    Re: Bluetooth not working in Macbook

    It looks like your Macbook doesn’t have the bluetooth hardware installed and that’s the reason you are not able to access it. Just go to the preferences option and check if the bluetooth device is listed if not then you can be sure that it’s not present.

    Also check from the About this Mac option if it says “no information found” for bluetooth then again it’s sure there is no bluetooth is present. So now all you need to do is to buy a good bluetooth USB dongle and fix it to your Mac to get it work.

    The bluetooth icon which you are seeing in the top of Menu bar is jus the bluetooth application which is installed in your Macbook and it will be useful only if you have the required bluetooth hardware. When you get the bluetooth USB dongle make sure that you have the right drivers for it to install in your Macbook.
