The following answer is copied from the Windows 7 Help and Support document. It is not that useful.

You might need to make your computer discoverable to Bluetooth devices, or set Windows to alert you when a new device tries to connect to your computer. To do this, you need to control how your computer pairs with (connects to) Bluetooth devices.

To control how your computer pairs with Bluetooth devices:

1. Click to open Control Panel.

2. In the Control Panel search box, type Bluetooth, and then click Change Bluetooth settings.

3. In the Bluetooth Settings dialog box, click the Options tab and do any of the following:

  • To make your computer discoverable to Bluetooth devices, select the check box for Allow Bluetooth devices to find this computer.
  • When a Bluetooth enabled computer is in discovery mode, it broadcasts a wireless signal that allows it to be detected by other Bluetooth enabled computers or devices. This is sometimes called pairing mode.
  • Warning - To help protect your computer from someone accessing it without your permission, only make your computer discoverable when you want a Bluetooth device to find your computer. Disable discovery when you no longer need it.
  • To allow Bluetooth devices to connect to your computer, select the check box for Allow Bluetooth devices to connect to this computer.
  • To be notified when a Bluetooth device is trying to connect to your computer, select the check box for Alert me when a new Bluetooth device wants to connect.
