Titel:

Seeking advice re Bluetooth replacement

Tekst:

I have a MBP Unibody 17" 2.66 GHz (Early 2009)

Before Mountain Lion, Bluetooth stopped working. These were the symptoms:

1.The icon in System Prefs disappeared

2. About this Mac>System Report>Hardware>Bluetooth shows: no information found.

Now I've initialised my HD and done a clean install of Mavericks. There is still no icon in Sys Prefs and still 'no info found' in Sys Report.

I've seen the excellent ifixit article-

[guide|3422]

Using this, I opened up the machine and pulled out/reseated the connections to the Bluetooth board; on reassembling and rebooting, same symptoms.

So I'm about the order a new board, which seems to be the only way to go.

My question is: after replacing it, will the System automatically recognise the Bluetooth board (assuming there's no other problem) and Bluetooth icon return to Prefs?

The question is a little simplistic but am checking in case anyone has through experience any tips/tricks I might need to know.

Many thanks!
