How to convert from Windows 8 back to windows

Posts: 37
Hi Guys,

I upgraded to windows 8 and now my GPU doesnt work on my laptop. I have tried updating my drivers, uninstalling my GPU, going on my manufacturer website, going on my graphics card's website, and nothing has worked. I am using the AMD HD 6770M and I have had no luck whatsoever. Anyone have any idea of fixing this? Or how to convert back to windows 7 because I am having a hard time trying to figure this out too. Thanks for the help in advance!

My specs are:
HP DV6-6100 Pavilion CTO Quad Entertainment July 2011 Model
CPU: Intel i7 2630QM
RAM: 6 gigs of 1333Mhz
Resolution: 1366x768

Your GPU is most definitely supported by Windows 8. Contact the manufacture for your GPU for further assistance. If it's not working then it's their driver/software that's the issue.

[EDIT:] Win8 Drivers not yet available:

Call for futher support.

Return to Windows 7, this HP must be using propriety HD 6770M that prevents usage of normal drivers.

Unless you wiped your drive, if you chose to upgrade from Windows 7, Windows 8 has an option to revert to 7 within Control Panel
