Bluetooth in hp 245 G5

HP Recommended
HP 245 G5
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I don't know if this laptop comes with blue tooth or not,  because every website shows BT in their specification but I can't find BT in settings and not even in Device Manager. Help me out if this device don't have BT or I have to install drivers manually for it.Ii tried almost everything - installed Brodcom  then I also tried realtek BT but nothing works.

Hi:

 

The parts list for your notebook indicates that it comes with a Realtek RTL8188EE-VJ 802.11b/g/n 1x1 Wi-Fi adapter.

 

https://partsurfer.hp.com/Search.aspx?searchText=Y9Q66PC

 

That model wifi adapter is a single band, non Bluetooth wifi adapter.

 

Your notebook does not come with built in Bluetooth.

 

You have two options...

 

1. Purchase a USB bluetooth adapter.

 

2. Upgrade the internal Realtek 8188EE wifi card to this model...

 

Realtek RTL8821CE 802.11 ac 1x1 WiFi + Bluetooth 4.2 Combo Adapter (MU-MIMO supported) HP part # L17365-005.

 

You can find this model on eBay, or Ali Express.

The card has the same throughput as the RTL8188EE card on the 2.4 GHz wifi band, but on the 5.0 GHz wifi band with an AC router, it has a maximum throughput of 433 MBPS.

 

Below is the link to the service manual, where you can find the wifi card removal and replacement procedure...
