First time posting here. I got my laptop a week ago and the bluetooth won't work. I did a system refresh and it connected on windows 8, but once I updated to 8.1 it stopped connecting. My devices pair, connect, and then about 2 seconds later they disconnect.
I tried a system refresh. I tried uninstalling the drivers (Bluetooth device personal area network, bluetooth device RFCOMM protocol, Qualcomm atheros network adapter) and reinstalling the Atheros driver. Did not work. I have talked to 4 acer representives and the last one said I should send it back because it sounds like a hardware problem (is quality control that bad where there would be a hardware problem after a week of use?) I don't want to go through the hassle of returning it. I am convinced it is a windows 8.1 issue, as it worked with windows 8. Anyone else have this problem and/or a solution?
