The original WiFi pcie half-length mini card that came with the board has gone undetected. Is there a WiFi Bluetooth combo that I can upgrade it to? Seems a lot of the cards sold are not all compatible.

You can only upgrade the internal wifi card if your PC has two antenna cables connected to the card in there now.
If not, your only option would be to install an USB dual band wifi adapter that has support for W10.
If your PC's wifi card has two antenna cables connected to it, you can probably upgrade to this dual band wifi card with bluetooth.

You should be able to find this card in used but tested and working condition on eBay at a fairly low price.
Search by the HP part number, not the model of the wifi card.

I found, bought, and installed the exact part. The WiFi is working but can't seem to detect Bluetooth. I updated driver and tried enabling Bluetooth collaboration from the device properties but no luck. Any suggestions?
Thanks again 😊

Glad to know the wifi is working but unfortunately, I have no idea why the Bluetooth isn't.
There should be a Bluetooth device manager category showing up in the device manager.
If there isn't, then there must be an incompatibility issue with the motherboard and the bluetooth, or the bluetooth portion of the wifi card is bad.
