Bluetooth Services is missing from Windows XP Professional

Original title : Inbuilt Bluetooth Services

Hi, I am using MSWindows XP Professional Version 2002 Service Pack 3 on HP ProBook 6555b. The machiene has an inbuilt bluetooth device. Under Device Manager I can see - Bluetooth Devices > HP Integrated Module with Bluetooth 2.1 Wireless Technology. However under services (services.msc) I do not see any Bluetooth Support service. I am thus unable to use the bluetooth feature. Would the experts help? Do let me know if further information is required. Thank you.
