Installing drivers from the Internet
The very first logical step is to install Bluetooth drivers onto your HP ProBook 4720s Notebook to enable the Bluetooth hardware that resides in it. Simply log on to the HP’s official web site and search for the most recent version of the Bluetooth driver. Then download the driver from the search list. After the download is complete, double click the icon on your HP ProBook 4720S and the program will run automatically and install the Bluetooth driver. Finally, reboot your system so that the changes you made will take its effect successfully. Please bear in mind that the Bluetooth hardware might work even in the absence of a Bluetooth driver because of the presence of a default driver in the operating system of the HP ProBook 4720s notebook. But these Bluetooth drivers are not tailor made for the specific Bluetooth hardware on your HP ProBook 4720s. Hence, you should download separate Bluetooth driver from HP’s official website.
To install the Bluetooth device, all you need to do is to connect it to the Bluetooth hardware. To add, install and configure a Bluetooth device onto your HP ProBook 4720s, you must use the “Add Bluetooth Device” Wizard. And then you use the Bluetooth Devices options in 'Control Panel' to configure a Bluetooth connection.
Sometimes you can need to create or join a network between Bluetooth devices by using Personal Area Networking (PAN). It enables you to use TCP/IP networking for communication between your HP ProBook 4720s and the Bluetooth enabled device and can use it as a modem. You may transfer files over Bluetooth or add and then use a Bluetooth printer as well.
After the above-mentioned steps are completed, turning on and turning off the Bluetooth hardware can be done directly via the software interface provided by Windows. Simply right click on the Bluetooth icon in the task bar and select the relevant option. If you face any problems, please contact technical support to troubleshoot your Bluetooth software and hardware.
