As I understand the blueTooth devices aren't being recognized though you have updated the drivers for the same, 
Don't worry and just follow the steps mentioned below, by the end of it everything should be back to normal,

Good Luck.


Let's start with the Hard Reset: (To release any excessive static causing the issue).

This method works for a variety of Driver connection and ‘stuck’ program issues.

  • Shut down the computer
  • Disconnect all external devices - everything.
  • Remove AC power and the battery
  • Press and hold power button for at least 30 seconds
  • Reconnect the AC power (only),
  • Power on > Login
  • Next time you shut down the system, reinstall battery and follow the below steps.
