i've got a dell d610 that has the bluetooth logo next to the wifi logo.
 It also has a bluetooth option in the bios but says "<none
installed>".  Is there something i can buy that will fit inside the
dell to give me bluetooth as it would be from the factory?  I realize i
can just get a pc-card with bluetooth but i'm looking for somthing as i
would receive it from the factory, had i ordered the bluetooth option.

Re: bluetooth for d610 laptop

you can order the module from Dell is you don't have one

Turn the notebook over and remove the battery.  Inside the battery
compartment (in the front corner) there's a "trap door" that flips down.
Push down on the latch and flip the door down.  If you have Bluetooth, the
BT module is snapped onto the backside of the door, with the wires connected
to it on one end.

If you have a module, then power the machine on, go into BIOS (hit F2 during
the Dell logo screen), and then scroll down to Device Info.  In the
right-hand pane it should say, "Bluetooth Device = Installed".  Hit Esc,
then Exit to restart.

Also make sure the radio is turned on by toggling Func+F2 while in Windows.
You should see the blue Bluetooth logo LED on the "dashboard" next to the
power button turn on and off.  If your speakers are on you should get an
audible signal as well, plus the oversized wireless icon on the lower
right-hand corner of the screen (if you have QuickSet running).
