Windows 7: Issues with Dell D400 Laptop, Dell 355 Bluetooth and W7

Issues with Dell D400 Laptop, Dell 360 Bluetooth and W7

Typo on the title, I ment Truemobile 360, NOT 355.

I have an older Dell D400 I'm trying to breath some life back into and I thought I would try out Windows 7.

Well, I got everything working good I think, but the Dell 360 Truemobile bluetooth.

Windows 7 just won't see it. No matter what driver pack I try, it says no bluetooth found. The official Dell Vista pack asks me to turn on the bluetooth but I can't even figure out how to do that, and the light on the laptop is not lit up.

I see dell has this app/patch that it suppose to enable the bluetooth but that also tells me no blue tooth found.

I can't use my bluetooth cellphone as a modem, help please.

That being said, other people have been having the same issue with other laptops, same internal bluetooth and Windows 7 but what worked for them doesn't seem to want to work for me.

On a side note it work's under Windows XP, just not Windows 7.

I opened the computer, removed the BT, rebooted, shut down, reinstalled the BT, rebooted and it's working now.


Thanks anyway I guess.

Try installing Bluetooth 370 for Windows 7 64 bit edition that came out from the Alienware 15X models.

It worked for my 355 bluetooth with Windows 7 32 bit. At last I have my old bluetooth working again.

Here's the link, hope it works:
