I have a problem with my notebook, which is an Acer 5740g. It has a built-in bluetooth. I've instaled the device driver ( the os is windows 7 ultimate) from the cd containing the notebook drivers (for xp, vista, and 7). I used it two times to transfer some photos from my phone ( nokia 5610 xpress music) and all worked fine.
I did something like this:
1 - press the bluetooth button to turn it on.
2 - activate bluetooth on the phone and select the files needed to transfer them to notebook and selected transfer via bluetooth. The phone searched for other bluetooth devices, found my notebook and then transfered the files ( photos).
3- on the notebook screen appeared a pop-up asking me to allow or deny receiving the files. I granted permission.
4- after doing that I press again the bluetooth button to disable it.
I used this method two times and all worked fine.
But today, when I turnt on the bluetooth device on my notebook, my phone couldn't find any bluetooth device. Strange... Also, I clicked on the "Open settings" tab of the bluetooth device on my noteboook and nothing happened.
Briefly, I think my bluetooth does not work, but I'm pretty sure that the "hardware" is fine. I suspect a driver problem, although every time I turn on the device it says "the device driver was installed successfully".
Can anyone help me?
Thanks and sorry for writing a lot.
