  1. Bluetooth no longer works, disappeared after uninstalling the drivers


    Hi, When I was working as usual, my laptop's Bluetooth suddenly stopped working. All devices were hacked. I turned off the Bluetooth, tried to turn it on again, it didn't work. I rebooted my computer, it still doesn't work. I went to device manager, uninstalled all Bluetooth drivers. Windows restarted. Bluetooth is not working. When I try the troubleshooting tool for Bluetooth under updates and security, the result is that Bluetooth is not available on this device / device does not have Bluetooth. Obviously there must be a glitch in Windows to detect it. I do not know why. Hope someone can

    :)

  2. How do you uninstall chipset drivers?

    I'm installing a new mobo so I need to uninstall the intel 865g drivers to make way for the P35 drivers.

    Can't find any uninstall options in add/remove programs and intel chipset inst listed in driver cleaner.

    Any suggestions? *Confused Bluetooth no longer works, disappeared after uninstalling the drivers :confused:

    Bluetooth is not working — troubleshoot claims I don't even have it

    I have done all the following steps:

    - installed bluetooth driver from manufacturer
    - hit windows update
    - updated / uninstalled bluetooth items listed in Device Manager and restarted the PC
    - updated / uninstalled USB drivers listed in Device Manager and restarted the PC (USB drivers automatically came back but not bluetooth)
    - turned on and restarted all bluetooth support in services.msc
    - conducted bluetooth troubleshooting
    - conducted hardware troubleshooting

    Bluetooth disappeared after Sleep - can't Uninstall and Reinstall

    Today the Bluetooth stopped working on my Win10 laptop after it went to sleep due to low battery.
    When I searched for Bluetooth settings - I couldn't find it anywhere - as if my laptop never had Bluetooth!

    I searched online - and found that it's a relatively common problem with Win8 and Win10! After following the instructions from Microsoft support threads (such as set service automatic etc.) it didn't resolve the problem.

    One suggestion was to uninstall the device from device manager and restart - then it would search for hardware changes and install the basic driver automatically - but when I uninstalled the device and restarted - it doesn't seem to the find the Intel Bluetooth hardware anymore! I have done 'search for hardware changes' but it doesn't help either.

    Also, I am unable to uninstall the existing Bluetooth software from 'Add Remove Program' or install the driver software I downloaded from Intel's driver page.

    Would really appreciate if anyone can help to fix this issue.
    (System Info: Asus Laptop, Model: ROG-GL502VT,, Intel Core i7 6700 HQ, 16GB RAM, Nvidia GTX 970M 6GB graphics card
    OS:
    Windows 10 Home - Version 1607)

    Here are some screenshots for your reference:

    Bluetooth vanished thoroughly from Windows 10!

    This problem is very similar to this, but I don't have creator's update - so I don't have Fix Bluetooth option:
