bluetooth vanished on windows 7


Standard Member
i have a sony vaio fw11s laptop

originally it had windows vista with built in bluetooth

ive upgraded to windows 7 professional, and bluetooth isnt anywhere to be seen in device manager and it doesnt work

when i reboot and load vista again, it works perfect

the strange thing is, i have had bluetooth working on windows 7 before but now its vanished

can anyone help?

Try reinstalling the Windows 7 Bluetooth drivers.

ive tried to install broadcom drivers again, and it doesnt even recognise a bluetooth device on my laptop. or is there different drivers you know of?
