Acer Laptops – Unable to Turn on Bluetooth
|1 April 2008||Posted by whiztech under Uncategorized|
This article is not about on how to resolve the problem of unable to turn on bluetooth on Acer laptops. Basically, most laptops from Acer use same casing design for different models. This casing includes the Bluetooth switch to turn on the Bluetooth.
Having this switch does not mean that your laptop has bluetooth hardware. The Bluetooth driver and software can also be installed on laptops without Bluetooth hardware, so having the Bluetooth software installed does not mean the laptop has the hardware for Bluetooth.
You can check this by searching Google for your laptop model, and see its spesification whether it has Bluetooth hardware or not. You can also check it in ‘Device Manager’ (Right click My Computer > Manage > Device Manager). Check if you have any Bluetooth hardware. Make sure you turn on the Bluetooth switch and install the Bluetooth driver first.
