(Bluetooth adapter/dongle not finding devices (Win8.1)

I built my first pc back in february. A month later i bought GIGABYTE Model GC-WB867D-I Bluetooth 4.0/WiFi Expansion Card with a dualshock 4. I was using ds4windows and all was fine, bluetooth wise. ds4windows changed to inputmapper and somehow the bluetooth adapter no longer was able to pick up devices let alone pair with anything.. Now i purchased Kinivo BTD-400 Bluetooth 4.0 USB Adapter believing the adapter was the issue. I was wrong. I installed and updated the bluetooth drivers and no luck. the dongle will not pick up any device(ds4 and speaker bluetooth adapter). Is there any manual configurations I need to do to enable bluetooth adapters in windows 8.1? Any tips/advice is GREATLY appreciated.
