There is no 'Bluetooth' Button in settings under Devices. When I go into 'devices' all I have to choose from is 'Connected devices' to try and search for a device. My speaker will not be found by the computer.. Does my laptop have bluetooth capability? Just bought this laptop today and any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

What model wireless network adapter does your notebook have?
If you don't know, go to the device manager, click to expand the network adapters device category, and there you will find the name and model number of the wireless network adapter.
In today's notebooks the wireless and bluetooth radios are integrated onto the same circuit board.
Some model wireless cards do not have the combination wireless/bluetooth radios.
I would say that 50% of the HP consumer notebooks sold today do not come with built in bluetooth networking.
