Pavilion DV8 Quick Launch Firmware upgrade missing!

The firmware upgrade solving problems with capacitive touch bar,  "Fixes an intermittent issue where the capacitive touch button for the wireless LAN inadvertently activates. - Fixes an intermittent issue where the capacitive bass/treble scroll zone inadvertently adjusts. " point to a broken link SP53677.exe. Please, solve it ASAP, because my quick launch bar goes crazy long time ago.

This patch did not work.  My dv8 still has the wireless network turn on and off repeatedly.  Just like it did before I installed the patch.

I hate to tell you this, but this firmware didn't fix the problem, it's faulty hardware when they made it.

Hi,

This Firmware Upgrade did not help. I still have the problems particularly with the WIFI Connection.

It is nessesarry to give us a tool to completely inactivate the concerned Quick Launch Buttons.

End the HP processes (Task Manager) doesn't really help.

This patch does not work, and may be worst than any workaround found now from years (alcohol on sensitive part of laptop, remove battery / power supply to avoid any static

 

I bought this laptop there 3 years ago and always had this problem.
 And no, I didn't wanted to send this laptop to hp support for a unknown lap time.

 

It's unbelievable that such problem, a MAIN FEATURE for a laptop (you know, WiFi, a technology that comes from last century) DOES NOT have a clear an reliable solution.

What can you with a computer sometimes network works, sometimes not ?

 

Nothing personnal againt the HP support, but I'm really angry with designers.

It's one of the most fail in last decade industry product design.

 

And there is no solution.... A pity...

 

No more HP products.

After couple months of the DV8 being launched, i notice they stop making them.  I bought new hp laptop, with complete new design, so far no issues.  NO quick touch buttons. I got dv7 quad edition.
