  1. Bluetooth missing?


    I have been using Bluetooth headphones for the past few years with my PC and had no issues until recently.Bluetooth appears to be “turned off” but there is no option to turn it on.Bluetooth troubleshooter returns a message that says my device does not have Bluetooth capabilities.Bluetooth does not consistently appear in Device Manager; when it shows up it has a Code 45 hardware is not connected.I have reinstalled drivers multiple times and reset my PC, but the Bluetooth issues still remain. Is there anything else I can do to solve this myself?For reference, I am running Windows 10.0.19043 on

    :)

    Bluetooth missing?

    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
