hey V570,

hard to say which, but if you have another device that has bluetooth, try that and since this is an external bluetooth dongle, get in contact with the manufacturer.

they might have updates to the bluetooth driver for that dongle.

Hello, I had the same problem. Before installing windows 10 I could connect to my phone Adroid or IOS and stream music to laptop and/or use the mouse and keyoard to control the phone. After a clean install of windows 10 I couldn't do that anymore

I fixed this problem by going on Broadcom's webpage (https://www.broadcom.com/support/bluetooth) and installing the software from there. I haven't been able to use the mouse and keyboard to control the phone, but music streaming works just fine.

I've tried this fix on a T430s and in the next days I'll try it on a T420s and on a T410s and I'll come back with updates.
