What drivers should I use for HP Envy 4 on Windows 8?

1. number and product name
HP Envy 4-1054TX

2 operating system installed
Windows 8 Pro 64-bit

3. error message (if any)

4. all changes made to your system until the problem occurred
Upgrade to Windows 8 Pro to Windows 7 Home Premium, 64-bit versions

I have recently upgraded to Windows 8 Pro and there are only 2 drivers available on the site for my laptop model: the Wifi and Bluetooth drivers.  Most of the drivers have been installed by Windows 8, but there are 2 elements in the devices without a driver, PCI Simple Communications Controller and another unknown device manager.

There are some drivers for the Intel 4000 and HD 7670 m but I did no switchable graphics.  There is no center of control of AMD, Intel just one.

To make things worse, my battery life has been reduced to 3.5 hours of 5.5 or 6.0 hours when using Windows 7.  I did all the usual settings in the power settings advanced, as well as for the Windows 7 install so the only thing I can think of is maybe the drivers from the chipset?

Any help I can get would be appreciated.


Hi brightframe,

Take a look at this document http://goo.gl/CO6uV , which covers some information, including topics on driver problems.

More than likely HP won't to material support for W8 on any system purchased before October 1, 2011. Some updates for W8, most drivers W7 will work in W8.

For anyone with Windows 7 and given update on Windows 8, can run the Upgrade Wizard software, it will scan your PC and report on what is currently installed on your PC is compatible with the W8.

Please let me know if it helps.

  • That must make the password stored in the JAGENT portfolio, and what JAVA_HOME should I use for the pw_agent_util.sh command?

    I configure the GoldenGate Plugin for OEM. There is a step to create the portfolio. The documentation is not clear on the role of the provided password. If I run the JAGENT as user oracle, it must match the password for the oracle user, or is this separate password? Also, should I use the jdk to OEM agent to set JAVA_HOME?

    ./pw_agent_util.sh - jagentonly


    Morning.  Good to see that someone is working on the use of the plug-in for GoldenGate in OEM12c.

    If you use the plugin, you will be much better with the preparation of reports on the processes of GoldenGate.  In order to get the plugin to work, the JAgent is necessary and can be downloaded in the distribution of the Oracle GoldenGate monitor (Agent Monitor configuration Oracle #GoldenGate |) DBASolved).  If you use the old plug-in, the JAgent is integrated with the GoldenGate Software (Oracle GoldenGAte( and later) and Oracle Enterprise Manager 12 c |) DBASolved).  I recommend you take the new plug-in!

    Now to the address that ask you the password. The password is stored in the portfolio under the House of GoldenGate ($OGG_HOME/dirwlt) and is used directly for the JAgent to connect to the EMAgent and connect with OEM.  The password associated with user name is configured in the $JAGENT_HOME (different depending on version, look for the Config.properties).  Then in OEM, the user name defined in the Config.properties and the password in the portfolio must be provided before OEM GoldenGate targets will come.

    The $JAVA_HOME parameter is dependent on the version of JAgent you want to run.  The JAgent to using the JDK 1.7 or higher.  The JAgent shipped using JDK 1.6.

    Thank you

  • Satellite A200-PSAE6E: I want to use Windows 7 - what drivers should I use?

    I have a Toshiba Satellite A200 PSAE6E, and now I want to use Windows 7.
    Only, I have a question, if the drivers are supported and what BIOS I need to use


    Windows 7 is not official on the market. Only the RC (Beta) version is available.
    This means that there is no driver specific to the Win 7 OS.

    But as you know the Vista is very similar to Win 7 and it is why some drivers (not all) should work and work with Win 7.

    Just test and check what can be used and what doesn t work with Win 7

    Maybe you could post some summary finall...

    Dear Sir/Madam,
    5 years ago, that I bought in the city of St. Petersburg mentioned above for laptop. I am
    professional programmer, Geologist, Geophysicist, mathematician.

    All this time, since I bought this laptop - I am pleased with him. Two other laptops, I bought over the last two years, were different from Toshiba, just in case
    port USB type, but none of the Dell could beat performance of Toshiba.

    Last month, in my Toshiba laptop, a SODIMM 512 MB PC2100 DDR SDRAM chip grilled and is broken down. I just can't find this type of RAM in the retail and online stores.

    Where to buy, to replace him.
    What should I do? What can I do? I got into the habit of my Toshiba already and can't get along without him.

    Need me an another 512 MB of RAM.
    Everything else - satisfies me.
    Really, truly yours, with kind regards and best wishes.

  • What settings should I use for the rear button focus put in place for the d5 mark 3? TIA

    5 d Mark 3

    When you press the menu button, highlight on (using the knob on the front of the camera) menu "C.Fn2: disp.» "/ Operation" orange. (it's the icon of a camera that has an index of points for a light meter below - right of the wrench, to the left of the star icon).

    Each of these menus on the 5 d III have several pages.  This is the 2nd page (the 2nd point from left to right) who has the category of "custom controls".  Note that (using the wheel on the back this time) and click on the set"" button.

    Which displays a menu showing each of the important controls on the back of the camera and what they do.  Highlight the icon for the shutter button (this modifies the behavior of a half-press) and change to 'measure and AF start' to just 'start of counting.

    "AF-ON" button (on the back of your camera) is probably already put 'measure and AF Start' (I think that this is the default factory setting).

    If you're not so much focus to enable back-button (which is probably already active) you're more "power off" the focus when the shutter button is pressed to halfway.

    Good luck

  • Satellite C850D - 11K - what CPU should I use for the upgrade?

    Is the processor possible to install the C850D 11 K to make it faster without the risk of overheating. Thanks in advance


    Your laptop is equipped with a mobile processor AMD Comal and possibly you could use the following processors:
    Processors AMD Comal A10: A10 - 4600M
    Processors AMD A8 Comal: A8 - 4500 M)
    Processors AMD A6 Comal: A6 - 4400M
    Processors AMD Comal A4: A4 - 4300M

    But first he must know that upgrading the CPU is not supported by any laptop manufacturer. These updates is therefore at your own risk. Maybe the device would serve, but there is a high risk that the BIOS would not deal with the new processor and the unit does not illuminate.

  • What should I use for a replacement of WinMail in Windows.

    I have msn (hotmail), yaho & gmail, but none of them will come when I'm trying to respond to the link sites for a response. If one of those that should be used, how it equal in Windows7?

    Windows Update has nothing to do with the upgrade of Windows.

    Unlike Windows XP & Vista, Win7 does not have a default email Client. [What were thinking?]

    You will need to install a (e.g. MS Outlook;) Windows Live Mail; Oiseau-tonnerre) , and then set it as a default for mail in CUSTOM (<>) Set Program Access and defaults of the computer before any function article send to or MailTo will become available.

    You will find support for Win7 e-mail Clients in this forum: http://social.answers.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/w7network/threads
