I have a IBM T42 with Win XP SP2. SC doesn't seem to recognize the built in bluetooth.

Greg,

Could you please let me know what Bluetooth stack is active your T42? You can usually find out by bringing up the settings panels for Bluetooth.

Also, and I apologize for asking, are you dead-sure Bluetooth is on? Did you try restarting?

Best.

I'm not sure how to tell this. The device properties says the driver is WIDCOMM.

Does Bluetooth work on your PC right now? For instance, can you send a vCard to your device?

I'd like to try and understand if this is a system-wide issue, or if there's something specific to Clicker.

Best.

Forgot to mention this. BT does work, I've been using a MS BT mouse with it for months.

Okay. Could you please open the Bluetooth settings on your PC? If it is indeed widcomm, there should be a green Bluetooth symbol in the system notification area (try). Once open, go to the last(?) tab where the version information is.

Also, please let me know if there's any detail in my description above that doesn't match what you're seeing. It'll be helpful.

Thanks for your patience.

Best.

No BT symbol in system tray. Maybe IBM has something different.

IBM has loads of custom stuff in their computers, but Bluetooth is not one of them. They use either Microsoft's Stack or the Wicomm (Broadcom) stack.

First, make shure you have Bluetooth and that it is actually set to ON.

Press Fn and F5 (Same combination as to turn on WiFi) and turn on Bluetooth in this menu, if it appears there.

Tittle iconic display beneath the display has a Bluetooth icon. If the Bluetooth B is visible in the plastic, your computer has Bluetooth. That B should light up in green color, when Bluetooth is on.
But there should also be an icon in the Taskbar.

If Bluetooth is being turned on for the first time, you will see loads of "Found new hardware" windows.

To start, you need to find Bluetooth settings in Control panel (If your computer is using the Microsoft stack) or My Bluetooth places on the desktop and pair your phone from there.

Just got an email from a Windows user with the same problem. He managed to get it to work, and here's what he had to say:

"Now it works. The problem is a ThinkPad problem. The bluetooth stack certified by Microsoft does not work. Using the not certified one helps. "

I'm not sure exactly what this means, though.

Best.
