how can i turn on bluetooth on a hp dv7-1245dx? Answered

i have wireless or wifi. i also thought i had luetooth but i checked in device manager and there was nothing for bluetooth. the box said it was bluetooth capable. i was wandering if it was as simple as turning on something or do i have to add a bluetooth dongle?

Looking at the product specifications for your laptop, it would seem that there is no build-in Bluetooth. "Bluetooth capable" is just misleading terminology that's trying to make the laptop seem better, since ALL PC's with USB ports are Bluetooth capable. So, you'll have to add a dongle, they're pretty cheap nowadays anyways.
