It is most likely because vista does not have the right drivers for the adapter. Try going to iogears website and downloading them...if the exist yet. If not you might have to send iogear a message to hurry up!

I am unable to plugin the bluetooth..please help...bluetooth icon is not blinking on my laptop...i use vista vostro 1510 laptop...i am unable to transfer any file as blue thooth is not on...how to connect...

Well, its the problem of the bluetooth driver. Reinstalling the bluetooth driver might help you. Sometimes you need to click the bluetooth icon and open the "Bluetooth Places", then the bluetooth will get on.

Now you can transfer the files.

Rate me if it helped you. Thanks.

Bluetooth not installing on WinXP

Hi,

I looks like Acer designed this Notebook for Windows Vista only.

Have you wiped Vista and installed XP instead? If so is there a particular reason, like an old piece of software not working with Vista?

I would be inclined to put Vista back on it. Vista is much better and safer than XP once you get used to it, Especially on a laptop.

If you really want to keep XP, try looking for an older Acer notebook with the same bluetooth adaptor that came with XP installed and see if the driver works from that, its a long shot though.

Logitec V270 bluetooth mouse freezes

I found no solution but plenty of similar complaints on the V270 on other than just Vista machines. I will suggest finding another model mouse and check it for Vista compatibility before buying.
I am using a Logitech M-RBB_DEL4 mouse made for Dell, it's bluetooth and works flawlessly on my XP machine along with the keyboard it came with. I will try the one I just ordered on my Vista machine when the BT Keyboard and Mouse arrive.
