hello i am a newbie here, jz registered and i need help

i know there are some article about my topic in here, i followed all the instruction, but still do not help my problem

i have Acer 5553 laptop with bluetooth 2.0+EDR built in, first time i bought this laptop, they set all everything ok, but after few months later i re-format my laptop and i want my bluetooth back, but my bluetooth devices not detected, what should i do ?

i follow these following instruction:
1. http://jonsguides.nfshost.com/bluetooth/index.html
2. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/883258
3. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/840635

ok this what i jz did based on first article:
1.Uninstall all bluetooth software

2.Disable antiviurs and firewall

3.Install bluetooth Widcomm software (which i download it from http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/notebook/as_5550.html)

on the half-way installing, an error message pop up said: "Bluetooth device not found, turn on the bluetooth and click Ok to continue or click Cancel to continue without bluetooth devices" (this is not the exact error message what i got, but the main point is that)

done! so anyone what should i do ? on the first article tells about patcher, i don't know what patcher, what do patcher do? but i download a patcher from http://www.dev-hack.com/pafiledb/index.php?act=view&id=3
is that the patcher what they were talking about?

sorry my english is not good

and i exactly the same based on microsoft website intruction, but still can't help me though

Most Acer notebooks have a switch and a blue LED to indicate the Bluetooth is on. Is this the case? Are you sure the Bluetooth is on when you install the software?

You should not need any "hack" to install original drivers on your notebook.

when i haven't install my driver and i try to switch on my bluetooth, no light is on, my button is a slide button

if we don't have driver yet and we switch on the bluetooth, it will still on indicated by the LED ? i thought the bluetooth could on if we install the driver first

like my wireless lan, the LED light is blinking but i could not turn it off by using the slide button, so i need to disable the wireless network from windows to turn it off (no more blinking)

if i am not mistaken, the first time i bought, if i want turn off the wireless network i just slide off the button then it will off, did i remember it wrong ?
