Since upgrading from Windows 7 to Windows 10 over 3 months ago the inbuilt Bluetooth that came with the Dell XPS 8300 desktop no longer works. It does not even show up in device manager. I saw too late that Dell doesn't support this model on Windows 10, even though it was a top of the range desktop just 4 years ago. Does anyone have the same problem or, even better, have a solution please? (I've tried the suggestion of renaming the old driver file but Windows 10 says very forcibly that I don't have permission to do so.). Hi, Welcome to Microsoft Community.

Your interest in Windows 10 is much appreciated. Method 1: I would suggest you to run Hardware and devices troubleshooter and see if that helps! A) Open Control Panel. B) Write Troubleshooting in the search box right up corner and hit enter.
C) Click on Troubleshooting tab. D) Click on view all option on the upper left corner. E) Select the Hardware and Device options from the list. Usb To Serial Converter Driver For Windows 10. F) Click Next to run the Hardware and Device Troubleshooter.
If you are unable to see the Bluetooth in device manager, I would suggest you to install the Bluetooth driver from the manufacturer website. Method 2: Install the Bluetooth driver from the manufacturer’s website. You can logon to the manufacturer website and install the driver latest drivers in compatible mode. You can also refer to the article mentioned below for more information. Why isn't Windows finding my wireless device? Note: Above link applies to Windows 10 as well.

We will be glad to help you. Thanks Arul_D. I have run the Troubleshooter previously and it doesn't detect the issue. Incidentally, your Method 1 doesn't seem to apply to my installation of Win 10. There are no tabs at all in control panel. Am I missing something?

Others have reported this issue at and there doesn't seem to be a satisfactory conclusion, even using the suggested driver from Lenovo. Thanks for the post. I followed the process, but no luck. See my steps below: Lenovo Bluetooth file installs the Broadcom Bluetooth driver (see screen shot below) At this point, after I hit Finish, it then asks to install the enhanced data rate software (see the screen shot below) At this point, I chose not to install the enhanced version and restarted the computer. Still blue tooth missing from All Settings ->Devices and Device Manager and also from Control Panel ->Programs and Features. After that I started again and when I got the above stage, I chose to install Bluetooth with enhanced software.
