I recently uninstalled my atheros bluetooth suite and reinstalled it again. But this time the bluetooth driver is not listed in the Device Manager.

I refreshed it and it is still invisible.

I installed Ubuntu 11.10 as a second os and bluetooth works fine in it. How can I make windows to detect this adapter? I have windows 7 and Atheros AR5BBUI2 adapter.

Did you reinstall both the bluetooth driver and the bluetooth stack? – Hennes Feb 23 '13 at 13:01
which version of Windows & bluetooth adapter do you have? – Sathya Feb 23 '13 at 13:07
I reinstalled both the stack and driver but they are of no use. – Shankar Feb 23 '13 at 13:17
