X121e no Bluetooth???

Hi, Ive already read several posts on bluetooth on the X121e specifically Im using a 3501

 

All I want to do is connect to a bluetooth mouse

 

bluetooth is on in the bios

it has the preinstalled lenovo OS windows 7

 

and in there I can find no evidence of bluetooth existing on the laptop

there is no mention of bluetooth in

Access connections

control panel

 

I have enabled (as reccomended here) the service in services and set to settings as reccomended

I have downloaded the bluetooth driver (which tells me no device detected)

Enhanced data rate software, tells me the latest version is installed

 

 

access connections help  tells me to click on "connect to devices tab"...which doesnt exist in basic or advanced !

 

[fn]+[f5] does not have any bluetooth option only WIFI

 

I have tried lenovo update it has created no devices

 

device manager does not list any bluetooth device

 

like another thread, clicking on any bluetooth software in the programfiles\thinkpad\bluetooth software folder does nothing (so why ship it/)

 

Does this model actually have BLUETOOTH?

 

and if not why is it in the BIOS

also why is everything hidden refering to bluetooth

Re: X121e no Bluetooth???

Hello,

 

Usually, it says on the order confirmation you receive from Lenovo whether or not the model you have purchased has a Bluetooth module installed, if I recall correctly.  If you did not buy direct from Lenovo, it may be possible to find this out by looking up the machine type.  What are the three letters after the 3501 in your machine type?  Assuming they are not CTO, which means "configure to order" (i.e., a custom machine, which may or may not have been ordered with the Bluetooth radio module installed), it may be listed somewhere on Lenovo's web site as to whether that configuration ships with the Bluetooth radio installed in it.

Re: X121e no Bluetooth???

Hi,

 

Thanks

 

ok the laptop is used in the business I support..

its a standard sales model (sorry dont have it on hand at the moment but the advert where we bought the thing from says it has bluetooth.

 

so I withdraw the question as to whether it has it or not but am still left with the WHY THE HECK is it not seemingly existing within the O/S W7 Pro 64 bit if I did not mention that before.

To turn on Bluetooth on my X121e (I was searching for ages) I needed to do Fn + F5 and then click Advanced (or similar) to show the WiFi and Bluetooth options.

Apparently it is not there, but if you click in the middle of the mask it will appear.
Take a look at this screenshot:

Good luck!

Re: X121e no Bluetooth???

On my screen, the place you say "double click here" is described as "Advanced".  For me, I couldn't see anything to do with Bluetooth until I clicked Advanced.  I'd wondered if Bluetooth had been left out until I found that.

And if you didn't install the real BT Driver ( only that facade you get with normal PNP ) then there will be no working BT.
