After you upgrade the system to Windows 10, if your HP Deskjet printer doesnt work as you expected or encounter problems, it most properly has driver issues. In this case, you need to fix the driver issues by updating the drivers.
New system always has driver compatibility issues, especially for Windows 10. For many manufacturers, they have not released Windows 10 drivers, as Windows 10 was released not long ago. So HP may not release Windows 10 drivers for your printer model.
HP has declared that Most HP printers in use with Windows 7 or Windows 8 will continue to work smoothly without the need to reinstall drivers. If you upgrade from Windows 7 or Windows 8, your HP Deskjet printer should have worked with no problems. Or you may need to install the latest Windows 10 driver.
Following are the common HP Deskjet printers which have Windows 10 drivers. If your printer is one of them, it supports Windows 10. To quickly locate your printer model, hold down theCTRLandFkeys. In the search box that displays, type the printer model number and pressEnterto find your printer.
If your printer doesnt have Windows 10 driver, you can check if it has additional drivers, which may be right for Windows 10. The additional drivers areBasic driver,Universal Print Driver,PCL 6 driver,HP Enterprise driver,HP Host-based Plug and Play (PnP) driver.
There are three methods below you can use to update the drivers. They are two traditional methods and one more effective method.
Go toHP Customer Support Software and Driver Downloads. Then enter your HP model number to find your product. After that, you will be directed to the download page. You can find the right drivers there. If you can find Windows 10 driver, your printer definitely supports Windows 10. (example: j110a).Usually, you just need to double-click on the downloaded file and follow the on-screen instructions to install the driver. If there is no Windows 10 driver, try the additional drivers.
1. Enter your HP Deskjet Printer model then click onFind my product button.
2. Select System version as Windows 10, the click onUpdatebutton.
Use Windows Update to update the driver
Some printers have drivers installed through Microsoft Windows Update. So you can try updating the drivers through Windows Update.

3. InUPDATE & SECURITY, clickWindows Updatein left pane.

Just bought an HP OfficeJet Pro 8715 printer to replace an old 4620. I followed the instruction sheet included with the printer to install wirelessly on our network router. When I look at printers on my laptop, I see the 8715 as a fax and as a printer, however, the note beside the printer listing is that the driver is not available. I have spent three, or four hours, trying to download (both from the internet and using the CD accompanying the printer), and install, the printer software, and driver, and continue to get an error message saying the printer cannot be installed or connected to my laptop. Seems like HP has put some pretty crappy instructions on how to install a brand new printer; so, I have a brand new printer that I cant use. Can anyone help me???

I own an HP Officejet 4632 for approx. one year and had experienced no problems with Microsoft Windows 10. Starting three months ago, when I reboot, the computer does not recognize the printer. I have received different error messages (the last one 1/5/2016) was USB devise not recognized. To solve the problem, I delete the printer in the control panel (Control Panel Hardware and Sound Device and Printers), reload the software and drivers, and then Windows 10 recognizes the printer. I have reloaded the drivers from both HP and the original CDs that came with the printer. I also receive automatic updates for Windows and HP.

Is the HP Officejet 6100 ePrinter compatible with the newer HP laptops? I have put in new ink, installed the drivers on the HP website and it still will not print the TEST PAGE in a satisfactory way. It is only printing the magenta portion of the test prints. When I try to print a normal Word document it comes out very faint and isnt even legible. I tried to email HP but they wont help me because my warranty ran out for said printer even though the computer is still under warranty. Please help me if you can. All the best!
This printer issue most probably is not caused by driver issues.
Please check if the ink is enough. And check if the the cartridge works properly.
