T61 Bluetooth peripheral device driver not found. Help!

#1 Post by hamoudi » Fri Nov 30, 2007 10:49 pm

i just received my T61(16U-Vista Business) a week ago and everything was working perfectly until i decided to do the system recovery thing. now Im not able to use Bluetooth as before although its recognising my mobile but its failing to connect and recieve files.
when lookin into the Device Manager i found that the Bluetooth Peripheral Device's driver isnt found... tried to uninstall and reinstall, it didnt work....tried system update...nothing worked.

I wonder if this is a common problem with T61?
would be thankfull for any contribution in here :(

Please make sure you're turning on the device via Fn+F5:

In addition, see the following troubleshooting document from lenovo:

Troubleshooting Bluetooth issues - ThinkPad.

Please also see the following thread:

T60 Bluetooth can't find Nokia N95 mobile phone. SOLVED!!!!!.

The package corresponding to your machine as mentioned in the thread is as following:

thanks for ur contribution.

ive installed the BT drives many times and nothing happened.
BT troubleshoot doesnt address the prob im having.

my T61 is seeing my mobile and is connecting with it, but when it comes to sending files from mobile to laptop i get this sending failed errror... although before system recovery i had no probs at all.

Ok, I just set bluetooth on my thinkpad with Windows Vista and experienced somewhat similar issue, apparently my cellphone was successfully receiving the files but failed to send them.

All I did was:

In the Control Panel (in Windows) > Network and Internet > Bluetooth Devices > Change Settings for a Bluetooth enabled device, I enabled few settings here and there and my thinkpad started to receive files again.

Go through tabs like "Share", "PIM interface" and "Options" you'll find many check boxes there.
