hp probook 4530s, windows 7, bluetooth connection

Looking for help setting up bluetooth on new 4530s.  As of now the device manager does not recognize any bluetooth devices.  Am I missing a driver?

Re: hp probook 4530s, windows 7, bluetooth connection

Hi,

 

This is a list of options for your machine:

 

  • HP lc2010 HSPA Mobile Broadband
  • HP un2430 EV-DO/HSPA Mobile Broadband
  • HP hs2340 HSPA+ Mobile Broadband
  • Realtek 802.11b/g/n
  • Intel Centrino Advanced-N 802.11a/b/g/n WiFi (2 x 2) and Bluetooth 2.1+EDR Combo
  • Ralink 802.11a/b/g/n WiFi (2 x 2) and Bluetooth 3.0 + HS Combo
  • Atheros 802.11b/g/n WiFi (1 x 1) and Bluetooth 3.0 + HS Combo

As you can see, not all machines have BT. Please check on Device Manager (under Network adapters) which one is yours, we can work out from there.

 

Regards.

Hi,

 

As you can see above, your machine has NO Bluetooth at all. It ONLY has Realtek RTL8188CE 802.11b/g/n adapter. It must have one of the following three on the list to be able to have BT.

 

Regards.

So the quick solution would be a BT adapter?

Hi,

 

Looks like that or you may want to swap the card inside (use the above list).

 

Regards.
