HP Pavilion DV6 Windows 8 Driver



This drivers refer to :
HP Pavilion DV6-xxxx , I need to clarify this to avoid confusion with HP pavilion DV6xxx series. The difference is the dash "-" sign.

This model, HP pavilion DV6-xxxx is not yet tested by HP with windows 8 so there are no official windows 8 drivers released for this model. Here, i listed the drivers base on my research and it's specification. Do let me know if there are problems with the drivers.
