Question about Acer Aspire 1690 Notebook
Just wondering if there is bluetooth built-in to this laptop because there is a button for it but when i press it it says no divice. can anyone help?
I have a Acer 1691. It said it had integrated Bluetooth. It should of said It was Bluetooth ready. I also get the no device message. Very misleading !!! Not only do I need a Bluetooth module but I need a cable to plug it into the CN6 plug on the top side of the motherboard. I got lucky and found a pdf file that shows how to take it apart. I looks like I will have to take the bottom section pretty well all the way apart. I will find out for sure when the parts get here. I found the module with the cable on E-bay for around $25. It may take weeks to get here from China. I hope this helps.

Ther's another valid solution
You've to look for this
Acer Laptop Internal Bluetooth 2.0 Module 8pin1.05cm L
on Ebay (www.ebay.com) and connect it into the cn6 connector of the motherboard.
You've to disassemble the keyboard for finding CN6 connector (near keyboard , microphon and touchpad connectors)

I had the same question, as the 1690 has a button on the front which is identical to the wireless LAN button but has the bluetooth symbol next to it.
When the button is pressed a message appears on screen stating "No Device"
It appears that a bluetooth dongle may be required, as there is no bluetooth category in device manager!!

Well the Acer site says that it has built-in bluetooth!(Aspire 1690) If you go to device manager (Right click on my computer, click on manage. Under System Tools in the left pane click on device manager) you should see one of the device categories there as Bluetooth, if you don't see it and see a yellow icon that means you might need to install the bluetooth drivers! If you don't either you might need another component(bluetooth hardware) for the bluetooth to work! hope this was helpful regards, babb
