Intel Centrino 6235 or 7260 Bluetooth not detected by Windows [SOLVED]

I came across an interesting tip today:

[…] Samsung RC530 and a 7260.HMWWB. Bluetooth can’t be activated on some notebooks, so you need to activate it manually with a hardware “hack”. Just get some Scotch Tape / Sellotape (in german “Tesafilm”) and stick it on pin #51 (picture). Put the card back in the PCIe slot and have fun .

[…] this workaround works also for the 6235 and other Intel Wifi/Bluetooth cards..
