I don't have HP bluetooth but Bluesoleil but the process of connecting and pairing generally remains the same.

Make sure the following is done in Advance.

  • Bluetooth switched On in Both Devices. (The headset should have some sort of LED to indicate bluetooth status. Generally it is a Green Led which blinks steadily when searching for available bluetooth networks and stabilizes when connected. Its color could be Red or it could be switched off when bluetooth is set to Off).
  • Devices set to Visible / not hidden. (Don't worry about headset, it is always visible)
You will have to go the My bluetooth places in "My computer" or "Right click a Bluetooth Icon in the System Tray. You select your Device & set it to scan for available Devices in Range. When it detects a device in Range, you select "Pair" in the Options generally you get by a Right Click. When asked for a Passcode, Enter 0000 for it (it could be 1234 or something else for your model but generally is 0000 for all such headsets) When you get the message that Pairing is successful, you can use the Headset.

You may have to select the bluetooth Audio in the sound configuration of your VOIP application where you want to use it.

Below are Screenshots of how I pair my mobile phone for File Sharing. The last one shows the two Drives on my phone where I can copy & paste files using Windows Explorer.
