Your W510 uses a Bluetooth Daughter Card (BDC-2.1) that does not currently have Windows 10 driver available.

 

What I would suggest is that you obtain a Wndows 10 compatible USB Bluetooth adapter such as the one linked below.

 

Plugable USB Bluetooth 4.0 Low Energy Micro Adapter (Windows 10, 8.1, 8, 7...)

http://www.amazon.com/Plugable-Bluetooth-Adapter-Raspberry-Compatible/dp/B009ZIILLI

 

They do not have the greatest range, but it may be your only option presently.    Just be sure that which ever one you buy is either Windows 10 plug-n-play, or comes with Windows 10 drivers.

 

 

Good luck

Check the status of your Bluetooth, as it might have been disabled after the update. Press the function key (bottom left side of your keyboard) and the F5 key at the same time. This will open your hardware wireless radio switch. Check that the Bluetooth is ON.
