Instructions to install drivers HP LaserJet on Windows 10/8.1/7

These instructions are for how to install on Windows 10, the screenshots should be pretty similar for windows 8.1 and windows 7 too. Please note: every major update that microsoft releases for windows 10 (which happens twice a year) removes this driver so you will have to follow this guide again when you install the major windows 10 updates. I suggest you bookmark this link and store the installers on your computer.

Download either the Windows 32bit or 64bit driver from this Link or click this image below.



  1. After you Download  Driver either on you the Windows 32bit or 64bit ,Make sure that your printer is turned ON.
  2. Connect your printer to your computer, you will see this screen leave it to install and close it once it is finished.
  3. Run your Driver after you download depending whether you are installing on 32bit windows or 64bit windows. Click “unzip” then click “ok” and then you will see the following screen:
  4. Click “Yes”
  5. Select “Traditional Mode” and click “Next”
  6. You will briefly see this screen:
  7. this screen will then appear:Select “Add a local printer or network printer with manual settings” and click “Next”.
  8. Select “Use an existing port” and click the drop down box and select “DOT4_001 (HP Print Device)”
  9. select “HP Universal Printing PCL 5 (v6.1.0)” and click “Next”.
  10. Rename the printer example “HP LaserJet 1010” then click “Next”.
  11. You will see the above screen for about 20 seconds or so, then you will see this screen:
  12. select “do not share this printer” and click “Next”.
  13. Select “Print a test page” in order to test the printer, you will hopefully see the screen below screen and a test print will be printed, then click “Close”
  14. wait a few seconds and the following screen will appear, it will carry on installing with some different messages then the final message will be this, click “Finish”:
If the test print didn’t work then switch off your printer and switch it back on, it will likely start printing your test print if you wait for a few seconds. If you go in to ‘control panel’ – ‘devices and printers’ you will see your printer now and it will be set as the default device. You may see a printer with the same name under the “unspecified devices” section, just ignore that.That is it, your HP LaserJet printer should now work on 32bit and 64bit versions of Windows 10/8.1/7.
