Re: x220 i bought a bluetooth 4.0 daughter card. while installing software update 'no bluetooth device was detected' err

Bluetooth is disabled by default. You can activate Bluetooth by pressing Fn + F5. Pressing FN+F5 will bring up an onscreen menu and you can activate Bluetooth there. If you want your laptop to be seen by other devices you can set it to searchable thru Control Panel.

Re: What to do if Computrace is activated in your TP BIOS

Re: What to do if Computrace is activated in your TP BIOS

Just completed a call to Computrace to deactivate the service on a laptop I own. Very easy phone call, request a ticket# for follow up. The service rep welcomed questions I had about the service. Typically expect 2-3 days for the original owner to drop the device from their account. Worst case scena...
