"dongle" is the bluetooth device. I've tried uninstalling and re-installing the drivers. I've also tried another bluetooth dongle that I had when this problem started, I thought it was the device itself so I bought the replacement.
The indicator light on the dongle is blue and blinking, and turns off when the drivers are uninstalled.
Went to check my event viewer for errors and saw that the Network Connection Broker Service was disabled. Changed it to start automatically and now I have my bluetooth functionality again.
