Identify your desktop PC with the p/n found on either a sticker on the back or on the bottom of the HP Suport Assistant window.

 

If your desktop has the HP Support Assistant install then use the Discovery feature. It should give you information about the installed hardware features.

 

Desktop PCs do not generally come with a bluetooth transceiver installed. They normally require a dongle to be plugged into a USB port for bluetooth to operate.

My notebook bluetooth microsoft mouse has the dongle in a storage space on the bottom of the mouse for when it is not in  use. Various other bluetooth and wireless mice have a similar sort of storage setup.
