Find a Suitable Driver
Finding a Bluetooth driver can be very difficult. The primary reason for this difficulty is that you will not know whether a particular driver will work on your notebook. Hence the best way for you to download the driver is to go to the official HP website and look there. You will most probably find the driver in the download section. If you are running an old operating system, then you might find it difficult to find a suitable Bluetooth driver.
Check for Compatibility Issues
Sometimes there might be some compatibility issues with the Bluetooth driver. The main reason for this issue is that you run a different operating system. For instance, you might have downloaded Bluetooth drivers for Windows 7 from HP website but you might be running Windows XP in your notebook. So you should be sure to check the compatibility of the driver with your operating system.
Once you install the Bluetooth driver, your job is not over yet. You have to ensure that the driver works properly. Hence, you should test the Bluetooth connectivity by connecting a Bluetooth enabled device. If you can successfully connect with a Bluetooth device, then you have installed the right driver.
