Bluetooth and Sony Vaio Notebook


G

Guest

I just purchased a new notebook and cannot get the Bluetooth to find any of
my products. I am trying to connect a Sony Cybershot moblie phone and a Sony
wireless mouse, purchased specifically for the model notebook.

I have the Bluetooth indicator light on; I run diagnostics and it says
Bluetooth is working however the Find device fails on every try.

The Vaio site is hopeless, so I was hoping someone here may have encountered
and solved this problem. I am sure it is drivers SOMEWHERE in the system, but
I cannot find documentation regarding the problem.

Thanks in advance for any advice offered.

I had a probelm with a lenovo PC, and found that i wasnt doing it right.

Make sure the phone is looking for the laptop not the laptop for the phone.
this works every time for me, windows cant find my mouse though :( but im
guessing the phone is more vital like it was for me

What specifically are you doing? Are you putting your devices into
"discovery" or "find me" mode?

I have a Sony Vaio SZ440 and Bluetooth works fine with it -- I use a
Bluetooth phone, headset and mouse.

You don't have to do it that way and, in fact, there are some security
issues if you do. I think it's better to make the laptop "undiscoverable"
so that someone doesn't network with it without your knowledge.
