Dell Inspiron N5110 Bluetooth Problem

Hi all .
I am using Dell Inspiron N5110 , but i can not use the bluetooth.
I downloaded the driver from Dell ( i'm sure the driver is correct because i downloaded using my service tag ) , but whenever i try to install , it say "Activate bluetooth using wireless switch" althought i have already turn the wireless on ( Fn + F2) .

Here is the driver i downloaded :
-dell.jpg

And here is the message i received when i install the driver :

-capture.jpg

I tried to let windows install the driver it self but there is always an error called Code 43 : Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems.

After i uninstall the driver, on the device manager the bluetooth device is shown as unknow device .

So i use a software called : Driver Identifier and download a software call BlueSoleil , after installing this, everything seemed to be fine :

But it is just for look , nothing changed , i can not start the bluetooth device, and in the control panel it does not recognize any bluetooth device :

My device hardware ids is :
USB\VID_0CF3&PID_3002&REV_0001

Did you install the driver for your wireless device from dell.com ?
If you did not, visit dell.com for lastest driver .

And please provide more details as i do in the first post of this thread if you still have any trouble !

Ok, my advice is you should post a new thread about this so people can pay more attention to your case becasuse this thread is a solved one .

P/s : In my case, the reason that i could not install the bluetooth is program conflicting, so i think you should reinstall your OS, install all the drivers first then other programs, and make a backup or ghost at well .

Good luck !

I purchased my Dell Inspiron Core i5 N5110 a week ago. If once you get done installing your driver by choosing the wrong one, or not in proper order, you will have to reinstall your operating system because the Bluetooth driver once installed will not be uninstalled properly if you selected and installed the wrong driver. I installed my OS thrice then I came to know how should I install the OS and Drivers to make this machine 100% functional.

It might not be beneficial for someone but might be a complete solution for anyone, just try, my Wireless Driver problem, Bluetooth problem, PCI Simple Communication Controller error and mic problem were resolved by following the order of installation. There are almost approx 15 drivers that needs a restart of your machine, either asked or not, you should restart every time.

(All this is for Windows 7 x64 - Go to the Dell website and follow the order of the headings and the numbered order of the drivers - The procedure WORKED 100% FOR ME, there is no guarantee for the others)

1. Install OS with Service Pack 1

CHIPSET
2. HM67 Express Chipset Family
3. USB 3.0 Host Controller
4. Management Engine Interface
5. RTS5138 Card Reader

SERIAL ATI
6. Rapid Storage Technology

SYSTEM UTILITIES
7. Dell System Software

DRIVERS FOR OS DEPLOYMENT
8. S2230MX Monitor (Copy the extracted files to the system 32 folder)

NETWORK
9. RTL8105E-VB 10/100 Ehternet Controller
10. Wireless 1702 802.11 b/g/n, BT 3.0+HS - September 9, 2011 - Version 9.2.0.412, A03 (Do not install any other bluetooth driver otherwise, it would be conflicted and will not be uninstalled if not worked and the OS will need to be reinstalled and all the above procedure will be repeated)

AUDIO
11. Dell Driver

VIDEO
12. HD Graphics, HD Graphics 3000
13 nVidia GeForce GT 525M (I have the one built in, select as per your specs)

INPUT
14. ALPS TouchPad

APPLICATION
15. QuickSet
16. Dell Digital Delivery

CPU
17. Turbo Boost Technology Monitor

I hope I am not missing any driver and the above will definitely resolve the problem.

Thanks,

Sarfraz
