Same Here :( - 01-22-2010, 10:10 PM
My 10v has the same problem and same symptoms as mentioned.
Mine will never recognize the bluetooth module on the first start. If I restart it recognizes every time and works great.
First I had Vista Business loaded with this problem. So I reformated to XP. The module wasn't installed when I bought the Mini so I thought installing the OS with with the module in from the start would fix the problem and it didn't.
I bought this module first:
DELL J613H 2.1 Bluetooth module + cable for mini 10 10v - eBay (item 230382663157 end time Jan-26-10 22:20:49 PST)
Then after the reformat didn't work I figured it could be the module itself so I tried this one with a new cable:
DELL mini 10 10v 1010 1011 2.1 Bluetooth Module + Cable - eBay (item 170421838798 end time Feb-16-10 11:30:14 PST)
Like I said If I restart it works every time. I tried changing the function key setting in Bios thinking It might allow it to turn on the module with the Fn 2 key or the button utility but it doesn't see it either way in the initial boot.
I'm using the Dell XP driver. Hellowifi suggested trying the Buesoil Driver but I don't see how it would make a difference since it seems to be something within the Bios not letting it recognize on the first boot.
Puzzling me more is why work on the restart? It goes through the same process as a first start. It loads bois, loads Windows the same way right?
