No, I just replaced the 2230 Intel with the half mini PCIe card I bought for 26usd.

The WiFi card Intel 2230 has both Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. My 7260ac also has both.

You may want to try a driver rollback or driver update from Intel's download centre.
 
Yup. To check you can run winver command.

Thanks. I am assuming you have upgraded it to Windows 10 SL then?

No, I upgraded win 8.1 to pro and then win 10 came out, so i got pro. I need some pro features like hyper v. Hence the upgrade.

Guys do any of you experience problems with bluetooth in Win10?

It was initially working in Win10 but stopped working after few days

My bluetooth never worked after I updated to 8.1. At first I thought it was driver issue and updated the driver, then got BSOD often and this driver was the culprit. So got rid of it when i rolled back to Win 8 (for different reasons). It doesn't bother me because I barely use any BT devices with my laptop.

Hmmm Thanks.

I will stick with SL version as of now. Clean installed it though!

BTW Guys, I installed all the latest drivers for Windows 10. But didn't find the Energy/Battery Management Driver. Any solutions?

Hey Guys, after 2 years of purchase, I feel my Y500's JBL speakers have degraded - both volume and quality. Not fully degraded but i can sense the difference. . How is your speakers ??
 
I originally got my laptop from the US so I got the US socket style power cord.
I need an Indian standard power cord, purchased a desi "terabyte" branded generic power cord and it lasted a month and then got burnt, thankfully the adapter was unharmed.

Which brand and from where should I buy the cord in Delhi or online.

Currently having a problem with my Y500. The past few days, there are green distorted lines (screen flickering as well) all over the screen. After adjusting the screen to a certain angle it seems fine, otherwise the issue persists. Do you think the display is damaged or would it be the case of a small loose connection ?
