    Bluetooth suddenly disappeared


    My bluetooth icon suddenly disappeared. I know that it's one of the common problem, and on solution is to uninstall the bluetooth driver from the Device Manager. I did that and restarted my laptop, but windows didn't reinstall it automatically. I tried Scan for hardware changes, but nothing happened and it's still missing. I checked the show hidden devices but it's still no where to be found. Please help.

    :)

    Bluetooth Suddenly Disappeared - from settings & device manager

    Number 1: Open up the devices window (search for Device Manager, and you will get the window).

    Number 2: Open up the View Menu. When I selected "Show Hidden Devices", my Bluetooth devices and installed drivers appeared.

    Now you should see Bluetooth on the device list. Click the arrow to open up the selections:

    Number 3: I double clicked each of the 'devices' under Bluetooth (there were several on that particular computer). The message told me that the devices were'disconnected'. I right-clicked each of them and selected 'Update Driver". I chose to search the web for the updated drivers:

    It updated one driver, but Bluetooth was still disconnected.

    Number 4: Finally, I went to the web-site of the maker of that laptop and downloaded the most recent drivers to the machine. I unzipped them, and selected 'Update Drivers' again for the Bluetooth device on the machine (which unfortunately had a generic name like 'Win USB Bluetooth Device' so I wasn't sure I was selecting the correct thing).

    This time, however, I chose "Browse my computer for driver software", and chose the folder to which I unzipped the downloaded driver. The driver updated and, lo and behold, the device connected.

    I'm giving you such a detailed description because it took me a couple of hours to find where the problem lay and solve it. Hope this helps you! If I've been unclear, please let me know!

    Microsoft bluetooth mouse 3600 suddenly undetected


    I'm using a Microsoft mouse 3600 on Windows 10, all worked fine until suddenly the mouse stopped working, it disappeared from the Bluetooth detection and can't be found anymore. I need to say Windows performed an update yesterday but it still worked fine after the update. I've tried replacing batteries, updating Bluetooth driver, went one step before the updates and nothing. I obviously tried troubleshooting about anything.The mouse does work on other laptops.

    Any ideas? thanks Bluetooth suddenly disappeared :)

    Bluetooth Suddenly Disappeared - from settings & device manager

    Update:

    Going to Control Panel > All Control Panel Items > Troubleshooting > Hardware and Sound > Bluetooth

    I ran the troubleshooter and it told me my device does not have bluetooth capability. Which is wrong because I've been using it for three months.
