First try to check in the program files if you have bluetooth installed.
start >> programs >>bluetooth >> bluetooth settings
look for the menu were you can activate the bluetooth.

also you can try. looking in the system tray icons. you will see the blueetooth icon in color red when it is disabled...right click on the icon and choose enable bluetooth radio.

    if you have the CD when you bought the has a driver in it for your bluetooth...also look in your manual on how to install this driver.
