Hi, I have a Toshiba laptop running Vista. Is it possible to get Bluetooth functionality on it without a Bluetooth dongle, i.e. by downloading some software? If so, would you please tell me how?
Thank you.

Since Bluetooth uses radio waves unless your laptop supported Bluetooth when you bought it the answer is no. You require a dongle or aerial.

What model is your laptop?

What's the complete model number of that Toshiba Satellite L350 series laptop?
A dash and additional characters after L350 comprises the complete model number.

The Toshiba Satellite L350-171 laptop appears to have sold in the U.K. and came with Windows Vista Home Premium 32-bit.
It does not appear to have any built-in bluetooth device and port.
