Hello KeMO89

When did you purchase your laptop? If you go to the following link you can enter your product number to see if HP has tested the computer with Windows 8: HP Windows 8 Upgrade. Has HP tested your computer with Windows 8.

If you purchased your system prior to 1st October 2011, HP has not tested or developed drivers for these systems. Therefore an upgrade of such systems may be difficult or impossible. HP is providing upgrade instructions and drivers will be available for all Windows 7 systems sold after 1st October 2011.

Hello KeMO89

I can't speculate on driver availability. The information I provided is the extent of the information I have available to me.

Simply put, all the laptops that are issued before October 1, 2011, the company Hewlett Packard leaves without further support.
All updates to windose 8 users are doing on your own risk. Bad!

Very Bad indeed! HP is s***. I'll never ever buy a computer from HP again!
