    Don't know if it has been mentioned before, I just installed Windows 7 x64 on my Sony VAIO VGN-FW190E.

    You can find a proper working Broadcom Bluetooth driver here:
    http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/swu-download.pl?mdl=VGNFW590&upd_id=4871&os_id=49

    It is for VGN-FW590 but it will probably work for all older models since it seems to be unified.

    You can also find other drivers like this.

    Base system device is Ricoh Memory Stick -- you can use Vista 64-bit driver for that if you cannot find newer one for Windows 7.

    redius,

    Please don't hijack a thread that has nothing to do with the question you are asking. This thread is about a different model and different OS than your question. Find an appropriate thread or start a new one.

    Also are your shift keys and period key broken? A gigantic run on sentence like that is rather hard to read. I am pretty sure French uses punctuation too, non?
