Asked By 10 points N/A Posted on -

Hello experts

I have noticed some posts on the internet that propose to disable Bluetooth to stop the Windows error

Unable to start the Bluetooth stack service message.

The trouble on Windows 7 is that it is able to origin the Devices and Printers display to hang or totally lock up and also forcing to reboot. What is the reason?

Please give a solution.

“Unable To Start the Bluetooth Stack Service”


Hi Bessierromero,

First thing you should do is update your Bluetooth driver to the latest version from the manufacturer. This usually fixes the problem for most users. You can either search it from the manufacturer website and download /install the current driver, or you can run a recommended driver update program.

You can use DriveFinder to keep all Windows drivers up-to-date.

If you choose to locate and download the latest Bluetooth driver for your motherboard, be sure to manually UNINSTALL your current driver before updating.

If you are receiving the “Unable to start the Bluetooth stack service” error message and you are not using any Bluetooth devices, you can disable the Bluetooth support service. To disable the service, follow the step below:

1. Click Start button and type “services.msc” (without quotes) and then press Enter.

2. The service list will load and then locate the “Bluetooth Support Service” and double click it.

3. On the “General” tab , change the “Startup type” option to “Disabled”.

4. Click the “Apply” button then “Ok”.

NOTE:If you are having a problem with a current Bluetooth device , make sure that the Bluetooth Support Service was actually running before following the steps above to disable the service and error message.

You can try change the “Startup type” to “Automatic” and see if it fixes the problem.
