If you know you have a Bluetooth card already in you computer (i have a dell inspiron 1721 and I can see this by lifting up the panel in front of your keyboard and its there, a small card in the right corner)
but you can't turn on your bluetooth on your computer, it doesn't show up anywhere like in control panel or in the bar at the bottom of your screen, or your bluetooth light is not on, and no hot key is working to turn it on, the slide button on the side/front of your computer isn't turning it on, don't worry!
I had this problem (only my wireless worked, but not BT) , my bluetooth totally dissapeared after formatting and reinstalling my vista.
The link below has a software you need to download and install and this will turn your bluetooth on back for you, it finds it, brings it back and takes care of everything.
Here is the link:

if it doesn't help go to Dells support website and in the search bar just type in "BTW Radio ON"
Thats how I found it.
is Dells support website.

Hope this works.
If you still need drivers go to Dells support website, and put your computer details there and it will tell you what drivers you need.
Thank you

A few words of thanks would be greatly appreciated. Add comment

hey there,

here is a link where you can get all the drivers you are in search of :
> allex
first you need to turn the blue tooth on.
on the right hand side see the front corner axactly along with DVD drive. slide the bar/ button it will be turn on and light will start to blink. then go to control panel and open blue tooth devices then go to option tab and check mark the last 3 options. then go to devices and press add button then follow the instructions.

i hope it will work.

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 Vista easily.

a. Download the driver at
- 1. Go to
- 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.
I have XPS M1530. And have similar problem.

- 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).
After these steps mentioned by you. I don't find any icon in my system tray.

Please help.

really thnx dude..its really working , my friend to got the same problem because of u he to can solved his problem really thanx once again
thnx dude its really working, my friend vinay too got solved his problem.... thnx a lot

I bet that you formatted the computer with your bluetooth adapter turned on :P. You have to use your CD with drivers from Dell and unzip the bluetooth driver to C:\dell\drivers\R140135. After that close the Fn + F2 thing and go to that directory. You will have 2 folders Win32 & Win 64..depending on the vista version you have installed use the folder coresponding to your OS. Launch "Inst.exe" and wait until another Fn+F2 prompt will apear. Close this prompt and the install will finish. Restart your computer and after Vista boots up you will see in the tray the bluetooh icon. Right Click to turn the adapter on and the drivers will be reinstalled. Let me know if this worked for you. :P

Thanx alot!!!! ur suggestion was very helpful, it saved me alot of stress. I went thru the steps and I got my bluetooth device back to life..

Out of all the talk on this board, this advice, looking somewhere I would have never figured out on my own, finally fixed the problem.

mein hoo na!!, thanks for taking the time to help the rest of us out.
hey thanks for the trick ! but I still have a problem, that is when I restart windows (i have windows 7) I can't find the bluetooth icon in the tray =( any help ?? thank you
it helped me!!!!
That u so much mein hoo na!!!
works like a charm.

Suptime, I too have Win7. I did what mein hoo na said up to the restart part. I just let if finish the install and wallah.. it was right there in the tray. I turned it on and it installed all the rest of the stuff. No restart required for me.
i tried all the tricks on this page and it still didn't work ... u think that when this happends to all inspiron 1525 that dell or Microsoft would do something...
why cant I install bluetooth device on my computer..............
