  2. Bluetooth Failure: Intel Wireless Bluetooth continueously refreshes Device Manager and Bluetooth not on/enabled

    After a BSOD (MEMORY_MANAGEMENT), Bluetooth no longer functions. I have a

    HP
    15-bs132nr running Windows 10 Home that has recently been RMA'd for a WD hard drive crash,
    but this seems to be unrelated as I received it approximately a month ago with no issues (this is the first BSOD it has had.)

    Some of the symptoms are as follows:

    • Intel Wireless Bluetooth continuously refreshes (flashes) the Device Manager dialog. When disabled, the updates to the window stop.
    • Action Center no longer displays the Bluetooth Quick Action, and it no longer exists in settings.

    It could be a hardware problem, but I'm hoping that it's a software issue so I don't have to RMA it again. It has sat motionless for over half the time. Device manager continuous refresh :(

    Steps taken to attempt to alleviate the problem (in order):

    1. Restart.
    2. Driver update (generic driver from Intel).
    3. Complete removal of the device and software (as recommended
      here
      ), and reinstallation. The laptop contains an
      Intel(R) Dual Band Wireless-AC 3168
      .

    Windows 10 Device Manager continually resets

    Hi Ed,

    Do you mean Device Manager refreshes the list of devices?

    If so, disconnect any peripherals connected to your PC - Printers, USB flash drives . . . etc.

    Is the list still refreshing?

    If so, check in Windows Updates in the Settings App to see if any device driver is trying to update . ..

    Device Manager keeps refreshing - due to network adapters

    Hi Timm,

    Device Manager refresh tends to happen when a new hardware is plugged in or removed, whether its a flash drive, and/or etc. This also happens when a driver is not working properly in which the Device Manager attempts to refresh to restart the said driver.
    Plausible reason is that your Network adapter requires update since all this started right after upgrading to Windows 10. If you haven't done so, you can update it by following the steps below:

    • Go to Device Manager and right click on Network Adapters.
    • On the drop down, click on "Update Driver".
    • Follow the instruction in the Update Driver Software wizard.

    Also as an alternative check if this issue persist on Safe Mode. You can go to this link for the steps on how to boot to safe
    mode. You can also go to your PC manufacturer website for the latest driver update.

    Let us know if you need further assistance.
