Try installing bluez or gnome-bluetooth if you need a GUI.

Sometimes it pays to check the obvious, make sure the wireless switch on your laptop isn't off...

This might be obvious as well, but try running:
Code:
/etc/init.d/bluetooth start

Also, please post the contents of these files:
Code:
/proc/acpi/ibm/bluetooth
/etc/modprobe.conf

*Note: The part in red may be different in your system.

[root@server ~]#
