    Intel Bluetooth Service stops automatically when started.


      I was looking for my bluetooth settings and they weren't there.  I went to device manager and they weren't there either (even under hidden devices).  I downloaded the most recent drivers from intel and then restarted.  They still didn't appear.  I found them in task manager (Intel(R) Wireless Bluetooth(R) iBtSiva Service), but when I try to start it in servies, I get a message "The Intel Bluetooth Service service on Local Computer started and then stopped.  Some services stop automatically if they are not in use by other services or programs."  I uninstalled the drivers, rebooted, reinstalled the drivers, rebooted.  Same story.  I tried the troubleshooting and it says everything is fine. 


      I'm running Windows 10 on an Asus UX305LA. 


      What do I try next?
