bluetooth? How? Where?


Activate the Bluetooth functions of your Compaq laptop to connect your computer to external devices such as mice, keyboards and smartphones without the aid of a wire. Bluetooth technology allows devices from different manufacturers to exchange data, communicate and share files despite differences in operating software. Bluetooth antennae can cause a significant battery drain, so they are usually turned off by default. Turn on your Bluetooth to start searching for available devices in range of your computer.

Click "Start" and type "wireless" into the "Start Search" field. Click the "HP Wireless Assistant" icon in the list of results. Click the "Turn ON" button in the "Bluetooth" section to activate the Bluetooth antenna for your Compaq laptop.
