If you want the stock bluetooth module you will have to either call hp and buy it from their spare parts dept. or go to a site like ebay to buy it. after you have acquired the card (and cable), you will need to disassemble the laptop and install the card in it's designated spot(I think it's located near the right had corner closest to you as you look at the laptop in it's normal use orientation. The alternative to this is to get a usb bluetooth card.

Dear Harry,

The top-left area in your TouchPad, where there is a small hole with an indicator light is also an on-off touch switch that turns the TouchPad on and off.

So, press and hold this area for two seconds to turn the TouchPad on or off.

You can see it better in the picture below, extracted from the laptop manual that can be downloaded from the link at the bottom of this message:



Hope you may find this information useful!

Best regards,

If this method below is not working, then your laptop motherboard is dying. You can do this: Unplug the ac adapter, detach the main battery, press the start button and hold it for 15 seconds, plug in the ac adapter, restart your laptop.

Looking at the specifications here, it looks like your model laptop has 4GB of RAM.

If you are finding it difficult to find a way to turn it back on do a quick restore to an earlier time and select a date before it happened this should put all the settings back to the way it was before it got turned off.

One possible reason is that you might have locked your trackpad. HP along with many other laptops have a designated button that locks your touchpad so the cursor doesn't move on the screen.
Above your keypad there's a small little rectangular button. Try pressing it and it should unlock your trackpad.
Give this a shot, and I hope it works!

I think you have a broken USB keyboard or USB port. Simply plugging in the keyboard should be enough to make it work. First try the keyboard in a different USB port. Test the caps lock to see if the LED goes on and off. Also try a different keyboard and also test it in a different computer.

1) Reset your computer.
2) Unplug the cable from the computer to the monitor and check to see if its damaged, if OK plug it back in.
3) On windows computer, click windows key / windows system / control panel / device manager / display adapters (click on icon) / Update driver

what computers.?? 1000's of models over 30 years. made
F10 is BIOS screens, so if that works, BIOS. and any screen
then the PC is not booting.
try booting to CD? *(a free linux live cd?) as a test.
if that works
run HDD tests. next
ill stop here, if you can get this far, we go to next step
F11 HDD reload the OS, if PC is 2006 or newer from HP.

what is a device? did you mean PC, a collections of devices and chips:? a PC Is not a DEVICE it is a system.(or machine)
why in the world not buy a new battery first? if charging fails.

mine sometimes go bad even 1 year old, when I abuse it. and
I fully expect that, if you read the battery makers pages, youd learn how that happens' (cycling the snarf out of it)
if i remove the word DEVICE and add LAPTOP OR PC

IF the Pc does not run with the battery (main big) out !
the power pack is bad. the PC will run forever on AC power, a fact, !!! I do so all the time,
or even the wrong AC pack used, (mixed up with other pc:)
get a new pack, get one matching your systems, needs (watts)
the laptops can come with 5 processor options and 4 graphic chip options, the worse mix is 100watts, HP will tell you that match.
but only if YOU tell your full service tag data....
that magic, nnnnnnnABA# number tells the HP pro what is inside this laptop and what power park is right
or just buy the 19v, 100watt pack.

here is real HP, fixya is NOT.
they can match you up as can the hp PARTS SURFER,

sure, get the Correct HP driver for this exact pc but, but but...
The windows sounds are dead. (do that yet>, CP + sound test)
CP = control panel
try to know , most HP made,
dv6345us, can have 3 sound chips as an option day 1 new!what you have is clearly stated in the service tag that you did NOT
post, the number ending in ABA# is THAT number.
the chip and PC and the unstated OS all must match

windows what? you never said so i cant match that either.
VISTA????????? vista 32 bit or 64????????
but the other way is what, sure, guess.
read the drivers at HP and try all there.
for sound chips (aka audio)

This HP computer is 11 years old. now. (2007)
HP dropped most support on it this old, (SOP)

one sound chip is Conexant AC -Link Audio
lets say you said (service tag) RV214UA#ABA
and you said VISTA> what works there.
the secret is deep, lacking full spec, from HP.
finding Conexant drivers is not easy, lots of hits all virus sites now.
lets first look .
does device manager show it as bad.
CP+DM see sound there. is it red, yellow or Unknown marked.
go to CP again control panel
click sound is the Conexant still there.
the window for sound has a speaker is it selected?
select speaker then properties lower right.
then pick enhancements
hit checkmark, disable all sound effects
click tab levels, turn up volume.
can you do all that, i bet not, its got bad drivers for this chip
VISTA btw is dead so asking MS to update driver is dream of dreams, hopeless, now and for sure forward.
you dont have the HP install disks so that source too is missing.,
leaving you , VISTA and MS and HP and conexant in the lurch.

if microsoft was not dead and your internet was alive (is it)
the remove the driver, and reload, it under device manager.
it then magically PnP reloads from MS but not if the MS driver servers are off line as they sure are. (1/2 or all) (ms secret this is)
Hard this is,::::, 1ST OFF, is HP ended support,
2nd VISTA support has ended at MS. (double dead)
3rd factor (bad) IS Conexant maker of chip and their Driver. IS DEAD. TRIPLE DEAD.
synaptics Bought out Conexant in 2017, and shows no support NOW. FOR THAT.

the Snaptics web site lists nothing on the words driver or conexant. zero support, but do call them,,,?
SO that ends that foray.

leaving all those malwares sites offering this driver, only. ? many we can find it this magical way. the FAMOUS DRIVER PACKS site. (all safe ask)

the one place on earth with no malware is here.
this is the vista set 32bit only 64 is on other page
there are 15 drivers for Conexant. there. get them try them.
end story

There should be a button on your keyboard labeled "PrtScn". It stand for "Print Screen". This will copy an image of your screen. Simply open Microsoft Paint or a similar software and select paste. Your screen shot should appear in your chosen software.

NO PC stated (model name and full number)
NO OS stated, is this XP? must we beg you to get hard key facts like this>?
what are you attempting, ?
the Finger print reader has many features, which one are you attempting?

yes, it can work but only works on matching PC and matching OS.
the HP pages there warn you,.it only works on the OS sold with PC. (eg vista or w7) HP web site on your PC is clear, ever look there?
my HP 8540w , works perfectly with W7 but not w10 !
i can not use the reader nor the security package, ever.
But w10 is happy there , FP reader stuff removed.

HP will not revise these drivers and apps for W10 ever.
see my point? In my example case.
there are 2 parts, the FP reader, driver.
and the security package ( vastly huge and complex !)

i say why use it at all?
do you have secrets on your PC? (you 007 agent?) 008?
or your soon to be published book ? (huge value)
or engineering work/ cad/cam, etc.
or valuable art, (or music composer)
or you are CEO or FCO with sensitive data? (accountant?)
if no, then avoid that.
The reader is safe but not the security HP applications:
look in the registry at all that complexity, and risk for that.

you can use the reader to
block BIOS boots. dead.
block the windows, login page.
or block specific apps, or all 3.
is say don't do it, at all.

But all that works on mine 100% on w7 only.
it does work but is still risky.
other apps do not like it , etc.
