Bluetooth works if selected after/on start-up, but when put to sleep/bluetooth speaker powered down and then come back to connect, bluetooth disappears; have to reboot each time!
Have gone to device manager and requested upload of newest driver; response is that "Microsoft says has latest driver," however I also have error message: Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43)
I can't find any other drivers to replace current Reaqltek driver, so am stuck with "buggy, non-Microsoft supported driver"!

Looking forward to your reply!

Thank you for the reply. Here is the link of all the drivers of model HP Stream Notebook - 11-d077nr (ENERGY STAR): http://support.hp.com/gb-en/drivers/selfservice/HP-Stream-11-d000-Notebook-PC/7372144/model/7499079
Please check in the Device Manager. Download the Bluetooth driver from the above link, and reinstall it. Restart the computer and test the Bluetooth again.

Reloaded driver as suggested from links provided. Restarted. Bluetooth was listed under Devices within Settings, as usual. Activated bluetooth, connected speaker and listened to music for several minutes.
Put PC in sleep mode. After couple minutes reactivated/wokeup PC. Checked Devices (within Settings), no Bluetooth listed again, as before (All other categories listed but Bluetooth missing.)
Also, in lower right corner of display (where battery, wifi, volume, notifications, etc icons listed...) Bluetooth icon was listed when first reloaded driver, but after sleep mode, icon disappears as was happening earlier.
Bottomline, still having same problems with Bluetooth only showing/active after any complete PC restart, but not after PC goes into sleep mode/reactivation.

How Settings appear after Sleep...Bluetooth no longer active within Settings, and no incon in lower right corner (image 1, below);
How settings appear after Rebooting...Bluetooth active within Devices, and icon showing in lower right corner (image 2 below).

...also, when opening Device Manager, clicking on Bluetooth icon it shows that Realtek 4.0 Driver is still in place, not replace by downloaded Broadcom Driver...even though installation shows that it was successfully downloaded/installed (see below)
