Symptoms

A Bluetooth Driver is a software program that allows your operating system to communicate with a Bluetooth device. Bluetooth drivers are operating system and device-specific. For example, a Bluetooth adapter requires specific drivers based on the operating system that is installed on the computer.

Bluetooth drivers, also known as a Bluetooth stack, are essential for the Bluetooth adapter on a computer to communicate with Bluetooth-enabled devices such as mobile phones, Bluetooth-enabled printers, keyboard, mice, and so on.

Cause

An incorrect, corrupt, or missing driver can affect the performance of the Bluetooth-enabled devices such as unable to recognize or identify, unable to pair, intermittent connectivity with Bluetooth-enabled devices.

Resolution

Dell Technologies recommends that you download the drivers for your Dell computer, printer, tablet, and other Dell devices from the Dell Drivers & Downloads website.

WARNING: Downloading and installing Dell-developed drivers or software from third-party or unknown sources can cause the computer or device not to work correctly, cause the computer to crash or not boot into the operating system, or in some rare instances infect the computer with virus, trojan, or other malicious software.
NOTE: Drivers for third-party or non-Dell products such as non-Dell branded printers, docking stations, webcams, scanners, monitors, and so on, must be downloaded from the device manufacturer's website.
