Help! bluetooth card for T400.

#1 Post by trhbme1 » Thu Jul 19, 2012 5:30 pm

I install a brand new bluetooth card on my T400 but the bluetooth card was not even recognized as unknown device when power on. Info below:

- Model 2764-CTO
- The LCD cable underneath the LCD bevel already has the connector for bluetooth
- Bluetooth option in BIOS was ON

Is there any other option in the T400 I have to do to make the bluetooth card recognizeable? If not, it must be the card itself is dead on arrival. Bad ebay seller.

Much appreciate any help.

Thanks for the tips.

It does not work. As previously mentioned, the bluetooth card is not even recognized by Windows. It is like the card was not plugged in / connected at all.

I realize it isn't showing up in windows. You said that above, but it will not show up in windows until the hardware switch on the outside of the machine is on AND the radio is turned on by hitting Fn+F5
