Okey, bought an acer aspire laptop. But when i press the bluetooth button, it just says "No bluetooth device". Why is this. I've tried installing the drivers from acers webpage, but still getting the error.

Please help me.. running vista home premium 64 bits.

Not all Acer laptops come with built-in Bluetooth. Some are "Bluetooth Ready", which means nothing really - it either has it or not.

so.. when it says no bluetooth device it just expects me to buy a bluetooth device, install it and then use it? (btw where do i get a bluetooth hardware for a aspire 9300?)

Stupid people..... stupid me :P

Correct, you have to buy an adapter. I am not sure you can buy one from Acer though. Or if you can, how much more expensive than stock ones from a store it would be.
