T43 bluetooth problem

#1 Post by sdmichael » Sat Jan 12, 2019 10:22 pm

I have recently acquired a T43 and am down to the last driver/hardware problem. It presently has Windows XP installed. Basically, the bluetooth activates and lights up the indicator light. It doesn't show up anywhere in XP though. There is no bluetooth devices icon in Control Panel nor any sort of bluetooth device listed in the "services.msc" program. It does show up in the hardware, so maybe just a driver issue?

It seems like it is missing the Bluetooth utility program, as far as I know. The driver alone, is not enough for the Bluetooth adapter to function normally.

Try installing the utility, see if that works.

Thanks! I wouldn't have thought to install that. I installed the drivers fine before, but not the utility.
