Update HP Printer Drivers Using Device Manager

1) Navigate to the Device Manager.

To open Device Manager, click the Start button.
Click and hold the Windows key, then press the R key (“Run”) to bring up the “Run” dialogue box.
In the dialogue box, type “devmgmt. MSC” as shown below.

2) Click the right-pointing arrow to expand the category “Print Queues” or “Printer,” as shown below.

3) Right-click on the HP printer listed in this category (if it isn’t listed, read this HP Printer Not Printing Guide ).

On the menu, choose Update Driver.

4) Select “Automatically search for new driver software” from the drop-down menu.

If the driver is current, you’ll see a message that says “The best driver program for your system is already installed.” The HP print driver does not need to be updated in this case.

5) Restart your machine after installing the print driver to ensure that the updates are completely enforced.

NOTE: If this doesn’t work, try one of the other options mentioned below. Alternatively, you can run a free scan by downloading Driver Support right now!

2) After you’ve found these things on your printer for phase 1, go to the HP support website by clicking here.

3) Go to the HP Support website and look for the Printer Drivers section.

4) Once you’ve found the appropriate section of the website, check for your “HP (your model name)” printer.

5) If the HP support site correctly locates your printer, the printer driver page will load. After that, you’ll need to locate the appropriate driver installation kit for your Windows operating system.

On these pages, you can find a variety of download options, such as Firmware, Software-ePrint, Utility-Diagnostic Tools, and finally Driver packages (Full or Basic).

6) Once the file has been downloaded, locate the.EXE (executable) file you received from HP and right-click or double-click it to run it.

7) Allow the installation to complete and locate your printer; however, this tool does not notify you of future driver changes and may require additional configuration to get your printer to function properly.

Remember that Driver Support will keep track of your HP printer drivers for you as a service, ensuring that you still have the most recent versions.

Is it still the case that your HP printer isn’t printing correctly? HELP! You’ve downloaded all of your HP printer drivers.
