Mac Mini (3.1 - mid 2009) wouldn't recognize wireless keyboard today - am now missing any Bluetooth icon or options in System Preferences - Internet & Wireless. Bluetooth under Hardware in system profiler just says "no information found", and bluetooth icon in menu bar says "Bluetooth: Not available". Bluetooth firmware update says "your computer's bluetooth firmware is up-to-date". Bluetooth file exchange error says "in order to use this application, you must have a Bluetooth module..." This worked a week ago (I've been out of town). Any suggestions how I re-install Bluetooth?

Mac Mini 3.1, Mac OS X (10.6.5)

    Welcome to  Discussions!

    If your system is telling you the the firmware is up to date, your problem is more likely that your Bluetooth hardware has failed.

    Thanks.

    Update - found the Apple Hardware Test on disc2 that came with the machine. Took the extended test to tell me there was nothing wrong. On this restart however Bluetooth is once again active. Glad it's now working but don't really feel better about this "solution"...
