I was able to get it to discover the speaker by resetting the bose speaker--holding the mute button for 10-12seconds. Then powering speaker back on.

Hello marykc48

 

I can assist you with getting your Bose Soundlink Mini Bluetooth Speaker to connect to your HP ENVY dv7 Notebook Computer. I would advise you to follow the steps I have outlined below and at the end you should be up and running:

 

Step 1. Go to device manager
Step 2. Right click on "Bluetooth Peripheral Device" that you want
Step 3. Select "Update Driver Software..."
Step 4. Choose "Browse my computer for driver software"
Step 5. Choose "Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer"
Step 6. Select "Ports (COM & LPT)"
Step 7. Select "Microsoft" at "Manufacturer" list
Step 8. Finally select "Standard Serial over Bluetooth link"

 

I hope this gets your Bose Speakers working and you are able to enjoy your HP ENVY dv7 again. Thank you for posting on the HP Forums. Have a great weekend!

Buy a lenovo or a laptop from a company that knows how to build one - the one I bought is the worst

I know this is old, but the OP's own answer saved me!  Resetting the Bose Sound Linke (Hold Mute buttong for 10 seconds or so, then power back on) did it.  Thanks, OP!
