No bluetooth on T430

2018-01-07, 19:09 PM

So I got a Lenovo T430 this christmas and it's my understanding that it is supposed to have bluetooth. I've gone through every guide and followed all the steps but I still do not see any bluetooth. Hitting Fn-F5 only puts me into airplane mode, going into bluetooth settings just shows me that I have no bluetooth enable button. I checked the device manager and can find nothing in there related to bluetooth.....

 

If anyone knows what the deal is please help.

Hello and welcome,

 

Bluetooth was optional on the T430.  What's the MT-M of your laptop?  That should allow determining its actual configuration.  (like 2342-38U as an example of one w/out BT).

2349-S4D

I'm assuming this is the number you want?

SUPPORT recognized that MT-M but doesn't give details.  PSREF docs for NA and WE don't include it either :(

You can try doing a parts lookup based on your serial number (don't post it here!):
