Windows 10, but it does not matter, the last driver and software for Win7 x64 will do, I have actually installed Power Manager already, but not sure if it is the latest version.

Re: Bluetooth 4.0/BLE/Bluetooth Low Energy devices support on Windows 7.

Are you sure you actually have the BT 4.0 module and not the 3.0? If not, what are the vendor ID and device ID? Do you have the driver installed? I don't use W7 but I think that's the one: https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/downloads/ds029104 You can also try this newer version, which is for W10, but...
