why my laptop bluetooth is not working

Make sure the device and your computer are the correct distance apart. The device information should include the correct distance. The device might be too busy or have too many connections (for example, other devices might be connected to a Bluetooth enabled printer). Wait until the device is less busy, and then try again. Or, to reduce the number of connections, set the other devices so that they are not discoverable. If you're not sure how to turn off discoverability, check the information that came with the device or go to the manufacturer's website. Make sure that your computer is trying to connect to the correct device. For example, you might have two Bluetooth enabled printers connected to your computer: one in your office and one in a co-worker's office. Make sure the name and serial number shown in the Add Bluetooth Device Wizard match the name and serial number of the device by right-clicking the device icon in the wizard. Have you exchanged passkeys with the device? Some devices require a passkey before they can be listed in Bluetooth Devices in Control Panel.


Maybe you typed an incorrect passkey, or the time limit expired for typing the passkey. Make sure Windows is configured to accept incoming Bluetooth connections. To do so, if you have Bluetooth wireless technology installed on your computer, you can check Control Panel for Bluetooth enabled devices. Here's how:
If the device is close to other devices that use radio frequencies (such as microwave ovens, cordless phones, remote controls for electronics or lighting, or 802. 11 wireless networks), those devices might be creating interference. Try moving the device that isn't working farther away from the other devices. Hi The Bee, I am glad to know the issue has been fixed. Surely I will try to help you with the overheating problem as well. You can follow the below mentioned steps to keep your laptop cool: 1. It is recommended to use the Laptop in a Room temperature of 0`C to 35`C (32`F to 95`F) with a Humidity level no greater than 90%. 2. Use compressed air to clean the vents on a regular basis.


You don't need to open the chassis to clean the vents. Sometimes the accumulated dust is not visible by simply looking at the vents. To properly clean the vents: a. Power off the System b. Unplug the AC Adapter c. Remove the Battery d. Use `Compressed Air Can' to blow the dust out of the vents. Do not use your mouth to blow the dust out of a Laptop. Use the `can' according to the directions on the side of the `can' as you can cause damage to the computer if used incorrectly. 3. Outdated BIOS can cause heat issues by having an outdated temperature table for the system. Click to download the most updated BIOS for your Dell Inspiron 3520 System. Note: Plug your computer to a good, working UPS before you update the BIOS. If you experience a loss of AC power or a significant voltage sag/spike during the BIOS flash, you will either have to buy a new BIOS chip or buy a new motherboard. Do reply with results.
