  2. Can't detect Bluetooth devices on Win 10

    Hi Zhenyi,

    I realize the inconvenience you are experiencing with Bluetooth issue. I will certainly help you.

    This issue might occur if the Bluetooth service is turned off, or due to missing or incompatible Bluetooth Adapter driver or incorrect Bluetooth settings.

    I suggest you to refer the below Microsoft article on "Fix connections to Bluetooth audio devices and wireless displays" and try the mentioned troubleshooting steps and see if this helps in resolving the issue.

    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us...bluetooth-audio-devices-and-wireless-displays

    If the issue still persists, try the below steps and see if this helps.

    I suggest you to install the latest Bluetooth driver from the computer manufacturer website.

    If the driver for Windows 10 is unavailable, you may install the latest driver in compatibility mode.
    Compatibility mode runs the program using settings from a previous version of Windows.

    Follow the below steps:

    • Right-click on the setup file of the driver and select
      Properties.
    • Select Compatibility tab.
    • Place a check mark next to Run this program in Compatibility mode and select
      previous the version of Windows (Windows 8) from the drop down list.
    • Let the driver install and then check the functionality.

    Write to us, if you need further assistance.

    Thank You.

  3. IVT Bluetooth incompatible

    Hi,

    Welcome to Microsoft Community and thank you for your interest in Windows 10.

    I will definitely assist you, as per your query.

    Based on your description, I would recommend you to uninstall the Bluetooth driver before you upgrade to Windows 10. Once you upgraded to Windows 10 install the Bluetooth driver form computer manufacturer and install it in compatibility mode. Follow
    the below steps.


    • Press (Windows key + X) and click on “Device Manager”.

    • Expand “Bluetooth device”.

    • Right click on the Bluetooth device and select
      un-install.

    • Once uninstall is done, restart the computer.
    Now, I would recommend you to upgrade to Windows 10. Once you are on windows 10 download the updated Bluetooth driver from manufacturer website and install it in compatibility mode and let us know the status. Follow the below steps:


    • Right-click on the setup file of the driver and select Properties.

    • Select Compatibility tab.

    • Check Run this program in Compatibility mode.

    • Let the driver install and then check the functionality.
    Note: Make sure you provide the correct model number while downloading Bluetooth driver.

    Hope this helps. If you need further assistance with Windows, let us know and will be glad to help.
