Bluetooth won't turn on.

  1. I'm running a Dell D800 laptop, recently upgraded to XP SP2.
    I have Bluetooth built-in, but I can't get it to turn on! The Bluetooth icon
    in the Systray is red, but if I right-click and select enable Bluetooth
    Radio, I get a message box "Bluetooth radio is turned off. Press Fn+F2 to
    turn it on."
    Pressing Fn+F2 does not do it! It does, however, toggle my Wireless
    connection!
    This is driving me up the wwall! Can anyone tell me where to turn this
    Bluetooth on?

    I'm having the same problem...
    Except I'm running on a Dell D830. Have you figured it out yet?
