Try using a cheap generic usb Bluetooth adapter for testing. As far as I can tell, the Bluetooth module in that laptop is integrated with the Wlan module. That usually requires special firmware.
Note: not all bluetooth chipsets work reliably with Linux, but most usb adaptors from reputable brands work fine.
