    What happened to the bluetooth driver that you had to download it?
    The correct driver was on this laptop when it left the factory.

    There are several models that start out with g73jw. Which is yours?
    g73jw-ty098v
    g73jw-tz168v
    g73jw-tz130v
    g73jw-a1
    g73jw-xn1
    g73jw-rog

    Hi plodr ,,it had a hard drive failure and was replaced and the bluetooth was not working correct after that so the driver was updated from the Asus site but as far as i can tell it is actually windows driver that asus link to ,, and maybe there lies the problem
    Its a G73JW-A1

    Glad it worked. (y)

    I read that Microsoft included a patch for that bluetooth exploit in the July updates, so Windows should be safe if it's up to date.
