  • Hi, 

    Dell has not tested Inspiron N4010 with Windows 8. For more information on this you can check the link: http://dell.to/U7cW0Q

    Inspiron N4010 is shipped with Windows Vista and Windows 7. The drivers for Windows 8 for this system are not updated on support website. You can try installing the driver of your Bluetooth card in compatibility mode for Windows 7. That may work on your computer. 

    In order to install the correct driver for your Bluetooth card, you need to check the card installed on your computer from the ‘Netwrok adaptors’ in ‘Device Manager’: 

    • Click on “Start” and right click on “Computer”.
    • Click on “Manage”.
    • Click on “Device Manager”.
    • Under “Network adapters”, you will find the wireless/bluetooth driver listed.
    • Right click on it and click on “uninstall”. (Check and make a note of the driver installed on your system and re-install the driver from the below steps accordingly).
    • Check the box to delete the software.
    • Restart your system and click on the below link: http://dell.to/OukFUO
    • Enter the Service Tag of your system and select the operating system.
    • You will find the wireless/bluetooth driver under “Network”.
    • Click on the wireless/bluetooth driver depending on the bluetooth card your system has. (Install the same wireless/bluetooth driver which you uninstalled from “Device Manager”.
    • Click on “Download File”.
    • Select “For Single File Download via Browser”.
    • Click on “Download Now”.
    • Save the driver on your desktop.
    • Once the driver is saved on desktop, right click on it and select “Run as administrator”.
    • Install the driver by following the on screen instructions.

    If this does not work, you can try installing the same driver in compatibility mode, that may work.

    • Download the drivers for your computer from link above.
    • Right Click the driver installation file and select Properties -- > Compatibility Tab.
    • Select Windows XP from the list in the following image.

     

    • Click Apply -- > OK.
    • Right Click the file and select the ‘Run as Administrator’ option to install.

    If the issue still persists, you may need to get Windows 8 drivers from the device manufacturer's website.

    Please reply in case you have further questions.

    Thanks and Regards,
