HP Envy 15-j030eb :: Bluetooth Not Working On Notebook Running Windows 8.1 Pro
Sep 3, 2014
Bluetooth doesn't work on my notebook. I have an Envy 15-j030eb which includes Bluetooth. I'm running Windows 8.1 Pro. Notebook product number is E4N79EA
In the device manager, I don't see Bluetooth, but there is one unknown device for which there is no driver installed, I assume this is the Bluetooth.
The HP Support Assistant couldn't locate the driver, so I tried to install the MediaTec/Ralink driver (as my WiFi adapter is from MediaTec/Ralink, I assumed the Bluetooth is from the same manufacturer). This is the driver I tried to install: [URL] ....
I tried to install the driver, the installer runs but ends without any confirmation that it was completed.
I use an HP ENVY M6 notebook running Windows 8.1, 64 bit. I was seeing a lot of unwanted popups telling me I needed Java or other add ons which I don't. The computer is less than a month old. I went to that day's downloads and deleted everything I found from that day. Since then, I have no sound. I probably deleted something but I thought I was pretty careful. Can I download a sound card?
I installed windows 7 on my hp envy m7-k010dx and everything worked fine. but i got a new haerdrive and reinstalled it and all my drivers but the bluetooth doesnt seem to want to work. the system knows its there but it cant find my bluetooth mouse. do i need to reformat everything and reinstall?
I'm not able to use my finger print reader/simple pass now that I've downloaded windows 8.1 Been reading some of the other questions and difficulties people are having but haven't been able to still get it to work.
I have an HP Envy M6 1125dx 00179-60246-20486-AA0EM 64-bit Intel Core i5 Running Windows 8.1
I have HP Envy 15-171nr notebook pc installed with Windows 8.1 pro. Since past 2 to 3 days I was not able to connect my mobile phone to the laptop through bluetooth. So I removed my phone from the paired device and again tried to pair it with my laptop, but I couldn't pair it. So I tried to reinstall the bluetooth driver from HP Recovery Manager. It was notified that the installation was successful but after that there is no bluetooth icon the PC Settings where I can switch on/off bluetooth. There is no bluetooth icon in the Device Manager as well.
When I try and use the USB ports on my laptop, the system does not acknowledge the device is plugged in, nor allows the device to operate. There are no error messages and the safetly remove hardware icon does not appear. This problem began after I ran a couple of Windows Updates before shutting my computer down for the night.
The devices worked properly before but have since stopped. Multiple devices have been tried, but to no avail.
I have a HP 2000 Notebook Running Windows 8. As of last night it was working fine. Since this morning it will not turn back on. I have tried the hard reset with a removed battery. Nothing happened. No lights, no fan, no movement nor sound.
I upgraded my PC to windows 8.1 sometime back and had no issue with simplepass initially. I then suddenly could not swipe my finger and log in.
I am at a loss as to what to do because, I have depended on using this for lots of my web-sites etc. (keeping my password secure) but now I cannot use my finger print recognition to do so and have to type my master password each time.
I bought this computer for the ease of managing my security but HP has made me loose confidence in their products given the battle I am facing.
I am worried about installing any updated software as one solution suggests because I am not sure it will solve the problem without deleting my exiting password data files etc.
I am new user of hp laptop. I have an HP Spectre 13 3001el and windows 8.1; my bluetooth no longer exists! I do not see the command to enable the bluetooth settings and the network card on the bluetooth does not even appear in the device manager! I reinstalled hundreds of times the drivers for the card "intel duel band wireless AC 7260" but bluetooth still does not work! I tried to restore the initial configuration of windows but to no avail, bluetooth still does not exist!
I just tried connecting my ps3 controllers to my laptop and I realized its not detecting my bluetooth adapter. I am on a probook 470 g1 with a realtek 8188 ee wifi card, is the bluetooth adapter built into it ?
I have tried ALL drivers on the support page, realtek bluetooth driver for win 8.1 says that don't have a realtek bluetooth adapter.
Does my probook 470G1 even have bluetooth? or is this a windows 8.1 driver issue ....
I purchased an Envy 15-J108la notebook about a month ago (Windows 8.1 64). I also bought a Microsoft bluetooth mouse to use with it.
First I noticed mouse stoped working randomly, maybe 2 times a day. Sometimes it was enough to turn it off and on again to recover it, but sometimes I had to reboot.
I updated the bluetooth driver (Intel Bluetooth 4.0 Driver, 2014-01-18, Version 3.1), problem persisted but seemed to occur less frequently.
Today after installing an update for the wireless adapter the device manager reported that the Intel Bluetooth 4.0 device was faulting. Tried to dissable and re-enable but the device simply dissapeared. Now device manager reports a "Unknown USB device" with error 43, and bluetoth devices are not detected, no matter how many times I reboot.
I purchased the HP ENVY m6-n113dx laptop from Best Buy and a 240gb SATA III SSD. When I re-installed the OS from a previous license that I owned for Windows 8.1 Pro x64, I could no longer get the Bluetooth radio working. The Qualcomm Drivers work great, or at least Windows doesn't find anything wrong with them. I did not format the original hard drive that came with the laptop so I replaced it to see if the bluetooth radio was working on a previous Windows 8.1 installation to find that it works great.
The drivers that were installed on the working OS are the same drivers as the replacement OS. The radio works with the previous OS, but not with the new OS. The only difference that I can tell is in the BIOS settings where I disabled the "Security" option regarding the HP Secure Keys.
the past week my audio has not been working properly (no sounds at all). i'd be able to fix it just by uninstalling and then reinstalling the idt hd audio driver, and then it work fine, but the next day when i turn on my laptop again the same problem happens. i decided to install the update for the audio driver, thinking maybe that would fix the problem. but it didn't. same thing keeps happening, whenever i start my laptop, no audio and i have to reinstall the drivers (i have to reinstall the original driver + the update now to get the audio working).
My system is HP Envy m6 1104tx. It came with Windows 8 (64-bit) preinstalled and everything was fine until I chose to upgrade to Windows 8.1.
After checking with CompMgmt.msc I found that I had RaLink 3290 802.11 Wi-Fi adapter. Just below Network adapters I have 'Other Devices' and under it 'Bluetooth Controller' with a yellow exclamation mark on it. I tried updating the drivers, but it says "Windows was unable to install bluetooth controller' (could not find driver software for your device).
I updated almost all the possible device drivers, but this 'Bluetooth Controller' still shows a yellow exclamation on it.
Also in CompMgmt.msc I dont find 'Bluetooth' or 'Bluetooth Module' but instead there is a 'Bluetooth Profiles Devices' and inside that 'Bluetooth Profile Interface Driver'. I tried updating it but the result was again as mentioned above.
So, how do I troubleshoot this? How do I get Bluetooth work on my Envy m6?
And yes I ran HP Support Assistance, but it says everything's fine. And in reality it isn't, Bluetooth not working.
