SL510 and no BlueTooth

2010-03-14, 0:08 AM

Just bought a new SL510 / windows 7 from Costco.

 

In addition to coming with almost no documentation I can't get the BT to work.   Entering FN-F5 does not show any BlueTooth device.

 

Anyone have any insite on this?

 

Thanks in advance,

Tony

Hi Tony,


Welcome to the forum!


What is 7 character machine type and model number of your SL510? it can be found on the back and looks something like 2668-KHU.

Hi and welcome to the forum ravithumma79,


Press Fn+F5 -> then turn on Bluetooth.


I assume you customized your SL510 with Bluetooth, also check through parts lookup to confirm this:- http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/product.do?template=/partslookup/partsLookup.vm 


Hope it helps.
