Windows 7: Bluetooth not starting.

W7 64 Ultimate
Bluetooth not starting.

Hi all, first post, seems a lively forum, hope I can help too.

I have a Dell Precision M65, with Windows 7 64 Ult on a fresh 500GB HDD, which passed all the tests on the Windows 7 upgrade program. Windows 7 did not detect the inbuilt Bluetooth module on load, but I installed the Dell Vista drivers, which appear to have loaded ok. Then installed the latest version of Bluesoleil, which is Windows 7 compatible according to them. All seemed to be progressing well, was able to search for a device and pair it, but after a couple of reboots I can't get the Bluetooth device to start. The notification icon just says "starting bluetooth", then fades away. I have reset the Bluetooth Support Service to automatic and started it.

Any assistance or pointers would be appreciated.

Thanks, Will
