Re: HP Update does not work on Windows 7

The HP Update software might not be looking at the right places as it is not designed for Windows 7. I suggest you uninstall that software and try using HP Support Assistant which is compatible with Windows 7. It can be downloaded from the following weblink:

Re: HP Update does not work on Windows 7

If you did an upgrade from Vista, that was version, 4.x


For Windows 7, you need to upgrade to the Win 7 version, 5.x


You can go to and enter your model number.
