Question Bluetooth has failed: cannot connect keyboard

I have a little Windows 10 Intel NUC pc and use a Logitech K810 bluetooth keyboard.

I cannot recall how exactly I set it up years ago, but I do recall going through a pairing process. As far as I am aware, my PC has a built in Bluetooth receiver.

Yesterday the keyboard stopped working.

In my device manager under Bluetooth there is the message:

STATUS_DEVICE_POWER_FAILURE
This device cannot start. (Code 10)

I have not been able to find a fix for this.

So, I plugged in an old USB bluetooth dongle and hope to pair with that. But how do I do it?

In Settings, there is no Bluetooth option. I just cannot find any way - no control panel or anything - that lets me connect the keyboard.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Settings\Devices and you should see "add bluetooth or other device" then select bluetooth from the menu and it should go from there I would presume.

Thanks - the bluetooth option is missing from the menu though! I've resorted to a good old fashioned wired keyboard in the meantime.

Very odd, I don't even have bluetooth on my laptop and I still see the bluetooth menu entries in the settings menu.
