Bluetooth Enable on Dell Inspiron 6400

April 14th, 2008 by steve

I bought a Dell bluetooth card for my Inspiron 6400 so I could sync my PDA with my Laptop. The card seemed to work well with Vista. However, my ipaq HX-4700 would not agree to perform a bluetooth sync, so I figured I wasted my money. When I upgraded the hard drive on the laptop, I noted the bluetooth did not work, but I really didn’t care — until I replaced my HX-4700 with a Samsung SCH-i760. Bluetooth sync was looking attractive again, but I couldn’t get that bluetooth card in my Inspiron to work. Although it was activated in the bios, it didn’t exist in the system configuration. And the blue light was out.

Googling led me to this site. The blogger there had the same problem I had, although it was for different reasons.

The driver needed is file R159805.EXE.

I downloaded the file he indicated and ran it. *ding* my bluetooth lit up. And the Samsung was able to sync without any difficulty.
