Here is the link to the hp data sheet on the bluetooth:http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c00186949.pdf
My model is a t (core duo) - DV8230us to be exact.
Bluetooth does not show up in device manager as indicated (but I know the card has bluetooth). Also, the part where it says to go to start > all programs > software setup ..... I do not have "software setup".
I have the driver installed from the restore disk that is for the bluetooth...but I don't see any bluetooth software.
WeAreNotAlone: In another thread you posted bluetooth software - where is this from? Also, what is - ESUPDATES2.
Chris: I know what you are referring to about the icon as that is listed in the above linked sheet. However, I do not have that anywhere on mine that I can tell.
I'll tell you - I really like the machine. But getting it set-up has been a major pain in the a**....with NO help from HP. And I'm not a novice.
Any help is appreciated.
