Re: bluetooth driver not working in windows 8 in my n4010

Hi thamseer24,

Inspiron N4010 does not have drivers for Windows 8. I suggest you to install the Windows 7 driver in compatibility mode and check if it works. You can download the Bluetooth drivers from the following link:
http://dell.to/QRsOZ8

Please follow the steps provided below to install the driver using the compatibility mode:

1. Select the “Setup” file in file explorer and  click on Application, Troubleshoot Compatibility.
2. Click on “Troubleshoot program.”
3. Select the “The program worked in earlier versions of Windows but won't install or run now” option and click “Next”.
4. Select “Windows 7” on the next page and click “Next”.
5. Click on “Start the Program”, but do not hit “Next” until the install completes.
6. Click “Next” when the installation completes.

I hope this helps.

Thanks and Regards,

Re: bluetooth driver not working in windows 8 in my n4010

Hi forrow07,

Inspiron N4010 is not officially supported for Windows 8 upgrade. Hence drivers for Windows 8 are not available. You may consider reverting to Windows 7.

You may try updating the drivers via Windows Update to check if a new driver is available.

Try the following driver:

For systems with Dell Bluetooth 355, 360, 365, 370, 375 and 380. Use the Bluetooth 380 Driver here: http://ftp1.dell.com/folder00865420m/1/
 

There is also a Broadcom Bluetooth Update here: http://www.broadcom.com/support/bluetooth/update.php
