Lenovo M5400 - Bluetooth does not work

2015-06-24, 14:37 PM

Hi All,


I've tried to pair my bluetooth headset with my M5400 notebook, but I can't seem to make it work.


I have Windows 8.1 and I initially had a generic bluetooth driver installed, so I went to the Lenovo Support site and searched for bluetooth drivers. I only found drivers as new as Windows 8, not 8.1, but there were three options. I tried the intel drivers first, but thy did not install, so I tried the Realtek drivers then. When I tried to run the  setup my computer crashed at the end of the installation (upon restart there were still no drivers installed).


Then I installed the drivers from device manager, by updating the generic driver and pointing to my realtek drivers on my hard disk. They did install, but when I try to test them I can't connect to any device, and my computer is not discoverable, although windows says it is.


Can anybody tell me which drivers they installed to make bluetooth work? And  what I did wrong in trying to make my computer discoverable?
