Lenovo T570 Bluetooth disapeared

Q: Lenovo T570 Bluetooth disapeared

Hi guyz ) I have encountered this quite unusual problem with my notebook. I have been using it for three months including the Bluetooth services (connecting devices, sharing files, etc.) but today I came home and the icon is gone and when I try to open the settings, there is no switch button for "Turn bluetooth On|Off" and all paired devices say, that "Bluetooth is turned off". I have already checked some advices on the net saying I should reinstall my BT drivers, but when I open the Device Manager, there is not the item "Bluetooth radios". From this all it seems to me, my notebook somehow forgot it can use Bluetooth. Any advice will be appreciated )

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.)

Hello, My company recently purchased a dual 4k setup for a work station. The setup is the following:2 ThinkVision P27 monitorsLenovo ThinkPad Thunderbolt 3 DockT570 (Type: 20HA) I setup the monitors and docking station yesterday and was able to power the displays using a X1 Carbon 5th gen (i5 model type: 20HQ) thru USB-C without issue. I have a user testing out the desk now with a T570. I'm able to get one monitor to funtion at 4K and the other is running at 1080p. If you check display settings I'm unable to increase the resolution to 4K. I've updated all drivers on the T570 including the display driver and thunderbolt docking station driver this morning and the system still fails to power dual 4K. I brought back the X1 I used previously and it powers the screens normally. I checked the specs of the T570 and its identical to the X1 as far as processor is concerned and the model page claims the USB-C port on the T570 can power dual 4K. What else can I try?

Today I installed the latest win 10 updates, my laptop previously came with win 8, I had upgraded to win 10 without issue. After installing and rebooting the laptop several times, the bluetooth does not work, it does not show up in device manager. I checked in the show hidden items on control panel as well, still nothing. I cannot find bluetooth anywhere in settings anymore. It was working fine immediately before the update. I have tried the offical lenovo bluetooth drivers, neither work, after installation they simply say that no device is found for this software. Any help would be appreciated

Not sure if right section. I'm leaning towards a T570 with an Intel vPro processor (i5-U model), however for the duration of warranty and what-not, does it mean that Lenovo Support can/will use it to help me solve potential problems faster? Or is it only for the use by my IT department (which i don't have), and won't help getting assistance from Lenovo Support? Thank you in advance for shedding light on this!

We just got a 570 in today.  It's got an i5 7500u, don't know the storage capacity because it's a demo unit that was lended to us for a few weeks.  When I boot into the BIOS it doesn't show any drives.  When I use boot manager it only has PCIe LAN or Windows Boot Manager.  When selecting Windows Boot Manager nothing happens it goes back to that screen.  I can boot to WDS (where we have an image for the 570 with the 6500u) and it didn't see any volume.  I thought okay that's fine I'll boot from a Windows 10 USB.  I get the exact same issue.  I've messed around with secure boot, changed legacy and uefi settings.  The only thing I haven't done is open the machine up to see if there's even a drive inside.  Anybody have any other options I could try?

When my T570 restarts, sometimes it stacks at the logo screen like forever. I have to press the power button to kill the power off then it can be Stared normally. Another problem: The X key on my keyboard doesn?t work well, I have to press hard to input letter X. Any suggestions of this? Do I need to replace the whole keyboard?  I am kind of disappointed on Lenovo quality control, how a big company let this small issue happen...

A:Lenovo Z50-70 bluetooth issue

hi MarieNville,
 
Welcome to the Forums.
 
Can you please try the following:
 
1. Navigate to Control Panel (icon views) > Programs and Features and remove any apps that relates to Bluetooth (reboot if necessary).
 
2. When finished, the Bluetooth section will now use the inbox Bluetooth Driver as shown in the image below:
 

3. If the Bluetooth section is not present, download and run the Bluetooth Driver installer
     - this will identify the type of Bluetooth Device installed on the system (eg. Qualcom Atheros, Intel, etc.) and it will install a generic Bluetooth driver. If successful, try pairing a bluetooth device and observe.
 
If everything goes well, try installing the official bluetooth drivers by navigating to the D:\Drivers\Bluetooth folder or from the Z50-70 drivers page and observe.
 
 
Let me know how it goes.
 
Regards

I have a lenovo z70 (i7-5500u, 8gbs, 1tb+8gb) and I cant get bluetooth to work. Ever since i upgraded to windows 10, bluetooth hasnt worked. I remember bluetooth working on windows 8.1, but not 10. I tried download the drivers from lenovos site, but it just tells me "No approiate drivers to be installed". The only reason I *need* bluetooth is because I broke all my usb ports (personal problems) and I bought a bluetooth mouse. I hate touch pads, and the one on here gets in the way of my hand, so i like to have it disabled. If you could help, that would be nice.

I bought my K450 Desktop a while back on Amazon, and it said that it had bluetooth.  It doesn't seem to be built in, but a bluetooth dongle for the included keyboard and mouse may have been what it was referencing. If this was the case, how can I make the keyboard/mouse bluetooth dongle general purpose so that I can connect my mobile phone to my PC wirelessly? I've tried installing the Lenovo bluetooth drivers, but am told that no bluetooth reciever is connected to my PC. Why can't I make this usb dongle act as general purpose, rather than only working for the keyboard/mouse?

Hi Poykl, Welcome to Lenovo Community!
As per the query we understood that you are facing an issue with Bluetooth adapter on your ThinkPad T430s. This could be issue with function keys check with pressing Fn+F5 key and you will get an option to enable Bluetooth and Wifi adapter check with this option. If you are not getting the option then I think your system is not shipped with Bluetooth adapter, please provide the MTM (Machine Type Model) number which will be at the back of the system written on the white sticker so that we will confirm if the Bluetooth is shipped along with the sysetm.
Hope this helps.

A:Lenovo X200 Bluetooth Problem

Dear Silver, There is a slide switch on the left front side of the X200 which physically turns the Bluetooth off and on.  The switch is easy to accidentally move from one position to the other when you handle the machine.  It's happened to me on several occasions, and it is not a software problem, it is a mechanical one.  When you find the switch, see if it is in the proper position to allow Bluetooth to function. Regards, EB

hi Nitesh,
 
The "No Appropriate Driver to be installed" error usually pops up if the installer can't find the specific hardware ID(s) to install the necessary drivers. This may happen if you have a different type of bluetooth adapter (eg. Intel wireless +bluetooth combo)
 
Can you try the following:
1. If the Network Controller (wireless adapter) is present under Device Manager, can you install these drivers first and reboot if necessary:
    - 
 
Lenovo Energy Manager 21.4MB
 
WLAN Driver (Atheros, Broadcom, Realtek, Intel)
267MB
 
2. When finished, check if you can now see the wireless and bluetooth adapter under Device Manager (see Bluetooth and Network Adapters) and press the airplane mode key (F7) to enable these devices.
   - Sample Image
 
 
Let me know how it goes.

A:Lenovo G700 BlueTooth issue

Have you physically looked at the hardware (Wireless Card) and ran the units serial / model / part numbers thru Google to see if it does in fact have bluetooth?  I ask this as the listing you link to states the bluetooth module is "optional" rather than included as fact.
 
I would also recommend that you download your service / maintenance manual from the Lenovo Support tab of this website and look at the listing of parts for WiFi and bluetooth, which you can use as a "reference" tool to see exactly what part is in your notebook.
 
Once you have this information, post back and we will see what we can do to assist you with further troubleshooting.
 
Cheers.
