    I've read that u need to go to manufacturers to get the right driver. But my PCs is custom built. So which piece of hardware do I need to get the correct driver for? I'm thinking motherboard, but not too sure?
    This pc was running Windows 8.1, and a fresh install was done, which included upgrading to Windows 10

    Are you searching for Bluetooth drivers for your on board Bluetooth adapter?

    Typically you just need to go to device manager and disable bluetooth. Then do a search for new hardware and it should update with the correct driver.

    Bluetooth doesn't show in device manager, unless they call it something other than Bluetooth?

    I've bought a Bluetooth keyboard that works on pc with Bluetooth 3.0. But there is no Bluetooth in device manager, unless it's in there under different name?

    So this could be couple of things.

    1) either Bluetooth drivers are not correctly installed and need to be reinstalled. Look for unknown devices under Device Manager

    2) your PC has a dedicated Bluetooth turn ON/OFF button somewhere (keyboard may be?)

    3) your Bluetooth adapter is not correctly installed in the port, disconnect and reconnect it again while your PC is still ON. Check any immediate activity in Device Manager
