G580 (2689) Latest Windows 8 Bluetooth Driver Doesn't Work - What Now?

2013-01-05, 9:09 AM

The original Windows 8 Bluetooth driver didn't work so I was pleased to see an updated driver for my model updated on 26th December.  

 

However, this driver doesn't work either.  I have no option for bluetooth on my machine.  Anyone found a solution?

 

Thanks.

hi eggshaped,

 

If you have installed the Bluetooth Driver v8.0.0.209/12.0.0.1800 from the Lenovo drivers & software page, can you try to install the following:

 

Bluetooth Driver (Cybertan, Liteon)

v12.0.0.1671/8.0.0.206

0pbl07w8.exe
327MB

 

If that doesn't work, try this Bluetooth® for Windows® software from.Broadcom.

 

Let me know if you get any errors.

 

 

Cheers

hi eggshaped,

theres some problem with this driver. the same problem came in my way too. i solved it this way:

 

 -@uninstall bluetooth driver and energy management driver

 -@install energy management driver for win 7 and restart

 -@turn bluetooth on by pressing Fn=F5 ( you may have to do saveral trials to bring the switch on screen)

 -@install bluetooth driver for win 8 and restart

 -@uninstall energy management driver for wiin 7 and install the same for win 8

 -@restart

 

Now you will find a bluetooth switch in devices right under the wifi switch. this worked for me. hope it works for you too.

Thank you both for your replies. However, since writing the post I found a solution on the Windows 8 thread. Someone called 'spog' found the solution which worked for me which was to reset the bios to default, then miraculously the bluetooth switch appeared!

Thanks :)
