The DV series laptopis not supported for Windows 7, HP decided the model is too old to support it....however since Vista and Windows 7 share a common platform, try searching for the Vista driver. Make sure to put into the search parameters either a 32 bit or 64 bit operating system. I have a lot of success using the Vista drivers for the DV6000 and DV9000 series laptops with Windows 7.
copy and paste the entire link below to your browsers address bar. Choose the operating system from the drop down menu, search for the driver from the list.
hi rlgupta2006, the reason being is that our bluetooth drivers were designed for windows vista and xp. You can try this link for higher Y series versions so that the bluetooth would work on windows 7.
click this link:
download the software and click I agree in the license agreement.
Hope this help...
You will probably have to look on the net for a driver that is compatible with windows 7 for your bluetooth device. If you cant find one designed for windows 7 you could try a driver made for vista as many vista drivers work for windows 7 devices as well
Make sure that you installed both the driver and a bluetooth manager software like : Bluesoleil (http://www.bluesoleil.com/) or Widcomm. Windows Vista has an In-Built manager while Vista doesn't have so you have to manually install one. If you dont know how to contact me at any time.
