RE: Bluetooth Is Not Working in Inspiron N5050


You first may want to start the computer and tap the F2 key to enter the bios. Once in the bios you will need to verify that the Bluetooth is enabled.

On the Inspiron N5050, use the Fn + F2 key to turn wireless/bluetooth On or Off. Use Windows Mobility Center in the control panel to check the status of the wireless connection.

If this still does not resolve the issue you can run the epsa diags on the computer by starting the computer and pressing the F12 Key and choose; diagnostics.

  • The ePSA starts running the quick test without waiting for user input.
  • To select a specific device to test, users can tap the Esc key.
 NOTE: The Touchpad/Mouse will be non–functional when the test is in progress. This is as per design. Users can choose between Quick and Thorough test modes.

If the diags show the Bluetooth to be working in the system you may need to format and reinstall Windows.
