Bluetooth headsets usually have a button to enter pairing mode, in this mode Bluetooth from the headset can be detected by other devices such as laptops or smartphones.

Make sure your Bluetooth Headset is in pairing mode so that it can be detected by Bluetooth, Windows 10. Usually a Bluetooth headset is accompanied by an indicator light that can be an indication whether the device is in pairing mode, paired, battery indicator, and so on.

If it is not installed or damaged, then the Bluetooth on the laptop will not be able to be used to send files and be connected to other devices. Likewise, if you install an unsuitable driver, Bluetooth will also not work.

When trying to connect a Bluetooth headset or speaker and problems such as not being able to connect or not being detected at all, then you need to also check the Bluetooth drivers on the laptop, whether they are in good condition or not.

Open Device Manager by right clicking on the Start button => selecting Device Manager.

Pay attention to whether all the drivers are in normal condition, if you see a yellow exclamation mark, it means your Bluetooth driver has a problem.

The solution is to install a new and compatible Bluetooth driver on your laptop.

Third, try using the Bluetooth Dongle (external)

The final solution is to try using an external Bluetooth on your laptop. If you have tried the two methods above, but the Bluetooth headset or Bluetooth headset still can't connect, then it can be assumed that the Bluetooth on the laptop is the problem.

Bluetooth dongle is an external Bluetooth device that can be used on a laptop or PC, you can buy it at the nearest computer shop, the price is also inexpensive. Bluetooth dongle is used by plugging it into a USB port, after which it can be used immediately.

After using external Bluetooth, try connecting your headset or speaker again, is it okay? If it means that the Bluetooth on your laptop or PC is damaged, just use this external Bluetooth so on.
