  1. Bluetooth functionality gone after Window 10 update


    Hello--

    I have this problem repeatedly pretty much every other time Windows 10 updates (sure wish we could control when that happens, like we used to be able to on other versions, but that's another topic.)
    Windows 10 forces the update on me, then next time I boot up my computer, bluetooth is turned off under Settings>Bluetooth & Other Devices. When I look under Device Manager, Bluetooth is hidden. When I change it to show hidden devices, I can see all my bluetooth devices, but they are inactive/grayed out/faded.

    Yes, I've tried updating the drivers, to no avail. This seems to be a bug in Windows updates, because again, it happens almost every time Windows is updated.

    Any thoughts?
    TIA

    :)

  2. Bluetooth Function GONE

    Hi,

    I'm Diego Rios, an Independent Advisor willing to help other Microsoft customers.

    Regarding your question:

    Try these procedures:

    Before proceeding, we need more information to help you better.

    Did you checked whether the Bluetooth device is listed under hidden devices in Device manager?

    Have you checked whether the Bluetooth driver is listed under installed programs under Programs and features? (As you have reinstalled the Bluetooth.)

    Note:

    In device manager, click on "view" tab and select "show hidden devices" and check whether Bluetooth device/driver is listed.

    To check the drivers installed in Programs and features, Press Windows + X keys on the keyboard and select Programs and features and check whether the Bluetooth driver is installed.

    Until you get back to us with the required information, follow the below steps and check if it helps.

    Step 1:

    I would suggest you check if Bluetooth Support service is started.

    Press Windows + R keys on the keyboard, type services.msc and press OK.

    Now, find Bluetooth Support Service and start it

    Double click on the Bluetooth Support Service set the startup type as Automatic.

    Reference: I would suggest you to check whether the drivers are up to date. Refer to the below link on how to download and install the drivers in Windows 10.

    Also, I attach some link with more procedures you can try in this one didn't work:

    I hope it works,

    Best Regards,

    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

    Bluetooth in windows 10

    USB-BT211 Mini Bluetooth Dongle | Networking | ASUS Global

    • Support A2DP for Wireless Stereo Music Playback
    Edit: This is a dongle with old BT version I see now, but I'm sure you can find a Asus BT4.0 version.

    Edit2:

    @aasim1111 I have this one, it doesn't show that it supports A2DP in the specs but I think it'll work, otherwise send a mail to Asus and ask.
