Device drivers can also be found in the Microsoft Update Catalog, this is especially helpful if there is no HP support site for older computers.
Open the Device Manager > right-click the device > select Properties > select Details > select Hardware IDs > right-click the first of the hardware IDs displayed > copy and paste into the Microsoft Update Catalog search box
If the first hardware ID does not show a result, try the next one. The displayed search results can be sorted, e.g. Last Updated.
There are EXE, MSU and CAB files available for download from the Microsoft Update Catalog. EXE and MSU files can be installed directly, for CAB driver files you need to extract the contents of the cab archive to a folder. You can use a third-party archiver like 7-Zip.
In the Device Manager right-click on the device for which you want to update the driver, and click Update driver > click Browse my computer for drivers > click Browse button and select the folder with extracted files from the CAB file > OK > Next > Close
Sometimes a restart is necessary afterwards.
