After not being able to connect my headphones anymore I discovered that the bluetooth adapter (the onboard one) is no longer showing up. Not in the system tray, and not in Device Manager. It was working fine for several days and overnight it's gone. I haven't done any changes or updates.

I tried a system restore which didn't work. I ran Windows update. I downloaded the specific drivers from Gigabyte but they won't install as no device is found. I even re-installed Windows (clean install) but still nothing shows up.

Only solution I found was this but it didn't work either:

I'm lost. Any ideas here? The motherboard is a B550 Aorus Pro AC and it's brand new.

Thanks in advance

Looks like it's just dead, can you find it in BIOS ?

I've looked but I can't find anything related to Bluetooth in the bios. Unless it's called something else?

But does that happen, that it just suddenly dies? Pretty frustrating as I swapped the motherboard due to a defective audio port, and now now something else doesn't work and I'm back to a workaround.

Are those USB dongle adapters any good? Reliable?

Ok it disappeared again after a few days. Any other ideas? Can't be that i have to reset the BIOS every time I want to use Bluetooth.
