    I just bought a new laptop that only has 2 usb ports, but it has built in bluetooth. is it possible to pair the laptop with my bluetooth devices without using the usb things that come with the devices? keyboard mouse, headset, ect..

    in the computers control panel should be a Bluetooth option....click on that and it should give you the option to SCAN for available devices. Before you start "scanning" make sure ANY device you want to connect is in "pairing" mode and ready to be paired
