I have gone to the system configuration and I see that under the 'services' tab, there are the following applications running:

  • Bluetooth Device Monitor (Intel)
  • Bluetooth Media Service (Intel)
  • Bluetooth OBEX Service (Intel)
  • Bluetooth Service (Microsoft)

I have looked in my Device Manager, but there is no Bluetooth device there. How can I turn on and off my Bluetooth so that I could use it normally? I have a Samsung Computer, and I figured out that my Bluetooth module is one from Broadcom.

Did you check under network adapters? – soandos Jul 17 '12 at 5:30
Where can you find that? – DanielPincus Jul 17 '12 at 5:32
Look in the Control Panel\Network and Internet\Network Connections Also look under network adapters in the device manager – soandos Jul 17 '12 at 5:34
I see nothing that has to do with bluetooth (or at least it doesn't say anything of the sort on the screen). I see Local Area Connection, Wireless Network Connection, Wireless Network Connection 2, Wireless Network Connection 3, and that is all. – DanielPincus Jul 17 '12 at 5:38
Are you sure you have bluetooth? Try downloading the driver from samsung for module. – soandos Jul 17 '12 at 5:40
