Upgrade to include bluetooth hardware in my HP Notebook - 17-x114dx, Product number Z4P14UA#ABA.

 Hi ! I don't have Bluetooth hardware in my HP Notebook - 17-x114dx, Product number Z4P14UA#ABA. I want to upgrade to include internal bluetooth hardware in it, because I don't like external usb bluetooth dongles. Please guide me how may I do that and what may be the appropriate hardware? It appears that the network wireless card installed is Realtek RTL8188EE 802.11 bgn Wi-Fi Adapter. Wireless connectivity 802.11b/g/n (1x1), Network interface Integrated 10/100 BASE-T Ethernet LAN.

My hp product support page is at: https://support.hp.com/us-en/product/hp-17-x100-notebook-pc/12499468/model/14121265/document/c053335....

Thank you in anticipation.

Hi:

 

You can upgrade to this model card which is both dual band AC and has bluetooth.

 

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...
