HP is providing support tools including the following:
HP Accidental Damage Protection is part of the HP Care Pack service, and helps customers avoid out-of-pocket repair or replacement costs caused by accidents that may occur during regular PC operation.
HP Support Assistant is an on-product tool that provides a one-stop shop to help you maintain your PC and avoid or resolve problems using automated updates and self-help options.
HP is creating a designated Web support page for Windows 8. Customers can easily upgrade to Windows 8, obtain necessary drivers for their HP products – as those drivers become available – and seek answers to their other Windows 8 support questions.
HP’s Printer Install Wizard will be available for a majority of consumer printers and will help customers select and install their print drivers. The Printer Install Wizard is anticipated to be available at the support landing page.
HP will host a free Windows 8 Expert Day on the Consumer Support Forums on Nov. 28 to answer all customer questions about the new operating system and its compatibility with HP products.
