Fellas,
          I'm having Inspiron 600m laptop, and I'm not able to enable the radio on right click of the blue tooth icon 'Enable Radio'..It pops up with a message saying..'The Blue Tooth Radio is turned off. Please click Fn+F2 to turn on' .But I'm keep pressing both keys at the same time and still the blue tooth radio not even blinking to turn on..Cry

Please guide me and thanks for your help in advance..

Some laptops have the Bluetooth software, but the Bluetooth hardware is optional. Are you sure yours have the required hardware?

Is it turned on in the BIOS?

Thanks for the prompt response...Here's my answers..

I've done the transfer of files from my laptop to my mobile earlier a week back and disabled the blue tooth radio..So the blue tooth s/w & h/w will be there in my system...

Regd. whether it's turned in BIOS?..not having good idea on how to check that..Pls advise/guide me..


I'd noticed one more error message on click of Fn+F2, I'm getting a windows error message like 'One of the USB devices attached to this computer has malfunctioned, and windows does not recognize it'..Even after uninstalling that thru' the help of device manager it's popping its head again whenever I pressed Fn+F2..Not sure whether this relates to my blue tooth problem..
