I uninstalled my bluetooth driver from the device manager because it said online that if i did so, windows would automatically download whatever drivers I was missing. I did this because the option to turn bluetooth on or off was missing in the settings. I first ran the troubleshoot built in windows and it said "Device does not have bluetooth". This is not true because I know the pc i have has been working with bluetooth ever since I got it. I have tried to scan for hardware changes in the device manager and nothing happened. I tried to "Add legacy hardware" but i have not seen any HP/Intel driver for bluetooth. I went to the hp website where you can download the latest drivers but nothing happened after I ran the .exe files. I tried to run both the legacy version and the regular version but they both don't work. I have tried to use the HP support assistant but nothing there helped me with my drivers. I was looking at other solutions for this and saw that the HP recovery manager would reinstall my missing driver. I tried searching for this application but it does not exist. The adapter that came with the pc is Intel(R) Dual Band Wireless-AC 7265. I went to the Intel website to download the latest bluetooth driver (BT_21.80.0_64) but nothing happened. I'm not sure if this version does not work anymore or i installed the driver incorrectly.
