Have you considered (as a diagnostic install only) installing Ubuntu on a 4GB USB flash/pen drive? You could check BlueTooth functionality from there... It would leave your hdd untouched.
Just a thought/question.
Snow Leopard 10.6.6
128GB SSD + 16GB SDHC
2TB of NFS mounts courtesy of foonas-ized LinkStations
as opensource TimeCapsules (+ p910nd printserver & Firefly media server)

To confirm whether a module is on board, just pull up and gently snap off the gray palm rest below the keyboard (no need to remove the keyboard). You can wiggle it loose with a credit card worked around between the gray and the black plastic (my fingernails do the job). The BT module is about 1" X 3/4" nestled in a small black-plastic well just to the right of the trackpad assembly well at the very front edge of the DM-10V, with a 1-1/2" cable that connects it to the right-most white plug on the front lip of the motherboard. This would be a good first step to resolve the question. It is entirely possible for a dead module to be there with no BT preference selection in System Preferences, but it would not be possible for there to be a BT preference selection if there is no module on board.
Also, I have never ordered a DM-10V with a BT module, I find them on eBay, directly from China. I have 2 DM-10Vs and have swapped the modules around between the DM-10Vs; one module works, the other never has worked. Perhaps this is your problem, too.
