HP Pavilion dv6-6016tx Windows 8 Drivers

 HP Pavilion dv6-6016tx also known as HP Pavilion dv6-6016tx Entertainment Notebook PC is one of the HP pavilion DV6 series. It use intel chipset and AMD drivers. There are DV6 model which HP release official windows 8 drivers for it, but this model isn't one of them. The good news is most of the hardware is similar to the one that already tested by Hp so theoretically it will work. The drivers also tested by few users who reported which drivers work for them.

Note that if the driver not labeled with windows 8 32 bit or 64 -bit mean it is compatible with both architecture. 
Some drivers like Wireless have more than one drivers, so you have to choose base on the laptop specification. If you didn't know which to install test which work for you. Installing wrong wireless driver wont harm your system, but make sure to uninstall previous wireless driver from control panel before continue to test with another wireless Driver.
