    My Bluetooth between my Lumia 1520 and my yoga 2 13 (Windows 8.1) will not stay connected for more than 5 seconds. I don't get an error message, simply that my devices are not connected.
    any suggestions?

    My experience with Bluetooth on W8.1 has not been the most positive experience.

    A suggestion would be to try the software supplied by the Bluetooth device maker. I found this works better than the stock Bluetooth on W8.1.

    For example, if your device is from Broadcom they have software you can download. You need to know the manufacturer before doing this. Found in Control Panel ->Hardware and Sound -> Device Manager

    I did notice something about 'laptop speaker'. Are you trying to stream music to your laptop?

    I am trying to use my laptop speaker when I have to use my mobile phone.
    I have indeed a generic windows Bluetooth driver, I am going to download the Lenovo dedicated driver and I will let you know
    Thanks

    I am using an Intel driver (Intel AC 7260) and unfortunately the issue seems to be more about the AC than the lumia config. No result by downloading the last updated driver :(
    Not the end of the world but it is the shame not to be able to use the Bluetooth. Perhaps than Windows 10 will resolve all theses issues?
    Thanks anyways
