RE: DELL INSPIRON N5110 15 BLUETOOTH IS NOT WORKING IN WINDOWS 8.1 x64

I have had the same problem on my Inspiron laptop  (service tag <ADMIN NOTE: Service tag removed per privacy policy>) with Windows 8.  Loaded Windows 8.1 and Bluetooth no longer works. Tried your suggestions and still will not recognize any of Bluetooth devices. It just keeps searching for a device. Another odd thing is in the device manager under bluetooth, one of my devices-my phone-shows up. Do not understand why, since it never recognizes it.  My phone does not show the Dell on it like it used to before.

This describes a working solution for Inspiron 15 3521. Perhaps will work for you. I am having the same problem and am about to try this.

Hello. I was facing the same issue that you were facing. The comments mentioned above me did not solve my problem.

Instead, i came across this site, download the bluetooth driver from here for Windows 8.1. It is the one that is around 250mb. Install it, it provides the necessary drivers and enables the laptop bluetooth! I hope this solves your issue as well
