Re: update graphic driver for windows8

Well, I appreciate your candor, but it's not necessary (but nice!) on this board; let me search a bit and see if you can upgrade the driver.

Re: update graphic driver for windows8

There are two drivers available, one for Intel and one for AMD; do you have any idea which video is on your laptop?

 

The drivers are available here (from HP)--they are unfortunately for Win 7---your machine may not support Win 8.

 

Did you try the Microsoft link for compatability of your PC with Win 8 before upgrading? The link here.

 

Good luck---you may have to go back, so you can move forward.

update graphic driver for windows8

It looks like this unit uses switchable graphics and has not been certified for Windows 8 by HP.
This site gives an idea of what to expect when upgrading to Windows 8.

Switchable graphics is a unique setup that no video card manufacturer will have drivers for as this is very dependent on the OEM's equipment (HP in this case).

However, there is a workaround that may work.
Try reviewing my post to see if this works. This has worked for some and not others, but it has the best chance of getting the AMD card in a switchable graphics environment to work with Windows 8 without official Windows 8 drivers from HP.
