how to re-install Bluetooth Support Service in Windows 8?


  • Windows Control Panel was not showing Bluetooth.

    I was tried to install Bluetooth drive but that was not recognizing bluetooth device, after attempting many tries i found that my Bluetooth Support Service is not working and corrupted Bluetooth driver are not getting uninstall. So I deleted that directly. Now Bluetooth Support Service is missing. bthsrv.dll is there but only service is missing. Please tell me how to fix this issue?

  • 1. What do you see in Device Manager? If there is a trace to vendor and model, you can use the latest driver. For example for Broadcom it is here

    2. Sometimes the problem is cause by wrong initial procedure after vanilla plain install (missing support from computer or motherboard vendor - chipset driver, etc)

    3. For older computer you need not find proper driver and/or you may find the the computer (or device) is not on compatibility list.
