Dell Bluetooth not working after upgrading

My wife has a Dell studio 1555 laptop and the Bluetooth 370 adapter doesn't appear to be working after upgrade to Windows 7. It won't recognise external devices. I've downloaded drivers that I thought might be the problem but to no avail.

where did you download the drivers?
does your computer have a dedicated button that enables/disables bluetooth?

Downloaded drivers from Dell website and my WiFi switch is on the keyboard but that's not the problem. Any other thoughts?

bump.

I still haven't solved this problem and I was hoping to attract more possible solutions by bumping it. Going to call Dell Monday because I think I may have a dodgy blue tooth adapter which coincidentally stopped working after Windows 7 upgrade.

Try the download from Broadcom. Its a small installer that checks your chipset then downloads drivers from Broadcom direct. Worked like a charm for me.
