    I've recently purchased a acer e1 laptop using windows 8!!!... I have been trying to install a Bluetooth dongle using Broadcom drivers but every time I try to install the drivers it get so far and stops saying ' unable to start Bluetooth stack'... so frustrating!!!... I've tried going into services.msc and setting Bluetooth to automatic also it appears in device manager and says that the drivers are up to date.... confused some what... please help!!!!

    thank you for reply caperjack,

    no it doesn't have Bluetooth built in, I have contacted both Acer and Microsoft and neither seem to want to help.

    yes its a Aspire E1-571... I have tried both Broadcom and Atheroes, they both install but do nothing... I have spoken to a local computer specialist and he says there are no Bluetooth drivers out for windows 8.
