Hi buddies,

It look hard to do but it isn't. If you do what I say you'll solve your problems with bluetooth at Inspiron 1525 runing Windows 7 easily.

a. Download the driver at Dell.com:
- 1. Go to http://www.dell.com.br
- 2. Click on the link "Drivers & Downloads" in the end of the site.
- 3. Select your model ("Laptops", "Inspiron Laptop", "1525") and confirm it.
- 4. Click on Network.
- 5. Download the "Wireless 355 Bluetooth Module (Bluetooth 2.0 + EDR)"
- 6. Save the file "R140135.exe".

b. Install the driver:
- 1. Execute the file "R140135.exe".
- 2. Open the folder "C:\dell\drivers\R140135\3100_216".
- 3. Execute the file "Setup.exe".
- 4. When the driver ask you to active your Bluetooth antena, click in "Cancel.
- 5. Open the folder "C:\dell\drivers\R140135\3100_216\Win32"
- 6. Execute the file "Inst.exe".
- 7. Click in "Next" button to begin the installation.

Note: When the software ask you to active the Bluetooth DO NOT CANCEL.

- 8. Open the folder "C:\Program Files\WIDCOMM\Bluetooth Software"
- 9. Execute the file "BTTray.exe". The icon will appear in the system tray (next the clock).
- 10. Click with the right button in Bluetooth icon and turn it on.
- 11. The installation will continue automatically.
- 12. Click in "OK" button to finish

That is how I solve my problem with my Dell Inspiron 1525 runing Windows 7. It's working perfectly.


I hope it help you guys.

Ok, Guys this works!!! Thanks to the great person who posted this. Let me add a few bits.Firstly the link he has provided will not give the file R140135.exe.It gives R161378. I don't know if this works as I googled for R140135 and downloaded that file which is easily available if you type on google . Next just follow the instructions but somewhere it will say bluetooth device found ,press ok to activate.Select OK but I got bluetooth not found after I pressed ok.Weird it seemed so I just pressed cancel.Then the installation finished. After that I just followed the instructions i.e. find BTtray.exe and after clicking it started installing the drivers.I then realised the bluetooth device not found was because the drivers were not installed before.

Hi

I have this problem : "I'm using Vostro 1510 Laptop. Whenever I boot my pc, it says new hardware found and ask me to install Bluetooth Peripheral Device Driver software. I tried with drive cd which I got along with the laptop. But its not working. Every time booting the pc, it will ask me to install the drive software. In the device manager, it shows Others>Bluetooth Peripheral Device and says This device is not configured correctly. "

It's a disaster : (

my device is not working properly, and I believe this service is necessary.

please help me .

thanks
