I updated to Windows 8 and now my Bluetooth stopped working on my Sony VPCEB23FX

Help! After upgrading to Windows 8, my computer no longer allows me to turn on Bluetooth. I've went to Microsoft for help and spent nearly 4 hours with them trying to resolve the issue only to have them lead me back to Sony. If you could leave me a link with the Bluetooth driver I can download for Windows 8 64 bit, that'd be awesome -- thanks!!!

did you check the bios setting?

and do you have any yellow question mark in your device manager?

I can't seem to check the bios setting even during the boot startup. No yellow question marks in the device manager either

Just figured out how to get to boot menu. What do I do from there?

I think I found the solution :

download "VAIO Care™ Troubleshooter" it Allows Bluetooth service configuration.

 
 
 
 
when you finish restart your computer.

I just noticed that download is for Windows 7, is there one for Windows 8?
