I having been trying in vain to figure out why Bluetooth and touch screen capabilities have both disappeared from the computers device manager. I notice that many others have had the same problem and it continues to be a problem. When I run Bluetooth troubleshooter, it tells me that my PC is not Bluetooth enabled. One of the selling points for me in buying this HP AIO was that it had both Bluetooth & touch screen features. Bluetooth is listed in the product specs for my system - "Integrated Bluetooth 4.s and Wireless LAN 802.11/b/g/n/ac featuring Dual-band (2.4 GHz and 5.0 GHz) 1x 1 technology". As well touch screen - "60.45 cm (23.8 in) 10-point touch-enabled diagonal widescreen full high-definition IPS-WLED-backlit edge-to-edge display (1920 x 1080)". So what caused these 2 features to disappear?? Would appreciate help on getting issue resolved. I have done many internet searches for a fix to both issues, but nothing has worked. Also, as a home user, I would appreciate clear and low-tech guidance. Thanks!

@CateH59 Welcome to HP Community!
I understand that the Bluetooth and touchscreen drivers missing from the device manager.
Try downloading Bluetooth driver from Intel website
After this drivers update reboot the notebook, check is the Bluetooth drivers are listed under device manager.
And check if it's able to pair any Bluetooth device
If the issue is not resolved, try to run BIOS update and check.
I recommend checking if the Touch is working on BIOS (Accessed by tapping on F10 while restarting the computer).
Attempt to run a test using the HP hardware diagnostic tool,
If it doesn't work on BIOS or the diagnostics tool either,
it's a hardware failure and you may need to Contact HP to set up a hardware repair service.

thanks for your suggestions, but they did not work. This computer has had bluetooth before. I think it was an update that disabled it. I tried to re-enable it by disablng the bluetooth but that made it disappear from device manager. The machine then refused to boot up with error 021a and I had to restore Win10.
Now I am unable to see bluetooth in device manager. when I run troubleshooter for bluetooth, it says, "Bluetooth is not available on this device. Please try using an external adapter to add Bluetooth capability to this computer."

I have tried all the suggestions you list in the past with no success. I finally resorted to system reset. Sadly, even that drastic measure did not restore the bluetooth or touch screen capabilities. In the end, I bought a $20 bluetooth adapter. I didn't use touch screen much anyway, so that's not a great loss. However, it is disappointing to me as a consumer paying good money for my HP AIO specifically because of features such as bluetooth and touch screen capability, only to inexplicably lose those features less than 2 years later. And I discover that other HP customers have the same problem going back a couple years, yet HP support still has no specific answer or a fix for this! Again, disappointing and not a good way to keep customers.
