I recently upgraded my CQ60-113EE to Windows 8 [didn't even bother checking if it is compatible with Win 8, but WTH]. Only trouble I'm having is that I still did not install any BIOS and Drivers for this model. Issues I have encoutered so far includes, but not limited to:-
- Sound seems to go on and off. Sometimes I can hear sounds then sometimes I don't.
- When I watch videos online, it lags. Checked my Memory and it's good.
- Internet sometimes disconnect.
Are these drivers related?
Here is my laptop's complete info:-
HP Compaq Presario CQ60-113EE
Processor:- Intel Pentium Dual CPU T3200 @ 2.00 Ghz
RAM:- 2.00 GB
HDD:- 120 GB
Video:- 700MB Dedicated Graphics
HP Support only has drivers up to Windows 7 but I'm already hooked with Windows 8. Please help.

the wifi orange light does not change to white light after upgrading to windows 8 OS from windows home premium. i am using pavilion dv6-7011tx laptop. this is very frustating as theres no wifi as well as bluetooth connectivity, the wireless button key solution is useless. HP guys plz give us a solution we are waiting over a month. the issue is with the bios update f13. while using it with the previous bios update the button worked fine.

Just goto your laptops driver page and download old bios and install it.
Make sure you connected the charger.
Hope this helps.

"Windows 8 BIOS updates for older systems are limited by the BIOS chip size. Such systems will not be capable of supporting Windows 8 features like Secure Boot and GPT drives....."
There is something here that I do not understand. The UEFI bios has a smaller chip footprint, as a lot of what used to be there is now offloaded to the dedicated disk area. I have a dv7-6cxx, and from looking at the dv7-7xxx uefi bios size, I don't understand why my machine is excluded. I was especially disappointed that I bought my machine during the "Special Windows 7 to Windows 8 upgrade deal", but my machine does not support all of the features of Windows 8. What gives HP?
