  2. Bluetooth not working on laptop

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community.

    I would suggest you to follow the steps below and see if it helps:

    Method 1: Run Hardware Troubleshooter.

    Please follow the steps below:


    • Type “Troubleshooting” on the Windows Search bar and hit enter.

    • On the left side of the Troubleshooting window, click on “View all”

    • Click on Hardware and Devices. Please provide a password if asked for it and click ok.
    If this doesn't work, you might have to uninstall and then reinstall the latest Bluetooth drives from the manufacturer's website.

    Hope this helps. Please respond if you have further related queries.

    Regards,

  3. Bluetooth Function GONE

    Hi,

    I'm Diego Rios, an Independent Advisor willing to help other Microsoft customers.

    Regarding your question:

    Try these procedures:

    Before proceeding, we need more information to help you better.

    Did you checked whether the Bluetooth device is listed under hidden devices in Device manager?

    Have you checked whether the Bluetooth driver is listed under installed programs under Programs and features? (As you have reinstalled the Bluetooth.)

    Note:

    In device manager, click on "view" tab and select "show hidden devices" and check whether Bluetooth device/driver is listed.

    To check the drivers installed in Programs and features, Press Windows + X keys on the keyboard and select Programs and features and check whether the Bluetooth driver is installed.

    Until you get back to us with the required information, follow the below steps and check if it helps.

    Step 1:

    I would suggest you check if Bluetooth Support service is started.

    Press Windows + R keys on the keyboard, type services.msc and press OK.

    Now, find Bluetooth Support Service and start it

    Double click on the Bluetooth Support Service set the startup type as Automatic.

    Reference: I would suggest you to check whether the drivers are up to date. Refer to the below link on how to download and install the drivers in Windows 10.

    Also, I attach some link with more procedures you can try in this one didn't work:

    Hello,

    There are several factors that may cause this issue. To better assist you, we suggest that you answer the following questions:
