Windows 7: Bluetooth problem

Bluetooth problem

Hi all. A while back, I upgraded from Vista to Windows 7 (cause Vista stinks). I'm using a Dell Studio 1535 Laptop, and everything works fine except the Bluetooth.

I am supposed to have a built-in adapter; there is even a Bluetooth light built into the keyboard, but it seems to have disappeared completely from my computer software-wise. I can't find anything even resembling Bluetooth in Device Manager or Control Panel.

I tried installing Windows Mobile Device Center, but that didn't do anything.

I'm guessing my adapter must be incompatible with 7, but I would really like to get it to work. Any suggestions?

Dell does not provide any Windows 7 drivers for your laptop. That's probably a big part of your problem. I'd try installing all of the Vista drivers - download them from Dell and install them, especially the chipset and bluetooth drivers.

Forgot to say, I tried that already. Thats the only place on my computer anything actually says "Bluetooth". Still doesn't work though.

I installed the cipset drivers, but nothing.

When I tried to install the Bluetooth driver, a box poped up that said "Activate Bluetooth using Fn+F2 or Radio On/Off Switch." The only button the box had said "Cancel Installation". I tried Fn-F2 but nothing happened and I don't have a Radio On/Off Switch that I know of.
