This was caused by the bluetooth module that comes with the laptop. In word I went to file --> options. Under Add-Ins we see the bluetooth driver.

Under COM Add-ins click Go. Untick the send to bluetooth checkbox.


  1. Thanks for digging me out of a hole!

  2. WOW Thz. I made all the possible updates to Office and still nothing. This is good, thx.

  3. The relaible and fast desktop is for selling. Customers who are shopping for a desktop today are looking at the following popular models.

  4. As saving money is a big advantage that comes when you buy cheap refurbished desktop computer. We all like to save money, especially when everyone is on a tight budget, so this is a big benefit that anyone can take advantage of.

  5. Thanks, that was helpful. It worked for me.

  6. Dell's most popular Dell Refurbished Laptops are Latitude and Inspiron. The Latitude series of "notebook" computers is no longer manufactured, but is still a great buy for someone looking for an up-to-date machine. Latitude is an apt name for these models: they afford you great leeway in updating, expanding, or otherwise changing the internal workings of the computer. With its black chassis and clean lines, it is a rather "normal" looking computer. It is a middleweight unit, but sized to fit any standard laptop case, along with AC/DC adaptor, mouse, floppy and zip disks, and other accessories. The Dell Latitude C600, CPX, and L400 are the three most popular models in the line.

  7. Worked like a charm :D Thanks a lot..
