I would go to hp.com and search for my laptop. The dv8000 is a model line and not a model number so I can't try this for you. Use the HP supplied driver.
I'm not very computer savvy. After doing some file cleaning on my HP Pavilion dv8000 laptop, Windows XP, a prompt began to show up searching for the location of the TI PCIxx12 Flash Media Controller. I found a page on cnet (http://download.cnet.com/Texas-Instruments-PCIxx12-Integrated-FlashMedia-Controller/3000-18490_4-93417.html?tag=mncol;pop) with a button for downloading this software. But, when I clicked on it, it took me to the TI website on which I cannot find the desired download. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
