Welcome to HP Support Forums!


I see from your post that you're having issues with the bluetooth not working on your HP Pavilion DV6 notebook after the recent Windows 10 update. No worries, I'll be glad to assist you


After reviewing your post thoroughly, I did go through the software and driver download page and found that there are drivers available only for windows 7 and Windows 8. Unfortunately there are no drivers available for Windows 10. 


In this scenario, If you want to continue using Windows 10, then you would need to rely on Windows generic drivers (Windows update) or you can try to download and install the drivers using HP Support Assistant.

To download and install HP support assistant on your PC. It should automatically download and install the latest updates and drivers for your PC.

Refer this link to know how to use HP support assistant.

If you wish you can try to revert back to the original Operating system that was shipped with the PC. In order to do that you would need to reinstall the Operating system using the recovery media which you would have created soon after purchase of this PC or if you don't have one, then you would need to contact our HP phone support to order one.
