My Y530 originally came with Vista, but I upgraded to 7 (as could get it free from MSDN AA).
Bluetooth WORKED FINE with Vista, but now there is no way I can turn it on. I've downloaded and installed all Win 7 drivers and software from Lenovo website (except BT driver, as it says there is "no bluetooth device detected" and I shoul turn it on). Fn + F5 shows WiFi card only, also no BT device in control panel. What can I do?
PS. I'm starting to miss my old T41 where everything worked fine, just the way I needed. Y530 is full of annoying (not to say "stupid") features, with Lenovo Power Management as first of them :/
Solved! Go to Solution.

I'm using 32bit version of Win 7.
Meanwhile I managed to solve the problem. When I had launched my laptop for the first time after bringing it from a store I noticed that wireless lamp was pink - which meant that BT was active. So I went to BIOS and brought back default settings, which turned on the BT. Then I started the system and it installed the driver automatically. To be sure everything is compatible with Power Management, I additionally installed Lenovo software for the BT. After that Fn+F5 shows the device and everything seems to be working OK...

i'm not sure it'll help but try to check bios for wireless option is activated.
by the way, did you perform clean windows installation or upgrade?
cause upgrading windows may cause some issues if you forget to un-install drivers first.
edit: try the drivers from the below.

But the problem is my not being able to find bluetooth section in BIOS menu. I'm sorry to employ you with this issue, but it will be very pleased if you tell me how I can do it step by step.
