Hello sidhuki,

 

Welcome to the HP Forums! I hope you enjoy your stay!

 

I udnerstand you would like to upgrade this computer to Windows 8.1. Unfortunately, I cannot advise this since there are no Windows 8.1 drivers for this computer. This is proven on this website: HP Pavilion dv6-6140tx Entertainment Notebook PC Drivers

 

Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns. Thanks for choosing the HP Forums. Have a great day!

Re: Hp dv6 6140TX upgrade to windows 8.1

I totally understand that i cannot upgrade my notebook to windows 8.1.But i would like to draw the attension of HP towards the fact that my laptop has a totally capable hardware and such a limitation on the software side due to lack of drivers from HP is not to be tolerated. Also other manufacturers have started giving support for upgrading to the latest verion of windows,so then why can't HP provide the same????? plz reply....

Ya... ! It strange to hear from a Company, which builds computers for users, and when they have their High Config. machines, and they have to undergo such a situations. I bought an i7, thinking that I won't have to worry for next 2-3 years, but, after the very next month, Windows launches 8 ! and here our Laptop manufacturer quotes something such lame !!
