Unable to find a Bluetooth driver for Lenovo G560 (Windows 10)

2016-11-06, 21:35 PM

I looked through the drivers for my Lenovo G560 laptop, but I cannot find bluetooth support for 32Bit Windows 10. I need help finding one.

Welcome to the Lenovo Community !

 

Unfortunately for your model I am not finding any Windows 10 drivers that are available.  Have you tried installing the Windows 7 32 bit driver in compatibility mode? 

 

Here is a link to that driver......

Campatibility mode does not work on windows 10 for that driver. It just says that windows blocked it to prevent it from damaging my computer. It also says that programs for older versions of windows can damage it. :P

Sorry to hear that it didn't work.  If there are not any Windows 10 driver available I'm afraid your only choice is to forget about bluetooth functionality or revert back to an earlier version of Windows.

It may or may not work, but there is a Windows 10 32 bit Broadcom Bluetooth driver for some models of the B series of notebooks.  I would give it a try.  Here is the link.....

I'm not sure that using a file specifically for other computers are such a great idea. Thanks though.

You're welcome.  I understand the uncertainty.  I wasn't sure how desperate you were to get the bluetooth up and running so I thought I would mention it.
