EDIT. Fixed it...
Call Apple ASAP.
I have this, even though all my BT devices and options are disable.
your last name is still showing.
That isn't, call Apple, see what they have to say, they might suggest running a hardware diagnostic test, I've never performed one but I think it involves the Leopard disc that came with your Mac.
Yea just insert your Leopard Install Disk 1 and hold down the D key on startup and it should go into diagnostic mode. Hopefully that will help with your issue.
That's what happened to me. The bluetooth died, it wouldn't show up in system profiler, so I brought it in for service. Apple couldn't fix it, so they replaced the entire machine.
Luckily for me, my original machine was a MacBook Pro Core Duo v1 (early 2006), and they replaced it with the (then) current MacBook Pro Core 2 Duo (early 2008). Nice upgrade. You Mac is practically new, but a replacement may be in the offing. Prepare for that before you bring it in for service.
Have you restarted the machine? I had it go bad on me once and just rebooting fixed everything.
Something similar happened to me a few weeks ago. My BT prefs pane had disappeared overnight. After a bit of reading, it turned out that all I needed to do was make sure my BT keyboard was turned on and discoverable while my macbook was booting up.
In my panic, I called Apple and was just told to reset the PRAM.
I had to reset the PRAM when my iSight quit working. I decided to give it a try to cure the Bluetooth issue and it worked. I've gotta keep my eye on this.
lol. hello mike neff
