Windows 7: Sony Vaio Bluetooth

Sony Vaio Bluetooth

So I was having some serious issues with my Sony Vaio (VPCYB13KD Canada) so I decided to do the Sony version of a clean install. Basically it takes all the software from a partition and makes your computer run like it's 'factory fresh'.

It fixed all my issues but for some reason my bluetooth has completely vanished. Yes, I've tried downloading the drivers from the Sony site but for some reason they won't appear. It goes through the whole process and says it was successfully installed but in the program list it's not there.

Also, it is does not appear in the Device Manager list (unknown or otherwise) and there is no option to send files when right clicking them. It is as if the bluetooth component of my laptop has vanished! I'm completely sure it works as I was using it this morning. Some software has gone haywire and it's driving me nuts.

Any help would be appreciated.

Nevermind, there isn't a physical switch but when you download the SmartWi driver, you can turn it off and on virtually. By default, Bluetooth is off.
