Hi richierich1992. Welcome to EightForums.

Are you using the compatibility mode to install the driver?

I take it Driver Genius is an online driver support site. I'm not one to use these and don't believe much in using 3rd party programs to fix an OS and/or maintaining them. I just think MS supplies enough tools to do so. Consider me a "purist".

Can you get to device manager to update driver using "search for" options? Or look for the proper driver on HP site? Use the compatibility mode if not an 8 driver?
