I am using an ASUS Pro59L Notebook, Vista 32bit. I rarely use the bluetooth function but have sucessfully in the past to transfer files between a mobile phone and my laptop. It has an inbuilt wireless adapter. Today I went to use it for the first time in months and I could not get my phone to pickup the laptop. I went to Control Panel/Hardware and Sound/Bluetooth Devices and tried to open Bluetooth settings but it would not open. I then went to Control Panel/Hardware and Sound/Device Manager and looked for a bluetooth device but there is nothing there.
Next step was ASUS website where I downloaded the bluetooth driver Version V5.2.800. When I tried to install it it came up with this message:
No bluetooth device was detected. Please make sure that your bluetooth device is plugged in properly in order to continue installation.
Yes, well I knew that! So I guess a driver is not what I need; I need to get the device back.
Any help greatly appreciated thanks.
