    Hi Camail62, Welcome to the forum!
    Ok, I will try to be the first to help you, but need some more details. What do you mean by "doesn't mean to connect?" Is your bluetooth setting switched to "on?"
    Try that first by going into your ipad: settings/general/bluetooth. Turn on.

    Regarding your PC-are you trying to connect sync your ipad to itunes? Make sure that you have the most updated version of itunes on your PC. Verify if you that first. If not, you can see directions and download here: Apple - Support - iTunes
