HP LaserJet - Driver and software support for Microsoft Windows Vista

Introduction

This document provides information about LaserJet Printers and MFPs that are supported in Windows Vista, and where to obtain the driver.

NOTE: LaserJet printers and MFPs released after the Windows Vista release (early 2007) are not listed in this document as all newer products have Windows Vista printer drivers available on the product software CD. Use the product software CD to install the Windows Vista driver for these printers and MFPs.

To make sure you have the most up-to-date information, go to www.hp.com/go/alerts to register to receive support information via email from HP for software and firmware updates as well as security bulletins related to HP LaserJet Printers and MFPs.

Overview

The drivers for most LaserJet products are included in the Microsoft Windows Vista Operating System (InOS), for both 32- and 64-bit operating systems, and can be installed using the “Add a Printer” wizard. Use this InOS driver to enable the product's basic scan and/or print functions. For most LaserJets, this is the only driver available for Windows Vista and there are no additional drivers posted to www.hp.com.

Products where indicated in the table below do have drivers available at HP.com and might require the use of the Universal Print Driver (UPD)3.

After determining the available driver, either install the driver from the Add Printer wizard in Windows Vista, or go to www.hp.com/go/support to download and install the driver from www.hp.com .

Most print drivers created for LaserJet printers in Windows XP might also work in Windows Vista. Some products indicated with an asterisk * , or printers that currently use either a PCL5, PCL6 or PostScript driver in Windows XP, might be able to download and use the current XP driver to provide basic print functionality.

Footnotes

Footnotes
*
If your printer currently uses either a PCL5, PCL6 or PostScript driver in Windows XP, you might be able to download and use the current XP driver to provide basic print functionality. Most print drivers created for LaserJet printers in Windows XP might also work in Windows Vista.
1
Use the driver included in the Windows Vista operating system (In OS). The In-OS driver is included in Windows Vista and automatically installs for printers that are on a non-domain network with 30 devices or less. To manually install this option, use the Add Printer wizard.
Windows Update automatically installs the driver when the computer has an internet connection. If the company restricts access to the internet or Windows Update, contact the system administrator.
2
Internet connection required. If internet access is not available, use the In-OS driver. Manually install the drivers and software included in Windows Vista or Windows Update.
3
Universal Print Driver (UPD) provides print-only (no scan or fax) support. UPD includes an installer that enables either a traditional or dynamic mode install.
