My notebook is AH531/GFO with Windows 10 Pro. Original WiFi card on my notebook was Intel Centrino Wireless-N 1030. I replaced this card for Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260. Everything was ok for 4 months. Some days ago Bluetooth of 7260 was broken - WiFi was working. Drivers were reinstalled but didn´t solve the problem. In this fact I replaced for the old 1030. BT and WiFi works. I thought that 7260 card is broken. No errors on OS but I can´t connect my BT mouse or mobile phone.

I decided to replace card for AX3000HMW - the chinese version of AX200 for mini PCI-e. When I installed this card it suprisly me - bluetooth works but WiFI don´t. In device manager is showed code 10 as on attached screenshot. I was checking both cards - 7260 and AX200 in Dell Latitude E6520. Any problems with both cards - BT and WiFI works perfectly. I suspected the OS registry or other is failed. At the next step I replaced HDD from Dell to my AH531/GFO. Unfortunately the code 10 happend.

I have no idea what I can do to use 7260 or AX200 card. Could you take me some advices?

@Siema_CoTam my only idea is check if you need to activate the WiFi card somehow. I remember when I replaced the original WiFi card for an Intel 3160 it wouldn't work under Linux at all, and I had to activate it under MS Windows.
I don't remember the exact process, asking Auntie Google might help.

@daroca, thank you for your answer. I'm searching how to solve problem with AX200.

I repaired BT in 7260 by app "Bluetooth Tools Command Prompt" by deleting all paired devices. BT and WiFi works on 7260 again.
