    Bluetooth stops working and I cannot turn it back on


    Bluetooth on my PC sometimes just stops working for no apparent reason, and when I try to turn it off and back on, it behaves as if it were still turned off, like so:I tried restarting the Bluetooth Support Service, but that did not change anything. I am using the Realtek Bluetooth 4.2 Adapter and my Windows is fully updated.Is this a known issue, and if so, what can I do to fix it?

    :)

    I don't have any bluetooth devices but windows turned it on!!


    Then if they are still on, try some of these steps listed below, Not all of these steps may not apply, but, step #2 and #4 should help. I have all 4 steps on myself.

    1 Go to Device manager and DISABLE Bluetooth, Do Not remove!
    2 Turn USB suspend off
    3 Set Hard Drive or SSD to Never
    4 Turn Link State Power Management off
    Settings 2 thur 4 can be found in your Power Management Settings.
    Then click on "Change settings that are currently unavailable"
    Then Reboot your Computer. This does work, may come back if you shut OFF your computer,then turn it back on, if it does, just a reboot will turn it off again.

    Bluetooth stops working and I cannot turn it back on

    I don't have any bluetooth devices but windows turned it on!!


    1. I have no bluetooth devices in devices manager.
    2,3,4. they all turned off before.

    reboot or shutdown doesn't solved it.
    i have USB wireless Mouse/Keyborad. i plug it out and use PS/2 but nothing.
    i used DISM to repair image.

    i tried everything but its not make any changes and windows still showing Bluetooth turned on.
    a few days ago it was not even showing Bluetooth in Action Center but i don't understand what happened, no devices added or changed in my PC, no software Installed or Uninstalled, not a single Settings Changed in Windows or BIOS!!!
