Default Bluetooth?

On my Dell Studio 1558 I didn't think it came with bluetooth... anyway a quick look in the BIOS gives me the option to disable bluetooth?! There is no sign of it in windows thus leaving me very confused, I wouldn't mind being able to use it if it's there... Cheers.

Default Re: Bluetooth?

On Dell's they show the option in the bios because there is a dedicated slot on the mobo.

My Precision shows the same but there is indeed no bluetooth.

My Dell was like that, too.

Default Re: Bluetooth?

The only way to know for sure, check your owners manual or check your oder information directly from Dell. Just cause it is in the BIOS, doesnt mean that it is included.
