    Can't make computer bluetooth discoverable

    Please help. I have an HP m7757c MediaCenter pc and I am using Microsoft's
    Wireless entertainment desktop 7000. I am trying to sync my Treo 755p to the
    computer, but when i go into bluetooth options and check "make computer
    discoverable", I get an error saying "an error occured and the changes could
    not be saved The bluetooth device may not be plugged in". I cannot find my
    keyboard or mouse in the list of bluetooth devices. I have tried
    reinstalling the keyboard/mouse, but it didn't help. Any suggestions?

    Penguinphan,

    I'm not familiar with the device you're trying to sync, but take a look at
    the following link to determine whether it contains information that can get
    the device connected to Vista:

    http://www.microsoft.com/windowsmobi...icecenter.mspx

    One other reference that may be helpful, is here:

    It's up to you to determine whether the above information can be applied to
    your situation.

    thanks for your help freddy. i think that the issue is that the computer
    returns an error every time i check "make computer discoverable" in
    bluetooth. I always get an error saying that it couldn't save and that the
    bluetooth adapter is not plugged in. but the adapter is plugged in, or I
    wouldn't be able to use my keyboard and mouse. I'm at a loss here.
