Envy x2 detachable Bluetooth keyboard

To reset an X2 detachable it is only necessary to  set the keyboard into "discovery” mode:


  • Turn off keyboard. 
  • Hold finger down on Bluetooth button until it blinks continuously.
  • Go to device manager and select "Add Device" you should see  "keyboard (ready to pair)”
  • Click on pair and let drivers install.


The keyboard is a simple Bluetooth device.  Attach it like any other Bluetooth device.  That is what the little Bluetooth key is for.

Unfortunately, HP forgot to document this and the techs get this mixed up with the notebook instructions and the tablet instructions.


Happy Bluetooth-ing.
