Hi, I am new here. I have a problem.

I bought a new mobile, and have tried to connect it to my pc (winxpsp2, pretty new) and I can't get the bluetooth working. I installed all the pc suite software, and tried to locate my phone using the bluetooth thing, and it said "not all software and hardware are here" or something along those lines.

I tried looking on the internet for a guide, and searched my pc for help - it told me to go to control panel and select the bluetooth bit in there. I don't have that. I can't find anything, apart from help guides, which point me to a non existent place to configure my bluetooth settings.

Can anyone help me, and give me any information as to what I might need to do to get the bluetooth up and running on my pc? Thanks.

(p.s. I am a complete newb, so please use simple terms..I might understand better)

Go into your "Control Panel" - accessible through the Start menu. If you have an Icon that says Bluetooth Local Com - then you have Bluetooth already on your machine. If not you will need to purchase a Bluetooth Dongle to plug into a spare USB port.
