✔ Best Answer
Your PC needs to have bluetooth hardware (a bluetooth adapter). You can't add bluetooth just by installing software.

If it's not a laptop it's unlikely to have a bluetooth adapter installed, but you can check in Device Manager. If it has bluetooth it will be listed under "Network Adapters".

If it doesn't have bluetooth, you can either install a bluetooth PCI card in a spare PCI slot, or you can buy a bluetooth USB adapter which just plugs in to a USB port.

1. how to know if my computer have a bluetooth?
where i need to go to check if my computer have bluetooth

Look in device manger.

2. if my computer have bluetooth what i need to do to work the bluetooth in my computer

Read the instructions that came with the device. Bluetooth devices need to be "introduced" to each other. How you do that depends on the device.

3. if my computer don't have a bluetooth i just want to know if any free software in the internet.

Bluetooth is a hardware solution, not just software. First you need a Bluetooth device in your computer. The device will come with the software drivers you need.

If dont you have Bluetooth you need to get a Bluetooth dongle that plugs into a USB port.

Windows cannot find any Bluetooth devices

As you have been told, Bluetooth requires hardware, not just software. If you don't install the hardware, all the software in the world is not going to help you. Bluetooth is not standard in desktops, you need to install it.

"Windows cannot find any Bluetooth devices"

That should need no further explanation, it's as clear as crystal.

Please read carefully if you didn't understand my first reply:

Your computer does not have a bluetooth adapter installed.
A bluetooth adapter is a hardware device, not software.

You need to buy a bluetooth adapter from a computer store or online from somewhere like Amazon.

A bluetooth adapter for a desktop PC can be either an internal add-on PCI card, or an external USB bluetooth adapter.

If, as I suspect, you don't know your way around the inside of a computer, you should buy an external USB bluetooth adapter, then you won't have to open the PC case.

You could save yourself a lot of hassle by connecting your phone to your PC with a USB cable like I do with my BlackBerry handset.
Then I just open the BlackBerry drive-letter in Windows & drag the files I want to my pictures or music folder.

Or, if your phone has a memory card for storing pictures & videos, remove the card, buy a card reader for your PC, then push the memory card into the reader. You don't need bluetooth for that.

Wait, if your pictures are on a micro SD card in your phone what does your computer have to do with it? Just take your phone to the photo shop and transfer via your phone's bluetooth, assuming it has that capability.

Or if you do want to use your computer use a USB card reader and copy the pics off or email them from your phone and then burn them to a cd. Then take the cd to the photo shop. You don't need a computer with bluetooth.

Or find a different shop that doesn't make things so difficult.

ah ok guys i i understand now thanks
@DAVEINCAPS yes my phone have micro SD card but like before if you know i post my problem about my folder changed to file type before i use card reader to transfer my photos to my computer so this is the reason why i scared now using card reader and last thing i need always to put out my memory card to my phone to connect to my card reader. and in bluetooth the good one is you need only to send the files just open or on your bluetooth and i see only this video in youtube:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jjOB...
the title and description of video is "how to find bluetooth in windows xp".. and i follow step by step the video and i found the "fsquirt" so that the reason why i assuming my computer have bluetooth lol but i think that video is only a big joke because not working to me anyway i don't find bluetooth in my device manager so i don't have bluetooth anyway thanks again for your reply guys
last guys what this fsquirt << anyone know about that? if you see that and you open that you will see the name of software is bluetooth file transfer wizard << but not working in my side to send file so that is useless anyway thanks again for reply guys

Oh you were the one with corrupted files on the card. I understand your hesitation when using the reader. I don't really trust them either. Whenever I use the card reader I plug the card in when the PC is off and leave it in until I turn if off.

You can always email them but unless your phone is different than mine, you can only email one file at a time, which can take forever if there's a lot of them.
