Re: HP Printer C3180

This update was to my daughter's computer.

To my knowledge there were no subsequent updates other than what Microsoft performs automatically.

Re: HP Printer C3180

Well unfortunately your were told incorrectly.  MS does not update drivers automatically.  You need to install the software and drivers for Win 7 now.

 

Download and install the full featured software and drivers here.

Re: HP Printer C3180

Sorry - what I meant was that MS downloads and provides updates automatically but not to 3rd party software.

The problem with one of the suggested downloads from HP is that it only applies to Windows 7 64 bit and not the 32 bit which is what my computer is.

Re: HP Printer C3180

Ummmm it is a drop down menu.  Try using that.  ;-)

Re: HP Printer C3180

The dropdown menu has no provision for a 32 bit machine

Re: HP Printer C3180

Yes it does.  You need to use the drop down and scroll.

Re: HP Printer C3180

I must be totally blind - I could have swore that I looked for a scroll.

I won't be able to try this solution until tomorrow or Tues.

 

Many Thanks for all of the help. I 'll report back after downloading.
