Hi:

 

I don't see any W10 Broadcom bluetooth drivers on the support page for your notebook.

 

Did you try this W10 BT driver?

 

This package contains the Broadcom Bluetooth driver for supported models that are running a supported operating system. Broadcom Bluetooth Driver is required to enable Broadcom Bluetooth devices.

I've tried sp73899 and sp74543 drivers - it didn't help. In the device manager the bluetooth is shown as: "Broadcom 20702 Bluetooth 4.0 Adapter".  I thought that the BT antenna might have unplug itself, but the BT module doesn't have any.

 

I'm 99% sure that, the reception was absolutely fine on Windows 7.
