Dell Inspiron 15 3542 :: Activate Bluetooth Using Wireless Switch
Dec 21, 2014
I've got a DELL Inspiron 15 3542 . with Win7 64 bitsi downloaded all drivers from this sitewhen i try to install Bluetooth driver (Network_Driver_NT9P6_WN_184.108.40.206_A00) it shows an error message "Activate Bluetooth Using Wireless Switch" . i can't find a solution ....
I have this problem of wireless in my 15R 5537. I upgraded from windows 8 to 8.1 recently only to know that wireless driver was incompatible. I then visited the Dell support site and downloaded the wireless driver for the model i'm using and the OS installed. But when I tried to install it I got "Activate Bluetooth using wireless switch" error message.
I didn't know what wireless switch was since (fn+f2) was not working either. I came to know that there is wireless option in bios menu from various posts. But there was none in my laptop under "Advance" option in bios menu. I run bios version A08.
I tried to reinstall old windows 8(with a different CD this time) but wireless didn't work in this one either...
i have windows 7 64bit and can't get Bluetooth to find any device have updated driver and check every thing and it's still not work, when run dell diagnostic it's say all good but can't find my phone or any other device.
Bluetooth is not at all working on my dell inspiron 15 3000 series 3542 after i installed win 8. I downloaded several Bluetooth drivers from dell, but nothing seems to work. I Have a Bluetooth icon on my task bar but when i connect device it says"no device found."I have run many tests but no luck so provide me with correct Bluetooth software and installation instructions.

After deactivating bluetooth either with the wifi-switch or clicking the bluetooth icon, it cannot be activated again by either of this two functions.If the BIOS is set to switch bluetooth with the wifi-switch, I could not find a way to activate it again.If the BIOS is set to not switch bluetooth with the wifi-switch, after rebooting the pc bluetooth works again.In any case the bluetooth LED is always off.
I tried Dell online pc diagnostic. It downloads and starts "DellPCDiagnostics.exe", I can see it is running in task manager.But the web page complains: Diagnostic launcher was downloaded but could not be started ...
I loaded all available updates, without success.

I got HP Pavilion g6 series Notebook, and am trying to pair up with a bluetooth device.I can connect to the device via my iPhone alright.Problem is that I do not know if my laptop supports bluetooth,and if it does how to activate it.I went to Control PanelHardware and SoundDevices and Printers and tried add a device - no good. I tried searching it up in the networks - no good.
when i click on the wireless icon on the bottom right of my screen, it says WLAN is ON, but Bluetooth is Disabled,it says to turn it on i must do the following
"this device has been disabled in windows device manager, to enable this device, use windows device manager"
i went to the above devide manager, but cant find where the Bluetooth is! i dont have any idea how to enable it, how do i turn it on? has my new Laptop actually got Bluetooth installed so that i can send pictures from my Nokia Mobile Phone?
I am not able to activate my bluetooth device since i have upgraded my laptop to windows 8.1 from windows 8. I saw the video added by acer for this issue on acer's official site but the thing is I didn't find that option to turn on bluetooth on PC and Devices section from settings page.
I have two problems in my windows7, here is my computer description (windows7 home basic, intel core i5, model n5110)1- when i turn on/off my bluetooth or wireless adapter it used to hear a notification device sound like when you enter USB or connect mouse to your computer but now there is no sound, how can i turn on the bluetooth device sound on ?2- after i made dell factory image restore and made recovery media some times appear in my computer local disk with blue question mark and disappear, i did right click to my computer open disk management i found disk 0 basic 465.76 online health OEM partition what it is ?
I bought a DELL Inspiron 3542 4th generation recently. there is something wrong with the battery i charged it 100% i unplugged the charger after about an hour and a half the battery was 55% and suddenly it shows a message that my battery is only 7% remaining! I don't understand why that happened my laptop still has 105 days warranty.
I recently purchased Dell Inspiron 3542 (Nov14), and I'm getting a battery error when my house is a bit cold."Your battery is temporarily disabled. Please turn off your computer and try again when the unit is back to the operational temperature"...This message shows up at bios check and only option is for me to press f2 to enter bios, which doesn't give me any other option. This occurs very frequently, and I never saw such an issue with any other laptop I have owned.
To test, I removed the battery and ran the PC plugged in -- and it worked just fine. Is there a way to prevent this message from showing up and allowing me to use the laptop?
I want to install a program that automatically installs the drivers from the dell website. I thought that Dell Update was such program, but it doesn't work. There are drivers that need updating since I installed them on the 19.12.2014 from the dell website, but the program says "Your system is up to date", even after manual scan. What's strange is that the latest Dell Update version on the website is 1.3, but the program updates itself to 1.4.
I bought an Inspiron 15 3542 laptop and it works fine; the Power button has an LED which never lights up; also, the system LED at the right bottom (front of the laptop), does not light up all the time. It only lights up in white when I start the laptop from sleep or shutdown. Is this a design flaw or is something wrong with the laptop? I have never seen the Power button LED light up, which is annoying since the keyboard area is always dark without any lights; I have a HP Pavilion which has many blue LEDs on the surface and front of the laptop, so I find it weird not to have any lights on the Dell.
I just purchased a new Dell inspiron 3542. it came with a preinstalled Ubuntu. touch pad was working fine. I deleted Ubuntu and installed Windows 8. Now touch pad is not working and Wifi adapter is also not working. I swear its only 7 hours when i purchased this laptop. and facing these issues.
I also tried the drivers from dell website. downloaded and installed. my win8 is 64 bits.
How to resolve it. is this issue is under warranty?
I just run diagnosis in my laptop and got the following error.
Error code 2000-0142 Validation 55896 Hard Drive 0-S/N WD-WXH1A8148175 Status=7 PSA pre-boot system assessement Hard drive: 0-DST short test Test results: fail Error code : 2000-0142 Validation : 55896 Msg: hard Drive 0-S/N WD-WXH1a8148175
Once I turn off the wireless switch, I can't seem to turn wireless capability back on without rebooting the machine. The wifi LED remains unlighted and 'diagnose and repair' attempts do not work (telling me to turn wireless capability on by flicking the switch, which is already in the ON position).
Has anyone else faced this issue?

I have some problems with a new Dell laptop (bought a few weeks ago). The model is Dell 15.6'' Inspiron 3542. I've searched on google and on other forums but i didn't found something useful for my problem.
The problem is that when i turn on the laptop, running only on battery, after starting the windows, it freezes. If i turn on the laptop, with the AC adaptor plugged in, it works perfectly. But if i remove the AC adaptor, the laptop freezes after a while. If i turn off the laptop without the AC adaptor plugged in, the screen goes black but the laptop dosen't shut down completly, it freezes. And every time it freezes, the only way to shut down the laptop is to press for 5 sec the start button. I can use the laptop on battery mode, only on "Safe Mode" option of Windows.
I'm using Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bits, and i installed all the drivers from Dell support site.
i have been having an issue that has me perplexed, i recently did a clean install to windows 64 bit, and now i cannot seem to get the intel wirless client to work, it will only let me use the windows wireless client. I downloaded the latest drivers and utilities and software, both from the intel website and the dell site, installed both, but does not allow me to use the intel wireless client. what I am not doing correctly to activate the intel wireless client.
I opened my Vostro 1400 some time ago to clean it out, and put it back together again carefully. I also reformatted it recently.
Ever since, the wireless switch at the front doesn't seem to do anything when I press it all the way to the right. Before, it would show all wireless APs in the area, and their signal strengths, on the screen.
