Lenovo 3000 G430 - Bluetooth and Wi-Fi

  1. I'm using a laptop which the brand is Lenovo 3000 G430. just want to know whether this laptop had provided a Bluetooth and Wi-fi or not. I noticed somewhere in the system that this laptop has a Bluetooth application embedded into it. and sadly, I couldn't use it. I don't know if I'm mistaken about it or the drivers for Bluetooth and Wi-fi had gone missing.

    can someone help me to fix my problem? your help is kindly appreciated :)

    Just read the user guide and my laptop supposedly have a Bluetooth and Wi-fi but it doesn't work. tried to re-install both drivers and the installation failed. nothing happened.

    what happened to my laptop actually? do I need to get a new Wi-fi card or something? how should I fix this?

    It is embedded, search for device manager and look under network adapters and tell me what is listed under that.

    that's the wired NIC
    and this is your WiFi.
    on the WiFi adapter (with a wired connection to the Internet), dbl-click on the device and UPDATE driver

    Let's assume Bluetooth is there and active - - what BT devices do you have and what happens when you use the device to find the PC?
