Some PC motherboards contain a Bluetooth module that allows you to dispense with the need for a USB or PCI adapter. In this article you will find instructions to help you determine whether or not there is a Bluetooth module in your computer.

Ways to check if your computer has a Bluetooth module.

There are two ways to find out if your PC has Bluetooth:

  • 1. In the Device Manager.
  • 2. In the motherboard specifications on the manufacturer’s website.

The device manager option is relevant when the computer is assembled and working. Also, the method does not require you to look through the motherboard documentation to find detailed information on the manufacturer’s site. The second option is more suitable for users who are just looking at the purchase of the motherboard or have not found the exact information about the presence of the Bluetooth adapter in the Device Manager.
