Dell Vostro Bluetooth 355 Vista SP1
I successfully installed Microsoft's Vista Bluetooth drivers followed by installing the Dell Bluetooth drivers. Previously, I saw many of the issues others had. Finally, I ran Dell's Diagnostics from the utility CD. The Bluetooth device was not listed. I rebooted pressing F2 to enter Setup in BIOS. Installed devices toward the top correctly identified that the Bluetooth device had been installed. But when I checked Wireless toward the bottom, Bluetooth had not been enabled and the Switch had not been enabled to include Bluetooth. I enabled both and exited Setup with a Save. When I reran Diagnostics from the CD, I found the Bluetooth device under USB devices.
After rebooting Vista with SP1, Microsoft's drivers installed. These drivers appear under Network devices. I had to uninstall the Dell Bluetooth drivers and then reinstall them. These appeared in a Bluetooth device entry and in several USB entries.
