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

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

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.
