The Broadcom Azure Wifi Bluetooth Combo mini PCI-E card which comes with the Notebook just died. I am thinking of taking the opportunity to upgrade the notebook to enable Wifi 6 support. Can anyone advise if I can just buy any mini PCI-E Combo card which support Wifi 6 and Bluetooth 5.1 to plug it in?

It should work.
This forum member just installed one in an older notebook than yours.
Where you can find a HMC form factor AX wifi card, that I do not know, but the person on that link told me that he got the card from China Taobao.

Had finally received the Wifi 6 AX200 Mini PCIE card. Was so excited! Opened up my notebook, take out the old card and put this in. Mind already prepared to do a speed test to see how is the performance. And when power up, nothing happened!! The notebook is not detecting the new WiFi 6 card at all. Checked Deviice Manager and there is no "Unknow Device" listed, and no Wifi Card listed as well. Went into BIOS, tried doing a Diagnostic, and the software reported no Bluetooth and Wireless module detect. Now I start wondering if my original card actually may be still working, just some how not detected by the notebok.
The original wifi card had been working flawlessly all along. Then one day suddenly it just totally disappeared from my notebook. So I assumed it could be due to the Wifi Combo card that had gone faulty. Sigh...
Now I need some advise what could be the reason why my notebook is not detecting the Wifi Card at all. Anyone can help, please?

Since the original wifi card also has disappeared from the device manager, unfortunately I don't know what the problem could be.
Normally you would assume the original card died but since the AX200 doesn't show up either, something else must have happened for which I have no explanation.
