If you have any problems connecting your Bluetooth device to your Dell computer, one of the first things you should troubleshoot is your Bluetooth driver. Because if the driver is outdated or faulty, it can directly affect the connection between your Bluetooth device and your Dell PC.
There are two ways to update your Dell Bluetooth driver:
Option 1 – Manually – You’ll need some computer skills and patience to update your Dell Bluetooth driver this way, because you need to find the exactly right driver online, download it and install it step by step.
Option 2 – Automatically (Recommended) – This is the quickest and easiest option. It’s all done with just a couple of mouse clicks – easy even if you’re a computer newbie.
To get the recent Bluetooth driver on your Dell PC, you can visit the manufacturer’s website of your Bluetooth device, or go to the Dell Support page. Be sure to choose the driver that’s compatible with your exact Bluetooth device model and your version of Windows.
Once you’ve downloaded the correct driver for your system, double-click on the downloaded file and follow the on-screen instructions to install the driver.
If you encounter any problem in the process, or if you’re not not confident playing around with drivers manually, you can then try Option 2 below.
If you don’t have the time, patience or computer skills to update your Dell Bluetooth driver manually, you can do it automatically with Driver Easy.
