    I wonder if anyone can help.

    I have recently bought a HP mini 110 netbook but am having problems with the bluetooth. One day i can turn the netbook on and the bluetooth application will work but the next it doesn't appear and i can't find it on the netbook.

    I'm looking for a solution to this problem as i regularly upload photos to the netbook. I am wondering if anybody else has had a similar problem.

    Hope somebody can help!

    As far I know, there is a switch at the bottom edge of the netbook to switch on the wlan and bluetooth!!

    Run -> regedit -> HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Bluetooth -> Notification Area Icon (set value to 1) -> restart Windows

    It does happen with Desktop PCs from time to time; might be a bug (as I never disable it myself...)

    I think I ve lost you a bit there! Do you mean you searched for the bluetooth icon within the Control Panel and you couldn't find it? Or did you actually searched within the Registry :confused:
