Find Bluetooth driver for HP 280 G1 Microtower PC (POC88UT

HP Recommended

I have an HP 280 G1 Bus. PC, desktop. I have Winds.10-Pro and find that I do not have Bluetooth.  I looked in Device Mgr/Hidden. No Bluetooth. HP only seems to provide a driver for Winds. 8. I would like to use Bluetooth along with my phone.

Is there an easy way to add Bluetooth to my computer? Can I add the driver for Winds. 8 and then update it to Winds. 10?

Please help.

Thanks-

Hi:

 

The easiest thing to do would be to purchase an external usb bluetooth adapter.

 

I use this one on my HP 8200 Elite CMT running W10.  Works great. W10 will automatically install the drivers after a few minutes.

Paul:

Thank you for the response and the advice about the USB/Blue tooth adapter. I thought Bluetooth was already in Winds.10.

I found one on ebay with good reviews and free shipping. I will give it a whirl!

You're very welcome.

 

W10 has the bluetooth drivers built in for most modern bluetooth 4.0 or newer hardware versions, but without the hardware, the software is useless.
