Hi, Claudio:

 

HP retired support for that model series since it is more than 10 years old.

 

That is why the driver page doesn't work.

 

If your notebook has an Intel processor, then this reputable 3rd party website has drivers you can use on yours.

 

The dv6-2150us notebook has an Intel processor and chipset.

ohhh thanks!

so it's something quite recent than...as I used it last January...

but it's quite unfair to remove the support without advertising it! I spent days trying to download the drivers!

and moreover other brands still keep bios and drivers for even more than 15 years!

BTW I downloaded all the drivers from the site you suggested and put them in the safe!!! hahahah

 

thanks again!

You're very welcome, Claudio.

 

Yes, I don't like HP's practice of doing this either.

 

There are lots of folks that have old PC's and like to keep them running for old times sake, and when you can't find drivers for them anymore, you are pretty much out of luck.

 

HP recently retired that model series' support, and now they are working on the dv6-3xxx model series.  ☹️
