Re: HP Pavilion 17-e016dx

If you only have a default standard VGA adapter listed then yes, you need to install the graphics driver.

 

To install the graphics driver, run the AMD Mobility Radeon Driver Update Tool at the link below.

 

It should find the correct graphics driver for your model.

Re: HP Pavilion 17-e016dx

Thanks guys, this has been a big help. 

 

With that said, I have installed all the driver successfully but the one driver I thought I would have no issue with. The Graphics Driver. For reason I can't explain my PC will not recognise that I have and AMD gpu and is stuck using the windows default driver. I've tried every single thing I can think off but it will not work. Does anyone have any suggestions? Is there a bios setting or somthing?

 

"AMD Radeon HD 8550G graphics with up to 2158MB total graphics memory" on the APU. But it wont seem to recongnize it.

Re: HP Pavilion 17-e016dx-wireless

I just purchased this laptop a few days ago and sometimes my wifi works but the majority it can't connect to any network. I've trouble shooter the problem and checked the router. All of my other devices connect and the laptop simply won't. I decided maybe I should download the drivers just in case they are out of date but there are none listed. Could some one help me out? If I can fix this issue I would like to not have to return it since the wifi is the only down fall. Thank you.

Re: HP Pavilion 17-e016dx

I'm not sure how hot HP will be about linking to Lenevo website, but I was able to finally find a graphics driver that works for me.

Re: HP Pavilion 17-e016dx

Good find!

 

You can also use this HP W7 x64 driver for a variety of AMD graphics adapters such as the one in the Pavilion 17-e016dx:
