Does HP have a program that will automatically download all drivers for a particular HP laptop (similar to the Lenovo Update and Drivers tool that searches for, downloads, and installs all necessary drivers, BIOS, and firmware updates)?

If so, what is the URL hyperlink I can download this program from?

The HP laptop is an HP Pavilion av5000 laptop.

Check the downloads page for your computer.  I have one for my printers.  I recall turning off the update program for some HP computers since it was fairly obnoxious.  I can't find it on this computer.

Does anyone know what the exact URL hyperlink is for me to download this program from HP's website that will automatically download all of the drivers for my HP laptop?

Word of caution.... You shouldn't update drivers just because they have newer versions... Only update them when needed, or if the new one fixes a security flaw/functionality issue....
