S10-3t bluetooth card

Anyone know what bluetooth card is used in the S10-3t? I purchase the S10-3t without the internal bluetooth card and I would like to have it. Otherwise, I will just buy a USB dongle. Thanks in advance!

If somebody comes up with a reasonably decent disassembly guide for the S10-3t, I'm willing to give this a shot.

That guide is for the S10-2, not the S10-3t, the key factor is that, structurally, they are significantly different and the guide doesn't apply, in large part due to the hinge on the S10-3t.

Anybody willing to take their machine apart and report back with photos? I started but couldn't get very far without concerns about the hinge structure.

Re: S10-3t bluetooth card

I bought the one that link to ebay, its too big, I am MCP and I cant find one for this yet, I even bought the Dell style card that can go into SSD are PCI-e Express slot and bios will not let you boot so I let bios pass then install hot and windows wont show it. I using win7 x64 2gb ddr 6400 new hd with 7200 rpm till my new segate 500 7200 with 4gb ssd on board. So far with 4gb sd card for readyboost its flying but want the bluetooth. you have to take over 30 screws off to get to that area . Base, black plastic trip at lcd, keyboard , palm and 6- 8 screws on hing of lcd but not too bad. I have the hp touch and that was worst but that an 12" so. Has any one called lenvo to see if we can direct buy it?

Re: S10-3t bluetooth card

What a joke they said part # is 200-2326 but I cant buy the part. I said if I had it in mine and it went bad how would you replace it. I hear some one say that if you hack the bios you can get the ssd card to work so I am sure it the same for the pci e express card slot to use my Dell card Bluetooth, if any one know how to hack the bios please post.

Re: S10-3t bluetooth card

I found the solution for the Bluetooth module in the S10-3t.

 

BCM94313HMGB

 

is the module what lenovo uses in the S10-3t with Bluetooth.

Once you get this module and swap it with your current Wifi card, you will not need any BIOS modification.

I did this and now I have Bluetooth on my S10-3t.

I bought my module from this link:
