Recently I have installed windows 8 professional x64 version in my dell laptop. Everything is fine here except the Bluetooth driver. It is showing 'The program has compatibility issue'. So bluetooth driver software is not installing. I am using dell inspiron 1564.
My Bluetooth was working even when i upgraded to Windows 7. After a while it stopped. I tried installing back with the Installation CD but whenever the software asks me to "Activate Bluetooth with the wireless button" on my computer, it never continues. i dont know where the problem could be from again. i've tried all i know.
I have 29 Latitude C640 laptops. they all have the Dell True Mobile 1150 (Internal Wireless) I need to be able to use WPA-PSK w/(TKIP) encryption. So I entered the express service tag and found a recent driver which says it supports WPA. I downloaded it, installed it, and it does allow me to enter WPA-PSK mode and allows me to input the key but it will not connect. I spend almost two hours on the phone with a Dell Wireless Support Agent, who finally tried to convince me that 802.11b does not support WPA. (ACK---_) When I asked why my service tag, input on the support page, takes me to a network driver for the TM 1150, which states the reason for the driver update is (Support of WPA in Windows XP), she placed me on silent hold, then elevated volume music hold, then transferred me to General Hardware support.... How to be successful in utilizing the True Mobile 1150 (aka Orinoco) and WPA.
Dell wireless 365,370,380 Bluetooth module is the most common Bluetooth device that Dell uses. Its normally supports Widdcom Bluetooth driver which is manufactured by Broadcom and Modified by Dell ......But dell has removed Windows 8 support In some old Windows 7 laptops like N5010.....But fortunately the windows 7 drivers are working fine on windows8 and most of them are installed during the windows installation....But the main problem is the Bluetooth driver (Dell Wireless 3XX module)
Broadcom has released their Bluetooth driver for Windows 8 PRO.....the Broadcom Bluetooth 4.0 driver has support for a lot of Bluetooth devices and Dell Wireless 3XX Bluetooth module is in the support list.....But as Broadcom don't provide drivers directly to customers.... they give it to the system manufacturers like Dell, Lenovo, HP, etc. and the modify it for ease of their customers.so here is the Broadcom Bluetooth 4.0 driver from Lenovo site which is running fine on Dell 365 Bluetooth device without any compatibility issue and also you can use Bluetooth Control Panel as you do in Windows 7?
I have a Inspiron 1520 which came with windows Vista and I recently did a Windows 7 clean installation. There were no drivers specified for Windows 7 in Dell Driver Download so I installed Vista drivers, connected to internet via LAN Cable and upgraded most of the drivers.
WiFI networks could be detected when installed for the first time but after a shutdown it never detects again. Sometimes it randomly detects, I tried using the laptop for 2 weeks now and only 2 times the WiFI automatically came up.
There is a switch to pull after turning on WiFI radio, which will display the list of WiFi networks in a window, that Switch is not responding now.
i have installed Ubuntu 12.04 LTS on my Inspiron 1520 (Clean installation). The OS is working fine and most of the Drivers are working properly. The Wireless LAN is installed but the sometimes wireless networks are not detecting until the computer and access point are restarted several times. The situation is similar to the problem which I faced for Windows 7 in the following thread.
I like to know how to solve this error, where to find proper drivers and how to configure the laptop and OS to work properly.
I have a DELL Inspiron, just 10 months old and ever since I have reinstalled the windows and I try to install the bluetooth drivers and wi fi drivers, during set up I am asked to press Fn + F3, it worked like before the reinstallation of the window, but now it is not working, the wifi or bluetooth does not get turned on, what to do now, how to cure it coz I really need the wifi service. Plus my laptop does not have a manual switch or button for wifi and bluetooth.
I have a dell inspiron 1545 after upgrading it from windows xp to windows 7 ultimate the bluetooth is not working now. the bluetooth even does not appear on the control panel on harware and sound. I checked the driver from device germanaand it is installed I even uninstalled the bluetooth driver and downloaded it from dell website but still not working.
My dell model is dell inspiron 15z. . I have just brought it one month ago. The main issue is that when i have pressed Fn+F2 key to turn on wifi ,the led representing the wifi has been glowing but in network centre it has been showing off .when i have pressed the above key instead of turning on wifi now bluetooth has been turned on. Whether it is software or hardware issue.
I am trying to connect my Bose Soundlink via Bluetooth to my Dell Laptop. The USB Bluetooth device is connected successfully and the Bose Speaker shows on the system but with errors. When I try to install drivers for this I am unsuccessful and also using the manufacturers SW I cannot load through the SW
Is there a Dell Driver that I can load that will aid the connection?
why this is erroring as I do not have any issues connecting my phone to either the Speaker or the Laptop?
I have a Dell Inspiron n5010. Earlier bluetooth was functioned properly. But today bluetooth icon is not displayed on the tray. could not find my bluetooth devices while searching also not able connect from my my Bluetooth device. I have updated the driver from Device Manager.
since i got my laptop "Dell Inspiron N5040",i tried many times to activate Bluetooth got device configuration from Ur official site>>and try to install it but i failed and shocked by notice appears to me if i try to install device "Activate Bluetooth using wireless switch"after many trials ,installation of other application in same driver config.is finished and Bluetooth icon appear on desktop but not working device manager , Bluetooth driver look "driver not working properly"and driver coated by yellow triangle try to uninstall it and reinstall again but nothing is changed tried "bluesoleil" and not solve my problem.....
having recently installed the correct bluetooth module inside our dell insprin1750, all the drivers loaded fine and it said all installed ok, I can see all items in the control panel/hardware list as all ok... not highlighted or anything so assume its all ok. When I click on the bluetooth icon down on the bottom is pops up and says bluetooth is working but not visable to other devices click here to change... which I do, then the problem.... nothing happens after that !
I am unable to add any devices to bluetooth list despite it saying its working ok in hardware properties etc.
My last resort is to restore pc to factory state via re-install of windows 7 but I do not really want to go down this route if at all possible.... I have tried restore to no avail.
