Open an terminal and type
rfkill list all
If the bluetooth is shown in the list,run
rfkill unbound bluetooth
This should activate the bluetooth.
But if the bluetooth is disabled by hardware switch,this command won't work. If so , read the laptop manual to know the hardware switch for bluetooth and then activate it.
May be bluetooth is disabled by hardware switch. Press the hardware switch again to enable it. In DELL Inspiron, normally the hardware switch is along with F2 (above 2). If function keys are toggled you have to press Fn+F2. After pressing the key waits for some seconds and if no response press again.
