but the mouse still had problems. I can add it using the "Add a Bluetooth Device" at the system tray BT icon, and it gets added fine but if I turn the mouse off and then on , it doesn't reconnect. If I reboot Windows XP (SP3) and then turn the BT mouse on, it still doesn't connect. I have to go through the "Add a Bluetooth Device" to connect it.
I have another mouse, Trust Bluetooth Mouse (trust.com/20403) and "Add a Bluetooth Device" doesn't even add it, the cursor just keeps rolling until I have to cancel the Add operation so it may be the Lenovo's BT driver software causing all this stuff. But I don't know which other software is compatible.
Also, when I turn the BT Card off using the Fn+F5 , the Windows sounds twice which gives the impression that 2 seperate hardware is being turned off. When I press Fn+F5 again to turn on the BT Card, it sounds once, as expected.
Lastly, when I turn off and on the mouse, sometimes it manages to reconnect but that happens very rarely, 1 out of 20 times, I'd say.
Any comment is appreciated.
First, I removed the Bluetooth card which is BMDC-3 (FRU 39T0026) and installed BMDC200 (27R1880) which I detached from my R51. On R51 this BMDC200 was working super perfectly,picking up each and every mouse instantly. So I reckoned that it should perfect on X41 too. It came up as IBM Integrated bluetooth III on driver installation dialog and its drivers were installed flawlessly. However, no Bluetooth icon on the system tray came up so I have installed the bluetooth III software named as 'bthwxp1o.exe' (20MB) but the Bluetooth icon still didn't come up so I concluded that this card wouldn't work on X41 and I removed it and installed the BMDC-3 card again. It asked for drivers and I selected the drivers from the '52bm01ww.exe' (100MB) but no Bluetooth icon appeared on system tray. So I've installed all the software contained in 52bm01ww.exe. Nonetheless, I have not selected the unneeded Bluetooth services such as Bluetooth imaging, PIM synchronisation, Bluetooth serial port, etc. After the installation , the Bluetooth icon appeared on system tray and to my surprise, it started to function perfectly. I managed to connect the Trust Bluetooth Mouse , which previously didn't connect at all. And then I turned the mouse off and on, it reconnected again in a second. It's working like it was the year before.
