Bluetooth not working X220T

#1 Post by brucehe » Fri Jun 15, 2018 12:41 pm

I have a X220T and the Bluetooth card is not recognized. I tried another card that works in a X230T and it also does not work however the card from the X220T does work in the X230T.

The Lenovo driver does not see the card. I also cannot see any reference in the BIOS to a Bluetooth card.

Also checked the fuse next to the BT connector, was good.

Any ideas of what might be going on?

Thanks,

Bruce

Is BT active?
In Windows press Fn/F5 to switch BT on/off.

In BIOS under Security, I/O Ports look for Bluetooth there.

That was it, hidden in the BIOS menu!

Thanks a bunch!!

No prob. Once acquired a T410 with BT and the FPR disabled there. I imagine an admin may want them disabled for security purposes.
