Re: Bluetooth Driver Windows 8 (Latitude E5400)

Hi Mittrayash

Windows 8 drivers for this are not available as this system has not been tested with Windows 8. You may refer to the link on Dell Computer Support for Windows 8 Upgrade http://dell.to/RnDAFu 

Please share the exact model no. of the bluetooth card shipped with your system. I will try to find the driver and provide you with an workaround which might be helpful.

Please reply if you have any questions.

Thanks & Regards,
Appu S

Re: Bluetooth Driver Windows 8 (Latitude E5400)

Hi Mittrayash,

You may try the following steps and see it it works:

  • Find the bluetooth icon in your system tray (it may be hidden; if so click the little up arrow to the left of the tray items and you'll be presented with all items in the tray.) 
  • Right-click on the bluetooth icon and select "Receive a File". 
  • A dialog will appear that states it's "waiting for a connection".

If the above steps do not work, try to disable the firewall of the computer and check.

Please reply if you have any questions.
