Printer Driver No Longer Recognized

So at one moment my printer was working, the next it wont print and it says that my driver no longer is recognized.  I have had a bit of strange issues with the printer set up in the past where it wont recognize my computer is on, but I have manually put in the IP address and it works again.


So what I have done now:

  1. Tried to unistall the software and reinstall. Nothing, same message.
  2. Tried to find updated HP software,didnt work.
  3. I spent almost three days working with HP and they tried the same options, including using a generic driver and it still did not work.
  4. They said it must be my computer and Windows 10 was not fully installed but it has been fine for a year. 
  5. So I have no idea what to do?

I have a Lenovo Yoga

HP Envy

Windows 10

I work from home and I can not print. I can do it from other devices however but that aint real helpful.

Re: Printer Driver No Longer Recognized

Hi clcommander14,


Thanks for posting and welcome to the forum!


Could you please provide some more information on the Yoga unit you're using? Did you perform any changes to the system prior to the printer no longer being recognised? It could be something to do with the network as you previously mentioned that you were able to connect to it when entering the IP manually, you tried this again?

Did someone help you today? Thank them with a Kudo!
