I too have had my bluetooth device unistalled on my Dell Inspiron 6000. I downloaded the the patch posted on Expert Exchange but the file would not finsh downloading. At arounf 56% of completetion, it asked for me to press Fn + F2 to enable the bluetooth, but that only disabled my wireless device. I do not see a blue bluetooth symbol on my keyboard that would operate with the Fn key. Thanks

Sorry for not clear :)

You need to disable the device in bios. Normally, for Dell comp., power up computer and press F2 to access bios. There, search for bluetooth device and disable it.
