Y480 Upgraded to Windows 8 - Doesn't detect Bluetooth

I recently upgraded to Windows 8 and it went seamlessly except that Bluetooth is no longer recognized.  Nothing shows up in the Device Manager to indicate that anything is wrong, but it isn't recognized by the computer. I'm tried installing the drivers to see if it would be detected but didn't have any luck.

 

Any suggestions?
