How do I turn on my Bluetooth? HP Pavilion dv7

I have an HP Pavilion dv7 Model # LW176UA#ABA and it appears I have Intel® Centrino® Wireless Bluetooth® 3.0 + High Speed Devices in my hardware section, but I can not seem to find out where to turn it on?  Do I need to install something first?  Does this laptop even have bluetooth?

 

Any help would be much appreciated.

 

Thank you

Hi,

 

"Click Start , enter hp wireless in the search field, and then select HP Wireless Assistant from the list. The HP Wireless Assistant opens. The Wireless devices that are installed on your computer display."

 

This HP document has a nice explanation on how to enable, pair and configure your bluetooth device.

Install the Intel Bluetooth 3.0 HS Enabler. This version is for Windows 7 32 and 64-bit.

 

Here is a link to the web suport portal for your dv7-6123cl notebook

Did you EVER get a response?

I'm thinking of installing Blue Soleil bluetooth device, but I certainly don't want to overwrite an HP internally provided bluetooth capability

You could try to enable the Bluetooth by following these instructions.

click on Windows key-type Settings, and then Change PC settings.
click PC and devices, and click Bluetooth.
Turn Bluetooth on.


Please let me know.

 

Thanks
