  1. With the Bluetooth® capable laptop, and the SoundLink® speaker both turned on, press and hold the Bluetooth® button on the speaker for three seconds to make the speaker discoverable. ...
  2. Set your Bluetooth® -capable laptop's Bluetooth setting to to "Discoverable."

You may also need a special app on your computer, to route its sound output (whether from a media player, or just the laptop's whole sound system) to the Bluetooth output to the SoundLink speaker.

Let me know when you have any difficulty with the above, and what it is. Thanks.
