Pretty much the title, last hard drive died on me so I replaced it with a new one and installed a fresh copy of windows on it. Before the change, I had full bluetooth capability and regularly connected devices onto it. Now, there is no option in bluetooth settings to turn bluetooth on, and in Device Manager nothing regarding bluetooth is present (even with showing hidden devices). I tried downloading some bluetooth drivers and the download wizard said completed, however no changes. The troubleshooting tool simply says the pc doesnt have bluetooth capability, which I know is not true as I have had it previously.

Some Bluetooth drivers, where from ?

Is this a laptop or desktop? What's the make and model if laptop? List specs please if desktop.

Its a Desktop, a Dell XPS 8500

Device name DESKTOP-PS6I017
Processor Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-3770 CPU @ 3.40GHz 3.40 GHz
Installed RAM 16.0 GB
Device ID 5CC39932-AB02-4859-9A8E-B3935AF32066
Product ID 00326-10000-00000-AA087
System type 64-bit operating system, x64-based processor

Up until I completely changed my hard drive and installed a fresh copy of windows the bluetooth worked just fine, now I can't even detect the device on the computer, when the motherboard itself should have built in bluetooth.
