Not all Acer laptops have Bluetooth bult-in, and your seems to be one of these. You will have to purchase an Acer Bluetooth module or a USB Bluetooth adapter.

If you are absolutely sure it worked before (have you had it paired with other devices, have you used with a mobile phone?) then you have to visit the Acer website and look for the appropriate drivers.

Most Acer models are "Bluetooth Ready". It means the button is there, the software is installed but the actual Bluetooth hardware is not available.

As Mauricio said, it's possible that your Acer is Bluetooth ready, but doesn't have the module installed.

The white label on the base on the unit will say whether Bluetooth is installed on your particular model. Something similar to the following:
Acer Bluetooth
