    Got a couple of laptops for gifts for others this recent christmas. Got an extra one of these for myself.

    http://global.acer.com/products/notebook/as7520.htm

    I bought them both from newegg.

    I have the bluetooth button on the laptop and I've searched and searched on how to find some application to run a search for my bluetooth but nothing. I downloaded this driver thinking this would correct the problem:

    Bluetooth_Broadcom_v6.0.1.5000_Vista

    Again nothing...

    I went into the help section of my vista and I got these directions:

    Click the Start button , click Control Panel, click Hardware and Sound, and then click Bluetooth Devices.

    There is no "bluetooth devices".

    Can anyone help me. If I was wrong and for some reason this laptop does not have a built in bluetooth antenna is there a inexpensive solution so I can use my current bluetooth with my laptop?

    Hi, has anyone responding to you regarding this issue? Or, have you solved the problem? I'm running into the same thing with my laptop (TravelMate 4504).
