Greetings,

Since Asus's website really sucks, I have a question...how can you tell if bluetooth is installed on a computer? What paperwork came with my laptop says "optional". It is an Asus K53.

Thanks,
joe

Try clicking on the Network Tab, bottom left in the Speccy window.

Please Run the PCPitstop.com OverDrive Full Tests

Here's how:

You must use your Internet Explorer for this procedure. (doesn't work so well in Firefox or others). If your machine is running Vista or Windows 7, you must Select IE to “Run as Administrator”. After completing PCPitstop OverDrive you can close your IE browser and re-open it Normally so that you are no longer running as administrator.

Go to: http://www.pcpitstop...pit/default.asp
Click on "Free Computer Check-up" listed below PC Pitstop OverDrive
In the User Login - Click on "Sign up FREE!"
You'll need to submit a valid email address and create your own password, then click - Create Account(button)

Now enter your email address and password to Log in, Select - Scan this system Now!(button)
You will then be asked to download an ActiveX component and allow it to install.
It is safe and does not compromise your privacy.
Follow the on-screen prompts to install the ActiveX and to allow the Full Tests to be run on your machine.

The Full Tests take about 2 1/2 - 3 minutes on most machines.
When complete, a Results - Summary - Recommended Fixes will be displayed.

Please post the URL internet address, from your Results, back here into this Topic Thread so that we can review the configuration and present performance levels of your machine.

Note: During the graphics 2D and graphics 3D testing, your screen will display some rapidly moving objects.
If you are sensitive to visual flashing, it may cause dizziness. Therefore, look away from the screen during that portion of the testing.

After reviewing the results we will be more informed and may be able to provide better recommendations for you to work towards improving your machine's performance.

While PCPitstop does offer a variety of Paid Products, the PCPitstop OverDrive testing is FREE. Please ignore the references to Paid Products. We prefer to provide manual solution instructions that you can apply directly to your machine.

Thanks to rshaffer61 for the PCPitstop instructions :thumbsup:

Sorry, phillpower2.

That is the only url that shows up. I right-clicked on the url shown in the IE bar, far left, clicked copy, went to geestogo page, clicked paste.

Not sure why you are having problems with the URL so we may need to use another software, first of all though regarding Speccy I suggested back in my reply #4

Try clicking on the Network Tab, bottom left in the Speccy window.

Did you try this, if not please do so and let us know what is shown.

As you can see there is no Bluetooth device showing, as a double check please run SIW (no installation required) and see what is reported http://www.gtopala.com/
