    too simple, search for the drivers on the net (eg. driverguide.com)

    if u r using windows xp with service pack 2 installed, u dont need additional bluetooth drivers coz bluetooth is natively supported in sp2.
    but can u let us know what make ur bluetooth device is(ie WIDCOMM, TDKsystems) and also its model number(if any)?

    It's a WIDCOMM Device but the device does not have any name or model number written on it. My software C.D. Had Widcomm Software on it

    well xenkatesh urs is 103*95
    so i suggest u resize urs before tellin others

    @shriekers and @akshayc ... widcomm does not give out drivers to end users. therefore finding them at something like driversguide.com MAY not work

    so ur best bet is to download it from a company site like IBM
    unfortunately u will not be able to use these without "patching" them fpr ur NON *company* (*IBM*) product

    BUT FEAR NOT !!!

    read the following and have fun ;)
    heres is where u can download the driers for IBM
    Code:
    http://support.fujitsu-siemens.de/KnowHow/Accessories/Start_GB_Accessories.htm?uri=/DriverCD/Accessories/_DriverSteuerung/GB/Accessories_Bluetooth.htm&menu=/DriverCD/../KnowHow/Accessories/_1st_Start/GB/MenuListe_Accessories.htm
    ftp://ftp.software.ibm.com/pc/pccbbs/mobiles/bthwxp1o.exe
    http://www-900.ibm.com/cn/support/download/attachment/JWAG-5LWBJS/bthwxp1o.exe
    http://mirrors.phorever.com/jonscaife/bthwxp1o.zip
    http://jonscaife.servebeer.com/public/Downloads/bthwxp1o.exe
    now lemme make it tough to easy for u ... it might just be fun ;)
    if u love to mess ard and use hex editors do this
    Code:
    find
    3B F5 75 0E 3B FD 75 0A
    and replace it with
    3B F5 90 90 3B FD 90 90
    
    
    find
    83 C4 04 85 F6 0F 85 1F 01 00 00
    and replace it with
    83 C4 04 85 F6 90 90 90 90 90 90
    SOURCE : http://www.jonsguides.com/ but it no longer exists as its been removed due to broadcom

    or u can download the patch from
    Code:
    http://www.jonsguides.com/bt/btpatch.exe
    or smpler enuff u can download the patched files from
    Code:
    http://jonscaife.servebeer.com/public/Downloads/btfiles.exe
    http://www.jonscaife.com/creation/btfiles.exe
    http://mirrors.phorever.com/jonscaife/btfiles.zip
    http://www.jonscaife.com/create/btfiles.exe
    im sorry i didnt have the time to check the links for u ... but i think the quantity ive given should suffice ;)
    enjoy!

    oooo and sreevirus is right ... u CAN use the drivers from SP2
    but these widcomm drivers are said to be better ... even tho they dont have their WHQL certification .. thats the only problem

    well, if u r willing to experiment, u can try the bluetooth stack drivers form TDK....
    http://www.tdksystems.com/download/bt/bluetoothstack.zip
    i too have a widcomm dongle and got a mini cd with it...i havent tried the tdk software yet, but will sometime...and if u r going to install it, be sure to create a system restore point in case something gets screwed up.
    @raven..man none of those links r workin :(

    sorry, i wasnt able to find any links for the widcomm suite...looks like broadcom has discontinued support for widcomm devices

    http://www-900.ibm.com/cn/support/download/attachment/JWAG-5LWBJS/bthwxp1o.exe
