How to find all Vista audio and graphic drivers for the specific model on the HP website?

[ Edited ]

     Important information


        You should test all Vista audio and graphic drivers which are on your model support page.

      When you will successfully install any:

      a) audio driver - please test your sound quality, mic and headphones. Choose this driver which gives you the

                                best results.

      b) graphic driver - please check your graphic card temperature.


      When normal installation will fail, then try to run this unsuccessfully installed file in the Vista Compatibility



      Make older programs run in this version of Windows

      Remember to uninstall the old driver first before installing other one.

3. Choose ' Next '.


4. Click ' Software & Driver Downloads '.


5. Use the dropdown selector to select correct operation system and click ' Next '. Choose:


       ● ' Microsoft Windows Vista ' if you are using Windows 7 32 bit;


       ● ' Microsoft Windows Vista (64 bit) ' if you are using Windows 7 64 bit.


6. Click the Plus sign sign next to your Audio or Graphic driver. Newest release of drivers are listed first , but not 

      always the best solution. Previous and sometimes better working drivers are on the next page, found

      by clicking on ' (Previous versions available) ' link. You will be taken to a page with list of all drivers

      starting from newest to oldest.
