How do I enable bluetooth on my MSI CR600 laptop
« on: 02-November-12, 01:24:31 »

I'm trying to pair my laptop to a set of bluetooth speakers.

I've opened the bluetooth assistant.  I click on the ENABLE button and get this message: "Please plug in the bluetooth device and click OK button."

I'm confused because isn't the point of having a bluetooth device that you AREN'T plugging it in?  I have no trouble pairing my phone or bluetooth speakers to other devices but my laptop doesn't seem to want to do this the easy way. HELP!

SVET: thanks for the quick reply.  Just to be on the safe side and make sure I'm not just being a bonehead: What are the steps to activating the bluetooth?  I thought clicking the "enable" button was the trick, but perhaps I'm wrong.

Tried looking it up in the manual, all the manual says is that the light will turn blue when it's activated, doesn't say HOW to activate.  If I could figure this out on my own I wouldn't be asking on here.  I thought this was a help forum.

Hi there, had a similar issue with my CR700 when I bought it...   The tech spec said it came all blue tooth enabled so I spent many an unhappy hour trying to enable/disable and then re-loading drivers etc.... only to find out that it actually does not come all enabled and you have to use a blue tooth dongle. I contacted MSI who sent me one. It is a small USB device that once you stick it in a spare USB slot on your pc and then the drivers are loaded.... hey presto. My Blue Tooth enabled immediately. Hope this helps.

I think this is probably what I need as well.  I feel like I've tried everything else.  Thanks jerry, I'll give them a call.   :)
