Bluetooth disappeared on NUC7i7

Yesterday I turned on my Bluetooth headset and got no sound.  After poking around I noticed the on/off toggle had disappeared in Settings/Devices.  Driver and Support Assistant report everything up to date.  After several searches I checked for Hidden Devices in Device Manager and there were all my Bluetooth items.  I tried the suggestion of deleting the device hoping Windows 10 would bring it back to life. No luck and now no Bluetooth shows up at all in Device Manager.  I went into Visual BIOS and verified that Bluetooth was checked.  I installed the latest drivers from Intel (22.2.0) and no luck.  Uninstalled that and rolled back to 21.120.0.4 and still no luck.  Windows 10 is up to date.  I have no idea when this failure happened as I have no needed my headset in a while.  Everything else on the system is working fine. 

At this point I am out of ideas.  Please help!

I was going through the topics in this board prior to posting my question.  I spotted one which seemed unlikely to work for me....unplug the NUC for 5 minutes.  After posting, I figured what the heck, give it a try, so I shut down, unplugged, changed for dinner, reconnected, turned it on and the problem was GONE!   Sometimes the simplest answers are the correct ones.  I only wasted two hours looking for a complex solution.

Foresthill, Thank you for posting in the Intel® Communities Support.


Perfect, excellent, it is great to hear that you were able to fix the Bluetooth problem by disconnecting the Intel® NUC for a few minutes and then reconnected again. 


"Sometimes the simplest answers are the correct ones", that is right, we are really glad to know the issue got fixed.
