More than likely HP is not going to support hardware for Windows 8 on any system purchased before Oct 1st 2011. Most Windows 7 drivers will work in Windows 8. You say this problem has been going on for over 8 months. Is this when you upgraded to Windows 8?
Have you tried going back to Windows 7 to see if that resolves the issue?
Please let me know.
