Where to Find the Bluetooth Device in my DELL 1440 Inspiron?

  • Hi Friends,


    I recently bought a new DELL 1440 Inspiron laptop.

    Where to find the controls of Bluetooth Device (i.e on/off) ?

    In my Configuration, they mentioned ..... "Dell Wireless 365 Bluetooth"

    Pls, Help me in this.

    Thanks in Advance...


  • Hi Venkat, and welcome to the forums Yes


    The Wireless 365 bluetooth you mention, is a bluetooth card built onto the motherboard.  It's not a physical device you can switch on and off.

    It simply helps identify any bluetooth device you connect to/pair with your laptop Wink

    From experience, I've found that:   “Beauty is in the eye of the beer-holder”!!

  • Hi TheRealFireblade,

    Thank you very much for your reply.

    I had one more question/doubt :::: I'm not finding any Bluetooth Icon in my desktop tray or StartUp Menu.

    1) Will the drivers already installed or I need to do it?


    2) How to activate bluetooth fecility in my laptop.?


    Thanks in Advance.
