HP software & drivers not updating?

July 24, 2011 at 16:30:02
Specs: Windows 22.02.2010
I have a HP Pavillion w/XP (32) and after getting several HARD errors for installs and updates I ran a system Scan which indicated out of date drivers and their software?

HP claims that ONLY HP can give me correct updates for Windows XP on their PCs, they want MONEY to fix - but their Hp Update program does not FUNCTION properly. Maybe we should revolt and call the BBB?

Maybe you should contact HP in this connection but be aware that only Microsoft can provide updates for XP. Update drivers for HP come from them.

What system scan are you referring to?

If it's one of those on the net avoid them as they are scams.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

"HP claims that ONLY HP can give me correct updates for Windows XP on their PCs"

Where's my hip waders, it's getting deep here.

That's hogwash. Windows provides updates to their software, not HP.

I also second Derek's statement.

It's a good day when you learn something

HP is the best place to get updates and they are normally free (so I don't understand the original post). However, they do sometimes come up as options in Windows Updates too.
