How to Uninstall or Reinstall Bluetooth driver on Windows 10/11
When there’s a faulty or corrupted Bluetooth driver on your PC, it’ll be unable to connect your Bluetooth devices or pair your phone. Even if your Bluetooth devices (such as headphones or speakers) are connected, you may have stuttering sounds, or even no sound coming out. To resolve this issue, you’ll need to reinstall your Bluetooth driver. In today’s post, we’ll show you how to reinstall the Bluetooth driver on Windows.
Before we start the procedures, please check that Bluetooth is turned on. Here’s how to do it:
- Click the Action Centre icon on the taskbar.
- If Bluetooth is turned off, click it to turn it on.
Now, proceed with the steps below.
1. Uninstall the Bluetooth driver through Device Manager
Device Manager is where you can update, disable, uninstall, or roll back your device drivers. Here’s how to uninstall the Bluetooth driver:
- On your keyboard, press the Windows logo key and X together and select Device Manager.
- Double-click to expand the category Bluetooth, right-click your Bluetooth driver, and select Uninstall device.
- If you’re prompted to uninstall your Bluetooth driver, tick the box and click the Uninstall button.
