Hello,

My hard drive crashed in my Dell Inspiron 1545. I replaced the drive and re-installed Vista SP2 and all the current drivers. Bluetooth Devices icon is listed in the control panel, but it is unable to locate any devices. My BlackBerry can locate the Dell Wireless 365 Bluetooth module but is unable to pair. Is there an additional patch or switch setting that needs to be installed or updated?
I installed the drivers from the Dell support site. Now when I go back to reinstall the 645 Bluetooth drivers, I get a message back that my current driver is newer than what I am trying to download.
The wireless radio is ON, as I use a wireless network connection.
