Can't turn on my bluetooth (sony vaio) :(
Posted 28 November 2009 - 07:10 PM
I have a Sony Vaio laptop VPCCW17FX, which should have bluetooth adapter embedded. However, I can't find any way of turning it on. I've looked in Network Connections, been to the Sony support page and downloaded the driver. I've also tried googling, but the solutions are for other models of laptops and refer to folders/procedures that are not on this laptop. Can anyone help with this please!

have you checked if there may be a button on your laptop itself to turn on bluetooth ? That's always possible.
If not, try the following:
Start > type: "LANUTIL.EXE" (without quotes) > the LANutil should start (or in your icon tray, right down below) > activate Bluetooth (should be a green square when activated)

Go into Device Manager and make sure that your laptop does in fact have this. If it does, it will show there. Try updating the driver when you find the device. If this doesn't work, uninstall the hardware then search for new hardware after the uninstall is complete. This will re-install the hardware and hopefully fix the problem. Keep us posted.
I looked for the word "bluetooth" but didn't see it on the list... is there maybe another name I should be looking for? And say I don't have it... how would I go about getting it? Would I have to download/buy it?
I tried the lanutil.exe but there doesn't seem to be one on this laptop.. and there is no button for bluetooth either, just for wireless (wifi?)..
