How to turn on the blutooth on my acer Aspire E1-571?

I am using  acer Aspire E1-571 ( Window 8,64bit) now being confused how to turn on the bluttooth to connet my bluetooth keyboard.


I have tried press "Fn" & "F3",but it is just swtiching Flight mode off and Wifi on.


And then I have followed what this youtube saying but at the last step the option for bluetooch is grey and I couldnt click it.



I have also tried adding my bluetooth device by using "Adding device and printers" in the control panel, but it could not detect any new device (I am sure bluetooth keyboard is working as it could connet to my phone in a second and work well )


Now I am very confused whether my laptop have bluetooth connectivity?

(I couldnt believe a laptop being manufactured in 2013 and with Window 8 have no bluetooth though......)



Kind Regards,

    Turn On or Off Bluetooth

    1. Move the mouse to the lower right so that several icons begin to appear
    2. Move the mouse upward to reveal them. This set of icons is called the Charm Bar
    3. Click Settings
    4. Click Change PC Settings
    5. Click Wireless
    6. Under Wireless Devices, turn Bluetooth on or off

    If you are still unable to turn ON the Bluetooth device, you may get back to forum with the exact model number or part number of your computer, so that we can check the specification details.
