Help! Bluetooth not active and not looking like it's accesible at all...

2009-12-26, 3:33 AM

I'm totally confused, I bought a T500 not long ago, but I can't bring up the bluetooth control panel at all!!!  :(  My laptop spec said on the purchase order:

 

62P6054   VBB INTEGR.BLUETOOTH PAN

 

It's a Windows 7 64-bit version... and nada.  When I click the start button and type bluetooth, the blue Bluetooth control panel comes up but absolutely nothing happens when I click on it.  I tried right clicking on it and running it as an administrator but no dice.

 

Any ideas?  Thanks a ton in advance!!!

Solved! See the solution

Now that is weird... I just tried it on mine (start > "bluetooth" > click "Bluetooth") and nothing happened.

 

Try typing into the start menu: Change Bluetooth Settings

 

you should get the settings i think you're looking for!

Thanks for the reply, but no dice...  It brings up a search results dialog when I do that, but no bluetooth setting options are in the results.

 

What even odder is that I can't find a bluetooth device in the device manager...  :(  Maybe I need to call Lenovo support directly?  I'm wondering if it's somehow not compatible with the 64-bit version of Windows 7 -- but wouldn't they have tested it with that configuration?  Bummed...

Hi ricochet, Fn-F5 should show your Bluetooth card. Is it powered on?

USB-C: Just cos it fits don't mean it works.
I don't work for Lenovo. I'm a crazy volunteer!
