Hi
Please try installing the windows 7 version of lenovo energy management and then try what Tinderbox_UK said, that is press Fn+F5.
Hope this helps

Re: Z580 no Bluetooth device detected on windows 8?

Hey Ishann,

this step you suggested is not working, In Ideapad z580 model it is not at all detecting the Hardware,with windows8. Eventhough i installed latest windows 8 Bluetooth driver i still see this issue, I am not able to turn ON or OFF by any means as my PC says there is no Bluetooth device.

Is there any other workaround for this ?

Hey Tinderbox,

Unable to install the driver as you suggested, I can see Bluetooth devices when i press FN+F5, but it remains inactive. Unable to change anything. And the issue is with Windows 8 and not windows 7. Previously in windows seven everything was working fine.>!!!!

Re: Z580 no Bluetooth device detected on windows 8?

Try the following steps (they worked for my friend who has a different model, and it would have worked for me but my registry is corrupted).

 

1. Install Lenovo Energy Management for Windows 7 if you haven't already (get rid of Win 8 EM before you install it though)

 

2.  Hit Fn + F5 and turn on Bluetooth.

 

3. Open Device Manager and look under devices for Unknown Device.

 

4. Update the driver for that device.  

 

5. Restart if prompted.

 

6. You may have to use the energy management to turn bluetooth on and off, since it might not appear under the Win 8 wireless settings.

By the way, once you use the windows 7 management software to install the driver, you can install uninstall it and install the windows 8 management software (But don't do this if you care about the battery health thing that limits your battery to 60%)
