Hello there,
I just recieved a HP 4200 Tablet PC for one of my courses at my university. It comes with a built in Bluetooth radio to recieve and send bluetooth signals. I also have a LG "The V" phone with bluetooth capabilities. I have turned on my bluetooth on my phone and PC and also made my phone visible to all so that my computer should be able to pick it up wirelessly. But it doesn't! Everyone I have talked to through HP and Microsoft (I use XP) have told me to use the Bluetooth Device file in the control panel, but I don't have a Bluetooth Device file I just have a Bluetooth Configuration file. I just need to know how to get my computer and phone on the same page so that I can connect wirelessly and transfer information. Please someone help me after 13 hours of trying I have gotten no where but a headache and a few system crashes.
Thank you

Welcome to Geekzone... Do you have a Bluetooth icon in the System Tray? When you open Start | Control Panel | System | Hardware | Device Manager can you see a Bluetooth icon in the list?

Is this the Compaq TC4200 Tablet PC you have? I can't see any Bluetooth hardware listed in the specifications.

Some laptops come as "Bluetooth Ready". It does not mean it has Bluetooth hardware, only that the software comes preinstalled.

Yea I thought that could have been the problem at first, I saw the icon and got excited. But then I checked with my professor and they had the hardware installed so we could transfer files for class via cell phone. I think I might have the problem figured out I just reinstalled the driver. Thanks
