    Can you grab a screen capture? Is this during installation of the Dell webpack or what?

    Hi folks,

    I've Dell XPS 16, I'm having the same problem.

    I tried to setup the bluetooth driver, it says activate bluetooth using wireless switch. I done that but no use.

    I tired nguyenxhoang but it says connect the correct device. Mine system is bought in India. Now I'm in UK.

    Any advices welcome.


    P.S. few days before I got a message like "Bluetooth stack COM server has stopped "

    I have a Dell Inspirion M5010. I have followed Oblivion426's instructions but am running into a problem

    When running the installer it asks for me to supply a DFU file so I use the DFU file that is found inside the same folder as the installer. But it says I have to connect the proper device for it to work

    Anyone had that issue that can help me?

    I'm having the same problem, the DFU mode program tells me that it's not for my Bluetooth or something..

    Is it possible that my R1 does not have Bluetooth at all? Was it an add-on option?

    The 2 indications I have that make me think my laptop does have bluetooth are

    01. It was enabled in BIOS
    02. The first time I got my laptop online Dell Support Center sent me a notification saying I needed to update my bluetooth drivers

    Well the 1 indication that will tell you for sure is the device manager. If bluetooth shows up there, or a device with a yellow "!" with the bluetooth ID, then you have it. If nothing shows up and all of your drivers are installed then it looks like you don't have it.

    If the FN+F3 wireless switch does not work and there is no bluetooth icon on the lower right corner where the applications run...

    1) check bios to make sure it's on

    2) uninstall the bluetooth driver and software (this may take out your wireless also so have the drivers handy )

    3) reboot (optional: disable bluetooth, reboot enable it)

    4) reinstall the driver software from dell.

    5) if the "activate with wireless switch" is not activating, cancel installation.

    6) go to c:/dell drivers and into the weird strand of numbers that is the dell folder containing the bluetooth driver. Go into the 64 (if you're six four) folder, run the installer, and load the .dfu file that is in the same folder of the installer when it asks you to.

    7) If that fails to detect the bluetooth, and device manager does not show a bluetooth device detected, then a fresh install of windows will fix it in most cases.

    This is assuming you have bluetooth installed and bluetooth has worked in the past.

    Okay i'm thinking my R1 (base model) just doesn't have bluetooth installed..

    If I want to add it in, is it a matter of replacing the Wifi card with say, an Intel card that has the BT module on the card as well?
