    Win 8 Bluetooth turning on and off


    Hello,
    Recently I have bought a ASUS laptop with Windows 8. I have tried my best to find option to turn the Bluetooth ON or OFF but it doesn't seem to appear anywhere. There is WIFI, Airplane etc but no Bluetooth
    Could you please help me to resolve my problem? I would really appreciate that.
    Thanks in advance
    Regards

    Do you have the Bluetooth driver for your laptop installed?

    I am not sure. I bought the PC and all drivers were installed but maybe they missed bluetooth driver. Could you please help me to find a suitable bluetooth driver as I have searched for an hour now and cannot find anything.
    The laptop is ASUS X553M.
    Thanks a lot in advance :P

    Here's the driver download page for your laptop below. You'll need to select your OS (Windows 8.1), expand open the BlueTooth option, and look for the top Broadcom BlueTooth driver to download (global) and install.
