    Trying to get a Bluetooth connection to my new Palm T|X

    Setting up Bluetooth, I checked “Turn Discovery on” & unchecked “Turn off the Bluetooth radio” in the options Tab under Bluetooth devices.

    When I tried to apply these changes I received the following error message (which Microsoft does not seem to know exists, from my search of their support section):

    An error occurred while Windows was saving your settings. The following settings were not saved: Discoverability settings Connection settings

    “Restore defaults” did not turn on Discovery, but did allow Bluetooth radio. Restore Defaults received a similar message (minus Connection settings)

    My Palm does not detect the lap top from 1 foot away, nor does the laptop detect the Palm

    my first suspect would be the bluetooth device attached to your laptop, i would try to use a different bluetooth enabled device to connect to your laptop, try someones mobile phone or even a handsfree headset if you have one

    With apologies, the problem was my goof. I did not have the hardware wireless connection switch turned on.
