Upgraded my Acer Aspire V5-571P laptop to Windows 10 Home 64bit and the bluetooth does not work. Originally had Windows 8 factory installed. Looked on Acers web site for the Bluetooth driver but only came up drivers for Windows 7, 8 and 8.1. Is there a driver for Windows 10 for this laptop available yet?
FAQ & Answers
If bluetooth is entirely missing in the device manager, there are a few possible reasons.
(1) laptop hardware wifi/bluetooth killed button stuck in the off switch
(2) bios that has no option to reset (1)
Sometimes the ultra small form factor Acer desktop computers --- they use laptop motherboards BUT obviously the small form desktop computers don't have a wifi/bluetooth kill switch --- are also affected by this problem. Since there was no economic way to reset the bios, Acer simply advertised those computers as not including bluetooth.
You can try to force a bios reset by opening the computer and take the coin battery out. That will erase the CMOS settings.
If you don't do that first, the large laptop battery will continue to supply power to the CMOS --- thus not erasing the CMOS settings.
