How to enable the bluetooth after disabling it.

I disabled the bluetooth because the light was annoying. But when i went back to device manager. The bluetooth tab is gone. Bluetooth no longer shows up in the control panel either. Does anyone know how to reenable bluetooth? Thanks

Re: How to enable the bluetooth after disabling it.

switch the wireless adapter, press fn + f5 for wireless management windows, you'll be able to see bluetooth, click on/off button.

Re: How to enable the bluetooth after disabling it.

Also why I turn that wireless switch on the front of the computer from left to right. Nothing happens. Before it used to show a computer icon. Maybe this is the problem. Do you happens to have any ideas? THanks

Hi random68934,

May i know your machine type and model? Maybe you want to try updating your touchpad driver, power management and bios too?

Re: How to enable the bluetooth after disabling it.

Yes it is a Y560p. I don't see why I need to mess with the bios. I disable the bluetooth in device manager. When I go to start ---> cmd ---> SET DEVMGR_SHOW_NONPRESENT_DEVICES=1 ---> devmgmt.msc ---> view --->Show Hidden Devices. Then I can see the bluetooth 2.1 ebr thing. I could yesterday anyways. I did this again and now I can no longer see the bluetooth thing even after I follow those steps. I appreciate your replies. Do you guys have any ideas?

Re: How to enable the bluetooth after disabling it.

I forgot to mention. The previos steps I listed, I found them here: http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_7-hardware/bluetooth-network-adapter-disapp... . Basically I followed them and it said to uninstall the bluetooth driver then to test it again so windows will "find new hardware." I unistalled it and thats when I could no longer find bluetooth even after following those steps. Before I could find bluetooth after typing in the commands in command prompt. So do you maybe know how I can reinstall the driver or test it so windows can go through the "found new hardware" process? Thanks.
