    Bluetooth not working in my Win 8.1 lappy


    Dear All,
    I am using Win 8.1 Pro in my ASUS X552E laptop. Facing a problem with the bluetooth...previously it worked fine and i was able to connect other devices and transfer files..recently its not working. It keeps on searching devices but does not list them nor the other device can discover my lappy. I checked services.msc and the BT support service is running. Allow a device to connect option is greyed out when i right click on the BT icon in system tray. Device is working properly. Driver is qualcomm atherios and version is 8.0.1.340 Let me know if you need further info. In a nutshell, BT is no more working in my lappy. Please help.
    Thanks,
    Troy.

    Restart Bluetooth Support Service
    You may want to check if the related Services are started and running smoothly. To do this, press Windows key + R, type services.msc. Next, right click on Bluetooth Support service and select Restart.
    Right click on Bluetooth support service and select Properties and ensure that the startup type is Automatic.

    thanks for your response...the startup type was previously manual, now showing automatic (trigger start)...rebooting the lappy now...hopefully it will solve the issue...will report back.
