Windows 7: enable bluetooth in my laptop without using the keyboard

enable bluetooth in my laptop without using the keyboard

help me pls.
my laptop keyboard broke down a while ago, as of now, i don't have extra money for me to be able to replace it. now im using USB keyboard only, since my current keyboard doesn't have a fn key in it, i can't open the shortcut for the bluetooth using the keyboard.

1. is there any other way to open/enable it without using the keyboard?
2. i also can't see the BLUETOOTH device in the Device Manager, is that normal?

**i can use my bluetooth before my laptop broke down. and i saw in another forum that if you cant enable the bluetooth physically, the windows will not detect it but the forum is abt windows tablet so im not sure if it also applies with laptops.

If you Bluetooth isn't displayed in device manager, then Windows can't detect it. It may be disabled in BIOS. Can you get into BIOS? (you may need a function key to do so ) Check all BT settings in BIOS. Is it enabled? Is the device listed in BIOS?
