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.)

A: Bluetooth Device won't appear in Device Manager

Are you saying you put your device in discovery mode but you can't detect it from Win 7? Do you have any other BT devices that are detected?

Model is Acer Aspire One D270.
Internal bluetooth doesn't work.
Nothing in device manager.
Fn+F3 is meant to control it, but doesn't.
May be because I've messed with some programs.

Any suggestions at all?

i have installed the correct driver for this belkin bluetooth usb dongle model: F8T012XX1

but in device manager, it has the belkin device and microsoft bluetooth enumerator, which is great. but when u get further down the list. it has a tab named "other devices" and then a subtab with "bluetooth peripheral device" which has an exclemation mark on it.

i have searched for driver software using the update service but it cant find no update.

i have looked for the name of the manufacturer but found nothing.

i then disabled the unknown device, and sent a picture to my mobile phone. which confirmed that it was not the belkin bluetooth device. so i uninstalled the unknown device, restarted the computer. then when i logged in, it said that it had found a new device and wanted me to find the CD that came with it..

i would be greatful if any1 could help me on this..

thanks in advance

I bought a new Bluetooth device today only to find out that I can't get it to connect to my desktop due to the fact that Bluetooth just flat out isn't working on my computer.

In device manager there is no blue "B" denoting that it is even installed. If I go to Devices in my settings there is no Bluetooth option in the left pane. However, if I go to Notification Center I see a Bluetooth option there (which took a bunch of work just to make that show up there), clicking on it takes me to the Devices screen where I can attempt to connect a device, however no devices are found when trying to pair a device.

I'm at a loss here, this seems to be a relatively common issue which I've been unable to find a fix for (watched a bunch of videos, read a bunch of sites claiming to have a fix). Does anyone have any definitive ideas? This is a clean Win 10 install, not an upgrade and I've already tried repairing/uninstalling/reinstalling the Intel Wireless Bluetooth software.

Hello,

I am experiencing the following issue:
All bluetooth items have desappeared from the Notificaion area, the Device Manager as well as from the service.msc.
It occured after a driver updates perfomed with the installation of the following driver from Toshiba support website:
"Bluetooth Filter Driver Package
Windows 7 - 64 Bit 17.1.1523.1299
03/02/2017
"
I did this update because I was strugguling to connect UE BOOM2 speaker and the Mbot Ranger robot.

So it is not possible for me to connect any bluetooth periferal devices anymore.
I have tryied many things to recover the bluetooth material, including drivers updates with "Driver Navigator" tool and Bios update via Toshiba website, but without any success.

I have attached the current Device Manager Screen shoot version.
I have also attached the CCleaner current screen shoot version in witch I still can see only one related Bluetooth item listed.
I have attached the Aida Hardware report of my computer hopping it could help.

Hi,

I have a MSI GT70 2OD, I have not really ever used bluetooth, so im not sure how long I have had the problem.
Running Windows 8.1 and everything updated. My computer does not seem to realize that it has bluetooth. The computer has the Killer Bigfoot Doubleshot Lan/Wlan/Btooth card. When I look in device manager there is no bluetooth, and i guess therefor no option in windows to toggle on/off bluetooth.

In the details tab of task manager there is a btvstack running and if I go to my bluetooth folder location I can run bttray.exe and have that running in details tab, however the tray icon does not appear.

I have looked quite a bit to find that it seems to be quite a common problem and not specific to MSI however cannot find a clear solution.

Any help with this would be much appreciated.

I have Vista on another drive and installed it into my laptop to test to see if the module is working. The bluetooth works fine and I am able to couple devices.

I have checked the BIOS and the setting for the Bluetooth show it present and enabled.

I do not see Bluetooth in my Windows 7 Device manager. As expected, I cannot couple devices.

The Device Manager rescans when I turn the Bluetooth on with the switch on the laptop but does not appear.

I have downloaded the Broadcom Setup Module but it does not see it either.

I know that bluetooth is there because it shows up in the Services list and I am using a wireless mouse and a wireless keyboard. However,  Bluetooth does not show up in the Device Manager List. Yesterday I tried to install a FitBit and it told me that I don't have Bluetooth, so I was unable to install it. I know I have Bluetooth but I can't see where I can either update the driver or fix it some other way. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

A:bluetooth not showing up in device manager

Hi: Didn't you have to plug in a little USB thing for the wireless and keyboard to work? They don't normally run off the PC's bluetooth radio. The USB dongle is the wireless device that works with those. All PC's with Windows have Bluetooth services, whether or not the PC actually has bluetooth hardware. If you don't see a bluetooth radios icon in the device manager listing, then your PC does not have built in bluetooth networking. The easiest thing to do would be to puchase an external usb bluetooth adapter. I use this one on my HP business desktop PC and it works for what I use it for. https://www.amazon.com/Kinivo-BTD-400-Bluetooth-4-0-USB/dp/B007Q45EF4 Since your PC is a Configured to Order (CTO) model, there are no specs that indicate whether your specific build has it or not. It could have come with built in bluetooth networking on some models. http://support.hp.com/us-en/product/HP-Pavilion-Elite-HPE-100-Desktop-PC-series/4079700/model/412462... The only other suggestion I can offer would be to enter the product number of your PC in the part surfer website at the link below, and see what parts came with your PC.  Sometimes the part surfer will give exact info, and sometimes it will list all possible options. The product number of your PC can be found on the same sticker as the serial number. http://partsurfer.hp.com/search.aspx

A:Accidently uninstall bluetooth device manager

Open Device Manager, then right click on <computername> at the very top and select 'Scan for hardware changes' from the context menu.


Failing that, go to View > Show Hidden Devices, then look for any residual Bluetooth devices. If there are any, remove them all. Right click on each and select Uninstall. Once their all removed, click 'Scan for hardware changes'

Alternatively, visit the LG Driver Downloads page and download the Bluetooth drivers for your specific model. Make sure the model number is correct to the letter.

Sorry if this is the wrong forum. Wasn't clear to me which one was correct.

I have the ASUS Rampage IV Extreme motherboard. One of its features is onboard Bluetooth.

I have it enabled in BIOS. I flashed my BIOS to the latest version, I updated my chipset to the latest driver. I installed the latest Bluetooth driver. I started Bluetooth Support Service in Windows Services.

I've tried disabling Bluetooth in BIOS then enabling it.

I have never once seen anything in my computer that hinted at Bluetooth whatsoever. No Bluetooth Radios in Device Manager or anything Bluetooth related.

I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit
ASUS Rampage IV Extreme
3930k
16 GB RAM

I have never tried to use it so I don't know if it ever worked before, but I have no system restore points set anyway, so that test isn't viable.

A:Bluetooth not working or showing up in Device Manager

It looks like a lot of people are having this problem with that motherboard.

One solution was to remove and reconnect the Bluetooth dongle from the motherboard port after installing the driver (yes it is removable, but it clips into the port).

Another was to make sure that the Bluetooth service was enabled in Windows.

Another solution that worked was posted by Necrosan over at ROG:"You need to install AI Suite II - specifically the Mobilink component - on your PC. (You can obtain the most recent version from the R4E ASUS website.)
Turn on bluetooth, pair the phone, open RC bluetooth, hit menu->devices. Choose previously paired device.
At this point it should "just work" if you are about 1-3 feet away from your computer. Any more distance than that and you likely will experience issues. (Yes, the range really does suck this bad.)

I just tested these exact instructions and they worked fine. Feel free to ask any follow up questions.
Enjoy. "
But I think that last one was only if it shows up in Device Manager but does not connect. Can't be sure.

Hi there I did a clean install of Windows 10 several months back. All is working perfectly fine. However, Bluetooth does not appear in Device Manager (including when hidden devices are shown):  This hasn't bothered me up to now, because I never had a requirement to use Bluetooth since I purchased this laptop back in 2012. However, now I do... 1)  Have tried installing the Atheros Bluetooth 8 and 8.1 drivers from Acer Support>Drivers & Manuals. Still no luck (FYI there are no Windows 10 drivers supported for V3-571) 2) Because of the above I tried installing the driver for V3-572 (some people have recommended elsewhere for other issues with Acer models not supported with W10 drivers) - unfortunately this did not work. I installed the below only.  All the above install did was update my wireless network adapter driver? Bluetooth still did not appear in device manager. Can anyone help? I must add that Bluetooth does not appear via the W10 menu either:  But greyed out Bluetooth option does appear via notifications>actions menu pop up (unable to activate, probably because there's no apparent driver according to device manager):  I know that that the obvious answer will be "Your Acer Aspire model is not supported with drivers for W10, therefore there may be some compatibility issues", but surely someone out there must have my model (or older), be using W10 and still be able to use Bluetooth? Many thanks...

I set the laptop to discover devices and set the headset to be discoverable.  After pairing the headset to my laptop, I opened my music folder and started listening.  After hearing music for about 60 seconds, the headset went silent and the music starting coming out of the speakers instead.  I then tried to 'restart' the laptop's bluetooth receiver but there was no way to do it.  It was even missing from Device Manager.  Finally, I closed the display and let it go to sleep.  When I resumed again, the bluetooth was back.  I was again able to listen to music but, after another minute or two, the device again disappeared.  I even called Alienware support.  He upgraded the BIOS and reinstalled the bluetooth driver, but it would never work.  This was because he never had me actually shut off the computer.  In other words, once the bluetooth device was gone, the only way to get it back was to sleep or shut down (power off, not just reboot) the machine. 
After these steps failed to resolve the problem, the technician set up an appointment for me to get the bluetooth adapter replaced.  This went very smoothly (great on-site support), but when I got home, the problem was still happening even with a new bluetooth module.

I have an Inspiron 1420 with built-in bluetooth.

I recently upgraded to Windows 7 from Vista and the bluetooth does not work anymore.

Symptoms:
1 Bluetooth does not appear in device manager or control panel anymore
2 The 'Radio On-Off' switch on the front of the laptop no longer controls the bluetooth
--a. Dell Quickset switch options does not let me select Bluetooth
3 The WIDCOMM bluetooth software does not even open on my computer anymore
--a. I uninstalled WIDCOMM in order to install the latest driver from Dell
--b. I cannot finish installing this driver (R140135) because it tells me to turn on the blutooth hardware using Fn+F2 (my keyboard does not have this shortcut)
4 I have tried using the BTW bluetooth patch from Dell but it does not work (R159805)


Essentially, my computer does not seem to know that there is bluetooth hardware built into it. The 'bluetooth sensor light' (next to the power and wifi lights) has remained off since I installed windows 7.

I would appreciate if someone could provide a solution to my problem. Please let me know if you require more information on my laptop

A:Bluetooth Disappeared from Device Manager After Windows 7 Upgrade

You are not going to like this answer, but it is the best and almost all would agree. You made a mistake when you upgraded, you should do a clean install. This is just the beginning of the problems.

Do it over. Do a clean install. I know you dont want to install programs, again, etc. But it is for the best. That is the only way to fix this and everything else that will happen.

I think I have Bluetooth ability but I can't seem to find any evidence of this in the Device Manager. Where would it generally be located?

Thank you

A:Where sould my Bluetooth hardware be listed in Device Manager?

BT shows up in the DM only when enabled. There should be a switch to enable it. I have it in my lappy, once enabled, it showed in my DM. Before that, no trace of it.

Also check whether you have installed the drivers. Try re-installing them.

hi - i was just playing music on my dell latitude e4300 via bluetooth to a belkin bluetooth receiver connected to stereo.

somehow the connection got dropped - during a phone call on a land line. may be irrelevant.

now, i cannot get bluetooth connection back. there is no bluetooth icon in the system tray.

i cannot find 'bluetooth' devices in start>control panel> devices
--i have 2, and both ought to be there.

i unplugged bluetooth receiver, and had win 7 search for devices to add - no luck.

sure, i can reboot, and everything will probably come back.
but i am hoping for a better answer. i don't want to have to reboot every time the bluetooth connection gets lost.

i searched the web for a little, but only found unrelated posts, or posts with no answer. THANKS!
 

A:Bluetooth connection lost, icon gone from system tray, not in device manager

bluetooth light/icon on laptop, not screen is on; no bt

ok, i rebooted, thinking the bluetooth icon would again be in system tray, with the red in the middle, showing i have bluetooth capability, but that sound is not currently being directed to bluetooth.

no icon.

the dell laptop does have bluetooth icon illuminated on the laptop, just above the function keys - not on the screen at all / not in sys tray.

the bluetooth receiver is on, is working.

'add a device' is not finding this bt thingie.

I paired Microsoft Designer Bluetooth Keyboard and Mouse to my Windows 7 Professional x64 HP ZBook 14 which is connected to my company's corporate domain. Everything worked beautifully until they had to re-image my PC to resolve a disk encryption issue. That issue is resolved, but I have had bad luck getting my keyboard and mouse to pair and remain connected ever since. However, that's not even the problem now. After troubleshooting my Bluetooth issues by installing different driver versions, pairing and un-pairing my keyboard and mouse, changing settings in Bluetooth Support Service and more, I now have two Bluetooth Peripheral devices that always appear in Device Manager. I believe these are remnants of previously paired devices, but I can not get rid of them no matter what I try. These devices do not show up in Devices and Printers, they become Bluetooth Low Energy HID Devices when I install the computer manufacturer's drivers... As I typed this I thought of installing the Intel Bluetooth drivers I had previously installed to see what would happen... Ok that made things worse. Now there are three random Bluetooth Low Energy HID Devices and none of them are actual devices that are paired to the PC. And pairing the devices does not help. If I could, I would just delete the registry keys but I can't (remember, corporate domain PC). Any help from you brilliant people would be great. Thank you!

TL;DR -
Bluetooth Peripheral Devices appear due to previously paired devices which... Read more

A:Forget/remove unpaired Bluetooth device WDM shows BT Peripheral Device

Problem solved. I'm typing this on my phone so I'm going to leave out some details.
1. Remove all non-Windows Bluetooth drivers
2. Disable all problem devices in Device Manager
3. Stop and Disable Bluetooth support service
4. Use PSexec(64).exe to launch regedit as system allowing me to delete keys
5. Delete all keys related to parent Bluetooth device (07f92671... as pictured above)
6. Uninstall Generic Bluetooth adapter and scan system to make sure devices do not return
7. Restart PC
8. Set Bluetooth support service to automatic and start it
9. Install manufacturer provided Bluetooth drivers and have an awesome day. finally

I was just working happily when my Microsoft Bluetooth Mouse just suddenly stopped working.
The Bluetooth settings page says "Bluetooth is turned off" and there are no options on the settings page or the system tray to turn Bluetooth on.
The Device Manager now has "Unknown USB device - device descriptor request failed" where it did not before.
Other devices all seem to be working fine - USB devices plugged in are being recognized and work properly. Only BT seems to be broken.
I've tried:
uninstalling the device and rebooting
installing the latest updated chipset drivers from the dell website
windows updates
pretty much all of the advice here: http ://troubleshooter.xyz/wiki/fix-usb-device-not-recognized-device-descriptor-request-failed

Any other ideas?
Thanks

A:XPS 15 9550 Bluetooth stopped working (Unknown USB device - device descriptor request failed)

So in desperation I just went into BIOS settings to see if there are any BT settings that may have become disabled. I didn't see any, and I didn't change any other settings.
After rebooting, BT and my mouse is now working again.
Something seems to be really flaky here, but hopefully this will help others with the same issue.
