Windows 7: Dell n15 5110 Bluetooth suddenly stopped working

Dell n15 5110 Bluetooth suddenly stopped working

Hey guys, I have been using my Laptop with my Bluetooth speaker for a long time.
Today, suddenly I would not find my Supertooth speakers under "Devices" where it has always been.
Uninstalled Bluetooth drivers, installed them again, still, cannot find it. I cannot add it either.

When I went into the Bluetooth option it said "Error with local device". Weird. Restarted my Laptop, went into BIOS and cannot find any Bluetooth ON/OFF thing, and I am sure I had one there before.

I booted my Laptop again, went into Windows Mobility Center and I see that Bluetooth is "OFF".

In services all Bluetooth services are started and running, tried stopping them and starting them again, still, no luck.

Any ideas? thanks!


Anyone who might have the same problem, it took me few days to work this out and I am stil not sure what I have done. But, I will tell you the steps I took before it started working back.

I removed all the Bluetooth drivers, and everything. I used Your Uninstaller! to remove everything completely so I would not have anything left. After that, I went into BIOS and even tho I didn't see any "Radio" option or any "Bluetooth" option I rested all settings to defaults. Booted up again, installed drivers again, viola, my Bluetooth started working again. No idea why this happened at first, or how. But this is how I got it fixed. BTW. I tried restoring defaults settings when I still had the drivers installed and it didn't work, so I guess I had to remove them first for some reason. It's really weird. Anyway, thanks! :)
