    Last Updated: February 17, 2014 I've decided to take on the duty to post the latest drivers that are compatible with the following notebooks. It is part of my ongoing, informal commitment to help assist those who had performed clean installs on their HP notebooks. Please let me know if you find newer drivers or other devices so I can update this post!

    [B]* The Pavilion dv7-429X series is not supported in this thread.[/B] If you currently have one of these notebooks, please visit [URL='http://forum.notebookreview.com/hp-drivers-software-forum/556469-drivers-hp-dv6-4xxx-dv6-6xxx-dv7-5xxx-dv7-6xxx-envy-14-2xxx-envy-17-2xxx-intel.html']this thread instead.
    [B]Drivers[/B]
    All of these drivers come from HP's website, Microsoft Update, and from other reputable websites (including other manufacturers). All of the drivers here are also WHQL Certified or digitally signed drivers, available as of the date when this post was updated. These drivers should be compatible with the notebook series stated above, but I am not responsible for technical difficulties that can occur as a result of improper driver installation! Following along the same lines as the other driver threads, the process of installing and updating drivers is for [B]ADVANCED/EXPERIENCED users only[/B]. Average users can use the drivers located at the [URL='http://www.hp.com/support/']HP support portals -- they're the safest and simplest way to go in terms of drivers for your specific model. Some of these drivers may work with notebooks other than the stated brand and models, but this is NOT guaranteed. [B]USE AT YOUR OWN RISK -- only install these drivers if you know how to revert the changes that you have made should any problems be encountered.[/B] Intel Chipset Device Software
    [B]Important Information[/B]
    [LIST] [*]
    [*]To ensure that all device drivers are updated, simply execute the downloaded setup file using the [B]-overall[/B] parameter.
    [LIST] [*]
    [*]Example: If you saved the downloaded file as infinst911autol.exe to the root directory of C: drive, you can launch the Run command (Windows key + R) and insert "C:\infinst911autol.exe -overall" in the Open field (without the quotes). Press OK to begin the interactive installation process.
    [/LIST]
    [*][B]Starting with Intel Chipset Device Software package version 9.2.0.1016, the Intel Rapid Storage Technology driver may become overwritten with the driver that exists in the package if it is installed. Should such an instance occur, reinstall the Intel Rapid Storage Technology driver afterwards.[/B]

    Intel Rapid Storage Technology
    [B]Important Information[/B]
    [LIST] [*]
    [*]Intel Rapid Storage Technology was previously known as Intel Matrix Storage Manager.
    [*]It is highly recommended that you install this even if RAID is not configured on your system. See [URL='http://www.intel.com/support/chipsets/imsm/sb/CS-020784.htm']Intel® Rapid Storage Technology (Intel® RST) - Product overview for more information.
    [*][B]If you are having problems with the Interactive Setup wizard, use the INF Install method instead. This allows the driver to be installed using the Device Manager - Update Driver wizard. Once the driver is installed, you can try the Interactive Setup wizard again to ensure that the software is correctly installed.[/B]

    First "real" updates to this thread. :)

    06/02/2010
    • Updated Intel GMA / HD Graphics to version 8.15.10.2119 [15.17.4(.64).2119].
    • Updated Synaptics TouchPad driver to version 15.0.17.0.

    At the time of this posting, I realize that there isn't many who have these notebooks yet. I'm still in the prepping stages -- one thing I need to add is the SimplePass Identity Protection Software and TouchSmart suite.

    • Updated links for Synaptics TouchPad driver version 15.0.17.4.

    06/25/2010
    • Changed "HP ProtectSmart Hard Drive Protection" to "HP Mobile Data Protection Sensor."
    • Updated HP Mobile Data Protection Sensor to version 4.0.10.1 (thanks Axel Foley).

    I'll be looking into the HP SimplePass Identity Protection software -- from what forum users are reporting, this seems to be the DigitalPersona Personal Fingerprint Reader Software. I may replace SimplePass with DigitalPersona since users are having better experiences with it.

    Some recent updates to the first post:

    06/28/2010
    • Updated HP Quick Launch Buttons to version 6.50.17.1.
    • Updated MediaSmart Webcam to version 4.0.2829 (3.2 C2).
    • Updated HP Mobile Data Protection Sensor with previous version 4.0.5.1.

    06/30/2010
    • Removed HP SimplePass Identity Protection Software.
    • Updated ATI Radeon graphics driver compatibility.

    07/01/2010
    • Added Intel Turbo Boost Technology driver version 1.1.1.1007.
    • Updated LightScribe System Software to version 1.18.6.1 (thanks sercczionelabus).

    I removed the SimplePass software simply because it was not supposed to be compatible with these notebooks; I will post a DigitalPersona (rebranded SimplePass) release in the near future. Also, I would like feedback on the Turbo Boost Technology driver since it may or may not work.
