Can you please try rewording the question?
Yes there is a chip inside every laptop (and some desktops) that gives it the power to connect via wifi. This same thing can give the computer the Bluetooth/hotspot capabilities I am looking for someone that has knowledge in this field to help me get the right one for my computer.

Ok so as far as hot spot you can still use connectify and for Bluetooth just get a two dollar usb. I still stand by my last post

My laptop had different hardware problems and when I was under warranty I sent it in and they fixed it. Its giving me more problems now and I'm not under the warranty. I spoke to someone high in the company and he's "giving a one time out of warranty fix." Last time I gave it in, I thought they would scan for ALL problems but it turns out that they didn't. This time, being my last time, what problems would make them do a FULL check up?

What did you do that brought up that message?
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

Running a program
Did you get that when you opened office? Or did that pop up somewhere else
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

I would ask whoever wrote the program. Sounds like it might be a messagebox that was built in.

Toshiba Satellite C55-B5272. Windows 7.
Trying to reset to factory without a disc.
Held down 0 key while powering up but says,   select  proper boot device. Got blue screen in middle of updates.
I don't care about the info on the machine.. Tia
