    Even then, this series are issued the newer HP Simplepass 2011.


    Also, the features of the previous versions are there for a additional price which is $20 + $4 a month.

    I've got a DV7T with a Radeon 6770 coming in a week or two. 90% of my gaming is done on my desktop machines, but i will play games on occasion with this new lappy.

    Given that I'm a big gamer, keeping the most up to date vid drivers is important to me. I see that AMD has a download for the 6xxx series notebook cards. I'm wondering has anyone tried these instead of the HP drivers, and are they still compatible with switchable graphics and the power saving features?

    To my knowledge, the drivers provided by AMD do not have switchable graphics support. You will have to use the drivers provided by HP in order for this feature to work.

    At the moment, AMD only support switchable between AMD graphic chips only. Example, AMD to AMD.

    For yours, you have to use HP drivers until AMD releases their Dynamic Switchable Graphics which your model card is supported.

    Thanks for the info guys, that's kind of what I thought. I see the newest from HP are from Feb. Are these based off the 11.2 cats, or the 11.1s?

    • Updated HP Mobile Data Protection Sensor driver to version 4.1.7.1.

    The version that HP provides (8.810) is somewhere between Catalyst 10.12 (8.801) and 11.1 (8.812). :) However, it seems more likely based off of 11.1.

    Where do you download the DigitalPersona software from? I am assuming you have to purchase it and it is not free?

    I looked @ Strong Authentication, Data Protection, Fingerprint Biometrics - DigitalPersona and did not see it on their site for download.

    So the SimplePass software that comes installed on the DV6 and DV7 6000 series (Spring 2011) is newer than the one available under the drivers for the 6000 series:
    HP SimplePass Identity Protection 2011 Software HP Pavilion dv7t-6000 CTO Entertainment Notebook PC - HP Customer Care (United States - English)

    Version 5.0.1.455 Released 2011-01-28. If so what is the version that comes on the laptop?

    A note about above post, DigitalPersona no longer support this version as they are moving out of the consumer markets.
