Bluetooth problems on Windows 10 computers are usually caused by a combination of software and hardware issues. Sometimes multiple Bluetooth devices can cause conflicts with each other and the computer they are trying to connect to. Other times, connectivity issues can be caused by the fact that the computer needs an operating system, software, or driver update. Other common causes of Windows 10 Bluetooth errors include a broken device, incorrect settings enabled or disabled in Windows 10, and even the Bluetooth device itself being disabled.

2. Bluetooth driver

With the pilots, it’s a little tricky. If you have never downloaded and installed device-specific drivers for your system, you are probably running generic Windows drivers for Bluetooth. They may have limited your device or prevented it from working properly. Look for Bluetooth drivers specifically for your system. You will need to go to the website of the manufacturer of your laptop / desktop and search for them.

 3. Pairing a device

After checking the hardware, you should check whether a device is paired or not. Sometimes the device did not connect properly. So you should do a cross-check by linking it again. To pair a device in Windows 10:

  • Go to “Start”, type “Settings” and press the “Enter” key. This will open the Windows settings. Navigate to the “Devices> Bluetooth and other devices” path.Bluetooth Problems Windows 10

  • Connect with your device and it should be working now.
