How to Turn On the Bluetooth on an HP Pavilion Entertainment PC
By Nick Davis
HP Pavilion Entertainment PCs contain a variety of programs for viewing movies, listening to music CDs and creating DVDs. The computers also come with a built-in Bluetooth component that lets you connect wirelessly to headphones, cellular telephones, speakers and other Bluetooth devices. Bluetooth works like a wireless Internet adapter. You can turn the Bluetooth component on to communicate with the devices or turn it off when you don’t want your HP Pavilion Entertainment PC to connect to Bluetooth devices.
Click Start and enter “HP Wireless Assistant” in the “Start Search” box. Click the “HP Wireless Assistant” search result to launch your computer’s Bluetooth utility.
Click the “Turn On” button next to “Bluetooth” within the HP Wireless Assistant dialog box. A blue light tower icon will appear in your HP Pavilion Entertainment PC’s System Tray indicating that the Bluetooth component is powered on.
Click the red “X” on the “HP Wireless Assistant” dialog box to close the utility.
- Your HP Pavilion Entertainment PC will automatically detect Bluetooth devices once you turn on your computer’s Bluetooth component. Make sure you power on any Bluetooth devices so your computer can detect them.
