Windows 8 is a different operating system than Windows 7 and requires (generally) new drivers specific to Windows 8. Go to HP Support , put in the model of your machine and the word 'drivers' and see what is available. HP may or may not have Windows 8 drivers for your specific model. You may have to go to websites for the makers of the specific peripherals and see if they have generic Windows 8 drivers for your specific hardware. Use the Device Manager under Control Panel to find what specific models of hardware you have if you don't know what they are so you can find the appropriate drivers. If you ran the Microsoft Windows 8 update tool, it should have identified specific problem drivers for you.

If you are using Windows 8, most probably your Windows 7 drivers wont work.
You can find the drivers for Windows 8 of your original HP components in HP website

I installed windows xp 7. i lost sound in my hp compaq 6820s pc. What do i do?


Your notebook model does not have windows 7 compatible drivers from HP. Hence,
I recommend you to run windows updates in the notebook which will download the generic drivers. To perform Windows update in your notebook, please follow the web link provided below:

I lost my instalation cd for hp laserjet 3052 printer how to install my printer


1. Go to support.hp.com
2. In the "Enter your product number" area, typ in LaserJet 3052, or whichever model your printer is. I was confused because in your question you also mentioned the p1008. Either way, just enter in the model name.
3. Under "Tasks for HP LaserJet 3052 Printer", the first thing is download drivers and software. Choose that.
4. Then, select your language and operating system. If you're not sure what operating system you have, right click on "my Computer" that is on your desktop, and go to properties. The general tab contains the information about what operating system you have.
5. Then, go to the "Quick Jumps to download by category" and choose "Driver"
6. In my humble opinion, I always pick the driver at the top of the list, because it is most updated.
7. Click the download button.
8. In the popup window, choose run.
9. This should start the installation process.

Forgot password to hp laptop how do i reset it.


I don't know what OS your HP laptop is installed with.

If it is Windows 8, Windows Password Hint, PIN code, Microsoft account can be used to login HP laptop. After logon successfully, change, recover or reset Windows 8 password is available.

If it is Windows 7, Password hint or another administrator account may help you. But if you don't have all of these, try password reset disk. Create it before Windows 8 locked or with Windows 8 Password Recovery tool is OK.
Besides these, Chntpw USB disk also works for Windows 7/Vista etc.
