Bluetooth on a Pavillion Elite (e9270f) upgraded to Win 8.1

I had been using a USB-based Bluetooth device on this machine as a System 7 OS. I just upgraded to Win 8.1 and the Bluetooth doesn't work with my Android phone anymore. Is HP going to release a driver for Win 8.1?  Thanks

Re: Bluetooth on a Pavillion Elite (e9270f) upgraded to Win 8.1

Hi Tony,

 

Post the hardware IDs for the Bluetooth device and we can internet search for a possible driver.  Usually the Bluetooth device manufacturer would supply the driver.  What is the make and model of the device?
