Does anyone know if I can get the drivers for my laptop (from anywhere else), so that I can upgrade to windows 8.1 pro? HP no longers supports it.

 

Thanks

Hello @peaches1001

 

Thank you for joining the Support Forum Community!

 

I came across your post requesting drivers for your Pavilion dv6196ea Notebook and wanted to reach out to you. 

 

The supported HP drivers for your system are located here. I understand you are trying to upgrade to Windows 8.1 on that system so you may want to check the Microsoft documentation and running the Windows 8 Upgrade Assistant listed there. 

 

If you wish to say Thanks for my efforts to help, click the Thumbs up!

 

Thanks!

Thank you for coming to my resscue, I had almost given up trying to find any drivers. I still think I can upgrade to 8.1 or even 7, but previously on trying I kept getting errors, which might have been down to not having updated drivers.

I will access the page through my laptop and see how things go.

Thank you again and will come back and post as solution if all goes well.
