    I also have this issue after a recent windows update yesterday (the 10th) on an R5-571TG and I've tried uninstall the update and reinstalling, no dice. If anyone knows how to fix this, please let us know. Running the Bluetooth troubleshooter says that there is no bluetooth device installed and looking in the device manager shows no bluetooth devices whatsoever, so no place to even check a driver version. Windows Update shows all updates installed, and that is the official way to install drivers according to Acer... so.. nowhere to go.

    The hardware itself works just fine when running Linux from a bootable USB.. so this is definitely a Software issue.

    OK,.. after checking other posts, I found something that worked for me.. I shutdown my laptop completely (not sleep or hibernate) and turned it back on again (facepalm). I don't know if having fastboot disabled helps or not (I keep it disabled), but apparently full shutdown was required. After that, the bluetooth icons came back up and my headphones work again.
