HP 250 G4 - W7 x64 Drivers on HP Support Page do NOT work

HP Recommended
HP 250 G4
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

I have W7 Home Premium x64 installed but most of the drivers on the HP support page will not install.

 

For example, I tried all 3 VGA drivers listed but no luck.

 


Can anyone confirm that Windows 7 and drivers will run on a HP 250 G4 Notebook - or do I need
Windows 8 / Windows 10 ?

 

Thanks.

Then you want to use the chipset and graphics drivers labeled as Broadwell.

 

You may need to reinstall W7 and start from scratch.

 

There is full support to run your notebook on W7 x64, W8.1 x 64 or W10 x64.

Hmm .. I'm not seeing the word 'Broadwell' on any of the drivers listed.

 

Maybe I have the wrong download page?

You're very welcome.

 

The 2 Broadwell drivers you need to be concerned about are these...

 

Intel Dynamic Platform and Thermal Framework Client Driver - Broadwell/Haswell

 

This package contains the driver that enables the Intel Dynamic Platform and Thermal Framework firmware. Intel Dynamic Platform and Thermal Framework provide system temperature and power utilization information for the system thermal protection to function properly. This package is provided for supported notebook models running a supported operating system.

Intel High-Definition (HD) Graphics Driver - Broadwell/Skylake

 

This package provides the driver that enables the Intel High-Definition (HD) Graphics in supported notebook models that are running a supported operating system. If high-definition multimedia interface (HDMI) video output is supported, this package also installs the HDMI Audio Driver.
