Driver Problems After Windows 10 Update

@GorGogia

 

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but the problem you're up against is that Microsoft only supplies drivers with the most basic functionality, and what you really need for FULL functionality is the specialized drivers written for the specific hardware found in your HP PC -- and unfortunately, there are no HP Win10 drivers for your PC. HP only guarantees Win10 compatibility for machines made after August, 2013. HP is no longer producing Win10 drivers for the older machines.
 
This means that your PC is most likely NEVER going to be fully functional under Win10 because the drivers it needs for full functionality simply do not exist!  This is especially true if your PC has switchable graphics because, in this case, the ONLY drivers that will work properly are the OEM drivers that were written for that hardware.
 
To restore full functionality, you would need to do a factory reset using HP Recovery Media to its original pre-installed OS.

Driver Problems After Windows 10 Update

Hello WAWood, thank you for taking time and replay.

 

I have Win10 about 2 years and it works perfectly on this machine, but every monthly system update it need renew some drivers, it was so several month ego too. But currently unable to find newes drivers.

I understand the cause.

 

But what I see, it should be following solutions:

 

1. dont update win10 anymore - if it is possible.

2. refer to MS sites for corresponding drivers

3. use HP Recovery Media 

 

Question:

 

HP Recovery Media will help to restore only drivers and not damage newes updates ?

 

Thank you in advance.

Driver Problems After Windows 10 Update

SOLVED: Beats Control Panel missing after a Windows Update.

This is for ANY HP PC that had BEATS installed but no audio after a MS Update..

1) From the HP website, download and install this driver: http://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp59501-60000/sp59654.exe

2) Reboot you PC. The Beats Control Panel will appear on the Taskbar after rebooting.

3) Right click the “b” logo and “Open audio control panel”

4) Put a checkmark in the “Speakers/HP”

5) If this worked for you, give me a thumbs up and share this solution with others
