I have an HP Pavilion G6, which I upgraded to Windows 8. Here are the specs for the system:

When I upgraded I noticed some fps (frames per second) drop and ping rise on one of my favourite games, Ace of Spades. This game is remarkably simple, and as the developers put it "your grandmother's rig could run this game". Before the upgrade, the game ran fine. After, the fps decrease and ping increase led me to believe the graphics(fps)/network(ping) drivers might be to blame, so I went to the HP site to download the updated Windows 8 graphics and network drivers, link here:

When I tried to install them, I got this message for both:
"this computer does not meet the minimum requirements for installing the software"
1) Why would hp supply a driver on its sight that can't be installed on the system that has a page of these drivers dedicated to it?
2) I did some googleing into possible causes. One possibility was not having the right .NET framework installed. I checked, and do have the correct version. I also updated my BIOS, in case that was the culprit. What might be the problem here?
