How to activate the bluetooth in my HP Pavilion g6 series Notebook ?

I got HP Pavilion g6 series Notebook, and am trying to pair up with a bluetooth device.

I can connect to the device via my iPhone alright.

 

Problem is that I do not know if my laptop supports bluetooth,

and if it does how to activate it.

 

I went to Control Panel\Hardware and Sound\Devices and Printers and tried add a device - no good. 

I tried searching it up in the networks - no good.

 

would appreciate your help!

Bluetooth is not usually found in the lower price point laptops.

Your exact model would be helpful, but if you had a bluetooth device in the laptop it would show up as a device in device manager. Do you have the HP wireless assistant program? It will also show if bluetooth is installed in the laptop. If you just want to sync with a mobile phone you can buy a small bluetooth usb dongle for very cheap. They are almost unnoticeable as they lie flush with the side of the laptop case.

Re: How to activate the bluetooth in my HP Pavilion g6 series Notebook ?

Hi,

Many thanks for your reply!

 

I believe that my exact model is :

  • HP Pavilion g6-1353sa 15.6" Laptop - Red

A bluetooth device does not appear in the device manager, nor in the HP connection manager (I installed it),

so I guess that the laptop does not have a built-in bluetooth support, which to be honest, I find quite odd. 

 

Thanks again,

Offer

Re: Blietooth

Hello Sizah.  What is the model number of your notebook.  This document covers where to locate it.

Hello kofmic,

 

I see that you are trying to use Bluetooth on your HP computer. I have a couple of suggestions that may help with this issue.

 

Here is a link that shows how to use the Bluetooth on a Windows 8 unit. Follow the steps in the link and let me know what happens.
