Constant, endless bluetooth problems with Windows 10

By brightrenown ·
I'm really at my wits end when it comes to the constant bluetooth problems I've been having with Windows 10, sometimes things will work close to perfectly, bluetooth devices will randomly cut out and reconnect, other times they'll stop working entirely, refuse to connect, or say a connection has been established when there hasn't been. All of my drivers are up to date, I've reinstalled drivers, turned bluetooth off, made it forget and reconnect devices, but still the problems persist, and I don't know if there's a solution. I'm guessing it might be some issues with my drivers, because I've already posted about a similar issue of ram or memory failure on start up when coming out of sleep mode, and it just happening randomly to, including a few blue screens with the Driver Power State Failure message.

Any help, or suggestions though would be greatly appreciated, thank you.

I suspect...

that your issue is not Windows 10 related, but a physical, hardware issue. Likely that your Bluetooth device installed in the computer is the issue. Take the computer to a shop for evaluation or get a Bluetooth USB dongle that plugs into an available USB port (they are fairly cheap).

I have USB dongles, and they seem very hard to get to work properly, and even then they often haven't worked properly. I built my computer, I'd rather try and resolve the issue myself, but first I have to figure out what the problem is... I'm using an aorus motherboard btw, I suppose it could be an issue with this motherboard...

Right now it's going through a stage where nothing works other than my galaxy buds and bluetooth keyboard, perhaps it's an overload. Since I also use my speaker and wireless controller. Right now neither the speaker or the wireless controller will work, even when it says it's connected and recognises the device.

It's also important to note that it's always either my controller or speaker that has issues. My keyboard and headphones have never had the same issues.

What country?

by rproffitt Moderator In reply to .

I'm in the USA and computer repair shops still work on homebuilt PCs.

There's no detail in your discussion so far such as make/models of everything but the fact that only these two things don't work may be telling us these things are broken and not the PC, Windows 10 and such.

Sorry, yeah, I was supposed to delete that part of the message, but it's something I'd rather not resort to unless I have to and just can't identify the problem.

Not a for-sure test.

by rproffitt Moderator In reply to .

Sometimes I find I can try the gear on another PC to sniff out if the device is OK. This is not a for-sure test but it's as good as it gets. Besides a PC sometimes we can test with (some) smartphones.)

At the office and home.

No problem with Bluetooth.

HOWEVER we know we can't expect them to work more than a few feet away and if I had your issue I'd try the drivers from the maker then if that didn't clear it up I'd try some USB Bluetooth dongle to test if it's hardware related.

-> If your machine is having issues with memory or such, you should get that fixed too as it could be related.

Driver Issue

by Naheed Mir In reply to Constant, endless bluetoo ...

Hello,
To me, it seems a driver issue, so I will suggest first try to locate the driver
from the device manager and update it. Reboot the system and check if it
solves your issue. If not then uninstall the driver and reboot. On rebooting the
system will automatically install the best available driver.
