About HP Drivers

Hewlett-Packard, or as it most commonly known, HP, was founded in 1939 by Bill Hewlett and David Packard. The young electronics company began developing and producing electronic measurement devices used by the U.S. Military. HP has since grown to become one of the largest electronics and computer manufacturers in the industry. HP produces state of the art technology that is used by the military, health care facilities and common users. HP has a diverse and comprehensive catalog of products including CAT scan machines to calculators.

HP is known by most for their desktop and laptop computers. These devices are developed and constructed almost entirely by HP. Other components are designed by HP and manufactured elsewhere. Certain components, such as the processor are licensed to HP but are not of their design.

HP computers are comprised of many different hardware devices that work together with Windows to provide the best computing experience the HP way. Each hardware device depends upon a driver to provide for its functionality. A driver is a small piece of software that contains all the instructions for operating and communicating with other hardware devices and the operating system. HP develops their own drivers for each individual hardware device that they produce. Each device requires its own unique driver in order for it to function properly and complete the operations it was intended for. HP attempts to improve the performance of their existing hardware by augmenting the driver with updates.

HP drivers remain in continued development after the release of the product. HP driver software developers try to update the driver by improving the way it operates the hardware device. Driver updates improve speed, performance, stability and compatibility. The updates are available to the public on HP's website, however implementing the latest driver may become a challenging task for most.

Common Problems with HP Drivers

Finding, downloading and installing the most current driver will typically fix any problems that are experienced while operating HP hardware devices. The original driver for any given hardware device often has bugs and other faults that have not been discovered and therefore have not yet been resolved. Many users often experience problems with new HP technology for this reason. Updating the driver will not only resolve the problems but will improve performance as well.

Many users face challenges when updating drivers. Finding the correct driver for all the devices in a single HP computer is a hassle and download times can be exhausting if you do not have a fast connection. Updating drivers can turn into a real job for most users who simply want their hardware to work and with the best performance.

Common causes of HP driver failure...

  • The driver is missing or corrupt.
  • The driver is out-of-date.
  • A previous attempt to update the driver failed.
  • A previous attempt to update the driver installed an even more out-dated driver.
  • The current default driver is the incorrect driver for the hardware device.
  • The device is damaged and needs to be replaced.

HP driver errors occurring within a single device are often easy to spot. If only the HP printer is malfunctioning, there is likely an error with the HP printer driver. HP drivers can become corrupted during the normal use of an HP computer. It is not uncommon to experience these kinds of errors from day to day. We've compiled a guide to manually fixing HP drivers.

The first and best step to take when troubleshooting HP driver problems is to first update the driver. Updating the driver will not only reestablish system stability but it will introduce improvements to the performance of the device. Updating the drivers for all hardware devices will strengthen the relationships between all of the hardware devices and allow the HP computer to perform greater as a whole.
