    Resolved [RESOLVED] Bluetooth Disappears Now & Then

    About once every 3 weeks or so when I boot up my laptop the Bluetooth icon is gone and I can't connect.
    If I go into settings it just says to turn it on.

    If I go into Device Manager and Bluetooth to enable it I get Windows was not able to enable this device. Updating drivers doesn't help.

    I run the Bluetooth troubleshooter and tell it to enable the device, apply the fix and it will say there is no capability issue but Bluetooth is turned off and that's the end of any help from Windows.

    This is for Windows 10.

    Thanks for any help on this.

    Should add that sometimes Bluetooth comes back with a restart, but not today.

    I tried all of the above suggestions and it's not working. Updated drivers thru Lenovo.

    I set to automatic turn on for Bluetooth but still don't have a button for it - on the page for Airplane mode & WiFi.

    It might come back on again as it has before, but I don't know what turns it off.
    Thanks.

    Ok, I figured it out.

    The device I was trying to connect was actually listed twice (hidden in device manager).

    Took it out and also my phone. Connected the phone via cable and Bluetooth came on.

    Not sure that the phone part was needed but it all worked out.
