooth option,if there is a yellow question mark then you probably need to reinstall the drivers...if the software is listed and yet it is not getting detected probably we need to reset the bluetooth adapter and also make sure if the bluetooth light on the laptop is on or not,the light is situated on the front of your laptop...
incase the device manager looks perfect then go ahead and reset the bluetooth card

Bluetooth


If you have a bluetooth button at the front it doesnt mean its inbuilt, most Acer laptops don't have it although the button is there.
assuming you have set up the bluetooth correctly
Your model does list it has inbuilt but, if it is the light should flicker, you should also check the latest driver
