SVE15116EAB is an Africa/Middle East model computer.  For your convenience please check the driver support page for your laptop.  Please review the Windows 8 upgrade limitations for Middle East and African model here.  If you have any questions regarding the support page please contact Sony Middle East/ Africa.

surendra,

 

After upgrading to Windows 8 you may notice some differences in how you connect a Bluetooth device from previous versions of Windows.

 

Please review this article on how to pair a Bluetooth device in Windows 8 environment and see if that helps.

Re: BLUETOOTH NOT WORKING IN WINDOWS 8

The last time I saw this problem, we just removed the Bluetooth drivers completely and reinstalled them.  The first few tries did not work.  You might consider contacting support in your region by phone so they can help make sure you have the correct BT drivers installed for your model since this is an Africa/Mid East model.


Windows 8 will only grey this option out if it cannot properly detect a working bluetooth driver/device.

I understand that you may need the driver for an Atheros blue tooth device  please try this link.  See if this resolves your situation.  If not let me know and I can do some further research.

Re: BLUETOOTH NOT WORKING IN WINDOWS 8

sorry to hear that the Atheros blue tooth unit is not working correctly.  Have you tried this on another computer and did it work on that?  also have you tried contacting Atheros directly to see if they have any ideas on a solution?  Let me know - thanks!   Peg

Re: BLUETOOTH NOT WORKING IN WINDOWS 8

I dont think the problem is with atheros adaptor, its with the switching off and on from windows setting .

If there was physical button then this wouldnot be the problem but vaio lacks physical button .Lets hope update from windows can amend this problem.
