I am trying to install the driver for this printer on a new PC setup. On the HP website it tells me that I am to refer to the list of built-in drivers on the OS. In the list of drivers built-in to Windows 8.1, however, I cannot find the driver. The closest I get is the 3540 Series. My question is where can I find the driver, if I am unsure if the owner has the original install cd.
I am right now tangling with a Windows 7 system that won't run (regular) Windows Updates - so far, "fixes" have not definitively "fixed" anything.
Although not precisely the same issue, I suspect that the little Windows Update in the Driver-pull (to update list of printer drivers) is running on the same (or similar) protocol as does the (regular) Windows Updates. (Driver list is not updating on the system where Windows Updates fails.)
When it is working, "Normal" update to gather the printer list is (depending on your broadband speed) somewhere between two and (less than) four minutes (personal experience).
Of course, Windows 10 Pro machines are running as expected. No help, there.
Waiting for backups to complete on the Windows 7 system; if / when I have something to contribute, I will post back (or update this post).
