Built in Bluetooth Disappeared
I need URGENT Help.
I recently upgraded from windows XP to windows vista buisness on my Dell Vostro 1510 Laptop
After the installation it seems that my Toshiba Blue-tooth shack software which i use to manage blue-tooth is not compatible with this vista version of windows.
Using Built in 360 blue-tooth adapter.
After the installation i noticed that i couldn't use blue-tooth on my computer, it disappeared totally. Nothing in the device manager, desktop and other blue-tooth using programs. When i tried to search for nearby blue-tooth devices using the Microsoft blue-tooth program, it said to check if my blue-device/adapter was plugged in. Help??
The Blue-tooth is controlled by a sliding switch on the left hand side of the computer casing. The switch also controls the wireless adapter.
I remember that the Toshiba blue-tooth stack can turn the blue-tooth adapter off without sliding the switch to the off position. That is the Toshiba program can turn the blue tooth off internally but i don't know how.
I might have turned the blue-tooth off using the Toshiba program before installing windows vista buisness on the computer in which i couldn't turn back on again after i finished upgrading because the program couldn't operate on vista.
Any way to fix my blue-tooth bearing in mind that it might not be the Toshiba program causing the problem. Any way to diagnose the problem and fix?
