hi, i'm using the internal bluetooth with my acer travelmate 4650 (win xp sp2) and since installing another usb bluetooth dongle (using bluesoleil), my internal bluetooth no longer works. I tryed using the WIDDCOMM driverws instead of the win xp ones, but my laptop lists the internal bluetooth as "Broadcom USB Bluetooth Device" in device manager, when it is obviously not a usb device. How do i get windows to recognize it as an internal device and use WIDDCOMM with it?

thanks for the link simplelife but i tried doing this, but either
A
i can have the ms drivers and the ms bluetooth program working almost fine
or
B
i can have the widcomm drivers, where it lists the btooth as a usb device and widcomm refuses to recognise it
or
C
i can have the ms drivers and widcomm refuses to recognise it

Why won't widcomm recognise the internal bluetooth anyone??? im desperate now

It wll be quite a challenge to do this. You have three drivers (MS, Widcomm, BlueSoleil) and two devices (internal, USB).

I am pretty sure some of the drivers use same file names.
