Can't seem to find Bluetooth Device

2017-04-12, 9:34 AM

Hello! Recently i purchased a bluetooth speaker, so I wanted to connect it to my Lenovo P50. According to specifications, Lenovo P50 comes with some integrated Bluetooth 4.1 or 4.2. I installed the recommended drivers from Lenovo website but didn't worked. Then i went to Intel website and found the exact model of the hardware and downloaded their driver, but again there is no Bluetooth device available in either "devices" or "device manager" of windows 10 Anniversary Edition with all updates. I've also tried Speccy to inspect the hardware, but again no mention of bluetooth whatsoever. Also, I've checked windows Services and made sure that all Bluetooth related services are running. Do you have any suggestion on what else can I do?

 

Is there any chance that bluetooth is disabled in bios? btw, i have some bios related problem too, so I cannot access the bios settings (they are all greyed out due to some security features i enabled and now i am locked out).

 

thanks

Solved! See the solution

There is an option in BIOS to disable/enable bluetooth, however, I would think this would be enabled by default but might be worth checking.  This can be found under the "Security" menu tab, "I/O Port Access" menu option, "Bluetooth".

Ah! Found it! Also, I managed to unlock my BIOS after 3 months trying to do so! Finaly managed to connect to my new bluetooth speaker and everything is fine!
