Hcl Me U3 tablet says file sharing with Bluetooth but don't know how to turn on the bluetooth ?

Q: Hcl Me U3 tablet says file sharing with Bluetooth but don't know how to turn on the bluetooth ?

Hi
One of my friend in India purchased "HCL ME Sync 1.0 (U3) Tablet (WiFi, 3G via Dongle) by HCL" online . It says in many places that it supports Bluetooth but when I saw this I couldn't find any option for the bluetooth and don't know how to turn it on. Is there any one who has purchased it and help me out to turn the bluetooth on or how can we transfer files with some other bluetooth device. Even I couldn't find much good information on internet.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Hcl Me U3 tablet says file sharing with Bluetooth but don't know how to turn on the bluetooth ?

I don't see it listed in the spec sheet, nor the user guide.

On both of my android 4.2 devices, Bluetooth is listed after Wi-fi in Settings. I would think it's the same w/ android 4.1. It's possible the tablet doesn't have bluetooth.

Hello -
Just bought a tablet and ashamedly did not think to ensure Bluetooth capability. Trying to get an external keyboard for it, but it's a 'limited edition' (lol) of a Coby Kyros and I have not been able to find an adapter to connect 'hard-line' external keyboard to tablet. Thus, I thought maybe I could somehow install Bluetooth on the tablet...impossible?

A:Adding Bluetooth to Tablet

There are small (smaller even than the small network devices) USB BT plug-ins that will work just like one that is built-in. If you get one small enough, it also is almost invisible so that it can stay plugged in all the time and not get broken off or damaged when transporting the laptop.

This tablet has only two USB ports, only one of which is "A" type. The tablet also has Bluetooth built in. So if I could find a mouse that would work with the tablet's inbuilt Bluetooth, that would free up my USB A terminal.

Is that possible? Is there a way to make that work? Are there mice that can do that?

I have an Irulu Walkenbook with Windows 10/32. Neat little tablet so far, but I purchased a blue tooth speaker that works fine our Ipods and Ipad. When I start to pair on the Irulu everything looks fine. I'm shown that I am connected and the speaker is listed in the blue tooth settings page and in the Device manager. I have tried up dating drivers, but pretty much all still show 2006 as the date.

Anyone have any ideas? They would surely be appreciated.

Hi,

I am really struggling with Bluetooth on Win7 x64 Ultimate on a laptop. I have a cheap CSR USB dongle which came with CSR 4.0 Bluetooth drivers. I did manage to get most of it working at one point but I always had a device manager error. I cannot use the supplied drivers as the install fails with an invalid call to some 32-bit dll.

If I just plug the device in it shows up in device manager as a CSR bluetooth device but nothing works and I don't get an icon in the system tray.

If I then go into device manager and change the driver to the Generic Bluetooth Adaptor I was largely able to get it working with a single Device Manager Error. I was able to pair with my Nokia X2-00, Advent Tegra note (Android 4.4), another phone and a car ODBC diagnostic dongle.

Months later (now) I decided to try the Toshiba Stack to see if it could clear the error. but I could not get it to work at all. I think I have fully uninstalled the drivers and cleared out all remaining entries in device manager.

I've reinstalled the Generic Bluetooth Adaptor but I can only get it to pair with my phone by repeatedly disconnecting the dongle. Once paired and while it is loading the drivers it disconnects and will not reconnect until I re-pair the devices. The Nokia icon in the Control Panel has a yellow exclamation mark. When I right-click on Nokia icon > Connect Using > Access Point I see the laptop on the phone until the laptop times out with a connection failed message. The laptop could not se... Read more

I would like to take my tablet off my account and just teather it through my phone when I need to use it (often).

However, it seems my issue is a Root trojan, and funds for repair are lacking . . => Moved, in car, no job, etc, yet.

I save $20 a month if I can manage this . . . I would even consider using a connect cable .. ??? . .

Phone is a 2015 DROID MAXX 24.21.7 Obake_maxx_ verizon

Tablet is Samsung Note Pro 12.2 . . . Hardware P905V .05 KERNEL 3.4.0

There is something about "enforcing" . . . I presume that is why it is locked off WiFi and Bluetooth . . .
But I would like to save mysel $140 over the next 6 months ... until I am working & settled ... so I wonder if I can hot spot it to my phone and use my too spendy unlimited data plan ???

It usually tethers through Bluetooth. . . So asking about a wire solution.

Hi guys,

I'm trying to figure out the best way to transfer all audio wirelessly (as if there was a cable connected to line out) and hook up a wireless mouse.

Seems like the cheapest way to do both things is through bluetooth. Price aside, I'm afraid streaming all audio from my computer via wifi would slow down my internet connection.

Problem is my computer (VAIO vpceb1m1e) doesn't have bluetooth. It has 4 USB ports. If possible I would like to use only one USB dongle (nano) for both things.

Is it even possible to use a same Bluetooth USB dongle for audio streaming and mouse control, both working fine?

Any system you recommend?

Thanks a lot

While it may be theoretically possible I think it would be so slow as to be useless. Blue tooth can transfer data up to 12 mb (bi-directionally) under ideal conditions.

Is there any other way you can do this?

A:Why sharing over bluetooth is so awful?

You do have the latest bluetooth drivers for your PC? Please update your system specs. Assuming you have, try:

Click Start

Type " services.msc " (without the quote marks) choose Services Local then scroll down the list until you see Bluetooth Support Service. Right click on it. Stop the process and start it again.

Hi Rhinny2012 Lots of us have or had this same problem. This IS a MS bug. Their is a work around that might fix it for you. Make sure its not is your device manager, then do these steps, and reboot. This works for me, and a few others.

Hi Friends,
I've a typical situation here:
1. A PC with Vista Ultimate installed and a Bluetooth dongle (Widcomm drivers) connected to a broadband internet via LAN card.
2. A laptop with Windows XP and bluetooth inbuilt.

Now I wish to share the internet connection of the desktop to the laptop over bluetooth. Is it possible?

One more issue I face in Vista is that when I try to enable the ICS for the internet connection, I get this error "An error occurred while Internet connection sharing was being enabled.
(null)" - Screen shot attached.

Can someone please help with this problem?

Thanks in advance!
 

A:Internet Sharing between PC & Laptop over Bluetooth

OK, here's another update:
I stumbled upon the Event viewer of the system and the log entry corresponding to the ICS error says:
"The ICS_IPV6 was unable to allocate  bytes of memory. This may indicate that the system is low on virtual memory, or that the memory manager has encountered an internal error."

Yes that special character is there before the word 'bytes'!

Now it seems the problem is with the IPv6. My ISP surely doesn't provide anything on IPv6. So can I somehow remove it completely? I've already unchecked it from my network properties, but no use!

second time: WiFi off / BT on

For months this has been driving me crazy. I get it to work and then it turns itself off for no apparent reason.

It actually downloaded and installed a driver (at least that's what the screen/progress bar showed). I tried updating the drivers for all other bluetooth devices and in every case it said that the most updated driver was installed. When I try to see the properties of the main Bluetooth device/header, there's nothing there. Of course, I ran the system update in the Lenovo Vantage app, and the Windows update.

RELEVANCY SCORE 69.6

I recently recovered my samsung ultrabook(NP530-U4C). Firstly, the bluetooth option was greyed... then when I installed "Intel Centrino Bluetooth driver"... Now Bluetooth is enabled but is unable to Turn-off the Bluetooth from the Wireless section of Windows 8.

When I tried to transfer the files via bluetooth, it shows device is offline although it was just paired.

Please help to resolve this issue!

A:Could not turn-off Bluetooth and Is not Working!

The Notebooks I have and have worked on with Bluetooth had it with the Wi-Fi adapter, turn that off [switch or key combination] and Bluetooth was also off.

Hallo,

I have searched endlessly on Google to try and find a solution to my problem, I hope I can find it here.

I cannot turn on Bluetooth on my Asus Notebook X551M (Windows 8 - 64 bit)

Apparently there is a button somewhere on the laptop where you can turn it on, I've looked and searched but cannot find it.

If I go to SETTINGS > CHANGE PC SETTINGS > WIRELESS then I can see several items such as BROADBAND, WI-FI and BLUETOOTH, but the bluetooth is just a solid grey, there is no way to turn it on. The broadband and wi-fi are turned on, but you cannot set the bluetooth to ON mode.

I re-installed new drivers (as recommended on the Asus official driver website, but nothing works.

Please help me to turn it back on!!

A:Cannot turn on Bluetooth on Windows 8

On most laptops now, there's a keyboard combo you press to turn these things on/off and that requires special software to be installed in order to properly interpret these signals. And are you absolutely positive that your specific model has BT built in? It doesn't say something like "BT Ready" which is marketing speak for "no BT on this model you cheap *******." If you go to the device manager, you see listings under Bluetooth?
