Microsft informed me that my Aspire 5560G was upgradeble to Windows 10.
Update done and laptop is faster.
My problem is that Bluetooth has disappeared and Atheros website does not show and update in software for Windows 10
What can I do
install your windows 8 driver it will work
Spent all day trying to install Atheros Bluetooth software for Windows 8, using compatability but NO RESULT!
Acer should priovide the upgrade!!
Try to install this:
(100% trustable website)
double click the exe, let extract the files, browse inside the new folder for setup or install.exe and launch it; check if BT works.
Thnaks for all your help, however trying to download from
I got "Illegal Download Attempt"
yeah, they are under maintenance.
Thanks. Any other software available?
select windows 10 as OS and download Atheros BT drivers.
I have been to the website of Acer and Atheros and in both websites I could not find aaany WINDOWS 10 copatable drivers.
Bothy ACER and MICROSOFT should support their products.
My Acer 5560G is only 3 years old and Microsoft did NOT mention that teher would be problems with BLUETOOTH befor upodating to Windoes 10 from Windows 8.1
I hope that this thread will inspire both vendors to support their products!
Did the driver Ironfly suggested not work for you?
I have a VN7-791G model and experienced the same problem as you - no bluetooth after upgrading to Windows 10 and no bluetooth drivers for Win 10 under the ACER support page.
Have a look at this thread and maybe some of the steps may guide you to a solution.
To cut a long story short, I completely reset my laptop deleting all applicatons and data then restored to Win 8.1 and then did a clean install of Windows 10. Install the ACER provided Win 8.1 bluetooth drivers then voila everything working again.
Actually, there was a windows 10 update which I installed that disabled all bluetooth again! I had to run Troubleshooter to get it working again.
Problem is Windows and manufacturer probably haven't ironed out all the kinks yet as Windows 10 is still pretty new.
Thank you, you are awesome. wayne
