JACUSTOMER-exr8kfhc- :

Still trying.

Rojus Alappat :

have you downloaded the driver ?

Rojus Alappat :

got ?

JACUSTOMER-exr8kfhc- :

No. All the sites you recommend want me to scan my computer which is working extreemly well, except bluetooth. Come up with a list of things wrong and what me to pay another £50. I do not what bluetooth that badly.If my computer is lacking a bluetoth driver surely Packard Bell should be able to help me without being screwed.

Rojus Alappat :

try the following link then

Rojus Alappat :

i have already downloaded drivers frmom this link now

Rojus Alappat :

http://www.nodevice.com/driver/EN_LJ61/get75230.html

Rojus Alappat :

may i know the status please ?

JACUSTOMER-exr8kfhc- :

Downloading now

Rojus Alappat :

ok

Rojus Alappat :

May I know the status please ?

JACUSTOMER-exr8kfhc- :

I have now gone onto Packard Bell web site and downloaded the driver in a zip file. I have run out of time now but will re3turn later to se if I can install from the zip. If this works I will contact you and pay. Wherever I get the driver from and it works I will pay you for the advice. I hope that is ok with you.

Rojus Alappat :

Yea... That would be fine...

Rojus Alappat :

No issues...

Rojus Alappat :

Kindly let me know once you tried...

JACUSTOMER-exr8kfhc- :

Hi Rojus. I have tried to install from Zip but it stalls and is telling me it cannot find an external bluetooth device. What is that all about? I am giving up now and will revisit the problem tomorrow. If you have any other ideas please let me know.

Rojus Alappat :

it got installed right ?

Rojus Alappat :

was it once you installed the software and when searching for any bluetooth device ?

Rojus Alappat :

if it is like that, kindly enable bluetooth in your mobile and try once again. it will show our bluetooth device in it then

Rojus Alappat :

kindly let me know if you need further assistance

JACUSTOMER-exr8kfhc- :

No did not install. It wanted to search for an external device before it would progress. Any other ideas would be welcomed.

Rojus Alappat :

If it is searching, the driver which you have installed is correct and your bluetooth device mostly would be working fine...

Rojus Alappat :

So can you please check in your device manager that you have installed the driver properly ?

Rojus Alappat :

kindly let me know once you check it...

JACUSTOMER-exr8kfhc- :

No its not there. It simply will not work. There must be somthing else that is either missing or not switched on. I have been into device manager and it isn't there. I have tried switching it on and nothing. It is not seaching when I try to install via bluetooth is is saying it cannot find a plugged in device. I have searched the web and aparently it ios quite common and no one yet has posted a solution.The websites you sent me all require me to run a scan using there software. They all came up with various drivers that needed upgrading and I asked me to buy a programme that would update all my drivers. they all varied as to how many drivers needed updating fron 12 to over 40! I went into my Devices and chercked for uipgrades on all of my system. NONE we required. All up to date. What a fiddle.

Rojus Alappat :

are you sure that this model have bluetooth in it ?

Rojus Alappat :

or have you used it before ?

Rojus Alappat :

what i meant is have you used bluetooth in your laptop before ?

JACUSTOMER-exr8kfhc- :

I would have thought so. It has the icon above the keyboard as I said earlier and the icon on programes. No I have not used it before.

Rojus Alappat :

then either this model may not be having any bluetooth device, or your system's bluetooth device got complaint

Rojus Alappat :

that is why it is searching for external devices while installing the drivers

JACUSTOMER-exr8kfhc- :

I will go back to Packard Bell with my serial number and they can tell me ifr bluetooth is on this laptop. I cannot believe that it was not designed to have, Everything you buy now has.

Rojus Alappat :

that is right...

Rojus Alappat :

if it has bluetooth in it, that device got some complaint...

Rojus Alappat :

that is what i mentioned before

Rojus Alappat :

or the device may not be properly connected in your system

Rojus Alappat :

physically

Rojus Alappat :

so kindly check with the service centre and let me know...
