HP Recommended
zbook 17 g3
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

hello, ive an issue where i couldnt connect my thunderbolt dock to my monitor via display port, there was no video, then i decided to update all my drivers and i came with the dock firmware update 1.41 Rev.A , the tool  updated with no errors and the display port video started working but the performance was very slow so then i recover my windows with the cloud recovery tool and created the original media installer to try a windows fresh install. the result was the same so, i found the firmware 1.53 Rev.A and when i tried to update an then i got an error, any clues on the matter?thunderbolt error.jpg

latest firmware availble should be this

SP96414 , 20190527, HP Thunderbolt 3 Dock - Firmware , 1.77, Dock - Firmware and Driver

link for text file:

link for exe file


as sometime softpaq download is not 100% good, it may stop without error, verify that the file size is 9183 KB or even better use filezilla the download it.


from CVA file:
