Download HP Drivers And Software For Your Computer

| May 4, 2010 | 21 Comments

Hewlett Packard has made it convenient to search and download HP drivers for your computer. Normally, HP will ship a recovery or restore disk along with a driver and applications disk that contains all of the necessary software to run the hardware on the computer.  For instance, the sound card on the HP motherboard will need a piece of software called a driver to make it operate.  Without the driver, the sound card will be useless.  Frequently, users will tell us they no longer have the driver disk, so this page provides detailed help in obtaining a HP driver for your computer.

Before you reformat your PC, or if you realize you have misplaced the the HP driver disk that came with your HP computer, you should visit the HP website and download the software drivers.  Try HP Drivers and Downloads for easy access to the appropriate driver downloads. You may need to know the serial number or model number of your PC to find the drivers.  If you happen to be on the HP computer, they have an auto detect feature that will help to identify the HP model number and take you to the page you need to be at.

Download HP Drivers and Install

Installing HP drivers is normally a painless process, but if you have reloaded the Operating System manually, you may have found that nothing works correctly.  For instance, your display might be stuck at 600 x 480 resolution with 256 colors or the you will not be able to get onto the Internet.  This is because the drivers haven’t been installed for the hardware.  If you navigate to the Device manager, you’ll probably see a lot of errors next to the hardware icons. Normally this is in the form of a yellow circle with an exclamation point inside.  Either that, or you will see numerous Unknown Devices.

After you download HP drivers, install the and then go into the Device manager (START>CONTROL>SYSTEM>HARDWARE>DEVICE MANAGER) and remove these unknown devices after the driver has been installed.  Then reboot the machine. XP should auto detect the new hardware and then load the hp driver you had previously installed.

      Using another computer, visit the HP website and download the appropriate driver for your model. You can then go into the control panel and update the missing drivers from there.

    • Dave Dave says:

      You don’t need the serial number. Just go to hp.com/Support and put in the model of the laptop in the Drivers and Software section. You should be taken to a page with the drivers and manuals available for you to download.

    i have lost my feature software. How can i got it.

    • Dave Dave says:

      All default software should be downloadable from their website. If it was anything special, it would have come on an applications disk.

  12. masak says:

    sir i format my lap top and installed win7 but now my screen is not touch and hp could not find my product. so i could not download my drivers form hp what can i do?

  13. masak says:

    and my laptop is pavilion dv3-2270ev

    • Dave Dave says:

      Masak, it sounds to me like you are missing the drivers for your computer. Go to the HP website and search for your specific model. Download all of the drivers and then install them. After the install reboot the computer. If it’s still not working, go into the device manager and look for any devices that have a yellow ! next to them and then delete it. Reboot and and then it should work.

      This is definitely a software driver issue.

    There is no sound in my laptop. That feature of sound has some sort of a across therefore I think that’s what’s stopping the sound from coming out. What do you think is the problem in this case? PLEASE HELP OUT!!!!!
