Windows 7: No bluetooth after replacing hard drive. Full New Install.

No bluetooth after replacing hard drive. Full New Install.

I had a hard drive go bad, so I had a new one installed and have updated all drivers from the ASUS site. I've had bluetooth running on this thing perfectly for a long time before hand.

Bluetooth settings are all enabled, and settings are set up to be discovered. There is no option to enable/disable bluetooth in my BIOS. Multiple devices can connect to each other, but not the computer. I have reset the devices themselves as well.

There is really no reason for it to not work. Device manager shows everything working properly.

I also am not getting any sound, and Directshow causes system crashes in DXdiag. The harddrive is from a reputable company, and I had them install it. Is there any chance that there were other hardware issues, that the computer just can't find?

Cheers

Also, bluetooth service is running. It's set to automatic. I installed the atheros driver from the ASUS site, since that's the hardware I have. I've checked for an answer for a couple days now, and thus the new thread. None of the many, many threads that I have looked at properly addresses my issue

Try booting with Linux Mint MATE DVD/USB and see if your devices (Bluetooth and sound) work with it.

replacing with Linux seems a little drastic doesn't it? I have a back up on an external, but I don't have a cd or anything. I suppose I'd be able to download a windows installation software and rip to a DVD?

Thank you very much for the response, by the way.

I didn't say anything to replace, it is called a live linux, you boot with the DVD/USB (no installation done). It is a good method to eliminate hardware faults. Re-consider please.

Replacing the hard drive with an SSD - easy?
Got an 128 GB SSD last night. Did a backup on the hard drive. Need to revisit the instructions, but it's install the SSD, put the boot CD in, plug the old hard drive in an USB port and let the process go. That easy? Will Microsoft be asking for activation on Win 7 and/or Office?
