Re: Conecting Blue tooth phone to acer laptop
Has your model actually got bluetooth built in as most Acer laptops have the switch, but do not have it fitted, if you do check in control panel> device manager and see if it reports any problems by way of an exclamation mark.
You will probably have to purchase a bluetooth usb dongle for about £9.00 or $18 US and use that

is the blue tooth mode running you can check this by going to your start menu and look for a folder named acer or acer tools or bluetooth and see if its running also ctrl alt del at teh same time bring up task manager and look for something called bluesolil (sp) .exe running.if its not on or there is no option you need to re install your blu tooth drivers from acers website. some of there travel mates DO NOT contain blu tooth tho
to connect the mobile phone with the laptop you need a data cable ..and a driver to be installed so that the communication between the devices to be possible .. Usually the driver ( or software that contain it ) cames with the phone when you buy it ...so if you have it ..just insert the disk in the laptop ...and run the program ..and at one point will ask you to connect the mobile phone .. if you do not have the disk ..you need to download from the support site of the phone's manufacturer ...and install it after ..For well known brands...like Motorola...Nokia..Samsung ..there are available on the internet (google search ) programs called after case..connectivity suite ...or manager ..and they work for almost all phones in the brand that are capable to connect .. Another way to connect most phones these days with almost any laptop is via Bluetooth ..just open the bluetooth in the phone (make it available to be found) ..and after that open the bluetooth in the laptop and search for available devices..You will find the phone by its name or by the given name if you changed it ..After that just pair them and send files from one to the other .. Cause you did not specified the brand and model of the phone ...I can not provide any download link ...but I repeat ...If you search by the brand name ..and add the word support near it ..it usually connect you to the support site of the device manufacturer...and there you will find what you need ..driver or connectivity software ..
update your driver installer all the mother board of the laptop,
if the windows is windows vista download the installer from www.acer.com to get
new drivers for blue tooth. If windows xp is using as well download from acer.com.good luck
you have to switch on the blue tooth of your mobile phone, switch on your laptop blue tooth also,
now open the blue tooth software on laptop there is a search option , it will detect your mobile phone and will ask for a pass key enter 1234 or any key you like but it be the same on both (laptop and mobile)
after that you send files
Windows Mobility Center includes Acer-specific settings like Bluetooth Add
Device (if applicable), sharing folders overview/sharing service on or off, and a
shortcut to the Acer user guide, drivers and utilities.
To launch Windows Mobility Center: • Start Windows Mobility Center from the Control panel
• Start Windows Mobility Center from the Accessories program group in the
You should be able to turn on blutooth from there.
Please let me know if this helps.
