Yet another W510 Bluetooth issue !

2015-07-27, 1:39 AM

Greetings all experts,

I've done all that I know of to enable Bluetooth on this W510. It is model 4391-CP5, Serial #R******. There is no Bluetooth in the BIOS which I upgraded to the most recent 1.45. Fn+F5 has no Bluetooth setting. There is no "Bluetooth Support" in Local Services. Any attempt to install any Lenovo based or Intel Bluetooth drivers gives the No Device Found. I'm at a loss. Is it possible there is no Bluetooth Card in the sytem ? I can't find any data sheet on this particular configuration. Any help greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance to all who read this.

 

Sincerely,

Donald

Does the Lenovo driver download site offer Bluetooth drivers for your model? If not, your laptop shouldn't have it. Otherwise, try going into the device manager in Windows. Are there any unknown devices? If not, either your laptop doesn't have it or its disabled at the BIOS level.

Hello Paper Tape;

No setting available in the BIOS, driver install stops at "No Bluetooth Device Found". So, I ordered the compatible card with EDR 2.1.
