I have recently added an Atheros AR9002wb-1ng WiFi combo card to my HP Pavilion Dv6325us laptop. I had to modify my BIOS to get the WiFi to work, but the Bluetooth isn't working. It's not even detected.

There is nothing that I can see that says bluetooth is either visible or hardware-enabled. Check if there is a harware-switch to enable, or if there is some bios value available. On some laptops there is a FN+<key> to enable bluetooth. –  fossfreedom Aug 29 '11 at 18:42
    
Here's the thing, when I install the module into a friends notebook, the blue-tooth is detected. It seems that it is only undetectable in my notebook. –  ITman Oct 12 '11 at 19:18
    
This question should instead be filed as a bug report, and as such is off-topic, thanks! How to report a bug. Regards, –  Ringtail Mar 21 '12 at 16:50

I have not found a solution and I am going to assume that this is a hardware problem.
