Default Bluetooth gone missing? - 01-13-2010, 12:16 PM

My Dell mini (8gb sdd) had bluetooth when Ubuntu was loaded with the original specfication. After I replaced Ubuntu with XP pro, and downloaded all the Dell drivers (including the Bluetooth driver) I don't seem able to connect to any bluetooth devices.

Anyone got any ideas? Is there something else I need to download?

Many thanks!!

Did you install the Wireless Switch utility and enable Bluetooth with it?

Very grateful!

Download and install this. Then use Fn-2 to bring up the wireless switch. You can enable or disable the WiFi and/or Bluetooth radios here. I assume that the problem is that Windows does not see the Bluetooth radio at all. If it is seen, then this won't help.
