Manually Change Printer Driver Windows 10 Install Update
I upgraded to windows 10 on my laptop. I can print ok, but cannot scan reliably. After I wait maybe 15 minutes or logging off and then logging back on I can successfully complete another single scan; then the process starts all over again.
I un-installed and re-installed the software a number of times and now it thinks there are three network printers installed. I want to get back to square one and start over as if I never had a HP printer on my system.
When I try to initiate a scan from the printer it eventually fails indicating there is no connection. The printer works perfectly with my desktop running Windows 7 professional, and another laptop running Windows 7 Home Premium. Prior to upgrading to windows 10 Home on this laptop the printer worked perfectly also. Please help me completely uninstall my software and my printer from my system so I can start over.
I will be glad to help you. Please let me know if this resolves the issue by marking this post as " Accept as Solution ". On a side note: Every time it fails at different places with an error and quits. Also, have removed all HP related programs from the startup menu. The specified module could not be found. This does not happen when I open my admin account. Does HP have some sort of program to completely remove HP drivers and software from a system as many software manufacturers do?
If enter in the search box "uninstall l3" or "uninstalll3". After installing the software, try scanning. Look for 3rd party firewalls and disable then, as some times can block the scan.
It is causing me to get way behind on everything, not just computer stuff. Hopefully this will be resolved this weekend and will be able to get back to solving this problem in a couple of days. This weekend I finally had the chance to reload the printer software on my laptop. I am happy to say that so far all appears to be well.
I was able to scan several times in a row from my laptop running Windows 10 home, then again with my desktop running Windows 7 Professional. Don't know if it made any difference, but while installing the printer and driver on the Window 10 machine, I had both of the Windows 7 machines in sleep mode.
