Printing in colour

HP Recommended
Example: Pavilion
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi.

About 5 years ago I bought a HP pavilion running windows 10 and envy  5540 printer as a package. Last month I bought a new pavilion running windows 10 and cannot get it to print in colour. The old pavilion prints in colour but the printer options page doesn't even give me the option to select colour. ( according to the web I should get a box under the "print quality" box but I don't get that box?

I have all the new drivers etc and am puzzled what to try next?

Thanks in advance.

Thanks. I managed to find a solution in the community. It required deleting everything related to the printer, then performing a run.exe command to find an embedded driver. After I deleted that and restarted the computer I reloaded the printer and it worked.

 

Thanks for your help

 

John
