its a hp mini 210-1011ea

as for bluetooth services, ive no idea..
im to scared to install them again incase they screw up.. again
and as i sad, if you install the correct wifi driver from hp, it wont even install actually.
thier support is crap.

no dvd with it
its a netbook
it had a recovery partition
but i couldnt acess it
so had to format and install a fresh windows 7 via flash drive.

and here i am...
and it looks like there is no solution

Call HP. Bug them and you might be able to send it in for repair if it is new. Keep bugging them until they give you what you want (God bless America)

No CDs at all? wow.

There is no harm in attempting to install the Bluetooth driver as well as the wifi. I cannot locate your computer using "mini 210-1011ea". Did you get it from the US/are you located in the US? Could be that this is a problem, as drivers are per-region.
This is what I found using "mini 210-1011", is it one of these?:

I agree with that.

But, going here for the drivers: Software & Driver Downloads HP Mini 210-1011EA PC - HP technical support (United Kingdom - English)
You will notice that there are at least 9 different networking drivers. Did you try them all?

Now, even I don't know which is the right one, but I think it should be one of these:
Ralink 802.11 b/g/n WiFi Adapter HP Mini 210-1011EA PC - HP technical support (United Kingdom - English),
Broadcom Wireless LAN Driver for Microsoft Windows 7 HP Mini 210-1011EA PC - HP technical support (United Kingdom - English),
or Atheros Wireless LAN Driver for Microsoft Windows 7 HP Mini 210-1011EA PC - HP technical support (United Kingdom - English)

Might as well uninstall the others and keep trying new ones in that list, but start with these three!

hmm
the thing is, when i put one in, it stays in, and keeps reinstalling the bluetooth along with it.. i think..
im tired of keep having to put fresh windows 7 in...
but maybe i will have one more try
i dont think any of them will work anyway..

most of them are for other specific stuff, i think only the first one is just a standard wifi driver/

Mystic, Do this: System Restore Point - Create

That way if you encounter trouble, you can restore the computer.

At least attempt to get all the updates going, they shouldn't mess with your computer I honestly don't know what is wrong though.

Good luck!

hmm
i spoke too soon again.
It works sometimes, others not.
This is bizarre.
just pot luck when it works or not.
what knd of error can make that happen.

I have xp on this netbook also, and linux mint, and both work in wifi ALL the time.
Just windows 7 keeps screwing up and cutting out the wifi, telling me i have 'no connectionsavailable'
I'm out of ideas.
Anyone? thanks
