Just trying to get this post near the top on a search for the other poor sods out there like me.
I was given the link
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/soft ... =pv-7543-1
by an 'online technician'. Whether it will work for everyone or whether 'Vance' did it for me personally I don't know, so if the link doesn't work for you, go to hp.com and go through the 'contact hp' link and find the option to 'chat with online technician'. It took maybe 5mins 'til I eventually got to 'chat' with 'Vance', he of course ignored all my proddings as to why I couldn't find the above link by entering my mother board details etc.
Hands up if you hate global domineering corporations like hp as much as I do.
