Bluetooth Software sits on it own in Device Manager for most computers. Look under Human Interface devices to see if there is a Bluetooth hardware device.

You may not even have Bluetooth (if nothing is under Human Interface Devices, then you do not have Bluetooth), OR, it may not be working. Then it would show a hardware error in Device Manager.

No it never work before  <-- My guess is you do not have Bluetooth.

then either the drivers were never installed - and you need to do so, or the hardware is failing
