    Bluetooth Issue - Gigabyte Z87X-OC Force


    I'm having difficulties with my built-in bluetooth adapter ever since I upgraded to Windows 10.
    My motherboard is a Gigabyte Z87X-OC Force.

    The problem is that it does not show up on the toolbar or in the new fancy windows control panel. The device manager does not show any bluetooth devices either, even when I turn on "show hidden devices".

    I am using the latest driver from Gigabyte.

    Trying to pair my Logitech UE Boom with my desktop.

    Any tips will be greatly appreciated

    Assuming the Bluetooth is enabled in BIOS, then if it is not detected means the system devices are not installed/working properly. Try updating your chipset driver and it should be detected.

    Hey again and thanks for answering, but I managed to solve the problem by my own :)

    The issue was that the cable between the network card and the motherboard was not properly attached. I found this out by looking at the two LED's at the back of the network card. The WLAN was flashing but BT was not, so I checked inside and found the error.

    Probably overlooked this when I rebuilt the computer

    Thanks anyways :)
