    Satellite P855-30G

    I have been going half mad over the last three days trying to get the bluetooth function to work on this laptop.

    I have a Logitech Mini Boombox (wireless bluetooth speaker) which I had working perfectly on my previous Toshiba laptop (A500)

    I absolutely cannot get it to connect. When I download the Toshiba bluetooth stack it stalls at install (about 10 per cent) and I have waited and waited, it will not install. I press cancel and it tells me it is installed, but it is not! Does any one have a clue as to what might be happening????

    Generally speaking the principle should be the same as on your old notebook.
    Before you want to use BT you must enable BT module using FN+F8 key combination.
    After doing this BT stack schould be installed properly.

    What happen when you use FN+F8 key combination?

    Hi

    The FN button functionality is a little bit different for Sat P855 series
    You can enable the WLan and BT by pressing the *Fn + F12*
    So ensure that the BT has been enabled using the right FN combination!

    > ..but is not available as a choice in Playback devices.

    In playback tab click right and check the options: “show hidden devices” and “show disabled devices”

    Maybe you have to pair this Bluetooth speakers firstly before checking the playback tab

    I have done this. The speakers are paired and showing in devices, but not showing in playback devices.
