I am new to the forums, and I've only had my Mini 9 for a few days, so I am definitely a newbie here. However, I am an advanced user who works in IT and I can't seem to get my bluetooth working on my Mini 9 either. Hopefully my situation is the same as the OP, so that the additional details I have provided will help them as well.
I have confirmed my bios has it active, and I have attempted to install both of the BT
drivers referenced here in the forums. Both tell me to "enable my bluetooth using Fn+2", but when I attempt it, nothing happens. I found the battery/wireless switch app that is linked to elsewhere in the forum so I decided to install that as well, just to be sure. It did not change anything. I still see no noticeable change when I hit Fn+2 and I can not install my driver because the software doesn't see the BT
adapter. I doubled checked to make sure that Windows 7 hadn't automatically loaded a bogus driver that was interfering, and I have no BT
drivers installed in device manager. My last thought is that my bios is still the original level ("00") I believe, so I was going to attempt a bios upgrade. I am reading up on which level to upgrade to now. I understand that moving to the latest (6) is not advisable for a number of reasons, so I am thinking that I should upgrade to bios level 4 and retest this. What does everyone think? Is that the right path, and is bios level 4 the right one to update to so that I continue to have the option of multi-booting other OSes, and using non-OEM extended batteries.
Thanks for your help, Frank.
