ASUS isn't going to cover a 7 year old machine regardless.
Dont use the auto update tool for drivers......ever!
latest drivers and proset software package directly from Intel website for win 7

I do actually have a g73 but I've not attempted to upgrade it to BT 4.0 so unfortunately I can't recommend a card. If it was me I think I would look at reviews of highly rated combo cards on Newegg and Amazon. If other people are successful installing one that might be a good sign. You'll actually want to read the one-star reviews to see if anyone else had compatibility issues. I think a lot of the reviews would be people installing it in new machines though so no telling if their experience is directly applicable.
The other option would be to look for a USB bluetooth. That would likely have less compatibility concern but would take up a USB port.

If you bought the card second hand, it could be a used card. A lot of the time these cards come out of other laptops that are parted out or are OEM stock. If the device stopped responding, it almost sounds like the bluetooth on the card is having issues.
I agree with Xeromist. If you're having that much trouble with it, I would just go with a dongle. They are insanely small these days and also inexpensive.
