Did you try searching the Board using the search tool at the top of this page? If not, then enter bluetooth for one search and "usb connect" for another. Also, see if you're able to connect some other device, like a phone, to the laptop using BT.

as to the blue tooth issue i have tested with other BT devices and they are connecting
have also uninstalled and reinstalled BT drivers and retested with both tablet and phone

The tablet is pairing but then won't connect.
With BT turned on, you should see all paired devices at the Settings/BT screen on the TPT. Are you seeing that?
At the BT settings window on the laptop you should have all boxes checked (assuming Win7) except the "Turn off BT adapter" box. Do you have that?
With the above in place, you should be able to connect by just touching the laptop BT paired device at the TPT's Settings/BT screen.
For USB connection.....Make sure "Allow sync with PC" is checked at the Settings/Accounts & sync screen on the TPT.
