Hi guys, I don't really use my bluetooth, last time was over a year ago (Fedora 21), when it worked fine. I think it also didn't work on F22, but now, on F23, it still doesn't work.

so I ran systemctl status bluetooth

● bluetooth.service - Bluetooth service
   Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/bluetooth.service; enabled; vendor preset: enabled)
   Active: inactive (dead)
     Docs: man:bluetoothd(8)

May 29 13:28:30 laptop-home systemd[1]: Started Bluetooth service.
May 29 18:26:50 laptop-home systemd[1]: Started Bluetooth service.
May 29 19:18:10 laptop-home systemd[1]: Started Bluetooth service.
May 29 19:29:23 laptop-home systemd[1]: Started Bluetooth service.
May 29 19:33:20 laptop-home systemd[1]: Started Bluetooth service.
May 29 19:34:14 laptop-home systemd[1]: Started Bluetooth service.
May 29 19:35:41 laptop-home systemd[1]: Started Bluetooth service.
May 29 19:46:39 laptop-home systemd[1]: Started Bluetooth service.
May 29 19:47:06 laptop-home systemd[1]: Started Bluetooth service.
May 29 19:47:11 laptop-home systemd[1]: Started Bluetooth service.

I also installed blueman bluez-hid2hci When I run the Bluetooth Manager, I get:

Connection to BlueZ failed
Bluez daemon is not running, blueman-manager cannot continue.
This probably means that there were no Bluetooth adapters detected or Bluetooth daemon was not started.

lspci | grep -i bluetooth returns nothing

dmesg | grep -i blue returns nothing

Specs: HP Compaq 6730S, 32bit, running Fedora 23 with PAE

Any kind of help is most welcome!

I don't really know why, but after installing the Bluetooth drivers on my Windows partition (Bluetooth was disabled and there were no drivers because I rarely use Windows), I returned to Fedora to find my Bluetooth working again, with all the previous settings I had from F21. Maybe the chip was disabled or something like that, but it works now!
