Having trouble download drivers for a HP Laserjet pro m201 dw on Windows 10- 64 bit oper sys.

Example: Dell XPS 8930
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I'm having trouble downloading drivers for HP laserjet pro m201dw on a Dell XPS 8930 Windows 10 - 64 bit operating system with a 64 based processor.   I have the original printer disc but I can't get anything off of that.  Any feedback would be appreciated.

  • Try a different browser is one idea, of course.
  • Check the browser you are using to be sure it is not trying to update - or needs you to restart the browser because it just did update.
  • Check your browser security.
  • Check the source - only download hp software from HP.
  • Check to make sure Windows is not waiting to be restarted after an update has been installed - "waiting" is usually benign but it is possible that the browser is impacted if Windows updates are "halfway" installed.


For those reading:

At this writing, there are still a number of drivers, the firmware, and other information for this printer at the Software and Driver support website


For example

Full Solution Software
HP LaserJet Pro M201dw, M201n, M202dw, and M202n Printer Full Software and Drivers

I've tested the download - that works.  I cannot test much beyond this - I don't have this printer model.

** Printer Software – Blocked in Security Software **


Check your Security Software to make sure the printer software is not being blocked.  Most Security software will allow you to make an exception for applications / software you want to use on your computer.


If you make changes to the security software setup, Restart your computer and log in.
