Re: 3030 drivers for Windows XP

Thanks for your response.

 

I went to the hp site and had my computer scanned for printer drivers.  It listed a lot of drivers which it said needed to be updated.  I thought they had already been downloaded and installed years ago.  But i downloaded them and tried to install them.  I was unable to since i kept getting the message that the file was already installed on my computer.  This makes me doubt that the hp scanning utility is really accurately reading my system since the updates for the printer were already on my computer. 

 

Thank you.

While I understand your frustration with the scanning utility, I am not sure I can help you. My only suggest would be to sign up for the "update now emails".

 

Please keep in mind that some of these utilities are designed for our consumer model printers and the printer you are asking about is a laserjet, which traditional goes into a commercial environment therefore a utility like this might not be as robust with its support.

Re: 3030 drivers for Windows XP

The drivers for Win XP for that device have not been updated since 2004. The only newer drives are the Universal Print driver options which, if you are printing just fine, you shouldn't need. Newer OSes included the drivers in the OS.
