Step 1:

You can check this by first of all clicking 'start' then on the right hand panel click 'run'.

Step 2:

In the dialogue box that appears you will need to type 'dxdiag' (without the quotation marks) and press 'enter'.

Step 3:

This will bring up a new window with a loading bar at the bottom of it. Wait for it to fully load.

Step 4:

On the initial page, under the tab that says 'General', near the bottom it should tell you what version of DirectX you are running.

Step 5:

After this, you will need to click on the tab at the top that says 'Display'. This will take you to a new page. On this page there should be a box on the right with the heading 'Drivers'. The final piece of information in this box should say 'Driver Model: WDDM ...' (The ... indicates the version number that you are running.

HP pavilion N5435 XP upgrade to Windows 8.1 ?


Windows 8.1 crazy enough has different hardware requirements than Windows 8. This has not been recieved well as it has left many people stranded on window 8 without being able to update to 8.1. here are the following requirements for Win 8 for both 32 & 64bit versions. Just remember if your machine does meet these it may not meet requirements of 8.1 so I would suggest you look up the requirements for 8,1 before you do anything. Processor 1 GHz Memory (RAM) 1GB 2GB Graphics Card DirectX 9 graphics device with WDDM 1.0 or higher driver HDD free space 16GB 20GB

IF your Notebook meets all other specs you would need the the above device/driver. which may or may not be compatible with the Toshiba, which was pre loaded with Windows XP.

I have formated my hp pavilion dv6233se i cant find a driver for two base system device and a coprocesor... i upgraded my laptop to windows 7 ultimate... where do i download such drivers? ive been trough...


Good luck finding Vista Drivers if the manufacturer doesn't have them. some things you can force XP drivers to work on Vista /7 i'll let you know right now if your graphics card isn't supported with Windows 7 your SOL using the standard VGA adapter driver. you can't force XP graphics drivers... Windows 7 graphics drivers are WDDM drivers not XPDM. i just went through this with my Dell latitude D610 laptop.

(this isn't part of the answer it's just my experience with vista/7 display drivers)

Microsoft said because the Intel 915GM is lacking hardware scheduling it doesn't meet WDDM standards and Intel can't release a WDDM driver for it. so i'm stuck with standard VGA with No Aero and a system rating of 1.0 because of graphics while everything else is at a 3.2 or higher. i guess for me its back to XP...... or vista (LOL ya right)
