    I have a Dell Inspiron E1405 laptop. When I bought it, it had vista. Now I have formatted and installed xp. I got all the drivers working except bluetooth. I tried all the drivers on the dell cite, but none work. One of them comes up with a message that says "press fn + f2 to activate radio on/off" I tried this and it does nothing. It stays at that screen for ever. All the other drivers say no compatable bluetooth devices found. Any idea how to get the bluetooth drivers installed on a Dell Inspiron E1405 running windows xp?

    Unfortunately, laptops that come with Vista often use OEM hardware for which XP drivers were never made. My best advice is to try and find one on http://www.driverguide.com
    If you can't find it there, you'll have to either live without, or put Vista back.
