    Can't activate Bluetooth.


    Hello, I recently bought some wireless headphones, I tried to connect then using ''Add Device'' and I couldn't detect my wireless headphones but then, I found out that I can't turn on my Bluetooth.
    My Bluetooth device is Bluetooth Audio Bus Device. I would like an answer as soon as possible.
    Let me show you a screenshot:

    I don't think so. At first, It didn't showed any Bluetooth option so I downloaded a device from ASUS to see if it worked but it seens it doesn't, I just got the switch to turn it on or off but still doesn't work. But if I don't have one, then how can I get it ?
    Thanks for reply.

    Press Start and X then click Device Manager. Look for Bluetooth Devices. If it is not there then you don't have one.

    You can see there, I didn't have one before, the Bluetooth that you're seeing is the one I downloaded from ASUS.

    Ok it appears you have no bluetooth adapter. You can get them from many different stores. I got mine from microcenter for 12$

    And instead of saying thanks, you can add to my reputation by clicking the thumbs up on the bottom of any of my replys

    Think OP meant do you have a USB Bluetooth adapter, like this, cause Windows 8 already has the drivers for Bluetooth, so you need USB adapter
    Amazon.com: ASUS USB Adapter with Bluetooth (USB-BT400): Electronics

    Unless the system has one built in, usually with Laptops or Tablets.
