Can you please help re-enable Bluetooth of HP ZBook G3 Studio, it has bluetooth with Wireless-AC 8260, but it is permantely disabled with bios and something, I don't see an option in bios to enable, it do see a list of options to enable/disable eg. webcam, mic, wifi etc but not bluetooth.

Thanks @Reo, you just confirmed that by screenshot, I don't have that bluetooth option in my notebook bios, it is permanently disabled by HP, like we see an option while purchasing notebook to "Permanent disable bluetooth", can we do something to show the option to re-enable it, through bois flash or something to get that option.

Open up the laptop and remove and replace the Intel 8260 WLAN card. It is secured with one screw and has two leads (which have to be connected correctly).

If the WiFI/Bluetooth card is bad???
See your WiFi and Bluetooth are a one card combo.
Your WiFi is working fine???
But I guess the Bluetooth part of the card could be bad???
Or they disabled the Bluetooth portion on the card???
If it was disabled in the BIOS then replacing the card will not do anything.
But if you want to try to replace it then use your laptops videos and not something from Youtube.
