It look hard to do but it isn't. If you do what I say you'll be able to solve your problems with Bluetooth in the Inspiron 1525 laptop.

A. Download the driver at

- 1. Go to Dell Site
- 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
- 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.

I hope it help you!
Hi Verediano,

I have a dell inspiron 1525 laptop and I have upgraded my windows to windows 7 but i'm unable to run bluetooth on my laptop. I tried your idea in above post but it didn't work out. After executing "Inst.exe" the software didn't ask to activate bluetooth device. Even then I tried executing the "BTTray.exe" file but nothing appeared in the tray although a service called BTTray was running(as I saw it in task manager). But when I try to start bluetooth nothing happens and when I try to send something via Bluetooth(by right click->send->bluetooth) then bluetooth send wizard starts but it fails to send after I click next.
Please suggest some ideas for getting my bluetooth software started.
In anticipation of a fast and positive result.
Thanks for listening me out.
when I execute the ttray no icon appers in the taskbar
