Having problems with your IBM ThinkPad T43 Notebook ?

Ibm t43 laptop's bluetooth cannot find devices

\015 So, i have an IBM T43 laptop, and in my toolbar i can see the little bluetooth symbol (although it's blue and red instead of the usual blue and white...) i've tried installing the driver from the lenovo site, and that doesn't help. if it makes a difference, i'm trying to make my computer connect to my K1m phone (which also has bluetooth built into it). i've done it on a friend's laptop before, so i'm pretty sure something is wrong with the bluetooth on my computer....\015

Answers :

This sounds like it is exactly what I scratched my head about when I first inhereted my T43 at work. If it is, you are going to laugh at how simple it issue is. IBM in their great wisdom made a custom control for the wireless network antenna and bluetooth antenna. Try:
\015\012Hit Fn+F5. This will bring up a window where you can control turning on/off each antenna. When you turn on the bluetooth, the symbol in the system tray should turn to blue and white and the little green bluetooth light just below the screen should come on. I hope this helps.
You do have BOTH the laptop and the device in discovery mode, dont you? Some devices have pairing passwords that must be entered in order to connect them. Phones must first have bluetooth turned on, then put in discovery mode. Phones typically ask you to set a password. Some devices such as ear buds have a password hardcoded in the device (usually 0000). Try that next. Finally, try uninstalling the bluetooth device on the laptop, then reinstalling it.
