The following describes the manner in which to download and install drivers and the things to be remembered when doing so:
- Download the drivers from the Internet
- Update the operating system for better support
- Download from authentic sites
Download the drivers from the Internet
The drivers needed to run the Bluetooth® device on the HP EliteBook 8530w can be obtained from the Internet. If the software is not functioning properly due to an update or changes made to the system hardware, the driver details can be downloaded from the Internet. The drivers can be obtained from the HP website. The drivers that support Windows Vista as well as the integrated Bluetooth® devices are available on the website for downloading.
Update the operating system for better support
The Windows Vista operating system may not support the new hardware and device drivers. This problem can be resolved by updating the operating system. The operating system which is outdated will not support new drivers. Update the operating system and its service pack in order to obtain the support for the latest hardware that is installed on the system.
When the drivers are not easily available, search online for drivers from other support sites, but care must be taken that the drivers are certified to be authentic and download them from sites that can be trusted. The private websites might have malware in the driver files that would lead to malware entering the system and causing damage to the system.
