    Bluetooth option not available in Win 8


    I recently used "Remove everthing and reinstall windows", after which I am not able find the Bluetooth option under Wireless section or at mobility centre. I also updated all bluetooth drivers from device manager but no success.

    I have Samsung ultrabook with Windows 8 installed(Model- np530u4c-s06in). The system do not have any function key for bluetooth.

    Please Help! Any help/suggestion is appreciated.

    After finding a lot, I finally Recovered the system from start-up. But now, under the wireless section- Wifi is displayed as Wi-Fi2. Is there is any way by which I can rename it to Wifi. I tried renaming by it says Wifi already exists.

    Secondly, Bluetooth option is now showing but is greyed. When I used troubleshooter, it said "Bluetooth Server driver" error but is not able to fix automatically. Does anybody knows how to do it manually. Maybe I need to reinstall the driver but have no idea which one?

    The system do not have any function key for bluetooth.
    The Notebooks I have and have worked on that include Bluetooth usually have it in conjunction with the Wi-Fi adapter, if Wi-Fi is off so is Bluetooth.

    Thanks for your time and Sorry for the trouble! I have Intel Bluetooth and by default Qualcomm bluetooth suite was installed. When I checked Control Panel found this and after uninstalling this, Bluetooth is working fine. Although with this I installed all the windows updates and optional updates.
