Hi everybody, can somebody with bluetooth run Belarc Advisor--its freeware that shows all your hardware and see if it will detect the bluetooth module and post exactly what it says.

Hey after reading all the replies, I am really confused about bluetooth, my laptop is a Acer Aspire 9301AWSMi and it has a bluetooth button and an indicator for if it's on and it's mentioned in the user guide so i'm sure that it should have bluetooth. When I click the button nothing happens and as far as I know the settings are on, the button is near my wireless button and when that's on it glows but I click the bluetooth and the indicator does not glow. Can someone please tell me how to find the settings to turn it on, because I asked acer and they just sent back about the button that you can click which is not very helpful. Please help me :-)

i had the same problem with the ir port a couple of years ago when i got my acer 1350. I managed to switch it on by accessing the bios at boot up. Th eir port was switched off so windows wouldn't recognise it. I don't know but it might be the same with the blue tooth

Hey, how do you access the bios? Because i'v tried the usual F2 and it does not show me what I want it to show me, is there another shortcut key?

fyi my ACER 5100 dosen't have a BIOS setting for the bluetooth device. Here are the usual BIOS keys for different brands:

Control + Escape
Alt + Escape
Control + Alt + Escape
Control + Alt + Enter

If none of these keys work, a baseball bat will always work.Wink
