Microsoft Windows Updates Causing Bluetooth Crash


Users updating tablets and laptops to the Fall Creators Feature are losing their devices Bluetooth functions

 Microsoft has launched their new Fall Creator edition of Windows 10 and it has come with many glitches and bugs. They have released a few versions now in the attempts to fix these bugs but this last attempt seem to have caused a issue with internal Bluetooth radios.


We, at Hamar Laser, are reaching out to you in the attempts to try and stop this from happening to you. It would best at this point in time, not to update your tablets until Microsoft has released a more stable version. They are forecasting a Spring Creators version, which is slated to be released soon. We hope that this version will fix these issues

and none of you will have any problems. If you do run into the Bluetooth radio issue, please contact our Support Dept listed above and they will get you started with a repair.

Unfortunately at this time, the only solution for this problem is to try and either revert to a previous version of Windows 10 or to reinstall Windows.

" I’m a field vibration analyst with CMS, a company that provides full-service PM support. The [X-990] is the best shaft alignment system I’ve ever used, and I’ve used it to align everything from extremely small pumps to large pumps for power plants. There’s a lot I like about Hamar’s [X-990]: You can leave the heads in one position and make the vertical and horizontal moves, a big time-saving feature. It’s extremely accurate, transmits alignment data wirelessly using Bluetooth and has a very intuitive, easy-to-use software package [Couple6]. It incorporates ambient lighting correction and has a sun filter for outdoor jobs, and it uses a PC tablet instead of a dedicated display. This tool makes us really shine as reliability pros. We’ve been very happy with Hamar Laser and the [X-990]!"
