    So looks like SMS/MMS Message Access has to do with Bluetooth
    Yes - Bios is Updated already (Latest)

    So you say "Firmware" is related to BIOS. I have checked Driver date in Firmware but its from 2006! - So for this what shall I update it with?

    SMS/MMS - There is no driver installed for it. What shall I update this with ?

    Processor - Drivers ? Never heard abt this before !

    I would not worry about it may be included in Windows 10 or that was last date of change. What was BIOS you have now by date ?
    In run command Type MSINFO32 will see this info on the first screen.

    Craig i am not really familiar with System Firmware on a Laptop, you can try going to it as described shown in your pic and right click select properties click update Drivers, then select Search Automatically. I think you might be o.k. with it the way it is though. You can always question ASUS about it, free phone support.

    Bios - As told latest, Dated: 10/27/2015. Build: 2702
    Firmware - Cant be automatically updated. And am on Custom built Desktop, not a Laptop.
    Regarding Bluetooth its clear by files - But, just to bring to your notice even after updating drivers, Bluetooth On/Off switch is missing.

    Sorry Craig desktop, i have been working with a few on Laptops is why i made the mistake. BIOS 2702 is the last for this motherboard.
    What do you mean exactly about Bluetooth on/off switch, disabling within Windows or a ASUS Software that does this or suppose to ? Bluetooth is built into this motherboard.

    Good to have this for reference the manual for your Motherboard https://www.asus.com/in/Motherboards...lpDesk_Manual/

    Within Windows check here for Bluetooth settings, from Start Menu select Settings you will find it listed as Devices

    I do not have a built in Bluetooth device, also should be listed in Action Center to the Right in the Notification area.

    Yup, The Bluetooth on/off tab is missing in windows and in Action centre - Its a well known problem if you do a google search.

    Some people suggest installing drivers OR maybe re-installing drivers will solve the problem - But in my case nothing seems to solve it.

    I was thinking that exactly as i was answering, because it pop-ups in Action center and i do not even have a Bluetooth Device connected and when i questioned here about it, it is a bug in Windows 10.

    For you even in Settings in Start Menu nothing shows at all as you said ?
    For me if i want Bluetooth i use a USB Bluetooth Dongle, but not much use for me not many Bluetooth items to use much at all.

    Nope, no ON/OFF button in Settings as well. A bug in windows which only MS can fix it!
    Thx for helping me throughout :-)

    In Windows 8.1 it showed in the notification area if Bluetooth is running, same in Windows 10. Right clicking and selecting options just allows you to remove icon there and some other settings, same in Settings in Start Menu.
    Should also show in Devices and Printers in the Control Panel, my USB Dongle does, not sure for yours.

    There was never an actual on/off i knew of even in past OS's ? This is what mine shows with a USB Bluetooth Dongle in.

    Question, does Bluetooth work o.k. ? Still buggy as Action center Bluetooth works but stays there even when removing my USB and sometimes shows there lit blue on boot up.

    How did the SATA Controller drivers installation go and enabling AHCI mode in the BIOS ?

    Well there's a switch in Win 10 to turn on/off Bluetooth. Check out image below:

    My Bluetooth works absolutely flawless with no bugs. Also AHCI mode was already activated.
