Dell no longer uses the <Fn> + <F2> key combination for toggling Wi-Fi and Bluetooth? Or am I making the bad assumption that it is integrated? If it's integrated there must be some hardware or software switch. And then, as in my HP, there may also be a Dell utility on top of that.

On my HP Bluetooth makes no appearance anywhere when it is turned off; when on I get an icon in the Notification Area and it appears in Device Manager.

Surely there is a physical or software switch to toggle the Bluetooth on/off. Check your Dell documentation to discover what it is. On my only Dell laptop it is the <Fn> + <F2> key combination.

Need the Make and Model. I see Dell. you may have a button that enables bluetooth - you may have a function key + {key}. Cannot tell without knowing what box you are using.
