How can i activate the bluetooth on my HP probook 6450b

Hello, it's pretty easy.
Go to "Device manager". Right click on the Bluetooth and click enable.
If it wasn't installed properly, it wouldn't work. Then you need to go to your pc manufacturer website, locate your product and download the right Bluetooth software.
Good luck..

Battery for HP ProBook 6450b?

OMG DON'T TOUCH CHINESE BATTERIES!! Generally they just recycle old ones and stuff them into new cases! I've learned this from 2 costly experiences where 'new' chinese batteries have lasted about 2 months before dying. If you want cheap, reliable ones hunt around on ebay for ORIGINAL MANUFACTURER (HP Label) , SECOND HAND ones with guaranteed minimum life of say 1.5 hours.
Good Luck.

Battery for HP ProBook 6450b?

Inexpensive batteries are inexpensive for a reason. At best they will not work properly in your laptop, at worst, they could be a fire hazard. Cheap copies, bootlegs, will not last long, the connection may be different causing them to not interface with the Laptop. Pain and Heartache. Look here for a price comparison :,or.r_qf.&bvm=bv.47534661,d.dmQ&fp=cf719c32e5effe38&biw=1188&bih=549

Where's the button to enable wireless on the HP ProBook 6450b

You probably don't have a switch. You need to use the wireless application you will find in the control panel or the Fn key-special function key combo that is made for the wireless.
Hold down the FN key and then look up at the special function keys and see which one has a picture of an antenna. That combo will turn the wireless on or off.

My HP ProBook 6440b inbuilt camera is not functioning at all. Actually, it was downgraded to Windows XP from Windows 7 .I tried to download and installed the webcam drivers. Still it is not working. But,...

It is possible that the camera only runs on Windows 7. Re-upgrade to Windows 7. It is much better than XP anyway, and your computer is more than powerful enough to handle it.

My webcam is not working and the drivers doesn't help. It only says that I don't have any video capture hardware but it's a built in webcam. I've never dropped it or something like that. I really want to...

that is because you dont know that it takes a group of HP drivers to make that work, NO JUST ONE.
why post lacking what OS is there, most have 11 choices then.
windows 7 64bit or what? the bits matter too.

my HP Elitebook must have a working USB2 chip(and ports)
if not the camera is dead, due it using USB2 to comm.
and the camera has 2 makers, and must match.
here is the magic tool from hp, smart agent

the full PC support is here, ever heard of HP.
lets go to HP real now, the REAL DEAL.
this PC had 6 OS choices new. XP, Vista, w7 32/64bit
so if you look and pic the right OS, there
you get the right drivers. (hint, leave BIOS alone)

or boot and hammer F11 and go back to day one.
your PC was probably slammed,'
someone use Non HP disks to restore the OS. and now F11 dead forever and the special HP drivers are missing or WRONG.

slammed means the PC is not 100% authentic,anymore.
#1 way to do that is installing a new HDD , wrong.
#2 using Microsoft disks, (not HP)

1000s asked this here, and answered
and 10,000 at HP, you are not the first nor the last.

I have HP dv6701au laptop. previously it was loaded with Vista, but now i have installed XP. The problem is that i can't get the appropriate drivers for my laptop. i had already asked the same from HP...

Before downgrading from Windows Vista to Windows XP you should always confer with your computer's manufacturers website to look up your model and see if they support the downgrade. Often times the only way for you to downgrade is to have it done before receiving the computer, since a majority of the hardware on the laptop is made specifically for Vista and is not backwards compatible. Looking on the HP website, I see that they only offer a very limited number of Windows XP drivers for your system, which tells us that downgrading is not possible.
I would recommend that you consider not downgrading but rather upgrading to Windows 7 as it is a much more stable and functional OS than its predecessor Windows Vista. You can even run Windows 7 in Windows XP compatibility mode so you can enjoy the benefits and upgrade of Windows 7 but still have the Windows XP feel and functionality. I will be writing a How-To/Tip on Windows XP Compatibility mode today so you can be on the lookout for more information on that.

Scanner will not function

See this info re vista driver, not needed for 6110xi and advance features no longer available.

and also note on same page...
"You might find that some of the advanced features are no longer available when using this basic driver. You can upgrade to an HP product that is fully compatible with Windows Vista if the advanced features are necessary"

and also note Scanning with Windows Fax and Scanning
NOTE: This feature works only with Windows Vista Ultimate, Windows Vista Business, and Windows Vista Enterprise
Your disks I don't think will help, looks like it is case of Not fully vista compatable, there are also issues relating to your old HP Director software ie...

"In October 2006, Microsoft released Internet Explorer 7. The HP Director software that shipped with some HP products introduced between 2002 and 2004 may not be compatible with Internet Explorer 7. The HP Solution Center software, which replaced HP Director software, does not exhibit this issue with Internet Explorer 7."
