Bluetooth missing from IdeaPad Y450

The model I chose to buy on Lenovo's website stated that the product came with Bluetooth Version 2.1 + EDR.  Pressing Fn + F5 to view the wireless devices only displays the Wi-Fi.  I attempted to install the Bluetooth drivers from Lenovo's website to get the message, "There is no bluetooth device on this computer."

 

I initially posted my issue under another thread, but saw that it had been "solved."  Please help!

 

IdeaPad Y450

Model - 41896MU

 

- Carling, with shiny new Bluetooth headphones with nowhere to go.

Re: Bluetooth missing from IdeaPad Y450

in device manager ( right click my computer > manage > device manager ), check that if there's any bluetooth adapter or unknown device first.

if you don't see both, i can say you don't have any bluetooth.

Re: Bluetooth missing from IdeaPad Y450

then you don't have bluetooth on your system. do not attempt to install drivers for bluetooth.

if you need bluetooth, you can change your wireless adapter with bluetooth &wireless integrated or you can buy bluetooth usb device.

However, the specifications on the website for this model plainly state that it comes with Blutetooth.

I called customer support and they said that the model is too new and to call back later.  Seriously?

Re: Bluetooth missing from IdeaPad Y450

I had the exact problem and finally found some solution..

 

Fn + F5 will not work untill Lenovo Energy Management is installed.. So install that first and hit Fn + F5 to see wireless on and bluetooth off.. set that to on and Windows will install the drivers automatically from windows update.. 

 

Or you can also use lenovo bluetooth driver

Lenovo Energy Management is already installed.  Fn + F5 works but only shows the Wireless Card.

Re: Bluetooth missing from IdeaPad Y450

I bought Lenovo IdeaPad Y450 418956Q on 22nd January, 2010. I am facing the same problem, i.e., I cannot access my bluetooth device. I looked the Device Manager, it's not there! The specification says, it comes with Bluetooth EDR 2.1......do I have to get my laptop replaced or this model doesn't come with bluetooth at all ?

@ laptopgeek

you have bluetooth module, ( it's the newest version ) but i think there's no available drivers for it, so, you need to wait for drivers.
