It used to work when I had Windows XP installed, but now, with Windows 7, it isn't even showing up in my device manager.

I tried updating the drivers but that didn't fix the issue?

This question came from our site for system and network administrators.

Install the "Toshiba Bluetooth Stack" software. You should be able to find it on Dell's website.

Check your software switch (if there is any with Fn+ something), check your hardware switch (like a small switch for wifi+bt) and check your bios.

Yep, did that, it is enabled in the BIOS and i set the WiFi hotkey (Fn +F2) to Bluetooth only and nothing happens....However i should mention that i am using a wireless Microsoft mouse and keyboard with a bluetooth dongle....not sure if that would affect anything. I removed the dongle and the internal module still is unresponsive. – user37961 May 22 '10 at 12:52
Remove the dongle and remove everything related from the Device Manager from the control panel. Do a reboot, it should reinstall the drivers and reset everything back (no, dont plug your bluetooth back until you did the reboot and it finishes) – Shiki May 22 '10 at 14:56
