how do i get bluetooth working on a studio 1749?

This question is not answered

Hi, ive had my laptop for just over a year and didnt actually realise it had bluetooth lol

sounds stupid i know! anyway i have recently updated to the latest bios (a08) and had a look in the bios and saeen the setting bluetooth (enable / disable) - it was enabled anyway but i really have no idea how i get it to work, in my device manager i see no sign of bluetoot, no apps or anything which says bluetooth, i also see no signals saying its picked up my phones  bluetooth etc..

So with it being enabled in the bios, how do i use it or find it, im really confused about it?

  • Just because the enable/disable is there doesn't mean the system has bluetooth - you would have had to pay for that option when you bought the system.  If you didn't specifically order bluetooth, you don't have it.
