    I have tried nguyenxhoang method but it says I don't have a matching Bluetooth device for the DFU image file. I'm 100% sure I have Bluetooth, because I have used it with another phone. Help?

    Re-format is the only way at this time assuming the hardware did not fail, which it probably didn't. If you re-format and it fixes the problem, please let us know.

    I'm having the same issue. I'm not particularly sure when my bluetooth stopped working, but I know it used to. I also have an Alienware M11xR2 laptop and I couldn't follow through with the regular bluetooth installation because there is no "switch" for my bluetooth.
    When I right click my laptop in device manager and click on bluetooth options, nothing happens.
    I've gone into BIOS and turned bluetooth off, then restarted and turned it back on.
    I'd love to handle this without reformatting... and opening the machine would void my warranty. So, if anyone solves this, please let me know!

    I fixed it :D
    Step 1: Go to Device Manager
    Step 2: Right click on your computer name, hit add legacy hardware
    Step 3: use the option that leads to a list of all hardware
    Step 4: click "have disk" in the corner.
    Step 5: Find the folder that you presumably already downloaded to try to fix this. The Dell drivers from the other solution to the problem.
    Step 6: find one of the bluetooth drivers in there.
    Step 7: click ok, let the device manager install all of the drivers.
    Step 8: your bluetooth radio should have been reinstalled and back in your device list.
    :D

    You can uninstall the extra devices you don't need, just be sure to leave the radios installed.

    Didn't work, but if someone could give the device ID/name of the Bluetooth device then I could choose the already configured drivers from that list. The I have disk doesn't work.

    If you performed a complete reformat and re-installed from scratch and it's still not working, then it cannot be a software issue.

    It's a discrete module that gets installed under the keyboard/palmrest. As you can see in my signature, I have one for sale.

    My friend I'm using Dell Studio 1558 with Windows 7 Ultimate edition, 8GB R.A.M, 500 GB H.D.D, 1GB graphic card ATI Moility Radeon. I've having the same problem with my bluetooth. I've tried the following steps which you have mentioned, however when I try to run "SetupBluetoothDFU.exe" file from the location "C:\dell\drivers\R226746\R226746\Win64\svcpack", it asks me to choose a "DFU Image" file which is there in the SVCPACK itself. Now when I browse and choose it, it's states a message that it's this DFU image file doesn't matches the bluetooth device.

    Can you please help and tell me what can I do, to make it work?
