I have recently upgraded Windows 7 to Windows 10 in my Laptop - Dell Inspiron N5010, but the Bluetooth is not working. I have tried my level best, but the Bluetooth is still not working. Can somebody assist me which Bluetooth driver will be suitable for Windows 10 and I must install.
Incidentally, Broadcom device /software is being used in Dell inspinron N5010.
Dell doesn't list any windows 10 drivers for Inspiron N5010.
However, you can check to see if Bluetooth is turn on. At the left bottom of taskbar, click on the windows icon, Settings>Devices, and then Bluetooth.
You should also check if Airplane switch is turn off. Go Settings>Network & Internet .
Use the troubleshooting tools on the computer:
1. Type troubleshooting control panel onto the [Cortana} search box, click on View All, and then Hardware And Devices. I suggest also to try some of the other tools as well.
You are not alone!! Many bluetooth drivers are not compatible with Windows 10. I think you can try to download from official website. As for me, I am used to use driver unility for Windows to download and update drivers for my Dell computer. It always can find compatible drivers for me.
