Default Bluetooth not working :( - 06-17-2011, 06:38 PM

I bought my Mini about a month back. Everything worked fine until today when I found that bluetooth is no more working. I'm using Windows 7. The bluetooth icon keeps flashing but it doesn't detect any device. I have also Ubuntu installed, and it can't get bluetooth to work too.
What shall I do? Is there a way to reinstall bluetooth drivers etc? Please help.

1. What does device manager show?

2. Have you installed the Dell Wifi/Bluetooth Radio utility?

3. Is Bluetooth enabled in the BIOS?

Thanks for the reply. I noticed the bluetooth was not working only yesterday and when I boot the netbook today it works! I don't know how it happened. :S
Anyway now that it's working everything's fine.
