HP Pavilion dv9608nr Notebook PC is not listed under windows 7 compatible models so HP will not providing the drivers for the same. So I have few suggestions for you:-
Step 1:Install vista drivers available on hp website in compatibility mode on your Windows 7.
Install using Compatibility Mode
To install a driver using Compatibility Mode
1.Right click on the Setup.exe and click on Properties
2.Then click on the Compatibility tab, enable Compatibility Mode
3.Select “Windows Vista RTM” from the drop down list, then click on OK and try again.
Install using Device Manager
If the above doesn’t work, use a utility such as WinRAR to extract the files contained within the self-compressed EXE package to a folder, and then use the Device Manager (Start > right click on Computer > click on Manage, and select Device Manager on the left hand side) to install the drivers. In Device Manager, simply right click on the device that you need to install a driver for and click on “Update driver software” and follow through the wizard, ensuring that you point it to the location of the files you extracted.
Step 2:If you want drivers for particular device provide the Hardware ID which will help me finding the drivers.
1.Open up device manager by right clicking on Computer
2. Click on “Device Manager” through the Computer Management Window
3. In the Device Manager menu, find the driver that is missing (yellow question mark).
4. Right click on that driver and go to “Properties”
5. In the properties menu, click on the “Details” tab.
6. In the details tab, click the dropdown and select “Device Id’s”.
7. When you have that sub menu opened up below, you should see Hardware IDs-PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_03D1&SUBSYS_14041565&REV_A2 (Might be a couple extra lines containing similar stuff, but the main things you need are the VEN and DEV).
8.With that data up, you should see “VEN_xxxx” and “DEV_xxxx”. These two things are Vendor and Device Id’s.
Provide both of these IDS and I will try my best to help you.
