Thinkpad T510 not seeing it's bluetooth adapter

2010-07-08, 2:11 AM

Hello,

 

I have a new Thinkpad T510 4313-CTO with Bluetooth installed, I recently downgraded to Windows XP and I cannot get the bluetooth driver to see the bluetooth adapter, I get the "No Local Bluetooth Device found".    I have tried reinstalling the driver, but no success yet.  Any suggestions.

Try Fn+F5. That should bring up a screen with soft-keys to turn Bluetooth on or off (it's on the Wireless Radio tab). Once you turn on Bluetooth here your Bluetooth device should immediately appear.

1. Check your BIOS to turn on your Bluetooth function

2. Download your Bluetooth Driver and install it if you get an error message Device not detected....

3.Download Hot Key Driver for you laptop

and then press Fn+5 you should have Radio Display (Wireless and Bluetooth) on off switch.

 

*Now if you see your task bar you should plug and play driver utilities being shown (Device being installed...)

 

Cheers :)
