Hi Sue Rose,

After a complete reinstall of Windows XP you need to install the drivers for Bluetooth adapter. Use the following link to download the required driver:

http://www.dell.com/support/drivers/us/en/19/DriverDetails/Product/inspiron-1525?driverId=NJND6&osCode=WW1&fileId=2731100742

After the download is complete try installing the drivers.

Please revert for clarification.

And this patch:

After installing check if the issue is fixed.
