HP ProBook 4510s drivers for Windows 8?

by Amirsabanovic / January 28, 2013 7:05 AM PST

Does anyone know if HP or Microsoft are planning on releasing Windows 8 drivers (I'm specifically looking for sound and graphics drivers) for the ProBook 4510s? I'm on the 64-bit Windows 8 Professional.

I don't have sound at all, and videos are choppy and slow.

OK. When I try to install the HP Instant Support add-on for Google Chrome, it tells me that it's not supported on my computer.

support through windows 7. The best bet is to contact the manufacturer of the devices themselves. Typically laptop vendors don't support OS's that come out after the machine is available unless you get one of those systems that advertises upgrades to the new OS. Microsoft includes generic drivers in the OS because the sometimes the laptop vendor modify them. HP probably won't support the system either because Windows 8 is installed. I had an issue once on a Gateway where I upgraded with the retail version of the new OS and they would only support if i bought from them. The problem was with the original hardware (graphics card) in the system and when I replaced I realised the graphic card was not functioning at full capacity from the beginning.
