I upgraded to Windows 8. Now when I install the Bluetooth Drivers downloaded from Dell Website, it shows 'This program has compatibility issues'.
How can I get my Bluetooth working, where can I get the driver for windows 8.
Hi Vihang_Alienware M15x,
Dell has not tested Alienware M15x laptop with Windows 8.Therefore 'Windows 8' compatible drivers for your system are not available on Dell support website. However, I did some research and found that the following steps have been producing positive results. You may want to try to see if it works for you.
If issue persists, try using the 'setup' file to install drivers in compatibility mode (Next Step)
Note: Though the recommended steps have exhibited some positive results, you may still experience bluetooth issues as the laptop is not tested to work optimally with Windows 8. You may want to have a look at the list of all Dell systems tested with Windows 8: http://dell.to/SQojxkPlease reply if you have any further questions. I would be glad to help.

Hi guys!This is my solution how to install driver for bluetooth mini card 370 on dell latitude e6500 in WINDOWS 10 t.p.
I believe it works also on WINDOWS 8.1
I'm planning to create a post on my blog
So this is it:1. You need your driver in C:\dell\drivers\.... directory in my case: C:\dell\drivers\R226750\R226750\Win642. Go to: Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Troubleshooting3. Choose under "PROGRAMS" 'Run programs made for previous versions of Windows'4. Select: Advanced5. Click on: Run as administrator6. Hit on: Next7. Choose: Not Listed8. Hit again on: Next9. Select your executable file. In my case it is: C:\dell\drivers\R226750\R226750\Win64\Inst.exe10. Hit again on: Next11. Use: Try recommended settings12. Click on: Test the program...And installation of bluetooth driver goes on.
Thanks! I Tried doing a clean win 7 install with bluetooth installed correctly, but the win 10 upgrade disabled it. i uninstalled the widcomm bluetooth then followed your steps and it worked. Thanks!
