  1. Bluetooth not working after forced restart


    My laptop had a forced restart last night I'm assuming for a Windows 10 update..., and when I came down to listen to music while I pack, I was unable to connect my bluetooth headphones. When I tried to fix the problem, I noticed that ALL bluetooth related settings are now gone, and my laptop now believes that it doesn't have, nor ever had, the capability to use bluetooth. I know I'm not the first person to have this problem, but the thread just ends....


    https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/all/bluetooth-is-not-available-on-this-device/e94b38d3-a9a0-4324-bcc0-2ba3f2d09a8a


    Truth be told, I think I had another laptop of similar vintage have the same problem, but I never dug that deep into it since I was no longer using it.


    Can someone actually find a solution to this? A good number of my devices require bluetooth, and I'd like to avoid doing a factory reset in order to get the bluetooth in working order...

    :)

  2. Windows 10 infinite restart black screen


    The tutorials provided are just a list of troubleshooting steps. Use only the steps which apply to you.

    Since none of the troubleshooting steps here worked, I'd suggest you do a Clean install.

    Bluetooth not working after forced restart

    Can't get Bluetooth working...

    If your sure that its recognised properly then have a look on this links page http://www.holtmann.org/linux/bluetooth/

    The only thing i can think of to fix if it isnt recognised by linux is the following:

    Firstly you have to find out what chipset your bluetooth dongle uses.
    Secondly i think your going to have to basically compile your own kernel and include the module for the chipset that your bluetooth dongle uses.
    Thirdly depending on if you add it to the kernel or as like built in you will have to add the name of the module to a config file which is used when you boot linux.

    If the kernel doesnt have support for your bluetooth dongle then you can either try and find a different copy of the kernel which does or try and find the driver for it.

    To recompile your own kernel however requires a whole guide itself , plus different linux distro's will have different kernels with different options and slightly different config files.

    Only thing i can suggest is going to www.gentoo.org and reading through their handbook, its basically step by step setting up linux manually, in the handbook there is a page or two on recompiling your kernel for your particular configuration.
