Getting the Bluetooth Driver to install on my Inspiron 1420

This question is not answered

Hi,

I went to the Dell Drivers and Downloads site in order to get a driver for my bluetooth.  The driver I found was C:\DELL\DRIVERS\R140135, I checked the compatibility and it is supposed to be compatible with my system and Windows Vista 32 bit.  However, whenever I try to install it, a window pops up instructing me to push Fn+F2 or the Radio on/off switch.  Fn+F2 does not work and there is no radio switch.  I tried to start over from the beginning, now it's telling my I need Windows Vista to install this driver ... I am using Windows Vista.  I checked the Device Manager ... no exlamation points or question marks.  Does anyone know what's going on??? 

Thanks,

Rannuda

  • I replaced Vista 32 bit with Windows 7 32 bit and I get the same problem trying to install the Blue Tooth driver on my Vostro 1500.

    Please help

  • I had the same issue.  Very frustrating.  I have the same Inspiron 1420 w/windows 7.  Found this webpage:

    Installed the file & it worked!  Good luck.

  • Eyceman360 - You rock. The patch fixed the problem on my Vostro 1500 running a clean install of Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit.
