Cannot install Bluetooth driver on Windows 7 - X200

Dear all,

 

I have a problem after installing Windows 7 on my Thinkpad X200.

Bluetooth with Enhanced Data Rate Software II cannot be installed.

It said that "Bluetooth device cannot be detected blah...". I also noticed that the bluetooth green light is off while the wireless light is on.

 

Thank you very much in advance for your help

Hi wipoou,


According to support page, your system has built-in Bluetooth, however to activate it, you are required to install the Hotkey features, then reboot your system, thereafter press Fn-F5 to radio on the Bluetooth, once it is detected by Windows, install Bluetooth driver from lenovo.

 

Hope this helps.

Hi Maliha,

 

Thank you very much for your reply. I tried the step you suggested.

After the hotkey features was installed, I restarted the machine, pressed fn F5 and tried to press the bluetooth radio on button, but it was not activated.

I restarted the machine again, and did the same step, this time the button was pressed and bluetooth was activated.

Now the problem was sloved. Thank you very much for your help.

Re: Cannot install Bluetooth driver on Windows 7 - X200

On a related note, I just bought a bluetooth mouse for my X200 tablet, believing it was bluetooth capable. Now I fear I may have been incorrect. The model number for my tablet is 7450-BP8. Should this computer have bluetooth? If not, is there anything I can do to still use the new mouse?

Yeah, there is no built-in Bluetooth in your system. If you don't mind USB dongle, you can use the mouse through it, they're inexpensive. Otherwise, you can install internal Bluetooth card in your tablet if you're OK with opening the system and if there is an empty slot in your system, instructions can be found in the HMM and at lenovo service videos website.

 

Last alternative is to return the mouse if the store you bought it from has a a return policy and if you don't want Bluetooth connectivity anymore.

Thanks, I went ahead and bought one of the mini usb dongle's for under $3. Guess it'll take up a USB slot but it'll be nice to have bluetooth now. Thanks. Smiley Happy
