Users need to update Realtek Bluetooth drivers for upgrading Windows 10 v1903/1909

3 min read

The hardware components of the Realtek brand have experienced driver incompatibility many times during this time. This is not a problem with Ruiqi but some models of Microsoft’s adjustment drivers. For example, there have been problems with components such as sound cards and network cards and card readers that have not worked before, and the latest confirmation is that the Realtek Bluetooth driver has compatibility issues. However, Realtek has released a new version of the Bluetooth driver for repair so that the user can upgrade, and the Bluetooth function may malfunction if the driver is not upgraded.

Microsoft is currently pushing Windows 10 Version 1909 updates to users in batches, but the company has also detected some incompatibilities. For example, if the user is using the Realtek Bluetooth legacy driver, the upgrade will be automatically blocked. At the prompt, Microsoft said that the Realtek Bluetooth driver used by the user has not fully supported Windows 10, and a new version is currently available for upgrade. Users can uninstall the Bluetooth driver or upgrade the latest driver to solve the problem, and then try the installation again to upgrade to the latest version.
