Bluetooth Devices not showing up in Control Panel - no Bluetooth related services either
Posted on 2008-06-16
I have a customer with a Fujitsu Lifebook T Series laptop. He has bluetooth functionality but since a crash and reinstall it hasn't been working. I installed the drivers and am trying to use Microsoft ActiveSync 4.5 to sync it to his T-Mobile Dash PDA. While troubleshooting, I found there is no Bluetooth icon in the control panel and no services under services.msc related to bluetooth either.
I have reinstalled the drivers for the laptop (from the included disk) and no help. I also found a ms article telling me something about an incompatibility with a bluetooth mouse which I also have. Made a registry change but it didn't help...under hkey local machine/software/microsoft/windows nt/currentversion/svchost and added a multi-string bthsvcs
