How to install a driver in Windows 10
The initial setup process is a significant challenge when using HP office equipment. The instructions given by the manufacturer are most often formal and difficult to understand, therefore users often make mistakes that lead to the loss of the equipment’s performance. We have prepared a detailed step-by-step algorithm to avoid errors when installing new devices.
The first thing you need to do is download the drivers for the HP LaserJet 1010 printer, which are available for download from the hyperlinks posted at the top of this page. You can also try to search for this distribution on the official website in the “Technical Support” section. The most important thing in this step is that you will need to unpack the driver files, which will be packed into an archive after downloading. We recommend using the free 7ZIP utility for this. You can also unpack the folder with the standard Windows utility.
Now we turn to the definition of information on the bitness of the operating system of our device. We are looking for the icon “My Computer” on the desktop and select its “Properties”.
If for some reason there is no such icon (for example, it has been removed), then open the search bar (it is located next to the “Start” menu) and enter “My Computer” there. Now we call its properties. A window will open, which contains all the data about the operating system used. We are interested in the line “System type”. We remember this data.
Now we turn to the “Control Panel” option, from where we will install and configure the printer. We enter in the search bar “Control Panel”. Further, among the set of icons for configuring the computer, select “Hardware and Sound”, where we are interested in the link “View devices and printers” – click on it.
The system will show us a list of all previously installed printers, but we are interested in the icon at the top of the “Add printer”. We click on it.
The installation wizard will immediately begin to automatically search for printers that were connected to the computer, but not installed. We do not wait for the end of this operation and immediately click on the link “The required printer is not in the list.”
In the window that opens, select the option “Add a local or network printer with manually specified parameters.” We put a mark opposite and click “Next”.
Now we check the port settings for connecting the printing device. There should be a checkmark opposite the item “Use an existing port”, and the port itself should be selected as “LTP1: (Printer Port)”. Then you can click “Next”.
The selected port LTP1 may not suit you and therefore, if the printer does not work, then select DOT4_001 from the list.
The system will redirect to the list of available printer driver files – there is no need to select any, just click the “Have Disk” button.
The installation wizard will prompt you to insert a disc with drivers, click “Browse”.
Now select the file named “hpc1015c” inside the files that we unzipped at the very beginning of the instructions. After that we press “Open”.
Now you must select the printer you want to install on your computer – HP LaserJet 1010 HB.
Then click “OK”.
There are very few steps left – one of them is to enter the name for our printer (it can be anything). After that we press “Next”.
You can set up the printer to use it over a local area network. Click Next.
The installation wizard will display a message about the successful installation of the driver files. It remains to click “Finish” to complete the wizard.
