The Dell XPS M1710 comes with an internal Bluetooth adaptor. This means that as long as you have the latest Windows XP service pack installed on the laptop, you can connect to Bluetooth devices without the need for an external adaptor. When you turn on the XPS Bluetooth and a different Bluetooth device, a message will pop up on the laptop’s screen informing you that a device wants to connect to the computer. You just need to ensure the Bluetooth on the laptop is enabled first.
