Sorry, I don't really know where to integrate this question.
Basically I've upgraded my old laptop to Windows 10, but I cannot connect any bluetooth device. If I remember well, the bluetooth should also appear in the Device Manager, but there's only the wifi card and the network card there. I've tried to find network card drivers for W10, but they are nowhere to be found.
I apreciate any link to a page where I can download W10 drivers for this laptop.
Are you absolutely, positively sure that you had bluetooth hardware connectivity before you downgraded? 8^) Bluetooth connectivity hardware varied on these models.
Try the Win7 bluetooth driver here to see what happens. Select notebook, aspire, 5745g, Win7-64 . Report back.
"Atheros Bluetooth suite doesn't work with this version of Windows"
That's what I got. Changing the compatibility settings didn't help
>>>Changing the compatibility settings didn't help >>>
Did you do a cold boot after changing to Win7? If that doesn't work you could try some of the suggestions in the hits from googling the keywords ""Bluetooth Suite 184.108.40.2066". The Win8 version ***allegedly*** works with Win10. Let us know how it works out if you decide to try it.
Unfortunatelly, the cold boot did nothing.
The Bluetooth Suite 220.127.116.116 drivers install, but they do nothing as well.
I still can't find the Bluetooth in the device manager and my comp. cannot detect any bluetooth device.
I might have rushed up to upgrade to W10
