    It doesn't look good, all I can find is very old posts with no 8.1 drivers. The thing with 8.1 is a device might work for awhile without specific 8.1 drivers on generic Microsoft drivers then stop. No idea why that is so but have seen it.

    Call HP and may want to consider replacing your wireless adapter with a newer one that also has BT. They aren't that expensive and are easy to replace in most cases. A bit like adding/replacing RAM.

    You're welcome and good luck, post back with results.

    Can always get a micro BT USB dongle also if you have the port to spare.

    It's been a while.
    Just wanted to report back and say that my problem is fixed. I didn't contact HP after all...
    My BT hardware got fried because of heating issues of my laptop (It's like HP trademark, or it used to be.... heating issues)
    Anyways, it's been resolved and my BT is magicly back! I used Device Manager auto find and it found it ^^
    Thank you again!
