I have a HP Pavillion dv6 with:

AMD A6-3410MX APU with Radeon HD 6520G

8 GB RAM 64 bit


I had a blue screen error. Reinstalled windows 7, I tried installing the recommended drivers for the dv6, all worked except the graphics drivers.


I have since upgraded to windows 10 and it says the correct drivers are installed but:
"Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43)"


Also, the brightness adjustment setting button (physical button ans well as software slider) no longer works. The laptop also seems to be running hotter (CPU over compensating?)


All basic display is unaffected, but I haven't tried with games/graphics intense software as yet


If anyone has any ideas on whether this is fixable that would be great - I was hoping to wait another 6 months before upgrading laptop!
