I have a MB Pro 17 inch core 2 duo 2.4 Ghz. Bluetooth used to work but stopped sometime after installing snow leopard (after 1 of the updates). The icon is in the menu but when you click on it, it says "Bluetooth: Not Available". I have run Hardware Test and it did not have any errors.

I copied the harddrive to an external drive, took the opportunity to install a new larger HD. Then I installed snow leopard from the DVD (original version when it first shipped), migrated my apps and files back and then ran Software Update. It is now at version 10.6.5.

System Profiler for Bluetooth says No Information Found. Bluetooth does not show up in System Preferences either.

If I go to Help and type in Bluetooth and then choose "setting up bluetooth connections" I get a choice to click on "Open Bluetooth Preferences". When I click it I get an Error that says "The item can not be opened. It may be disabled or not installed. 2 param error"

How do I get Bluetooth back?
