Microsoft Windows 7 (32-bit)

I have searched for hours where to find drivers for my DV-6500 laptop dv6543ev with Intel Core (2) Duo proccessor, since I'm doing a clean install on it  When I search the driver site I only get the can't find your product error and even w/ using the detect my product app, also give me an error that nothing is detected. I'm mostly looking for Win 7 drivers but any that I can get my hands on will be appreciated. Anyone know where to get some

Hi:

Your notebook was never supported by HP for W7, so there were only Vista drivers available.

 

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

 

However, this reputable 3rd party website should have all of the drivers you need for your notebook

 

Download HP Pavilion dv6500t drivers for Windows Vista, BIOS and firmware (helpjet.net)

 

The Vista drivers should work, but you may have to manually install the graphics driver if the auto install method doesn't work.

 

Let me know if you need further assistance with this.

thanks for the reply. I found some drivers in that link and some other in the page of each part of my laptop. The problem may be is that the HP dv6500 does not support win 7 64 bit as well as win 7 32 bit. I' thinking to reinstall 32 bit of which i had as backup all the drivres.

 

Anyway thanks again

You're very welcome.

 

Your notebook supports 64 bit operating systems, or W7 64 bit would not have installed.
