Preferred Solution: Does this laptop have Bluetooth?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Does this laptop have Bluetooth?

Hi: Below is the link to the product specs page for your notebook. It does not come with built in bluetooth, or that feature would have been listed along with the 1x1 802.11b/g/n WLAN wireless connectivity specification. You can purchase an external usb bluetooth adapter, or if you are willing and able to take the whole notebook apart to get to the wireless card, you can switch it out for the Broadcom BCM43142 802.11 bgn 1x1 Wi-Fi + BT4.0 HMC combo adapter, or the Realtek RT8723BE 802.11bgn 1x1 Wi-Fi + BT4.0 Combo Adapter.

Hey guys,

So i spent the entire day trying to figure out why my Bluetooth installed fine but after one restart it disappeared and it wouldn't come back. I finally figured it out that the FN+F2 (wireless/bluetooth switches) is what enables/disabled it HAHAHAHAHA.

default (after startup): WiFi on / BT off
first time: WiFi on / BT ON yay~!
second time: WiFi off / BT on
third time: WiFi off / BT off

and repeat.

I hope this helps people with their bluetooth issues =)

Windows 8 was able to install all my Function Keys so I'm going to assume this will be the case for others. Good luck

Hi all,

Question is as per the subject line but the reason I ask is that although each laptop is visible to the other in Devices and Printers when I try to send a file from the Vista laptop to the Win 7 laptop I get a message failure message. On the Win 7 machine when I click the the bluetooth icon in the systray the option to 'Allow a Device to connect' is greyed-out and there is no alert that a device is trying to connect. A far as I can tell the bluetooth settings on both laptops are OK, adding a device was OK with the passwork handshake completed without problem.

Is this a driver issue, settings issue, or summat else?

Couple of questions

Are you using "homegroup" for networking?

Is there no other way you can transfer like wifi (its faster)?

I have an hp G60-445DX I want to Bluetooth pitchers & music with an LG Rumor2 it has Bluetooth but the laptop don't what I have to do to make this work



That model doesn't have a Bluetooth adapter, so you'd first have to buy and install one. Some phones require software to be installed in order to transfer data, and some simply don't support it. Others only allow transfers to and from flash memory cards. The first step should be to review your phone's manual, and contact your cell provider with any questions as features can vary by phone and provider.

I bought a new HP notebook three months ago, March, 2016.  After buying a state of the art Bose bluetooth speaker, I realized my notebook is not bluetooth capable.  Really?  Seriously? This limitation was not shared or apparent in any product information.  Nor was it shared with me by the Best Buy store associate.  I don't think he knew. Bluetooth is not new technology and today, it is essential.  What a disappointment.  HP notebook buyers beware!

Hello! It seems as if this laptop does not have any bluetooth capabilities, which is a bummer! Could someone confirm that? If not then I'm looking for a way to change that, what are some solutions? I really dont want to have to have a dongle taking up a USB Port, is there a way I could install a driver? Thanks in advance, Aaron

A:Is there a way I can get Bluetooth on my laptop?

If only you could add hardware by adding software. I confirmed your laptop did not have bluetooth from the factory. Your choices are 2. Add the usb dongle: easy cheap works like a charm. Otherwise open the back of the laptop, remove the wireless card and install a dual function wifi and BT card in its place and it has to be one of those cards HP offered from the factory on the same model series or the laptop will refuse to boot up. It is actually not terribly hard to do and not terribly expensive although more than the dongle thing. Once you have Bluetooth hardware in the laptop THEN we install a driver.  Post back if you want specific instructions and we need to know what country you live in.

Open Device Manager from the Control Panel and see if any Bluetooth adapter is listed.  It will be there if the machine has built-in Bluetooth.

Hey guysss, i've had my Asus F6A laptop for about a month now and have only just realised i should test out the bluetooth TODAY. Unfortunately, theres seem to be no bluetooth on the laptop even though is apparently "integrated bluetooth". I opened the manual book and acording to the book when i press Fn F2 it shud turn it on. However, when i do this, this is ONLY for wireless lan, there is actually no bluetooth function together. Anybody got any ideas how to "activate" bluetooth or sumthing???

Check the BIOS to make sure it's enabled there. Verify the adapter shows up in Device Manager as well.

A:Bluetooth gone from Windows 7 32-bit HP laptop

Since the bluetooth device is not shown in Device Manager, this means either 1 or 2:

1. Bluetooth is disabled/turned off either by the bluetooth slider switch somewhere on one of the laptop's 4 sides, or there will be a key (usually top row) which has to pressed in combination with the 'Fn' key.


2. The bluetooth adapter itself is faulty.

I recommend you to once make sure that your laptop has bluetooth in it, and if it has bluetooth installed in it ensure that bluetooth is switched on. Normally laptops have a wireless swtich for wireless and bluetooth that needs to be turned on.

help me pls.
my laptop keyboard broke down a while ago, as of now, i don't have extra money for me to be able to replace it. now im using USB keyboard only, since my current keyboard doesn't have a fn key in it, i can't open the shortcut for the bluetooth using the keyboard.

1. is there any other way to open/enable it without using the keyboard?
2. i also can't see the BLUETOOTH device in the Device Manager, is that normal?

**i can use my bluetooth before my laptop broke down. and i saw in another forum that if you cant enable the bluetooth physically, the windows will not detect it but the forum is abt windows tablet so im not sure if it also applies with laptops.

Hi Friends,
I've a typical situation here:
1. A PC with Vista Ultimate installed and a Bluetooth dongle (Widcomm drivers) connected to a broadband internet via LAN card.
2. A laptop with Windows XP and bluetooth inbuilt.

Now I wish to share the internet connection of the desktop to the laptop over bluetooth. Is it possible?

One more issue I face in Vista is that when I try to enable the ICS for the internet connection, I get this error "An error occurred while Internet connection sharing was being enabled.
(null)" - Screen shot attached.

Can someone please help with this problem?

Thanks in advance!

A:Internet Sharing between PC & Laptop over Bluetooth

OK, here's another update:
I stumbled upon the Event viewer of the system and the log entry corresponding to the ICS error says:
"The ICS_IPV6 was unable to allocate  bytes of memory. This may indicate that the system is low on virtual memory, or that the memory manager has encountered an internal error."

Yes that special character is there before the word 'bytes'!

Now it seems the problem is with the IPv6. My ISP surely doesn't provide anything on IPv6. So can I somehow remove it completely? I've already unchecked it from my network properties, but no use!

How did you disable BT; via the taskbar icon (do you have one?), Action Center (see screen shot) ? If you do not have a driver in the Device Manager, you won't have a Bluetooth listed in the Action Center.

You'll need to find out which driver came with the laptop. There are 3 Bluetoooth drivers for your model on this ASUS support page (more than likely, you have the later Qualcomm)-

Switchable graphics enable users to switch between a power-saving graphics mode (normally used under battery power) and a high-performance graphics mode.

A:Cant connect bluetooth headset to Windows 7 laptop..

But Im using a Dell D630 Laptop running Windows 7 Enterprise with the Dell 355 Bt adapter.

I've also had trouble getting it to connect. I used to have to force it to connect in XP. So I tried everything I can think of to force it in Win7 through the bluetooth settings dialog, and using the headset itself. Randomly it would work.

Eventually I found that if the headset is turned off, the computer rebooted, and the headset turned on, they just connect automatically without me doing anything. Which was great till something (like my cellphone) connected to the headset and then I couldn't get the headset to reconnect otthe laptop with out rebooting. Yuck!

Anyway this rebooting thing gave me an idea... What I do now, is right click on the bluetooth icon in the tray and turn off the bluetooth device in the computer. Then I power off the headset. Then I re-enable the bluetooth in the same menu. Lastly I power on the headset, and it pretty much works all the time - Though I had one time when it connected but I had no sound.

I love this headset with Win7 much better than with XP, the play pause, track forward/back even control WinAMP! It's cool!

Connecting used to be such a pain, I used to just load my music on my phone and listen from there. but now I can get my music, games, web audio etc. all ,mixed through the same headset. And it still switches to my phone when calls come in and returns to the computer when they're done. It's great!

I feel like I've finally got it working the way it's supposed to. Until today the only thing I found annoying was trying to switch Win7 back and forth between the BT headset and the built-in sound card. (I found this question while googling for that.)

I'd still like to find a sidebar gadget to switch that back and forth, but I found that right clicking the volume icon in the stem tray will allow you pop up the audio output device selection dialog directly (without drilling through start->control panel->etc.) It's not the best but it's usable.

I am looking for some assistance in getting my bluetooth feature to work on my current laptop. I made a frugal attempt to contact HP directly for support and was told (after a very frustrating and difficult conversation to understand with my support personnel) that because my product was out of warranty, they would not even DISCUSS my issue at hand. Considering this, I opted to hit the forums for advice.

The problem at hand is when trying to set the "Discovery" option which allows other devices to see my computer, I get the following error message:

"An error occured while windows was trying to save your settings. The bluetooth device might be unplugged."

My bluetooth device is onboard. I am suspecting a drive possibly, but cannot find any drivers online for this device. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Hello and welcome NoMoreLenovos mate I can sympathise with you because I use Blu tooth mice wherever I can.

So have you tried going to Notification Area Icons - bottom right taskbar and I keep the Blu tooth on the taskbar and if you click on it it will open a window that asks to Show Blu tooth devices click on that and it will open and show you what is available.

My bluetooth stopped working in my ASUS Q302LA. Bluetooth doesn't even show in the Settings>Devices in Win 10. In Device Manager, under Microsoft LE Enumerator, Properties, it states "Device cannot start, Code 10." I clean installed win10 and am getting the same result, which leads me to think it is a BIOS problem. Any ideas.

Update on my little nightmare:
I updated the Windows security downloads, knowing that anything I do like this can be the begining
of the end of another laptop

I checked the Windows updates and the "location" column shows them installed on other drives.
Drives with names like:

I should say - I have no drives or anything else hooked to this sad little laptop.

A:Bluetooth on laptop (HP Envy 15) randomly disappeared

Not much help, but I had to comment. How the heck did they get to install windows 8?

I was using an envy 15 at the time of the release of Windows 8. It just refused to accept an install, stopping halfway with an error . I tried every trick known and, in the end, HP advised that there was no solution and the laptop was incompatible!! I sold the machine finally.

Just curious.

Hello, first post, hopefully not the last post.

Anyway, the laptop I am using is an Acer Aspire 5251. The website said bluetooth is built in. So on to trying to connect: I go to "Add a Device" and search for Bluetooth devices while I turn on the searching mechanism on my NXT Lego brick. However, my laptop is unable to find it. I know the brick's bluetooth is working fine because it was able to connect to my iPod and even an outdated flip phone. To you NXT owners: what can I do? I will give additional information if inquired.

EDIT: I feel like this is the wrong sub-forum, so please inform me if it is.

A:Trying to connect a Lego NXT Brick to My Laptop via Bluetooth

Nah, the forum is fine, if needed the admins will move it.
Welcome to Seven Forums.
I'm not Bluetooth literate but I know in Device Manager it should show up in its own category or Human Interface Devices maybe. Does the brick have any install media with it? I don't know what that is either.

Slim Divers might help you find a driver for the Bluetooth device. Be aware that it sometimes is buggy and will show drivers for non-existent hardware.

I have a Toshiba M700 laptop, running Windows Vista ultimate.
It has an internal bluetooth adapter. The bluetooth manager software that installs along with the drivers from Toshiba's website sucks. It causes a lot of little annoying problems, some of which you can't get around at all.

For this reason, I wish to use a different bluetooth manager program.
I'm not sure if Vista really has a default program, but my other 2 computers that have bluetooth seem to use the same, less annoying, bluetooth manager program.

Sorry if I'm being ignorant, but I'm not well acquainted with bluetooth yet.

"Sorry if I'm being ignorant, but I'm not well acquainted with bluetooth yet"...

This may be the root cause of your Bluetooth problem...

"It causes a lot of little annoying problems, some of which you can't get around at all"...

Can you explain in a little more detail just what are the problems

So i managed to get my bluetooth speakers and laptop paired, but the sound is still coming through the laptop speakers, i went into the audio area and the only option to playback is the laptop speakers.

The bluetooth speakers show up in devices, and it seems to know that they are speakers, but how do i make it show up in the audio area so i can choose to use them instead of laptop speakers?
