Bluetooth capability

HP Recommended
Pavilion 23
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have HP Pavilion 23 Model #23-b010, running current version Windows 10;  it does Not have Bluetooth capabilities and I am inquiring if it can be updated to have "Bluetooth" via software/driver installation.  I do have bluetooth via USB slot, but would like to have it via software/driver, maybe without using this method.  Thank you.

Hi,

 

No, software and/or driver won't make it. You need a piece of hardware and you already has it (USB dongle). One option is to buy a diiferent wireless card with Bluetooth combo to replace the existing Flamingo2 BGN 1x1 card but I can't find which one your machine would support and this model was release on 3-Oct-2012 therefore the chance to upgrade wireless card is very slim to none.

 

Regards.
