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.

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.
