Does my HP Pavilion g7-2275dx Notebook PC have bluetooth capability?

Product Name: HP Pavilion g7-2275dx Notebook
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 8 (64-bit)

I'm trying to use a bluetooth speaker with my  HP Pavilion g7-2275dx Notebook PC but I'm not sure if I have the ablility to to do that? I Have the ralink bluetooth stack and and an atheros bluetooth driver but I'm not sure how to use them.

 

Also, I sometimes stumble onto a page that has a 'bluetooth switch' but it'snot highlighted and I can't turn it on. Can someone tell me where where that screen is and how I can use Bluetooth with my pc?

 

I can't plug outboard speakers into the jack because it's damaged and doesn't connect because someone accidentally kicked the speaker cable and damaged the the jack.

 

Thanks

Hi:

 

Below is the link to the product specs page for your notebook.

 

It does not come with built in bluetooth networking, or that feature would have been listed along with the 1x1 802.11b/g/n WLAN Wireless Connectivity specification.

 

The easiest thing you can do would be to purchase an external USB bluetooth adapter.

 

You can also try and replace the internal wireless card with one listed in the service manual for your notebook that is also a combination wireless/bluetooth card.

 

The card must be listed in the service manual and it must have the HP part number on it or it won't work.

 

Because your notebook has an AMD processor, you cannot install any Intel wireless cards if any are listed in the manual.
