drivers for 2840 win 7 64 bit

Hp multi functional 2840


win 7 64 bit


I am looking to get drivers for this or at least some compatible one's which work (to give both a colour printer and a black and white one - as in xp). I am not concerned about scanning as it has broken 8 months ago with a replacement part being unavailable.


I have tried following install instructions from the HP website but windows update is never available ( its 18:00 on Sunday night and I have been trying for 2 1/2 hrs to get windows update to work). I hope I am wrong but the fact I cannot download a file from HP and choose the option to add having the drivers suggests there might not be one. Can anyone help??

Hi lemmingman,


The driver for your printer should be there, it is the 2800 Series (see pic below):

Here is a good walk-through on how to install drivers from Windows 7:


For future reference, the Color LaserJet 2840 is a commercial printer. I recommend posting in the forum for HP Business Support for a better chance at finding a solution.


Here is the link to the Commercial Laserjet board:


Also, here is a link to the support page for the HP Color LaserJet 2800 All-in-One Printer series:


Hope this information helps!
