Pavilion DV6-3132TX WinXP downgrade
I have Dv6-2060ea with the same processor, but with a different graphics card. I used MS Virtual PC to install a virtual Windows XP and it works very well. You don't have to downgrade to XP. Just use the MS Virtual PC (it's free) or Virtualbox. It worked for me, even on linux.
There is no drivers for Windows XP on my machine. There is a guide for XP downgrade on this forum in the operating system section. Have a look at it...
I bought a HP Pavilion dv6 - 1205ee Entertainment Notebook PC, which came with a preinstalled windows vista OS. I've been loking it downgrade to windows Xp windows xp is supported on this machine that some drivers are available on this link.
This link provides all the necessary drivers. No chipset, audio, video, lan, graphics, utilities for windows xp. Please let me know where I can get all the necessary drivers.
Thanks for the info. I saw him yesterday in the evening but do not have enough time to post in return. I appreciate the efforts of all those who created the guide.
consider this thing to solve... closed.
I have this hp pavilion dv6 bought in 2012 in Singapore. This laptop came with a pre-installed windows 7 Home premium 64-bit. Earlier this year, I got the free update of Windows 10 and I was happily obliged to update my windows 7 to windows 10.
Few things I know, updates do not automatically at level my other drivers and software that was running smoothly in my laptop before upgrading. That was include my external hard drive I used to back up all my files once a month. My external hard drive has been iomega eGo 2 TB of capacity.
To cut the story short, I now want to downgrade to Windows 7 Home premium 64-bit, one I had before, as many of my software are more able to run smoothly, and my hard drive with all my important data is now inaccessible, whenever I plugged the HDD in my pc.
I always kept my original product key for windows, but I can't find a reliable source where I can download it again and reinstall it to replace the windows 10 today running on my laptop.
Can someone help me with this?
Ive followed the downgrading to xp post and I everything works except for HP Pavilion dv6-2106ea network controller, so wireless doesn't work. can someone point me in the right direction please as it starts to me the nerves...

As I posted there, I bought this HP Pavilion dv6-1334us years. The original operating system is win7.
I don't like the w7 and tried to downgrade to xp. The title of help from this forum, succeeded.
Now, the XP ceased to support by MS and Chrome being also withdraw support.
I have to install win10 to replace the good XP.
I downloaded the software MS w10: "win10_1511_English_x32.iso" (2. 8 g). It is now in my
Hard drive. I had no experience to install a *.iso software! How to clean install or upgrade even? …..
I could learn the concrete way?
I read your post about wanting to install Win10 and wanted to help.
While you MIGHT have improved the Win7 PC to Win10, unfortunately, there is no "upgrade path" for older operating systems. This means that you can not run the upgrader and choose to keep anything of the existing BONE.
Instead, you must do a clean install.
You do this by creating the installation Win10 - DVD or USB media. Since you have the ISO, you can choose which of the following statements to make, based on what you need to start your DV6:
(1) USB stick (preferably, because it's faster): download RUFUS, install it, run it and select the downloaded ISO file. This will create a USB bootable Win10.
(2) DVD: Download ImgBurn, install it, run it and select the downloaded ISO file. This will create a bootable Win10 DVD drive.
Then, start from one of them and follow the instructions.
Once completed, you should have a working Win10 install.
If all the drivers are missing, then come back to these forums and ask for them. He has "Trusties" here who are experts looking for drivers for older PCs.

I have a Pavilion DV6 3122TX laptop. System would block extensively when I ever access any file, was not a virus or whatever it is, I discovered it was the HD due to the error at startup screen "error of hard disk, hard drive 1 (3F1)", I ran all the auto controls and diagnostics but nothing improved. So I formatted the disc completely deleted all partitions even recoveries and other (my bad).
My recovery disc can not be read by the laptop DVDRom Red flashes for a few seconds and then nothing happens, "said no system disk. Replace the disk and then pres any key blah blah blah... "The drive is fine I checked. I changed the boot options to boot from a CD/DVD internal.
I need as soon as possible a working windows as a temporary solution. I can't install Windows 7, it seems because of some lock (turns on it was unable to detect the HARD drive). Windows XP cannot see the player because of the requirement of AHCI driver (cannot switch back to IDE) due to the lock of the BIOS. Then I tried the method of slipstream AHCI driver, now, here's my problem I just can't find the AHCI drivers for my laptop since I can not connect to Win to check with CPUz. Can someone direct me to text-mode drivers for this laptop at the wake in winxp x 86 using NliteOS. I'll take the laptop to be fixed at a service center next month, but now I need a solution. Even if you can fix my recovery solution, it would be great.
I can access the hard disk using Linux. So the HARD drive is ok, please do not refer me to change the HARD drive that is not an option right now. (HARD drive was the problem)
Sorry for this long post
Thanks in advance...
Hard drive error, hard drive 1 (3F1) is the disk failure hard try loading in the Bios pass Diagnostics, perform the test, if it fails, you will need to replace the drive. In case your hard drive is not detected in the Bios, you must reinstall the part of the rear panel.

I have a HP Pavilion dv6 A1U55AV who had a hard drive failure. After replacing the drive and the installation of the operating system, I was able to get all the drivers reinstalled except bluetooth. First of all, the HP support site gives me three options... Looks like it should just give me a. Which should I use?
I tried to use the Intel PROSet Bluetooth Driver, but I get the following error on my machine (FYI - Windows 7 Professional 64-bit Service Pack 1 is my operating system).
I'm using the correct driver, and if so, why the installer does not work?
If you are sure that your laptop came with built-in bluetooth (the Realtek 8188CE wireless card can come in a combination or card bluetooth not combination), then this is the bluetooth driver you need for this wireless card.
I just started my laptop HP Pavilion dv6-6b09sa (running on Windows 7) to find that the sound icon is a red cross next to him and he claims that "no speakers or headphones are connected. In Control Panel, it says that the AMD high definition Audio Device is not plugged in.
As far as I know, I did nothing to cause this.
I have already tried:
Restore the system to yesterday at 22:00.
Instalation of a TDI driver on the HP website, but I don't know how to disable/change/remove the old driver. I am completely ignorant of these things.
Please help, I am at a total loss.
You are welcome
Try the following.
Download IDT Audio Installer on the link below and save it in your downloads folder.
One time finished, open windows control panel, open Device Manager and open sound, video and game controllers. Right click on the IDT device and select uninstall - also, you should get a command prompt to delete the current driver, check the box allow this and then proceed to uninstall.

Hey guys. I have a laptop HP Pavilion dv6-2155dx with a Intel Centrino Wireless - N 1000 wifi card. The card was to die for a long time now and about to go off completely. All other PCs and phones connect properly to the internet here, except that this laptop connects, but drops to around every 15 minutes, limited connectivity or so and I have to turn off the wifi and then turn it back on to operate for another 15 minutes. Its incredibly annoying and I need help to make sure that I have buy the correct replacement so that it will work. Here is the info I have:
HP Pavilion dv6-2155 x
No. WA781UA #ABA
Intel Centrino Wireless - N 1000 wifi card
Running Windows 7 64-bit OS
All the drivers are up to date, the computer is free of viruses, spyware, etc.
Basically, I need to know if there is a model specific card Intel Centrino Wireless - N 1000 that came with this laptop that I need order. I've seen several different of these cards for sale online, but they have all the different numbers and I just need maybe a link or something to show me the exact replacement I need.
Thank you very much for your time and help!
Yes, you need this one
The maintenance manual does not list a Centrino Wireless - N 1000 card. You must not only the correct chip, but he must have a part number of HP. Probably your card has this number on it, on a label or on the label that the number of "SPS" and it will be 6 numbers and a dashboard and then three other number 001 usually.
The 5100 card is dual-band 2.4 ghz and 5 ghz so is in fact a better map and will work.
Post back with more questions.
