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 W7 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 W7.

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

Hrmf...

Thanks anyway I guess.

Try installing Bluetooth 370 for W7 64 bit edition that came out from the Alienware 15X models.

It worked for my 355 bluetooth with W7 32 bit. At last I have my old bluetooth working again.


Here's the link, hope it works: http://support.euro.dell.com/support...&fileid=339696
