    Hi there,
    Can someone help me? I have bluetooth in my presario laptop but I am unable to use it. Unable to send/receive file via bluetooth from other device. I am getting message : make sure bluetooth radio is plugged in. When I checked the audio in bluetooth device manager, I have tried to connect the audio but there was a message : no local bluetooth device was detected.

    It's very confusing. What do I need to do? Please advise.

    Thanks in advance

    is the blue tooth switched on - sometimes it switches on with the wireless signal
    then in device manager you should see the device

    post back a device manager screen shot

    Device Manager
    Post back the results in device manager
    If you cannot access the internet with this PC, then you will need to copy the program across to the faulty PC
    Save the file to a USB flash drive or other removable media. Plug it into the working computer with internet access and copy the file and paste here.

    how to access device manager for different windows versions
    http://www.computerhope.com/issues/ch000833.htm

    windows key and pause Key should open to allow device manager to be seen,
    on a laptop you may need to use windows key + FN key + Pause Key

    if this does not work then

    Windows 7 or Vista
    Click on the Start Orb
    In the Start Search box type
    device manager and then press enter

    -------------------

    Start > control Panel {Vista set to classic view}> system > {Vista, device manager on left hand side} {XP hardware Tab, device manager button} >
    windows 7
    start > control panel> System and Security> Device Manager

    To post a screen shot of the active window, hold the Alt key and press the PrtScn key. Open the Windows PAINT application and Paste the screen shot. You can then use PAINT to trim to suit, and save it as a JPG format file.
