    Check the status of the Bluetooth module. If it has:

    Hi isaaq,.

    It may be a loose cable connection or the drive may have failed.

    Since it is a laptop, the support option are limited.

    Depending on the age of the PC, you can contact the manufacturer to see if there is a diagnostic program.

    According to the OEM, your recovery disc can have a method of repair installation if it is not hardware fault.

  • Where can I find the bluetooth device on control panel of Windows XP?

    I have a wireless printer not communicating with computer.  The directions said to go to the control panel and click on the bluetooth device, but I do not see a device on the control panel. Where can I find the bluetooth device?

    One of reasons behind the first two questions of Vinod, is that not all computers have a Bluetooth built-in support.  Most modern laptops don't, but many computers to office, including the new ones, are not.

    Do you know if your computer has Bluetooth support? If you don't know, what is the brand and model of your computer?

    If you have a laptop computer, is turned on Bluetooth?  Many laptops have a (often Fn + F5) switch that turns radios (Bluetooth or wifi) on and outside.  Check with your computer user Guide.

    Please answer 4th issue of Vinod as well (brand & model printer).

  • Satellite A30 - after the BIOS update I can not install any OS

    Hey everybody

    I have a problem with my laptop Toshiba Satellite A30 PSA33E. I update my old BIOS and 1.7 and now I have a problem: I can not install any OS on my PC because it stops whenever I try to install. After 50 tests, I installed a Windows SP2, but my PC turns off always.

    My CPU is at 100% after I launch mozilla so I guess my problem is the BIOS. I try to install v1.8 BIOS and is not working and I get an error (not compatible with the installed BIOS)

    Where can I find the 1.3, 1.4, 1.5 ROM BIOS? Can someone help me please?

    The latest version of the BIOS should not cause this kind of thing. Have reset you the BIOS to its default settings?

    Have you checked the CPU radiator for an accumulation of dust? A can of compressed Air can help remove dust through the vents.

    What was the reason that you updated the BIOS, in the first place? Had previous problems with the system?
