Windows 7: Dell Inspiron n5010 bluetooth problem

Dell Inspiron n5010 bluetooth problem

Hello ,

I have my dell for 1 month and i haven't got any problems till yesterday when I decided to transfer a song from the Laptop to my cell phone via bluetooth. The transfer started and everything was going well , when suddenly it stopped and a message appeared that says There is a problem with your driver , get the latest driver ... or something like that :) Then I downloaded the driver from and started installation . Everything was ok until the installer started deleting old files and it deleted all the c:// drive ,but that doesn't matter because after some check that windows made,it recovered most of the information.And after that I decided not to touch anything else and leave the bluetooth not working.But today i decided that I have to fix it and downloaded the driver and the BT software again.But today i first uninstalled the the old driver and software , and then installed the new ones . But my BT doesn't work . It is discoverable from my phone and i can turn it on and off , but when press Show BT Devices in the tray icon it opens a window and start browsing and can't find any devices ( I tried with my phone and a BT handsfree ) And the Nokia Ovi Suite can't find the phone.

ps Excuse me if there are any mistakes , I'm not a native speaker :)

Do you know who made the bluetooth device? it's not actually made by HP, if you can find the manufacturer it's practically guaranteed they will have a more current driver available.
