Hi,

It would help if you could provide some details about your computer/laptop?

System Info - See Your System Specs

Is there a bluetooth button above the keyboard? Check to see that it is on.

Regards,
Golden

I am on the net with my blackberry phone. Its a Lenovo laptop. It has Windows7 instaled as the default and in that it has bluetooth automaticly installed. But now if I go and do my settings and try to say restore it doesn't want to. It is almost asif it is no longer there! When I try to send something it just doesn't want to work. I don't know what else to do

Check to see if there is a button to turn on bluetooth on the panel just above the keyboard. Or on the keyboard itself - like this:

FN+F5 should turn it on.

If you do that, does the bluetooth indicator light turn on?

What model Lenovo laptop is this?

Is there a locking switch next to the 4 LED lights? Check to see that it hasn't been switched on.
