Question Bluetooth Activation

Good day.

I got a new lpatop as a gift.

Product description: HP 1000-1b04AU Notebook PC
Product number: D4B70PA
Serial number: 5CG4070Z27

Running on Ubuntu 13.10. I am a tech dummy and I have been trying to use the world wide web to activate the built in bluetooth in this device. I have tried downloading several applications via the Ubuntu software, through the erminal but to no avail. Yesterday I still can see the bluetooth icon on my tool bar but now its gone. Error I always get is "no adapters found." What steps should I take to be able to make use of the full functions of OS Ubuntu aka Linux.

By the way I also tried to raise this straight to HP support but i still did not get any response.

Will be much appreciated for all your help.

What does lsusb say?

$ lsusb

You probably need to add the firm ware to make the bluetooth work.
