BlueTooth will not work on Ideapad 100


I own an Ideapad 100 (i3, geforce, win 10) which was working fine. At some point, (I believe after a windows update- not sure), the bluetooth stoppped working (secondary issue was that Windows defender and Firewall blocked the HP wireless printer, but I sovled that by adding exceptions). It will not find my phone or my other pc like it used to.

I tryed everything I could find online:

  1. Restart the service via services (windows system app)
  2. Delete, reboot, reinstall drivers
  3. Add exception to the firewall no effect!

Lenovo Support tech person suggested I restore factory settings with the OneKey Recovery, but I believe that the issue will come back, plus I can't just reinstall all my apps right now.

Any suggestions could be very helpfull.

Hello Stamatis

Thanks for using the Lenovo forums.

Definitely sounds like this will be due to the Windows update, and from what I can see, your unit does not seems to be listed on the update compatibility list as well:


I would recommend that you revert back to the previous Windows version, and observe if the issue persists or not.


If it does, then I would recommend that you attempt the factory reset on the unit.


Hope this helps, let us know how you get on.
