    yeah I'd be real interesed in what this "expert" has to say for himself, after telling people that this was going to be "the driver"

    Tell him I'm still waiting for it to show up in the driver download page as he said also!.

    So anyway I guess this one is still about as close as you'll get for the dv6/dv7 models. or try the w7 compatable mode to install the W7 driver in W8, which some say also seems to work for some.

    dv6-6XXX (6490M/6770M/7470M/7690M XT)
    dv7-6XXX (6490M/6770M/7470M/7690M XT)
    ENVY 14-2XXX (6630M)
    Windows 7 x86/x64 8.882.2.3000 (AMD)
    8.15.10.2476 (Intel SG)
    7.12.0.7702 (HDMI Audio)
    23 Nov 2011 CVA, HTML ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp55001-55500/sp55092.exe
    Windows 8 x64 9.000.0.0000 (AMD)
    9.17.10.2843 (Intel SG)
    8.0.0.8808 (HDMI Audio)

    It's like I was telling you guys...this whole Windows 8 support thing is borderline _____ (substitute your own word here).

    From my perspective, HP needs to support whatever hardware that is out there on the market, with whatever technology they have sold. Similarly, unless Microsoft lists my hardware as not compatible, then I should have FULL support for it.

    Here are the cards for SP59850, please check your FULL Hardware ID against this list to determine compatibility with SP59850:

    Code:
    ATIR300="WDDM (R300)"
    AMD68E4.1 = "Radeon (TM) HD 6370M"
    AMD68E4.2 = "Radeon (TM) HD 6370M"
    AMD6760.1 = "Radeon (TM) HD 6470M"
    AMD6760.2 = "Radeon (TM) HD 6470M"
    AMD6760.3 = "Radeon (TM) HD 6490M"
    AMD6760.4 = "Radeon (TM) HD 6490M"
    AMD6760.5 = "Radeon (TM) HD 6490M"
    AMD6760.6 = "Radeon (TM) HD 6490M"
    AMD6741.1 = "Radeon (TM) HD 6630M"
    AMD6741.2 = "Radeon (TM) HD 6750M"
    AMD6741.3 = "Radeon (TM) HD 6750M"
    AMD6740.1 = "Radeon (TM) HD 6770M"
    AMD6740.2 = "Radeon (TM) HD 6770M"
    AMD6740.3 = "Radeon (TM) HD 6770M"
    AMD6740.4 = "Radeon (TM) HD 6770M"
    AMD6740.5 = "Radeon (TM) HD 6770M"
    AMD6740.6 = "Radeon (TM) HD 6770M"
    AMD6760.7 = "Radeon (TM) HD 7450M"
    AMD6760.8 = "Radeon (TM) HD 7450M"
    AMD6760.9 = "Radeon (TM) HD 7450M"
    AMD6760.10 = "Radeon (TM) HD 7470M"
    AMD6760.11 = "Radeon (TM) HD 7470M"
    AMD6741.4 = "Radeon (TM) HD 7690M"
    AMD6740.7 = "Radeon (TM) HD 7690M XT"

    @aleseba77, HOODY,

    I'm downloading (as this claims it supports my card); I'll post the list of cards supported from the INF shortly.
    @Alphastar this is my hardware IDs

    PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_6760&SUBSYS_166C103C&REV_00
    PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_6760&SUBSYS_166C103C

    PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_6760&CC_0300

    thanks for your help!

    AMD6740.7 = "Radeon (TM) HD 7690M XT"

    You know homes I don't even know what the hell I'm looking for anymore.

    What is this?? AMD6740.7 = "Radeon (TM) HD 7690M XT"


    these are my Hardware ID's for the Radeon they show some 6740 stuff, but nothing like a .7

    PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_6740&SUBSYS_185E103C&REV_00
    PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_6740&SUBSYS_185E103C
    PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_6740&CC_030000
    PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_6740&CC_0300


    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    updated

    Hmmm well OK looking at that list of yours this IS on the list at the very bottom

    "%AMD6740.7%" = ati2mtag_Vancouver_PXAI, PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_6740&SUBSYS_185E103C

    So I assume the 7 = 76xx cards, and it has my subsys numbers 185103C, so what ya think?? would it be a shot?
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    However, since its not listed on my driver download page it means it hasn't been certified by HP to work for my model, so I don't know how the Intel part would act even if the Radeon works.

    Yes, AFAIK you should be supported according to the INF file details in/with SP59850.

    @HOODY

    If you're going wait until HP puts this driver on your Pavilion 6C00 page, then by all means. According to the driver INF file, your card is fully supported by SP59850, which is what HP said as well.
