Question about HP Pavilion dv4000 Notebook

WinXP SP2 not detecting bluetooth device

I have an Acer Travelmate 5620 notebook. It originally came with Windows Vista loaded. The LED buttons for W/LAN and Bluetooth worked fine and the bluetooth device appeared in my Device Manager. I even connected my cellphone successfully via bluetooth.

After formatting and installing Windows XP with SP2, neither LED button works, my bluetooth device is not detected (it does not appear under device manager and I have no 'unknown device' listed here either). I've installed the latest Widcomm bluetooth software that I got from the Acer support site specifically for this notebook and WinXP, but when I click the blue/red icon in the taskbar, all I get is 'no bluetooth devices'. I know I have the hardware as it used to work before I formatted!!! I've spent hours, trying all kinds of tweaks and software. There is nothing in my Bios that allows me to enable/disable devices.

I've come across other threads of people with the same kind of problem (WinXP SP2 not detecting integrated bluetooth), but no solution yet. I think that if I can get those 2 buttons working, then I'd be able to at least turn the bluetooth device 'on' so that windows would detect it and I could point it to the drivers...

Also, the ePowerManagement does not work with dot net framework 2.0+ installed (all features are disabled). That worked fine with Dot Net Framework 1.1, but I need 2.0 installed (else SQL Server 2005 doesn't install....). ePower Management used to allow me to enable my bluetooth, then it worked 100%.

Please, anyone who can help, I'd be most grateful.

I have a Acer TravelMate 244xv and it has a bluetooth button on the case but it does not work and I do not have a bluetooth icon in my control panel. Is there a way I can remotely update my laptop to...


It may be that the 244XV does not have a Bluetooth module installed as standard. Some of the TravelMate 240 series may have it installed, so they used the same casing for the whole range.

If your button does not work and there is no icon, check your device manager for missing drivers. If nothing is missing, I would surmise that there is no Bluetooth device inside your machine.

You can obtain the drivers for this machine from Acer (see URL: ftp://ftp.acer-euro.com/notebook/TravelMate_24x_25x/, and click driver, followed by your OS - Windows XP or Windows 2k). The Bluetooth driver is there, but it will only make any difference if you have the relevant device installed.

Good luck.

Wen i was installing bluetooth driver on my extensa 5620 it was saying that no bluetooth device found please make sure that it ws enabled....but how to enable it..?


hi, look for the button than turns your wireless lan on, most systems that's the same button that turns the bluetooth on. You can run a search on the start menu search bar. Just type bluetooth into the bar and everything related to the bluetooth will come up.
hope this helps

Where or how do I find the wireless switch?


On the front of the laptop there is a Bluetooth button, and a wireless button.

On the front edge of the laptop, starting from the Left;

Speaker, Bluetooth button, Wireless button, Power indicator light, Battery indicator light, Microphone-In jack, Line-In jack, Headphones jack, Speaker.

The Bluetooth button has a light in the middle of it. If the light is on, Bluetooth is enabled.
If it is on, turn it off. (Push the button in, let go. The light should be off)

The Wireless button, also has a light in the middle of it. If the light is on, wireless is enabled. Be sure it is on.

During cleaning the virus out, the Bluetooth, and wireless LAN driver may have been corrupted.

Here is Acer Support, and the Drivers Download page,

http://support.acer.com/drivers_download.aspx

On this page you are going to find the wireless LAN drivers, for your Acer Travelmate 4200 PC Notebook.

1.In the Select Product Family box, Left-click on Notebook.
Wait a second, the next box will come up.

2.In the Select Product Line box, Left-click on
Travelmate.

3.In the Select Product Model box, scroll down, and left-click on Travelmate 4200.

Use the blue bar, on the right side of the Driver file name box, and scroll down.

You will see there are 3 wireless LAN drivers listed.

1.Wireless LAN - Atheros
2.Wireless LAN - Broadcom
3.Wireless LAN - Intel

Left-click on the orange box, to the left of the appropriate wireless LAN driver you need.
(Orange rectangle with down arrow pointing to a line)

A small window will come up. There is a circle to the left of - Open with,
and a circle to the left of - Save File.

Left-click on the circle to the left of - Save File.
Now go down to the right, and click on OK.

This file will either go to your Documents folder, or it will go to your desktop screen.

In either place, when you see the file name, Double-click right on it.
The Installation Wizard will come up.
Click on Next, Next, and Finish.
(Bottom of each window)

Restart your computer.

To know which wireless LAN driver you need, (Atheros, Broadcom, or Intel), go to Device Manager.

1.Left-click on Start, (Vista logo button)
2.Left-click on Control Panel
3.Left-click on System and Maintenance
4.Left-click on Device Manager

(If you are prompted for an administrator password, or confirmation, type your password)

When Device Manager loads, look at the file tree before you.
Go down to - Network adapters, and left-click on the + sign to the left.

Across from wireless LAN you will see the name.

Wireless Adapter not working under Vista


Is the radio turned off? There should be a button or Fn button combination that allows you to turn your radio on and off. Try that.
