Chances are there is no bluetooth. I also have an Acer 5610z and it has a place for bluetooth, but when you turn it on, the screen says no device. You may be able to buy a mini pci card with combo wifi and bluetooth to replace the current one, but that would lead you to removing alot of screws to install it. I have seen them on Ebay for around $40.00

The drivers for Windows can be used if no specific Linux drivers exist. There's a program within Linux called NDisWrapper which is designed to use the drivers provided for Windows XP in Linux. Refer to your particular distribution of Linux for the details on how to set up NDisWrapper from within your distribution (I've only done it in Ubuntu so have no experience of other distros)
This may sound like a stupid question but does your notebook computer have a WLAN/Bluetooth switch somewhere. This can be a touchsensitive "button" with some kind of antenna icon on it or a real switch/button.
