Inspiron n5110 bluetooth problem

This question has suggested answer(s)

Recently I got my new inspiron n5110. after i had installed OS, i installed drivers, with bluetooth driver amongst them. I managed to make everything work just fine, except bluetooth radio. I downloaded original driver from Dell support page and installed it, but device manager shows "Generic bluetooth device" with a little yellow exclamation mark. when i go to the properties of the device, it says "Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43)". i tried a lots of things but none worked. then finally i tried to uninstall driver, and found out that uninstaller throws error: "There is a problem with this Windows Installer package. A program run as part of the setup did not finish as expected. Contact your support personnel or package vendor." i'm running win7 enterprise x64

any ideas? ty :)

  • i have the same problem, i used to have dell N5010 and never had a bluetooth problem, now i have N5110 core i7 and i have a problem with the bluetooth device, i have downloaded the orginal driver from Dell drivers & support using my own service tag, the installation told my to activate my bluetooth using wireless button which is (Fn+F2) but nothing happened and then installation didnt complete as intended, i tried many web sites looking for solutions, i found a bluesoil software which was sucssefully installed but when i tried to run bluetooth it gave me a message ( Can not start the bluetooth device please try again ), this problem is making me feel bad about the whole Laptop, bluetooth is one of the most important things i need ................. please any one help me  plz plz plz 

  • It is annoying Bluetooth driver problem, bluetooth drivers from Dell site don't seem to work. I solved it recently, you need correct driver. Inspiron n5110 has Atheros wireless and bluetooth chipset. Download drivers from www.atheros.cz/atheros-wireless-download.php and install Bluetooth Suite. That worked for me.

  • followingsun,

     

    Before connecting and pairing, please download the latest Bluetooth drivers from Dell Drivers & Downloads enter your service tag number, then select your operating system. The Bluetooth drivers can be found under Networking

     

    Places to look to see if your Bluetooth Connection is enabled

  • I downloaded the original Bluetooth drivers and tried to install them. During installation, it said 'Activate the Bluetooth' I turned off&on with the function key for connections and did nothing. I installed the WIDCOMM application in the folder of the driver with same result: Impossible to activate BT. The wifi works with no problem.

    Could be provocated problem with QuickSet?

    I tried the BT in Ubuntu and works fine.

  • followingsun,

     

    Run an ipconfig /all log and post it back here.
