My Bluetooth was working as usual until this afternoon, where its icon disappeared and it doesn’t show anymore the activate/deactivate button in the setting options.
I tried to use the troubleshooting but it only pointed out that the problem is that my laptop can’t be connected to Bluetooth without an adaptor for it, which is ridiculous bearing in mind it has always worked until this very moment.
When this happened, I was still using windows 10 and I just updated to 11 with all the updates windows offered me, even regarding the drivers, but it’s still not working. Any idea why?
From what I could see on the internet, apparently, it could be a driver problem, but I don’t really understand much of this matter and I can’t find useful information to solve my problem.
I have often found that when trying to connect a Bluetooth device I have often had to make several attempts to connect it. It may be worth while removing all Bluetooth devices and try to connect a totally different device. As regards to Driveasy I know on their website you can pay $30 to have for one year have them automatically update all and any drivers you need on up to three devices. You have for one year no issues on drivers as you will be always on the correct drivers. At the last resort and only if it it totally acceptable to you is to reinstall Windows but only if at a last resort. Try and see if you can contact Driveasy to ask for help.
