Step 1: First connect the bluetooth device to USB port on your computer and check that it is detecting on your computer or not.
Step 2: Now insert the bluetooth software driver CD to your system that will auto start after few seconds then follow instruction to finish bluetooth software installation.
Step 3: Now go to 'start -> Devices and Printers' and click 'Add a device' from top of the window.
Step 4: Now your Windows 7 system will search the bluetooth device which connected to your system.
Step 5: Click the bluetooth device you want to install from the list and then click the 'Next' button and wait for windows to configure the bluetooth device. If prompted to enter a passcode, enter the default code listed in the bluetooth device manual. In many cases, the default passcode will be '0000'.
Now the bluetooth device has successfully installed and ready to use.
Note: If you bluetooth device was not listed in the search results from Step 4, make the device discoverable. Access your Bluetooth-enabled device's settings page, and turn on the device's 'Listen' or 'Discoverable' function to allow you computer to find it.

SOURCE: how do I restore factory settings on my dell

  1. Restoring a Dell System Running Windows XP.

    Turn off and reboot your computer. When you see the Windows flash screen, depress "CTRL" and "F11". Be sure to press them simultaneously and release them simultaneously.

    Select "Restore" in the "Dell PC to restore by Symantec" window and press "Enter".

    Highlight and select "Confirm" when the message shows that you wiill lose all data if you continue. This will begin the restore process. It usually takes about 10 minutes or so. When it's done, you should receive a message that states the system recovery process was successful.

    Select "Finish" to complete the process and restart your system.
  2. Step 6 Restore a Dell System Running Windows Vista

    Shutdown and restart your computer. Keep pressing "F8" until you see the "Advanced Boot Options" menu. You must depress the keys before the Windows Logo screen appears. If you wait until after the screen appears and then press "F8", it's too late and you'll have to reboot the system and try again.

    Navigate to the "Repair your computer" option

    Select the appropriate language and click "Next".

    Sign onto the system as an administrator. Without administrative privileges, you will be unable to perform the system restore.

    Select "Dell Factory Image Restore" and click "Next".

    Place a check in the check box next to the text that says "Yes, reformat hard drive and restore System Software to factory condition" and click "Next".

    Click "Finish" to complete the process. This will reboot your computer.
