HP Drivers Problems
HP or Hewlett Packard is a very well-known and well-regarded name in the world of PC’s and related devices, covering products such as Laptops, Desktop PCs, Tablets, Smartphones, Printers, Monitors and Scanners. All of these devices need up-to-date drivers in order to work properly. Outdated, corrupt or missing drivers are the main source of the problems our users experience with their HP products.
A driver is essentially a piece of software which enables your PC to communicate with your HP PC or device. With the launch of new operating systems such as Windows 7 peripheral devices such as your printer or scanner will require updated drivers to keep working. It is therefore important to keep your drivers up-to-date whether doing it manually or using driver update software to automate this often tedious process.
HP Printers are very widely used and like other devices, if Drivers are not kept up-to-date there are a variety of problems that you may experience. These include:
- computer not detecting the printer
- erratic behavior such as programs freezing or crashing when trying to print (you may see the message “HPPCLM5.DRV”)
- unexpected print results such as blank pages or missing or random characters on the printout
