Bluetooth Driver is missing for Windows 10 on Lenovo X220

Q: Bluetooth Driver is missing for Windows 10 on Lenovo X220

Greetings folks, I would like to seek your prompt support to resolve my technical issue as I upgraded the Operating System of my laptop Lenovo X220 from Windows 7 to 10. Unfortunately, I couldn't locate the Bluetooth driver on my computer, so I communicated this issue to Microsoft. They just told me that Lenovo has apparently not yet released a Bluetooth Driver for Win 10. Please advise.!! Regards,

Preferred Solution: Bluetooth Driver is missing for Windows 10 on Lenovo X220

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

I ordered my X220 with Bluetooth 3.0 and it is listed in the order sheet. I am now trying to use it for the first time to connect a Bluetooth mouse, but having no success. In fact, I can't find Bluetooth anywhere in the system. There is no Bluetooth in the Control Panel and I can't find it in the Device Manager. I tried installing the 6.4.0.1500 Bluetooth device drivers from the Lenovo website. Apparently it was already installed and it asked if I wanted to do a repair installation. I selected repair installation but at the end it reported "No Bluetooth device was detected. Please make sure that your Bluetooth device is plugged in properly in order to continue". Is it missing from my X220? Is there something to enable in the BIOS (I can't find anything)? Richard BTW, my system is type 4286-CTO according to ThinkVantage Tools and the sticker on the laptop. When I go to Download Drivers & Software on the Lenovo site and use Run Auto-Detect, it displays "ThinkPad X220i (4286-CTO)" (it should be X220 not X220i). If I manually select the system instead of using auto-detect, under X220 I can select 4286 but CTO is not listed.

Is your Bluetooth LED on?  It's the second one from the left, next to the WLAN LED. You can activate Bluetooth by pressing Fn + F5.

He there,
I found a couple of similar threads, but I could not solve my problem yet.
Since a bought this laptop almost a year ago I have random system chrashes with a "Driver Power State Failure".
Sometimes it seems especially when I use lots of programms at the same time and always when the computer automatically goes to "sleep" or "poer save mode" (or when I close the lid).
What can I do to solve the problem or where is the problem exactly?

Kind regards

Strange problem I'm having, my x220 wont recieve any updates from windows. Ive re-installed multiple times, tried many fixes and nothing has worked. Most recently I just reinstalled the whole laptop and first thing I ran was the lenovo system updater, it's stuck on installing windows 7 update module kb2459268 64 bit.. when you goto windows updates it just checks for updates forever. I bought this system used and I originally installed windows 7 and updated to windows 10 which worked, but windows 10 was unsupported and the computer had issues powering off and going to/waking up from sleep. Ever since then when I reinstalled windows 7 I have had this issue. I cant work with a pc that doesn't update... Any tips greatly appreciated. Brad

I don't know what driver is the issue and what to do

I have a Lenovo Thinkpad X220 running Windows 7, and I've had it for about two years now. It worked fine up until this morning and now immediately turns off even if it is tilts slightly. When I say it turns off immediately, I mean it's like the battery has been taken out. Sometimes static will appear momentarily on screen before it turns off, and other times it won't turn off, but the entire screen just stays frozen. Also, now when I try to access websites like Facebook or Google which would normally be okay, I get a message saying that the website's security certificate is not trusted. I feel like doing a system restore would help, but since I got the laptop from school I don't have administrator privileges and cannot do so.

Below are my laptop's specs. Honestly I have no idea whether this is a hardware or software problem. If anyone has any idea what might be wrong or knows of any way to fix this, your help is much appreciated.

I was using my bluetooth mouse when it suddenly stopped. Digging into it, it looks like bluetooth is no longer working on my y410p laptop.  - I no longer have bluetooth options under All Settings > Devices (Windows 10)- Bluetooth no longer shows up in my device manager In my computer properties there's an Unknown USB Device that is listed as "Port_#0007_#Hub#0003". I'm guessing this is my bluetooth card, which is no longer working. Can comeone with a working Intel bluetooth module confirm?  The device events show a Device not started description "Device USB\VID_0000&PID_0002\... had a problem starting" My guess is that my bluetooth adapter is blown, but I'm hoping it's something that can be fixed through software.  Thanks.

Where can I find the missing drivers? 2) The second problem is probably related to the first.Everytime I start the laptop I get a usb device sound right after the startup even though I don't have anything plugged into the usb ports. So I'm guessing it's trying to connect to the peripheral devices... Did anyone here have the same problem or can help me solve this? Thank you in advance! Kind regards Jens

A:Lenovo G500s Bluetooth Peripheral Device Drivers missing

hi Jens,
 
Welcome to the Lenovo Forums.
 
Regarding your concerns:
1. From this link  that hardware ID is pointing to a Bluetooth Hands-free Audio Gateway by Broadcom.
 
Since you already installed the Bluetooth driver, can you try one of the following:
a. Navigate to the C:\Drivers\Bluetooth\Broadcom and run the setup.exe file to re-install the Broadcom Bluetooth Driver
b. Follow this guide on how to manually install the BTHENUM device driver (point the driver to the  C:\Drivers\Bluetooth\Broadcom folder).
c. Install the WIDCOMM Bluetooth Software
 
2. If you have a bluetooth headset / speaker that was previously connected before, it's possible that these devices are automatically pairing themselves to the machine everytime you restart. Try to check if installing the Bluetooth driver in problem #1 resolves the issue.
 
 
Regards

Hello,I own a stock x220 with an i7.I would like to use the Microsoft Designer Bluetooth mouse. Apparently that mouse uses bluetooth 4.0, which my laptop does not have (2.1 i believe but i am not sure and don't know how to check either). Will I be able to connect and use that mouse? Thank you












Solved!

Go to Solution.

A:X220: connecting a bluetooth 4.0 mouse

Hello,
According to the X220's hardware maintenance manual, the ThinkPad X220 contains a Bluetooth Daughter Card BDC-2.1, with FRU# (part#) of 60Y3271 or 60Y3275.  Searching on those FRU numbers reveals this page on the independent ThinkWiki site which says those cards are Bluetooth 3.0.  It also mentions that the part is likely to be swappable with a new Bluetooth 4.0 BDC card.
 
From looking at the details [age for the Microsoft Designer Bluetooth Mouse, it mentions Bluetooth Smart/Bluetooth 4.0 compatibility and specifically says "Bluetooth 4. enabled devices" in the System Requirements.
 
It is still possible that the mouse will work with the older Bluetooth 3.0 card, but just consume more power.  Or, you may need to replace the Bluetooth Daughter Card inside the X220 or use an external Bluetooth 4.0 USB adapter with it.  It would probably be best to check with Microsoft for an authoritative answer.

It was not working.I read on instructions online that I should uninstall it from "device manager" and then re-install it.So, I tried ot re-install it many times through this link:https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/au/en/products/laptops-and-netbooks/thinkpad-yoga-series-laptops/thinkp... I followed all the instruction on the README file and installed it many times (restarting my laptop many times). However, it never appeared in my "device manager" and my bluetooth still doesn't work.If anyone has experienced this problem, please helpe me out

I use a:Product name: Hp Pavilion 6500Model Number: HP Pavilion dv6521eo Entertainment Notebook PCProduct Number: GFT438EA#UUW with Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium SP1 (32-bit also known as x86) My problem is that after I had restored my computer to its original condition with the recovery discs I had created the first time I booted up my embeded Bluetooth doesnt work anymore. I had used it a lot before used the recovery discs and never had a problem. Now when I try to use the bluetooth everything works fine until I get this:  When I choose the first option I will get this:   I never got any disc with Bluetooth Peripheral Device drivers and isnt the idea of the recovery disc to make it excatly like it was when you first boot up? And at that time my bluetooth did work. I will also get this:    With following problem information: Beskrivning:

Hi, I have a G 50-80 Laptop (Broadcom for network/bluetooth & Conexant for audio) I just updated my Bluetooth drivers to the latest ones. After that, the Enhancement tab has gone missing. Now I am getting very flat and bland audio from my bluetooth speakers (Unfortunately, Dolby Digital Plus does not work for bluetooth speakers). I have tried all the following steps:1. Uninstall audio drivers and restarting my PC2. Uninstall the new bluetooth drivers and reinstall the old version drivers.... no go.3. Reset the system (reinstalled OS without loosing the personal data)4. Update audio drivers to latest version. None of the above worked. Please help.

Hi,
Recently, I disabled the Bluetooth icon in Network Connections. After that I could not enable it back as the icon is missing. I tried to search in Device Manager but there is no Bluetooth Radio item.
I tried to use C:\Windows\System32\fsquirt.exe to receive files but got an error message "The file could not be sent because the connection could not be established. Check to make sure the Bluetooth radio is plugged in."
In Services, I can see the following:
Bluetooth Device Monitor, Bluetooth Media Service, Bluetooth OBEX Service, bthserv.
How do I install back the Bluetooth Radio in Device Manager?
Any help is appreciated.

 The Bluetooth driver that is supplied from support.lenovo.com does not enable Bluetooth on the IdeaCentre A720. After installing the driver, there are no bluetooth adapters listed in the Device Manager, the software never popualtes the tasktray. I've attempted using the drivers direct from Broadcom's website, which appear to be the same driver. Neither enable bluetooth on an IdeaCentre A720. This worked previously on Windows 8.0, prior to my Windows 8.1 upgrade. Please update me on a fix or refreshed driver to properly enable bluetooth.

A:Lenovo provided Bluetooth driver for Win8.1 doesn't work on IdeaCentre A720

After upgrading to Windows 8.1, I have being unable to pair any bluetooth device with my IDEACENTRE A7 (a couple of SONY bluetooth headphones, Jabra Clipper even my iPhone 5 or iPad 4). On the Apple devices the message "incompatible device" appears, while in the others pair and disconnect almost inmediately. I was able to pair all of them prior to the Windows upgrading. Any ideas?
