But I have a Dell running Windows XP, Vista and 7 at the office (we have hundreds) and not one needed blue tooth drivers when we plug in the usual 7 buck bluetooth adapter. My guess is that you installed incorrect or drivers that are borken.

The message is "Bluetooth Peripheral device unplugged".

An external device can be unplugged, but you say it's an internal device. An internal device can't be unplugged, unless the hardware is broken.

So if after installing the drivers with this error message, the internal Bluetooth doesn't work as expected it's time to contact Dell tech support to see what they say. That could be anything, such as
- recommending other driver(s)
- having you run diagnostics on the hardware

The interesting questions you didn't answer in your first post:
- why did you install Bluetooth drivers - didn't they come installed with the machine?
- where did you get the drivers from?

No,actually if u buy a DELL INSPIRON N5030 or anr DELL INSPIRON Model they come with Windows7 OS installed in ur machine,but for that u need to pay Rs.2500 more for the OS.I didn't went with this option.Rather I installed Windows7 OS myself.So thats y there was no BlueTooth installed in my machine and the vendor from whom I purchased didn't gave me any drivers CD.

I downloaded the drivers from dell website and then I installed them into my machine.

So what is the solution for this problem?I f u have any pls reply me ASAP.

"there was no BlueTooth installed in my machine and the vendor from whom I purchased didn't gave me any drivers CD. "

Your machine has no bluetooth so while you can install drivers you can now ignore the messages.
