Hello, I have a custom built gaming PC from a few years ago. After checking the information about the motherboard, there doesn't seem to be built-in support for Bluetooth. I want to get it working via a USB to Bluetooth adapter for my headphones (which I want to use wirelessly).

The PC is running Windows 10 Enterprise. Under Bluetooth & Other Devices, there is no switch to toggle Bluetooth on or off, but there is a button for "Add Bluetooth or other device".

I've tried a cheap adapter before and it didn't work (wasn't discoverable on the PC). Is it still possible to add bluetooth to this PC?

Here's the motherboard in question:

Thanks! :)

Sure you can, either USB or PCIe but you have to find one with drivers compatible with W10.
