This may or may not help.
"The turn on button is on the left top of the netbook, right beside the lock/unlock icons."

What is the model number?

On W/7 try services and make sure Bluetooth is set at manual or automatic.
Not sure if that helps or not but worth a look.

Click START - ADMINISTRATIVE TOOLS - SERVICES - select BLUETOOTH SUPPORT SERVICE - Click START at Left Hand Pane

If you don't see SERVICES when you click on START it can be accessed via Control Panel

If on XP.it is Control panel.administrative tools.Services.Not sure if it is the same on vista.
