    Bluetooth adapter not detected on PC no matter what!!


    My Bluetooth dongle randomly stopped getting detected on my PC. If I plug the dongle in another PC it works and I can enable/disable it in Devices in Settings. I tried multiple USB ports on my PC and non of them work. I ran troubleshoot in Settings and it says "Please try using an external Bluetooth adapter to add Bluetooth capability on this PC", even though my dongle is plugged in. I downloaded Bluetooth drivers from Intel, doesn't work. Bluetooth is missing in device manager, and when I show hidden devices and update the Generic Bluetooth Radio it doesn't work. The dongle just shows up as CSR Reference Endpoint in the Bluetooth & Other Devices under Devices in Win 10 Settings. I tried just about everything and nothing works! Any ideas?

    :)

    Promate Bluetooth™ 4.0 USB Adapter !

    Hello Everyone

    I have just bought the above mentioned bluetooth adapter but unfortunately cant manage to connect my bluetooth headset with it (does not find the device in pairing mode, keeps searching)! I have downloaded and installed the latest driver for this device from the promate website. Any suggestions?

    OS - Win7 64 bit

    Bluetooth adapter not detected

    I have a dual boot Acer Aspire 5745- Windows 10 (upgraded from Windows 8.1) and Windows 7. The bluetooth adapter is Atheros AR3011. The adapter works flawlessly on Windows 7 (and worked without any problem on Windows 8/8.1). If I cold boot to Windows 10,
    the adapter is not detected at all. However if I boot to Windows 7 and restart and immediately boot to Windows 10, the adapter is detected and works properly. But if I then put my computer to hibernation or sleep, the adapter disappears when the computer resumes/wakes
    up. Also, I can use the Fn+F3 combination (to toggle wireless adapters) to turn the bluetooth off (if it was on) but cannot turn it back on. Once it is off, it stays off. There is no problem in toggling the WiFi adapter on/off.

    I have tried the different versions of the Atheros drivers, including the latest Windows 10 driver, Windows 8 drivers, the driver installed by Windows update as well as generic Microsoft drivers. The end result is same. The adapter is detected (and works)
    if I restart from Windows 7. If I start the computer by resuming/waking/cold booting to Windows 10, the adapter disappears from the device manager (although visible if I enable"Show hidden devices"). Unchecking "Allow the computer to turn off the device to
    save power" in the adapter power management tab makes no difference, neither does disabling selective suspend in the usb power settings.

    I never had any problem with adapter on Windows 7/8/8.1. No matter how I started the computer- cold boot, restart, wake, resume the adapter works/worked flawlessly.

    I cannot understand why Microsoft spammed me to upgrade to Windows 10, told me that my computer could run Windows 10 and then broke my bluetooth. Now the last thing I need is for an MS engineer to tell me to run sfc. And MS, please don't tell me that I
    need to contact the hardware vendor or Acer. You should have told me this before asking me to upgrade.

    Bluetooth in windows 10

    My computer specs are as listed in the profile. I think all of you guys are correct. I don't have built-in Bluetooth in mobo.

    I contacted skull candy headphones and thy have told me if I do not have built-in Bluetooth, I would need a dongle which supports at least a2dp. I do not know what the heck that means. I have a feeling I would need more than a cheap dongle.

    Anyone suggest some a2dp adapters. I searched but don't know what a2dp is so couldn't make a decision
