Hi vineeth nix,
You may try the following steps and install the updated Bluetooth driver as an administrator:
- Click the following link to download the most updated driver for the Bluetooth: http://dell.to/OP6bkb- Save the folder (zipped folder) on the 'Desktop screen'- Double-click the new icon on the desktop labeled R241623.exe- The Self-Extracting window appears and prompts you to extract or unzip to C:\DELL\DRIVERS- Click Ok- After completing the file extraction, if the Self-Extractor window is still open, close it- Open the following path: C:\dell\Drivers\31N70\Win64 (Follow steps mentioned below)- Click 'Computer' and drive letter 'C'- Locate folder 'dell' and double click it- Locate folder 'Drivers' and double click it- Locate folder '31N70'- Locate folder 'Win64' and double click it - Locate file Inst (Refer to the image below) - Right click file 'Inst'- Click 'Run as an administrator'- Click 'Yes' to continue if prompted with 'User access control' message- Follow through with the installation as per the screen instructions- Finish the installation and check for the Bluetooth functionality- If issue persists, try using the 'setup' file to install drivers in compatibility mode (Next Step)
Install 'Setup.exe' file in 'compatibility Mode'- Navigate to C:\dell\Drivers\31N70\Win64- Right click ‘Setup’ file and click ‘Properties’- Click “Install in compatibility mode’- Click on Application and select ‘Troubleshoot Compatibility’- Next, click on ‘Troubleshoot Program’- Click on Program worked in earlier versions of Windows- Click on ‘Windows 7’- Click on ‘Start the Program’- Do not hit ‘Next’ until the installation completes- Once the installation completes, click on ‘Next’
If the issue still persists, you may have to wait for the arrival of an updated device driver compatible for Windows 8.Hope this helps. Please reply if you have any further questions. I would be glad to help.

If its not showing in Device Manager and you are sure you have got the Dell Wireless 365 card with the system. Tap Fn and F2 twice (WiFi+BT off, WiFi+BT on). Does it now show up? If so install the drivers from here:
