  1. Bluetooth not working anymore


    Earlier today the option to turn Bluetooth on and off disappeared, and all of my Bluetooth devices that were connected were still paired, but were disconnected and I couldn't do anything with any of them.


    I ran the Bluetooth troubleshooter and it said I don't have Bluetooth capability and wouldn't do anything else. I searched online for a solution and here is what I've done so far:


    - I updated my Bluetooth drivers


    - I've uninstalled my Bluetooth drivers and then rebooted my computer (they didn't reinstall and they're now missing. They don't show up when I view hidden devices)


    - I updated my USB Controller drivers and then scanned for hardware changes


    - I installed the manufacturer's drivers


    - I restarted the Bluetooth Support Services


    - I checked for a new Windows update


    - As a last ditch effort I even reset my computer (I chose the option where you keep your files)


    I'm at a point where I don't know what to do, if anyone can help me out it would be greatly appreciated!

    :)

    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.

    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
