    I Dropped my macbook last night, it looks fine, it didn't shut off, music was playing, no skips or pauses, and the whole machine is working and running like normal, BUT For some reason it seem the bluetooth isn't working now? It says "Bluetooth: Not Available" This is weird.. It was working fine.. Any Ideas?

    It may have knocked a connector loose, but you should try and reboot. Maybe even resetting pram and nvram.

    Would it be worth reseting the SMC?

    No, I don't think so. The SMC only controls the base level of controls, keyboard, fans, etc. I don't think it would have any control over BT. BUT... if all else fails, give it a shot.

    Have you try restarting it? I have this problem with my MB and MBP in the past and restarting it works.

    Yes, it works after I Restart it, but disconnects everything and goes back to Not Available after 5 minutes.
