    Bluetooth already in computer???????


    Not sure where to put this but I have a Bluetooth question.
    My dad was the one who gave me the netbook and he says it can do Bluetooth devices. How do I verify it so I can use my Bluetooth mouse and keyboard and also headphones etc?

    I use Bluetooth devices on several Notebooks and Tablets and even my latest Desktop has it. Look in Device Manager and the Network Adapter section for it.

    Have you visited the support page for your netbook model? Make sure that it has the correct drivers installed for chipset (which affects physical connections via PCI and USB on the machine) and any Bluetooth or card reader drivers - the latter often are shown as unknown devices when no driver is installed.

    I should have further mentioned that on all my Notebooks the Wi-Fi Network Adapter includes the Bluetooth feature, turn the Wi-Fi off and the Bluetooth will also be off. But as mentioned, drivers are still needed.

    I am trying to figure out how to update the drivers for the netbook. Problem is that Asus's website only shows XP drivers and I have no way to my knowledge how to put XP back on my computer. It has 10 on it now.

    It would help if you told us exactly which make and model of computer it is. What you are basically giving us so far is "I have a car, does it have cruise control on it?"

    Right. Your My Computer shows an HP with 9GB RAM. There seldom are computers that use such odd numbers, usually will be 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, maybe 10, 12, 16, etc., multiples of 2 or 4 and a few other combination.

    I need to update that as that computer needs a new motherboard or something.
