Is Bluetooth standard on the Lenovo T420?

Hello,

 

I purchased my Lenovo T420 four years ago and no longer have the documentation or order slips. I cannot remember if Bluetooth was a standard feature or an add on; some Google searching seems to suggest that it is standard on all T420 laptops.

 

In any case, I can't get it to work. Pressing Fn+F5 only shows "802.11 Wireless Radio".

 

I have updated my BIOS and checked that Bluetooth is Enabled under Security > I/O Port Access.

 

When I try to install the Bluetooth software and driver I get the error "No Bluetooth device was detected".

 

I can't find any more solutions on Google...please assist?

 

Thank you.

Hello and welcome,

 

If your machine wasn't a CTO (configure to order) you should be able to get the specs here.  Go to SUPPORT (above) then click Search by Machine Type Model  ( <---or just click here) and enter your MT-M (something like 1234-xyz).

 

As you can see from ThinkPad Notebooks; 2005 to 2013 (withdrawn models)  not all T420 models had BT.

Hi Zoltan,

 

Thanks so much. My machine type was 4177-CTO (configure to order), and I don't imagine I would have paid for Bluetooth if it was an extra feature as I didn't own any Bluetooth devices four years ago.

 

Appreciate the quick reply!

You should be able to get specific parts details here: http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/partslookup

 

Enter your serial number.  Please don't post your S/N here.  The BT daughter card in my T420  is FRU 60Y3271.

 

Sorry, I should have included this in my first post.
