I have an inspiron 1525 laptop. Its bluetooth is not working.Where do i get the driver and how to install it

You need to use your CD with drivers from Dell and unzip the bluetooth driver to C:\dell\drivers\R140135. close the Fn + F2 thing and go to that location. You will see 2 folders Win32 & Win 64 of vista version you have installed . Launch "Inst.exe" and wait until another Fn+F2 prompt will apear. Close this prompt and the install will finish. Restart your computer and after Vista boots up you will see in the tray the bluetooh icon. Right Click to turn the adapter on and the drivers will be reinstalled.

I need to switch on my bluetooth of Dell Inspiron 1525, whenever I download its driver, it asks me to press Fn + F2 keys, but they are not functioning in my case. I dont know how to use bluetooth now :/...

right click on my computer, select manage, look for the exclamation mark (there is probably one next to the bluetooth device) click on the device and then click update driver, when it asks if you want to install automatically or to select a specific location, select specific location and locate the driver select it and click next (or ok I forget what the options it gives are) also check to make sure that the device is enabled (should tell you on the properties for the device) I am inclined to think that the fn/f2 is probably just to turn the device on and off .
