Finding the Bluetooth®drivers
If you want to use a Bluetooth® enabled mouse instead of a touchpad, read the information on the packaging first to see if the Bluetooth® connection is compatible to the device you are using. Some brands of mouse or any other accessories could be only compatible with products of the same brand. Check if the device has an installation disk. Most of the time, the disk contains the drivers for the Acer Aspire®. You can also use automatic updates if the operating system you are using offers an automatic update of the system software and device drivers. You can check the Internet manually by going to the manufacturer’s website. Once you have found the drivers, you are ready to install them.
Installing the Bluetooth®drivers
In installing the drivers for the Bluetooth® device, you can go to the device manager of your Acer Aspire®. Right click on the Bluetooth® device and choose update drivers. This will scan and find the drivers you need. You can also choose to install from a disk. Once you have selected the disk, start the installation. The next thing is to use the software update from your OS. This is the easiest one since all you have to do is to install, it together with other updates. After you have installed, the Acer Aspire® will restart and when it gets back on, your Bluetooth® enabled device would have the drivers it need to function.
You need to check if the drivers that you use are signed or certified for the OS you are using. This would also mean that if the Bluetooth® driver is signed, it is compatible for your system and you can use it with no problems. If you have used a driver that is not compatible, it could result to a device malfunction and you may get an error with your device. Remember to choose reliable and certified drivers only.
