    Default Bluetooth...errr...how do I turn it on...?

    I have an SZ3 Premium. I remember turning the Bluetooth off a while ago in an effort to save battery power. Now I need to use it but I can't figure out how to turn it on! I go to Bluetooth in the Start menu, but when I try to make a new connection it says 'Bluetooth not ready'. I assume that's because it's not on. What do I do?

    Try to enable it using device manager.

    OK, that's weird. It's not in Device Manager. I've looked at every item and I cannot see Bluetooth mentioned anywhere. Does it go by a different name?

    This is what mine looks like. And are you sure you have bluetooth installed? Did you ever formatted?

    That's definitely not on mine! And I have not formatted or anything. Only had the laptop a couple of months!! Is there a driver somewhere I can download and install to get it up and running again?

    It should be at Sony's support website.

    Have you tried Vaio Central? There you have Wireless Switch Settings under the Network Connections subsection where you could turn on/off both wifi and bluetooth.

    Do have you switched wireless on "on" it's next to the power button.

    Wireless switch is on. That's working ok.

    What is 'Vaio Central'?

    It is a Sony software with which you can control various part of your computer, including Bluetooth. Go to Start/Programs, you should see it there.
