Broadcom BCM2070 Bluetooth NOT WORKING on Dell XPS L501x

Hello everybody, 

My Dell XPS L501x Bluetooth stopped working after I've updated the Windows 10 and now my bluetooth is no longer available and I can't use my Dell bluetooth mouse. 
I've contacted Dell and they told me my laptop is not compatible with Windows 10 and I have to go back to the original Windows 7 .... Went on Broadcom web site and tried to get the drivers for the bluetooth but as soon as I try to install it shows that its not compatable with my operation system ... 

Please help if you have any suggestions or a way to go around it ?

Hi ilko_dimov,

Thanks for posting.

Unfortunately the L501x is not  supported in Windows 10.

While it may work, the drivers would not be available from Dell.  Please check to see if the Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 drivers might work, but even if they do, this is still not supported by Dell either.
