Windows 7 Dell Inspiron 1545 Wireless 365 Bluetooth problem

This question has suggested answer(s)

Hi,

I have Inspiron 1545 and I've installed the latest available "Windows  7 Ultimate", but the OS could not detect the Dell Wireless 365 Bluetooth Module.

The Nokia N95 bluetooth finds the laptop bluetooth module, but there is no reaction from the Windows 7 OS. There is no Bluetooth device in the "Device Manager".

Is there any solutions to this problem ?

    Emailed DELL support about my issue and this is their reply:

    ...I see from our records that you are contacting us regarding your Inspiron 1545 with Windows Vista 64 bit on it.
    I understand your concern from the e-mail regarding the issue with the system .I sincerely apologize for the inconvenience caused and would be glad to assist you.

    I see from the records that your system was shipped with Windows Vista 64 bit and the driver are only available for the same.

    Since the windows 7 is still not released there are no compatible driver for the same.

    Once the windows 7 is released, we should has the compatible driver for you system....

    Personally, I thought that the Vista 64 bit drivers would be compatible with Windows 7 but apparently not.

    Stumbled across this post:

    which mentions that the same DELL BLuetooth module was used with Windows 7 successfully by using the following update:

    Quoted:

    To get the bluetooth module working, I’ve had to install the Widcomm bluetooth software – I was unable to load just the driver. This bluetooth stack includes some extras that I really don’t need such as Office integration and the ability to share files over bluetooth.

    I have tried that and it didn't work actually that article wasn't about a inspiron 1545 it was about a latitude , it is passed the release of windows 7 and there still is no driver for it. please release one already.

  • Hello,

    I recently had the same problem with my fathers Inspirons 1545 bluetooth driver.

    Well, what I did worked. It'll probably work with you too.

    Get your Resource DVD (with the original drivers). When the Resource program opens, select Windows XP 64 and install the bluetooth driver (Dell Wireless 365 Bluetooth Module Rev: A04).

    Hope sucess.
