i know the thread topic sounds confusing, but those were the best words i could think of to explain what i needed help with :) ..

ok so i just bought a new laptop AlhamdulilALlah, and now i want to get the best out of it.. its an hp dv6-6c02tx.

im gonna be getting a lot of games soon inshAllah, and ive heard u should keep drivers, specially graphics card driver updated for the best result.. i searched hp, and couldnt really find anywhere to check for driver update.. could anyone help me with that?

also, any tips on how to ensure best performance from a new laptop? there arent really many bloat ware software, so i dont think reinstalling windows is necessary....

also, should i download drivers from hp website or search radeon website? what about third party softwares that keep drivers up to date?

Do not use the reference drive from AMD. Only use the driver provided from HP for HP DV6 laptop.

No, windows update will install a driver to allow your GPU to work, but it will not be the most recent one.

You are right. Can't find anything. I wouldn't worry too much yet since that laptop is a new product. Contact HP and ask them for help (your laptop is still under warranty).

Catalyst control centre is use for changing settings like multiple screen, colour, game quality (force)...
