  1. There's no switch to turn Bluetooth back on


    I haven't needed bluetooth on a rarely used laptop for a few months. I'm getting ready for a presentation and I went to check my bluetooth mouse.


    While it still shows up as a device in settings, the start:settings:devices:bluetooth & other window has "bluetooth is turned off" next to all the devices and no on/off switch. Any ideas how I get bluetooth working again?


    It's a Dell laptop.

    :)

    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 won't turn on Windows 10

    Hello Sangeeta,

    I tried the steps mentioned, but couldn't fix the problem. By the way in method 2 couldn't find Bluetooth Support Service.

    Please advice, I can't turn the bluetooth on in my laptop. It shows my list of bluetooth devices, but can't see the switch to turn it on.

    Looking forward to your assitance,

    José

    There's no switch to turn Bluetooth 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!!!
