You're very welcome.

 

If your notebook has bluetooth, the hardware will be present in the BIOS and have a setting to enable/disable it.

 

If you don't see such a setting then it doesn't have bluetooth.

 

Not having bluetooth was not unusual back then.  Maybe around 50% of HP 6470b notebooks had bluetooth.

Thanks for your reply. So there is the only way to change the wifi card to add the Bluetooth feature.? But some techies say that changing of wifi card will lose the dual-band wifi? Is that true

Hi:

 

I had given you the link to the discussion for dual band wifi cards with bluetooth that may work for your model.

 

That would be the only suggestion I can offer.
