It would help to know what Bluetooth device is in that system.  And
what kind of system it is... who made it? What model?
Also, is your bluetooth device even turned on?  Is there a button on
the netbook that will enable/disable the bluetooth adapter?  Have you
looked in BIOS to see if it is enabled/disabled in BIOS?

if you open a terminal, what is the output of the following commands:

lspci (just a hope... the bluetooth adapter in my laptop doesn't
appear in lspci)
hcitool dev
hcitool scan
