In almost every case, the full collection of the HP Software and Drivers at your computer's Website Support in Software and Drivers are for more than just one individual computer.

 

 

HP Support Assistant

 

READ:  Get help and Learn about the HPSA software

HP PCs - Using HP Support Assistant (Windows 10, 8, 7)

HP PCs - Troubleshooting HP Support Assistant - Windows 8.x and Windows 10

 

Reminder

  • HPSA is an Update only software - it cannot, for example, search out updates for software that is not already installed on the computer.  

 

OR

Manual Method - Find and Install Software and Drivers

 

Help / How-to:  HP PCs - Downloading or Updating Software and Drivers

READ Sections

For example:

Update specific drivers in Device Manager

Find driver updates on the HP website

 

Device Home Page

Open Support Home

Enter the name of your device

Select category Software, Drivers & Firmware

Open All > Peruse the list > Select, download, save, install appropriate Software / Updates

 

 

========================================================

Reminder – Manually Update the BIOS

 

How to install BIOS Updates:

Always connect the computer to AC Power and leave the power connected during the entire BIOS update procedure.

Select the option to manually install the BIOS update.

 

HP Notebook PCs - Updating the BIOS (Basic Input Output System)

 

HP Desktop PCs - Updating the BIOS (Basic Input Output System)

 

Open HPSA Software

Settings > Set to “Notify” as opposed to “Auto-Update”

Save Changes > Restart the computer and log in

Open HPSA

Check for Updates > Use the list to determine candidates for update

  • Click on each update in the list to see a short description of that package
  • If BIOS is offered, simply set to “ignore” or otherwise remove this update from list of potential updates
  • If desired:  Install other HP software and updates using HPSA or manually install those updates

 

 

Check Current BIOS version

Control Panel > icon view > Administrative Tools > System Information

System Summary - Check the information next to BIOS Version / Date

Same answer.

 

Some people like to use the HP Support Assistant.

Others swear they want full control over the process and always manage updates manually.

 

There is no "right" way.

 

If you skill level allows it, manual updates provide more complete control over the process.

If you prefer, use HP Support Assistant.

HPSA works for most people who want to use it.
