Make sure that your PC has been shutdown, unplug the power cable or switch off power at the mains socket.

Return your PC's cover and ensure that all retaining screws are put back.
Plug the PC back in and boot up. Your new hardware will be detected when Windows starts up. You can confirm that the driver software has been installed because the BT Voyager Wireless Utility Icon will appear in the in the bottom right of your screen.
