Please provide the link to download the HP Wireless Assistant for dv6-6121tx as it didn't come pre-installed on my laptop.
P.S.I have tried googling and installed a wrong version incompatible with my laptop.

Finally I got my HP DV6-6165tx from a Store here, and yeah Its a very nice machine, Thanks to everyone who suggested me this laptop. But i am a lil worried because as i am new to this laptop i don't know anything about it, Actually i want to update bios and catalyst but i am not able to do that, please tell me how to do that, and yes at normal the temp is about 48c to 51c its it normal or high ? If its high please tell me how to fix it. i am not getting any information about ATI 6770m except in Device Manager , please help me.

yes , u can not see ATI 6770m in Device manager but U can see its is in 6700 series and Intel HD graphics( as Our Laptop haves 2 switchable GC)( under display adaptor)

Don't install Wireless Assistant. Its of no use.

Lol, battery wear is not directly proportional to time. After about 8 months my battery wear is 25.5% and I get around 2.5 hours backup with wifi on. Removing battery and using only adaptor is safe as long as you don't have any powercut, in which case your data might be corrupted.

And for those of you who were asking me the price of the customized dv6, its Rs.67000 for dv6-7040tx whose HDD has been replaced by a 160 GB SSD.

Don't keep battery idle for long. Keep the usage ratio at 6:4 (AC:batt).

This Hp call Line peoples are Fools , When I Asked him to price of 2 year warrenty+ accidental cover , He said , We can not gives accidental cover , we can give u only 2 year warrenty at 5500rs+ taxes ( which is still expensive )(compare to "SIMRECH COMPUTRONICS , DADAR offer me to at just 4500rs)

Please open the "HP Support Assist " software and then click on "Get assitance" and directly chat to Hp care , They will sent U....( U Just needs to send POP )

congrats bro....
update the latest bois from here Software & Driver Downloads HP Pavilion dv6-6165tx Entertainment Notebook PC - HP Customer Care (India - English) and regarding updating the ati drivers refer back to page 99 onwards. in idle situation my idle temps are around 45-50, so there's nothing to worry about. just ensure to use coolsense mode while gaming....

Thanks for the link, Now i have updated the BIOS but there is still some problem with CCC as it is not displaying the catalyst information in Information tab in dynamic mode, while in Fixed mode it is showing some information . When I clicked on the " Check for updates" it directed to ATI site and from there i downloaded a file of about 1.5 MB and it was written 12.6 there but still i dont see any 12.6 version in CCC, quite strange humn!! And while surfing internet the temperature is showing 65c huh , ( i have speedfan software ). Please help me . Thanks.
