Setting up printer

HP Recommended
HP ENVY 4520 All-in-One Printer
Microsoft Windows 11

I have done everything HP says to do to set up the HP Printer to my new HP laptop. The current status is Driver Unavailable, but I can't get any help to tell me what driver to download. Can someone tell me what driver I need to download?

 

Thank You

Thank you for posting on the HP Support Community.
 

Don't worry as I'll be glad to help, 

I appreciate your efforts to try and resolve the issue. Let's try these steps to resolve the issue: 

Download and run HP Print and Scan Doctor: Follow the steps from the link: Click here

 

Root level uninstall and reinstall printer drivers: 

  • Go to Control panel – Programs and feature – Select all the HP ENVY printer entries and uninstall them.
  • Now go to Control panel – Devices and printer – Select all the printer entries and remove the device.
  • Then press the "windows key" + "r" to get the "Run" window open - Type "printui.exe /s" and press enter.
  • Under print server properties, go to drivers - remove any entry there as well.
  • Again, go to run window, type – “c:/programdata” – Go to Hewlett Packard folder, remove any printer-related folders & files.

To reinstall, click here.
 

Hope this helps! Keep me posted for further assistance.

Thanks for the response, but it did not work. Same result as numerous times before.

 

Should not be this difficult, and never has been in the past.

 

Thanks again
