Do you see any devices with a yellow question mark under the Device Manager?

Thank you - but there are no devices with a yellow question mark under
device manager.

Also there is no entry for Bluetooth drivers!

Boot a "live" Linux CD/DVD/USB and see whether the BT is present there. If not, there's a hardware problem somewhere.

 

Good luck.

Here you go:

 

http://www.linuxmint.com/download_all.php

 

Download the disk, burn it as an ISO file and boot from it using the F12 option on startup by selecting your media drive as the boot device.

 

Good luck.

Cheers,
