  1. HP bluetooth invisible in Win10

    This is the most insane issue that HP ever designed for a Probook 6550b! The bluetooth unit can be turned OFF by their software in Win7, but be ON in the BIOS! If you left it switched off before the win10 install/upgrade, the device will NOT be found in Device Mgr, and some web fixes suggest having to go back to Win7 to turn it back on with that HP software which wont install in win10 - blocked. The easiest way is to boot to a live Linux CD or DLoad the iso from etc. Create then boot the linux install media wont affect your windows install, then use the linux bluetooth app to turn the device back ON. Takes only minutes to boot and fix this nonsense! Shutdown and reboot to win10, and voila! The bluetooth unit is available and installed - no HP proprietary software needed! For more linux tips like re-creating a winX recovery partition,

    Bluetooth not working Win10


    I upgraded from Win7 to Win10 on my Dell Inspiron N5010.

    My Bluetooth mouse which was configured before the upgrade worked instantly,

    but I am not able to search or add any other device (specially Home Theater) any more.

    I have enabled the Bluetooth support service,

    tried finding Bluetooth driver in Device Manager (no Bluetooth listed),

    also read that re-installing the driver in compatibility mode is not working for others in the community.

    Please suggest what other options are available to get things back in shape?

    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
