    I have a Lenovo Ideapad Y580. My Bluetooth stopped working after I upgraded my laptop from windows 7 to windows 8.
    I tried installing the relevant drivers but to no avail. So, I contacted the Lenovo support team and they said that windows 8 didn't recognize my Bluetooth because it was switched off during upgradation. So, I need to downgrade to windows 7, turn on my Bluetooth and then upgrade to windows 8 again. There ain't no way i am gonna do that.
    Is there anyway to fix it without going back to windows 7?

    Hi, if there is a special key combination (e.g. FN+F2) on your laptop turn the Bluetooth ON and then try to install the correct driver

    Hi, it only turns the flight mode on or off. I tried changing the individual (WiFi and Bluetooth) settings from the Change PC Settings option, but it does not allow me to toggle the Bluetooth from there (the on screen button for Bluetooth is disabled).

    Generally the Bluetooth adapter is associated with the Wi-Fi adapter, if the Wi-Fi is off the Bluetooth usually is.

    Sometimes you can get the drivers for another system that is newer but very similar to yours. If they have a slightly newer laptop that is supported for Windows 8, try downloading the BT driver for it. Of course, its BT hardware will have to be the same model as yours.

    Of course, you can just buy a mini BT dongle for about $15 and plug it into one of your USB ports and VOILA!!!! Bluetooth. Of course, buy one that is certified for Windows 8.
