Lenovo G580 20150 Bluetooth Problem after doing Windows 10

In my Lenovo G580 I did Windows 10 and now it's not showing any kind of Bluetooth options.Previously in Windows 7,

I got that by pressing Fn+F5 but now in Windows 10  nothing opens and works.

There are no option of Bluetooth either in Device Manager or in the Windows Settings.

And there is no Bluetooth driver for Lenovo G580 20150 in Lenovo's Forum Page for Windows 10.

Please help me out, and thus I would be glad.

Did it work with Windows 7? If so, then you may need to find the right drivers on the Support Page for your specific notebook.

Also - the correct drivers depend on what hardware is installed. This can be determined by using the Device Manager applet from within Windows, or by looking at the part directly via the rear panel inspection port.

Good luck.

First step is to ID the hardware, then download the drivers for that specific hardware platform. Usually it is a Wireless card that also has Bluetooth built in.  Lets find the hardware information and then look for the right driver package that will support it.  Also - the Windows 7 driver can be used under Windows 10, using "compatablity" mode, but lets get the hardware identified first.

Once the right drivers (for the combo card) are installed, the Bluetooth radio will be discovered and then the software loaded to support it. This may take a few "reboot" cycles to happen but it will work.

My G580 has a combo card (WiFi + BT4.0) installed and getting it to work was not just a one step solution. As I said above, it requires the right drivers for the installed hardware and then a few reboot cycles to get it running.

Do you use Windows 10 on your Lenovo G580 and still run Bluetooth with Windows 7 driver?

When I had first installed Windows 10 (via free upgrade) the Drivers were from Windows 7 as the only ones available. It has been upgraded several times since (Windows Updates) and is still working today.

Yes I got the Windows 7,8,8.1 BT driver but none of them worked. Whenever I open the Bluetooth setting in Main Settings, there is no toggle switch to turn on Bluetooth.
