I always thought that my probook 6470b did not have bluetooth...
Until i wanted to clean my pc and i this bluetooth stick inside my pc:
But for some reason my pc does not recognize the stick...
It seems this is an common problem but i never seem to find the information to fix it.
So is this fixable or what is the problem?
PS: Sorry for bad English (if there is some)

it should be fixable if you do this...
Why it happened...Probably had the BT turned off in the HP connection manager software during the upgrade from W7>W10.
Since the HP connection manager does not work in W10, the BT is turned off and cannot be turned on unless you:
Make a bootable Ubuntu installer.
Tutorial to make a bootable USB Ubuntu installer:
Boot from the installer and select the option to 'Try Ubuntu without installing.'
Turn on the BT in Ubuntu.
Exit Ubuntu, shut down the PC, remove the installer, restart the PC and W10 will install the BT device and after a while, will download the W10 BT driver for the BCM BT adapter.
Your other option which would involve more effort would be to reinstall W7, install the HP connection manager software, turn on the BT using the connection manager software and then upgrade back to W10.
