    Bluetooth Issues with Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6230

      I have a Samsung Series 9 NP900x3A.  I recently replaced the factory wireless network card with the Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6230.  I got everything working - WiFi, WiDi, and Bluetooth.  But recently the Bluetooth stopped functioning, and now it's not even available in the Device Manager.  Every attempt to repair of remove and reinstall fails because I can't do those when it's not functioning and the system doesn't see it as even existing.  My Windows (running 7 Home Premium) notification icons now list the Bluetooth as "Window Host Process (rundll32)"  with "Bluetooth" in italics underneath it.  I have all the updated drivers, but nothing seems to do the trick.  Anyone else have this issue?  And how can I do a repair or a reinstall of the driver if the Bluetooth software itself won't let me perform that through the Windows Uninstaller?
