Hi asiongmovie.


Here is an explanation of what Bluetooth technology is, >http://www.bbc.co.uk...about-bluetooth

So you now know that it is not a part of software in the operating system but is a hardware device, (a chip). It sounds as though your computer is quite old so I do not think it will have Bluetooth as part of the hardware.
Please let us know what computer you have, a shop purchased one like, Dell? HP? we need the Brand and Model number.
Or is it a custom build?

Hope you don`t mind me popping a couple of pointers in here iammykyl :D

Hello asiongmovie

As iammykyl has pointed out your computer may not have onboard Bluetooth but there are cards available that you can fit yourself + there are also USB port Bluetooth devices available, please see the examples of each type at the links;
