    Thanks for replying

    On that site on the select software page if it says current next to the certain drivers does that mean its already the one i have or its the current driver available and i should download that?

    Sadly Hp haven't got to the stage of autodetecting if your drivers are up to date

    That site is just showing the currently available most up to date drivers

    So do i update everything that says current or just the graphics part? And is the nvidia geforce 8400m/8600 better than the intel 965 chipset family one that i have?

    i swear i been trying to find answers on this since the time i woke up this morning
